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 but with the weather the way it is, I may have to find something else :/

New Look Swing Cami £9.99

I love this plum colour and the style of these tops. Almost £10 for a 'vest' top is a bit steep though but then again, Topshop are charging £18!

Necklace £3.99

Boots Kiss Nail Glue, Batiste Dry Shampoo and Dove Gradual Tan Moisturising Summer Glow Lotion

Everytime I use nail glue, I manage to glue the lid on and then can't get in it again so I need to be more careful with this one! This one was £2.79.

Batiste was on offer for £1.99 instead of £2.99, so I picked up two bottles and the Dove lotion was half price at £2.49 so hopefully this will keep my tan topped up!

Forever 21 Silver Cross Necklace

This was a bargain at only £2.40. There was a huge selection of gold jewellery in store, especially statement necklaces which I was after but i've always been a silver girl so didn't get anything else. It's worth a look if you're not fussy like me as they have some lovely pieces.

Ted Baker Make Up Bag

Finally, I picked up a Ted Baker Make Up Bag for my friends birthday today. I love the design and wanted to keep it for myself! It was £22.

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

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

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great
