WEEKENDER

Charlotte Staerck is purchasing manager at Handbag Clinic

Friday night gladrags or a night on the sofa?

Gladrags, definitely! Friday is my favourite night to go out for dinner and drinks. It’s the perfect way to start the weekend.

A super Saturday?
If the weather is right, it’d start with a morning walk with my French bulldog, Luigi, followed by lunch on the Quayside in the sun.

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?
I would go on a girls’ trip! As long as there are shops, a spa, good cocktail bars and I had my closest friends with me, I would go anywhere. Nothing beats a good girly trip!

Memorable mini-break?
Italy is my favourite place – I love everything about it. My husband proposed in Florence, making it the most memorable trip, but I love Venice too. The Italians cannot be beaten on food and style in my opinion.  

Sunday best?
Sundays are meant for relaxing and I spend most of them catching up with family. In the evening I like to cook something special and relax with my husband before another busy week at Handbag Clinic.
