Spice Girls and Shopping!

Today was my shopping trip up London and what fun my friend & I had, including a celebrity sighting!

First stop was Harrods

Guess who else was visting?

Geri Halliwell of Spice Girl fame signing copies of her new book

I can never resist a tea towel when visiting and today was no exception

Then of course the Christmas dept. I remembered to take some photos for you as we were leaving (you know how it is I was too busy throwing things wildly into my shopping basket!)

Here's my goodies

My favourite is Hello Kitty dressed as Santa. The Eiffel Tower is already on display in my bedroom, I think this one will be up all year round

This Snow White gown caught my eye on display... who wouldn't feel like a princess in this?

On the way to the station this case caught my eye

I need a case for hand luggage when travelling to LA next month and thought this had a Chanel-esq look about it. I'm lucky enough to have a black & white Chanel bag which I'll use (who knows I might look stylish enough to be upgraded!!)

Next stop was Cath Kidston and unfortunately they wouldn't let me take any photos but here's what I came home with

We didn't make it to Alfie's Antique Market as our feet were starting to throb. We're saving that for another day for which my bank account is grateful for!

I hope you enjoyed sharing in my shopping trip

OMG, the Christmas stuff at Harrods looks so fabulous! Thanks for the pix, loved seeing everything.

I had a sort of Spice Girl encounter a couple of months ago myself. I was at Disneyland and noticed this tall, handsome, guy standing a couple of feet from me. He looked kind of familiar. He was snapping a lot of pictures and pretty much just looked like a tourist, but he was surrounded by Disney people, so that was the clue that he wasn't "just a tourist." I wondered who the heck he was. Later that night when I got home, I watched the news ... they showed David and Victoria Beckham walking around Disneyland with their kids.

"Oh," I thought, "that explains it. Somehow I managed to miss seeing Victoria, but there was David, 2 feet away from me and I was such a dope at the time, I couldn't figure out who he was. Sigh.
