A day out in Birmingham








Top Miss Selfridge | Skirt H&M | Shoes Zara

As I mentioned on Friday, my mum and I took a trip to Birmingham to go shopping. I do love to shop and it was lovely to spend a day with her as I don't get to see her nearly as much as I would like. We mainly stayed inside the Bullring, only venturing out to the Mailbox to feed my Mac addiction as the service at the Selfridges counter was awful, I know quite a few people have had bad experiences at Mac but this was the first time I've experienced it and I know that next time I go I know I won't be going back to that one. That's enough of the negativity as everything else about the day was lovely.

In selfridges I got my beautiful handbag, made a cheeky Nars purchase and spent a lot of time wondering around the food court, how cute is that bull. I also got some tasty Macarons, the pistachio one was my favourite followed closely by the blue one on the left which crazily enough was marshmallow fluff. We popped to Pizza Express to eat our weight in pizza and garlic bread and then off to Zara which was just awful, I got the dress from my July Wishlist that I was looking for but I can't wait until their Sale is over, I like my shops tidy. We then went to Waterstones to buy books, which we sat and read whilst drinking tea in Costa, what could be better than that? Before we went to catch our train home we went via the Mailbox and the Mac counter, the service was lovely but she did give me the wrong eyeshadow so now I have two of the same one but that's my fault for not checking.

All in all I had a great day, what's your favourite place to go for a shopping trip?

    1. Aha you have to, there's too many great shops not too! I didn't really understand the mailbox, it seemed like all of the shops had closed down except Harvey Nicholls but I suppose that shop alone is enough reason to go :) x

  4. Looks like you had a fabulous time! And those macaroons are making my mouth water - gorgeous pastel colours! I've only ever been to Birmingham once but didn't have much chance to look around at the shops or cute cafes much, but your post has inspired me to take another trip there soon...perhaps for the clothes show in Decemeber after little one has made his appearance! xxx
