London Calling

I'm off to the capital today, in search of those streets paved with gold. How pretty. I'll try to blog about it tonight, although London always tires me out and gives me achy feet!

I also wanted to tell you that yesterday I successfully took back the oh-so-disappointing Revlon DoubleTwist Mascara. If you intend to try something similar on a product you've bought and aren't satisfied with, prepare to feel very embarrassed and cheeky.

Adopting my most horrified and incredulous expression, I approached the cashier in the small branch of Boots where I live and started my monologue. She did not look impressed. It wasn't until I took out the mascara in question  pulling out the wand to show her the mass of guck on the brush and reiterating that it created one big eyelash on each eye  that she softened and did a typical mum-esque, 'Oh that is poor'.

The lady then told me that I could swap it for another of the same mascara, which I declined, still full of disgust at said product. Eventually I was offered an exchange for whatever I wanted of similar value. One eyeliner and an eyeshadow later; thank you and goodnight.

I'm not sure you could get away with this in a larger Boots, in fact they would probably look at you like you were mentally ill. If you happen to be in a small town, however, you could always try your luck, if you've got the nerve. Don't ask, don't get, as they say.

Leave a comment and let me know whether you think my actions were commendable or despicable!

  1. Eeep - I don't think I would have the guts. I'm terrible at returning things without feeling guilty, even if it is totally justified.

    Hope you enjoyed the mean streets of London and got some nice goodies!


I love reading your comments!
