Spring arrives at Northland!

You might remember that I popped out to Northland in autumn to experience what they had on offer if you couldn’t make it to the fashion festival in the city.

Well, spring is here and that means all things racing, floral and shopping of course. There are two new pop up lounges where you can take a break while you’re on the hunt for that perfect dress or new shoes and they’re pretty special I must say.
