Can you believe it’s that time of year again!? The biggest sales of the season have begun! Personally, I much prefer to shop the sales online (it’s insanely busy here in NYC) so while I was doing some research for myself, I’ve put together a guide for you on how to shop black friday sales….efficiently & effectively. Honestly, it’s all a little overwhelming and a sense of panic seems to creep in, so I want to make it as smooth as possible for you guys because there are some seriously amazing bargains to be had.
Top Shopping Tips:
1. Do not start ANYTHING without making a list. Without doing this, you’ll honestly just end up impulse buying so much stuff you don’t actually need. On Tuesday night, I sat down, did a little research and compiled three lists: 1. Gift Ideas from friends/family, 2. ‘Going out out’ clothes I want for Christmas nights out and 3. Christmas Casual looks for my time at home in Ireland. By doing this, I found some great stuff! Feel free to take a look through these lists – there’s a discount on almost everything today. Some favourites are the Anthropologie Monogrammed Mug (25% off), River Island black heels (20% off), Boohoo Gold strappy sandals, NastyGal Black Jumpsuit (30% off), J.Crew Coat (30% off) and this ASOS Metallic Blazer (30% off).
2. Look for the sites that offer Free Shipping for an added bonus. Some of the online stores that are doing this are Nordstrom, Pretty Little Thing, Rebecca Minkoff and NARS. Oh and be sure to shop the more expensive items which rarely ever go on sale like Designer Handbags and Beauty Products.
3. Keep a close eye on social media. For the most live updates, be sure to follow the brands you want to shop from on social media. I’ll also be sharing LOADS of updates on my Twitter, Facebook & Snapchat (retroflame1).
