Heya :) Here’s another update on what I bought in the January sales. Normally I think whatever is on sale is just rubbish that the shop can’t sell, but this time round I picked up some goodies.
I headed to Athlone Town Centre with my Mam to have a look around and our first stop off was NEXT. There sale started pretty early in morning, I think it was about 5 or 6am? I wasn’t in shopping that early now! But I did pick up a cute lil Cupcake cushion that was €20 reduced down to €7.50. I got it because I got the same one as part of my Christmas presents from my Mam and Dad, so I got the other one so id have a pair. This year I'm hoping to re-decorate my kitchen and its going to be cupcake themed! I’m so excited to get it started.
Just thinking there, I seem to always get cushions in the NEXT sale, I bought a pair of furry grey leopard print ones in there Summer Sale. :P
Then we went to have a look in River Island. I had my eye on 2 scarves in there since before Christmas so I thought id wait to see if they would be in the sale. The main one I wanted was a black and white devore skull scarf with velvet trim in near the same design of the Alexander McQueen one. This wasn’t on sale though. :( So maybe I’ll get it next time I'm in town if its still in stock. The Alexander McQueen one is €175 and the River Island version in €39.
The other scarf I had my eye on was grey devore with velvet trimming also but had wings on it. I loved it as soon as I seen it. This one was on sale, it was €39 reduced to €12.
Excuse the creases :S
We stopped off in Gloria Jeans for a coffee. I’m so in love with there White Iced Chocolate with cream. It’s just so amazing, its kinda like a vanilla milkshake really. But it’s gorgeous. I can’t walk by the shop without buying one. ^_^
Next stop was The Golden Island Shopping Centre, I wanted to call into Boots to see what there sale was like. I was really good. All there Christmas gift sets were half price including perfumes and aftershaves.
I picked up a Front Cover Eye Make Up Bag which contained 2 pairs of party false eyelashes, (one is thick with little gems at the ends of them and the other are a natural to medium lash with glitter). A double sided mascara wand with gold and silver on each end, and another double sided mascara wand with black mascara on one side and black liquid liner on the other. I personally wouldn’t be mad about the liquid liner as I think it comes out very pale and faded. A pot of loose eye shadow pigment powder in “Cloud Dancer”, I think its quiet like “Pink Opal” eye shadow pigment powder by MAC, as it is frosted with a bright white / pink undertone to it. It also comes with a double sided brush and sponge applicator which would be handy to pop in your make up bag for when you’re on the go!
This set was €24 reduced to €12. Which I thought was great value.

And lastly my next and final stop was to the Calendar Club. I needed to get a new calendar as I forgot to pick one up before now. I wanted to get another Hello Kitty one, as my one last year as cute and colorful but as I had left it to the last minute to get one they were all sold out. BUT… I did find a really nice one, of one of my female idols…. a Marilyn Monroe one which I was really happy with. It has stunning pictures of her. She was one classy, stunning, elegant lady, who stole the hearts of many. It was €14.95 reduced to €8.95 so that was cool.
That was all my purchases for one day, which I think weren’t bad? Did you guys get anything nice in the sales? Tell me :)
