Ginger Mum Column: Sparkle in sequins this Xmas

Local lifestyle blogger Ginger Mum talks about her preparations for the big day and how to stand out at your Christmas party…

Merry Christmas everyone!

I find it hard to get my head around the fact we are back in sparkly season again already but it’s here and it’s time to prep for the big day. Dinner, gifts, snacky food, nibbles and drinks – it’s all on the list!

I’ve done a massive gift shopping run around MK and it’s all in my latest post on the blog and I think I nailed it!

Food-wise, I go for a mixture of Aldi, Tesco and a wee sprinkling of M&S!

I couldn’t miss out talking about the biggest thing on the kids’ agenda in December – Santa’s Grotto – centre:mk has pulled it outta the bag this year. The main man is already in situ (who saw that awesome arrival and parade?)

This year’s bookable sessions, with provision for children who require sign language or smaller groups with subdued lighting for young ones who need a more relaxed environment, they have everyone covered.

It’s sparkle central this month and today I picked up a sequin skirt from M&S, a snip at £45. Teaming it with a furry knit v-neck for day, translates perfectly into night with a sleek top and statement jewellery for that party look.

As always, MK Theatre is the gift that keeps on giving with this year’s panto, starring family favourite, none other than Shane Ritchie, who is strutting his stuff in Robin Hood.

I always think a great gift idea is vouchers for the theatre and with good reason, as in 2019 we have such corkers as Les Mis and Jason Manford to look forward to.

As a family we love it there and can’t wait to see the upcoming shows. I was trying on furry hats in River Island at centre:mk today, loads to choose from but only a select few blingy enough for me. What do you think?

So guys I just wanted to thank you all for the comments and direct messages I get via here, the love is real! I love getting to know you all.

Please don’t hesitate to come up for a chat if we cross paths in MK. Happy Christmas dinner shopping by the way – good luck with that – Merry Christmas Milton Keynes, see you next year!
