I usually go out of my way to get some Lush bits in the sales but this year I just couldn’t face it and I didn’t fancy trekking 40 minutes away to go to my nearest store in the hope of finding some bits. In previous years I was a women on a mission, determined to find the best bargain in all my favourite shops but this year I just slowed down and picked up whatever I could find that took my fancy, both online and in-store. I’m so happy with the things that I found, they are a random selection of bits so here’s my Boxing Day sales haul.
PIN IT!Bluebird Tea & Co
My sister bought me the Christmas SourcedBox for Christmas and it included a Bluebird Tea & Co teabag along with a coupon, I’ve wanted to try their teas for a long time now and took advantage of their Boxing Day sale and also got a further 15% off with my coupon as well. They only had loose tea in the flavours that I wanted so I bought two packs of the tea sacs so you can make your own tea bags, hopefully next month I can invest in one of their in cup infuser baskets to make things easier.
Snowball 50g –
The first on my list was Snowball as it just sounded incredible and right up my street. This blend contains chocolate chips, mini marshmallows and coconut flakes all infused in black tea, yum!
Mulled Cider 50g –
I love mulled anything and this one smells so incredible. This fruit blend consists of cinnamon, cloves, ginger and apple chunks, can’t wait to try it!
Strawberry Split 150g –
I love any fruit teas so couldn’t go wrong with this blend of green tea, apple, elderberry, strawberry and more. I managed to grab a huge 150g bag for nearly a third of the price.
Hey, Sugar Plum 150g –
This sweet blend is another fruit infusion bargain but this time of cinnamon and berries and just sounds amazing.
All the packaging of these teas are so cute, they tell you how long to leave each tea to brew to ensure the perfect taste and whether you can add milk or not. I will most definitely be back for more, love all these Christmas blends and so happy I managed to grab a great selection to try.
I only wanted to go to Boots to see what they had left in the Zoella Lifestyle section and as predicted the shelves were pretty bare. It turned out that the candles weren’t included in the sale along with everything else so I only left with a pack of the pencils which were just £2.50 and I’m more than happy with them. They’re so cute and fit in my stash nicely.
PIN IT!John Lewis – Olympus Leather Shoulder Strap
Chelsey from Through Chelsey’s Eyes shared on Twitter that you could get Olympus straps for half price so I went straight on to look. I picked up the Olympus Leather Shoulder Strap in Just Nude as I only have the chunky black strap that comes with the camera, this one is so nice and such great quality, the colour also matches my hand strap. Along with the shoulders straps they have the Olympus Leather Hand Straps available for just £7.45 as well. Such a bargain and something that I could finally cross off my wishlist so thank you so much Chelsey.
This shop was where I bagged the most incredible bargains ever. Just before Christmas there were whispers that Kate Spade items were being spotted in TK MAXX stores, if you read my What I Got For Christmas post then you will know I was lucky enough to snap up a Kate Spade set and I found more on Boxing Day. I found numerous Kate Spade iPad cases however I soon spotted a laptop case for just £14.99! It’s made from neoprene so it’s soft and spongy and although I’m not head over heals for the designs, it’s still pretty neutral and I won’t find a non-branded laptop case for that price without going on eBay. It’s simple and cute and most importantly it will protect my laptop.
The star of the show however was the Michael Kors iPad Air Clutch Case which can carry money and cards, fits all iPad Air’s and can be made into stand. It’s made from beautiful black saffiano leather and gold hardware all for just £16.99, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I spotted the last one hanging there and it snapped it up in a flash. I’ve been looking for a nice case for a while now and I love that this can be made into a stand as I can now watch YouTube on my iPad and work on my laptop at the same time.
PIN IT!I’m so happy with my sale finds this year, still can’t believe I got Kate Spade and Michael Kors cases for such bargains, my persistence of constantly going in store to check for bargains finally paid off!
