London & Paris Haul!

Hi guys!
I'm back! As you probably can tell, today's post is going to be a haul of all of the things that I bought when I was on vacation. I am actually kind of surprised, I really thought that I was going to buy way more stuff than I did. Go Sarah! I hope you guys enjoy this pic heavy post! I'm going to put links to where you can buy this stuff online, because some of it isn't available in stores. Let me know in the comments if you've tried any of these products, and what you think of them! And don't forget to enter in my giveaway! :)

Being who I am, I did some research before I left for Europe about which products were best to buy. And man, am I glad that I did! I've only been using this for a few days, but I love it! It was a little bit gross the first time I used it after I washed my face how much makeup still came off. Yum...

If you have seen my London Giveaway post, you may recognize this product. I bought this during my one day in London, and I'm seriously in love. This is one of the best moisturizing lip products that I have ever used. And, it smells amazing!
Oh, Caudalie...I'm sure most of you have seen this brand at Sephora and you thought... Wow this French stuff is kinda expensive. Yup. But not in France! I was amazed to see this bottle sitting on the shelf of a pharmacie for only 9 Euros 90. I looked on Sephora when I got home, for the same size bottle it's $18. Wow. I guess doing some research before you go on vacation can pay off. This is another product that I've heard wonderful things about, and so far I really like it. It smells so good! I used this on the flight home, and it really did make me feel more refreshed.
Obviously, I can't tell you guys my thoughts on this because I haven't used it yet. But I'm kind of excited to see how it works.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 54 Boy.
I thought long and hard about what I wanted to purchase from Chanel, whether I wanted a lipstick, or a cream shadow. (Tough decisions here people!) I ended up choosing a gorgeous wearable lipstick, and I couldn't be happier! I absolutely love this color. It's one of those 'my lips but better' shades. I will definitely be getting my moneys worth out of this!
While I was at the Chanel counter, I was lucky enough to get a ton of awesome samples (some, not shown) and this so far, is my favorite! This mascara is absolutely awesome. I've just been wearing this everyday with nothing else on my eyes. It makes my lashes so long and full. I'm in love.
I haven't tired this yet, but I've heard great things about it!

These 3 rings I bought at a market in the Bastille area. I was so excited when I found these because one of the things that I had wanted to get were some rings. And for only 10 euros, I couldn't go wrong!

I bought both of these dresses on my last day in Paris at a little boutique right near where we were staying. They were 36 euros each and I think definitely worth it. They are in fact identical aside from the colors. I believe the brand is Suncoco.

I bought this shirt on my birthday at the Gallerie LaFayette. I was really surprised at how different the store was set up compared to big stores like that in America, I actually think that I preferred it.

This was the only clothing item that I purchased in London. I spotted it in a store window across the street and was determined to make it mine. The color is absolutely wonderful, and I think the little details are perfection. If you can't tell... I'm a little bit in love with this jacket! :)

Alright guys, that is all the stuff that I bought over there for myself! Don't forget to enter in my London giveaway. And keep your eyes open for my Paris giveaway once that one is finished (Some of the items in this post may or may not be part of that giveaway!).

Have a beautiful day!<3
