England. France. Italy. Australia. Asia. I've never been outside the US, but I've always been charmed with all they had to offer. As a child I was enamored with Oliver Twist, Charles Dickens, Roald Dahl, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory etc. In my teen years, I loved watching the latest fashions on CNN's Style w/Elsa Klensch. I loved 80's British/International bands such as Duran Duran, Culture Club, Wham, Bananarama, Men at Work and Kajagoogoo. In my adult years, I fell in love with the tv show Downton Abbey (hate to see it go ~ no spoilers please ~ the last season hasn't started in the USA LOL) and British actors such as Daniel Craig and Idris Elba. My first year of blogging, I talked so much about OTHER countries PR people thought I lived in those countries! LOL Well NOW, I love SHOPPING internationally online! I think it is so cool how it's becoming more accessible to purchase goods from other countries. Of course it's even more awesome if you can actually go there (which I plan to do), but this makes the wait a little more palatable. PLUS, you find the coolest things that you can't always find in your own country and it introduces you to new brands! Do you like buying and trying things from other countries? When you get something from somewhere else, doesn't it feel extra special?
