Scotland.Baby!

Hello Guys!

As I said in my previous post, my and my mum spent last week in Scotland. We stayed in a lovely place called 'Tabet', our hotel was right on the loch and it was perfect. One one of the days, we caught the bus to the next town and on our last day, we went to Glasgow!
We enjoyed going around all the little quaint shops, which sold Scottish tartan and other little nick-knacks.

We picked up quite a lot of things whilst we ventured out, especially at Glasgow..Oops. Ahh well, we were on holiday! (that was our excuse anyway). :)


I picked up this lovely cream wooden latern from a small shop (which I can't actually remember the name of!!) which sold homemade soaps, shower gels and bath bombs ect. I saw this tea light holder and thought it was really cute and well..i'm a sucker for cute things.. :)
It was £8.00, with a candle already inside, which I thought was quite a bargain.


I had heard so many things about the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush, and when my mum picked the body wash up a few weeks ago, I knew I had to have it.
We went into boots whilst in Glasgow and I headed straight to the Soap & Glory section, I opted for the Body Butter instead on the body wash, as I just love love love Soap & Glory Butters. They feel really great on my skin and sink in really well. 

I used my boots points to pick up my FIRST Essie nail polish (Shock horror), I chose a lovely summery colour in 'Peach Daiquiri' which I am certain will be a firm favourite this summer. It is a peachy/pinky/coral colour. 

I was having a browse at the makeup sections in boots, when I came across the Natural Collection. I don't actually own anything from this brand, but they had an offer on where everything was under a fiver. Love a good offer :) Nothing really stood out to me, but I picked up a lipstick from the moisture shine collection named 'Pink Mallow' for £1.99, can't really grumble at that. It is quite a soft pink colour, glides onto the lips really easily and doesn't drag.
It leaves my lips feeling really soft and nourished.


In Superdrug I headed straight for the Rimmel section as I knew I wanted to pick up one of the  the much hyped about 'Apocalips'. As soon as I swatched the shade 'Stellar' I knew I had to have it. It is a bright pinky red colour and is just gorgeous!

I was after a moisturiser with SPF in it, and Olay had an offer on, I think all their moisturisers were about £3.70? Which I thought was quite a good deal. I picked up the one for normal/dry skin, as I do tend to get dry patches around my nose,

I always have a look at the MUA stand as I think they are great for the price you pay. I got this eye shadow trio for £2.50. It contains a puple/pink, a lilac/pink and a icy/pink colour. Perfect to create a smokey eye.
They are all quite shimmery shades and are really pigmented.


My Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is one of my holy grail items. I honestly couldn't be without it. So while we were in John Lewis, I picked up some more of the muslin cloths and also picked up Instant Boost Skin Tonic. I have used this every night since I got home and so far I am loving it. It leaves you skin feeling really moisturised and fresh.


Yankee Candles from Thorntons, because i'm a sucker for these candles and can never pick up just one!! 
They all smell amazing and I can't wait to burn these babies ;)


Obviously I headed to MAC whilst in Glasgow and headed straight to the lipstick section, because you can never have too many lipsticks. I picked up 'Pink Nouveau' and it was love at first sight. It is a lovely blue toned bright pink. 


I never really go into La Senza, but after the one near me shut down, I thought I would pop into the Glasgow store to see what they had. Picked up some lovely underwear but well..you don't need to see that ;) 

I had an amazing time, and loved spending quality time with my mum. 

Lotsa Love'
