Yesterday i went to York for the afternoon with my friend from back home. I really love York, it's just one of those places that just makes you feel happy and content and you could loose hours wondering around the cutest little shops down cobbled streets. If you ever want to find a gift for someone that's unique and 'pretty' then York really is the place to go. I was after a present for my cousin, and i found exactly what wanted in the second shop i visited and I'm over the moon. It was nice to go shopping somewhere other than the local high street, and it was even nicer going somewhere totally different. We stopped for ice cream (both opting for bubblegum) and had a really lovely lunch in a propa English pub (you know the ones that haven't been converted in to Wetherspoons!) We took a little de tour on the way back to the car and walked past Accessorize who were having a massive sale on. Accessorize is the kind of shop i never go in, not because i don't love everything, but because it's just so expensive for what it is. But with the sale i ended up spending £10 on some bracelets which would have come to nearly £40 if i had bought that at the original price now that is what i call a bargain! They're having a massive sale on their website too with up to 70% off so i seriously recommend you check them out, they have some lovely items on there at the mo!
So after spending some pennies i probably shouldn't have we took a nice chilled out walk back to the car park, that was until the skies opened and the rain just poured. I have never been in rain like it, and we couldn't stop because well there wasn't anywhere and after a few mins we were soaked through already. I mean we were that wet we dripping, it was like we'd had a shower and i was entering a wet t shirt competition! Check this for the lolz! It was highly amusing thinking about it now, not really at the time though!
If you ever get a chance to go to York you should, because it's so lovely you'll never want to leave!
