I was so excited to attend Style Birmingham Live this year, I went last year and had such a great time! I usually work weekends but managed to get the day off so I could go along. We were invited to a VIP catwalk show, we were given a token for a free glass of bubbly and headed to the VIP area. The DJ was amazing, I felt like I was still in Ibiza ( I came home a few days earlier)

We then headed into the main room for the show. It's a lovely intimate show with only a few rows of seats. The lovely Mark Wright and Stylist Mark Heyes were great hosts!

I'm loved the catwalk and there was some great must have autumn/ winter trends. The music was fab and the models looked gorgeous, Hair by Francesco Group and Make up by Make Up Forever.

John Lewis opened the show, with our brand new John Lewis just opening in Birmingham Grand Central. They had some amazing tailored pieces including capes, brogues and a classic white shirt.

It's all about fringing! Fringe is so on trend and will be going forward into Spring/ Summer. I love fringe bags and detailing on boots and jackets. Faux Fur is another huge trend. I spotted some fab Faux fur waistcosts and sleeveless jackets from Debenhams and New Look during the show.

There was alot of red and burgundy, dark florals and vintage prints. It's all about being clever and picking out the key pieces to add to your wardrobe. I'd say everyone needs a tailored style jacket / coat, some boots, some fringe and some winter florals.

I had such an amazing time at the event and it was lovely to catch up with some amazing bloggers. Style Birmingham is always in September and tickets start at around £16.50 You get loads of discounts throughout the city during the weekend with your ticket and VIP ticket holders get a goody bag.  Birmingham is growing so this is an event not to be missed, keep your eyes and ears open for Style Birmingham 2016

If you haven't heard about Grand Central opening in Birmingham yet, where have you been? A couple of weeks ago Grand Central opened in Birmingham. There is some amazing brands and stores that have taken over the old New Street Station.

I'm so excited about the Cath Kidston store, another Mac store and John Lewis. It's exactly what Birmingham needs. Grand Central is so hustle and bustle its great for the City. There's some really amazing restaurants aswell!

I was a little bit crazy but headed into Birmingham for the Opening night of Grand Central. It was really busy but I think the day had been worse. I headed to T.H Baker for their launch and had such an amazing night.

T.H Baker is such a great addition for Birmingham. They have some amazing brands and stock some great designer brands including Links, Swarovski, DKNY and Nomination.

I had a great night chatting to other bloggers at the event and had a great catch up, T.H Baker put on a fab night!

Check out the T.H Baker website here, the Grand Central station is located right by the escalators which is a great spot opposite the New John Lewis store.

We were also gifted a lovely gift bag full of goodies which I will be featuring and reviewing on the blog soon.


I have mentioned recently that Clint and myself are looking at moving out and need to save, we have mentioned starting our christmas shopping a little earlier than usual so we can spread out the cost over the next few months. It's also my dads birthday coming up so I thought i'd put together a little gift guide for him just to get some ideas rolling. My dad is a gadgety person he'd much rather get a toy than something he actually needs, he'd love something like this RC Helicopter from Menkind or this speaker for your phone. I like to buy my dad and clint some essentials, this Pearly King Burrow Knit jumper from Reem Clothing is gorgeous, it would be perfect for the colder months but would be great for christmas parties or boxing day dinner at nans! I think these Vito Cotton trousers from Reem Clothing would go really nice with the jumper. I think you can't go wrong with some aftershave and slippers for any man in your life, the New Sauvage aftershave by Dior smells amazing!

What do you get the men in your life for christmas or birthdays?

