My Boxing Day/January Sales Haul (Part 1)



I have to admit, I was one of those people who braved the crowds on Boxing Day. Thankfully it did pay off as I managed to find some real bargains, making the whole hassle and the hustle and bustle of hitting the shops the day after Christmas worthwhile. Once I got home I put my feet up and had a little browse of the sales online where I was pleasantly surprised to find even more deals, ones that they never even had in store. I couldn't believe I found so many items that I'd had on my wishlist all year and had been waiting pretty impatiently for them to go into the sales.


Soap & Glory Bright and Bubbly Original Pink Gift Set Was £10 Now £5
Soap & Glory Good, Butter, Best Gift Set Was £8 Now £4
Marc Jacobs Dot Body Lotion and Shower Gel Now £6
Nails Inc Nail Polish Diary Was £42 Now £21


New Look Black Metallic Tie Hair Scrunchies Was £3.99 Now £2
New Look Faux Fur Snood Was £10 Now £5
Accessorize Glitter Lydia Clutch Was £10 Now £5


Topshop MATTER Dolly Ankle Strap Shoes Was £28 Now £12
Topshop MAGICALLY Glitter Points Was £22 Now £12


Topshop MEX Tassle Slippers Was £22 Now £5


Topshop Lurex Bomber Jacket Was £60 Now £30

I've also naughtily ordered even more from the sales in the past day or so which have still to arrive, so expect a part 2 to this post at the end of next week.

Have you grabbed any bargains in the sales this year? Please leave me a link if you have posted about your sale finds as I would love to see what everyone else found.

And how do you prefer to do your Boxing Day sales shopping? Battling for the last few items in the store or staying at home, on your laptop, in your pyjamas?

    1. Thanks! :) I still can't believe I found some it. I think it was just a case of being there at the right time or them getting a little bit of stock in online when I was on, which I basically pounced on hehe.

  3. They didn't have the Soap and Glory body butter set in my Boots, I definitely would have bought that.. I love the Nails Inc dairy and the lurex bomber too!
    I didn't brave the boxing day sales, but I found some beauty bargains on the House of Fraser and Feel Unique websites :)

    1. They may still have the Soap & Glory body butter set online, if you keep checking. The last time it sold out they restocked it a few days later and that's how I managed to get it.
      I've seen so many things on the Feel Unique website but I think I've already went a little crazy in the sales this year hehe. :)

    1. They were one of the things I knew I would have to search high and low for and thankfully I managed to find the last pair in my size in my local Topshop.
      Keep an eye out on their website as they often get the odd pair back in stock. :)

    1. My Boots didn't even have a single Soap & Glory gift set even early on Boxing Day morning. Was quite lucky they got a couple of gift sets back in stock online unless I wouldn't have got any either.
      Thanks! :)
