Sale Shopping

So Christmas is now officially over and tomorrow it's New Years Eve. It's that time of year when January is almost here and I get the post Christmas blues. There's nothing like a bit of shopping to cheer you up and for those who love a bargain there are loads of sales on at the moment. Whilst I love a bargain, I'm not that mad I will queue up late on Christmas Day to go to Next. Yep, that's right, here in Cardiff a load of people queued up very late on Christmas Day so they could be the first in to the Next sale when the store opened on Boxing Day at 6am.

Lush had a sale online on Boxing Day, but the website had to go and crash because of the amount of people wanting to go on it. The same thing happened last year and you think Lush would have sorted it out this year. Apparently not. So the next day the Lush website had much less traffic. Oh and guess what, the sale had ended. You would have thought Lush would have extended their sale because of what happened the day before. They didn't, so no Lush online sale for me. 

So I decided to go out shopping into Cardiff to pick up some bargains. I had a look in the Lush store and found that they had a small amount of Christmas items left and were selling them at half price. That sort of made me a lot happier. I also had a look around a lot of other shops too to see what bargains I could find. I managed to get a few. Here is what I bought.


Lush Salt And Peppermint Bark and Mistletoe Bath Bomb. Both half price.



Body Shop Blueberry Body Butter. Half price.


I also got this Floozie by Frost French handbag in Debenhams for 20% off.





So that's what I bought. Did anyone manage to grab some bargains too.

  1. Never been a big lush fan but judging by the bath things my friends got me, I think I need to relax more. Sales have been crazy! It's good when you have something specific in mind but I haven't really! X

  5. Love the Handbag, You would think Lush would have done something about their computers since it happened before. I love to check out charity shops after the new year to get great deals on new stuff that no one wanted for Christmas.

  6. That's a gorgeous bargain, I purposely avoided the sales as I knew I would be overspending. The Lush products look awesome too

  8. Lush have the best sale - perfect for some retail therapy! I'm currently back home in France for the holiday and the sales haven't started here yet. Of course, everything good will be gone by the time I get back to London so no sale shopping for me...
