Just like that Christmas Day is over and the Christmas sales are upon us. Now I am not one to miss a sale, in fact searching out a bargain is a skill I probably should add to my CV. So I thought that I would compile some of my sale finds plus shopping tips and pop them on the blog. Plus this way you don't even need to leave the house to find a gem or if you do, you will be royally prepped for sale craziness!

I have also popped my most recent outfit snaps below with my new Whistles jacket, which I am in love with! It's the coziest purchase ever but definitely not one not to wear sale shopping, unless you want to feel like a walking oven. Anywhos, all my outfit details are below along with my sale picks and tips!


1. Wear an easy outfit to remove if you are clothing shopping, this way trying things on in the changing rooms is a speedy process.

2. Check the returns policy for sale at the till in case you get carried away buying the whole shop in store! (its happened many a times to me).

3. Take a snack! Shopping is hard work!

4. If you are shopping online and the website isn't working well, try the retailers app, sometimes the app can have less traffic onsite and is less likely to crash, it worked for me for the Erdem x H&M collab!

5. Take a pair of socks with you to try on any shoes on you may find.

6. Don't just buy an item because it is 50% off, think if the item was still full price, would you buy it?

7. Don't wear a coat sale shopping, just a light jacket. The amount of times I have nearly boiled over basically wearing a duvet shopping - not fun.

8. Know your sizes - if you have in mind the shops that you want to go to, check your wardrobe for items from that shop so you can avoid trying things on.

9. Check the fabrics compositions! - If a jumper for instance, has gone down in price and is super cheap, look at the fabric composition. Is it mostly acrylic or polyester? Does it look like it will wash okay? Don't end up buying a poor quality item for your wardrobe.

10. Keep an eye on trends! Take a look at the catwalks for the upcoming seasons on Vogue.com so that you can keep an eye out for items that are on sale and on trend for SS18.

There you have it, my top tips! I hope these are of help and happy shopping!
