Finally sitting down after a day of celebrations because the first born turned 12 today. I told him as I tucked him into bed that I was more tired after today's fun than I was on that day back in 2004 but I was definitely less bewildered....how that first born turns your world upside down?!
Anyway, being exhausted meant I properly sat down and as the rugby was on, I decided to do some online browsing. Which led to me spotting that some great sales have started so I thought I'd do a quick round up of some of the bargains I found....
Starting with Topshop where I saw WAY too many shoes. Look away now if you have shoe issues like me as you'll end up buying 4 pairs before you know it.
Fluffy Leopard Print Sweatshirt - £15, Textured Side Split Top - £20, Fleur Three Strap Round Toe Shoe - £15
Premium Slouchy Suit Blazer - £40, Vision Stud Ballet Shoes - £10, Leather Boxy Cross Body Bag - £15
Standard delivery is free all weekend in Topshop too!
Moving on and I have to say, I've not been feeling Boden at all recently. There are some more impressive bits coming through on the next SS16 drop but they're not in this sale. A friend down Moira direction is having a party on the 26th April and my sister is having a party in Tipperary on 10th May so I'm looking forward to exploring the range more at both of these parties. Email me if you want to come along too and need more details.
But for now, selected spring stock is currently at up to 40% off but I hear that it moves to 50% off on Tuesday...if you're not too fussed or the item you like seems to have plenty of stock left, then you might want to fill your basket and cross your fingers until then? Free shipping with orders over £30.
These three items are honestly the only sale items I'd consider getting right now - I fancy the cardigan in both colours!
Finally for this evening, Hush, where there's not exactly a sale but there's a discount....and they're rare enough to find outside of Summer and Winter sales. Use EASTER16 for 10% off (and free chocolate)
My military jacket from last year is now too big for me :( so I want to replace it with one of these which I think will work well as a throw on and layering piece without the weight:
These basic t-shirts get amazing reviews so I'm considering ordering a white one. My wardrobe is full of slightly oversized tops so I want to get a few closer fitting ones for wearing with culottes and skirts this summer:
And 10% off in Hush is the perfect incentive for me to buy my favourite Pomegranate & Peppercorn candle. I've tried lots of candles and this still beats them all for fragrance. You know it's going to be a good one when it scents your room before you've even lit it. I love that they come in smaller sizes too so you can try them before investing in a large one:
And a couple of off-line things - firstly, I've been told that the Gap outlets are down to 50% off now so the jeans I featured on my last post are even better value (sob) and secondly, there's 20% off ASOS with this month's Elle Magazine:
This is what I wore today for the wee man's birthday. Between making him his favourite breakfast (croissant & fruit), dinner (fajitas) AND birthday cake (Nigella's coffee cake), we went for a walk and a kick about. All about the practical:
Coat - Boden Everyday Mac (SS14)
7/8 Zipped Indigo Jeans - Piesak (via Sarah Jane Boutique, Magherafelt)
Trainers - Onitsuka Tiger (old)
Breton - Joules
So it's off to bed with me as I'm doing my first Parkrun tomorrow morning. Of course it's currently blowing a gale and pouring rain. I'll be sure to share a drenched photo on Instagram!
