Autumn/ Winter Fashion Event - Intu Merry Hill

A couple of weekends ago, I headed over to Merry Hill for their Autumn/ Winter fashion event. Although Merry Hill (Dudley) is a bit of a further drive from me, it's definitely the place to go if you want to do some serious shopping. I went with the mindset of getting quite a few additions for my autumn wardrobe and that's exactly what I did.

It's always good to pop over to Merry Hill when they are having one of their fashion weekends as there are lots of discounts to be had and entertainment all round with fashion shows and craft areas. It's a nice opportunity to pick up on the new seasons upcoming trends. I collected a voucher booklet from the concierge desk offering varied discounts around the centre. I was kindly gifted a £30 gift card too.

Couldn't resist this bobble head people in H&M!

I felt that this year the fashion pods were more frequently spaced with more goings on throughout the day which was great as you could be in and out of shops and still catch the various fashion shows. I'd say that more brands took part in the fashion display this time and there were some lovely outfits presented from shops that I wouldn't generally go to.

Fashion Shows - River Island, Topshop, Primark

The best thing about Merry Hill is there is something for everyone. There's a huge selection of shops for men, women and children as well as Eat Central with a great selection of restaurants. I'd definitely recommend visiting Merry Hill if you're looking to start your Christmas shopping as the late night opening times are convenient and you won't struggle to find gifts!

Superdry Store

I was really excited to find there is now a Liz Earle counter in Boots. Apparently it had only opened a couple of days before. I'd been wanting to repurchase my Cleanse & Polish for a while so this was convenient!

Boots - Liz Earle, Smashbox, Bumble & Bumble, Tiger (the cutest, most random shop ever)

Here is a look at a few of the clothing items I picked up featuring Topshop, River Island and New Look mainly. Keep an eye out for future outfit posts featuring these!

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 all of this, I could probably count the number of times I had left the house without ma…

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 brush and this plum colour is perfe…

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.

Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18


Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14



Other items I considered buying:

This grey jewelled clutch bag caught my eye and was £20.
I was reall…
