Covent Garden & Fabulous Finds

Hi Everyone
Phew, such a busy weekend. We had friends come to stay and a day out was planned to the wonderful Covent Garden. I have been a few times and I always have a good day. I love hopping on a bus and watching London go by through the windows

First a walk round the indoor market where you can find all sorts of unusualness, what caught my eye were dressing gowns, when I asked the price  £199.00  yes you read that right  £199.00!!!  I was tempted to say "do you collaborate!"
Then I sat and drank tea (the others had beer) and listened to the marvellous violinist. It was so chilled I could have sat there all day
But the shops were calling, there are some beautiful shops in Covent garden. My friend spent a small fortune in L'occitane

The staff in L'occitane were really helpful, and I wondered if any of my readers buy it? And did you know you can buy refills? rather than buying the full priced product? My friend bought shampoo and conditioner this way after being advised, along with some face oil, so she was rewarded with a little make-up bag full of goodies.

I thought this travel bag was so cute! The gold birdie I bought for myself for the Christmas tree. I am most probably the first blogger to mention that word already! But I couldn't resist that birdie.

Next stop was Penhaligon's Ladies and men's scents were bought for personalised crackers.

  They came in beautiful decorated tins, there pricey though, but the little glass bottles are so cute.

 I treated myself to some Molton Brown..... I bought Templetree shower gel and body lotion.I have wanted this for a while and it smells delicious, and along with these I got a super travel bag.

One store I really must mention is Carat jewellers. If you ever want exquisite dress jewellery go Carat Jewellers most of the jewellery here took my breath away (so much so I didn't take any pic's

Once we had divulged all the shops in Covent Garden we had a browse n the surrounding shops. My favourite being Sandro

It was a sunny day but still quite chilly. So I thought I would try and look a little brighter and wore a white jumper and accessorised it with last years white handbag, so it didn't look so wintry but warm.

I picked up this useful magazine that tells you all you need to know if your thinking of visiting, what's going on and what's new. You can find it HERE  If your planning a visit to London I recommend that you visit Covent Garden, it's a great day out. However if you have already been, I would love to hear what your take on it is. I love to receive comments!
