Update: Having a great time in Portugal!!

So far I have been having a great time here in Portugal!! My boyfriend decided to come last minute which makes this vacation even more special and fun since I get to spend my time with not only family and friends but also his family and friends and of course him! <3 I haven't done much shopping since we have been spending a lot of time catching up with our family. I am from the center of Portugal near Lisbon and he is from Chaves, which is farther up, closer to Spain. We came up to see his family this past Tuesday and we're leaving tomorrow, which gives us five days of exploring his town, which I have only been to twice. He took me shopping in the town center and bought me THE cutest bag! A dark blue material almost like a suede texture but softer and it has some decoration along the front giving it a heavy duty and industrial look and feel to it. I am in love with it!! He's the best! I also bought two pairs of leggings and a long sweater at Bershka, one of my favorite stores here. I will be doing a whole haul when I get back to the states of stuff that I bought and accumulated along the trip! Just wanted to update you guys on what's been going on. =) Happy Friday!!

I will be traveling to Portugal this week for some vacation time with my family. I am so excited to see my grandmothers and other family and friends! I am also excited to see what the latest trends are. However I am not that excited to check out any cosmetics while over there. Makeup doesn't seem to play a major part in the lives of women there. At least in comparison to the states. I also find drugstore makeup ridiculously expensive! I'm talking about 14 euros for a L'Oreal mascara which equals to about 20 US dollars. Their skincare products are not too bad. I am most excited to do some shopping at the new mall in my town which includes stores like Bershka, Stradivarius, and Pull and Bear!! I will be away from this Friday (the 15th) to Sunday (the 31st). I will try and take a bajillion pictures and do a haul post!

This is the street where I do most of my shopping.
Although now I have spent most of my time at the new mall in town!! See below...
