Shopping Spree: Day 1 & Day 2

Woohoo! Been shopping a lot these 2 days. I got a good excuse for it. Graduation! Honestly. I needed a white long sleeve blouse, black pants or skirt and shoes to go with it. See, perfectly good excuse reason. So me and me friends decided to go to Leeds yesterday, cause there are more shops there. Damn, i miss shopping there already. Since i've been in UK, i've not shopped much, so i've decided to give myself a treat. :D

Day 1

Location: Leeds
Weather: Hot and sunny ( a lil cloudy at first) with an occasional nice breeze
Target: Shirt, pants/skirt and shoes
Depart to Leeds: 10.00 a.m.
Arrive back in Bradford: 7.00-ish p.m.

It's only 20 minutes from Bradford to Leeds by train. I prefer Leeds to here. Who doesn't? More shops, more people, less ah-chahs and there is a Chinatown there. Once reaching Leeds, we went to check out the chinese restaurant we wanted to have lunch in. Their buffet starts at 12p.m, so we had time to shop a lil first. Went in some shops, and i got 3 pairs of hoop earrings of different sizes (they came all in one packaging, so i HAD to buy all three rite) and a blue-yellow-white horizontally striped halter top. After walking around for a bit more, then it was time for lunch!

Had lunch in Wok Mania. We've eaten there before, and allll chinese buffets have basically the same dishes more or less. Just had chinese buffet few weeks ago when i was in Manchester. Eat until i wanna puke! But i dunno what draws us to chinese buffet yet again. Must be the Chinese-man inside all of us. I'm not much of a big eater but i do try to my best when it comes to buffet. Heh.

After lunch it was back to the shops! Went into a shopping mall and headed to H&M, quite a popular brand here. Me and Jace spend a lot of time in there, we tried on so many clothes!! So much time till the guys were bored and went to walk around the mall by themselves. I found a pair of black pants that i really like and picked out a 3/4 khaki pants. Bought those 2 pants after going in and out of the changing room so many times! Came out from H&M and went in to the shop next to it, called TK-Max. There's a branch in Bradford as well. The shops are filled with a lot clothes! But some cheap ones have limited choice. I went in straight and found a nice looking long sleeve blouse. Went to try it out, and turned out not bad. So i bought it cause it was cheap and i may not find a blouse as nice or as cheap as this one!

After that, went into MK One, another shop. Didn't stay that long, tried on a pair of khaki pants, a blouse and a skirt. Bought the pants, cause i really like it too! Oh ya, i WAS looking out for shoes along the way. But none really look nice and mostly expensive. :( We went to Topshop next. I spotted a nice looking white pants (pants again!). I really did try it out! I was on a roll that day, why stop? I wore the pants, and fell in love with it. I just had to have it! You know the feeling? If i didn't get it, and then change my mind, i won't be able to get it in Bradford cause i was just in Topshop the other day and i didn't see it. It wasn't that cheap, but i love it to bits, so no regrets! Btw, the Topshop there has the nicest changing room so far! It's quite big inside, you'll come to an area with a big big long long mirror, opposite the changing stalls. You can change inside the stall and then walk out to view yourself with that big big long long mirror. Damn nice.

It was getting quite late already, and most shops were closing so we walked a bit more, had a drink at Starbucks and then decided to head back to Bradford. Reached back around 7-ish, armed with shopping bags but i never did find a suitable pair of shoes. :( So what to do? Shopping again lor...haha.

-End of Day 1-

Day 2

Location: Bradford, City Centre.
Weather: Hot and sunny but breezy.
Target: Shoes & a movie
Depart: 11 a.m.

So the 4 of us met up again this morning to continue from what we left off yesterday. I pity the guys though. :P Headed to the city centre and went to McD for lunch first. Once we were finished, we went into Kirkgate shopping centre. Saw some shoes but not nice!! Went into MK One and this time i saw a denim skirt. Tried it on, and i bought it. :D Went into Interna├žionale (another shop) and saw some nice looking belts. Bought a nice belt for meself to go with my white pants. Muahahahah. Ok, moving along.....

After that we went to catch Batman Begins. I love Orange Wednesdays! *Ahem* Ok, so the movie was so-so. The first half was all talk. About his past, what he did to get that superlicious bod of his and how he turned into Batman. I didn't know that the Bat Mobile started out that big, loud and heavy! I thought Christian Bale's mouth looked a lil funny when he wears the mask. Oh, and the mask comes with a gruffy low voice? Hehe. But it was ok overall. That man has damn nice abs and biceps! *Drool*

Reached back at 5 p.m. Was exhausted. Been waking up early these 2 days. What? 9 a.m. is early ok. Since i've been waking up like 12 or 1 p.m these days cause i sleep around 3 or 4 a.m. Need me 12 hours of beauty sleep.

-End of Day 2-

Oh well, i saw a lot of nice clothes (love the summer fashion here) but refrained from buying. Hehe. Anyways, need to save up money for my Eurotrip! So i'll be eating bread and water the next few weeks.....
