Lara Bingle shrugged off her romance troubles today to go shopping and have her nails done at a Central Coast shopping centre as her relationship with fiancee Michael Clarke continued to self-combust.

A cheerful Bingle and an unidentified female friend were spotted getting their nails done at Erina Fair before leaving with two shopping bags this afternoon.

Dressed down in stove pipe jeans, a black singlet and carrying a flannelette shirt Bingle did not make a comment as she got into her friends black Range Rover but was smiling and animated.

It is believed Bingle has been holed up in a friend’s multimillion dollar luxury beach front holiday house at Avoca Beach since leaving the Bondi unit she shares with Clarke two days ago.

Bingle’s appearance at the shopping centre was low key except for turning a few heads and the odd cry of “Lara”.
