Intu Jazz and Gin Event!

This post should have been up by now, however, due to getting bitten by a cat at work and ending up in the hospital with a load of medication it’s been delayed!

This is a post about what has to be my favourite event that the lovely ladies at Intu Victoria Centre has thrown for us bloggers (they really do spoil us rotten!)  We were met at the Nottingham Street Food Club by the fantastic Sammy and her wonderful team (situated in the upper mall) and lead inside.  I’ve been to the venue before a few times and absolutely love the vast variety of food available!

I have to admit, before the event, I had stalked the facebook and Instagram page to see which vendors were going to be available.  I was immediately drawn to the Clean Cut Kitchen as being on a strict IIFYM diet it was fantastic to have the breakdown available.

We had our own bar and bartender, as well as a large table reserved for the evening!  The gin menu featured a vast variety of different Gins, and controversially against all the popular opinions at the moment – I don’t like Gin!

The food from the Clean Cut Kitchen offered a healthy alternative to fast food, they had “clean” cheat meals which were completely customisable with all different options for different dietary requirements from vegan to gluten free!

The Jazz musicians were a fantastic background to the evening and really rounded the evening off.  I’d like to say a massive thank you to both Intu Victoria Centre for the fantastic goodie bags filled with amazing goodies and the Nottingham Street Food Club for the wonderful food and hospitality!  I had such an amazing evening with unbeatable company.

Swatch #Yourmove Event

swatch event

I’m a massive fan of Swatch watches and when they invited me to attend their Nottingham bloggers event, I jumped at the chance.

Swatch has released a new line called the “Skin” watches, these are designed to be so thin and light that it’s like there isn’t a watch there at all.  The collection itself is stunning, with different styles and material which follow all of the current trends, along with a few statement, and timeless pieces.

We were greeted in the store with smoothies and healthy snacks which went down well as I had come straight from work.  I had a lovely strawberry smoothie which was served in a glass mason cup.

After the snacks, we had the opportunity to browse the new collection and pick a watch to take home!  I picked the Skin “Skin” watch – a pinky nude and rose gold watch which is bang on trend and gorgeous!

As with all the Swatch watches, the Skin range is totally water resistant!  This is key in my line of work as there are many different fluids that can go wrong in Veterinary Nursing!

After this, we headed to the second part of the evening – a dance class!  This was based at Signature Dance Studios in Nottingham not too far from the Theatre Royal.  The instructor taught us a dance, he was very patient with us as some of us (ok me.) took longer to grasp the moves – which if you know me in person, I am VERY uncoordinated and quite rhythmically challenged.  I had a great time and felt like I had an excellent workout after this.

A massive thank you to Swatch and the whole of the team for this fantastic event!
