Bargain Haul

Everybody loves a bargain. There's nothing better than popping into your favourite store to discover a sale rail, packed with goodies! I went on a shopping spree in my local city of Norwich recently, and my lovely Twitter followers said that they'd like to see a haul, so here we are! Don't say I'm not good to you.

Let's get started!


My first stop-off was Accessorize. I find their jewellery slightly overpriced normally, but if there's a sale on, I always pop in! What caught my eye in the Norwich store was the makeup stand, where lipsticks, eyeliners, and eyeshadows were going for as much as 70% off. I picked up this lovely 'Gem Lips' lipstick in shade 04 Fuschia Gloss. It's very highly pigmented, with a slight sheen to it. It's not overwhelmingly glossy in texture, meaning that there's no danger of your hair sticking to it. Accessorize's makeup is also cruelty free, so this was a guiltless purchase. The lipstick was originally £5, but I got it for £1.50. Score!

Boux Avenue
Next I headed to Boux Avenue. This is one of my favourite lingerie shops as their products are just such good quality and they have never let me down. They can be pricey, however. Sometimes a pair of knickers alone can set you back as much as £14. Ouch. Imagine my delight to find these lovely floral briefs for 50% off! I bought them for £3 a pair - not bad at all.

If you've ever met someone who can resist a Paperchase sale, please introdcuce them to me so that I can learn their ways! I didn't do too much damage this time, I just picked up a pretty new iPhone case for £3 (reduced from £12) and this cute card, reduced to just 50p.

I couldn't believe my luck in Zara when I came across this stunning white dress! It's a size too large for me, but it was the only one left in the store, and I couldn't leave without it. It was originally £49.99 but I paid just £19.99. The dress is full length and adorned with lace panels at the waist and across the shoulders. It's just beautiful and perfect for summer evening-wear. Now I just need to find a party to wear it to...

The great news is that if I had purchased all of these items at full price, I would have paid £80.99, but thanks to the sales, I actually paid £30.99. Now if that's not a total steal, I don't know what is!

What's your best ever bargain buy? Which of my items is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below.

Until next time,
