To celebrate John Lewis’ opening a store in Leeds (whoop), I have a £50 gift card to give away to one lucky Honest Mum reader.

The nation’s most beloved department store, John Lewis opened in Leeds’ glittering new shopping complex, Victoria Gate, just before Christmas and this week saw me head there for the first time and it’s a beauty to behold!

John Lewis has it all. Gorgeous fashion (I’m a huge fan of their Loved and Found range that showcases emerging talent), luxury beauty, super cute kids clothing, chic interiors and the best Christmas ads…ever! I don’t think there’s ever been a time I’ve set foot in a John Lewis store and walked away empty-handed.

To be in with a chance of winning this amazing £100 gift card simply enter via The Rafflecopter at the end of the post but first, enjoy some ‘shop-spiration’ and check out my top picks from their beauty, home ware and accessories departments.
