Our expedition started out at Starbucks for some yuletide lattes...
We found many cute things for her at The Gap
and then we traipsed into the big toy store...
Toys R Us and found a couple of board books and an educational toy.
We also checked out some boots, shoes and lingerie at The Bay...
our very own Canadian store which has been sold to an American conglomerate!
I found some new lip gloss from Chanel...
Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss
A Limited Edition Christmas Colour.
Rouge Allure Laque
I sat on a tall chair which I had to jump up onto
(I am height challenged so lovely DIL asked if I needed a boost!)
I managed on my own however it was a very ungracious looking move
as I was
laden down with parcels and bundled up in my Burberry quilted coat.
Perched on the chair I was there for all to see as the cosmetician tried several shades
( I think several passers by were very amused!)
after testing, swapping and swiping
we decided on two new colours...
Dynastie is for daytime
the Triomphal is bolder and richer
perfect for nighttime.
The super glossy one is a bit of a change for me
but it catches the light and will look good in the evening.
Lily was the name of the gal at the counter...
she added some samples of Chanel No.19
which is a grassy lighter green scent.
Quite a departure from Mother's signature scent Chanel No. 5.
We were home in time for me to wrap the presents.
This year I have vowed to wrap as I buy...
don't really know why I just feel like it.
Last week I bought Michael Buble's Christmas CD and he does have me in the spirit already!
It's the eve of the weekend here and I hope that your weekend is a dreamy one...
If you are shopping Black Friday Sales
be careful of those bargain hunters
I read in the paper that they can be dangerous.
I'll be posting my Christmas fruitcake soon so stay tuned!
