Mini Birthday Haul

I've made it a little tradition to only work half the Friday near my birthday and then spend the rest of the day shopping in the beaut sunshine. Last year I went to Chelsea, this year I went to Westfield White City (London). 

Didn't get much, I just decided to write a list of things and shops I wanted to go to before I met my friends for dinner. I'm still hobbling around really so I didn't fancy visiting every shop. 

Of course I went to the Models Own bottle shop and spent £20 to get 6 polishes! Im getting a bit pickier now so I know what kind of colours I want and I'm not buying polishes just because I don't own it. 

I think I picked quite a good selection - quite spring/summery shades: 

1. Pastel Pink
2. Mermaid Tears - Splash Collection
3. Utopia
4. Juicy Jules
5. Blueberry Muffin - Scented
6. Strawberry Tart - Scented

The only other product I got was a foundation. Getting all excited about high end quality make up, getting matched ad the counter and a makeover, I wandered into The Village and House of Fraser where I knew there would be a lovely lady waiting to play skin-matching with me at the Giorgio Armani counter. 

I originally wanted to get a match with the Maestro foundation as that's what I had been mainly using lately and loving it! However, as we all know, your skin changes all the time and different things may suit you at different times. So the sales assistant opted to show me the Luminous Silk foundation and I tried it and liked it. 

I still like the Maestro but after using Luminos Silk for the past few days I like it too - it feels nice on the skin and works well over the Smashbox Photofinish Primer (which is similar to the Armani primer). For your reference, I am 6.5 in Luminous Silk but 5.5 in Maestro. 

So that was my little haul :) also got myself a half-priced frappe from Starbucks whilst taking a good half hour rest: 

And had a lovely dinner out at Fire & Stone with my friends:

Showing off my lovely Lychee Martini :P

Hope you guys had a good weekend!!
