Birmingham haul

This weekend I went to visit some other beauty bloggers for a day out in Birmingham. It was my first time visiting the city, and that coupled with the awesome amount of knowledge between them all, meant I knew I would be having a day off from my spending ban. 


Our first stop was Harvey Nichols, which also contains Birmingham's Space NK. I picked up a re-purchase of my usual REN Hydra Calm Day Cream as mine has almost run out. After chatting to Jess and Andy (skincare gurus as far as I'm concerned), I also decided to buy a serum from Elemental Herbology. I'd heard a lot about the brand previously, but after hearing Jess rave about it, I decided to go for it and buy Cell Food - a serum to help boost radiance. It retails at £42, so I'm hoping that I will see a big difference on my dull, winter skin.


The lovely assistant in Space NK also added some other Elemental Herbology samples including a moisturiser and a cleanser, which I'm really looking forward to trying. 



After lunch, we popped over to Superdrug, where I picked up a new L'Oreal nail polish. They've recently launched a top coat collection called 'confetti' and this shade (when layered over a coloured base coat) looks just like the new Illamasqua freckle style polishes. 


The last item in my haul was one that Charlotte (Lilmisschickas) kindly got for me from Sephora on her trip to New York. As an eyeliner junkie, I'd been dying to try out the Kat Von D tattoo liquid liners, so she very kindly bought one back for me. 

Shopping aside, I had such a fab day, and it was great meeting up with a group of really lovely people. Go and check out their blogs!
