As a busy mum and farmer’s wife, it can be months at a time between shopping trips-especially to cities where you get more choice than smaller towns.
It often means that when I do head into Manchester or the Trafford Centre, I try and think of everything I am going to need for the months ahead.
It seems my trips into town maybe totally in the past now though because I have recently discovered The Hut.
The Hut is a leading luxury online department store bringing fashion, homeware, beauty, and lifestyle products to your door, whilst shopping from the comfort of your own home.
Last weekend, I took the children into Manchester for a lovely blogger event at the very cool Artisan bar in Spinningfields to take a peek at some of the things on offer at The Hut and I was pleasantly surprised.
Boo and I tasted the high life for a change with prosecco on arrival which she really wanted but I obviously palmed her off with the equally delicious juices and flavoured waters on offer.
Both children honed in on the toys from their ultimate favourite, Sooty to Lego and some In the Night Garden toys which delighted G.
While the played, I got to sample some beautiful skincare, drool over the Vivienne Westwood pumps (both for adults and children)…
… and then remind myself that it should really have been the Hunter wellies that I should have been lusting after but even farmer’s wives can dream.
It seems my love of all things footwear has somehow rubbed off on my daughter.
As well as my son.
I have been longing for a pair of Ray Bans for ages and finally got to try some on.
After stalking their website every day since I got home, it is brilliant that all of my favourite premium products are available from one retailer. From St Tropez tanning products to make up and shampoos. Not to mention the beautiful handbags, purses and clothing. There are toys, children’s wear, menswear and lovely home brands to tempt you too.
I am totally in love with an Aspinal of London, Orange Saddlebag but for now, I think I will be saving up for the Vivienne Westwood Melissa ballet flats. They are to die for.
We had a lovely lunch, caught up with some lovely bloggers and had a nice little trip to the city.
It’s just a pity we won’t need to go again as I will be able to purchase everything online from The Hut.
