The Titanic Adventure: part 1

Ok, so I'm back Poland. I'm still a little tired and have lots of things to do. This post will be written in a couple of sessions.
I know some of you have been in England numerous times or maybe even you live there. But for me, this was the first serious external trip and I was very excited! Please understand my emotions :)

Me and my friend (let's call her [F.] for the blog's needs) had a flight at 8:45 pm and arrived at London Stansted before 10 pm GMT I believe. That was my first flight and I was kind of scared at first, but then we focused on more pleasing things, like playing cards or looking for cities' lights. That was really amazing view and I regret my camera couldn't catch it... London was incredibly beautiful from a distance.

Would you like to play some Pokemon?
There was a whole night at the airport waiting for us, but we weren't upset. We checked where our Terravision bus was to departed from and then visited WHSmith in order to find some Titanic stuff. Of course we did, I bought a book and a newspaper:

I didn't expect seeing either of them, really. I mean, I knew newspapers would contain information about the ship, but the REPRINT of a genuine 1912's Daily Express' article? This was a perfect thing for me.
I think the book about Bruce Ismay is a good thing since nearly all people interested in the Titanic hate him and call him a coward. I think the source of his actions were more complicated and the best way is to understand them. Hope that book will help!
F. bought A Night to Remember, too, a beautiful anniversary edition. I didn't, since I have one already.

The night wasn't the best, it was very cold and not too comfortable, but the morning came in the end, so we decided to buy some drinks. F. chose coffee, I prefered tea.

Pardon my face :D
This was the first time we agreed England was cheaper than we expected. Really, the cheapest coffee on the Polish airport was for 11 or 12PLN. Here you could buy coffee for 2GBP, which meant it was about 10PLN.

Ok, so the next thing was to reach London. We bought our tickets ealier so we had to just jump into a bus departing at 7:15 am and look out for the signs of the city...

... and the city itself.

Here we go! Victoria Coach Station:

But our bus waited somewhere else, on that side of the street I stood to take the photo above.

At 9:15 am we set off to Southampton, the city where Titanic started Her first and last cruise.

Next part coming soon.

Yeah, you may think I do nothing but shopping. But it isn't true - I eat, too :D

Let's check what I managed to buy. Because of the next-weekend trip to England my funds are limited so my shopping is smaller than usually when I shop with my mom.


ZIAJA, eye makeup remover. Eh... it sucks. Really. Beside the nice smell and the fact it doesn't irritate your eyes (and my eyes are very sensitive so it's not a common thing), it's just bad. It smudges your makeup instead of washing it off. I spent really long time on removing my mascara and barely anything vanished. My eyelids were black, a flake didn't seize much. I had to use my mum's makeup remover 'cause I thought I should have used half a bottle of this one to remove the mascara. Why did I buy it? I forgot to buy a makeup remover in a drugstore. I came back home, had to go to a local shop and as they had only this one I didn't have any choice. 2/5

UNDER TWENTY, ANTI!ACNE moisturising and matting cream. I'm faithful to this (and A!A Intense) series, it really works. I don't have many problems with my skin, I mean I don't often get spots nor I ever had acne, but the sebum emit is horrible. Or rather, was. My skin has been in a very good condition since I started using the series. And I had big problems before, nothing could stop my face from glittering...
Sometimes I'd like to change Under Twenty to something else, but I always end up with Anti!Acne in my shopping basket. 5/5

ZIAJA, purifaying mask. I've read lots of good reviews about it and decided to buy it myself. It indeed makes your skin soft, smooth and clean, and mattes it a little. Your face looks fresh and healthy. I'm surely buying it again! 5/5


RIMMEL, Stay Matte pressed powder. Another thing I stick to for good and bad. It does a beautiful matte effect and lasts very long. Usually I don't have to correct it for six-seven hours, sometimes longer. 5/5

SENSIQUE, Trendy Colour eye shadows. I haven't use it on my eyes yet but here you have the swatch:

As you can see, the third colour is a nice pinkish skin tone, barely visible. I really like it for it completes the first two eye shadows. I needed (well, I'LL need actually) a nice blue x brown combination. I think of getting a more greyish blue eyeshadow from My Secret, but this one I have will do anyway. It's too soon to say anything more about it or rate it, so I leave it without any mark. I presume you'll see the effects at the beginning of May :)


ISANA, Body Roll-on. It was on sale (cost only 3,79PLN) so it was nearly obvious I'd buy it ;) I doubt if it really can fight cellulitis, but I think it may be a great addition to the anty-celli cosmetics I use. The only problem with this is it stinks. Yeah. I can't stand the smell during the application, I don't know how to call this odour, but I hate it. Luckily after the massage it vanishes and you can smell a menthol and feel a delicate coolness. 

BIELENDA, Orange Skin, anti-cellulite & stretch marks Intensive Serum. It's my second packing. Very good one, really. With systematic massages and peelings it really works and reduce cellulitis and stretch marks. It doesn't do wonders but it's pretty good for its price. 4/5


ISANA, oil care shampoo for breakable and glossless hair. Didn't use it yet.

ISANA, conditioner for weak and damaged hair. Too bad it contains silicone, but it was too hard to find a non-drying (aka non-alcohol) hair mist. The last one I had got way too much alcohol. As they say: something for something. At worst I'll have to wash my hair before oiling :D
Also it has nice appleish smell.

And the last, non-cosmetic item: tiger blouse from C&A. I wanted it a few weeks ago already but didn't have enough money. Now I took the 20% discount. 
It's awesome!
Got it in M size instead of S, but I like it even better 'cause it's perfectly loose. I've been very fond of such tops recently.

Last but not least!
