Hello My Lovelies,
Happy Saturday everyone. I have the weekend off work so i have decided to relax, throw on my onesie and snuggle up with my doggy Bella haha. I do have one of my first exams of the year Monday so i will be doing quite a but of revision tomorrow just to make sure i'm prepared :D
I also have some exciting news, my online Boutique 'Sophia With Love' website launched thursday. So pretty please go take a peek and let me know what you think. It's a little different to other websites at the moment as we havent set it up with PayPal as yet, so if your interested in anything you simply select what you like and send an enquiry. I will pick up the enquiry and will get back to you asap :D
So, back into the Haul, I went to London Tuesday with some Uni girlies and we couldn't resist a little bit of shopping. We stopped by a load of different shops, Victoria Secret, Abercrombie, Selfridges, Mulberry, Topshop and so on :D we had a great day and each picked up some lovely goodies :)
When we were in Selfridges i popped by the Chanel counter, I'd literally had my eye on a few things for the longest time and finally took the plunge and treated myself to a few goodies. The assistant that helped me was so lovely, she literally swatched so many different lipsticks until we narrowed it down to 2 of my favorites :D She then tried them both on me and I couldn't decided which one to go for so i was like, yeahhh lets just go for both :L
Rouge Coco - Rose Comete #20
When you look at this in the packaging it looks completely different to when it's swatched on your hand and applied to your lips. It's a stunning baby pink shade with a hint of shimmer, it's very natural and could be applied heavily for a more dramatic look as it's a build-able shade.
Rouge Coco Shine - Romance #55
The Rouge Coco Shines when applied come out a lot sheerer than the Rouge Coco's, however, they are also very build-able and can be applied heavily for a dramatic look. I absolutely love my subtle pink shades and this is a little more out of my comfort zone but applied on the lips is absolutely stunning.
Vitalumiere Aqua - B40
I've literally had my eye on tis foundation for the longest time. I had no idea what shade i was so i couldn't purchase it over the internet and considering how much these babies are i wanted to make sure i got matched up to the perfect shade. I think this products speaks for itself, it's an iconic foundation with tones of amazing reviews.
Victorias Secret was sooo busy but i couldn't leave without picking up a few items. I was looking around the makeup sections and came across this Lip Shine range and the shades were absolutely beautiful. I then spotted this Minty Kiss one and was really intrigued, i love minty gloss and mint is a natural plumper which i loveeee. I swatched the tester and it smelt incredible.
I then noticed this top on a mannaquin and fell in love instantly. I'm absolutely loving anything pastel or glittery right now so this minty shade was right up my street. It feels incredibly soft and will be perfect to wear on the go or for even working out.
I did have my eye on a load of other items but when i asked the sales assistants to help me find my size, they would disappear and not come back haha I really wanted some Jogging Bottoms but they didn't have my size on display :( they seem to only stock really small sizes, unfortunately i'm not built like a Victorias Secret Model (if only i was) so i need a little more lee-way in the sizing haha ;) I do love all of their items and will be making so orders online, even though shipping & tax will be crazy. I message Victorias Secret and asked whether they would be shipping items from their UK stores now but they said they still only ship from the US :(
I then stopped by Next, i knew what i was getting straight away. My mum absolutely loves this particular range of perfume so i thought i'd surprise her with one. I hope to get her every single one in the collection as part of her Christmas presents this year :D
Last but certainly not least, we couldn't resist not stopping by Abercrombie & Fitch ;) I wanted to get my hands on some more of their 'Fierce' Cologne, it's what they spray the store with and i absolutely love it. I stocked up when i was in the US but i'm on my last bottle now :( unfortunately the queue was out the door and we didn't have much time as we were on a tight schedule as i had Cheer Training that night too so we had to get on a certain train to make it on time, we're training for competitions so i couldn't miss it.
Even though i didn't get the cologne, i didn't leave empty handed, ohh yes, i had a lovely photo with one of the models, we had a little chat and a giggle so that totally added to my amazing day ;) There needs to be guys like him where i live pretty please haha
Hope you enjoyed this London Haul, let me know if you've tried any of the items i got or if you have any recommendations :D
