 When I was in Copenhagen recently, I couldn't resist going to H&M's latest retail venture & other stories. Upon entering the store, the immaculate and perfectly merchandised layout made every single item look appealing. The store had first caught my eye after seeing some pictures of their gorgeous packaging on Pinterest, like the nude lipstick shown above.

As I made my way down to the cosmetics section (I arrived only half an hour before closing time, so I had to prioritise), this pale pink wallet caught my eye. I've been looking for something to replace my leopard seed coin purse that I had been using while travelling, and while the colour may not be durable (time will tell), it was too pretty to pass up. As I by-passed the delicate and simple jewellery, the chic footwear and crisp lines of clothes, I came across the cosmetic section. I wish I could've bought it all. I think I picked up the lip balm in "Dungaree Rose" because of its similarity to this By Terry 'Rose Balm' (featured in many of this is glamorous's outfit posts). It was near impossible to walk past the powder and blush (in Applebloom Pink) inscribed with a quotation from Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet':

"Go girl, seek happy nights to happy days"

As Australia readies itself for the launch of H&M  - sadly not in time for the Isabel Marant collaboration - I can only hope that this may spurn on the likelihood of making shipping available to Australia from & other stories.
