Haul From Birmingham

A couple of weekends ago my boyfriend and I visited Birmingham for the first time, for our 4 years anniversary! We have both said we have wanted to visit for a while now and thought this was the perfect opportunity  We went on a Friday and returned home on a Sunday. Of course we went to do a bit of sightseeing but mainly for the shopping. So today I want to share with you what I bought!
The places I bought from are Bank, Ted Baker, Forever21, Primark and Topshop. I don't know why but when ever I visit anywhere with a Primark, I seem to head there first!? Does anyone else do that? I think I do this because my local Primark is a smallish one and can be a hit and miss but when I visit another Primark, I always come away with something!
I was also quite excited to head to Forever21 as I haven't visited one before.
From Primark, I bought these two gorgeous lace crop tops for only £4 each. I have seen these in Topshop for almost triple the price! They are gorgeous and I want to pick them up in a few more colours. I also bought these two skirts for £8 each. I'm not normally a skirt kinda girl but I fell in love with these when I saw them. I think they will look really cute in the Summer with a white crop top and converse.
Next I picked up this studded clutch bag for £6, a ring for £1.50 and two gorgeous statement necklaces at £3 each. As you can see from a previous post, I love statement necklaces and these were too good to pass up.
From Topshop, I bought my first ever blush in Morning Dew. It is such a pretty pink shade, which starts off as a cream blush and then turns to powder when applied to the skin. I am currently using my Real Techniques contour brush but I'm kinda thinking that a stippling brush would be better? Any recommendations would be much appreciated!
From Bank, I bought this black high waisted skirt in which I wore on a recent night out. It's from a brand called Glamorous and was only £18. I know I said up there that I wasn't much of a skirt person but I'm trying to change my wardrobe up a bit and thought this was such a nice wardrobe piece to have. It fits really nice and is such a lovely material.
From Ted Baker, I bought these gorgeous flip flops for £35! I originally saw these in Office and was going to purchase them but then waited until we visited Birmingham as I was told there was a Ted Baker store. I am so happy that I waited as I got a cute box to put them in and a lovely big Ted Baker bag to carry them in. Sad, I know but them little extras please me! I think I'm going to do a separate post on these beauties!

So that is what I bought. You might of realised that I haven't posted what I bought in Forever21. That's because all I bought was underwear and I wasn't too sure how I felt about posting them on here? They are so pretty and were a right bargain, some were only 99p each!

  5. I would definitely have waited to visit a Ted Baker shop too just for the bag! They are such gorgeous bags and those little details make all the difference. The flipflops themselves are gorgeous too, I've been after a pair for a while now. xo

  6. Wow! I can't believe those lace tops are only £4 - they are practically identical to the more expensive ones in Topshop. Great posts! :D

  7. i love the primark crop tops, i have them in black and white! xxx

  8. Amazing products ! Love the blusher


Thank you for leaving a comment. I read each and every one and will try and answer any questions you may have! xx
