Post-Christmas shopping in York

Wednesday, December 28, 2016
York, UK

We took off to York yesterday to do some sale shopping. I'm not a big fan of the post-Christmas sales - some people get weirdly aggressive and there's just too many folk about to truly enjoy it. Unsurprisingly, York was really busy, but I did manage to do a fair bit of shopping without having someone's elbow in my face and without waiting in a queue for half an hour!

I picked up a new top and tote bag from Fat Face, How to Be Mindful by Anna Barnes and Bloom by Estée Lalonde from Oliver Bonas (hugely discounted, I was so pleased with these), an Instax photo album from Urban Outfitters, Fleet Foxes by Fleet Foxes and This Is All Yours by alt-J from HMV, a selection of chocolate from Hotel Chocolat (can't not), and some lush 100% cotton bedding from Primark.

I love buying CDs. I don't really have space for them anymore but there's just something I really like about physically holding music.

Bloom has received high praise in the blogosphere, and with it having a couple of quid knocked off I thought I'd pick up a copy. The book on mindfulness looked like a cute read too especially for £5 in the sale, so I added that to the book pile.

My brand new Primark bedding is now on, my Soak and Sleep pillows I ordered last week arrived this morning, and I'm currently about to pop on a CD to listen to while I browse for iPads online because I'm 99% sure mine has kicked the bucket. 😓 Apart from the dying iPad, it's been a pleasant Wednesday so far.

Done any sale shopping yourself? I'm not doing any more now until the new year. I daren't brave those crowds again.
