A trip to Bicester Village..

(photo taken December 2015 by me)Just after Christmas I had some time off and having been on the look out for a purse for literally a whole year, I took a trip with my friend Laura to Bicester Village (so overdue) .. now if you know Bicester Village you can automatically assume it would be chaos, three days after boxing day when all the reductions of already reduced designer bits are in full swing.. I was expecting a manic brawl for everything, but it was pleasant, bearable and I ended up coming home with YES A PURSE & a couple of other bits too..
If you've never been to Bicester before, nor heard of it.. Its a designer outlet 'village' in the heart of Oxfordshire, boasting a whole load of variety of shops from Kate Spade - all the way up to Burberry.. (you can see the full listing here) with brilliant reduced prices on current and out of season stock. Its 100% worth checking out, and I go at least a couple of times a year, if not more as its about an hour from home. You can make a day of it, (well tbh by the time you're done you realise you've been there all day anyways) - with lots of options to eat/drink.

I managed to get a couple of photos whilst I was there as I was testing out my new Olympus Pen..

We visited a lovely restaurant called 'Le Pain Quotidien' I chose a chilli pot & hot chocolate.

Have you ever been to Bicester?
