The day had finally arrived to meet my wonderful friend, fellow Spoonie and blogger, Tania, from When Tania Talks. Pop on over to her blog and check out her YouTube channel, you won't be disappointed.
We'd been talking about meeting up for a while and it finally happened on Thursday. We decided to go shopping (obviously) in Milton Keynes and I was super excited. Tania and I talk most days and I consider her a really good friend so it was good to actually see her.
Let me tell you how my day started. I woke up before my alarm, still full of cold but eager to get ready and head on over to MK. As I was getting ready, I realised I had forgotten to call Shopmobility in The Centre (that's what the shopping centre is called, creative, I know), so found the number online and gave them a ring. Unfortunately all the electric scooters and wheelchairs had been reserved and they only had self-propel chairs to hire. I have my own self-propel chair which I can't propel for long as it causes quite a lot of pain. Luckily, my boyfriend is an absolute star and agreed to come along and push me so I didn't have to cancel my day.
I picked Tania up from the train station, we hugged and headed over to the shops. Conversation flowed and she was really easy to talk to - which I wasn't worried about as I'm a chatterbox anyway, quite surprised Tania could get a word in, to be honest. We went straight over to John Lewis, visited the Laura Mercier counter, had a look at Benefit and then on to Paperchase...and that's when my purse had to open. I picked up some cute postcards and stickers of skulls from the Mystic Rose collection. We went to Boots and bumped into the lady from the YSL counter who I love because she always compliments me. Then we went to House of Fraser and didn't stop until we arrived at the Nars counter. They had an offer on to buy any item and any one of their favourites (Nars blush or Audacious lippy) for £10 off, so I was all over that. I picked up a blusher in Amour and a velvet lip liner. Tania wanted Chelsea Girls lip gloss and Madly blusher which were both out of stock. Hopefully she'll find them at another counter. Finally, Mac called us and I added a cream blusher and the new Miley Cyrus Viva Glam to my bag of goodies.
It was a very good shopping day and even better because it was spent with Tania, who I absolutely love and can't wait to see again.
