A Girls Day at The Bull Ring...


My friends are so important to me (and so is shopping, just so we're clear..), so when you have a day combining the two, it's only gonna' end well!

The date has been in the diary for a while and this last week there has been countdown messages exchanged peaking last night with the 'what you wearing' texts, it was literally like Christmas...I don't get to see this group of friends that often, they live in the 'middle', I live in the South West however, we've been friends for nearly 18 years (you do the math) and no matter what, we laugh, chat, confide, enjoy a glass of bubbles and erm, shop!

The venue, The Bull Ring in Birmingham...undoubtedly one of my fave shopping Mecca's in the UK!

Luckily, we all share a love of the same shops too..So, after our early morning caffeine hit, we soldiered on with our quest!

We lunched at Ekachai Noodle Bar in Selfridges before scouring all 4 floors...;


The incredible crispy duck salad!

Lunchtime refreshments...

The hearty lunch and warm up drinks set us up perfectly for the afternoon..In fact, all of my purchases (bar one) were made in the concessions in Selfridges...It was only when we were on the escalator that I clocked the PRIMARK sign though..Primark has stocked menswear in Selfridges for a year or so and this week, they opened up one for us girls! 

They had a great capsule selection from which I splashed out an outstanding £7 (!!!!) on these BRIGHT pink jeggings...;


£7!!!

I also bought this top that I featured in Colour Popping Monochrome from Topshop, in the sale for £15..;


Top and jeans = £22!

The jeggings are beyond comfy too, major result (the elasticated waist is catering for my souvenir from Cancun!). They will be getting dressed up and then banged on with my cons and as is right now, my sandals!

I also treated myself to a new lippy... I'm not big on make up, I tend to stick to the bare minimum but after being a quick dash via MAC in Selfridges, I invested in these...;



The lippy - Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo
The lip pencil - Boldly Bare

The lovely chap at MAC advised to put the lip liner on first on the top lip only for a fuller look and then apply the lippy.. The finished result..;


MAC pout!

As we got to the top of Selfridges' we were in need of an afternoon pick-me-up...;


Advice - If you do want to eat here you need to book!

The final buy (I bet you can't guess...) was this aqua and gold statement necklace from Butterfly by Matthew Williamson at Debenhams...;



The necklace has a magnet clasp (shown in pic 1 and 3 at the front) and can be worn twisted, straight and any which way. I'm thinking this would look great with the new River Island jumpsuit, black, navy and crisp white..how exciting!!

I'm off out to show the shoppers at Waitrose my new jeggings...;



What do you think? Did the girl do good...?
