Shopping the January Sales

The January sales are in full swing now and I am loving the bargains in the stores. There are so many deals available so if you haven’t started shopping, make sure you get on it. I got a few items from a couple of stores already and I still have a few more to get while the January sales is still on. Have you bought anything in the sales yet?

The crazy deals have kept me really busy. I currently have my eye on quite a few items and seriously lusting after them. If you thinking of getting some investment items this January sales, here are a few ideas for you.


Grab a classic leather bag

I have been very busy browsing and I am seriously loving the products on sale. Especially the very pretty and stylish bags. I am a huge fan of a classic leather tote bags. I love the simplicity of it. A stylish tote shoulder bag has the ability to wake up any look. So if you are thinking of the easiest way to wake up your wardrobe for 2018, grab a leather tote bag. Your personal style will thank you for it.

Get a classic coat

A warm coat is a great investment piece because you get to wear it almost everyday in the autumn/winter months. So it makes sense to spend a little bit more on a great classic coat. I have a few coats in my wardrobe already but having an extra piece won’t hurt. They are necessities and it feels good to splurge on them every now and again.

Some comfy boots

There are amazing bargains on boots going on at the moment. I have a few Uggs and I would like to get some more in different shades, if the bank account permits. I would also like to get some comfy heeled boots too. I have seen a few I like already and I think I will be buying them. In other to survive the chilly winter weather, some sensible but stylish winter footwear is needed.


Tights and more tights

I am so into dresses at the moment. That is all I feel like wearing this season so tights are so needed. I like to spend a tiny bit more on my tights so I get quality pairs. I have bought a few thick pairs already and plan to get some lighter pairs for when the chill reduces.

Stay Safe this Holiday Season

Happy holidays folks! How are we? Hope you all had an amazing Christmas? Mine was terrific. I had a swell time and received loads of presents. I have also missed blogging and writing. I have been off work since the 23rd and it has been a much-needed break. My holiday is still on. I am not back to business as usual until the new year. But I am slowly getting back into the swing of things.

We have been on the road quite a bit. Travelling here and there, and it has been incredibly busy over here. This holiday season has been super calm and it has given a lot of time to reflect. It is so easy to get carried away with the festive period and celebration here and there. But we need to always remember to safe and look out for each other.

This New Year season is a time to have good fun with your loved ones and stay safe whilst doing so. The staying safe part is so very important as a lot of us get carried away with the booze and even drugs. Being reckless is quite common during the holiday season. So it is important we remind ourselves of the things that do matter and where to get help if and when needed.

Here are 3 ways we can ensure we stay safe in the holiday season –


Eat before heading to the bar

Drinking on an empty stomach is very dangerous. It is the surest way to feel horrible and wake up feeling even worse. Do yours health a favour and have a good meal before having drinks.


Don’t have too many drinks

Drinking to stupor is never a good idea. So go easy on the drinks. Alcohol gets you dehydrated so water it down by having a couple of glasses of water in between your drinks. And avoid drinking too much and keep a good eye on your drinks.There are many resources available for anyone battling with alcohol or drug addiction so you shouldn’t feel isolated or suffer in silence. One of such resources is The Recovery Village, which offers a personalised addiction treatment so it is worth having a look on their website.


Remember to dress warm

It is freezing at the moment so remember to dress as warm as you can. Don’t leave the house with a warm coat and some weather appropriate sensible footwear. Especially if you plan to be out and about on the streets. It sounds like common sense but it amazes me how many people walk around in the middle of the winter night wearing very little clothing.


All these tips sound like common sense but I see many people everyday breaking these basic rules, especially in the holiday season. So please remember to safe stay as you enjoy the last 2 days of 2017.

Happy holidays!

Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I am seriously looking forward to spending some quality time with family members. And not have to worry about anything going on online. I want to be offline as much as possible and to be present to enjoy the season. It is the most wonderful time of the year.

I am also looking forward to the Boxing Day sales. The sales are usually so good so I am hoping I get good deals this year. I will be doing majority of my shopping online but I will also be popping into some stores to grab some bargains. I have a few stores in mind already. Will you be shopping this Boxing Day sales?

So here is me wishing you a very merry Christmas and a prosperous new year. Have a wonderful holiday. Remember the reason for the season. And be kind to someone today. Sometimes, the best gift you could give is a hug.
