Many people, have many different opinions and perceptions of what Heaven might be. Some would immediately think of heaven in biblical terms. Some may think of a feast at their favourite restaurant. Some might think of a stroll round Topshop on Oxford Street all by yourself. And some might dream of walking round a huge venue with countless stalls, selling not very accessible make up brands at discounted prices, surrounded by an abundance of makeup lovers.
I was actually extremely restrained considering how much I wanted to buy – Blue Peter badge worthy, right? – but I think I went for quality over quantity.
First up, Make Up Forever HD foundation. *Happy sigh* I have wanted to try this foundation for a very long time, however, being a UK resident, it’s not so easily accessible over here. I’ve used it on and off for the last two weeks and so far, so very very lovely. Radiant but long lasting, it just ‘perfects’ skin even on a bad skin day. Review to follow shortly.
I did also purchase a small eyebrow brush but I had a complete Blogger fail and forgot to photograph it, and take down the name of the brand as the brush isn’t branded. Good one Elle, good one.
As for IMATS, that was it. As I mentioned, there were an infinite amount of items that I wanted to buy but the angel on my shoulder was reminding me about the house I am trying to buy, and the gremlin in my stomach was reminding me that I needed some lunch. Off to Covent Garden it was.
We had planned to go somewhere a bit ‘different’, try something new, however the torrential rain put paid to that, so a quick dash to the nearest restaurant it was. You can’t go wrong with Pizza Express anyway, especially having coeliac disease and they have a wide range of gluten free items. Exhibit 1, the most incredible GF padana pizza – goats cheese, mozzarella, caramelised onions with added tuna. DAYUM… that shit was good 😉
Then it was time for a quick snog. The frozen yogurt, you dirty lot, what are you like?!
Followed by a trip to complete ‘Girly girl heaven’ The Benefit pub, Gabbi’s Head, for cocktails and makeup drooling. And Benefit They’re real eyeliner freebie’ing. Winning…
