Kat Von D Shade + Light // Swatches

πŸŽ‰Β Kat Von D make-up and perfume is now available in-store in MCR Debenhams!Β πŸŽ‰


I feel like I’ve waited an eternity for the KVD range to be physically available for me to test and pore over and drop all of my money on, so I was ecstatic to find out that Debenhams Market Street now have in-store stock.

The Bassano Bar MCR

Bassano Bar MCR

Located on the up and coming First Street you’ll find the Italian influenced Bassano Bar standing out from the crowd, with its all glass exterior and gorgeous lavender blooms inviting you in for a closer look. Accompanied by my gorgeous date for the evening (my wife), we made our way down on a quiet Thursday evening after the post-work rush to try some of the menu, and I instantly fell in love.
