Happy New Year Y'all

Hope everyone had a lovely time! I was pretty quiet on the blog front because I was too busy enjoying myself. Drinking myself into rum comas, sleeping my days away and eating everything I seen.  As you might all know by now I'm off to Austraila to visit my family tomorrow morning so I've been busy getting myself sorted for that.

Lucky for me River Island @ Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh wanted to help me get ready for my holiday and just in time for the sales!*

Sale shopping for some people can be stressful, hectic and pretty caotic so having a plan is essential.
  1. Have a plan
  2. One must stick to one's plan
  3. Think ahead
  4. Don't buy stinky stuff you won't wear
  5. Buy essentials
  6. Staple peices
Have a think about what you really need or invest in getting next years cosy cardigans or winter jacket. If you live in Scotland you may as well stock up for now since it's never getting warm.

My plan is holiday mode. I really grudge paying full price for swimwear and other little holiday bits because I live in a freezing country so these items only get worn once a year. This makes it easy shopping for me as I know what I'm looking for.

Popping into Fort Kinnard wasn't what I thought It was going to be. I had in my mind that it was going to be crazy like loads of places are at the sales but this was far from it. River Island was busy but not uncomfortable and there was so much to choose from! I knew I had to stick to my budget and shop for what I needed.

I managed to pick up a few little bits..

Sunglasses £3 
Top £8
Bikini bottoms £3
Scrunchies £2

Swimsuit  £7
Bikini top  £8
Bikini bottoms  £14

I really only needed little bits and bobs as I already have so many outfits packed and I was lacking in some swimwear. I never ordered anything online (silly coco) and leaving it so last minute meant I started to panic. Without fail River Island had these little gems hiding away. If you don't mind a good hunt like myself (I love a good bargain hunt) then make sure you pop into store. 

Ps see that swimsuit it's a size 11-12 years in the children section, although it was in the normal swimwear bit so apologies if your looking for it and can't find it. I'm super shocked because it looked like a size 8 and I never usually fit into normal sized swimsuits due to my weird long torso but hey River Island surprised me again!

Sale shopping is always a pick and mix and you can make it super fun, how did you think I got on?
