Believing that style has no size, East Midlands lifestyle blogger Sugar Darling shops fashion and beauty at intu Derby – visiting The Body Shop, New Look, MAC, M&S and spent the evening with her husband at Showcase Cinema De Lux.
“I'm really excited to be working on the Welcome to our World campaign with intu Derby over the next few weeks to share why the centre isn't only a great place to get kitted out with the season's top fashion trends, but somewhere you can spend a whole day enjoying a great choice of restaurants and seeing the latest movies at the Showcase Cinema De Lux.
Make sure you check out my website and Instagram at www.sugar-darling.com to see what autumn/winter 2018 fashion trends I picked up at the centre, as well as how you can recreate some of the catwalk's hottest make up looks and a few other stylish surprises!”
It's often really hard to go clothes shopping as a plus size person and not only have one or two shops to choose from, but I love going to intu Derby as I know that there are lots of places for me to buy new outfits. I can (and have) spent full days at the centre putting together the perfect look.
For great value and trend led fashion, New Look and H&M are always great choices and you can shop their curve sections on the first floor of both of their stores. The leopard print dress in the photo is just £22.99.

If you're obsessed with looking at the catwalks each season but it's not just the clothes that interest you, but the makeup too. I love that there are so many beauty options at intu Derby and during my trip I not only grabbed a bunch of lovely make up items at MAC, but I had a skin consultation at The Body Shop and got a whole new skincare routine too. Above are various make up items from The Body Shop.
It may be stereotypical but I'm a girl that loves collecting shoes - it just so happens that trainers are my favourite! I know I can always find the latest styles at Office and I even found these gorgeous limited edition Vans on this visit - the colour and platform sole are both winners for me. These Vans Kmv Geranium pink exclusives are £59.99.

When you're shopping as hard as we were you need a break to refuel at some point, so we headed to Five Guys for a delicious lunch. We both love burgers and the ones at Five Guys are some of our favourites, even better than some of the ones we had in America. The milkshakes and fries are pretty amazing too!

To finish off our day at intu Derby, we dropped our shopping bags off at the car and then headed to the Showcase Cinema De Lux to watch a movie and enjoy an ice cream dessert. We love the extra comfy seats and treats you get when you go to the Directors Lounge, but even the standard seats are great and the sound and vision quality is always amazing - it was the perfect end to a fun filled date day.
