Haul: Selfridges, Brandy Melville, Forever 21, Muji and Pixi


I decided the other day that I fancied going into London, so on Wednesday I went. I had a few hours on my own before meeting up with my friend, I've never gone into London completely on my own so it was nice to go to wherever I wanted, go to all the shops I wanted and spend as long in them as I wanted! I prefer shopping on my own too! First I went to Kings Road, when I was in LA I found a store called Brandy Melville and when I googled it I found out they had a store in Chelsea. I loved it when I was in LA but the London store wasn't quite as good! The staff were..okay, they didn't really acknowledge me at all. I tried on quite a few items as I really love their clothes, the *unique* thing about Brandy Melville is that their sizing is "one size fits all" or at least "most." I tried on a skirt and a dress and they were so so tight, I couldn't actually get the skirt on. Now, I'm a UK size 6, bearing in mind the average size for UK women is a 14 they really don't cater for that many people! It is also quite expensive for quite simple tops and jumpers, they don't really do the prices properly either as I found a jumper that was $40 and they were selling it for £38...hmm. I tried on this thick beige cardigan/jacket. It's thicker than a cardigan but not quite a coat, it looks a lot better on than it does in the photo, it was £55 which is quite a lot but I knew I would get a lot of wear out of it and it is super comfortable! Next I went to Carnaby Street which I really loved, I've never been there before but it's really cute and has lots of different shops there so there is something for everyone. 

I found a Pixi store, this isn't a brand I've really looked into that much but I found the Glow Tonic, I had heard that this was quite hard to get hold of and I quickly googled it to see what other people had thought of it. Out of the couple of reviews I read, it seemed to get the thumbs up so I gave it a purchase, my skin has been horrendous lately so I'm really excited to give it a go! I then popped into Muji, I've been meaning to purchase some acrylic storage for my makeup for ages, I bought the Narrow Two Drawer which was £8.50 which I thought was very reasonable! Then, a cheeky purchase, I had been looking for a new foundation because quite frankly, 30 is not quite enough for me.. ;) I remembered Anna (from Vivianna Does Makeup) and Ysis (from LeBeautyGirl) talking about how much they loved this foundation so I went into Selfridges and before I knew it I had bought it, it was such an impulse purchase but I'm so looking forward to testing it out! Finally I went into Forever 21, I bought a pair of dark Grey Jeans (seven pounds!!!) as I had been looking at buying a pair for a while. I also bought a black textured cardigan!
