Black friday… in the UK?*

Although traditionally American, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have seemingly seeped into English shops; both online and in store. A chance to get some Christmas presents maybe? Oh wait… I forgot most people have already bought their presents for this year. I’ve yet to purchase mine and if you’re in the same boat as me then I have a Christmas gift guide up on Monday to give you some inspiration. 

If you are going to go out and buy a few treats tomorrow or on Cyber Monday then look no further than the comfort of your own home! Shopping at a discount has never been so easy. Stylewe* is an online store that offers a range of independent designers on their site. Some of the pieces are so unique and the range of different designers on their website is fab (here’s a link to this brand called Other Crazy, I am actually swooning over their garments). Their website have some great Black Friday bargains so head over if you want to treat yourself to a few bits. 

Whilst Black Friday is traditionally known for discounted tech items, clothes shops make sure to get in on the act, slashing the prices on items that you might’ve been lusting over for a while. Aside from buying online you can alternatively head over to Topshop (savings of up to 50%) and New Look this weekend to bag some bargains. 

Leaving you with the best purchases in the world? If you still don’t know where to look there are so many other stores participating in Black Friday and Cyber Monday; it almost seems as if this American trend is getting slightly out of hand. When are the UK going to start having Thanksgiving? If Stylwe and Topshop aren’t enough to make you open your purse and reach for that credit card then ASOS might be the one. It’s worth having a browse before tomorrow and seeing what’s on offer because, well, I have a lot saved in my wishlist and it’s payday this week right? 

Going for clothing might not be your thing and you may be wondering if the are any beauty stores/brands that have any deals… well it’s just your luck because they do.  Anastasia Beverly Hills have deals running throughout the week and Beauty Bay is bound to have you clutching your purse in fear of spending all your money, online beauty is the way to go for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In the Boots sale you can expect up to 50% off including Soap and Glory – possible Christmas idea? The Body Shop is on a similar vein, offering 40% online and in store. 

Are you going Black Friday shopping over the weekend and do you take part in either Black Friday? I’m not going shopping because I simply cannot bear the shops when it is that busy but I think I might partake in Cyber Monday… if I see anything of course.  If you’re not from the UK do you have B

    I'm hoping to get some great deals on Cyber Monday with tech and such because I got some great steals last year! (: Black Friday is a little too crazy to me so I avoid it at all costs.

    I bought my new Vans old skools during the whole 'black friday' week for only £40! That Boots 50% offer is looking a bit dangerous errr

    I'm in the same boat as you- no Christmas shopping done yet at all! I think maybe one gift that was a last minute decision. I used to be really into it before I was married but I think it's not as significant as it used to be mainly because the start discounting everything earlier and earlier and even closer to Christmas! But I still think it's fun- if you can get up early! Sometimes it's energizing seeing everyone out and about but these days I'd rather just sleep in and buy online!! Def getting an Anastasia palette online on Black Friday 😊
