Trip to Country Living Christmas Fayre


Last Saturday I went to the Country Living Christmas fair in Harrogate with my mum and grandma and it was such a lovely event that I thought I would take you along with me..

After a traumatic journey from Newcastle, in which I realised with 1 minute to go that the train I had settled myself onto...was actually going to Glasgow, I eventually arrived, after a slight heart attack in Harrogate, which is such a cute place to visit, especially at this time of the year as the Christmas lights make everything look so pretty!

The fair was held in the International centre, and was filled with hundreds of stalls, from homeware to skincare, food to furniture – it was the perfect place to buy gifts..for myself..! Ever since I've moved to university, I've become obsessed with buying homeware stuff, like actually obsessed and this has only increased since I put a deposit down on a house for next year with my friends which = even more room to fill with stuff from The White Room and Next!

It was such a hard decision to actually choose what I was going to buy for myself, as there was so much choice and everything was so pretty – I know, first world problems or what. I actually didn't buy a huge amount for myself, as everything I picked out to buy, my mum said she would get as she needed things to put into my stocking(am I the only person over the age of 7 to still get a stocking? please say no) so in other words, I'm ridiculously excited for Christmas day!

The fayre was a brilliant way of finding small boutiques and brands that I would never have known about otherwise, including possibly my new favourite skincare brand...

Usually, small branded skincare can be super expensive, well for my student budget anyway, however when I stumbled across Sweet Cecily's, it was like I'd died and gone to heaven. I have super sensitive skin that is almost never fully clear and I have to be really careful when trying new foundations etc so to find a fairly priced brand, that has some of their products targeted at sensitive skin was perfect! The packaging was gorgeous and for £15, I(my mum) got a moisturiser, toner and clay mask, and I can't wait to start using them as soon as I rip the paper off on Christmas day! If you wanted to take a look, the website link is

I will definitely be showing you the bits and pieces that I picked out after Christmas and will put a review up on the skincare in the near future! It was a lovely day with my mum and grandma and I will definitely be going again next year, if not to stock back up on fudge and handmade chocolates!

Have you ever been before? What other homeware fayres are there around?

Where are your favourite places to shop for homeware? Let me know!!

Thanks for reading!
