Just a small Sephora haul from Prague and Copenhagen! In Prague, if you bought two Sephora branded items, you got the second one half price. And in Copenhagen, you got a free goodie bag if you spent over £60 ish in store.
So far I am loving the Sephora foundation, although the BA sold me the wrong colour in Prague, so I also have another one which is around 4 shades too dark which I think I'll probably end up selling.
I also picked up some Sephora branded tweezers which are not pictured here.
I have read and heard sooo many amazing things about these Formula X Nail Colors and yes, they are very, very pretty!! I bought five (oppss, at £12 each!!), but tried to go for quite unusual or different colours that I hadn't seen before. The effects ones are beautiful. (Full review coming soon with swatches).
Such pretty colours here from Rimmel! And at around £1 each, I wish I had of bought more from Prague. The makeup here is quite a bit cheaper than in the UK (brand depending) and these were an absolute bargain. I think they are quite new(ish) colours too, so not old stock. Oh, I do love shopping for cosmetics in other countries!
I think Dermacol is a Czech Republic brand as I have never seen or heard of it before. I currently use a Jessica Quick Dry Top Coat, but for around £2, decided this Dermacol Rapid Dry would be a good investment if it worked!
I could not resist these pretty colours! And again, very cheap from the Dermacol brand in Prague. I have tried both of them so far and for the cheap prices (on par with Collection 2000 if it is still called that?!), I am quite happy I picked them up.
After walking soooo many miles each day in Prague, I needed something to help my poor aching legs and feet. Manufaktura have their own shops in Prague (a bit like a cross between the body shop and Lush?). I also got a peeling scrubby soap with citrus and grapefruit in it which is lush, but wouldn't photograph very well as I've been using it! This Manufaktura Massage Gel contains lots of nice ingredients to help aching muscles and it smells very relaxing - sort of herbally and a little bit of menthol.
In Copenhagen, Søstrene Grene (All Over the World) is one of my favourite shops to explore (alongside Tiger which apparently we now have in Nottingham?!). Søstrene Grene sell amazing and really cheap home wear goods, kitchen accessories, stationery, candles, napkins and various other bits and bobs! The box and wooden bowl were both things I picked up from here, and were amazingly cheap at around £3-4 each. You can visit their Instagram Account here which is really cool too. Their shop is certainly worth a visit if you're ever in Denmark.
I also picked up a plastic lipstick holder, some of my beloved Nespresso capsules for my machine, alongside a few other random bits that I did not feel were blog worthy!
Having never visited Prague before, I would definitely consider going back there; I absolutely loved it! Such a fantastic place with great transport links, amazing food (veal cheek, venison saddle!!!), cheap beer and friendly locals. Copenhagen is somewhere I visit every year to see my friend which I also love!
Is there anywhere else in Europe you recommend visiting? I have been to quite a few places & off to Berlin in December. I certainly appreciate living such a short plane ride away from all of these wonderful cities.
