Shopping in London - Whole Foods, Lush, Hamleys and Superdrug

If you saw my post last week you will know we went to London recently and I mentioned that I had bought a few things while I was there. I wanted to do a separate post showing what I got as the other would have just been ridiculously long and most people would have lost interest if it had gone on any longer.

So first of all, I was so excited to find a Whole Foods in Piccadilly Circus! I have been wanting to go to one for so long but obviously there are none near us. They had so many healthy foods which I wanted to try but I just didn't know where to start. One of the things we got was some assorted truffles which were amazing. You only got 3 in the box but they were all made of natural ingredients and I can't even tell you how good they were. So much better knowing they were healthy too! I'm going to have to try and make my own because I don't know if I can wait until we next go to London to get more! We also got some Clippers Organic Sleep Easy Infusion Tea. I'm yet to try this but I think tonight I might have to give it a go. My sleeping pattern has actually been good good over the last week or so but it is so easy for me to slip back into the routine of not going to sleep until about 4 in the morning so hopefully these will prevent that.
Obviously while we were there we had to find a Lush. We went past one on Regent Street which had 3 floors I think. I ended up leaving with 5 bath bombs, I definitely wanted more but I think 5 will last me a few weeks! I got Blackberry, Granny Takes A Dip, Sex Bomb, Big Blue and Sakura. The Blackberry bath bomb is one of my favourites so I can't wait to use this! I also love the Sex Bomb one too, it makes the bath a lovely pink colour! The other 3 I haven't tried before so I can't wait to see what they're like. 
While we were on Oxford Street we went into the biggest Toy Shop, Hamleys. There was about 5 or 6 floors and I have never seen so many toys. We ended up getting a few things from there for Georges brothers, they had so many sweets! I also had a look round Superdrug while we were there, I desperately needed some new nail polishes so I picked Rimmel Glitter Bomb Disco Fever, Rimmel Salon Pro Celestial Metallics Grey and Maybelline Color Show Pink Boom. I have to say so far I am really not impressed with the Maybelline Color Show or the Glitter Bomb. I have both on now and the glitter just doesn't spread out. You have to put loads on to get any out but then its too thick so it won't dry! And the Maybelline just took ages. It needed a good few coats and it ended up been quite streaky and a little messy. I'm looking forward to trying the Salon Pro so hopefully that will be better. I forgot to take a picture but I also got a Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush in Pink Rose. I am so glad I got this! I love it, you don't need too much at all and it gives a lovely peachy colour. 
George bought me some lovely Boots while we were on Oxford Street from Next. I had pumps on and as I mentioned in my last london post, I couldn't walk basically. I found some comfy boots and I love them! They're different to anything I already have and I have been wearing them everyday! One of the last things I got was this book, The Girl On The Train. I had heard about this and as we were going on a train it seemed quite apt. It seems different to anything I have read before so I am planning on relaxing and starting this later on today!
We had such a good time and I really hope we can go back again soon! For now I'm looking forward to Manchester at the end of the month!
