Ginger Mum Column: Escape to De Cuba for a celebración

Our resident lifestyle blogger Amanda, aka Ginger Mum, talks about her night out at MK hotspots and a shopping tip for travel…

Where to go on a girls’ night out in Milton Keynes?

Well, recently, my best friend and I had a corker. We headed to Marco’s – the New York Italian restaurant next to The Holiday Inn in Central MK – for a touch of celebrity chef speciality to start our night off in style.

The Lanson flowed, the food was en pointe, and we got to have a right good catch up, which as we all know is the perfect start to any good girlie outing.

We both opted for bruschetta and it did not disappoint. It had a juicy little tang to it which was unique and incredibly tasty.

Followed by steak, well, we couldn’t resist. I always get raised eyebrows when I request well done but the attentive staff spared my blushes and it was seared to perfection.

Despite being stuffed, the desserts sounded mouth-watering so we plumped to share an apple crumble because we are old school.

After rolling out of there we grabbed a cab to Revolucion De Cuba for a few tipples, not realising we would be there til closing time.

If you haven’t been lately, it’s a must! Brilliant DJ, freestyle dancers, showgirls in Las Vegas style costumes and a firecracker limbo with shots for forfeits, what’s not to love? What a night, I highly recommend it!

Now my shopping tip for this month is a little gem I love. It’s great for travelling, holds all your make up without the hassle of having to squeeze everything in and empty it all out when looking for your fave mascara.

It’s a pouch that opens flat and simply pulls closed, keeping everything neat and tidy but easily accessible. It’s the brainchild of celebrity makeup artist to the Loose Women amongst many others.
