Princess Twilight Sparkle and the Accidental Haul

Well, what an absolutely awesome day this turned out to be!

I had my La Mer facial with Nicola at House of Fraser, Glasgow booked for a few weeks and was so excited when I woke up this morning.

After being cleansed, massaged and pampered to within an inch of my life, Nicola explained to me what she'd recommend my routine to be. This was: the cleansing gel, the refining facial, the eye concentrate (which had been applied with the metal tool which felt delicious on my skin!), the intensive revitalising mask and the moisturising gel cream.

She said my skin was in good condition and it was about keeping it that way - prevention is totally better than cure! 

I bought the moisturising gel cream (which is already a firm favourite) and the treatment mask. She gave me a few samples of the gel and exfoliant and I also got the little green bag in the picture.

I had the hour's facial at a cost of £100 booking fee, which is then redeemable against any purchases. Thoroughly recommended if you're planning a purchase anyway :)

Just a note: these products might look ridiculously expensive, and you might be thinking that I'm a whole case of crazy, but the moisturiser I had last, lasted over 10 months - which is less than one fancy coffee a week costs.

After this, we took a leisurely walk back to the car via quite a few shops: GAP, River Island, Lush, Boots, Whittards (the dreamtime tea is delicious), John Lewis, Zara... and build a bear, where my daughter couldn't resist begging for a bear! How could I resist that face?

A few other purchases include: a simple, grey tee, a green vest top and a navy and cream striped vest top from GAP; a real techniques bold metals liner brush, a bottle of sugar crush body lotion and a righteous butter from boots; a bag (for me), and a swimsuit and dress for my daughter from River Island; and a few bits and pieces from Lush - the creamy candy bubble bar is the best!

The Soap & Glory Sugar Crush lotion is incredibly sweet, which is probably why I love it and the bold metals make-up brushes are up there with the best I've used. Plus, they're beautiful.

I had seen the bag the last time I was in Glasgow and thought it would be the perfect size to stash my new notebook in. I had planned on going to Paperchase today to see what other notebooks were there but when I spotted this one in the range on Thursday, I knew I had to have it!

A quick stop at Waitrose on the way home for some snacks for our movie night - Metcalfe's skinny popcorn in sweet cinnamon - and our day was done. After a bottle of Korres' Bergamot Pear body wash also fell into my basket...
