Emma Sales shops the Sales


You may have been slightly worried about me due to the lack of Black Friday chat… Fear not, I’m back!

I’m sure you are well aware that I spent too much money on a pair of CHANEL shoes. And so Black Friday came at bad timing for me. I had to be controlled, and you probably are well aware by now that my shopping control level is zero!

On Black Friday I had 157 unread emails, calling for me. Somehow, I managed┬áto ignore all the temptation that they would contain, and I was proud of myself. I had managed to spend the whole Friday – OFFLINE.

On the Saturday I worked, and I kept myself busy on the Sunday… I really had done well – for me. If you followed my old blog then last year you may have read why I avoided them this year. I purchased two coats, a camera, a jumper a beauty advent calendar and some new black boots. I saved a great deal… but I also got carried away!


So as I mentioned, it was all going so well…

My best friend needed christmas party advice and we went into town to get her a party dress. Completely forgetting that the sales were still very much in full swing I thought window shopping would be easy.

We headed straight to House of Fraser, I knew there would be lots of choice all under one roof for my friend and I knew I would be safe here. Unfortunately, this is when I noticed that 25% off was still in place and it was made worse by the fact it was last day and last chance!

I turned to my “friend” and said that I absolutely can not send any money. She was not a good friend because the moment I stepped inside Whistles… there was a problem.



I tried on a few tops, what’s the harm in that I thought. Then I checked online and saw they were sold out online… Oh no, I can’t wait until next month because it will be sold out. My shopping brain kicked in… “If I just buy the top now, I will actually save money because there is 25% off.” I went to show my friend, hoping that she would persuade me that it isn’t that nice on and I didn’t need it.

However, the moment I stepped out she squealed out that she loved it and it suited me and Paris so beautifully! Oh No! No, Emma, don’t do it. Have some self-control and put the top back on the shop floor for someone else to enjoy.

Shopping Emma was well on her way to the till by this point, with a big grin on her face. I was here to shop for my friend and I am now shopping. The downward spiral has started and this is pretty much my addiction summed up!

When I got home, shopping Emma had been released. I remembered that I had an ASOS voucher and they currently had 20% off. I had a dress in my wish list pile and so I decided today was the day I would take the plunge.

You will see all these pieces soon enough, so keep your eyes peeled.

I would love to hear about what goodies you picked up in the sales!

Love Life,

Emma xxx
