At the very beginning of June I attended my first ever blogger meet up in Birmingham which was a fantastic experience that put to bed a lot of nerves and worries that I had in regards to meeting a bunch of brand new faces. Whilst I had a great day eating more than I care to admit at a Chinese buffet as well as a brilliant tour of LUSH we also had a good hour browsing the Selfridge’s beauty haul which, if you haven’t been already is pretty incredible since it had a re-vamp last year.
Whilst I was out and about with the girls of course a little damage was done however I had been looking forward to the event for such a long time and had ensured that I had put a few pennies aside so I could buy a few things whilst I was there. I had initially only gone with two things firmly set in my mind that I knew I wanted to purchase on the day with those being the MAC 217 and the Big Sea Salt Shampoo from LUSH.
Whilst I was in LUSH I also decided to buy the Tea Tree Water which I had heard so much about, I knew that it was highly recommended for my skin type so thought it would be worth a try. I have since mentioned it in my post about tackling blemish prone skin as I’m finding it to be working so well for me at the moment. Across the road from LUSH my favourite store Waterstones harbours an array of books of which if I’d had the time I would have stayed in there for hours. Whilst I was in there I picked up another Rifle Paper & Co Journal because I quite simply think they are beautiful, they also seem quite hard to come by I have found after trying to find them online so that is where I go to pick them up.
The main damage was done in Selfridge’s whereby I spent far too much at the Kiehl’s counter; I’m hoping that in time to come my skin will thank me for this. The items I chose were both items that I have read numerous reviews on and researched over time and overall they sounded pretty darn good! The Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado was an eye cream that I had decided on a good month or two back to invest in next however I just happened to invest in it sooner than I had originally anticipated. The same also applies to the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate which is a serum for use at night time which appealed to me far more than the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair.
I also picked up a Starbucks card however I have yet to get around to registering it.
Have you tried any of the above products? If so I would be keen to hear your thoughts on them and if indeed you have found better ones.
