VQ Leeds luxury shopping event

Thursday night I went down to the Victoria Quarter in Leeds for their annual shopping event. It’s a great night full of discounts and giveaways and this years was carnival themed – a little tacky but fun! I took advantage of the discounts and got some fab things and ate THE most divine chocolates ever. Plus I found some super cute home inspo in the stores…

I had the pleasure of meeting the fabulous Bink from Pearls and Swine – the most amazing, eclectic hat company, she made that crazy/cute kitten hat! I loved her look so much, especially that teapot bag!! She does custom orders too so if you’re after something a little more out there, she’s your gal.

I had my tarot cards read by Miss Pybis which was fun, apparently I’m going to face competition in my career but don’t worry because it will all work out in the end.

I also fell head over heels for the most amazing chocolate shop! I’ve spotted Charbonnel et Walker in Harvey Nichols before but this was the first time I’d actually been into the shop.
