- Sale Buys #1 -

Monday, January 06, 2014
December is a time for giving....and buying! The december sales are the main time of the year when I buy - treats for myself and presents for others birthdays and even christmas next year! I did go crazy last year but I haven't this year (proud of myself) - I have been fairly restrained. Most of these buys are sale items and I have bought these items over the past month. The next post will be just boxing day/sale items.

Dorothy Perkins: I bought two dresses (complete impulse buys) from Dorothy Perkins maybe at the beginning of December. I wasn't planning of buying anything but they were only...£5 each! Also the only size left was my size, fate. I bought a cute lace/pearl one and a lace/bow/printed one too. 

Zara: I have been eyeing up this bowling bag from Zara since the beginning of October and a couple of weeks ago I saw it in the 'special prices' section on the Zara website. It was reduced from £30 to £17, I do love it but it is a bit big. 

Superdrug: A couple of little bits from superdrug, I bought the keratin shampoo from Tresemme and I bought the Brilliant teeth whitening kit as I have heard good things about it and it was less than £4 (shockingly cheap - I had to get it). 

Marks and Spencer: This year quite a few shops had their christmas/January sale really early - about five days before christmas, madness! I bought three gifts in the M&S sale. Firstly I bought a set for my dad the 'Dapper cologne and shave set' which was reduced to around £7.99. I bought two cooking books - a chocolate one for a friend which was £5 and The Cooks Encyopedia for me which was also £5. 

Asos: Two nail items from Asos which you might have already seen if you follow me on instagram. I finally bought a nail art pen/marker - the Barry M Nail Pen in white. I also bought the amazingly gorgeous Rimmel Space Dust polish in the shade 'moon walking'. Both were around £3.99. 

Amazon: For new year this year we had a fancy dress theme (although everyone apart from me and my dad went in onesies, cheats!). I bought some fake stick on moustaches for my dad to wear with his Poirot outfit. Everyone ended up wearing them, even the dog! I also bought a tub of the Organic Surge Super Intensive Daily Moisturiser but it came in a different tub than my previous two tubs and it seemed different - I contacted organic surge and they asked for the batch code and it didn't have one. I still don't know what it going on. 

Organic Surge: I didn't know what to do with the amazon one I bought so I bought another from Organic Surge themselves and it too didn't have a batch code and it definitely seems like a different product - maybe around £17 down the drain - still waiting for a response. 

Boots: Finally just one purchase from Boots, the Una Brennan Rose Face Scrub. It was 1/3 off at the time and I had heard so much about this brand so I had to try it. I love this scrub it is amazing and it doesn't irritate my skin. 

Phew, that is the first part of the sale buys series - there will probably be two more posts, we will see....


  1. We had a Marks and Spencer in Vancouver waaay back when I was quite young - too young to appreciate it. My mother still remembers it quite fondly. Anyway, you certainly picked up some neat things at some pretty great prices!
