Boxing Day Sales Shopping

With the spending ban looming I quickly made some purchases in the sale after Christmas and used my work discount to good effect…

Here’s a quick preview of what I picked up and will in all likelihood be posting about soon!

This is photo heavy but I don’t waffle on too much 🙂

I hadn’t seen this in the Christmas section but someone brought it to the till, and at £15 before discount I needed it!

Also couldn’t resist this set. I got the gradual tan one for Christmas and with discount this set was down to £10………epic!

I did not plan on buying this but as soon as I saw these fragrance gift sets on offer for 1/3 off I went sniffing away at them until I found this lovely Ralph Lauren one.

It is part of their new ish fragrance range that I first smelt in America and I loved the pink one, number 2. Unfortunately it would seem so does every one else so that had sold out everywhere (even online!) so I picked up number 4 for £20.

I’ve had my eye on these beauties for a long time, and eventually made the purchase!

I bought them off ASOS in the sale which was crazzzzzy and I really shouldn’t have bought them or at least not as many but I did and I love them allllllllllll.

Expect lots of gushy posts from me about these beauties, I love nail varnish, love OPI and am a complete Bond freak (I love the drama, action and glamour!)

Here are two new pairs of shoes I also picked up from the Dorothy Perkins sale, they cost £35 altogether, which was before student discount so I did reaaaaaaaaally well with these!

I also picked up some new jeans. Nothing special, just a black skinny pair and a normal dark denim pair to replace two that are now too big for me.

Lastly I had a splurge on Urban Outfitters where I picked up the following three for around £25, which was amazing considering the top was originally £28!

I love the galaxy feel of the top, with the space and zodiac vibes! It has low cut arm holes too so will be great for comfort.

The studded item is my new phone case to stop it getting bashed in my bag and keep it looking chic and the bangle was a random buy that I absolutely love already!

It goes with so many things and considering its so long is quite comfy and I’m sure will feature in my life quite a lot!

So there’s my splurge before the ban and the reason for me being ok with the ban…..11 days in 😉

Do you like my purchases? What do you think of the shoes and cosmetic goodies?!
