I wanted a day shopping so that I could get all those little bits that I can't get (or find) in the USA. Also, I have trouble with clothes in California so I wanted to get some outfits to take home with me. My problem with shopping in California is that there are too many shops (I am not a good shopper) and I find the sizing a little awkward (I have a large chest!). In the UK, I know which shops have clothes that fit me and what size I am.
So off we went on Day 3 (after an obligatory bacon sandwich of course) to Meadowhall, a large UK shopping mall on the outskirts of Sheffield, about 30 minutes drive from my mums house.
We got a little lost on the way and I kept stalling the car (forgetting about gear changes!) but we made it. We had already planned to meet my step brother for lunch so we planned which shops to go to and set off. Rich had to get a coffee first before he would do anything...
|Costa Coffee with a swirly heart|
|Spotty top from Next|
|Decleor from House of Fraser with lots of freebies!|
|Beautiful hummingbird dress from Fat Face|
|Another beautiful dress from Debenhams (Mantaray)|
|Lunch with my step brother Brendan and his stunning girlfriend Mel (how gorgeous is she!)|
|Funky menu at Carluccios - I'm always on the lookout for nice design|
|Cute Nails Inc set from Boots (bargain price of £22), all lovely colours too....well mostly, I'm not sure about orange?|
In the evening, we had a Chinese takeaway at my mums, which I'm not keen on except for crispy duck...yummy! (you don't get duck at Chinese restaurants in California for some reason?).
Do you like Chinese food?
