New Year Sale Haul: Fashion & Beauty

New Year Sale Haul ASOS Zara Miss Selfrige Rituals Accessorize Fashion Beauty Dresses Necklace Earrings Beauty 2015

There seems to always be a sale on somewhere, whether it's Black Friday, a Mid-Season sale or just plain old New Year Sales. This haul was actually spread across a few weeks, one with a 30% discount offer from ASOS (obvs couldn't say no!) and a shopping trip down to Brighton over Christmas and New Years for a few products for the new year.

I'll start with ASOS as this actually came before Christmas, all those months ago now! Ha. I really didn't need this dress, but I spotted Samantha from Haylcon Velvet wearing this on her Instagram and couldn't resist. To justify its purchase, it's beautifully light for both spring and summer but an added thick cardigan and boots can work for autumn and winter too. Plus I do love a daisy and monochrome print!

The boring ASOS purchases were these two slim leg work trousers in black and navy. I'm fed up of wearing jeans to work, even though I am allowed to but sometimes a pair of smart trousers makes all the difference to your attitude and first impressions. Both shapes are totally flattering and the quality means it'll last a long time, I hope!

So I may be a bit late the the denim dress bandwagon, but when have I ever wanted to follow trends?! Miss Selfridge had a whole row of these denim dresses, down from £42 to £20 - so it was hard to say no really. Usually I opt for a lighter denim wash, but I think dresses look smarter and much more wearable in a darker shade. I'll be adding a polo neck underneath and black knee high boots for winter, then a pair of sandals and rolled up sleeves during the summer. Favourite fashion purchase!

Zara Striped Dress (Unfortunately I cannot find it online, but here's something similar!)

Unlike the denim dress, I was unsure of this Zara dress at first. Does it look too sack-like? Could it swamp me? Am I just a big zebra crossing? I ignored those doubts and bought it to try on at home. Now I love it, the dress does all the talking so all I'll need to add on is a necklace and shoes. I particularly love the bell sleeves and have to fight the urge to flap around my room when wearing it!

Accessorize Marble Necklace (Unfortunately I can't find it online, but it's in the sale with 50% off!) Accessorize 4 x Howlite and Tear Drop Stud Pack £6

Another trend that passed by me without a raised eyebrow is marble. I'll admit it does look pretty (probably the main allure to all these purchases) but it's better late than never! The necklace itself is quite long and I wore it in this OOTD last week, so you can get the idea. I'm a sucker for any Accessorize pack of earrings, because they're great value for money and there's always so much choice. My favourites are the marble rectangles and black triangles, proving I love my shaped earrings!

Rituals Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Gift Set (Unfortunately I cannot find this set either, but Marks & Spencer do have the Indian Rose & Himalayan Honey version on sale)

Last but not least, my proudest bargain moment (and also the blurriest photo moment, sorry about that!) I was lucky enough to pick up the Marks & Spencer Beauty Advent Calendar, which featured a mini Rituals Foaming Shower Gel that I fell in love with, it's the small things in life! Then when I was out shopping in Brighton, my mum called to say there were these Rituals beauty sets and to get to Marks & Spencers quick because there was only two left. Lo and behold I picked up the second to last one with 50% off! So far I have used the Body Scrub and Foaming Shower Gel, and adore the scent of them both. Full review of them all to come soon!
