Boots Sale Haul


I try not get to buy from sales, unless I really need the thing. Boots do Soap and Glory promotions all year round, so my bathroom cupboard is always well stocked. I do however like that Soap and Glory do limited edition Christmas products, so buy them half price after Christmas. I've also wanted to try the brand GlamGlow, which have a few sets in the sale. 

These are the things I picked up at the Boots sale.

Products :
Soap and Glory : The Lime Life £5
Soap and Glory : Wish Upon A Star £4
GlamGlow : Thirstymud Set £24
Krispy Kreme nail varnish £5

Duty Free Haul


I feel really mixed about Duty Free sometimes with drink and perfume, shops on the high street have a better deal. Duty Free isn't the same as it used to be, you have to compare prices online. Jo Malone don't do offers, or not that I have heard of. I love Jo Malone, so I always try buy something at Duty Free at the airport. 

As I headed to Paris for the day, I flew from Edinburgh Airport and managed to do abit shopping at Duty Free. Edinburgh Airport does Shop and click, which is a bonus to save taking everything to Paris. The shop and collect helped a lot especially, as I was traveling hand luggage only and being limited to the amount of liquid.

Products :

Jo Malone Lime Basil & Manderin Exfoliating Shower Gel 
Mac Volcanic Ash Exfoliator 
Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation : NC30
Mac Upward Lash Mascara : Black 
Kinder Surprise Airbus Collection

A Day In Paris

New York has became a place I've become comfortable to travel solo to, but after 6 trips I wanted to see somewhere different. After spotting a cheap flight to Paris, I decided to head to Paris for the day with my Mum.

We got an early flight from Edinburgh Airport, heading to Charles De Gaulle Airport. The second I arrived in Paris Airport the signs were all in French, some had in English below. I started to panic, not known what to look for. One of my friends suggested to get the train into the City. Once I spotted a picture of a train, I followed the sign. We went to the ticket machine and clicked English, but the English translation wasn't full English. I ended up clicking what I thought was a return and hoped for the best. Then my Mum questioned me, how I manage the trains in New York. I said well New York trains are easy. 

We got the train to Champs Elysees and walked up looking at the shops. I always wanted to see a French Sephora, to see how different they are to the American Sephora. Sephora was one of the first shops I spotted that I wanted to go in, so I headed in and the security asked to see in my bag. Known I was only in Paris for the day, I rushed round the shop picking up things I liked. A few staff stopped me and started speaking in French. I assume they were asking if I was finding everything ok, like they say in the American Sephora. I said sorry ? Then she spoke again in French. I said sorry I don't speak French and smiled at them. As I have an American Sephora Beauty Insider card, I really wanted the French Sephora card to say I'd been. I read online the France Sephora have a different card, as it's a different currency and anyone can have the card. I pointed to the picture of the card at the till and the woman goes card ? I said can I have the Sephora card ? She replied French ? I said English ? So I showed her the American Sephora card and she looked confused and said the amount I had to pay in Euros. Sadly I never go my France Sephora card, to show I've been. Every shop after that, I had to open my bag I took for the plane and my Sephora bag to security and some shops even wanted to body search you with their scanner.  

We then headed to the Arc De Triomphe and then to the Effel Tower.  

It was fun seeing Paris in a day

5 Reasons To Go To New York In January

My favourite thing to do in January, is to head to New York City. I have made a huge decision not to go this year, because am hoping to save and go somewhere different for my birthday. (and I've found a cheap flight to Paris, next next). I've decided to share with you my 5 reasons why to go to New York, in January.

Cheaper to travel January 

I find January is the cheapest month to visit New York. I always book as a package holiday and it's almost half the price, what I've seen the rest of the year. I went to New York in October and shared a room with my Cousin. I paid the exact same price sharing a room in October, to having my own hotel room in January.

 Christmas Decorations 

Going to New York in January is like doing Christmas back to front. I love spending my first night in New York, seeing the Christmas decorations. I tend to go the week after new year and usually that weekend I've watched the Rockerfeller Christmas tree come down.

Sales 

My favourite thing in New York, is shopping and America go big on their sales. The first time I visited New York, was February 2013. I spent $450 in Victoria's Secret. I have visited New York the last few January's and get just as much stuff, in the Victoria's Secret sale and only spend around $130.

Snow

Central Park always looks so pretty, in winter photos. It's a nice experience to walk in Central Park in the snow, but my hands were so cold to take loads of photos. 

Frozen Fountain at Bryant Park 

I heard about the frozen fountain, in Bryant Park on the news. It was so cold last January, so I had a feeling it was going to be frozen. I took a walk down to Bryant Park and it was amazing, to see the fountain frozen in person.
