Hello Boxing Day sale purchases...

Hello lovelies!

I hope that you're finding January bearable so far! I'm here to talk a little bit today about the Boxing Day sales (even though it seems forever ago!) and to share my main purchase (and a couple of others!)

Boxing Day is a funny one for me; I like going out and shopping, but sometimes I just don't understand the carnage that comes along with trying to hunt out a bargain!  A few years ago, I made a deal with myself to only buy something if I either needed it or I was scouting it out before the sale,  otherwise I could spend forever hunting for a bargain that I didn't really want or being seduced by the price.  I'm sure we've all had that experience of getting something home and then wondering why we bought it in the first place-I know I have!  The other thing is, if you're just there to see what you can find, sales can be pretty overwhelming things.  My Mister however, loves a Boxing Day shop-I think it might even be his favourite day of the year!  So I potter around behind him, letting him do his thing, and if I see something along the way, well that's just an added bonus!  This year was very much one of those occasions!

Our plan of action is usually to get up early and head to Newcastle for our sale shopping, before it descends into madness later on.  Our hit list is usually Fenwick (which didn't used to open on Boxing Day-but now does and has amazing deals) and Cruise.  Both sell higher-end stuff and both have genuine sale prices on the day.  I also like visiting Marks and Spencer; I buy a lot of clothes from there anyway, so there are usually things that I'm after during sale time.   This year was no different and Fenwick was heaving!  My Mister managed to grab himself a few things, Paul Smith jeans and a shirt (which ended up going back) but there wasn't anything that I was enamoured with in womenswear.  Good old Marks and Spencer came good though; I picked up a gorgeous jumper (half price at £12.50) and a lace shirt I'd been after for a while, reduced from £45 to £19!  I'd resigned myself to the fact that that's probably all I would get, until I headed to Cruise!

 All about the detail in this jumper!

Again, there were great bargains to be had for my Mister; he got a Kenzo shirt for half price at £60!

The shirt in question!

It's a good one too, and one I know he'll wear it forever!  I on the other hand, wasn't looking for a handbag, but as is usually the case with me, I managed to find one...

Half price at £130 from £260, my Christmas money was gone in a flash!  I absolutely love it, I love the detail, the size, the fact that it fits my purse and that it will be perfect for both through the day and on an evening.  I love when you spot something like that and it's such a good price!  Thank you Cruise (and Kenzo!).  I looked online at Flannels (same company) to see if there were any left, but the closest I could find in the sale was this one here.  But if you're just looking for a new handbag in general, they still seem to have loads of great deals online here too!

Did you manage to find anything decent in the sales this year?

If so, please let me know!

Until next time,
