sale haul

this morning i convinced or at least tried to convince myself that i wasn't going or needed to go to the sales.
i sat down with a latte and read my emails,only to be severely tempted by all the gorgeous sale emails.
so resistance was futile and i braved the ice and cold to check out the sales.
it was crazy in some shops,i was getting very annoyed at times with the busyness and rudeness of some people,you'd have thought they were giving them away for free.

MISS SELFRIDGE- nothing jumped out at me in particular so just a quick in and out
REPUBLIC-rails to close together so you cant move so yet again a quick in and out
NEW LOOK- some fab items and i very nearly bought a coat at the bargain price of £12 but changed my mind as i was starting to get very claustrophobic and annoyed
 RIVER ISLAND-FORGET IT too crowded couldn't move let alone check out the items it was madness not worth the hassle
PRIMARK- after 2 hours of hustle and bustle i ended up in primark where i bought this little lot

black skinny trousers with stud detail and buttons on ankle was £11 i paid £5 cute long vest top £1
stud boots was £18 i paid £8
also treated my daughter to a cute pair of military boots for £4


What did santa bring?

Hope everyone had a great Christmas day and got all they wished for,enjoyed time with loved ones and eat lots.

Not only is it a great way of recycling your wardrobe it is also a lot cheaper.
I am a member of loads of swap sites but my favourite has to be
It is well worth a look,you can become a member for free but will be limited in the amount of swaps you can do unless you pay the £12 annual fee,but is worth it for the amount of money you save.
