You guys might have seen some fun times I was having at the beginning of March with McArthurGlen Designer Outlets on a little video shoot and some Spring Summer trend picks. I was working with some awesome other bloggers from the other regions where McArthurGlen have their shopping outlets – I was repping for East Midlands in case you hadn’t guessed.
After a crazy week which involved no blogging at all we headed to Lincoln for what we hoped would be a sunny, spring-like cute day out. Unfortunately, it ended up being -2 and snowing but it was still lovely to visit somewhere new and having some time out. I love checking out new cities in the UK that we haven’t been to before and it was even nicer to just travel somewhere just for the day. Lincoln is only 55 minutes from Nottingham on the train and the train station is literally around the corner from the town centre.
If you’re looking for a really different place for an extra special occasion then Ginza Teppanyaki is the place to go. Located on the Mansfield Road, in Sherwood, this unassuming Japanese restaurant is surprisingly awesome. If you’re in Nottingham and you like Japanese flavours, freshly cooked food and amazing service, I’d definitely recommend checking this place out.
My first McCarthurGlen Designer Outlet experience was at Cheshire Oaks when I got lost with my mum on the way back from somewhere when I was about 10, I think! We thought we’d found the Mecca of shopping, it was awesome. So, when East Midlands Designer Outlet invited me along for a day of shopping to check out what they had on offer as part of their Spring/Summer accessories campaign, I was excited to say the least.
This week I had the amazing opportunity to attend the opening of Urban Outfitters in Leicester’s Highcross shopping centre. When I visited the Nottingham opening a few months ago, it was really fun. Urban Outfitters always put on great events and this one was no different! There were muffins, for a start and we were able to take home a piece from the collection and get 30% off anything else that we bought on the day. I chose this lovely Pins & Needles Tartan Shirt and some black rip-knee Cheap Monday jeans.
