Now obviously when in London you must spend money, it's an unwritten law. Never mind the fact that I'm up there pretty often!
I guess you could say I was pretty restrained.
We spent Saturday on Tottenham Court Road in all the furniture shops (snooze, this is the kind of things 'grown-ups' do). But luckily for me Tottenham Court Road seems to house the flagship store of Paperchase. Now Paperchase is one of my very favourite shops. I don't need stationary, however I cannot walk past one without going in and buying something I possibly don't need. I just can't help myself, everything has faces drawn on! I love things with faces. Sushi with faces, scribbles with faces, cakes with faces etc.
I mean seriously....look!
Anyway I got this....
Cute, huh? Everybody should love cupcake and cookie. I've been needing a bag like this for a while too!
I also popped into Boots too. Did you know Barry M does a special Boots only colour? Well I didn't, but I do now.
It's a gorgeous pinky purple.
Sorry the lighting is a bit dodgy. It's called Boots limited edition 047 if anyone is interested. I like it and it makes me hopeful for summer!
Saturday night was spent at a restaurant called Tsunami, in the West End. It does gorgeous Japanese food and amazing cocktails. It was mine and my boyfriends 2 year anniversary (collective 'awwww' please! Haha) and as we didn't get to see each other Valentine's day either it was a good excuse for a meal.
Here is a sneaky picture of my boyfriend!
Very lovely night indeed. We went for gelato afterwards in Gelupo in Soho - best gelato ever. Hazelnut and chocolate brownie tastes like bloody Ferrero Rocher - absolutely fabulous.
Sunday saw us taking a trip to Harrods - I needed some new heel bits for my Louboutin's. Accidentally I checked out the new S/S range and fell in love with these babies
WANT WANT WANT - but cannot have. Boo. I also pawed this matching bag, damn you Christian - why are you doing this too me?
What I did do though, was stumble across MAC. I've said before that when I'm with my boyfriend I always must impulse buy. I picked up a brush for my Year of The Brush (more blogging about that later) and I was surprised to see they still had some Peacocky bits left.
I was still pining after Woo Me, unfortunately that was sold out, but En-chantee was another colour I'd liked so I snatched it up as quickly as I could.
I'm glad I did, it really gives an impression of fuller lips and although the gloss doesn't last very long the actually colour stays around for a while. I've been wearing it daily since I got it.
Two items from MAC cost me £40!!!!!! The weekend spending we pretty restrained until MAC sucked me in. But all in all I had a lovely weekend.
This post is actually about last weekend, not the one just gone! But still did you all have lovely weekend?
