FASHION | The First Haul of the Year: Sales!


January is often synonym of... Sales! In the UK it starts right after Christmas, but in France we have to wait until the beginning of the new year to get all the good deals and discounts of the sales. I've been shopping here and there during the past few weeks, and I have decided to share with you some of the items that I got! I left out some items of clothing that are only sold in France and that you couldn't fint in other countries, but this is about all I've found. Let's dive in!

~ Cream Cable Knit Jumper, Topshop (26€ instead of 52€): I couldn't find a link to the Topshop website for this jumper, because I got it from the Galeries Lafayette department store. I guess you can find it in usual Topshop stores. It is a cropped cable knit jumper, and I love it! It is just what I was looking for - a cream jumper with buttons on the shoulder. This is a timeless piece, that can be work with anything: a pair of jeans, shorts, or even with a skirt. A winter staple!
~ White Lace Cropped Top, Mango (17.99€ instead of 35.99€): I can never resist a pretty lace top... Lace is my favourite thing in the world, and I fell in love with this cropped top. It has a sort of flower pattern, and a really delicate detail on the bust area. Obviously one has to wear something under it, but it gives a sophisticated, somehow vintage look.
~ Brown Buckle Boots, New Look (29.99€): for years, I've only been wearing ankle boots, because I find them easier to style and more comfortable. I was actually looking for a pair of brown ankle boots when I saw these ones in New Look, I found them really pretty and decided to get them after all! It makes a nice change for me, and don't you think this pair is super pretty? :) 
~ Orange Check Scarf, New Look (5€ instead of 12.99€): I got a new coat for Christmas (I'll probably show it to you in an OOTD post) and I really wanted a new scarf to match. As my coat is beige, I've decided to go for this burnt orange, red and greyish blue scarf. I love check prints on scarves, and this one is quite different from what I go for generally, in terms of colour. It is really long and warm, I love it!
~ Cinders and Yog Nog Bathbombs, Lush (5.10€ instead of 10.20€): after Christmas, the Lush Christmas range goes on sale, and that's always when I pick up some products - because after all, bath bombs are not a necessity so paying half price for them is always appreciable! There weren't many left though in my usual store, so I only got Cinders (which I love, it has a great cinnamon scent) and Yog Nog, that I've never tried before. They'll come in handy for hot baths these days!


These are all the things that have joined my collection in January. However there are a few beauty picks as well, but wait until February to read my first beauty haul of 2016! I still need to get one or two items that I've wanted for a while, this is happening soon! ;)

Did you find good deals in the sales this winter?

  1. I'm trying to steer clear of shopping. Especially clothes, as I have no more room for anything, so I decided to not look at any of the sales, but I have been very tempted. Especially now, seeing the lovely things you've got.
    Much love,
    Mona

    1. We always get so much clothes when we actually don't need them, but as you say it's hard to resist :( xx

  2. This year I was good at stopping myself, however it was really hard. Buckle boots are great, they will keep your legs warm when it is freezing outside :) Clothes you picked are pretty, especially the cream sweater. x

    1. Yes I actually got the boots thinking they'd be great to keep warm because the weather was freezing last week, but now it's already getting so warm in Paris - we don't know how to dress in the mornings anymore! xx

  5. Oooh I do love a good Haul! You got some fab items at fab prices. It's always so novel to purchase discounted items from Lush because they only have a sale once a year- in January! Great haul, Julia x

    1. I think Lush should do more sales, and and some of their normal line as well, not just the Christmas stuff! Thanks Georgia xx

    1. Aw thanks Elizabeth! I wish I had found the links to them though, it's hard with sales items to still find them on the websites. Lush bath bombs are the best :D xx
