I’ve said this before and I’ll say this again. The city of Leeds is amazing. Not only because it’s home, but because of it’s vibrancy, friendliness and ability to sell two double vodka and cokes for £5. And I’m not the only one who think that. John Lewis thought it. Anthropologie thought it. Zara Home thought it. And now HomeSense have realised its amazingness and opened their doors right bang in the city centre.

Located on the Headrow, which is one of the main roads running through the centre, the store officially opens its doors at 10am this morning. I was lucky enough last night to walk around the store with a few of the cities finest bloggers, and preview all the products they have on offer. The team at Homesense kindly gifted me a £25 voucher to spend in store but £77.95 later I was stood at the tills asking someone to take my basket away and not let me spend another penny. HomeSense + payday + supposed to be saving + disaster.

I can’t wait to show you the pieces I bought and I’ll put a haul together this weekend, with how I’ve styled everything in my home. I always think it’s nice to see a haul where the product is actually styled and being used in real life.

Anyway, have a scroll below to see my favourite bits in store, and make sure you visit if you live in Leeds or plan on visiting. Be warned, this store is huge, and with so many purse-friendly prices you’ll end up doing what I did and filling a trolley when all you went in for was a notebook.
