January Sales Buys

I don’t usually rate the January sales, too much pushing and queuing for my liking but this year was pretty good. Shopping for clothes in the sale is never that fruitful so it was mainly beauty products that I got from Boots (first four items).

Soap and Glory Yum at Heart set. I had to get this as I’ve been dying to try out The Breakfast Scrub. The set was £8 and that alone is £9.45 so seemed worth repurchasing the Hand Foot cream. Will let you know what it’s like once I’ve tried it out.

St Tropez Taster Collection. I’ve never properly used fake tan besides an ill advised encounter with some mousse. I’m a bit tentative about using it but at £7.50 it seemed like a good buy. Inside is a Self Tan Bronzing Lotion, Body Polish and Body Moisturiser.

Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Style Loving Hair Kit. Pretty much bought this for the black box clutch but it also contains Glam Hair Morning After Dry Shampoo and Glam Hair Rock N Roll Extreme Hairspray (both 30ml).

Armani Code gift set. Described as containing orange blossom, Madagascar vanilla, honey (?!), and Sambac jasmine, this is a gorgeous fragrance, quite sweet but not sickly. Lovely box too!

Accessorize Nail Polish in Indian Ocean and Tuscan Clay. Stunning colours, a deep rich blue and tawny nude. Look out for product reviews and swatches.

Tess Daly – Daly Body Glow (from M&S). I’ve only tried this on my hand but it gives a fabulous light gold luminous glow. This will be perfect when it gets warmer on legs.

The main picture also shows a multi coloured Aztec scarf from M&S and a purse sized perfume from there called Gold Glow (citrus, pear top notes, jasmine, orange flower, honeysuckle, white musk and sandalwood). It does smell familiar but I can’t quite put my finger on what! Very fresh, light and citrusy though.

What did you guys get in the sales? Are you waiting for the last sale bargains?


  1. I've just stumbled across your blog and am really enjoying it so far :)

    I've also used the Daly Body Glow and really loved it. I was excited to see your review.


  2. Thank you! Just had a look at yours and joined via Google Friend Connect. Looking forward to reading more! Notice that we both love Wagamama's Chicken Katsu Curry and Pimms, yummm.
