Ginger Mum column: Leisure, pleasure and nature

Local lifestyle blogger Ginger Mum talks about her new shopping find, the latest MK fashion show and the month of love for couples.

Welcome to February everyone, a nippy little month, full of pre-spring promise and romance.

There is SO much going on, lots popping up around our area and beyond so first off, let’s talk about a new shopping find I’ve discovered this year.

Rushden Lakes, a short drive away in Northamptonshire, is a fantastic new development which combines leisure, pleasure and nature all at once.

Set against a stunning watery backdrop of its namesake, Rushden Lakes is a destination day out with something for everyone.

I went there during the week and had such a relaxing day out with my best friend Andrea, a right good girlie catch up, a fantastic lunch at their huge big shiny House of Fraser store and a bit of a Primark haul in their brand spanking new enormous shop too.

With so many of our high street favourites sprinkled with designer gems, plus a cinema complex and even more restaurants on the way, it really is a great new place to take the family.

There’s an in-depth look at it over on my blog, please do go and have a gander!

Over the last couple of years, Fashion Show MK has been gathering momentum, with the last one creating such a buzz and even Love Island’s Olivia Buckland rocking the catwalk.

Showcasing both established and up-andcoming designers, it’s a fab night out as well as a great opportunity to support local talent.

The next one is in April and the tickets go like hot cakes so grab yours while you can by visiting and, if you are really quick, you might even find a few of the highly sought after VIP tickets still available.

I couldn’t leave you without mentioning the month of love.

Valentine’s Day is such a huge deal these days with hearts bulging at you from every shop front and the price of red roses sky-rocketing.

If you want to keep it simple this year, Krispy Kreme are doing a cute bespoke box of sweet delights which are cute as buttons and easy on the wallet!

Au revoir until March guys but remember you can follow my daily shenanigans over on Instagram @gingermumstyle.