I'm trying to save money this season as I really want to move house so need to save up a deposit. I think i'm going to pick out and buy some key pieces for the season that I will be able to work into a few different outfits. I've picked out this gorgeous Grey sleeveless cardigan with the fringe hem from New Look, I think this would work with so many different outfits. You can wear it with jeans and a black top for a really easy casual look and then dress it up with heels for a few drinks. This skirt from Coast is gorgeous, they have some really nice pieces in their A/W sale which started yesterday. I love the tree print, it's a twist on a winter floral. The pinks and blues are so pretty, this is such a lovely skirt and it's reduced to £39. I love this Khaki Tshirt from New Look.  I've actually bought a really similar Khaki tshirt to this, (YOU CAN SEE IT IN MY LATEST OUTFIT POST HERE ) I love khaki and I think it's such a lovely autumn colour, i'll be wearing this so much this season. I'm loving t-shirts with my skinny jeans and some lovely ankle boots, these ones from Office are gorgeous, I've been wearing a really gorgeous pair I picked up in Primark. I've just bought a new Fedora, they are perfect for Autumn with the wind and showers. I love this floppy style from Topshop, I bought a really similar one from Primark the other day for £8!

It's about being clever with your money and buying those key autumn season essentials. This Autumn I think floral skirts, sleeveless jackets, fedoras and Chunky Boots are a must have, and just whip out your faux fur Gilet from last year!



MONDAY - We've just got back from Ibiza, I thought i'd share a few things we did during our week in Ibiza. We got there on the monday morning. we had a little chill by the pool and then got ready for the Holi Garden Festival which is like a powder paint party. The music was amazing and it was so so much fun. The Dj was soo good and we met some lovely people and had such a good night!

TUESDAY - BOAT PARTYYY! we went on the Pukka Up boat party. It was so good, really chilled out. We sailed out into the middle of the sea and then the party started! The music was so good, ibiza is amazing! We met some really fab people and had such an amazing time, we headed back in land as the sun set, it was gorgeous. After the boat party, we had a cheeky burger king and then headed back to the hotel and got ready for Amnesia, Example and Pendulum were performing it was so good! The drinks were so expensive 31 euro for 2 drinks.

WEDNESDAY - OCEAN BEACH CLUB, it's a luxury vip style pool area. It's such a lovely day, we got a couple of sunbeds, and relaxed all day! The music is so good and was really chilled out. The pool is really nice and the drinks are good too! You could literally just chill on your lounger all day and they will bring over anything you need. I really enjoyed ocean beach, i'm so glad we went, as I had heard some mixed reviews.

THURSDAY - chilled by the pool and then went on a bar crawl, my favourite bar was Soulcity! They played some really good r'n'b music and it was a really good atmosphere. After the barcrawl we shared a KFC and went and sat on the beach front. Clint did a birthday shoutout in Soulcity and everyone sang happy birthday to me. 

We had a chill day, went for lunch on the beach front. On the night we went to the Ibiza Rocks Hotel to watch What Hannah Wants. It was so good, we got 2 for 1 tickets aswell because it was my birthday. After the show we headed to the Ibiza Rocks bar on the beach as this is quite close to our hotel. We had a few drinks and I had a really nice birthday with Clint. 

SATURDAY - We got a water taxi over to Cala Bassa which is a gorgeous beach. It's really secluded theres nothing around just a small restaurant and the sea! We spent the day sunbathing and chilling out. We went back to the hotel and decided to get ready early so we could have dinner watching the sunset. We went to Kanya which is a restaurant just further along than Cafe Mambo and the sunset strip as this can be really expensive. We had a lovely meal and then had some frozen yoghurt and had some drinks at Cafe Mambo. 

SUNDAY - OUR LAST DAY BOO! We went to San Antonio beach and chilled out by Ibiza Rocks Bar. We had an amazing breakfast with pancakes mmmm and I had the most gorgeous frozen strawberry daiquiri on the beach. We had an amazing last day chilling and trying to top up our tans, We went to Tapas which you may have guessed is a Tapas restaurant. It was amazing. it just up a dark road opposite burger king on the main road by the beach. Its seriously amazing! It was so busy and they were fully booked up for the night. We managed to get a table though, the food was so tasty, it was the perfect end to our perfect week away!

I had such a great week and birthday! I didn't wanna come home and i'd go to Ibiza again, there is so so much to do! We had a great mixture of party and chilling out which was so perfect.
