Girl about Town, part 2: Bourjois Boutique

*****Warning — Picture Heavy*****

Following the LFW show, I decided to pop in the beautiful boutique from Bourjois. It’s their first in the UK and the venue of choice was ever so chic. Only Beach Blanket Babylon!! Too cool.

Suffice to say, it was very colourful, candyshop pretty and fabulously girly. There is a golden poodle swathed in pink ribbons waiting to welcome you at the top of the stairs. Need I say more?  I could have spent the entire day there. There were make overs, manicures, styling sessions, body art, the works….Bourjois really laid it out! Channel 4 are also filming LFW bits and pieces from there with Jameela Jamil for T4.  They also had some good deals on their products with up to 65% off in some cases. I wasn’t bowled over that the sales assistant pushed a sale on me as soon as I entered, but I was far too dazzled by all the make up and products to be too bothered.

The amount of products on display was truly astounding and everything was laid out for you to have a good rummage and play. I never knew that Bourjois did body washes. They do, but only in France. That is such a shame as I was told by my friend that the vanilla one smelt scrumptious. I couldn’t smell, bad cold!!

The nail polishes were nice, but I didn’t buy any as I have a lot of similar shades already and I’m really trying hard this year not to make any double purchases. Same story with the eyeshadows. I was just happy to look around and play really.

Unfortunately I was too late for a goody bag 😦 but I took loads of pictures!

Girl about town, part one

So yesterday, I immersed myself (only a little) in the craze of London Fashion Week. It’s been a few years since I did the show circuit and I’d forgotten how crazy it is. Right now, it’s 2.30pm on Saturday afternoon and I’m still in bed with a legendary back ache.

I was helping out a friend who has just launched her own nail business(Omoge London – full feature coming soon) to make sure all the models hands were ready for their close up’s in the Francesca Marotta show at Goldsmith’s Hall. Lady like nude on long oval nails was the shade du jour!

Anyway, I took a few photo’s, so enjoy.

ps: I would have put descriptions under each photo, but for some reason my settings are acting up. *cries*
