The Sales Haul

I'm back and feeling much more well-rested after my lil' Christmas break. I hope you all had a great festive season. Now after the few too many chocolates and the gifts have been exchanged come the sales. Ah the magnificent sales. I tend to stay away until Boxing Day's been and gone because let's be real, chaotic malls suck. I may have missed the best odds and ends but I still managed to find a few bits'n bobs that'd been taking my fancy. Now on with the haul...

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Soap, Limited Edition-This was one of the few Glazed Apple products that was left in The Body Shop, who have up to 40% off their seasonal releases. I actually went in to purchase something for one of my friends, the soap just fell into my basket. I jest, it had been on my wishlist for a while-I was just waiting until it wasn't full price. It smells heavenly, like Granny Smith apples. 

Kikki K Journal-I actually picked this up as one of my Christmas presents and have already written about it here. It isn't on sale yet but I think Kikki K usually discount their diaries around January so keep an eye out for it.

Kikki K Christmas Cards and Gift Tags-Kikki K have an awesome sale going at the moment. Aside from their Christmas stock being discounted, some of their recent ranges are also on sale. Discounts are from 30-50% so you're bound to find a bargain here. I picked up some Christmas cards which I thought were cute and also because I'd run out of cards and need to send one or two more (don't ask). Then I got gift tags because I'd run out of those too and liked these ones-especially those snowflakes. 

Vampire Weekend 'Modern Vampires of the City'-There's one thing you'll learn about me. I don't like paying full-price for a lot of things, especially CD's and DVD's. Unless I'm too impatient to wait for international shipping, I hold off on buying them until they're on sale. I'd been listening to this album on Spotify a fair bit over the last year and because Vampire Weekend are up there with my favourite bands, it had to come home with me. It is perfection. Vampire Weekend are always on my Summer playlists.

Hydrangea Ranger Card-I can't find this online *sad face* but there was a Hydrangea Ranger pop-up shop inside Widdess in Ponsonby and I finally made it there yesterday. As much as I would have liked to take everything home, I escaped with some cards, a mini poster and a few bits for some friends. I'm a bit obsessed with the Hydrangea Ranger brand at the moment and love to support them when I can, especially as they're New Zealand girls like me. 

The Fault In Our Stars DVD-Aside from Gone Girl, this has to be one of my favourite films I saw this year. It probably helps that it is adapted from one of my favourite books, stars Ansel Elgort, features a love of writing, stars Ansel Elgort. You get the idea..

Kikki K Gold Hearts Pen-Now this wasn't on sale but I used my student discount towards it so it was a tad cheaper. Gotta take advantage of that whilst I still can, right? It's not coming up on their website so I am guessing it may be new but they had a few of these pens with gold patterning. New year, new pens.

*Did you pick up anything during the end of year sales for 2014?


  1. kikki.K will be the death of me, I seriously want everything there! I stocked up on some lovelies from Lush but have otherwise restrained myself ... for now.

  2. Same! Kikki K & Typo actually. Haha I managed to keep myself away from Lush, somehow. x

  3. the kikki.k diary is so gorgeous! i've been too scared to step into kikki.k over the holidays because i know i'll end up spending far too much haha

    xx angela // the sunday chapter

  4. Isn't it pretty?? I've actually started using it already-despite it not being 2015. Haha yeah Kikki K is always dangerous at this time of year. I think they're bringing out a range with gold foil accents in 2015 too which is both a good+bad thing. x
