SCROLL through for her pics...
[a href="http://www.beatnikemporium.co.uk/%20" target="_blank">Beatnik Emporium[/a] - One of Southampton's most quirky vintage shops - a great place for a rummage. Ideal for fancy dress as well as some classic vintage pieces - the perfect end to a day's shopping on the highstreet this weekend.
Coffee and cake - One thing that's great about Southampton, Bournemouth and the surrounding area, is how easily you can escape outside the cities. There's an abundance of villages to explore, and to grab a coffe and cake. I visited Romsey this weekend but there are plenty more!
[a href="http://www.thearthousesouthampton.co.uk/" target="_blank">The Art House Gallery Cafe[/a] - A super cute community run cafe, right in the heart of Southampton. Full of gorgeous cakes and coffees, and tons of awesome events. It's the ideal place to chill out after hitting the shops.
[a href="/weblogEntries/%20http:/www.mangothai.co.uk/" target="_blank">Mango [/a]Restaurant - There are two Mango's in Southampton which serve amazing Thai tapas with an awesome bar attached. One is in right in the middle of Students-ville and the other in the city centre. Something a bit different for a special meal!
Weekend outfit - And to finish off, here's what I wore for a spot of shopping and lunching this weekend! An oversized baggy tea, large tote bag and a comfy scarf.
