Sale Shopping!

So, I haven't really done much sale shopping as I just can't battle all the people in the shops and I'm trying to be more 'selective' with my purchases (hah!). However, I did pop online on Boxing Day to have a little browse and I thought I would share what I bought...

High waisted black jeans - Urban Outfitters

Peace Ring - Urban Outfitters

Cest La Vie bracelet - guess?

Shirt - Urban Outfitters

Domestic Sluttery - Amazon

Fashion Illustration book - Amazon

Lauren Conrad Beauty - Amazon

Kardashian Konfidential book - Amazon

Kardashian Dvds - Amazon

All of my Urban Outfitters stuff came to around £65 which was amazing, especially the jeans as they were £60 down to £25 and they fit SO good. I love little bracelets and rings as they can really glam up any outfit, whilst still looking cool! I have a slightly unhealthy obsession for shirts and my wardrobe has a lot of different kinds in there. Personally, I find you can wear them in so many different ways in the day or evening and look as casual or as dressed up as you like. This one from Urban is really gorgeous and edgy, its a great length and has winged arms - amazing! Overall, Urban had a lot of bargains and was deffo worth checking out. 

The books and DVDs were purchased from Amazon as they had some great sales on loads of new releases and if you bought in bulk it was really cheap to get them delivered. As you can see, I love the Kardashians! (its actually on as I type this...) If you love them too, you should get the book as its full of very Kardashian style comments and advice. I also adore LC and have done since the days of Laguna Beach. I think she always looks amazing and effortlessly gorgeous, so if she can give me any beauty tips...I am listening! 

The Domestic Sluttery book was a bit of a random one, but it's also a really interesting read. It's full of room ideas, recipes, cocktails, vintage clothing and random advice of faking it as a domestic goddess. 

 A few pages from Domestic Sluttery 

I bought the Fashion Illustration book because I love to have a doodle (can't really call it drawing!) and I like how the fashion illustrations look. I'm working for a Digital Art company at the moment and I am surrounded by art and art books, so this seemed like a great way to unleash some creativity! (you can see my first attempt/doodle on my previous post here).

Drop your links below if you got some bargains in the sales, so I can be nosey and have a look!


  1. Firstly, I must say that I love your drawing :) you definitely have a talent there - it's lovely! Would love to see more! Urban Outfitters did have some great sale buys - I didn't go for clothes as I too am trying to be more 'selective' with clothes buying, because I buy so much stuff that never gets worn. I'm trying to buy timeless pieces that will never go out of fashion (we'll see how long this lasts!!). So I bought homewares from the UO sale, it came the other day and I am totally in love with everything - cute animal themed mugs, and a deer rug. I don't even have a house yet, but when I do it will be full of amazingness haha :) the Domestic Sluttery book looks pretty good, faking it has to be the way to go as far as domesticity is concerned because who wants to grow up!x

    1. Aw thank you! I love your blog, always hopping on to have a read so really glad you check mine out. I know what you mean, I am always ebaying stuff for like 99p and thinking why did I buy that?! Your future house will look amazing I'm sure, UO homeware is the definition of cool homeware. Haha I know, growing up totally sucks so this book def made me smile! x

  2. I almost got those jeans on sale! Love all your books, I need to invest in some.

    1. Amazon is def the place for new books! You will have to reign yourself in from getting carried away by all the coffee table books full of vogue covers and Kate Moss (if you're like me anyway!. If your tempted to still get the jeans and they are in stock, I recommend :) x
