LivTravels: Europe Haul!

Hi guys!  So, as I said…dun dun dun daaaa….Wanna see what I got in Paris and Germany!?  Let’s gooooo!!

So, for the first thing…it’s not that exciting…but I’m just going to include it anyways!  We went to Sephora on the very first day, and I got two things.  And then, on the last day we went to MAC and I got one thing.  I’m not going to picture them all because they are pretty boring products, and not everybody is as interested in makeup as I am!  I just got Bare Minerals Matte Foundation, NARS Smudge Proof Eye Primer, and MAC Naked Lunch Eyeshadow.  Just very basic things!

NOW…Onto the fun stuff!  [I’m not going in any order by the way!]

In Luneburg, Germany we went downtown shopping one day, and I ended up popping into a store called ‘Douglas’ and guess what I found?!  AHHHH Butter London nail polish!  LOL I was so excited!  Where I live, I have to drive like a half hour and there are only like 10 shades to choose from, so finding a whole line there was pretty exciting!  I got ‘Slapper’ and ‘Trout Pout’ which are both very typical colours that I love!  I think they are my two all time favourite polishes!  At least for Spring and Summer!  They were pretty expensive, but I know I can’t get them anywhere at home, so I was ok getting them!  They were like 16 euros each.

Slapper, Trout Pout

The next thing I got were a few things from H&M in Paris.  I actually got them in the kids section.  LOL.  I got two pairs of capris THAT ACTUALLY FIT ME.  I was so excited because you have no idea how difficult it is to find pants that fit!  I have arthritis, so my legs are pretty skinny and I have pretty long legs at the same time, so finding them was like a miracle!  I got a pair that were turquoise, and a pair that were lilac.  Once again, very typical Olivia colours!  Then, I got a romper!  I have wanted a romper for ever, and  I have just given up because I know that if I buy an adult romper, it will be massive on me, and I have never seen a child’s romper that I like.  But, hey, I got one!  On this trip I got lots of things that I have been wanting forever if you can’t already tell!  The romper fits perfectly, and it has a pretty ivory lace detail around the neck, and a green-blue floral print.  They were about 15 euros each!!

Then, a very touristy item!  I got a shirt that says PARIS in rhinestones.  LOL I really liked it though!  I feel like you can’t go anywhere without getting a shirt!  There’s tons of souvenir shops around town, and you can get these pretty much everywhere!  I honestly have no idea how much it was!  Maybe 15 euros?  Oh no!  I forgot to take a picture of this!  Haha, I’ll get one when I do my other post that I mention at the bottom of this post.  Sorry!

Yet another item that I’ve been wanting for a long time!  Bow rings!  I love bows, I don’t really go too overboard with them, but I LOVE bow rings.  The second day we went into a store called Etam, and I got a cute pearl ring from there for about 5 euros.  And then, on the last day I got like the best thing EVER.  I was so excited when I saw it!!  It’s another bow ring, but it’s a lot smaller, and more delicate which I can pull off because I’m pretty small.  I regret buying the first ring because it looks pretty ugly compared to the other one!  I don’t know where I bought this, but I do know what area pretty well, if you’re curious!  It was sort of near Le Bon Marche.  *googling* I’m pretty sure it was on Boulevard Haussmann right beside Guess by Marciano.  WOW.  Surprised I know that.  Anyways, I’d definitely recommend that store!  It had great clothes, and amazing jewelry.  I think it was 15 euros as well.


Another thing I got was actually a birthday present.  My birthday is in September!  We went  to a little store and quickly fell in love with their necklaces.  My Aunt ended up buying a necklace and matching earrings for herself, and noticed that I was pretty much drooling over the necklaces, so she ended up getting me one!  Thank you!  I also don’t know the name of the store, but it was on ile Saint Louis.  The brand of the jewelry is Coeur De Lion I believe.  It’s a gorgeous neutral necklace with browns and blues.  I wanted something that could go with what I wear everyday, so I got this one.  They had some other amazing coloured ones as well though.  *I actually just googled the brand, and it looks like they have tons of stores!  Here’s a link to see some of the amazing jewelry they have!

In Europe, I knew my mission was to buy lots of scarves!  I ended up getting seven scarves at a bunch of different places.  I’ll start with the ones I got in Paris!  There was a store called Diwali that I LOVE.  It’s a scarf store, and they have great quality scarves for very good prices.  Let’s count how many times I say ‘scarves’ in this paragraph.  I ended up getting three scarves there, and I love them all!  The first one is got (sorry I don’t know the names for each scarf!) is a very plain lilac scarf that has fringe at the bottom (16 euros).  The next one is a EVIL scarf.  It’s a plain deep teal colour with no fringe or anything (18 euros?).  The first time I wore it, it gave me green hands!  When we went back, the girl just told us to soak it in cold water several times, and we have yet to do that.  It’s very pretty though!  The last scarf from Diwali is so pretty!  It’s a very similar colour to the previous one I was talking about, but just a little lighter and brighter.  It has metallic thread through it, and sequins too!  Very pretty!  I believe this one was 15 euros.

The next four scarves were all bought in Germany.  The first one I bought at a little random shop on the side of the street, and thought it was adorable!  It’s not the best quality, but I had to get it!  It is coral with little cats on it!  How cute!?  I think it was only 10 euros.  Another scarf purchased from a random store is just a plain square scarf that’s sky blue that was only 3,50 euros.  Yes, another one from a random shop that is a mix of blues, purple, and fuchsia was only 4,95 euros.  And the last one I got is my favourite!  It’s from the store called Peek & Cloppenburg.  It was like my favourite store ever!  It was a department store with nice brands for great prices.  The scarf is a cream colour with plummy grey feathers on it.  It’s from the brand ‘Review’ and it was around 30 euros.  It was actually a gift from my Aunt as well!  She went in there and was buying her coat, and knew that I wanted that scarf so bad, and just plucked it off the hanger, and said “I’m getting this too”  haha.  LOL Look how much I’ve talked about scarves!!

