Best of the January Sales: Where to Spend Your Pound Coins

If you’re anything like me and didn’t join the hordes of shoppers attacking stores on Boxing Day (with the crazed eye of a gal with money to spend, of course) you may be thinking now is the time to invest in some exciting sale stuff.

Except…it seems like there’s nothing left. And I mean nothing. In fact, all I could find on a recent shopping trip were some tragic yellow espadrilles and a strange beaded bra. No thank you, H&M. No thank you at all.

In horrible despair (there were tears and screams of ‘WHY GOD WHY’), I decided to hop online where (thank the good Lord) I had a bit more luck. And I have decided to put together a few of my favourites to help a brother out. So, if you’re looking for some excellent bargains and are 100% not looking for beaded undergarments, then check out my top picks from the January sales. Awooooooga.

The Best of the Beauty Bargains:

I’ve not particularly shopped at Feel Unique before, but I’ve heard good things (mostly that there are many a bargain to be had, so basically it is a magical wonderland). Now I know that all of you die hard Boots and Superdrug fans may be thinking ‘yes, but I can buy Soap and Glory for half price at Boots and I can get a steak bake from Greggs while I’m at it’. Well, I will tell you this now free of charge: Feel Unique have some fabulous brands and products on offer at the moment – and not just Soap and Glory (or Sanctuary, heaven forbid). Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, they don’t sell pasties. Sorry.

All of these are over 40% off. Yes my son.

The Best of the Fashion Finds: ASOS

It’s not really groundbreaking news that ASOS sales are brilliant, but this year seems to be more excellent than usual. The jewellery especially is around the 50% off mark, and its always worth investing in ASOS shoes when they’re on offer. Here are some of my favourites, but it’s defo worth having a look to see what you can find! I’ve already seen some marvy pictures of half price ASOS threads on Instagram and Twitter, but there are many more beauties to be found.

The Best of the Electronic Stuff: Argos

Before you all get pervy and weird, I’m talking about hairdryers and what not. January is definitely the time to be investing in some new electric beauty goods, particularly if you are like me and the wires are hanging out of your hair dryer and every time you try your hair, it is like Russian Roulette. Argos is always your best bet for finding a good range of electronic products, and this year there are so many products over half price. Amazing!

So chums, what do you think? Have you seen any other online stores selling some amazing bargains? Or did you manage to hit the sale rails before all the good stuff went?

    I have found the store sales so disappointing this year and i was looking in them after boxing day!! Great picks, the expert face brush is amazing 🙂 xx

      They really are all a bit rubbish! I really want to try the expert face brush – I have the stippling brush at the moment and really want to expand my Real Techniques collection! At half price, it’s kind of rude not too! Thanks for your comment sweet xxxx

      Online sales are DEFINITELY the way to go, I can’t cope with sale rails (my tiny weak arms get too achey after about 1 minute). ASOS is amazing for sales, definitely worth getting involved 🙂 xxxx

    I couldn’t find anything decent in the shops either! Good old online shopping, what did we do without it?!

      I have no idea, lurking through sale rails is the bane of my life – nothing seems to look nice all smooshed up together! xxxx

    OMG H&M is horrendous for sales haha I don’t even know why I go in during the sale periods yuck!! Anyway online is where it’s at, definitely will check out Argos now xxx

    • Lauren January 8, 2014 / 9:32 am

      Hahaha it seems really sad getting excited about Argos, but they do have some epic bargains for hair stuff! The only thing half decent in H&M sales is the jewellery and even those mostly have horrible beaded/leather/generally weird rubbish pahaha xxxx
