London Haul!!

Hey lovelies,

As you all know, last Saturday I visited London to meet up with the lovely Natalie. We had a lovely time and we both spend a little. Today's post is me sharing how I spent my moneys. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin.


Here lies my shopping haul, I think the easiest way to do this is go around the bags in the same way we went around London. So that means I'm starting with..... PRIMARK!!!


There is a rule, you can't leave Primark without buying a pair of pjs... So thats what I did (excuse the blurry photo). The pjs have tea cups on them...need I say more? Next on our shopping agenda was a shop off Oxford Street...


John Bell & Croyden is a pharmacy on Wigmore Street. Guess what we both bought... BIODERMA!! Natalie bought the last large bottle so I bought a little bottle. I'm excited to see if this little bottle is worth the hype it has. Have you tried Bioderma?

Next up, we were off to Carnaby Street and off to find the MAC Pro store. It was a little tricky to find but we found it eventually. Here is what I got...


I picked up two new pans for my eyeshadow palette, Woodwinked and Sable and also a lipstick. The lipstick I picked up in the Pro store were Show Orchid and also Violetta (not pictured) for Natalie's giveaway prize... its on my list for July. The other lipstick in this picture is Up The Amp. I had to work hard to get this lipstick, the pro store didn't have it, Selfridges didn't have it... We ended up having to trot over to Covent Garden MAC. I asked them if they had it, the lady serving me said yes and I told her I loved her... she was shocked!!

I think I have actually forgotten the order we went round and I have three more bags to show you, oh well. To Selfridges next...home to the greatest beauty hall full of things that I can't afford (so much better than the Birmingham Selfridges)


That is correct, another MAC purchase in Selfridges. I took this eyeshadow to the counter along with MAC Up the Amp, which they didn't have in stock. I do have to say taking the testers to the counter to buy them instead of asking someone to check its in stock was a little weird. #

But anyway, the eyeshadow I bought was Sumptuous Olive. This colour is one I wouldn't have gone for before but I was suggested it by Laura. I now lust after Club as I have seen a gorgeous look on a blog I want to try out with the two shades.


From Boots I treated myself to three Revlon products (3 for 2..yay), two lip butters and the Nearly Naked Foundation. The Lip Butters I picked up are in the shades Sorbet and Sugar Plum (which ironically is one of my nicknames). I'm excited to try all three products out.

Finally we have Lush. We visited the one in Covent Garden. I picked up two items and had a little mishap too. First my purchases...


I treated myself to a Think Pink Bath Bomb. I'm rather new to bath bombs so I don't know what to expect. I also treated myself to Grease Lightning, a spot treatment which has been said by some to work as well as the Origins Super Spot Remover, it'll be interesting to see if this is the case.

Now the mishap, when paying for my lush products, my MAC bag broke and all my goodies went on the floor and when I tried to bend down and pick them up I nearly lost my balance. The lovely shop assistant gave me a bag to replace the ripped bag, I thanked her and went out the shop red faced... well we are all human right?


What do you think of my haul? I'm quite proud of it. Have you entered the giveaway that me and Natalie are having yet? Click here to enter.
Till Next Time,
Clare xxx
