A Shopping Trip in the Bullring

I love going shopping in the Bullring but I tend to go to other places now as I don't like driving to town  because of the hideous car parking costs and it is quite likely that i'll get lost because of a silly road diversion (It's happened!). I find it's easier to go to places like The Fort and Merry Hill in terms of parking. However, I ventured into town on Saturday having no idea where to catch the bus as all the routes have changed but I made it. Town was surprisingly quiet, most likely because of the protests that were going on. It meant I didn't have to waste precious shopping time queuing though!  I met up with my lovely friend Catrin  and had a good catch up and a productive shopping trip! Topshop Spotty Dress £18 (Reduced from £32!) I'm not one for rummaging through the sales but this dress was literally sticking off the rail. I picked it up and it was the right size!  I was planning on wearing this to #VintSetFest tomorrow night

Pastel Converse

Converse aren't something that I would normally go for as they're not really girly enough for me and I tend to only wear trainers at the gym but when pretty colours are involved, I easily get converted.  I posted a picture on Instagram (lopsywings) about a month ago of two pairs of Converse that I couldn't decide between.  Which ones did I get?! I love pink but I chose the pastel purple ones as I thought that I'll probably get more wear out of them. I prefer how these ones have purple piping rather than black. They have interchangeable floral tongues and I wore them quite a lot before the heatwave came so they were a good purchase! Converse Chuck Taylor® All Star® Multi Tongue  £49.99 I've had a pair of Converse personalised before, if you're interested in that you can see my post here . xxxx Tasha

Summer Empties

A little bit late this month but I decided to make the most of the weather and take my pictures outside! Here's what i've used up: Bioderma 250ml - If you haven't tried this yet, i'd recommend that you go and get yourself some! It's amazing how a water based product can cleanse your face so thoroughly.  Batiste Dry Shampoo - Light and Blonde/Wild - I prefer the original dry shampoo's to the hint of colour. It made my hair really yellow whereas the regular ones tend to brighten my hair but as always with dry shampoo, it has to be Batiste. No7 Eye Make Up Remover - This is a great product and definitely worth getting if you have a £5 off No7 voucher. I went to repurchase this today but my local store was sold out.  Sure Compressed Deodorant Rituals Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel - Indian Rose and Sweet Almond Oil - This came in a Glossybox a fair while ago but I put off using it because the bottle was pretty, it

Glossybox July 2013 - Seaside Splash Edition

I've been super busy with deadlines recently and haven't been posting much but I couldn't not post about this month's Glossybox. Last month's one didn't get a mention but for those of you waiting on the postman this one's a winner! The seaside themed box is really cute and makes a difference to the regular pink ones.  First up, Anatomicals 'Spray Misty For Me' Facial Spritz.  I took a similar product to this away with me on holiday and it came in really useful. It was nice and refreshing so I'd definitely recommend packing something like this if you haven't been on holiday yet. Well with the current heat wave that we've got in the UK at the moment, it will come in handy anyway! You can use it to set makeup as well. It's lavender and peppermint scented and retails for £6 for 100ml. This is a full size version too. Next up, a Ciate Nail Varnish in 'The Glossip' , nail varnish colours in Glossybox can be
