Tag: online shopping



OK, so this weekend is definitely one of my faves for the entire year. And yes, I know that many people absolutely despise Black Friday and everything that it stands for, but I love to shop and I especially love to shop the sales. Black Friday is traditionally the day that follows the USA’s thanksgiving, but year after year it seems to be happening much earlier and goes right up until cyber Monday- which is the Monday following thanksgiving.

I’ve always been known to find a good bargain, so I wanted to share with you all the places that I’m going to be spending my pennies with over the weekend (online only of course, because who wants to be out in all this sales shopping madness)?! This is just the start of my Christmas shopping as I always wait until Black Friday to start, but hopefully I’ll be able to get the majority of gifts sorted.

For myself:

I’m in desperate need of some new shoes for a Christmas party next weekend, and I’ve already checked out Lamoda for some fab ones. You can get 40% off with code ‘TAKE40’. Warning: there’s too much choice!

For my best friend:

Slay my print have the most beautiful and perfectly thought out prints that I know my bestie will love (and I just hope she doesn’t read this). For 40% off use code ’40OFF’- I’ve already purchased a few this morning! I’ll also be shopping on Missfiga for her as they emailed me with a 20% off code, which just happens to be ‘SLAY’.

For my boyfriend:

You won’t need a code for Amazon, you will just see the offers that they have on each day, and they have a lot of great ones! I’m getting my foodie mad boyfriend a waffle maker for just £20 instead of £34.99 🙂

For my brothers:

There’s no chance of either of my brothers reading this so I can actually say what I am getting them, well I’m not actually 100% which exact product yet, but I’m going to get them a designer fragrance from Groupon –they have a wide range to choose from for under £20!

For my parents:

OK, so I wish I could do all of my shopping online and over this weekend, but for my parents I want to get them something specific for their new house and it just isn’t something that you can buy online, so I’ll be going out to a local store to buy it nearer to Christmas. I can’t say what it is in case they are reading, sorry!

I am thinking of getting my mum a little extra something from Elizabeth Arden though, they have 25% off with no need for a code… it is very tempting!

*One last thing… If you want to purchase any of my bags then this is the time to do it as you can get a whopping 30% OFF & FREE DELIVERY!!! Just use code blackfriday! at the checkout and remember to click the Free Shipping option for it to apply.

A day in London

A day in London

Earlier this month, my best friend and I got the train to London for a day of both work and fun. We absolutely love London and often have days in the city together (I didn’t enjoy living there but that’s not to say I don’t still love the place). I had a meeting arranged at midday and my friend had an event to go to in the evening, so we spent the afternoon wandering around Covent Garden whilst being photographed. It was very strange for me because I am so used to being behind the camera! I really enjoyed it though actually, and I think the photos look great!

I’m thinking of having one of the images of the two of us framed and hung up in my room- organising a photoshoot like this would also be a perfect present for your best friend, or maybe even a mother-daughter shoot! I shall put the photographer’s details at the end of this post, so if you do feel like booking one for yourself you can get in touch with her 🙂


Rocking our matching Katherena rucksacks of course 😉

^ This one is my favourite shot, I love it!

A huge thank you to Nadia Ivanova of Truly Natural Photography for these stunning images that she took and edited for me.
