New season kit is slowly creeping it’s way into our stores but we can still pick up a few last minute bits and bobs as the sales draw to an end. It can be very tempting to plunge straight in at the deep end and snap up all the bargains but you really should take a few things into consideration first. If you are going to willingly walk into what I would confuse with a jumble sale, its advisable to go with a pre-planned mental list of what you actually need. Just because something has 70% off does not necessarily mean it’s a bargain. High quality basics and well made classics form the backbone of your wardrobe so try and focus on these rather than faddy fashion items.
Bargain buys to look out for:
AVOID - buying anything that is ill-fitting, even if it is an absolute bargain. It’s very unlikely you will get round to altering it or loosing the extra pounds you may need to, to squeeze into it! Personally, I've had enough of winter warmers. Roll on Spring!
Fact or fiction? “The thicker the cream the better it will hydrate the skin” FICTION! – A thicker cream can actually cause you more harm than good as an overdose of lipids can trap dead skin cells leaving a rather dull appearance.
Top tip If you are suffering from a fetching pair of dry scaly lips simply dab on some Vaseline, massage in with a toothbrush then remove excess. Repeat a few times until lips are silky smooth rather than representing a dead fish!