I love this one! (From Peek & Cloppenburg)

The cat one.

Plain sky blue.

Pink, purple & blue

The next thing I got was from the same store Peek & Cloppenburg, and it’s a Bench. jacket.   My Mom got this for me, because once again, she was getting a similar jacket, and thought I could use mine for the Hamburg zoo that we went to the next day.  It’s a sea foam green colour, and it has a nice velcro collar that keeps my neck warm–although I may not need it with seven new scarves!!  It’s also from the kid’s section!  I believe it was like 40 euros.

And the last two things…I think!?  I love everything that I got, but this was like my big splurge.  I GOT TWO LONGCHAMP BAGS!!  AHHHH!  I love them!  I think they are the small long handled?  Or the medium?  They’re just the classic ones.  I got the colours chocolate, and black.  I love them!  We went absolutely crazy in there!  Haha in the matter of three days all three of us got over 15 things combined…a little crazy!  Anyways, here’s the pictures of them both.

(This one has nothing in it, so it looks a little weird!)

I think I am going to be doing another post of just me wearing everything that I got, because the pictures just don’t do it justice!  It’ll probably be up in a couple weeks after I wear all of this stuff!  [You’ll see the ‘evil scarf’ in that post!  I don’t really want to get my hands green right now!]  Talk to you soon!

LivTravels: Europe Day 4

Hello again.  So day four of my trip we went to the Luxembourg Gardens and the Pantheon.  The Pantheon was a pretty cool place, let me tell you!  It was where we discovered that the earth moves.  It said everything about time, and the pendulum was still going.  I can’t really tell you everything about it, because I just learned a couple things, but I do know that the pendulum just moves on it’s own, and it determines the time.  There were ways of telling the time before they discovered this method, but nobody knew about the earth moving with us on it.  Anyways…the Pantheon was really close to our hotel, and so were the Luxembourg Gardens, which were beautiful!  I’m not totally sure what the Luxembourg Gardens are, but it’s basically a big old building that is surrounded by a really beautiful park.  Between the two places that we went to was a little shopping area, so we went shopping!   There was a store called Diwali which I quickly became obsessed with.  It was a scarf store that sold great quality scarves for pretty reasonable prices.  They had I think 9 stores all around Paris, and we ended up going in 2.  If you are looking for any good scarves and are going to be in Paris, check Diwali out!  Anyways, I’m going to stop talking…here’s the pictures!

(Keep in mind that if I’m leaving anything out, I’ll be showing it in a video!  My Mom mostly got pictures, and I got TONS of video!!)

I’ll have a few more up tomorrow!  Talk to you then!  Goodnight.

LivTravels: Europe Day 3

Hi again!  So on day three we went to Galaries Lafayette, and the Opera House.  I only have a couple pictures to show from this day, because we spent most time in the department stores.  It was amazing!  At the top of the mall, there was a huge souvenir section, and they had great stuff.  Lots and lots of selection for high end shopping!  We actually didn’t end up buying anything in the mall, but we went to H&M, and I got three things in the KIDS section.  You guys seriously wouldn’t believe how tiny I am!!  I think I am going to post a loot video at the end of my little Europe series.  I really want to tell you guys about all of the stuff I got, so I may end up blogging about all of the souvenirs I got, and then actually have a video including all of the stuff for me?  Sound OK?  Anyways, onto the few pictures!

Talk to you soon!  Time is going well, and I should have at least one more Europe post up.  Bye!

LivTravels: Europe Day 2

Hello!  So, let’s see…Europe day 2.  We were in Paris this day, and it was one of my favourite days out of the 15.  This day it rained, but it was pretty good the rest of the time.  We went to one of the two islands on the seine river, and saw the Notre Dame.  We also went on a bus tour.  The bus tour was great, and I highly recommend it.  The one we went on was called “Open Bus Tour” I think, and we took the green route.  It was a double decker bus, and we got stunning pictures.  It included pretty much every big sight to see in Paris, and I’m going to show you the pictures!  As I said previously, these posts will take a while to get published because I was a little picture crazy, and I have other things like videos and school work to do to!  I will hopefully have another one up tomorrow though!  Also, expect a link to the video in a while.  I think I might decide to do all of the posts for my trip first, and then all of the videos, but I’m not too sure.  Anyways, for now, enjoy the pictures!  (They were all taken with my iPhone 4S by the way, and it’s amazing quality!!)


Guess? ;)

Love this! (:

Hey, look!

Side view of the Notre Dame


So cool! This bridge was right beside the Notre Dame.

More Notre Dame.

Another side of Notre's amazing!

All the little details.

Notre Dame!

It's huge! It looks so tiny on camera!

Not edited! Got some cool shots when the sun was peeking out behind it!

So, that’s it!  It’s actually a lot faster than I thought…so I might have another one up today!  Talk to you soon.

Liv’s Life: I’m Still Alive!!

Hello!  We made it back to Paris, and we have internet!  I’m still vlogging everyday, and taking lots of pics, so you’ll see them in a week or so.  Yesterday we went to the Eiffel Tower at 9 PM and it was amazing!  Very pretty how it sparkles!  I’ve been buying tons of stuff too, so I will try to include some stuff in one of my vlogs.  I have to go do some stuff now, but I will try to pop in tomorrow.  I will also be posting my Q & As soon, so be on the look out for that!  Hope your day is going great!  Bye.
