I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely seen a huge spike in people partaking in weekend shopping! Even when I left for a weekend swim at 8.30 the other Saturday, there were already loads of vehicles on route to the nearest town – at 8.30am!!
But it makes sense with Christmas just round the corner, but for me I’d just like the calm to last a little longer…
And the only way I’m going to prolong the calm is to avoid the High Street at the weekend and opt to shop online instead.
Just recently I enjoyed a very pleasurable experience doing this for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I bagged myself some amazing bargains online – and I didn’t even have to leave my warm, cosy home to do so – a win-win.
As well as scouring the net to find blog posts that feature some great finds – fashion, makeup, homeware and giftware, I’ve also been watching a lot more shopping haul videos lately – to find present inspiration of course!
And as I’ve got a few, I thought I’d briefly explain what each post or video is about – and let you decide which ones you’d like to read (or watch) more in depth!

And finally, while I was in the mood for some High Street shopping, I made a few online videos of my own….feel free to have a watch of the bargains that I managed to find…
We’re now counting down the weeks to the big day, so all that’s left to say is happy Christmas shopping – and I hope you manage to bag some great purchases!
