I’ve been meaning to put this post up for so long, the only thing that has stopped me is the amount of stuff I keep buying. So I decided to split it just up in a few parts, as otherwise it could become a huge haul and I wouldn’t want to bore you all ;-).
This is the stuff I got in the first week I was here, and mainly some boring things. I stopped at Boots first and picked up some X-Large Baby Cotton Pads for make up removal – they are amazing, way better than regular cotton pads. An item I’ve been lusting over is the Dr. Jart+ Waterfuse BB Cream. I don’t say it very often, but this is totally worth the rave and hands down the best Korean BB cream I’ve tried so far and I have had my fair share of ’em. I picked it up when it was 1/3 off all Dr. Jart+ products, so it was a great deal (around £12). I even picked up one for my mum while the deal was on – she’s gotten so curious after my ravings haha!
While I was still in Boots I swooshed by the make up section real quick and picked up 3 Barry M Nail Paints (they had a 3 for 2 deal) in Bright Red, Indigo and Red Black. I also got the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Purifying Clay Mask. I have tried it a couple of times, not sure what to think about it yet. I also caved in and got the First Aid Beauty Shaving Cream because it was 50% off. Really wanted to get the oatmeal mask but that one was sold out already.
In House of Fraser I just walked to the Laura Mercier counter and grabbed the Laura’s Secrets Vol. 4 set. It was 50% off – it would’ve been a crime if I’d pass that one up. I can say that I’ve enjoyed this set so much ever since I got this, and have been using at least one product everyday. I also got a small silver bangle that looks like a belt from H&M, which was a big impulse buy actually.
The first Sunday I got here I went to a work related fashion event. My mission there was to spot new brands and products to feature on the agency’s blog. My favorite of them all: Paperthinks, a company that sells stationary, bags, and cases of recycled leather. Great concept with great colors. I mean, it’s just a joy to only look at them! I got a 12 Month Diary* in the medium size I guess, and I love it. It’s just the perfect size, great quality and gorgeous vibrant blue. Am currently eyeing the iPad case and the travel wallet – swoon.
