Like most girls my age I am obsessed with Topshop. I was a teeny tiny bit (read: a lot) devastated when I came back to Durham from my Christmas break to find that my beloved Topshop was closed. Out of fear and curiosity thinking it might have closed down, I hurried across the cobbles to take a peek in the store only to find that it was having a refit! Hurrah! It has recently re-opened and I took the time after my class today have a peek inside...
I absolutely love Topshop clothing, they have such a lovely range of items to suit pretty much anybody. The Durham store used to be quite tiny and it was quite hard to shop because of the lack of rail space (clothes were stacked behind others, and you really had to hunt out a gem), however this is no more! Denim now has it's own little room, shoes cover the entire back wall, and what's especially exciting is that Durham Topshop now has a stand of Topshop Make-Up :)
Topshop make-up is relatively new to me, I've only ever used one of their kohl eyeliners before, but I loved how soft it was and ended up having a big swatching session today. The lip crayons, eyeshadow sticks and cream blushes are simply divine. I'm definitely taking J back in there for my birthday next week! I'd definitely love to pick up some nail polish, especially the shade Milkshake, which is a gorgeous baby pink.
All in all the new Durham City Topshop is small but perfectly formed, no longer cave like with wonky flooring it's now bright, colourful, easy to navigate, and all of the ladies who I spoke to today who were working the shop floor and on the tills were lovely. I'm also rather pleased with my sneaky little purchases, hello birthday outfit for Tuesday!
Well done Topshop, I can't wait until my final student loan comes in <3
