Recently I took a trip into London to have a little shop and walk around. It’d been a long time since I’d been to London on my own and I wanted to take advantage of having a good old browse in shops as I came across them.
I had a really good look in all the shops I wanted to and picked up everything from my list (and more!) I grabbed lunch in EAT and it gave me the chance to have a flick through my newly acquired copy of Blogosphere magazine.
A stopped into the Oxford Street Disney Store because I’d heard their Beauty and the Beast display was pretty special. You’ll have seen these (and the video I took) on my instagram if you follow, but here’s a few pics of the displays
That window in the centre photo had snow falling between the panes. So pretty!
I stopped into Forever 21 and almost bought a whole heap of tops I would never wear. The most tempting of all was this
A Gudetama hoodie! It was way too expensive and had something written on the back so I didn’t buy it, but still – Gudetama!
But enough of what I didn’t buy, here’s what I did buy!
I picked up the Pixi Glow Tonic to replace the one I’ve just finished. I had to buy this in Liberty since Pixi in Carnaby Street were all sold out. I also picked up the Pixi Glow Mist. I bought a new Better Than Sex Too Faced mascara. I’m giving it one more try since the last one I bought appears to have been a dud – always clumping and flaking from the start. Fingers crossed this one’s okay, because no one I’ve spoken to has this same issue.
From a store called & Other Stories I bought this gorgeous mermaid toned nail polish called Liquid Sky and two pairs of the prettiest earrings.
Again, from Liberty I picked up the C.O. Bigelow Cold and Flu Soak as a gift for Gary. We saw this a while back but didn’t buy it. Then when we went back to get it they’d sold out. Liberty is the only place in the UK that stocks this brand and we assumed we were out of luck. Then when I saw it on this trip I knew I had to buy it! I also picked up a Kikki K magnetic meal planner, and of course the Blogosphere magazine.
It was a really fun trip, finished off with a fun meal at the Rainforest Cafe with Gary after he’d finished work (we were having Disney withdrawals!).
All in all I spent slightly over what I’d budgeted, but it’s all in the fun, right?….. eek!
