A few weeks ago now, I was invited along to a Bobbi Brown event at House of Fraser in Birmingham. This was to celebrate the launch of the new Long Wear Gel Sparkle Shadow and Liners.
A couple of weeks ago I went along to see the Bullring’s Autumn Fashion Fix show. There’s one thing that the Bullring really know how to do right and that’s fashion shows. I’ve attended this each year for the past three years and they just get better and better.
They always feature clothes that are available to buy in the Bullring and feature loads of different brands from New Look to Ted Baker, so there’s something for every budget. This year, I fell in love with the metallic trend, particularly the rose gold metallic leather skirt from River Island. If only I had £50 to spare (it was £100 when I first saw it) – I’m going to be keeping my eye out for a cheaper alternative.
What are your favourite trends for this coming season?
It had been a while since I last attended a meet up in Birmingham. We used to have them quite regularly and I’ve even organised two myself which you can read about here and here. So as you can imagine, I was quite excited to attend the one that Abbi had organised last week.
The meet up was held in the Slug and Lettuce at Brindleyplace, which is such a great venue. We were all given a fantastic goody bag each and then we all introduced ourselves to the group. There were a couple of games for us which Abbi had organised with some fantastic prizes and then of course there was the buffet.
I had a great day with Paige, Rachel and our new buddy Sophie. It’s so good spending time with other people who have the same interests as you and don’t give you funny looks when you’re instagramming your food again. The highlight of the goody bags were some fantastic organisers that Abbi had created herself to help us to keep our blogging lives in check – this is such an amazing idea and I think she needs to go on Dragon’s Den and get these made for real.
