Shopping the sales

Tell me, was I the only one not excited about the sales this year? I of course had a snoop, but nothing really excited me. There are so many sales and offers pre-Christmas now (hello Black Friday and Cyber Monday!), the January sales aren't quite what they used to be. I'll be honest, I didn't buy anything until the other week. Being this far into January you would think that all the good gear would have gone already... but nope. If there's one thing I've learnt... there's always time!

The slogan sweat

Long time readers will know that I love anything French. The Reiss French sweaters are my faves <3

I was in town the other day and noticed:

1. my local Gap Outlet was holding a sale event
2. this navy blue loveliness in the window

I tried it on and it was like the jumper was made for me. In a I-can't-believe-it-fits-so-perfectly kind of way. Thanks to the Gap sale, I paid less than £20 which is amazing value considering that Gap knitwear is such good quality and always lasts the test of time.

Silent Night Hotel Luxe bedding

The boring one! I was after a spare duvet for when friends come to stay but when I spotted that this duvet was 50% off, I selfishly decided to keep for myself! Straight from Silent Night's Hotel Collection, it does what it says on the tin. It's luxurious, cosy and like sleeping in a super fluffy cloud. I also bought the matching pillows which are extremely satisfying sinking into. It has made such a difference to my sleeping patterns and quality of sleep. There are some things in life worth investing in, and bedding is definitely up there!

Christmas cards

Yawn, Christmas cards. But hear me out. How about a box of cards for... 24p? No joke, I went to my local Card Factory and they had some amazing deals on boxes of cards that were only 99p in the first place. I bought two boxes (the second was a box of 30!) for the grand price of 48p and look how cute they are:


Remember last year when I got super spendy in Anthropologie? I must admit, I did get lured in the other day by an extra 20% off all sale fashion. That old chestnut. But this in itself warrants it's own post. I could literally spend all day browsing the Anthropologie website! <3

Did you pick up anything nice in the sales this year?
