#VintSetFest with The Vintage Set

As I mentioned in my last outfit post, I attended #VintSetFest last week hosted by The Vintage Set

The Vintage Set are a boutique available on ASOS and the event was held at the Custard Factory in Birmingham. 

Get ready for a picture heavy post!

I haven't been to the Custard Factory in so long so it was a nice surprise to see how many cute vintage shops are open down there now! To find our way down there, I met up with a few lovely bloggers at New Street Station so we could get lost together. Meeting them in New Street was a challenge as I haven't been in since the renovations have took place.

There were a bunch of lovely stalls there including Macadamia, Harri Styles, a swap rail, The Vintage Set of course, Make Up Academy and Nails by Rosie to name a few.

Whilst I was there, I tried a Silver Edition Lime Red Bull. I love anything lime and this was really nice. I'll definitely try another one! They have released a few new flavours so they're worth trying! I managed to put my bag down on some spilt drink though. Thankfully it dried clear!

There was a local band performing, a barbecue, a raffle and lots of other things to keep us entertained!

There was a question and answer session with a panel of the owner of Macadamia and representatives of ASOS and The Clothes Show Live.

I met up with some of my favourite bloggers, old and new. It's always nice to see some familiar faces!

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
