Birchbox at Selfridges

    So, whilst in London a few weekends ago I dragged Taylor to Oxford Street with the intention of getting one thing – a DIY Birchbox from Selfridges.


    I’ve always been a fan of beauty boxes and made the difficult decision over a year and a half ago to subscribe to Glossybox. I chose Glossybox originally as I thought it had more brands that I liked, and I thought their website was really girly, yet clean and minimalistic. I’d heard of Birchbox and known people that had been subscribed in the past, yet a gut instinct meant I chose not to go with them.


    However, now having a little more disposable income, and falling in love with my monthly Glossybox, I had been thinking about getting another monthly box of some sort. That is when my Instagram became flooded with pictures of Birchbox at Selfridges. A DIY beauty box? As in, YOU pick the samples?! Sold!

    My recent stay with ME London

    I’ve had the pleasure of recently staying with ME London for one night on two occasions over the past month, and I wanted to share my experiences.


    I can most definitely start off by saying that the first impressions of the hotel are just jaw dropping – every inch of the hotel has been so meticulously designed to give a sleek, classy and modern finish.

    Who Am I?

    Right, lets get this awkward introduction over and done with: My name’s Jodie. I’m twenty years old and I reside in Kent in England.

    I’ve read beauty/fashion/lifestyle blogs for years and always secretly wanted to have one. I’ve got to a point in my life now where I’ve realised that the only person stopping me from doing things I want to do is me.

    So, welcome to my blog. This blog is a little insight into my self, my life, my dreams and my mistakes. I’m not sure where this journey is going to take me, but I am hoping it will allow me to rediscover hobbies I’ve forgotten, discover new interests, make new friends and smile a lot more.

    Just so we aren’t complete strangers, here are some not-so-interesting facts about me:

    x I have a cat named Prince, who is also sometimes called Princetopher (like Christopher)
    x Taylor Swift is my secret fave. Always has been, always will be.
    x My favourite book is The Lost Daughter by Diane Chamberlain. It was Gone Girl, but then they cast Emily Ratajkowski in the movie and I don’t really like her so the book was ruined for me forever. Cry.
    x I love all things Cath Kidston
    x I can (kind of) play guitar
    x I have an older sister who lives in New York City. #Jel.
    x Pizza and nachos are my favourite food.
    x I have an amazing boyfriend of two years who is my absolute rock
    x I like flowers and all things pretty
    x I pretty much only dress in black & white

    This will be my utopia. Thus, welcome to Jodetopia.
