I’ve just realised the title of this post sounds much like Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them; unintentional Harry Potter pun. That being said, this vintage 70’s beaut is something of a fantastic beast.
Intu centres are springing up all over the country, from Intu Trafford to Intu Lakeside. Here in Staffordshire, we have Intu Potteries. It has transformed what was becoming a run-down shopping centre into a vibrant shopping hotspot, cinema and dining plaza.
Four years ago if I’d have gone shopping with my mum and she picked up anything frilly, sequined or heaven forbid floral, she’d be met with an ‘ugh, mum for God’s sake… do you know me at all.’
As it turns out, she knew me very bloody well; mum knew 20-year-old-me.
People are always amazed at the bargains I manage to bag, be it a £3.50 Topshop jacket in a charity shop, or three dresses for 49p on Boohoo. How do I do it? To be honest, on a general level, I’m not too sure.

One thing I love is clothes, but I hate shopping. I despise it. I can’t think of anything worse than traipsing round boiling hot shops with people getting in my way whilst I’m looking at a playsuit wondering if I can squeeze into a six because it’s in the sale. My solution? Get a personal shopper.
