NottsShop: July 2019

8 July 19 words: Anna Murphy

Ah sweet, sweet July. There's something about this month that still makes you think that you're breaking up for the summer even though summer holidays were quite a few years ago for most of us... But, however you're planning on spending the next thirty days or so, here are a few little rays of metaphorical sunshine that will hopefully match the actual sunshine that we'll get...right?

Fashion Event: @Style.Swap.Events
Got some pretty nice garms that you're just not too bothered about anymore? I know I have. Don't leave them languishing at the back of your wardrobe - swap 'em. Style Swap Events offer the chance to offload some of your nice (read: 'not scuzzy' - no-one wants your holey old joggers) clothes and swap them for something else that you'll love even more. It's good for your wardrobe and it's great for the environment - what's not to love? 

Keep an eye out on their Instagram page for more details of their next event.

Notts-based Blogger: @HollyOfAllTrades
Don't let the South African accent fool you - this girl's Nottingham knowledge is as good as it gets. Holly's feed is full of body positivity, light sarcasm and being an all-round bad ass. Make sure you follow her to get all the best fashion, beauty and interior inspo - or just follow her for the best dirty laugh this side of the equator. Basically, follow her for the literal lolz.

Notts-based Brand: Cordelia Hearts 
This is a little bit sneaky of me as Jenn, aka Cordelia Hearts, is technically one of Notts' best bloggers... BUT did you know that she also has a slogan t-shirt side hustle that's beloved by Nottingham qween herself, Vicky McClure? Amazing quality, personalised designs and supporting a small local business: for that reason, I'm in. 

Have a look at her website here.

New Discovery: Another? Wine Bar
I'm always on the hunt for a sneaky little sun trap, especially when it's prime beer garden season. Another? might be a top date night destination (if you haven't already visited their self-serve wine bar in Trinity Square, then, quite frankly, where have you been?) but the addition of their amazing garden is perfect for après (whether that's après shopping, après work or just après 3pm...)
