Down With This Sort Of Thing!

That was very deep. Now for something completely different.

What did I buy in Europe this time?

+ I went mad at Boots and Sephora (highlights, which you must get if you have them near you: Boots' Meditteranean range which I've raved about for years; Sephora's primer and metallic eye slick colours that come in Touche Eclat-type wands).
+ My new favourite scents: Acqua di Parma's new Blu Meditteraneo perfumes Mandorla di Sicilia and Arancia di Capri.
+ A very Audrey-esque black mini shift with bow from Topshop.
+ Various belts and everyday jewelry at Urban Outfitters, H&M.
+ Four pairs of shoes: Gucci black heels with silver chain, I put them on, with a coat, and think Catherine Deneuve; fun Fendi heels, with bronze and pink sequins, to dance the summer away; Bottega Venetta b&w heels, too pretty to describe, wait for the photos; and an oh-so-cute pair of red, white and blue summer flats from adorable French label Mellow Yellow.
+ A Dolce & Gabbana b&w handbag that perfectly matches the Bottega Venetta heels.
+ A sweater (that I should have bought many more of) and shorts from Zara. PS if you are going to Italy and France, shop at Zara in Italy, much better than the French one.
+ Plus olive oil from Sicily, salt and salted caramels from Brittany, and dried mushrooms and Mariage Freres tea from La Grande Epicerie (the Earl Grey French Blue flavour is like something out of a dream).

Phew! Photos to come, promise!

I love mellow yellow too - they have the best shoes but they're always sold out of my size, so annoying!
I always buy that exact same MF tea too - out of all the teas...!
Welcome home!
