I'm a bit of a fanatic when it comes to the sales. I barely go in-store during sales though, I generally sit at home with a big mug of hot milo, Harry Potter on the TV, browsing through the online sales. This year I was very good and only bought things I actually need rather than just things I want...sort of. Let's put it this way; I abandoned my shopping cart so many times after realizing I won't use or wear the item, that the company I work for should do a case study on me.
Honestly though, I didn't go crazy this year, but what I did buy, I'm really pleased with. Firstly I got a new pair of shoes, they're really boring, just plain black flats, so I won't bother showing you those.Secondly, I got a new bottle of the DKNY Red Delicious perfume, as mine recently ran out. I got the 50ml bottle for just £24 from Boots, reduced from £48! It's still on offer, so you can get it for that price too - just click the link above. For me this is the perfect summer perfume, and I'll do a review on it soon.
I went to Sainsburys the other day to get lunch, and saw the huge sales in the electronics section. I've been needing a new ipod speaker for a while, so had a look, and saw this bargain! Reduced from £40 to £14, and these speakers are amazing. They're really easy to use and really powerful, the only downside is you need it plugged into the mains, so it's no good for holding a party in the middle of a field.
I also got a bead/pearl collar from Primark for just £2 reduced from £5. It's an exact dupe of the Topshop one - booyah!
Before Christmas I got these shoes in the sale from Clarks of all places! I've been looking for new loafers for a while, mainly for driving in, and fell in love with these. I think Clarks really does have some gems every so often. Most of the time it's filled with clumpy 'sensible' shoes, but every so often I see shoes and think 'I need those!'. These remind me hugely of the famous Gucci Loafers! They're just simple, classic and so so incredibly comfortable.
|I know it's a controversial subject, but I have a bit of a thing about black and blue - I absolutely love it.|
