For Black Friday H&M did a great offer of 25% off and free delivery on all orders. I've really come to love H&M over the past year, or so, and I love picking up bits and bobs for myself and the children when there's a good offer on,or when there's something in particular that we need.
This is a very picture heavy post, so if there's any particular category you'd rather see I'm going in the order of home, beauty, my clothing and then baby clothing. I got some great things and 25% off makes it even more of a good deal than normal.
If you feel a bit like you're not quite in the Christmas spirit, yet, but you really want to be then I've got a quick way for you to suddenly feel more Christmassy whilst, also, being able to get some Christmas shopping done - Take a visit to Homesense!
We have been to Homesense every year, near Christmas, for the past few years and so much of the store becomes utterly transformed that it's hard to not feel like you've stepped in to a bit of a wonderland. As such, when the lovely people at Homesense asked me to pop in and have a look around, and offered me a voucher to do a bit of shopping, I was very pleased as I definitely felt like I needed an injection of Christmas cheer.
It's getting a bit last minute but if you haven't found the right advent calendar for you, yet, then don't worry, all is not lost, there's still time.
There's so many offerings out there that it can be really hard to pick what you want, especially when it comes to beauty calendars, there's just so many of them and so much variety. What if it is full of makeup shades that aren't for you? Or what if it's all skincare for oily skin and you have dry? Or, maybe, you've just not seen the right one yet.
If that's the case then possibly the Vintage Cosmetics Company '12 Days to a beautiful Christmas' advent will work for you. This calendar has 12 doors, rather than 24, so if you don't have it by the 1st then it's ok, you don't have to start it for another couple of weeks! Plus, all of the items are beauty tools, and accessories, so there's much less chance of something not suiting you, than with other advents.
You can pick the calendar up, still, from their website, here, and it's currently down to £45.50 rather than the previous £65, so you can grab yourself a bargain!
If you have friends, or family, with a baby then you'll undoubtedly have heard 'Well, actually, they have enough toys and clothes so I don't really know what you can get them for Christmas', sometimes you have to think outside of the box when it comes to gift giving when there's a little one in your life with uber organised parents (guilty!).
It's that time of the year again, the one where I share with you a fantastic gift idea from Hotel Chocolat. I say it every year, I think, but if you have a chocolate lover in your life I can't think of a better place to go gift shopping for them. I recently wanted to treat a friend for her birthday and was thrilled with what I was able to put together for her from the site - You know someone's going to appreciate a gift from Hotel Chocolat because they know it's something extra special!
