London purchases part four: Tea.

When in the land of teaophiles, there's no way around buying some tea. Okay, there probably is, but I got some tea anyway! There's a much wider variety of tea in the UK than there is here, so I got a few that I cannot find here.

London purchases part three: Victoria's Secret.

I couldn't not go there, right? It was a bit tricky to find New Bond Street. The map in Oxford Street said  it was the next street on the left, but it was not. Anyhow, after a bit of wandering around I managed to find New Bond street and the Victoria's Secret store. The store is beautiful, but quite busy. Even though they're famous for their lingerie, I went there to get a couple of fragrance mists.
Mission accomplished!

London purchases part two: Biscuits.

What to bring home from England for a family that never drinks tea? Biscuits! So I went to Marks and Spencer to get some shortbread - which is more of a Scottish thing though - and left with a few more biscuits than planned.

The packaging got jammed during the journey home, but here they are anyway:

London purchases part one: Boots.

A little while ago, I was in London. I'd saved up some cash to spend in my Adventure fund jar and naturally I visited a few shops. You'll be shown the things I purchased in this and the next few posts. Of course I went into Boots and picked up a few goodies. I got some affordable products that you cannot or not easily get your hands on here in Belgium.

The bedside table upgrade.

The 'decor' on my bedside table has gone through some changes in the past few months, but there was definitely more room for improvement. So I made a few more small adjustments and now I'm happy with it.
