The 12 Days Of Blogmas - Day 6 - Christmas Shopping At Too Faced London

Last week I was doing some shopping in London and went down Carnaby Street. The decorations are all up making it look super festive.

For the makeup addict there are plenty of brands having their own stores including MAC, Benefit and Urban Decay. It was only on Saturday did I discover, Too Faced now has a store.

OMG, I have died and gone to Heaven, was my reaction as I stepped inside. The store is bloody brilliant and has products you can't get anywhere else including the Chocolate Gold Palette and the Peaches And Cream collection, which is only available in America. They also had the Clover palette too, which you can only get online.

The store is really fun. Girls and guys who have taken their boyfriend shopping can even drop him off in the boyfriend park area.

There are some great gift ideas if you are still looking for a gift for someone this Christmas. I got myself the Chocolate Gold palette. Now, In Selfridges I bought the White Chocolate Bar as I didn't know this store existed until I was told about it at the Too Faced counter there. This store and Selfridges are the only places apart from online, where you can buy the White Chocolate Bar.

The store is amazing and I will be going back very soon to get some more goodies, and that last bit of Christmas shopping.

The 12 Days Of Blogmas - Day 4 - Kiehl's Christmas Blogger Event

Here is day 4 of The 12 Days Of Blogmas themed posts. I love going to blogger events, especially at Christmas time and the other night I went to an event at Kiehl's in St Davids Center, Cardiff.

Kiehl's is still a brand new to me as I haven't used many of their products. Events like this are a great way to try out the brand and learn all about it.

As it was Christmas themed, the dress code was Christmas jumpers. A good festive event also wouldn't be complete without music - the Mariah Carey Christmas album.

Candy Cane drinks were available which just tasted fantastic. Along with mince pies and cookies.

I even got the chance to decorate my own Christmas cookie. I have to admit I've never decorated Christmas cookies before.

If you are looking for a Christmas gift for someone, look no further as Kiehl's have plenty of gift ideas.

I really enjoyed the event and seeing everyone looking all festive in their Christmas jumpers. I also got a goodie bag with loads of samples for me to try out. Thanks Kiehl's and Merry Christmas.
