2 girls hitting London: Beauty places to visit!

4 Dec

How do I start to describe an amazing weekend in London with one of my best friends?

So much to say! So little space!

I divided my story into three chapters.

Today I have for you chapter 1: London, the beauty places we visited!

Hitting the Eurostar with my girl Kjell Bracke!

Stop n 1: M.A.C store, Soho mac-logo

–> This is such a beautiful, attractive and chique shop! I recognized a lot of the products, but what really caught my eye was the extended range of colours! Never seen this in Belgium! We got the lovely help of Caroline, senior make-upartist for the UK, who explained us the upcoming make-uptrends! Such a lovely girl…I hope to see her again soon!

First stop: MAC-store at Soho. Lots of pretty, girly things!

Stop 2: Wahnails wah_logo

–> We have so been looking forward to this appointment!!! I follow Wahnails already for some time on Instagram, and they made me love nail art even more. I expected a big and elaborate nailbar, but this Wahnails was just a little corner in a rock’n roll hairsalon. Pretty cool actually! By the way, the Wahnails-manicurists deserve a golden medal in concentration. They had a whole camera crew breathing down their neck, and still these lovely girls created masterpieces on our nails. Respect!

kryolan_logoStop 3: Kryolan

–> I’ve never been a big user of Kryolan-products. They had a big theatrical connotation for me, which isn’t really my area of expertise. But as a make-up artist it’s so important to keep your eyes and mind open, so my curiosity won, and I was eager to visit this big, colourful, new shop of Kryolan in London!

Next stop: The renewed Kryolan-shop! Huge, colourful, and so so exciting!

margaret-dabbsStop 4: Margaret Dabbs

–> Every woman should end a shopping day with a pedi! Your painful feet deserve some soft, experienced hands which take care of you in style. Margaret Dabbs has several stores in London, even at Liberty, and offers a range of beauty and relaxation treatments. We decided to leave Liberty behind and chose a quiter place: The Margaret Dabbs at Cavendish Street.
