We are Fashion Live - Merry Hill


Merry Hill are holding a fashion and beauty event this weekend, the 8th and 9th March. 


As a preview for this weekend, I was invited to an event on Monday night alongside some of the bloggers that I had met at the Birmingham Bloggers Meet Up back in January. 


Me and Clare

It was held in Pizza Express and we were treated to Krispy Kreme doughnuts, tonnes of pizza, massages, a goody bag and surrounded by party hats and feather boas whilst getting a fashion showcase preview.


A variety of stores had some of their staff modelling the up and coming trends for this season:


Monochrome
Sporty
Prints
Brights

(L-R, Warehouse, Vero Moda, Oasis, New Look, Jack Jones)

My favourite outfits are the Warehouse Maxi Dress £80, only £60 with the 20% off voucher and the Vero Moda outfit, Jacket £75, Shirt £18 and Sweater only £9!


Inside our goody bag, we received the voucher booklet that you can get your hands on this weekend to get some amazing deals in 30 stores! Here are some of my favourite:



20% off Boux Avenue (New to Merry Hill!)
20% off Vero Moda
20% off Internacionale
25% off Warehouse


Around the centre, there will be beauty pods offering treatments and fashion zones showing you the latest trends. Look out for the flash mobs too that will give you a chance to win some prizes!

Looks like we'd left a hen party!

Sorry for the picture heavy post.

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

OOTD: I'll Show You

After quite a long break, I really want to start blogging regularly again. Time really does run away from us so let's see how this goes.... First up, an outfit of the day featuring my favourite store: River Island. Striped Shirt: River Island £36 Black Joni Jeans: Topshop £36 Boots: River Island £50 (last year) I went on a bit of a spending spree a few weeks ago ahead of the Christmas festivities as I wanted to top up my wardrobe with some pieces I could throw on for last minute plans. I like the design of the shirt although I don't think the cut is very flattering. Topshop Joni Jeans are my absolute favourite, the cut and fit is perfect and I think they have used new material lately that will actually stay black and not fade to a washed out grey. I regretted buying these boots last year as I've hardly worn them and contemplated getting rid of them but I decided to pair them up with this outfit and thought they went quite well so maybe I should try

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes... Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to. My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist. BEFORE Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times
