The January sales are one of my favourite things. As most of you will know I hardly ever buy anything full price and even in the sales I am really stingy if the sale is 'up to 50% off' and I pick something up that's only a few quid off I will leave it there. That's why I seem to be buying less each year in the sales and just less in general. No matter how nice something is it takes a lot for me to actually buy it.
The sign of a successful January sales trip
I have heard so many good things about NYX so I grabbed the chance to try one of the lip butter gloss at only £2 as they were in the sale.
I have desperately been needing some new gloves for a while and these are perfect.
An essential reduced Candy Mountain bubble bar from lush.
How beautiful are these amazing heels I got in the new look sale for only £6!!! I cant wait to wear these in the Spring with pastels.
I have been looking for an everyday silver necklace preferably one of the bar ones like the tops necklace, this is a set of two but can be work separately. From Miss.Selfridge.
I have had my eye on this beautiful top from TopShop for a while but couldn't justify paying £38 on a T-Shirt so I had to pick it up in the sale from £15.
I had a next Gift Card to spend but I was really struggling. I usually get jeans in there but they only had them in really dark denims so I went for something I wouldn't normally choose. I never wear coral colours (mum always said they never suit pale skin tones more for tans) and I hardly ever wear blouses. Surprisingly mum loved this but I am just not sure.
Then one the Tuesday when everyone was back at school and work me and mum went into Cwybran to meet up with some family friends for lunch but of course we did a spot of shopping before and after. Here I picked up a make up bag from Marks & Spencer in the same patteren as my much loved ikea duvet ( I am obbsessed with this pattern) this was actually new season opps, an old green day greatest hits album, the latest You me at Six album which actually came out about a year ago (opps), a book on Audrey Hepburn and the photos that remember her by. I also picked up a cute set of thank you cards that we all know I'll never use and a brow pencil from MUA which I reviewed here. The last thing I got on this trip was a beautiful blanket scarf from Accserorise I had wanted one from Christmas that I saw in New Look but I didnt recieve it, we didn't see it in their sales but I think it worked out well as I much prefer this one (look out for it in a outfit post soon)
More stuff you all think? Well yes last week on my little brothers birthday we went into PontyPridd (all you Welsh readers will be think why?) We only went there for the late afternoon but I still managed to get this beautiful bodycon skirt with a purple and pink feather pattern, in River Island for £8.
Then the biggest bargain of the season (sorry the photo doesn't make them look great) I found these amazing ivory jeggings with a Jaqured pattern on in Marks&Spencer from £35 that went down to £20, £17,99, £8,99 then an insane £2.49!! I know its ridiculous. I just couldn't leave them there at that price. I am planning on wear these as a formal alternative to jeans with a black blouse and heels.
So I hope you enjoyed this long haul. I definitely enjoyed shopping for it! Did you manage to pick up any insane bargains like the jeggings from £35 to £2.49?
