Love the Sales

Love the sales is a website for people who love a bargain, or like me who don’t buy clothes unless they are on sale! I never seem to have the time to spend money on my clothes so tend to pick up bits and pieces as I see them. I was interested to find out more about the Love the Sales website, and see if I could find something in the Vera Moda Sale.

Using the website is easy, you don’t need an account and it isn’t a shop, you simply register an email, then fill in as much information or as little as you like. You can add your favourite labels and stores, with not just clothes but home and garden and pretty much everything in between. I thought about getting the boy something new, but he has more clothes than he wears, so instead thought I would treat myself.

Love the Sales was easy to use, and I soon found my way around, with some great bargains to be had. I live in Jeans so first stop was a new pair of dark denim skinnies. Love the Sales allows you to search for colours, sizes, labels so you only see the items that are available currently. I quickly found the right size and decided to choose some summer tops to complement my new trousers.

I chose a tunic sleeveless top with a high neck because I liked the pattern. A floaty summer tunic, plain green top and a rather nice cotton jumper for the chilly evenings. Because each item was on sale the total value of my clothing should have been £126.00 but cost just £58.00 saving me over 50%. Love the sales are not a shop so for each item you are redirected to order from a high street store or online retailer. Postage may be extra dependant on the store or collection options, but even taking this into account saving over 50% of the retail price is enough for me to keep my eyes peeled for more Love the Sales Bargains.

Next…Sale shopping

Next, Sale shopping, yes its 6am on Boxing Day and I will be up in the dark getting ready, usually quietly ready to leave for the shops. Ok, so the rest of my extended family think I am nuts, and they may well be right! But I do like a bargain.

I have been shopping at this time of the morning for the last 7 years, only twice a year but it has now become as much part of Christmas as the turkey itself. I have complete wardrobes of clothes for the boy, and am now buying a few age 12y. I have been caught out as his tastes change and angry birds are very much out, star wars is still in though!

Its time to treat myself, pick up the odd Christmas gift for 2014, and most importantly curtains! I had no idea how curtains could affect my sleep so much. There is something comforting when you can shut the world out with a thin piece of material. Being back in my bedroom is great after so long in the dining room. Curtains are at the top of my list, so watch out NEXT as here I come…
