So my job happens to take me away from my home town of Newcastle sometimes, workshops or meetings and training sometimes it’s a pain but mostly I actually really enjoy it!
I never usually get time to do anything it’s from train to office and back or train to office to hotel to office and back.
This week I have been to London Town and am now in sunny Leeds! Anyway to the point lol! On the train yesterday I had the best realisation ever!!!
My thought processes….
I need new perfume I’ve ran out of cheap and expensive ones and I have to assign myself to the fact that Stella McCartney Adidas gym gear was likely to be rather out of my budget (sad face) BUT oh my days! Leeds has a Victoria’s Secret store who sell both … And…. They have a sale on!!!
So somewhere between alighting the train, listening to live stream of something I was missing at home, buying dinner and checking into my hotel I had a sense of determination and urgency …. This was not about my training or my Project Management qualification! This was all about Victoria’s Secret!
The store in Leeds is massive, I’ve been in before and absolutely love it at risk of over spending and buying far too much I only looked at the perfumes and VS Sport range!
The store was quite busy their 50-75% off semi-annual sale (they seem to have made a conscious decision to keep Americanised, and I don’t know how many things could get a way with it, but it seems to work for them without being too annoying!)
Everything is nicely placed in baskets and boxes and sized rails, looking at things is always a pleasure in there if you’re like me coz everything is so pretty and you want it all lol
Anyway, I went around and decided on perfumes to look for and find in the sale and then checked out the VS Sport area! The Victoria’s Secret Bombshell and Angels Only perfumes are my fave and both were in the sale so I picked up the Bombshell gift set!
The VS Sport section was harder I wanted leggings but the choice was massive, bra tops I don’t have the six pack for or, let’s be honest, Park Run in Saltwell Park doesn’t really get the climate for them as much as they’re all gorgeous! I looked around for ages it made me want sweat pants! Which anyone who knows me will know I do not, have not and will not wear sweat pants! Yet strangely is found them somewhat cooler and all of a sudden in the running to be a purchase!
So I decided on long leggings then had to pick a colour way, usually I’m a pink girl (ideal for Victoria’s Secret!) but a pair of leggings caught my eye and I had to had them! Emblazoned down one leg were three words that sum me up perfectly … I Hate Running! Amazing I picked up the black pair trimmed with turquoise and then a fab turquoise vest with grey leopard print crop underneath!
To be honest (it’s confession time!) they aren’t that much cheaper than Stella McCartney Adidas BUT my justification is they’re unique, not many people will have them and
Victoria’s Secret so far are only in one or two places so it’s a treat!!!
I’ve came back and googled prices for the fashion show in London in December so if anyone wants to donate me nearly £10,000 for a ticket feel free to, or invite me as a blogger and I will selflessly help out ha!!!
Soo I can guarantee pretty much that won’t be happening but you know what I can’t guarantee? That Tomorrow won’t include another trip where I check out the rest of the store!!!
My bill came to £80
The leggings and top were £32.50 each and my fab perfume gift set was only £15!
