I live in a shit hole, also known as Derby. It has a pathetic excuse for a westfield, and I would prefer to live and shop anywhere else in the entire country. So me and my mother opted to jump on the train to the bullring centre in Birmingham. We hadn't been there in a long time, so it was a pleasant change from where I live.
Some of you will understandably be thinking "what the hell, I'd love to live near a westfield" -oh no, not this westfield. It was built a few years back and was expected to be TOP DAWG. Its a let down to say the least. There is pretty limited beauty supplies, its either drugstores Boots and Superdrug (which aren't impressive), or Dior and Chanel at Debemhams. Theres no middle ground like Mac. And for some unknown reason, the shops stock the most hideous clothes from the collection, you go to any other branch of the same shop, say River Island for prime example, its almost guaranteed to be a nicer clothes range than in Derby.
Rant out of the way, I was giddy at just the thought of Selfridges and Birmingham in general this morning.

I got a few others bits and bobs which are featured in my YouTube haul from this trip, but were too awkward to take decent blog worthy pictures of. Care to watch the video?:')
