Mini Haul and a Makeover!

So... I was happily driving down the road the other day when I received a call (don't stress, I have handsfree!) from a lovely lady at Space.NK in Birmingham. What did she want? She wanted to know if I would like to go and meet their visiting Laura Mercier make up artists for a complimentary makeover.

Being a fan of that particular brand, I jumped at the chance and so Wednesday I toddled along to Birmingham. As always, I was made to feel very welcome.

I was introduced to their new colours and left looking appropriately made up for my evening at the cinema with my sister (god bless orange wednesday!).

The silver and peacock green eye shadows were beautiful on me but I didn't think that the lip colours were anything particularly special. Has anyone else seen them? Thoughts?

I also took the opportunity to do a bit of shopping whilst I was there and this is what I brought!

Days out: Stratford Upon Avon.

So this week I managed to visit another place that I had not been to since I was a child.

First impressions were that everything was a lot smaller than I remember but then I had not been there for 25 years!

I was pleased to find that it was really easy to park and that the attractions that we visited (Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Shakespeare's Birthplace etc) were really fairly priced.

About time...!

Yay! I finally managed to upload my first video to Youtube this week.

Hope you enjoy it. It was taken at the Kelly Clarkson Concert at the O2 Academy in Birmingham in February.
