Boxing Day Shopping


As yesterdays post suggested I did indeed shop til I dropped today, first in the actual shops and then online.. it’s a good job tomorrow is payday! I thought I’d give you a quick run down of todays buys and a sneak peek of my online orders for those interested.

Laura Mercier Bath Duo in Almond Coconut -£15 down from £30 (I’m so pleased with this, so luxurious I almost don’t want to use it) / Philosophy Purity Cleanser – £4.50 from £9 (This is a blogger favourite but I always thought it was overpriced so this miniature size will be a great way to try it for less.. especially in the sale!) / Benefit Skincare Set – £12.50 (I’m kicking myself a little at this one as it wasn’t actually in the sale at all.. I was in the bargain zone and this was one of my impulse buys.. I shouldn’t have strayed from the list.. regardless the small sizes will be good for our holiday next month) / Urban Decay Naked Basics – £20 (Can you believe I didn’t already have this.. now this was on my list but not a sale item either.. I bought it will travel in mind because it’s so compact and I love it already) / Urban Outfitters BDG Cigarette jeans – similar – £25 down from £50 (These are my favourite jeans so I bought them in a different wash) / Christiane Lemieux black and white frame – £10 from £20 (Will go with my living room decor perfectly) / Box – I can’t find this online 🙁 but isn’t it gorgeous? I bought it from House Of Fraser for £11.50

I bought a few things online but my most exciting purchase is this Wildfox sweatshirt that I just couldn’t resist..



Unfortunately it;s since gone out of stock however if you’re interested I’d suggest you keep an eye on it because I’ve seen them come back.. not sure why, maybe someone returned it but it can happen! This one is a great alternative that I’d have bought had I not bough the above…



Did you buy anything in the sales today? I’m really happy with what I have so far and although more and more things are cropping up and catching my eye I’m going to try and reign it in and keep my money for New York.. which by the way is only 30 days away..eek!

    You got some pretty awesome buys. I really wanted one of the benefit Christmas skin care kits, but it was in the sale so sold out. I only managed to pick up a few soap and glory bits in my local boots as my parents live so far away from any major shopping places. The basics palette an. Benefit skincare is great for travel xx

    No sale shopping for me because everything I wanted from Boots or Debenhams was sold out. I’m still considering placing a beauty bay or feel unique order but if I’m not really excited and rushing to place an order I probably won’t. It seems like everyone was sitting there on christmas morning ordering stuff haha, I’m not that commited.

    You brought some great things! I always end up buying things that aren’t in the sale too, haha :)xo

    No Boxing Day sale shopping for me this year but I know there were some good deals about. I got the Naked Basics palette from Santa and I really like it – you’re right, it would be great for travel!

    Awesome haul! I’m loving the idea of statement sweatshirts for 2014 – so will defo be on the lookout when I hit the highstreet. The UD palette is a must have for me too – as I resisted the urge to buy Naked 3 and I feel I deserve it 🙂
    Can’t wait to see your reviews on the other products
