Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar | Liverpool

One of my favourite shops in the city is Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar, it houses the best brands, the staff are always so helpful and you can finish your shopping in style in the WOW Bar upstairs. Who doesn't need a glass of Prosecco after spending their life savings at NARS?! (I also now have the new Harvey Nichols rewards app which is the best/most dangerous app to download!)

I popped in for a consultation with Laura Mercier in collaboration with Tate Liverpool as part of an ‘Art Of Style’ month influenced by The Jackson Pollock exhibition: Blind Spots. I was treated to a complimentary artistic appointment with Laura Mercier. 

I usually use NARS sheer glow foundation but felt like a bit of a change and a lot of the girls in work have been raving about Laura Mercier so I thought I'd give it a try! 

Kelly Orme was my amazing MUA for my appointment and was so lovely. Kelly gave me so much great information about the brand and the products. 

Thank you to the Harvey Nichols team for a lovely event!

Selfridges Personal Shopping | Manchester

A few weeks ago I was invited to Selfridges in Manchester to a Personal Shopping appointment on their brand new designer womenswear floor. I was pretty excited as I do like to spend my lunch hour wandering around wanting all of the pretty things.

Now, let me tell you. This resigned space is something else, I think I took about 100 photos just because everything looked so perfect! From CĂ©line, Balenciaga and one of my favourites Self Portrait. 

I was shown around the Personal Shopping area (which is an interior lovers DREAM) and talked through some of the best sellers and key pieces for AW.  

I think my favourite thing about the whole experience was the relvalation of Charlotte, Selfridge's beauty Personal Shopper. It has never crossed my mind that this isn't really available in other department stores, as each counter has their own staff. Charlotte will give you an unbiased shopping experience with regards to which brands and make sure you get what suits you and your skin. You need to get following her Instagram (@selfridges_beauty) as there's loads of previews, swatches and alerts to back in stock! Perfection.  

So if you're around Manchester, head to Selfridges to check it out. Be prepared, you'll leave with an empty bank or a very very long wishlist...

Poppy Lux | AW15

Hello, September!

As I’ve said in previous posts here, I am really looking forward to my AW wardrobe and this Poppy Lux addition is no exception. I mean, how cute?! I love the colour, the slogan and the fit. Dreamy (no pun intended)

This is from their first AW15 drop, and the second one is just as good! (trust me, I’ve seen the lookbook) 

Talkin' about daydreaming, I am currently daydreaming about what pieces I can add to my Autumn wardrobe! At the moment I'm after some cropped black cigarette pants, all of the leather and a statement knit. What's on your AW list?

You may have noticed that I’ve also chopped quiiiiite a bit of my hair off recently – what do you think!?
