Boxing Day Sales Haul 2013

On boxing day I was up, and awake by 5.40am. See, I normally wake up early, but that was an ungodly hour, even for me. You're probably wondering why I even did this to myself? Well, my Mum was working 7-11am, which meant my younger sister and I could catch a free ride to the shops! However, it was only when we arrived, did we notice that only one shop was actually open. Next. So, yep, we joined that massive queue of crazy shoppers, in the hope to pass the time.

After what felt like forever waiting in the cold, we were at the front of the queue. Neither my sister nor I typically shop in Next, but I do love their homeware. So, that's where we were heading. I managed to find this adorable floral cushion for £4 and the mercury glass votive for £1. Bargain.

In Lush, I bought the limited edition gold FUN. This is usually £5, but was half price as it was part of this years Christmas line. The other thing I bought was the Best Wishes gift set, which was also 50% off. Which if I remember correctly made it £6.25 - but don't quote me on that, I can't find the receipt! I cannot wait to try Golden Wonder, as I've heard so many people mention it. 

These technically weren't in the sale, but I bought these in the 99p store. We popped in, to take shelter from the rain, and these were just sat there on the shelf. Bargain. I've heard so many good things about the Bee Strong line, so I'll definitely let you know what I think!
Boots' gift sets are currently half price, including their fragrances. I spotted this one reduced to £11.50, and popped over to the perfume section to give it a sniff. This surprisingly smells amazing - well done Nicki Minaj! I love that this set comes with a mini rollerball, as well as the perfume itself!

And possibly the biggest bargain of all. This gorgeous floral skater dress was reduced to only £5. There was only one in the store - which, how typical, wan't my size. But I thought I'd get it anyway - I mean smock dresses are really popular aren't they?! And I'm glad I did, as I love how this fits!

  13. I don't know how much 5£ is (being Canadian), but it definitely looks like a bargain from its original price! I know how it feels to not want to pass up a great dress that's just a few sizes too big haha! Great post :)
