One of life's little luxury's - hotel brunch hehehe.
|Various viennoiseries, cheeses, meats & salmon|
Nom nom nom their viennoiserie were soo buttery and delicious!
I could stuff myself with Pain Au Chocolate everyday if they weren't killer for my waistline.
But on vacation I eat pastries/dessert everyday lol!
|Bacon, Blood Sausage, Sausage, Potatoes, Mushroom, Tomato & Fried Eggs|
Traditional English Breakfast!
Basically the best picture I've ever taken!
On our way to the Tube station we fell upon this amazing antique store and had to go in!
I picked up that gorgeous silver tray above and a few other small things.
Tube station located right by our hotel!
The British Museum
The British Museum is by far one of my absolute favorite museums in the world. It's been quite a few years since I've been back.. and we weren't able to make it on our last trip to London so I was pretty adamant about making a point to go this time around.
The British Museum houses the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts outside of Egypt.
The Hubs: She's hot.... but she should really consider a pedicure.
|Ham & Cheese Panini, Fish & Chips w/ smashed peas|
English Pub fare before heading home!
|Chanel, Hermes, Cartier|
Duty Free Goodies!
Lately I've been a SPF nazi.
I truly wish I had listened to some of my gf's (Wei! lol!) that have been telling me to wear SPF since my early 20's and I ignored them and I've started to notice some pigmentation/freckles around my nose lately. BOO.
Anyways I went in only intending to purchase the 42 Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector for face.. however they were having a gift with purchase if you spent a certain amount so I ending up grabbing the 50+ Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion for face & body too.
I have yet to try the 50+ for face & body but I did use the 42 Urban Environment everyday on my trip and I have to say I REALLY love it! The reasons why I dislike wearing SPF is that tends to leave a white cast, it's greasy & causes me to break out. Well I had none of those issues! My make-up looked normal, didn't run and I didn't break out.
This was the free gift with purchase! I was super excited about the Deluxe sample sizes because they were perfect to toss in my travel toiletries bag.
I LOVED the face mask!!! My skin felt SO moisturized and my face looked visibly "plumper" after using it. I always like to do a face mask when I get off of the plane because the air is so dry when you're flying.
And in continuing with my SPF obsession.
Smashbox CC cream!
I LOVE THIS STUFF!
OMGOSH. I don't think I can EVER go back to regular foundation again. I used this in conjunction with the Shiseido 42 Urban Environment SPF everyday on my trip. And I really loved how my skin looked!
The Smashbox CC cream is awesome.. it has SPF 30 which is pretty high for foundations I think. It's definitely more coverage then a tinted moisturizer but not AS heavy as a foundation. Also it contains skin reflecting particles so your skin looks really luminous and "glowy" when you wear it. Bonus is that it's supposedly Dark Spot correcting. And as you know that's one of my concerns right now since I've noticed some pigmentation. I haven't been using it long enough to see any results in that area. But I think every little bit counts! At any rate the SPF 30 in it should prevent some new ones from forming *hopefully*!
And last but not least my Snack haul!
Tyrrell's kettle chips are sooo good I love their unusal and unique flavors!
I also picked up some Caramel Sea Salt shortbread biscuits, Turkish Delights & Charbonnel Walker chocolates when we were at Harrod's.
When we visited Harry Potter I picked up Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Jelly Beans & Chocolate frog!
That wraps up my London trip :)
Hope you enjoyed "traveling" with me!!
