My little London Hauls….

I’ve got some really cool things coming up for the blog which hopefully will be interesting for you guys – until then, here is one of those aimless, look at what I’ve been spending me pension on posts.

I spent the weekend in London and here are some of the things I bought home with me!

The Shu Uemura shop in Covent Garden had a small but significant 70% off sale!

The Gold Mode palette, for example was down from £45 to £11! Amazing!

At the Japan Centre I bought this book by Japanese skin guru, Chizu Saeki:

I am in LOVE with this book. I will be doing a full breakdown and review shortly.

(Keep reading, pic heavy!)….At the Shu shop, they also have new larger palettes (that take 32 shadows I think). All my Shu shadows are already in palettes but I feel like having a play and putting my best ones into this huge one!

I got two of the £10 grab bags in Jelly Pong Pong. This one with the Wake Up Make Up set and the Cherry Pie:

And this one has a small brush set and a lip gloss/balm set:

Also at the Japan Centre I went a bit mad with my Beauty Magazines –

Where are my freebies! You normally get amazing freebies with these mags! I also bought Voce.


I bought this from Camden for Baby Gomez (I am the cousin):

From ArtBox I got some random bits, like a little flower mirror, a pencil case and sewing kit:


Got a cheap Pucci Style necklace for £5 in Camden – just realised the ends are a bit tatty – should have checked properly!:

I also got 2 of these keyrings that look quite handmade from the market – 2 for £5

Have you seen these about? These balls are called Eco Soil – you soak them for 6 hours and they become quite large, erm, balls, that you can put into a vase and it lasts for 2 years. Much nicer than brown soil!

I have a sick notebook addiction so I picked up this cute Betty Boop one – for all my Cosmetic Candy Developments?

Just one holiday snap – Megan, star of YouTube at the Roller Disco (learning to skate too, poor thing). Me? I wimped out! I don’t remember roller skating being so hard, it must be like when my mother says she can’t remember when she forgot how to use the DVD player.

Did you have a good weekend?
