An HCo Dude in Scotland! | My Amazing Trip to the USA and My Haul of Goods!

Hey Dudes and Bettys! How is everyone?

I'm super busy this week because we've just gone back to school and I've got tonnes of homework! But nevertheless, I'm keeping up to date with all of the latest Hollister and A&F!

Firstly, I want to share that for Summer Vacation I headed over to Florida and New York! It was amazing and the weather was phenomenal! I will definitely be going again! Everything in Orlando and the other cities in Florida is perfect! Everything is so clean and good looking.

I made sure to pop into the A&F and Hollister stores, of course; and the atmosphere in the Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch stores is so different to here in Scotland. Here it is more relaxed and quiet, but in America it's so busy and loud. There was this one tee that I loved and just had to buy! So I waited in line for 45 minutes (it was a long line...) just to buy this one tee, for only US$20. I know it seems ridiculous, but you couldn't buy this tee in the UK at the time and in that price and so I just HAD to buy it! Haha!

So I went to the Volusia Mall at Daytona Beach - I went to NASCAR as well! - and went into the A&F and Hollister stores there. It was really quiet so it was good to have a look around. So in A&F, I could not find a lot of things that fitted me! The US sizes must be smaller than the UK sizes? as in the UK I fit into A&F. I thought that the Hollister sizes were the same as A&F but they can't be, as I bought loads in Hollister and it all fitted me! The Break Line cologne smells amazing! It is honestly the nicest cologne that I've smelt! I bought it for US$44 (£28, €35) and I use it everyday! I also bought the Breakers Beach and the Manhattan Beach body spray, which was on offer at 4 for US$20 (about £3.16 each!). I've put some photos at the bottom of this post of some items I bought.

I loved Florida and New York, but I didn't have enough time to pop into the EPIC stores though. :(

Secondly, I'm sure that you guys know that there is a LOT of counterfeit A&F and Hollister apparel going around... Well this is what I'm going to talk about in my third post. I want to know your opinion on counterfeit goods, have you ever come across any? I'll tell you about it all next Tuesday!

Until then, stay FIERCE!
