So I didn't wait until Christmas...It's one of my bad habits, as soon as I get back to the UK I go shopping and in a big way. I suppose if you consider that I have spent the last 7 months working without a day off, hence without time to go shopping it is really OK for me to finally have a splurge. So this is what I bought for myself:
Real Techniques blusher brush to replace extremely old MAC brush, new 2013 diary from Paperchase with the last 2 weeks of this year in it too which is very helpful (I cannot get to grips with programming appointments into my phone), Liz Earle cleanse and polish with muslim cloth (I've always wanted to try this and given up on hoping someone will buy it for me), hydraluron gel (supposed to be amazing and will probably need it as I'm not used to the central heating and zero humidity in the UK), a box of Laduree macarons which I have heard so much about but in the end wasn't so impressed by them..I think I've been spoilt with the local pasticcerie in Italy!
I realise it might seem like a lot to some but think of it more as stocking up after months in a place where none of this is available!
Next up: Winter Wonderland!
