We are a week before Christmas and I have bought absolutely nothing (including Christmas presents). Actually this is what I do every year, because a few days before Christmas all the sales start and I think it’s a bit useless to buy everything at full price. I was intending to do all my shopping this weekend but I had to make an urgent trip to Cyprus which sort of ruined my plans BUT this little trip will allow me to do some shopping from some of my favourite European high street brands! (Read more for a little secret regarding the pricing of European brands in the UK!).
It’s Friday 9th December which means that we are almost two weeks away from Christmas. This also means that all the Christmas parties have begun and for us ladies this means shopping new party outfits, new dresses (most of the times), shoes and makeup, and everything else that an outfit can be made up of. A very large proportion of us get so carried out with all the Christmas advertisements and all the offers being sent by the shops that we end up buying a whole lot more than just one party outfit or what we actually had in mind. I think all this shopping craziness begins with the Black Friday sales.
