Ginger Mum Column: Holiday preparations begin

Local lifestyle blogger Ginger Mum has been on a shopping spree to get her family sorted for their days of fun and sun…

Happy Easter everyone! What a busy month April is, with a lengthy break from school ahead (again already!) and egg hunts organised left, right and centre.

We are off to Turkey for hopefully gloriously sunny days just for some sea, sun and fun so I’ve been round MK on a bit of a spree because the kids seem to have grown out of absolutely everything since last year.

So last week I went to Primark at MK1 and filled a trolley so I’m pretty much sorted between there, River Island, Next and H&M!

I usually rock up two days before hols and try to do a mad dash, only to find only random sizes in stock, but at the moment the shelves are choc full!

Did you know the spanking new Primark lands at centre:mk on the 16th of this month?

How exciting. It’s three storeys high – can you even imagine? See you there on opening day!

April is another exciting month for our fabulous theatre, with Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat landing from the 9th-13th and I hear there are still a limited number of tickets left.

I had to update my own wardrobe a bit and my first pick was this darling blouse from Zara and some culottes to go with it.

The whole outfit came to £59.99 and I know I will get so much wear from it. Nodding to the trends of nude, polka dots and bows, it’s such a ladylike combination.

Another item I snapped up was a dress from H&M which is great over leggings until the sun comes out and you are brave enough to get your pins out – hopefully this summer all my hard work at David Lloyd MK will finally pay off and I will be happy to be in shorts finally!

Who do you follow on Instagram? Apart from me hopefully of course @gingermumstyle. My top tips this month are @bodyposipanda and @tewrussellbrand for positivity, local queens @candicebrathwaite, @gailemms, @southwoodliving and I really do love @kentomkinsmcdkmk for his amazing photography – go give them a follow!

Have a great Easter everyone and I’ll see you in May!
