In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been missing lately! I’m currently in the United States, recovering from my wedding and a week of leading around sight-seeing Germans. Thankfully, I have a guest post for you all so there won’t been two whole weeks of complete silence. I was a bit too optimistic about posting while here! So, without further ado, a word from a lovely guest poster about the things she misses from America!
Hello! I am Bailie from The Hemborg Wife and I am so excited to be joining you here today!
After being in an international relationship for 7 years I have my set items that I always pick up when we are in the US and I thought I would share them with you today! These are things that are easy to find in California but impossible to find in small town Sweden or so expensive I just pretend they do not exist!
Any and all St. Ives scrubs will do for me! I have been using this product since I was in high school and every Sunday and Wednesday I am an exfoliating maniac. I am so excited that when we move to the UK I will be able to buy it at my local drugstore and it will not be taking up suitcase space any more!
This is the best brand of beef jerky ever ever ever and when we go to California we usually eat about 3 of the big bags and bring two home with us! I know so much salt but o how heavenly it is!
This is another product I have been using since high school and in California I can get three THREE for the price of one in Sweden so I always stock up!
So this one may seem super weird because Sweden obviously has toothpaste but none I have tried have the feeling on this Aquafresh one! I love it so much and obsess over how great I think it is whenever I get some and then am so sad when it is all out!
I am really that the Sundsvall library has an English section but it does take them a fair while to get new books in so I always get a few, or as many as I can shove into my suitcase without going over in weight into my suitcase!
Lastly I bring you shoes!!! Just this summer I saw TOMS being sold in Sweden but I have been buying them in California and bringing them home with me for years as they are my absolute favorite! I will let you in on a secret I have a not worn pair in my closet right now just waiting for the current pair I am using to bite the dust!
What do you think am I being crazy or would you also lug these things along with you?
