If you saw my Twitter/Instagram feed on Saturday then you probably saw that myself, Gemma (McCarthys Beauty Review) and Rachel (Notes from the city) had a bit of a shopping trip in Leeds. Be warned this is a very photo heavy post!
It was Gemma’s birthday the week before so we started the day off with a naughty little bit of prosecco on the 8:22am train from Sheffield to Leeds (prosecco for breakfast is ok right?) by the time we arrived in Leeds and met up with Rachel we was a little bit giggly!
We headed straight to Harvey Nichols and both Gemma and I literally squealed with excitment of the beauty counters!
I picked up a NARS foundation, a Giorgio Armani eye tint and a few bits from Charlotte Tilbury.
I had set myself a budget for the day but I went over it. A lot over it!
We then had a wander through the Victoria Quarter which I adore…..its just a beautiful old fashioned shopping area with stunning features. I love pretty buildings that seem to take you back in time. I wish more places where like this rather than the faceless shopping malls that seem to spring up everywhere.
We stopped for lunch at Yo! Shusi in the Trinity Centre. I’m going to admit it that this was my first ever Yo! experience and I LOVED it. I had the pepper squid and tempura shrimp – it was amazing.
After lunch we popped over to The Alchemist as I had been told we needed to pay it a visit so it was a must do to stop in for one drink. I was so surpirsed by how busy it was but it was a relaxed atmosphere and we managed to get a seat out in the sun!
While we was passing a bit of time until it was time to get the train home we had a wander to Starbucks to grab a drink and rest our feet. We also headed over to the Corn Exchange which is another unique building that I fell in love with. Its full with independant quirky shops and eateries.
Ps sorry some of the pictures aren’t the correct way – wordpress is being naughty and won’t let me rotate them for some reason! I will keep trying though xx
