You’re about to see a lot of Italian tasty treats heading your way over the next two months because I have some exciting news. I’ve become a Very Important Bella for Bella Italia and it’s my job until the end of the year to let you know what the absolute most delicious things are on the menu and what’s good for which occasion! They have supplied me with an amazing Gold Card and you can guess what that means.
A super quick but super yummy post for you all this week. Thorntons were lovely enough to invite me down to their new Intu Victoria Centre shop this week for a quick whizz round the bijou store and a whistle-stop tour of their Christmas collection. Obviously, it was chocolate so I was more than happy to pop down after work and the staff were so lovely, kind and helpful and the products are so cute that I just wanted to share a little Christmassy joy.
Sundays are the days for having fun, doing something cute with the people you love and chilling out to the max. This weekend we had a DIY and jobs day on Saturday after a crazy weekend of entertaining the weekend before and then Sunday was all about relaxing and taking time for ourselves.
Whilst DIYing and general life changes happening everything can get a bit crazy so it was time for a fun day to ourselves. We headed out for some house shopping at H&M home, some autumnal warming lunch at Pieminister and a cinema trip to watch Winnie The Pooh (seriously cute, go and see it!). If we have plans like this for a Sunday then I’ll get a proper ‘outfit’ together and hopefully get an outfit snap or two! Saturdays are spent food shopping and cleaning so usually not a sassy outfit and usually hair up in a pineapple so here’s my casual but with a funky red lip outfit to head out in.
Last weekend I had a very lovely visit to the new Converse store that’s recently launched at East Midlands McArthurglen Designer Outlet and we were greeted by wall to wall Converse – exactly what you’d expect.
I know what you’re thinking, weren’t they all just random neon yellow pairs that no one wanted from online? I’m not going to lie to you, there were a few random pairs knocking about on their sample sale style walls but seriously, there were so many bargains and so many pairs that you’d really want. These guys? £60 on the highstreet – so many pairs in every size for £40. That’s a £20 saving and £20 more to spend in the Cadbury outlet store. Yep.
Just in case you don’t follow me on Instagram I’ll fill you in on my life lately. My Sunday brunch was a little different last weekend. Whereas it’s normally telly and a veggie sausage sandwich that I kick start my day with, last weekend was more about giving something back to the community that I’m actually about to move into.
Brunch is my favourite food group and yep, I’ll accept being basic af with that admission but, what you gonna do? This gal likes eggs, and anything on toast. Last week I popped to Cartwheel in Nottingham with my hun Robyn for a catch up. She took the photos that I obviously couldn’t take myself – thanks babe!
We’ve had a snippet of summer recently and it’s got me very excited for some sunshine as I’m sure it has for you guys too. Summer means barbecues, cute white tops, making a bee line for the beer garden after work and of course, upgrading your sunglasses collection. I headed down to Loxley for a lovely bloggers event last week to check out their new sunglasses launch, catch up with some lovely people and meet some new blogger babes too.
What’s your perfect Saturday? Mine is definitely something food and fun based and that’s exactly what the recent Bumble event organised by the gorge Jess was all about. A bunch of us blogger babes headed to Oscar & Rosie’s in Nottingham to create our own pizzas, learn how to chuck the dough about and basically have the best time ever.
For my last post of 2017 I wanted to tell you all about a super sweet event that the lovely Jess arranged as part of her BumbleBFF Queen Bee appointment! She is definitely the perfect Queen Bee for the blogger babes of Notts and she’s doing a fab job. Let’s get down to the last festive post of this year, a Christmas themed afternoon tea at the Pudding Pantry in Nottingham.
