A quick update from Canada - haul in progress!

Just a quick post to let you know that I'm still in Canada and regular posting is not happening the way I thought it might!  I have a lot less free time than I expected, and also my laptop sometimes refuses to connect to the hotel's network due to some sort of security setting that I can't figure out.

Anyway, one thing I have of course found the time for is shopping, so here's my haul so far.

Not a bad effort right?  Most of my drugstore hauling took place at crazy o'clock yesterday morning.  I'm staying in the business district so the shops are mostly open from about 7am to 6.30pm so I set my alarm really early and raided the drugstores in peace and quiet when they first opened.  I also got taken to a Winners which is quite a lot like a TK MAXX and that's where I found discounted Orly, Essie and other bits.  

The candles are from Bath and Body Works - I'm tempted to go back there for more!  I also managed to pick up a Revlon lip butter we don't have in the UK (red velvet) and I found the infamous Revlon Girly!  

I may or may not have snaffled dupes of some of these things for a little giveaway when I get back :) 

Canadian experts - any other stores I should visit?  I'm staying in Toronto on Front Street and have already found myself Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexel and the Eaton Center.

Suggestions for any other North American goodies I should look out for?

Keep up to date with all things flutter and sparkle in any of the following ways -
