& Other Stories Haul

photo 2-1 copyI still have so much to tell you about my summer vacation and what you shouldn’t miss if you plan your euro-trip but I seriously couldn’t wait to rave and tell you all about my new find (probably not so new to so many people).

Paris has been our sixth and last stop and you certainly know what Paris is mostly famous for: The shopping, lots of it. On one of the golden days, as we were walking under the sunlight and as we passed by the historical Place Vendome I was stunned by the beauty of fashion that revolved in one circle, we finally reached rue Saint-Honoré and there it was “& other stories” which is an amazing shopping store, it easily entered my list of top places to shop at. Lucky for me they also have a store in London, I’m definitely going to be a regular.

This is what I have bought:

-Angora-blend sweater
Metal Choker Necklace (I forgot to take a picture of it)
-Panel leggings
-Punk Bouquet body wash
-Punk Bouquet body scrub: I have already tried this product and I have fallen harshly in love with it. Sometimes scrubs could be a bit hard on my skin, not this one, incredibly soft( the softest scrub I have ever used) yet gets rid of any dry patches, leaving my skin polished with a silken texture and a luscious scent.
-Punk Bouquet body Soufflé: I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said I want to marry this product. It has every quality that I look for in a body lotion: Scent lasts for the entire day and the next day!, sinks into my skin as soon as I apply it which does not make me feel like a sticky creature that needs to be dried before touching anything & just smells absolutely heavenly.
-Equatorial Dreams body scrub
-Linsay Salmon nailpolish: Highly pigmented, long lasting and dries up so fast which is something that I REALLY appreciate.
-Say Pink nailpolish
*(There are things that you could see in the photo but I did not mention them because they were picked up by my sister and not me)

The Three Bs

Untitled-3..In more depth and details the reason why we went to Notting Hill in the first place was the french restaurant “Beach Blanket Babylon.” If you personally know me or an old follower of my blog then you’ll know how much I LOVE  European -more specifically- french furniture and BBB gives the feeling of a luxurious Château.

edited2Unfortunately the timing of the restaurants here is pretty frustrating, lunch ends at three and dinner starts at six and we were there 3:30 therefore we did not make it to lunch, so we just sat down for drinks instead. Because the place was so beautiful I wanted to try the food and also it’s pretty far from our apartment, we decided we’d shop until dinner to not miss the chance of having delicious food. And I’m so glad we did, I found so many AMAZING stores that had edgy clothes, beautiful furniture and cute pet stores.

newGot my Pooh a couple of things. I finally got her a collar, she’s almost 1 and she doesn’t have one *terrible mommy alert*

002And of course when there is Diptyque, there’s a candle purchase. Their scents are so unique and divine. I got the limited edition Rose Duet that was recently launched which combines two layers of Roses and Baies, the scent takes you to a garden of delights..

After the very long walk we took, we were finally back at BBB for a lovely dinner by the fire and the food was deliciously worth it

Notting Hill

I’m in London so I guess you know what that means, it means blogging non stop! There is just so much here to talk about..

photo copy 4What I love about London is that there’s always something new, there’s always a new street, new shop or a little cafe added on the corner. Yesterday I’ve been to Notting Hill for the first time which is crazy! How did I not know about matchesfashion and Brissi. The street is filled with irregular stores that you just don’t see on every corner and that’s kinda nice, for a change you won’t see H&M after every two steps you take. An addition to irregularity I loved that they were taking extreme care of their shop windows everything is displayed beautifully with so much color!
