I pride myself on finishing my Christmas shopping before December.
That way, I can spend a cosy Sunday watching The Holiday whilst wrapping up everyone’s presents with the fairy lights glistening in the background.
Cheshire Oaks has been a place in which I’ve been going to since I was a little girl; I’d be all wrapped up in my pram, being pushed in and out of the shops and now, it’s kinda cool that I’m still returning every few months but this time, I’m driving myself there.
Not a lot of people realise that beside Cheshire Oaks is another shopping park called Coliseum and this is home to lots of fantastic high street brands such as New Look, Debenhams, Sports Direct, Next, Superdrug and H&M.
Full Disclaimer: I was invited to do some Christmas shopping by the team at Coliseum with some vouchers in which they gifted me. In return, I am sharing this blog post with you all as well as a few Instagram Stories.
We visited on a Sunday (11am-5pm) and with 1,200 free parking spaces, we had no trouble finding anywhere to park.
Having the Coliseum Shopping Park next door to Cheshire Oaks is a genius idea – I personally love high street fashion whereas the Mr will always have a nosy in Ralph Lauren for any discounts that they may have (they usually do!), but you also have the option to pop into Starbucks or Costa for a quick pit-stop before, during or after your shopping trip.
Upon our visit, I was kindly gifted a voucher for New Look and a voucher for Debenhams which are two of my favourite shops at the moment and seeing as I’ve completed all my Christmas shopping, I decided to treat myself – mainly because it’s my birthday on Boxing Day, mainly because I need new clothes from loosing so much weight but mainly as a well-done-for-surviving-the-horror-of-this-year.
So what did I buy?
I also picked up another initial mug because a) you can never have too many and b) they look great for a quick Instagram photo.
From Debenhams, I was really stuck for choice but in the end, I picked up a real variety of items: a selection of Costa syrups, a 3D world puzzle, some Christmas chocolates and a new Benefit Roller Lash mascara.
I would highly recommend a visit to the Coliseum Shopping Park as there is something for everyone during any time of the year and once you’ve shopped along the high street stores, there’s always plenty more next door in Cheshire Oaks.
