H&M, My Holiday Fling

There are many stores that I have come to love that are exclusively available overseas, but H&M was my first. I can only shop at H&M when I travel abroad be it in Switzerland, Singapore or China. I remember when I first found H&M in the city of Lugano during my stay in Switzerland, and we would go into H&M almost everyday for the entire two months. After we were let loose in a shopping district in Harbin, we wandered around for a while and inadvertently found H&M! It was Christmas Day, and their sale hadn't been on for long so there were lots of nice pieces to be found. :)


I bought a mint green knit, a cable knit beanie and a matching snood in a neutral sand colour, and two bracelets.
The snood was something I was extremely excited about because I hadn't seen them being sold anywhere in Australia, and the beanie was a bargain at around $5 AUD.
I couldn't leave H&M without some iconic statement jewellery and settled for two bracelets in pastel peach and mint green with some edgy studs and beads. They cost around $3 AUD each and I thought they'd make good presents, or if they really grew on me, I could just keep them for myself. :)
I'm keeping them. I like them too much lol.

There were some gorgeous dresses but we didn't have much time and I try to avoid changing rooms as much as possible. My sister bought a black blazer for something like $25 AUD, and it really suits her, but I passed on that blazer because I just bought the black Simba Blazer from Cotton On during their $30 sale. 

H&M is definitely on my list of places to go to when I return to Singapore in May this year, as are Forever 21 and Topshop. Ours is a relationship that  only gets rekindled once a year or so, but it's definitely worth the wait. :)

  2. Lovely haul! I was recently in Hong Kong and was super excited for H&M but unfortunately it was actually quite expensive despite their being a sale! :(

    1. That's surprising! I find H&M sales to be amazing for bargains on shoes, and bags and accessories especially! The discounts on clothes are good, but nothing spectacular. :/ xx

  3. I'm hopefully going to Europe at the end of this year with a couple of friends and I hope to go shopping. H&M is definitely on my list, as well as Primark and Topshop :D xx
