You'd be correct in thinking I was on a spending ban. I am, and believe it or not, still going strong. This rather large bounty was bought in the Boxing Day sales and for some reason, I've waited to now to show you.
After shouting more expletives than I'd care to admit at my iPad, I finally manged to add two Lush gift set's into my basket and checkout. I don't know what it is with the Lush website, but it does seem to be an annual tradition that I simply crashes every Boxing Day. Surely you'd think they would have learned by now? Aside from that I had to have a look at Space NK. I have a love hate relationship with Space NK. I love the store and hate what it does to my bank balance. I feel that I was actually quite restrained this year. I stocked up on my favorite Laura Mercier bath goodies, a REN skincare set and finally got my hands on some NUDE products.
I'd already started shopping for fashion bargains on Christmas Eve. My mum actually told me about this Lulu Guinness bag, which was half price at House of Fraser, when I came home from work at lunch time. I've been after a Lulu Guinness bag for quite a while now and loved this one as soon as I saw it. It's a small structured bag with a long gold chain strap which could be worn on the shoulder or cross body. How cute is the little lipstick charm?! I also picked up an over-sized blue clutch and black jelly shoes from ASOS. I was desperate to get some jelly shoes for my holiday to Crete before the shops bump the prices up. I was umming and ahhing about getting a pair of neon pink ones, but the practical, boring side of me won, and I opted for simple black. I then nipped onto Zara. I needed a new work back as my current one from Primark, is 5 years old and slowly falling apart. I managed to find this beautiful navy city bag which is the perfect size, as well as this necklace. It's so heavy, but I cant stop staring at it. It's like lots of wine gums stuck together! Obviously on a bit of a spending spree, I then had a look at New Look and managed to persuade myself I needed another pair of black heels. Oh and this tribal necklace just happened to fall into my basket. Online. Oops.
Did you pick up any bargains?
