January Sale Shopping

Hello all! Has anyone else been shopping in the January sales? I actually wasn't supposed to be spending in January but like most people I can never resist a few bargains; even if I don't need lipstick number 157 if its on sale I am going to have it. Obviously. So, I thought I'd do a little post on some of the things I picked up!

I went shopping on the 27th of December with my mum and the first place we went into was Boots of course! I was so happy when I found out that they still had some soap and glory gifts left and I picked up the Eau-la-la Gift Set containing some products from S&G's newest scent Orangeasm! This was supposed to be £16 and I got it for half price so that's not too bad at all! Also down to £4 from £8 I got a Ted Baker Lip Gloss and Nail Varnish set housed in the cutest packaging ever (similar here). I have to say I wasn't expecting much but both of these are really good; the lip gloss is actually really pigmented and the nail polish lasts a good 4 to 5 days without any major chipping issues! Lastly, I picked up the Smashbox On the Rocks Set which was down to £16.66 from £25 and it contains a full sized mascara and eye liner as well as a miniature eye make up remover!

Next I popped into the Yankee Candle Shop and picked up a medium jar Season of Peace Yankee Candle which was half price. I liked how this scent wasn't as Christmassy as some of the other ones and the fresh scent would be good to burn all year round. I'm still working my way through my Christmas candles haha! I also picked up this super pretty Pink Balcony Bra from Boux Avenue which was down to just a tenner from £28! I always struggle to get my bra size in the sales so I actually picked up quite few bras from there! I also got two cute gift boxes from Accessorize which were only 20p each. I don't really know why I picked them up, but they will possibly come in handy at some point! I then got a Mini Purity Cleanser (full size here) from Debenhams which was half price again! I've always wanted to try this one so I was really glad to get it in the sales. 

Clothes wise I didn't actually get very much at all in the sales. I ordered a few things from Asos on Boxing Day, but I didn't receive them until a few days ago. I actually had to send a dress and a top back because they just weren't great on, but oh well! I managed to pick up this gorgeous Camel Coat for just £35! It's so warm and such a lovely thick material I definitely won't be cold this month! And I also got some Black T-bar Patent Flats for work as they looked super comfy and were only £9 in the sale! Such a shame about the other things not fitting properly but these two seem to make up for it!

So that's everything that I picked up the sales (so far anyway)! Please feel free to let me know if anything catches your eye so I can do a review on it for you! 

Have any of you been out shopping in the sales? What were your favourite buys? 


  1. As if that coat was £35, what a bargain! I actually didn't bother sales shopping this year, I just haven't been in the mood to look! Probably for the best though haha :)
