Selfridges Beauty Personal Shopping | Manchester

So I have been raving about this to anyone who'll listen, posting on Twitter and Instagram (and a little bit in this earlier blog post) - the world needs to know. 

Selfridges Manchester have introduced beauty personal shopping, in the form of the wonderful human Charlotte Ingram. Charlotte is possibly one of the most friendly people I've ever had the pleasure to speak to, with a never ending knowledge (and passion) of all the amazing products to be found in Selfridges beauty hall.    

The beauty personal shopping space is so peaceful, away from the crowds that surround the make-up counters. Charlotte can curate a hand picked and tailored package of products for you to test in-front of the mirror, or you can walk around the store and try as you go - its all customized around your shopping needs. 

Charlotte's services range from picking the perfect foundation, a new fragrance or helping to choose gifts - there's no limit to this one-on-one unbiased shopping experience. You can book yourself in for an hour long consultation, completely free of charge! For enquiries contact Charlotte directly at If you cant get yourself down to Selfridges, I'd highly recommend following Charlotte's Instagram profile (@selfridges_beauty) where you'll find loads of info about new releases, back in stock items and you can order there and then with worldwide shipping. Amazing. Just in time for (dunndunndunnn) Christmas!

October | Topshop pinafore #ootd


It’s been a while, sorry about that! However, I’m back with a few great posts in store so please keep an eye out. Some of you may know if you follow me on Twitter and have been privy to my incessant birthday chatter, October is my birthday month! I’m a triplet and my boyfriend also shares the same birthday (crazy, right?) so I think it’s only fair that having to share my birthday allows me to milk it slightly...

I absolutely love Autumn and A/W fashion is something I get very excited about. Having my birthday around the corner gets me a bit... spendy. I picked up this pinafore dress in Topshop with my birthday in mind, as I thought it would be a nice casual outfit when I see my family, friends etc.  I love an item that can be worn in different ways, I can already visualise how many tees, roll necks and shirts I can pair with this pinafore! 

Shirt - Topshop 
Pinafore- Topshop
Bag - & Other Stories
Shoes - ASOS 

What do you think?
