What i bought on my travels

October 9, 2013
I went slightly overboard when i went to Paris but I’m not there everyday so that was my excuse! A few of you wanted to see what i bought in Paris and Disneyland and to be honest i didn’t buy a lot in the city just mainly cheap skincare things and in Disneyland i was just buying things because i thought why not? It’s Disneyland! I obviously got a lot of items to remember my trip and a few really unique items! I’m not going to show everything otherwise this would be a very long post but i got simple things like thimbles, keyrings, pens and a thermal flask (it was part of a meal deal!). All the prices are estimates give or take a couple of euroes, i can’t remember some of them! Hope you enjoy this post!

Couldn’t resist stocking up on more Bioderma, I got two big ones for €15.50 and a lickle baby one for €2.49. Oh and all my skincare products are from CityPharma on Rue de Four which is sort of famous for been a ‘not-so-secret’ discount pharmacie.

I finnally got my hands on the Caudalie Beauty Elixie, It was €7.99. I am yet to use it but i literally cannot wait! I’ve been wanting to try this for ages! Review will no doubt be coming when i’ve used it for a bit!

Last time i went to Paris i got the NUXE Reve de Miel Lipbalm, well this time i got the stick version because i loved it that much! I’m also giving one away, the link is at the bottom! Oh and this was €5.95 for two (the pots are €6.95).

On to the Disneyland things, Me and Alex bought some matching keyrings as my old one had broken and these were really cute yet simple! I believe these were €5.95 and they were one of the cheaper items!

Just a general array of items, we both got straws and pens each! The straws were €3.99 each and the straws were €4.99! The pens were all really expensive and these were one of the cheaper ones!

These were one of my favourite items, I’d seen some similar in Gogo Phillips and i went to the store in Shoreditch but apparently it’s shut on Sundays so i managed to get some silver ones from Disneyland! I kinda prefer Silver over gold too because they’ll match most of my jewellery! They were €12.99 i believe!

In one of the Disney stores in Disney Village you can make your own Mr.Potato Head for €17 and basically you choose all the parts you want and they have some really unique items and as long as you can fit it all in the cardboard box you can pick however many pieces you want. We spent a long time trying to stuff everything in, It was pretty comical but now we’re left with a half buzz lightyear, half minnie mouse mr. potato head. 

This is probably one of my favourite items, i kept seeing it and picking it up and in the end i thought BUY IT. It was slightly pricey at €12.95 but so worth it to have it out every Christmas. Although it’s a tree decoration as it has a flat bottom i think i may use it as an ornament as I’d hate for it to smash because it’s pretty heavy and also it doubles as a snow-globe! 

Hope you enjoy this post and Let me know if you’ve been to Disneyland and what you bought there!
