I am your typical foodie, obsessed with food, always thinking about my next meal and always trying to be healthy and then being all like yeah this burger/pizza/insert all the food here is immense. So when I was recently given the opportunity to visit a brand new eatery at the Intu Lakeside food court I obviously couldn’t refuse. Stampede* is essentially a burger bar but what they offer in terms of food and quality makes them a cut above the rest! Firstly, their set up in the food hall is pretty special. From the bull made from metal scrap parts to the neon pink signage, you definitely can’t miss them!  Cute jars of pork scratchings on the counter Their brilliant menu consists of burgers, ribs and wings along with a pretty amazing sides selection!

I recently got the opportunity to attend an exciting event at Intu Lakeside.  Their ‘Everyone’s Invited’ event consisted of a whole weekend of fun and entertainment.  Some of the Essex Bloggers and I got to go along and experience some VIP treatment.

Hi lovelies! Happy Sunday! As you may know, yesterday I went shopping with some girlfriends. We went to Lakeside which is a shopping centre (or mall for those of you in the US!) In Essex.

(Id like a long sleeve midi dress in white) So I didnt really end up buying much but thought id share what I did get. We went to Primark which is a must on any shopping trip. I should mention now that I am a little bit obsessed with pyjamas! I love them! If I could wear them out in public I would!… View Post
