As you may know, I split my shopping time equally between Coventry and Birmingham – Coventry because I live here, and Birmingham because I sometimes get the urge to visit a River Island that is bigger than the average sized kitchen (seriously Cov, sort it out). ANYWAY, while I do generally stick to these two locations, sometimes I like to switch it up a bit by checking out other shopping centres in the local area – and this weekend, I got to tick another one of the list as I was invited along to the Kingfisher shopping centre in nearby Redditch.
To celebrate the fact that autumn/winter’s officially here, Kingfisher are hosting two events to get everyone ready for the new season. The Beauty Pod, which was open this weekend, was the place to go for expert tips and advice on the latest beauty trends, and people could also nab a makeover or makeup lesson too. Then next weekend (1st October), the centre will have pop-up fashion shows showcasing the best autumn/winter pieces available to buy in the Kingfisher shops. FYI – they have a very nicely sized River Island, not that I’m still bitter. To help me get stocked up for autumn, Kingfisher kindly gave me a voucher for the centre. I decided my makeup and skincare was in need of a bit of an overhaul, so I grabbed the Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte eyeshadow palette, NYX Liquid Suede in ‘Sandstorm’, NYX Lipliner in ‘Natural’, NYX Kohl Eyeliner, an MUA lipliner, Sanctuary Spa’s Hot Cloth Cleanser and Soap and Glory’s Rich and Foamous body wash. Keep your eyes peeled for some reviews coming soon you lucky lads and lasses.
A big thank you to Kingfisher for letting me loose amongst all of the shops! Have you tried any of the products in my haul? Let me know in the comments!
