Hi there, I was given a Liberty voucher for my b'day and have no clue what to buy. It's a lot of money to me so I want to buy something useful rather than decadent. I use Liz Earle and Elemis which they don't sell and have just been given a bottle of perfume. Any ideas? Thanks in advance
I absolutely LOVE Liberty. In fact I bought an Alex Monroe necklace there only yesterday. Seconding the homeware and Stationary - all lovely stuff. Diptyque if you like candles? Aromatherapy Associates have the whole range there. Loads of gorgeous Easter chocolates at the moment. Some stunning scarves and bags. Although you'd have to put quite a bit towards them It's the only place apart from Harvey Nicks that stocks the whole Espa range if you're into that. If you sew there's a wonderful Haberdashery department.
I vote for Votary face oil. I got given a bottle recently and it's absolutely lovely stuff. I use it at night and my skin feels really soft and smooth. It's quickly absorbed so not at all greasy. Think it's about £60.
All I really need is a new pair of trainers (and judging by the website they don't seem to sell shoes anymore), so all of the luxury items they sell are a bit OTT for me. The suggestion to wait for the sale is a really good one pistachio as I don't have a huge amount of money to put towards something bigger. It's kind of the most money I will be able to spend on myself for a while so I want to spend it wisely. I will definitely go and have a browse on Saturday though. Thanks everyone!
PS the voucher is actually a really beautiful gold coin <gasp>
Crikey! Who knew it would be so hard! Everything is so expensive in there £50 isn't much at all. I could have bought a pair of converse trainers, but they don't suit my feet really, or I could blow it all on makeup. If only they'd got me JL vouchers - I could have got loads from there <ungrateful>. I will wait for the sales I think...
