The HUGE UK HAUL part 1- Beauty

If anyone didn’t know, I’ve been to England for Christmas and only came back last Saturday. I really love England and to have been able to go back there after so many, too many months made this year’s Christmas even more special. That, and the fact that we stayed in Yorkshire, my favourite part of England (after London). Me and my family got a holiday home in Harrogate and I literally shopped ’til  I dropped had a wander round the shops half the time we were there. During my numerous musings around the well-known shopping city, I managed to get my mitts on some AWESOME deals because I was there when all the BIG sales started.
OH THE JOY!
Today I’m just going to briefly show you what I bought in the beauty department and some other cosmetic products I was given as Christmas presents, then tomorrow I’ll show you all the other things I got that are not beauty-related. Next week I’ll get down to the nitty-gritty details of each purchase/gift.

Se non l’avevate capito, ho passato le vacanze di Natale in Inghilterra e sono tornata solo sabato. Io amo profondamente l’Inghilterra e il poter tornarci dopo così tanti mesi, troppi, ha reso il Natale 2013 ancora più speciale. Beh, quello e il fatto che lo abbiamo passato nello Yorkshire, che è la mia zona preferita dell’Inghilterra (dopo Londra). Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo affittato una casa vacanza a Harrogate e ho passato gran parte del tempo facendo shopping estremo mentre ero lì ho gironzolato per i negozi. Durante i miei innumerevoli vagabondaggi nella più famosa città dello shopping del Nord Inghilterra, sono riuscita a strappare degli OTTIMI affari, dato che mi sono trovata proprio nel periodo durante il quale iniziavano i SUPER saldi.
CHE GIOIA!
Oggi vi mostrerò brevemente cosa ho comprato a livello cosmetico e alcuni regali ricevuti per Natale sempre dello stesso genere e domani pubblicherò la seconda parte, con tutte le altre cose. La prossima settimana vedremo in dettaglio alcuni di questi.
