A few weekends ago, I visited Birmingham to see some university friends. We studied for 3 years here and loved every minute of it. Birmingham often gets a bad reputation, but I love it. This photo was taken outside the magnificent Selfridges in the Bullring Shopping centre, the exterior was based on the sequins of a Paco Rabanne dress! Every single shop under the sun is here and I always make sure I stop by the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (which is free admission) to get some inspiration.
Ever on a budget, we booked our tickets through Red Spotted Hanky, which I love as it's fuss-free with no admin or delivery charges - we managed to get a return train ticket for £12 each. We stayed in a Pod Hotel called Nite Nite, which is basically a bed, plasma screen and bathroom - it's really clean and if you're only staying one night, it's definitely worth it - we both stayed for £42 between us.
