Late Night Shopping Challenge At Princes Square


Princes Square Glasgow Shopping

I don't know if I'm slightly biased, due to the fact that I've lived here all my days but Glasgow has some of the best shopping destinations out there. The Glasgow Style Mile is a thing of wonder for shopaholics, like myself and Princes Square is positioned perfectly right in the centre of it. And now that it's edging ever closer to the festive period, over 200 stores in Glasgow City Centre will be operating extended opening hours. On Monday's, Tuesday's, Wednesday's and Friday's these stores will be opened until at least 7pm and on Thursday's late night shopping gets even later with most stores being opened until 8pm. To find out more be sure to check out People Make Glasgow's handy guide.

Princes Square Glasgow

When I was challenged to find the perfect gift for a loved one or family member within one hour of late night trading at Princes Square I immediately knew who I would be buying for. As I've mentioned a couple of times on the blog and on social media, my health has been all over the place for quite some time now. To say that it's been frustrating would be a massive understatement. In the last week alone my Mum has driven me to and from four doctor's appointments, where I had to have some pretty nasty injections and blood tests and to a hospital appointment. She's always there to support me, so this is for you Mum. And don't worry Dad, if you're reading, I've not forgotten about you. Expect a post on how to shop for your Dad this Christmas at the start of December.

Ted Baker Purse

After getting a little distracted by the stunning architecture, like I always do, I headed straight to one of my favourite stores in Princes Square; Ted Baker. My Mum's current purse is on it's last legs so I thought that I would treat her to a new one and when I saw this beauty I knew that it was the one. I'm seriously tempted to add this to my Christmas wishlist this year too as it's just so beautiful.

And in our family we show love and affection through candles. Sounds weird but that's the truth of it. Hehe. So I picked up a gorgeous Lily Flame candle from Illuminati which really does smell just like Parma Violets.

What do you think of my picks? Are you a fan of late night shopping? And have you started coming up with ideas for your Christmas wishlist and for what to buy your nearest and dearest this year yet?

  3. Love the candle - not sure about that particular scent though. May have to pop down to Ted Baker and pick up this purse though, it's beautiful and I could really do with a new one! x

  4. Ted Baker is one of my favourite places to shop! I've been using the same TB purse for three years now and it's still going strong, but I feel like I will end up replacing it within the year. Glasgow sounds beautiful to shop, but sadly I've never been.

  5. Princes Square is my happy place. The lighting, the fixtures, it's all just so luxurious. I instantly feel relaxed whenever I visit. Probably because I know I am pretty unlikely to go home having actually bought anything.

    That purse is an absolute beaut. Sounds like your mum deserves a treat too - what would we do without them when we're sick? Hope you're on the mend lovely.
