#DuvetDining with TK Maxx

I adore TK Maxx. However, I didn't always. I remember a few years ago I used to get really overwhelmed by all of the stuff they sold but now I have my system of going through my favourite stores (Boucher Road and Newtownabbey FYI), down to a tee. You learn where your favourite things are kept so in my case, I always head to the underwear, the handbags and the homeware. Plus, their website is really great, especially if you love the gold label higher end designer items.

I've recently fallen in love with the homewares they sell as I slowly start to build up stuff for my own house (that I have yet to buy....!). I've recently picked up great Jamie Oliver Cutlery, a gin scented candle, Hotel Collection bed linen and some unique platter pieces. I was delighted to be invited to a TK Maxx event in Belfast that celebrated the "Ridiculous Possibilities" that the stores offer - I mean where else could you go in and buy pasta, some knickers and a designer handbag? 

TK Maxx teamed up the ever so stylish chef Gizzi Erskine for a 7 course taste fest of crazy combos and flavours, all served inside a tent of TK Maxx duvets and pillows. It was a unique experience to eat on the floor and I wanted to take home so many of the fab duvets I was surrounded by. The food was crazy and amazing all at the same time. The cold clear tomato soup that we started off with was served in a tea pot and it was weirdly tasty! However the stand out of the night for me was the Crispy Tuna Rice - it was so moreish! 

Overall, a fabulous evening that served as a fun reminder of all that TK Maxx has to offer!

Many thanks to the team at TK Maxx for the invite.
