Something that I really love about Leeds is that it literally has every shop that you could ever want. Topshop, Zara, Harvey Nichols etc… and even the Victoria Quarter (renamed ‘The posh bit’ by me and my mum), which has loads of higher end shops, where I’ve been tempted to blow my entire student loan in one go, but thankfully that hasn’t happened yet.
There is a new addition to the plethora of places to shop and that is in the form of Victoria Gate. Inside, there are lots of new, lovely shops including & Other Stories, COS, T2 and to add to the madness, a giant John Lewis (madness in a good way).
However, my favourite addition is the new Anthropologie store, literally every homeware lovers dream come true. Every single thing I am convinced that I need; whether it’s one of their gorgeous candles or if it’s a pretty ceramic kitchen utensil that you’d probably never have a use for, but still confidently place in your basket whilst convincing yourself that it’s essential.
It’s spread across two floors and doesn’t follow any particular order in terms of clothes on one floor and homeware another, it’s kind of all just mixed up nicely which makes it interesting when you’re wandering around.
It’s also a fab place to go and look for Christmas presents, and so what better time to go and have an explore than now!
