Silverburn Supper Safari Club
I don't think there can be a better way to spend a Friday afternoon than hanging out with some of my favourite fellow bloggers, literally eating and drinking our way around Silverburn Shopping Centre.
In case you haven't visited Silverburn recently, it has undergone HUGE development and, along with a new swanky Cineworld cinema, there are lots of new dining options for you to chose from including Carlucci's, Five Guys, Zizzi's and Patisserie Valerie.
We were invited along to enjoy a whistle-stop tour of some of the most popular restaurants to celebrate the Silverburn SummerDine campaign.
Our first stop was TGI Friday's for some liquid refreshments. Due to my aversion to public transport and the location of Silverburn, this little driver sadly had to skip the cocktails and I settled instead for a tasty, non-alcoholic (boo!) mocktail. My Raspberry it would be. It was so tasty and refreshing and the tuna was cooked to perfection. I should have asked him for tips about how to cook it actually as it always goes horribly wrong for me.
It was so delicious in fact that I couldn't bring myself to leave any so I somehow managed to clear my plate.
I don't know about you but I find eating quite exhausting so we headed across to Pret-a-Manger for a strong coffee to perk us up.... and okay, there may have been a little bit of cake as well.
Upon reflection, I should have perhaps gone for an elasticated waistband. Instead I went for a non-stretchy white leather skirt... What on earth was I thinking??
However, our lovely little social gathering seemed like a good excuse to christen my new 'Parisian' heels, £75 from Office.
And who doesn't love new shoes? Certainly not Paolo anyway...
If you're heading to Silverburn, don't forget to download the Silverburn Plus app for lots of offers.
Like 20% off at Yo Sushi!
Which, of course, means you have 20% more to spend on shoes!
Huge thanks to the gorgeous Claire, Sophie and Brad from McFrank for the lovely invitation and to Silverburn for having us along.
