Just a quick blog post to show you all the bargains that I got myself in the January sales!
First and foremost, my beautiful new Leopard Print Dr Marten boots
Leopard Print DM boots £60.00 (Was £120.00)
I fell in lust when I saw these and at such a bargain price, HAD to have them. As with all Dr Marten boots they are hard and uncomfortable at the moment, but I know that with patience (not something I am blessed with) and perseverance they will be like slippers after a few wears.
Evans was my next stop and I couldn’t resist treating myself to some of the Clements Ribiero dresses.
First I brought the ‘Grace’ dress; this design is similar to the dress that Adele wore at the BRIT awards in 2012. It really is very nice to wear and the cut is flattering as Clements Ribiero always is in my experience as they are generous in the bust.
This dress has now sold out! (I have no idea why it won’t let me turn this photo around!!)
Last week I decided to have another mooch around the sale and picked up the following two items.
Clements Ribiero Peplum £25.00 (Was: £75.00)
Lace Skirt £12.00 (Was: £25.00)
I have not tried either of these on yet as they were delivered to the office and haven’t made it home with me yet! I am very pleased with the quality of material of both of them though and can’t wait to wear them.
Evans have an extra 10% off all sale prices now, just use the code NYEXTRA10 at checkout!
I always hit up the Debenhams sale for makeup bargains after Christmas. I love some of the sets that they do and never seem to get makeup for Xmas … I think my family think I have enough already.
My love affair with Illamasqua was further cemented with the 2 mystery boxes that I brought from them …
illamasqua Nails & Eyes £23.33 (Was: £35.00)
Illamasqua Alter Ego £25.33 (Was: £38.00)
The products that I got in these gift boxes are in the picture below …
They are …
Eyeshadows Lestat, Fame and Imagine
Nail Varnish Velocity, Veridion and Collide
Lip Gloss Fierce
Liquid Metal Electrum (2 of these)
Precision Ink Glister
I also brought
Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Resolute £10 (Was: £17.50)
The MOST amazing bronzy red coloured cream eyeshadow – if you have blue eyes then this is a must have colour, it makes them look SO bright!
Illamasqua has a sale on at the moment, some items are as low as £5 … buy the Liquid Metal eyeshadows – you won’t regret it, they are AMAZING!
Finally, I brought a Benefit set reduced in the sale.
Benefit Cabana Glama £19.00 (Was: £28.50)
This will be utilised more in the summer, when I have a bit of colour … who am I kidding? When I am trying to make it look like a have a bit of colour by using bronzer!
I love the neat packaging and cuteness of the Benefits sets, they also always have really helpful instruction booklets in them too to help you recreate looks.
