Winter Sales Haulage!Thursday, January 06, 2011
Hiya! I'm not one to go to the sales. I'm not really up for fighting it out with battle-hardened, seasoned pros over some clot...
I'm not one to go to the sales. I'm not really up for fighting it out with battle-hardened, seasoned pros over some clothes and what not. Usually I go about 5 or 6 days later when all that's left is the junk that no-one in their right mind would even look at twice!
This year, I spotted that the sales started online on christmas eve! I never knew this happened! I woke up at 6:30am that day to check out the topshop online sale but most of the good stuff was already gone! OMG!
I really wanted to go to the high street asap to bag some bargains, but after hearing so many horror stories about boxing day I thought I'd hold out til the 27th.
Even then it was horrific, in the Topshop at the Manchester Arndale Centre there were just so many crazed women with fire in their eyes pushing, shoving and elbowing other crazed women out of the way in the name of bargain-hunting! At first I was all "Oh, excuse me, can I just have a look here..?" or "Can I just squeeze past you there please?" but no. No amount of politeness got me anywhere.
So what did I do? I rolled up my sleeves, upped my game and started putting myself about a bit. Ended up walking out of Topshop pretty happy in the end! I nabbed a few more bargains from Boots, H&M, Miss Selfridge and a special mention for my Space NK bargain bag!
So here's the goodies:
Cost me £3.00! I'm usually the type to go for smokey, neutral eye shadow. But seeing as turquoise is my fave colour, I'd love to see how I get on with this.
This bronze purse I nabbed for £8.00 is an absolute beaut.
I remember really wanting this a couple of months ago but could not justify buying it for £35. I was over the moon to see this for £15. Woop woop!
This glittery oversized kimono I bagged for £20.00. It was originally £45!
But this is my fave from all of the above. This camel toned mesh dress was once priced at £50 was dropped down to £25! I was one happy lady when I whipped it off the rails.
H & M
I'm really into minty colours at the moment. From nail polish to clothes. This went from £20 to £10. I had no choice to but to buy it!
I have no idea why I walked into this shop but I'm glad I did. I stumbled across acrylic storage boxes for £6. So I bought 2. And as you can see, I've already filled some of them up. :)
This was a neccessary purchase. My Toni n Guy hairdryer broke a few months ago so I've been living with a travel dryer which was rubbish! The hairdryer cost me £25. LoveloveLOVE the Zebra print.
Miss Selfridge had some stunning pieces of jewellery on sale. The store in Manchester city centre is pretty tiny and cramped and there was no way I was going in there. So I bought these online. Super glad they weren't sold out :)
& Last but not least..
Yep, that's Frederic Fekkai! I seriously could not believe my eyes when I saw these were half price! So all together it cost me around £18.00? But apparently I had £5 on my Space NK card so I got another few pounds of the price to bring it to around £12!! BARGAIN! I'll start using these when my Himalaya Protein Shampoo & Conditioner runs out.
And that's it!
This has been the best sale EVAR. For me, anyway..
What did you buy from the sales? How was it for you? Aggressive? Or not too bad? Let me know, ladies!
