January Sale Haul!
Only a little haul but I had quite a few vouchers for Christmas and while I was in town today for a meeting, I thought I'd get some fresh air and go for a mooch now everyone's gone back to work and school.
First up I used my Monsoon voucher.. well, I don't often go to Monsoon as it's a bit pricey but I managed to use it in Accessorise on this super cute necklace for Spring and a keyring to cover the last £2. Not bad for £10 for both eh ;)
Nick got me a New Look voucher (clearly knows me so well, favourite shop by far!) and I picked up a new sleeveless coat.. my latest obsession! It's a gorgeous dark grey colour with military style silver buttons. It's quite a heavy one so it'll be great for the next few months with a jumper underneath. I've not really done scarves this winter for the first time - normally I'm scarf mad and I have a whole coat stand just for scarves. This winter's scarf, courtesy of New Look is big enough to be a picnic blanket but it's super soft and neutral colours to go with anything. The jacket was £11 and the scarf £9.
So I debated putting these in as I've actually returned them as a) they sent me the wrong colour and b) they didn't fit anyway! But I was reading Sam over at Little Fickle's blog about the January sales and some similar were mentioned and I'd been debating them for ages so while they were only £12 instead of £20, I went for it. I'm gutted though as they didn't suit me as I have quite big legs so they didn't look right at all :( *Heartbroken emoji*
Not that I needed anymore candles whatsoever after getting like 6 for Christmas, I actually went into Boots first thing boxing day morning an hour before I started and managed to pick up 2 large Yankee Candles, both half price; Christmas Cookie and Snow in Love. The one I really wanted was my favourite winter one this year; Snowflake Cookie so when I went into our new Percy Thrower Garden Centre and saw the large ones were £9.50, I couldn't resist getting one before they all sold out. I know it's not christmas anymore, but this was my favourite candle this season.
Finally, with a HMV voucher I picked up the Not Going Out boxset. I have one boxset which is Series 1-4 and 5-7 were £12.99 each so with the 1-7 with Christmas specials and bonus features discs being £14.99, I'd be stupid not to buy this one to watch the last 3 Series with Nick and eBay the original set I had. Can't wait to get stuck in and see what happens!
There's a few other bits I've got my eye including a new Laptop and potentially a camera for blogging and travelling this year as well as to use to build a MUA portfolio but I'm still trying to do some last minute research before Very finish their 60% off sale!
Where else do I need to look for some good January sale bargains? What has everyone else managed to pick up with their Christmas money? Links please!
