Just that really, have a few pennies from today so am idly browsing the shops online. 😁

I knew I was getting money from my parents so bought a coach bag in the sale which arrived on the 23rd. I love it!

I'll be going on a lush rampage. I was almost over my addiction having gone cold turkey but my stepsister bought me a gift set and now I need want it all

I have ordered a couple of gift sets, heavily reduced, in the Space NK and John Lewis sales. Clothes-wise there's really nothing I need - there's a jumper I have my eye on in &OtherStories which annoyingly isn't in the sale, but I may order it come payday on Friday anyway.

I want a new bag for work, possibly a little rucksack as I often have to carry a lot of papers around.

Most of what I'm eyeing up isn't in the sales, other this a little clutch bag l. I may so treat myself to Lush bath bomb.

OH wants a tracksuit and some new trainers, again, both probably in the sale.

I bought a leather mini in oasis for £40 down from £70. I tried it on in the shops in November but decided it was too much for the amount of wear it will get . I had vouchers and money so it was freeeeeee..

Did Next with DD this morning. Didn't get a huge amount for myself: Jeans, PJs and a couple of jumpers. Also got some French Connection and No7 gift sets in Boots and a pair of boots and some perfume in Debenhams.

Nothing really getting me excited in the sales so far.

I've spent a small fortune in Cos (online before Xmas. Then H gave me a £200 Cos voucher [weep]), hit the shop today. Have bought some of the same things I ordered so they can go straight back when delivered, but the sale online was better.

A Lumea finally!

I had high hopes for the sales... wrote myself a decent list, even have 150 of Boots points to spend, but virtually nothing has caught my eye! I've browsed online, brought myself a blazer and two pairs of work trousers in the M&S which I'm sure I'll return anyway, but nothing I've seen online has inspired me to get off the couch and go looking in the malls

Got a pair of black wool trousers from Debenhams reduced from £75 to £25. Hope they fit

Got money from my mum so bought a new leather bag for work from TK Maxx. I assume it was the same price before christmas but I couldn't afford it then.

Jumper from joules
Cardi and blouse from boden
Electric toothbrush

Could probably do with a new work dress or two. And new jeans.
