Blogmas 2018 – Salisbury Christmas market

Salisbury Market

Christmas markets have been becoming increasingly popular over the last few years. I originally know them from Germany, but a lot of towns in the UK have them too.
Today is our anniversary, and S and I have a tradition now which means we both take the day off and spend it together.
We went for lunch in Salisbury, where we also visited the Christmas market. Unlike many of the markets around, the one in Salisbury is open until January – so if you get to the point where everything else has all packed up and you still want to go to a Christmas market, Salisbury is a good choice.
We didn’t actually eat at the Christmas market, which is held in the town square, but there are food options available if you want to.
I tasted my way through another cheese stand, and picked up delicious things such as rioja cheese, cheese with chives, and Christmas cheese (with cinnamon and fruit).
There was a stall with cool candles made to look like desserts, and a bunch of bath stuff. I managed to restrain myself there, but did pick up a bottle of the orange body lotion from Hive Originals, whom we first met at a chilli festival.
We also stopped at the chocolate shop, where you can find all kinds of tools and objects made out of chocolate. On another stall we picked up a couple of snowman lollies made out of chocolate too.
On the way back to the car, there was a stall selling flowers and Christmas greenery, so we picked up some pine sprigs as a table decoration.
Have you been to any Christmas markets this year? If so, where did you go and what did you do or buy there?

Advent calendar unboxing

Throughout Blogmas I’ll be unboxing my two advent calendars from Glossybox and the Body Shop and giving a brief product review.
Body Shop – I don’t usually use face mists, but today we got a rose face mist which is supposed to leave your body feeling refreshed with a dewy glow. Maybe more something for the Summer than December? Don’t know, but I’m happy to give it a go!
Glossybox – I can’t review this product because I’m giving it to someone as a gift, but it’s a full-size Pixie blusher, which is something we haven’t seen in the calendar so far and I think it’s a good thing to put in there.

  1. Ooo a full-size Pixi blusher is a great thing to get in the calendar!
    I love that the Salisbury market (never been to Salisbury, but would like to visit one day) is open until January, my local one finished probably just after the first week of December. xx

    1. I prefer the cream ones, so it’s not something I’ll use, but I know someone who I think will like it, so that’s ok.
      Yes, you always have to check when the markets close – I remember hunting around a couple of years ago – it was something like 20th Dec and we couldn’t find any markets that hadn’t finished. So it always pays to check in advance.
      Thanks for commenting on so many of these Blogmas posts – I love to chat! X
