January sales - Next and Accessorize

Hello there,

The sales are finally coming to a close so I thought it was about time I shared some of the goodies I managed to pick up.

To be honest, I didn't think I was going to get anything much. I had my eye on a rucksack in Accessorize which was reduced (don't you love it when that happens?) but other than that, it was a pretty quiet few weeks. Then I ventured into Next to see what was left, and struck lucky.

Coat - Evans (24) (old)
Jumper - Next (20)
Jeans - Simply Be, Sadie (22)
Shoes - Next

This looks blue in the photos, but sometimes it's purple and sparkly and almost gold. I love it. I wanted something lightweight and squishy that was big enough to carry folders and a jumper and this is perfect. The handy front pocket also stops the normal scrambling for door keys dance that I'm sure we've all done... I've added some pompoms that I got for Christmas (also from Accessorize) however they seem to be a temptation for my mothers dog, so they may not last long!

When I popped into Next, I wasn't expecting to find anything. I love Next, but hate the whole post-Christmas sales frenzy so normally stay clear. This time though, I was lucky.

I picked up an orange striped jumper with an oversize patch pocket and a pair of shoes that made the other half shudder! They have to be in contention for the comfiest pair of shoes ever though, leather and in a rare half size, they're a perfect fit.

As sunny as it looks in these pictures.... we were dodging the frost and trying not to slip up! I don't think this patch of grass ever defrosted.

And finally, while in Superdrug, I saw this set in the sale. It does make you smell a bit like a gingerbread man - so it's just as well I love ginger.

So that's all my sales goodies. I think I was very lucky in some of my finds. The trick is try and buy things that you really need or will actually use and this time, I think I did.

Thanks for reading
