I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I spent my day opening presents (I got some lovely bits!), having a huge fry up, playing games with the family before it was time for me to cook Christmas dinner. I don't mean to toot my own horn but it was pretty banging. I only had one mishap where I drenched myself in goose fat (cold not boiling thank heaven). After dinner we played lots more games before feeling rather tipsy and settling down to the Royle Family at about 1:30am! Boxing Day was spent watching soaps, finishing off making homemade chocolates, visiting my best friends family & shopping!
I decided not to venture out to the Boxing Day sales and opted to do it all online, big mug of baileys hot chocolates in hand. I set myself some gudielines:
I am a sucker for sales and usually get really cheap things because it's on sale and then never even wear/use them. This year I told myself to look at more expensive products that were around 50% so I know I saved a decent amount on something quite dear.
Get something you need & make sure there isn't one similar sitting in your wardrobe at home!
Aim for higher end brands or brands you haven't used before!
I was so proud that I did all this (still managed to make my Paypal account cry though!)
Here's what I got!
JD Sports - Adidas Originals Decade OG - £67.00 down to £30.00
I have needed some decent trainers for ages as I was committing fashion crimes everytime I went to the gym in my OLD Babychams. Yes Babychams! These are still girly with the sequins and will go with everything!
Space NK - Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette - £17.50 down to £8.50
Really liked the look of every single colour and have been wanting to try more of the brand due to my love of her tinted moisturiser.
Space NK - Chantecaille Real Skin Foundation - £50.00 down to £10.00
This is a gel foundation which I have never tried before and the savings on this is amazing! It has SPF 30 in it so will be a great product for when it starts to get warmer!
I really wanted a khaki coat with some faux fur on it and the only other one that took my fancy was from Topshop for £70! This one is different as it has a camo print on it which I love!
Urban Outfitters - Steam Cream - £14.00 down to £7.00
Always wanted to try this so really happy to find it half off!
Net a Porter - Hunter Shoreditch Wellies - £110 down to £47
My star purchase. I was going to go for the tall ones but these are so much more me! I think you could pair theses with little summer dresses and look so cute! I've always wanted some but know I won't get lots of wear out of them so didn't want to spend a fortune. £47 is really reasonable for something that will last me forever and protect my feet from getting wet!
So that's a total saving of £211 on this items which I am over the moon with. I have promised myself no more sale buys as I really don't need anymore clothes or anything else so January is going to be a big saving month for! I'm going to do a spending diary and see how little I can live on as there's a few things I would love to pay off! Now I've treated myself to these goodies I have no excuse to buy!!
If you have any great sales you have found please link them below so I can share them with my friends!
