intu Derby’s autumn/winter fashion event

A few weeks ago I received an invitation to the intu Derby autumn/winter fashion event. I’ve got to admit, I’d already had a sneak peek at what was to come! I’d seen some of the shows at the intu Victoria Centre in Nottingham the week before so I knew that they’d be fantastic. Rather than your typical catwalk which (let’s be honest) can be kinda boring, the models performed dance routines instead. The chorography was mostly the same but each performance had a theme which incorporated the music and the clothing. The models were showcasing clothing from stores in the centre…

Monthly highlights: September 2016

September was a busy month! It’s flown by but at the same time the 1st of September feels like so long ago. My highlights this month are varied to say the least and there’s a lot of them, so let’s get stuck in.

The Orange Tree Derby launch night

Alcohol isn’t generally my thing. Unless it’s a Malibu and orange juice, then it’s 100% my thing. However when I received an invitation to The Orange Tree launch night in Derby I thought well why not? I brought my boyfriend Jordan along and we got into town nice and early. Early enough, in fact, that we had time for pizza and curly fries (classy, I know). The event was due to start at 7pm so we got there near enough bang on time. There wasn’t many people around and the door was closed so at first we were kinda confused. Turns out there were…

intu Derby student night: my experience and my bargains!

I’ve been working full time for a little over a year now, and I mourn my old student life almost everyday. Not because I enjoyed school or college. In fact, that couldn’t be further from the truth. I miss being a student because they get some awesome discounts. So when I was invited along to the intu Derby student night I jumped at the chance! I do get the odd 10% off here and there with my NUS Apprentice card. However the brands at intu Derby student night were offering up to 50% discounts! And that, my friends, is music to my…

My first charity shop shopping spree at LOROS

I’m gonna be honest, I’ve never really been into charity shop shopping. I used to pop into one or two every now and then but I could never find anything decent. I couldn’t be bothered to trawl through the rubbish to find the hidden gems that I’d heard so much about. My friend Charlotte (from Discovering Charlotte and Shoestring Chic) absolutely loves charity shops. So a couple of weeks ago she introduced me and Kirstie (from Behind the Scent) to the world of charity shop shopping. LOROS have 28 shops across Leicestershire and Rutland but Charlotte showed us round the store on…
