The last few days I have been staying in sunny Scotland with some relatives, and while out there we had a day trip to Glasgow town centre. It's strange because this was actually my first visit to Glasgow, even though I've been to Scotland many times in my life, and wow have I been missing out. As soon as I stepped out of the train station, amazing shops sprung up all around me. Needless to say, I was in heaven! The town is large, but not as busy as, for example, London, which makes it much easier to take your time and look around.
Above are some pictures of us having a break from shopping, sipping a Grande Hot Chocolate with cream from Starbucks, I felt so snug! Then later I had a delicious bowl of Leek, Potato and Stilton Soup with brown bread and a pot of tea. Such comfort food for the cold North!
Here is what I purchased on our lovely trip to Glasgow!
Doctor Martens 8 Tie Boot in Black
Ok, so definitely my most extravagant purchase of the trip. They are pricey, but I have been saving up for these boots for a long time now. I love the signature yellow stitching, and the way they look when they are worn in. From what I hear, that is when they get super comfy. It seems I am just going to have to wear them none stop from now on, not exactly a hardship for me!
I plan on having these boots for years to come, they are timeless, can be worn with any outfit, and are completely classic.
Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser for Normal/Combination Skin
This is actually a repurchase. I bought this moisturiser a few months ago and am just about to run out so thought that I should prepare! The Liz Earle moisturiser really sticks to its word: it intensely moisturises, smoths and protects. Before I added this to my skin care routine, I was getting quite down about the quality of my skin. However, with continuous use, the moisturiser slowly repaired any scarring or redness, leaving me with incredibly nourished soft skin and a glowing complexion. I highly recommend this product. Even more so because it is completely animal friendly.
H'suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment By Lush
Since my hair has grown, I am finding it harder and harder to keep it in good condition. I love my hair feeling silky and soft, and had heard that deep conditioning your hair helps to strengthen and protect it. So when I stumbled upon this treatment which claims to "improve the condition, lustre and compatibility of hair", I did some research and found some glowing reviews, which was all I needed to decide to try it! The good thing about Lush is all their products are handmade fresh, using little preservatives, and again, a major plus in my book, they are animal friendly! I'll let you know how the treatment goes.
I have been looking for a pair of fake flesh tunnel earrings for a while now. While I actually think real flesh tunnels do look really good on other people, I would never be brave enough to have them myself, so I guess this is the only alternative! And for this price how could I say no?!
Ring from Topshop
Again, another "so cheap how could I say no" buy! I have wanted one of these rings ever since my sister bought one recently. There is one ring which is larger for your index finger, and a smaller ring for the second finger in from your smallest. It can be seen in the picture above of me holding my hot chocolate!
Jack Wills Dormastown Classic Sweatpant in Navy
I have had my current Jack Wills Sweatpants since the age of 13. They have been worn so much at both home and University that the bottoms became straggly and ripped. So I decided that a new pair of Jack Wills was in order. Yes, these are expensive, but the material is very soft and of such high quality. More so, the fact that I have owned my old ones 8 years is proof in itself that they are long lasting and therefore worth the money.
Hope you enjoyed this haul! Has anyone else tried any of these out? Would love to hear your thoughts!
