You can’t go to London and not shop! Right? Well I certainly can’t. I knew I wanted to visit the usual places like Liberty, SpaceNK and Selfridges. I also wanted to pop into & Other Stories and Pixi – my lovely mum was with me, the weather was so sunny we had a fab time. She treated me to a few bits as I don’t get to see her often (we live 300 miles apart). So it was nice to catch up with her and do a little retail therapy. Its been a while since I spent so much in one go.
I thought I would break it up and show you in this post what I bought from & Other Stories
What a beautiful shop & Other Stories is. I took lots of photos and think I will do a post on it. What do you think? Would you be interested in seeing that. The shop is laid out so well and merchandised so you want everything. The clothes are fashionable but affordable and they look to be well made. So many accessories that are merchandised alongside the clothes and we all know that the beauty section has been getting nothing but rave reviews and I’m here to say nothing other than I loved it! So many great own named branded items as well as The Balm, This Works and Dr Bronners and a few more that I wasn’t familiar with.
I wanted to buy so many things but had to show a little restraint. The Fig Fiction Body Lotion smells divine. Fig has become my new favourite scent. It is so luxurious and fresh, I am in love with it. They had a really good selection of eyeshadows and being utterly predictable I picked up a neutral colour called Linen Beige – why change the habit of a lifetime?? The packaging for the eyeliners I just loved, its so simplistic and appealed to my packaging addiction / obsession. I bought another neutral colour and went for Khaki. I think this is more of a copper but again I made a perfect choice for me & think I will get alot of wear out of it.
I’m really happy with the products I bought an already planning a return visit. On my wish list is a blush in Satin Magenta the Fig Fiction Body Mist – I can only imagine how amazing this smells and I need to try their BB Cream.
Have you visit & Other Stories or tried any beauty products from them? I’d love to hear your recommendations.
