Once upon a time, The Lexicon, Bracknell invited blogger Victoria Jane Morris to take a whistle stop tour of the fabulous new shopping centre, just 10 minutes from her home. She brought her lovely mum along too. Read on to see what they got up to…
First stop, breakfast
There’s such a lovely atmosphere at The Lexicon. It’s clean, bright and well laid out. There’s a huge M&S and an H&M, but our first stop has to be Pret a Manger for a cappuccino and a pain au raisin.
Try it, love it, buy it
Most of my and Mum’s favourite shops are here. It has everything you could possibly need, and in quite an intimate setting. Topshop is always worth a look – I found a really pretty blouse to wear with my favourite jeans. Then we headed to Office to look for spring summer sneakers. They’ve got a great range of Converse, but it’s hard to beat simple black or white.
A gift for the kids
Popped into Waterstones to get something for the kids. Their children’s department is such a colourful place to be and I love it that my boys love reading. Frank Cottrell Boyce is great for ages 8 – 12.
Lunch at Fuego
There are a vast amount of restaurants to choose from at The Lexicon. Wagamama is one of my absolute favourites, but this time, Mum and I are treating ourselves to lunch at Fuego on the top floor at Fenwick. Their pizzas are amazing. In the summer, you can eat out on the roof terrace here, which is always fun. They do pretty good cocktails too.
Finding fabulous things in Fenwick
Fenwick has ALL the brands I adore. I tried the most beautiful pink Max Mara coat, had a hand massage at Jo Malone, and explored Charlotte Tilbury, Tom Ford and Nars. My treat for the day was a lovely Jo Malone body lotion.
Fun for the family
It’s always lovely to have a girls day out with my mum, and the great thing about The Lexicon is that it’s good for the kids as well. There’s always plenty for them to do, so they won’t get bored.
I’m lucky to have all of this just 10 minutes away, but even if you live a bit further away, I’d say The Lexicon Bracknell is definitely worth a visit.
