With the amount of effort I've been putting in to preparing my shopping list for my visit to the UK, anyone would think I was gearing up for the end of the world.
I have lists... and I'm considering a spreadsheet.
Anyway, both Scott and I plan on going on a massive shopping spree and treating ourselves to a whole bunch of new clothes. Shopping in Abu Dhabi isn't as inspiring as you might think so a cheeky, tax-free haul is most certainly on the cards.
Today, I thought I would share with you what's currently on my wish list from New Look - spoiler alert, I seem to be having a, 'cold shoulder' moment.
My skin has been having a really bad week. Scratch that. A really bad couple of weeks. Apparently you can't just eat like an absolute animal for a month and get away without the tiniest most astronomical smattering of pimples.
And before anyone says anything along the lines of, 'I don't see any spots!?' I've been troweling on the concealer so hard, Mr Titchmarsh would be proud.
Recently, Scott and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. We made it a whole year. Hooray. As a special treat, Scott booked us a surprise trip to the Banyan Tree Al Wadi Hotel Resort and Spa out in Ras Al Khaimah. I'd always fancied staying at a resort out in the desert and with the hotel grounds spanning 100 hectares and being nestled amidst the sprawling Al Wadi Nature Reserve, it really was the perfect escape from the city.
I first saw the, 'If I could only pick one' post on Molly's blog (MollyLouise) and after a few minutes of appreciation at the products she chose, I shuddered at the mere thought of having to chose only one, measly product from each beauty 'section' to live with for the rest of eternity.
You could say I have commitment issues.
After briefly considering whether or not it was fair on the entirety of my make up stash to start picking faves, I thought, to hell and decided to give it a go.
Note: I didn't take this lightly and probably gave it more consideration than I did when deciding which university to apply to. #For Reals
