On with the show...the photo show, that is. Our fourth day in London (and our last day...insert sad face here) was our most favorite. We started the morning with a tour of Westminster Abbey, which just so happens to be the MOST beautiful cathedral we have ever seen, including all of the other cathedrals we saw on our trip. Afterwards, we headed to Paddington Station to take the train to Windsor Castle. I have to say, no words can do that justice. No. Words. We loved every single thing about it. And the town of Windsor...yep, I want to live there. We wrapped up the evening with dinner at Jackson + Rye in SoHo and walked the city one last time at nightfall.

A very special thank you to our friend Christine who so generously shared some of her favorite French beauty products with us. We just love everything and can't wait to report back to you guys with our thoughts! Thanks so much for watching!!
We always like to take time just to peruse Sephora's website to see the latest and greatest that has come out. The beauty lover in us just can't stay away! We recently came across this new product from Drybar that looks so interesting, especially with summer on the horizon. It's the Gold Mine Shimmering Leave-In Conditioner. We've never tried Drybar products but have heard amazing reviews. But a conditioning product that shimmers?? Hmmm... Will this work? Could it be perfect for summer? You tell us!
What it is:
A lightweight leave-in conditioner loaded with benefits.
What it does:
This all-in-one formula packs ten perks into one step. It conditions, detangles, and evens texture for a sophisticated finish. The protective formula prevents hair from future damage, provides moisture, and imparts shine while softening and restoring elasticity to hair. Superfine mica adds a multidimensional shimmering effect. Gold Mine is accented with top notes of sheer floral and fresh coconut for a breezy, exotic fragrance.
-Apply all over on damp hair.
-Spray liberally on roots to mid-shaft of hair, combing through to evenly distribute.
-Style hair as usual.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
This product has not been tested on animals.
Do you guys love this idea or should we just leave it??
We spent our Monday in London much more laid back than the other days, therefore you'll notice a lot less photos in this post. We started the morning out with a tour of the Tower of London with one of the famous beefeaters, then made our way to St Paul's Cathedral and to the National Gallery at Trafalgar Square...just a quiet day steeped in history and art.

Tower Bridge just in the background
an interior courtyard...so hard to believe that so much torture took place in this square
I have a major craving for a turquoise front door now
St Paul's Cathedral...highly recommend the audio tour if you ever get the chance to visit
Nelson's Column at Trafalgar Square
No photos were allowed inside of St Paul's or the National Gallery. I would have loved to share a glimpse into both with you.
I promise to be back sooner rather than later with the pics from our last day in London...our favorite!!
