When you put bloggers, food, cocktails and shopping together, you get a massive amount of excitement. Meadowhall kindly invited a few of us Sheffield bloggers to sample the goods of their Ladies Night – an annual shopping event especially for us ladies. The malls were decked with offers, massages, gin experiences, beauty treatments, free pic n mix and more! There was a real buzz in the atmosphere as a busy Meadowhall remained extremely busy until 9pm. If anyone else is like me, you just expect shops to shut at 5pm, so it felt a treat to be able to carry on shopping away until the night. A little rebellious for a school night?!
While the night was primarily about the shopping, it was CRUCIAL for us to have cocktails and food…because you need fuel to shop, right?! Our night started in Giraffe for complimentary cocktails, there was one for everyone. While some were Prosecco infused, others were heavy on the gin and rum. It was easy to forget they were actually alcoholic as they tasted incredibly fruity and delicious. To compliment the drinks, we were served plates of Gyoza, squid, nachos and chorizo by the incredibly prompt and welcoming staff. I can appreciate serving a group of bloggers could be challenging – a lot of photo taking, giggling and talking.
It wasn’t long before we were then guided to Tapas Revolution for MORE drinks and MORE food. Wow. It’s safe to say I WASN’T trying on clothes after all of these treats! At least makeup doesn’t have a dress size!
I LOVE tapas, and was so happy to hear that we would be sampling the restaurants delicious Spanish dishes. We were given a mixture of tapas dishes, from Potato tortilla, paella, prawns and more. I’m afraid I can’t remember everything we ate, and this definitely isn’t down to the copious amounts of cocktails and sangria.
After being filled up to the brim with delicious foods and drinks, we all visited the beauty hall before going our own ways. Myself and Billie visited the Disney store as we couldn’t quite contain our excitement when we saw they had a sale on.
Overall, it was such a lovely night with some fantastic company. The organisation was flawless and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Thank you so much Meadowhall! See you next year!
