Intu Metro Centre Blogger Night #GiftGuide

Last week I was invited along to Intu Metro Centre in Gateshead for an exclusive blogger evening hosted by the Marketing team of the mall. Upon arrival, we were greeted with prosecco and a spread of Lebanese food from Fattoush Lounge which is a new restaurant in the Yellow Mall. It was great to catch up with bloggers from across the North East as well as meet some new faces, it’s always refreshing to meet like-minded girls that get the industry! 

Metro Centre had hired the Intu train for the night to give us a tour around the mall to showcase all the new stores that Metro has to offer. This was a unique way to get around the mall which as an adult I never thought I’d do ha! We were definitely catching everyone’s attention as it was late night shopping in the centre, so the place was pretty busy. It’s not every day you see 8 fully grown women riding around metro on a train! 
We started by visiting Hotel Chocolat who came out to the train with a goodie bag and ice-cream, I definitely felt like a celebrity at this point! The second stop was the Jack Wills pop up store which was full of Christmas gifts and the classic Jack Wills style hoodies. (permanent store will be opening in December).  The third shop was the G-STAR RAW store which recently opened and was full of a range of sustainable denim! We even got a G-STAR RAW goodie bag. The fourth stop on our tour was the Oxygen bar and Clarin's massage station where we were treated to a hand massage and an energy boost from flavoured oxygen, something I’ve now ticketed off my bucket list, I’ve seen them at festivals before but never had a chance to go on one. Fifth stop around the metro was a visit to the new Couture Club shop in the Red mall which has recently opened. It was great to see a store that was founded on Instagram, really shows the power of social media and the store itself was really impressive!  

The sixth and my favourite stop on the trip was the new Victoria Secret and PINK store which opened last month to the excitement of most girls across the North East! The store did not disappoint, the lovely ladies from VS also let us pick any bra from their collections to take home of course. I picked a gorgeous cream lace bra from the Fantasy collection
 The final stop on our tour was a trip to the newly moved QUIZ Clothing store where they kindly gifted us a £40 voucher to spend in store on the night. I picked out a black dotty jumpsuit which I’ll definitely be wearing for a Christmas party.
