Metro Centre Shopping Haul

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you all had a fab weekend, i certainly did. My student loan came through on Friday… a couple of days earlier than expected and what better way to treat myself than to go to the Metro Centre?! If anyone’s not familiar with this, its a HUGE shopping center in the outskirts of Newcastle. You have every shop imaginable under one roof. They have a collection of high street shops, designer brands and cute little stalls. I’ve been going there for years and on Saturday i decided to go for some spring treats. Its crazy that no matter how much you plan it out, you always end up buying more than you expected.

I guess you could say my treats are mixture of bargains and splashing out on my student loan. Lately you may of noticed im loving TKmaxx lately for their beauty buys and i was impressed with the collection in the metro centre, as you can imagine the shop is a lot larger than most ones in our high streets, so the rows of products was heaven for me… And again New Look have pulled it out of the bag for cheap pretty clothes, i love lime and the jacket/blazer is just perfect. I wore it yesterday for Easter Sunday with a black lace dress and black gladiators from Primark (images are on instagram: Bethdeanxo).

And what better way to round the shopping day off than a all you can eat Chinese buffet! If you ever go to the metro centre or want to go, its a must to try this place. Its situated near a quiet area of the centre where the ‘food mall’ is. They have 4 rows of Chinese food to chose from.

And to end the weekend i went to an open marquee for Easter Sunday. How did you all spend your Easter Bank Holiday weekend?

      Its even prettier in person! Yeah i was like that too, i considered getting the thinner version that’s cheaper but for the price different i thought why not? Its going to last a lifetime hopefully so if you think of it like that, its 100% worth it 🙂 xx
