We got to see and do a lot of fun things during our London visit – but I’m SO happy to be home, and so grateful that our permanent home is in Canada.

I am majorly shopped out! Unpacking is no fun when you’re running out of space to put things…I have some serious decluttering to do. Here are the last items I picked up:
I adore Accessorize – it’s one of those stores you walk into – and before you know it – you’re at the checkout purchasing items you didn’t need – but have to have! Their items are a mix of classic and cutesy – my current favourite is the gold disc necklace – it’s an easy layered look (the last 2 items were pictured in previous posts).
I didn’t buy as many clothes as I expected on this visit. I’m not sure if this was because the current styles didn’t appeal to me or because it was too cold to try anything on (I’m used to shopping in malls, not going from store to store right off the streets – gosh I sound like a spoiled teenager!) I picked up these two tunics from New Look – they seem quite unique, and very useful for the holiday season. I plan on wearing the pink dress with a cardigan and tights – either charcoal grey or chocolate brown – am not yet sure what would go better.
This last picture is a mixture of London purchases and FREE make-up. The 2 lipsticks are Barry M lip paints (in Royal Raspberry and Coral). I’m in love with Barry M products, these lipsticks were under £5 but are so pigmented and moisturising. I also bought the Dior Ultra-Gloss in Twin Set Pink – I don’t love it as much as I thought I would, but it works well on top of lipsticks.
Now on to the free stuff! I won the Balmshell mini-gloss set over at MAKEUP JUNKIE’S blog – so many different shades to experiment with! The Covergirl blush and concealer were sent to me by P&G. I signed up to be on their product review panel (non-blog related) – and was so pleased to be sent these 2 items (they also sent a lot of their bath products). I’ve raved about my CG blush in Lush berry before – so I’m excited to try out the Plush Peach shade.
I still have some unpacking and a LOT of jet lag to get over…so that’s all for now.
