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.

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

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.

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
