When Grazia magazine got in touch & asked me if I’d like to be the Grazia Local Ambassador for Leicester, I pretty much bit their hand off! I love my little city & it was so nice to be able to tell the girls at Grazia about all of the amazing places we have here & work alongside them compiling the feature. I even have a little column!

The idea of the regional specials are to give readers the inside scoop on the best places to go, things to do & best kept secrets from local ‘girls about town’. This time the special is focusing on the Midlands including Leicester, Loughborough, Nottingham, Birmingham & Warwick, and if you live in one of these areas you can get this weeks copy (out today!) for just £1!

There are also a host of special offers & discounts from the places mentioned in the top 10 for each city, my favourites for Leicester being 15% off your bar bill at Maiyango, which makes the best & most inventive cocktails in the city, 20% off at both Pink Pigeon & Dolly Mix Vintage, plus coffee & a cake for £3.50 at The Exchange!

I really enjoyed helping to put this feature together, and I’m looking forward to working on more pieces in the future too. There’s just something extra special about seeing your work (& face!) in print that makes it feel even more rewarding. I’ve also done a ‘day in the life’ type diary post for Grazia Daily to go along with this, so I’ll be posting that too once it’s live!
