B & B: Birmingham and Ballet Flats

The last time I've been to Birmingham was nearly four years ago.  I think it's the capital city of the Midlands (the middle bit of England).  Unfortunately, I don't know enough about it, except that it has one of the biggest shopping centres I know -- The Bullring.  One goes to Birmingham from my neck of the woods (the West midlands)  to shop and eat --  I, therefore, did both!



One (meaning myself) has to take the train to get there, so my day trip starts off at Rugby train station.




I'll be getting myself on a Virgin (the train, you naughty little thing! hahahaha)


When I arrived at Birmingham, I totally got lost on the way out!  I didn't have a clue where I was, but I saw the Bullring as we pulled into the station and just followed the streets towards that direction.  I went all around the area and called my friend to say I'll be waiting for her at the Starbucks in front of Selfridges.  My friend then tells me I must have a built-in homing device that would take me to any Starbucks wherever I am in the world.  That was hilarious, because it's probably true!!


Was supposed to meet my friend for lunch, so we decided to go for a Pizza Express meal.  Seeing this again is making my mouth water.. 




Just to prove that I was actually there... *snigger*




 
Our day will not be complete without a trip to Starbucks -- the strangely-designed Selfridges department store in the background is a Birmingham landmark.

 My friend's train arrives an hour earlier than mine.  So left to my own devices, I'm very susceptible to impulse shopping.  I hate shopping, but when I'm alone and bored in the shops, I tend to spend all my money!!!

I seem to have a penchant for metallics on that day --



  This is my favourite perfume.  I can't stop smelling myself when I wear this.



I told you I'm addicted to ballet flats! Hahahaha
