I'm baaaaaaaaack and look what I bought!

Well ladies, I went, I sunbathed, I melted and I was very good in the make up buying department *ahem*  We won't talk about the shoes and scarves I bought, sweet baby Jesus I'm sorted for life now in that regards!  I had a lovely time and can't believe the two weeks went by so quickly.  Now it's back to business and we're gearing up to finish our first Blogoversary celebrations and pick some winners!

So do you wanna see what I bought?  Yeah, thought so...  I got my beloved Elie Saab perfume in the duty free on the way home yesterday and it came with a little body lotion and 2 samples to carry around in my already heavy bag.  A review of this is coming soon but be prepared that if I meet any of you over the coming weeks, I will be making you smell me, that's how much I love this perfume.

Next up was the only purchase made in the duty free on the way out, that's how restrained I was!  They're Real! from Benefit made the cut and I snapped it up.  Same goes for this, a review is coming soon with a bit of a twist.

The third and final purchase made me go "ooh" in the airport in Spain yesterday.  Now take a look and go "ooh" yourself...

It's Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre in the shade Epatant and it was love at first sight.  Review soon as usual.

Didn't I do well?  (Ignoring the shoes, scarves, bags and blazers I got too *ahem*)  I missed ye all and am looking forward to getting back into my routine, I have lots to blog about!
