The lovely folk at Bicester Village invited me over for another Blogger’s shopping day. As you remember I went to one in April and it was fabulous, so I was more than happy to go back again. This time, I dragged was accompanied by my lovely husband who wanted to help me carry my shopping bags and come with me on the road trip over there. It’s about 2.5 hours from our house, so bit of a trek but well worth it.
We got there at 10.30 having dropped Miss L at breakfast club early, and were greeted at the VIP suite by lovely Stacey who is the Bicester Village Blogger and Tweeter and shares all the latest finds from the stores. Her and her team had done a fabulous job with a champagne breakfast – the chocolate croissants were lush! And there were lots of bloggers there who were looking forward to a good girlie shopping fest. So armed with a Bicester Village donated giftcard/credit card we headed out to the stores.
Paul was a bit disappointed to not see more men’s computer/hi fi/electronics stores, but he was kept going with a Starbucks Ginerbread Latte and a trip into Fat Face, where he got a very nice cardigan.
You just know where I headed……
Where I bought some Christmas presents….I can’t show you as they all read the blog. But I bought this for myself as a Happy Christmas to me present 🙂 I love it to bits!
This time I also headed to the new bookstore they have there which had some great art books, White Company to check out the bedlinens and children’s PJ’s which I love and Petit Bateau had some adorable baby clothes. I also popped into Links of London, I wore a bracelet at the Red Photoshoot which I fell a little in love with but I had no idea how much they cost. I was more than a little shocked when I found out!! But sadly it wasn’t in the store at a super, super discount, but they had some great bargains in there.
All in all it was a fabulous day, I finished my Christmas shopping, got to spent the day with my husband and got to meet some great bloggers including the lovely Amanda from PonteCarloorBust. Thank you Bicester Village x
