Ginger Mum Column: Style secrets and MK insider news

Our resident lifestyle blogger Amanda, aka Ginger Mum, has got some exciting gossip, tasty reveals and new business beginnings this month…

Well, August is a month choc-full of newness here in MK, exciting stuff!

First off, I have a little bit of insider MK gossip for you all! There’s going to be a new bar in town as of next month, situated in The Hub.

I can’t say too much but trust me, it will be Instafabulous, chic as hell and a gin palace. I’d tell you more but I’d have to kill you so watch this space for the big reveal next issue!

On the 16th I have the pleasure of opening the new John Lewis Style Studio in centre:mk and I can’t wait!

The style studio offers an express styling service, be it a last minute outfit for that all important invitation or a wardrobe overhaul with a ready-made John Lewis friend to help you style your best self.

They have five trained stylists – one of which is Celebrate:MK’s very own NancyMK – and the best part is, the service is completely free of charge, in addition to their five bookable services.

Hope to see some of you there on the 16th!

And my final reveal is, there will be a new Wagamama in town as of 19th August. New to the great line-up already at MK1, my personal favourite, Wagamama, will be a very welcome addition to the old Frankie & Benny’s space so if you are doing your shopping there or going to the Odeon, there is no need to leave there and head to one of the other Wagas anymore.

Check out their website for all the opening details.

This month’s fave find is this pretty H&M dress, not a bad buy for £34.99 – really easy wear, easy care for this holiday month. It washes up easy, dries like a ribbon and hides a multitude. Winner!

Until next time guys, enjoy the sunshine!
