Boxing Day sales have kind of become a weakness for me the more I grow into this whole adulthood thing and get wise to the heartbreak of 'stuff I wanted before Christmas postal dates magically halve in price after December 23rd'. Yes, the cynic in me hates that the 'January sales' creep earlier and earlier every year and the number of advertising emails you receive about said sales borders on harassment at this point but dammit, there are deals to be had!

A biggie for me is usually the Space NK sale, which I get early access to as an Ndulge member. I usually enjoy a good Christmas Eve browse through cult brands like Diptyque and Kevyn Aucoin, pick up a few bargains and lay my merry head down ready for Santa. So this year, optimism and card at the ready, I browsed to find...

Two things. Two. And yes, I could be very holier-than-thou and say it was all down to maturity and discipline - I wish that were fully the case - but actually, the selection just weren't that great.

I AM very happy with what I did get though. The Christmas Diptyque candles are usually included in the sale and literally the last scent left in the selection was Liquidambar which, coincidentally, was the only scent I liked from this year's collection. I snapped up the miniature version for £17 for my desk through winter - I'm very much looking forward to this spicy infusion of nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar scenting the house!

Another Christmas stock I always keep an eye out for at discount is the Aromatherapy Associates collection. I love the bath oils I have from this brand and really do find their blends work like medicine - nothing quite makes me feel as relaxed as their Deep Relax bath oil, nor does anything wake me up like the Revive Morning blend. So when I saw the Star Jewels set on sale for £17, I added it to basket quicker than you can say 'scrub-a-dub-dub'. I am SO looking forward to pamper nights with these.

So there you have it - short, sweet, but a lovely treat. Did you pick up anything in the Space NK sale?

  2. Lovely little haul. I so want to try those candles. I have heard some great things about them. They have been on my wishlist for so long. I hope to change that this year!

  3. I just put my head down and ignored the sales altogether after Christmas but if there's anything worth picking up it's a Diptyque candle and Aromatherapy Associates bath oils! I picked up their set of 10 or 12 tiny mini bottles a couple of years ago and it's just incredible. They're SO expensive but you only need the tiniest bit (each little baby bottle does two baths). I've been stretching them out for the longest time but the set is finally coming to the end and I'm going to sorely miss it. Hopefully after Christmas next year I can pick up something again!

    1. Oh man, Jessica, you made those bottles LAST. I'm so liberal with mine - they're such an indulgence but SO necessary, and I really feel like every bottle really does what it says. One of my faves purely because it's so unusual is the Revive Evening - I usually like to do this one on a Sunday night to try and give me an extra boost going into Monday! T xx
