Since there was not much of shopping happening as I am an entrepreneur, aka broke, I still had to buy things as I didn’ t bring shampoo and conditioner. And for christ sake: Cosmetic shopping is not really shopping. Beauty products except decorative cosmetics at least. So.
When visiting the Metropole shopping center next to the Hotel de Paris (where the big bucks are staying) I found the Philip B. shampoo which is on my radar since a while. Peppermint Volume. WHAT A SHAMPOO. And matching conditioner. Rubbing your head it feels as your brain chews menthol chewing gum. I swear. Totally refreshing and purifying and everything positive you can think of. Fluffy hair. For ONE day. The next day you look like a drowned puddle. About 30 Euros (little less). But worth it.
Nevertheless I was totally happy to buy SOMETHING. Little consumption addict me. Plus I plundered Hediard and Fauchon. The Chanel equivalent in food. LOADS of chocolate which didn’t even make it entirely to Vienna.
