Nottingham, My Love
Getting to Nottingham itself was easy. We took the train, and we knew the way from the train station to the shopping area. It wasn't far. But once in the shopping area, we traipsed about 2 miles looking for this one shop called SpaceNK. During this trek I did get a HUGE blister on the back of my foot :( So I had to buy some new, more comfy shoes: D
Foot disaster over! We eventually found SpaceNK, and oh my, the walk was worth it! It was such a nice experience to be in the shop. We spent about 30 - 40 minutes in there, looking at and trying all of these new products. My sister had read about them online, but I hadn't even heard of some of them! From this shop I EVENTUALLY bought the NARS blusher I have been wanting for ages, and I got to try out some of the Chantecaille lipsticks I have heard such great reviews about. It was good to be able to go in and try out the products that I will (hopefully!) be buying in the (hopefully) foreseeable future, as sometimes, it can be difficult to match up online.
Next up we went into Kiehl's - a shop that I had actually heard about ;) My sister bought me a lovely Mango lip balm, and if I am right in saying, it was their first lip balm they made. The smell of it is just delicious enough to eat! But, I wouldn't recommend that as I don't think it is edible! I was also given a free sample of their body moisturiser.
We also went into L'occitane en Provence. Here I bought my parents a bar of apricot soap. It smells divine! They gave me some free samples, too :)
So they are my buys! What do you all think, and how are your summer holidays going? x
