I don’t know about you, but I get a bit overwhelmed by the Black Friday madness. Usually, the first hint of an IRL sale and I run in the opposite direction to avoid the flurry of shoppers. When it comes to online sales, though, it’s a different experience.
I’m not one of these people who impulse buys just because one of my favourite sites has a sale on – I think before I shop. So instead, I’ve been adding items to my online wish lists this month with Christmas presents in mind. And I believe this is the smart way to tackle the Black Friday sales and get ahead of gifting. But if I happen to see something that I need (read: want) along the way, who am I to argue with fate?
I must admit, the 40% Charlotte Tilbury sale has made me want to shop for myself. And Net-a-Porter’s 30% off edit has some of my all time favourite brands – including Ganni, Joseph, Loewe and Rejina Pyo. But back to what I’m going to buy for my other favourite people. I’ve put together a Black Friday/Xmas pressie guide including the dream coffee table book, Dior and Tom Ford fragrances, timeless Thomas Sabo and Missoma jewellery – and they’re all discounted. Swoon.
