Well hello you lovely lot!
This post is long overdue – It’s from a few months back when Rovi, Hayden and myself got invited to The London Designer Outlet in Wembley. The lovely team invited us down to check out the Shopping Center. We live in east London but the outlet is situated in North West London, all the way over the other side but surprisingly it didn’t take us long to get their by car at all.
RIGHT, let’s get on with the nitty gritty. Our challenge was to spend £100 in the gorgeous outdoor shopping center on outfits for Hayden. In all honesty I was thinking this is going to be a nightmare
1. I hate shopping unless I know what I want
2. Going in and out of shops it’s a nightmare in my eyes
3. I thought £100 wouldn’t get me very far especially with Rovi shopping with me
So here’s how the day panned out.
We got to the shopping center and waiting for the PR team to give us the instructions on what the day entailed.
You have 2 hours to spend £100 on outfits for Hayden within the London Designer Outlet shopping center.
So what did we manage to get? Quite a lot actually – I was really impressed with the prices.
My mum loves shopping like way too much and she is demanding that I take her here especially for Clarks & Marks and Spenser’s
Gap Long sleeve San Fran tee £2.99
GAP Vee neck T-shirts £2.99 each
H&M Jersey Fancy long-sleeved Top £5
Marks & Spenser’s Striped Hoody and Shorts outfit £10
Marks & Spenser’s Micky Mouse T-shirt £3.50
Trespass Mooki Boys Rainwear Jack £14.99
Marks & Spenser’s Fisherman Rain Mac £13
Nike Capri 3 Mid £17
H&M Knitwear Cardigan £3
Gap Hoody £11.99
Gap Tie t-shirt £4.99
H&M girls cat onesie £3 (I couldn’t resist it looked really comfortable and cute)
We were given £100 to spend and I made sure I found bargain’s, it wasn’t hard the prices were really good. I even had change left over.
Shopping took a lot out of us BUT we had time to enjoy the scenery – They have a children’s play area which is covered to protect the little ones from the elements but Hayden didn’t want to play … Thank goodness there were restaurants to chow down on, of course we popped into TGIs for a lush meal.
All in all we had a fab day out at London Designer Outlet. The venue is gorgeous its outdoors but either sides of the shops are sheltered so when it rains you’re covered. I bet it looks magical at Christmas time.
I terms of toddler clothes, there are loads of shop options but with any shop you go to there are more girls clothes to choose from so it was a bit difficult to choose clothes for a toddler boys. Older boys there are more choices and for girls of all ages there’s not an issue at all.
I’m really happy with my purchases and as you can see from above I had a pretty decent choice of products and we use on a regular basis bar the fisherman jacket as it is size 3/4 but I couldn’t resist. I wish we had something like this near us, I would be there at least once a week for sure.
Keep an eye out for my London Designer Outlet Haul video on YouTube if you want to see in my details the items I got for Hayden.
