'Avin a bite at Ed's
ALI and her frapp
A reenactment of our expressions during the Cow 'incident' 

Hey Guys, here are some pictures from our trip into Birmingham, and although it wasn't exactly shorts and sunnies wearing weather (not that we've come to expect anything more) we still had a pretty good time.

So the main aim of going into Town was to pick up some presents for our friend's Birthdays (joint presents are sooo much easier) and surprisingly it didn't take us long to find what we were looking for: a pair of palazzo trousers from River Island, 'Pink Noveau' from MAC and a shorts and top combo from Urban Outfitters.

In celebration we headed off to Ed's Easy Diner in Selfridges, definitely a recommendation if you're peckish and in Birmingham- as you can see we polished off the lot! They definitely do the best burgers (totally regret not getting one of their famous milkshakes) as well as transporting you straight back to the 1950s. Being able to choose a hit from that era (authentic jukeboxes on each table) also adds to the experience!

We then trekked to Cow Vintage in order to have a mooch around. Definitely sell some good stuff, but the prices are a bit disappointing. However, it seems hygiene is not top of their we found out. So whilst searching through their two pieces, we had no idea of the surprise we had in store as we examined the bottoms of one particular ensemble. Whilst turning them inside out and enthusing about how much we like them, we soon discovered the horrors that lurked below and our expressions soon turned to disgust as we noticed mysterious white 'stains' (shiver). Believe us, we sanitized immediately once leaving.

In order to comfort ourselves we went for a cheeky Starbucks and ordered a mango frappuccino and a chai tea latte. After giving our names (as you now do in England) clearly and precisely, we sat down awaiting our drinks and apparently our new names. 'A mango frapp for ALI' was followed by 'A chai tea latte for NIKKI'. Really?! So from now on we've decided to simply make up a name on the spot.

Well that was our exciting day in Brum, we hope it was an entertaining read. Till next time,
Anna and Lil x
