Sale Shopping Bargains.

I was pretty disappointed with the sales this year, especially at the Trafford Centre. However, we popped into Wigan and Warrington over the weekend and the sales seemed to be far better. I picked up some really exciting bargains so I thought I would share them with you.

Soap & Glory Powder Trip from Boots - Reduced from £20 to £10

I was so excited to find this. I've been dying to try the S&G  bronzers and blushes but at £11 each I thought they were a little pricey. When I spotted this little baby I was too excited, all three blush/bronzer/highlighters for less than the price of one!

Clarins Lip set - Reduced from £18 to £12
Clarins Winter Beauty Collection - £20 (with a Clarins purchase)

I am a HUGE Clarins fan, as you all know. I spotted this lip set in Boots before Christmas but it sold out before I could get my hands on it. I practically grabbed this off the shelf in Selfridges and I was too excited to see it had been reduced down to £12. 

I'm a sucker for a good deal and when the lady said I could pick up the Winter Beauty Collection exclusive to Selfridges for a tiny £20, I couldn't say no. You get a full size Hand and Nail treatment, body lotion, body scrub, a bath and shower concentrate (my fave), a mini lip gloss and a cute make up palette. Considering the Hand and Nail treatment is £20 alone, this is a pretty amazing deal.

Rabbit Onesie - Reduced from £20 to £10
Rabbit Slippers - Reduced from £12 to £6

Okay my obsession with rabbits is still going strong. I loved this rabbit print onesie ever since I laid my eyes on it. However, I couldn't quite justify the £20 price tag when I had a perfectly good onesie sat at home. My pug onesie has swifty made it's way to the back of my PJ drawer.

These slippers were too adorable to leave behind, they need no explanation, I just LOVE them.

Coat - River Island £60 reduced to £7.50

This has to be my biggest bargain by far. This was initially reduced to £30 in the sale however the poppers on the pockets have fallen off on the inside, which makes no difference to the look of the coat, but it does mean it was deemed faulty. If you've never discovered the River Island 'imperfect' rail before, it's well worth a look - an extra 75% off sale items!

Marks and Spencer
Butterfly Candle - Reduced from £15 to £10
Apivita Honey Set - Reduced from £10 to £5

I had a gift card to spend in M&S and I knew immediately that I wanted a new candle (I'm beyond obsessed..). I saw this beautiful butterfly candle in the sale and knew it had to be mine. I love that it's in a gorgeous ceramic jar and will look so pretty on my dressing table even after the candle has burnt.

I'm a huge fan of Apvita and their face masks are amazing. I was really impressed with this littler set - considering the face masks are £3 alone, I couldn't turn down this little baby.

I've also ordered some goodies from Lush's sale, I can't wait for them to arrive - expect a haul post!

What did you pick up in the sales?
