Intu Merry Hill Spring/ Summer Fashion Weekend

This weekend, the 28th and 29th March, Intu Merry Hill, will be hosting their Spring/ Summer fashion weekender with an array of fashion shows, discounts and competitions. For me, Merry Hill is the place to go as a new season is approaching as know I will always find some great updates for my wardrobe. It has all the shops you could possibly want, a yummy food hall and free parking. Last week, I attended a preview media event for this weekend where we saw some of the latest looks in a fashion show hosted by Lola Royle.

Dove Advanced Hair Series Youthful Vitality Shampoo & Conditioner These are perfect to keep hold of for travelling. I'm pleased that there is both a shampoo and conditioner because i'm sure in the past

LUSH: Valentines and Permanent Line Haul

I have a tendency to limit the use of my bath bombs and bubble bars just so that I can keep my Lush pot looking pretty. However, after having a lovely Valentine's Lush delivery arrive, I can now happily use up some of my collection without feeling slightly disheartened at a gaping hole in the pot.
