#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!

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

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

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.
