Where To Eat In Nottingham: Copper

If you’re in need of a seriously good scone or slice of amazing home baked cake then Copper is the place to head. They have three locations in Nottingham, one city centre, Mapperley and West Bridgford. I’ve been to all three and they’re all amazing. I’m here to chat all things cream tea today but their brunch, main meals and lunchtime menu are equally awesome. I really recommend heading here if you’re anywhere near and are the slightest bit hungry.

My Run5.30 Nottingham Experience

When you tell people you’ve signed up to run a 5.3k race at 5.30am in the morning, most of them look at you like you’re a bit crazy! I felt a bit crazy as I got up at 4.30am on a Friday morning ready to get in my taxi at 5am and run around Nottingham city centre at half 5 in the morning.

Run 5.30 is an annual event where you can discover your city at a totally unknown time to you by running 5.3k at 5.30 in the morning. It’s a completely different feeling to wandering around the town centre at a normal time and it’s was so cool. The event began in Modena to encourage local people to take part in some physical activity and the creators now have 13 events across Italy, 3 in the UK and 2 in the USA. How great that Nottingham, Derby and Leicester are the UK ones? I think it really puts the East Midlands on the map!

These ASOS babies are also under £30 which is a super-bargain and are really great quality. Styled up here with my (also favourite and super comfortable) Vans Old Skool and trusty white knit.

The Saturday Files

My Saturdays have been a little crazy recently, we had our mini break to Oxford, we visited my parents back in Bath (hey, Grillstock!) and I spent a Saturday shooting some awesome photos for the blog with Anna from Pear & Bear Photography too. I love being busy but my Saturdays are always the best when they’re lazy. Usually, I head to Crossfit for 8am for an interval session and to catch up with the team there. Then, I head home, grab some breakfast and tidy round the house before we head into town for some lunch or just a coffee.
