...or not! Hi ladies, I’ve had a very busy week, staying away overnight at a roadside Travelodge yesterday, before going to Brighton and back today. Anyway, I had a spare half an hour in Brighton (one of my favourite cities) to pick up a bit of shopping and I managed to stock up on a lot of products.

If you’ve never been to Brighton, you will be in for a shopping treat. I think it’s the best place for shopping in the country outside London, catering for all tastes, including high street, high end and designer, independent and quirky/hippy shops. In particular, their beauty shops are fantastic. I used to live there when I was a student and I remember a friend coming to stay with me and us spending 3 whole days covering all the shops! My best friend still lives there, and we always hit the shops when I’m staying with her.
I went to L’Occitane and finally got some Almond Shower Oil which I’ve been meaning to get for ages. I then popped into Mac to get some concealer and bumped into a former colleague of mine who works there as a MUA – I’ve not seen her for over a decade, so we caught up whilst I also decided to buy Satin Taupe. Then I went to Bare Escentuals to get some more Mineral Veil. In Oasis I got a couple of pairs of earrings and Butter London polish in Marrow. Finally, I went to Superdrug to stock up on bits and bobs. Some Garnier BB Cream, an Accesorize bronzer, and GOSH cream blush, as well as other stuff. Phew, that was a lot of shopping in half an hour!
Believe it or not, I’ve not spend much money on beauty products recently, and other than nail polish, I don’t think I’ve bought any makeup all summer!
