As part of the #smart21 campaign I've teamed up with them to give you all a little city guide of my hometown, Bristol- another city in which you can take part in their competition

These are just a few of my favorite hot-spots and things to do if you're in Bristol. First up, shopping. Bristol is actually great for shopping, whether it's in the little boutiques on Park Street and in Clifton or the huge shopping centers you're spoiled for choice. I spend most of my shopping time in Cabot Circus, right in the center of the city. It has every high street store you need, and if that's not enough across the road is Quakers Frias and you've got Harvey Nicholls, Allsaints, Reiss etc along with a couple of lovely restaurants and cafes.


A short walk from Cabot Circus is Bristol's harbourside. Along with the buzz of many restaurants and bars is an exhibition center, the M Shed. There's always something great to see there- when I last went it was The National Gallery's portrait prize which featured some amazing pieces.


Now with all that shopping and gallery hopping, you're going to be in need of a good lunch, right? My absolute favorite place to eat is Aqua Italia. I've missed it so much living in London (you can only find them in Bristol and Bath), I used to go there weekly with my girlfriends. The food is always topnotch, my personal recommendation is the Lobster Ravioli or Tuna steak salad.




If you're looking for a good pamper, head to I Candy Beauty & Boutique, located in the heart of the city. Browse their eclectic range of gifts and garments then head upstairs and choose from their large range of beauty treatments, I always go for the Guinot Hydradermie facial!


Next up, The Avon Gorge Hotel and White Lion bar. In the garden you can look right over Bristol suspension bridge and into the estuary and clifftops. It's a real hidden gem, separating the busy city to such a vast and beautiful landscape. I usually pop in here for afternoon tea in the Hotel's cafe or for a drink in the white lion pub after a long day at work.


Now no city guide would be complete without a cocktail stop. With a gorgeous menu of each and every exotic cocktail you can think of, Browns is the place to be. My fave if the Passionfruit Daiquiri, and Sunday to Thursday they're half price- what more could a girl want?! 

I hope you enjoyed my little guide to Bristol, do any of you live there too? Where are your favorite spots?
