What I got in the January sales 2013

Although I am quite the sucker for sales, I usually try to avoid the January ones as they can be lethal- both physically and for my bank account. 

But this year I did brave the January sales (although a few weeks in, just to be safe to avoid the hair-pulling and as much shoving as possible!) and I managed to bag a few lovely pieces, without going over the top!

Becca and I had a little photo shoot to help each other out with blog posts, so I'll include a few of the photos we took (not many serious ones- mostly stupid faces and laughing mug shots but I'll try).

sorry for having to look at my webbed feet- not too sure why I wasn't wearing shoes/socks. 

Firstly, I saw this jumper in Primark for £3 (reduced from £8 I think!). Its a cropped jumper with a high neck and zip detail at the back; I really like it and it gives a kind of 90s feel I think. Becca said I looked like I stepped out of the Spice Girls. I'm not complaining. 

Also, I got these high rise black jeans/jeggings from M&S for £16 (they were originally £29.50). I've been looking out for some nice black high waisted jeans for a while; I was going to spend £40 on some in Topshop but now I'm glad I didn't! These are so comfortable, have a great rich colour and wash really well too. 

This is me doing Flynn Rider's smolder. I'm getting quite good really. Sorry that's irrelevant. 

Another thing that I brought in the January sales was this top, also from Primark. Guess how much I paid... £2!!! I know I couldn't believe my luck. It is embellished with beads and sequins which makes it hang nicely and I love the purple/taupe colour. As its cropped I like pairing it with skater skirts, such as the Topshop velvet one I'm wearing in this photo (not from the sale!).

I thought that I had actually brought more in the sales, but I realised that the rest of the stuff I bought on that shopping trip was full price (typical me!), so I will save that for another blog post!

Hope you're having a lovely day wherever you are! Did you get any good stuff in the sales this January? Let me know by leaving a comment or tweeting me @LittleEllieMae !

  4. Any issues that may should be fixed should be inside spending plan. Sales individuals should be straightforward and honest with the prospects about this.cold call script

  5. Or on the other hand, did you utilize your sales abilities picked up from each one of those sales aptitudes courses and induce or inspire everybody to activity? When bringing the deal to a close I want to relax the word 'sign'.how to get past the gatekeeper on a cold call

  6. Because such an individual lacks sales experience they feel uncomfortable and incompetent in front of clients and prospects so avoid being in that position.pop up notifications
