NottsShop: April 2019

16 April 19 words: Anna Murphy

Hello! Welcome to the first in a monthly series on the best fashiony bits Notts has to offer. We're putting Nottingham under a style microscope and this month: we're focusing on “The Gram” with, like any good primary school story, a side eye to the who, what, where and when.

Fashion Event: Keishi Jewellery Spring Summer Launch
I was never a huge fan of maths, but my favourite equation has to be: free prosecco + gorgeous jewellery = Keishi Jewellery Launch. You've probably heard of Keishi, or perhaps of their sister brand, K.Fines – but if you haven't, they're an absolute treasure trove and located in the gorgeous Cobden Chambers. They're well worth a follow for a muse of the jewel-laden life, plus they hold jewellery nights every so often and publish the details on their Instagram page. There's no pushy sales chat either; it's just a fab chance to have a try on and a little tipple. Find Keishi in Cobden Chambers

Notts-based Blogger: Abigail, Mother of All Bargains
While I love following lots of accounts from people across the world, it can be a bit annoying when those smug Londoners (it's ok, I used to be one) post about amazing new stuff from high street brands and, for us Notts folk, it's not being sold online or in the Viccy Centre. However, not only is Abigail the nicest person possibly in the universe, she is also an absolute sales fiend. Her posts are all either based in Nottingham or online, so us East Midlanders can share in the good stuff. Sharing discount codes, snap sale info and all-round bargains, she's well worth a follow.

Notts-based Brand: Dorta
Located above Q hairdressing in Hockley, Bethan's studio is home to the most creative nails in Nottingham. Specialising in gel nail art, her designs are quirky, detailed and incredibly Insta-friendly. Her Sunday Morning newsletter is also a great place not only for design inspo, but also for podcasts, holiday destinations and bloggers that she enjoys following. She's always up for a good natter, too.

New Discovery: Effy 
Opened this month, Effy is a pink emporium. With pink walls, pink tiles, pink lattes (yes, really), it's a coffee shop that's like a bright flame for all those millennial moths. I mean, if you haven't taken a photo of their pink bevs, have you even had a coffee? 15 Houndsgate, NG1 7AA
