The Best Cyber Weekend Promo Codes And Discounts - Black Friday Weekend Sales


Dress - in the sale - Ad affiliate

Ad affiliate links used throughout - In a blink, Black Friday has gone and Cyber weekend is here, aka the best weekend of the year for sales. What's meant to be Black Friday sales turns into Black weekend and Black Friday turned into Cyber week - for me, this isn't about buying unnecessary things, it's about buying investment pieces or things I've always wanted / have saved for, or, saving money on Christmas gifts.   Selfridges early Christmas sale dropped early and GymShark just casually dropped their Black Friday weeks before Black Friday, All Saints and Ted Baker soon followed, also dropping their Black Friday sales. It really has been one of the best Black Friday's for sales I've ever seen, with easily the best beauty and skincare Black Friday sales  ever!

P.S Kiehl's 25% off is live, use promo code EMKIEHLS 

On this blog post you can see one easy list of my top Cyber weekend / Black Friday weekend promo codes in one easy list, including my top buys this Black Friday weekend.

The Best Black Friday 2020 Investment Pieces - Best Things To Buy On Black Friday


Ad affiliate throughout - Black Friday gets earlier and earlier every year, get this page bookmarked and ready to go because sales are dropping as we speak (I placed a 50% off Ted Baker order last night and then ordered my dream coat in the All Saints sale and it's not even Black Friday yet). This year Black Friday or Cyber week, runs from Monday 23rd November until Friday 27th November, but so many favourite brands have already started dropping their discounts (Selfridges and GymShark - I'm looking at you too). There are certain things I wait all year to stock up on, I deliberately hang on until the Boxing Day sales or, Black Friday and Cyber week sales. I don't buy anything from my Christmas list or any Christmas presents until this week! Today I am going to tell you the Best Black Friday investment pieces, here are the things worth waiting until Black Friday or Cyber week to buy...

Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar 2020 Review + Chocolate Christmas Gift Ideas - Hotel Chocolat Christmas Gifts


Advertorial - Tis my favourite season of all, Christmas! I’m a sucker for all seasons to be honest but there’s something about the twinkle of Christmas lights, seeing parcels beautifully wrapped, eating my first mince pie of the season and of course, all the Christmas movies... honestly, I am just here for some positivity and sparkle this year. Another reason I love Christmas? Advent calendars. If it’s a chocolate advent calendar you’re after this year, this is for you. I love a beauty advent calendar but I like to have a traditional chocolate advent calendar too. Every year my Mum spoils me with Hotel Chocolat so today I am reviewing the Hotel Chocolat Grand Advent Calendar and some more of the Hotel Chocolat's Christmas collection. Open up for an exclusive Hotel Chocolat promo code too.

Kiehl's Christmas 2020 Review - Beauty Christmas Gift Ideas - Kiehl's Holiday Collection


Advertorial post - Tis the season for Christmas gifts eek! I asked on Instagram if you have been getting ready to Christmas shop and so many of you said yes, already woohoo! I know some people start Christmas shopping in October and some people like to Christmas shop a week before… so you can always bookmark this page and come back! I like to be organised but to be honest I don’t like storing it all in my house so I’m definitely a last minute kinda gal when it comes to Christmas, although I did go home recently and start putting Christmas hampers together for friends and family as it’s a mammoth task every year and I vowed to be better this year. Today I want to talk you through my top picks for beauty Christmas gifts from Kiehl’s, it’s the perfect time to get lots of favourites in very special Christmas editions or, gift boxes. If you are looking for Christmas gifts and stocking fillers, here is my guide and review of Kiehl’s Christmas gifts, this year with artwork by Maïté Franchi.

Ad affiliate throughout -
Today is the day of the GymShark Black Friday sale and yes, I know it's not Black Friday today but hey, 2020 has been a wild old year.

In true GymShark sale, there are some epic discounts so I thought I'd do a quick little review of my top things to buy from GymShark if you're stuck this year. Side note: their sale stuff sells out really quickly every year so add it to cart asap, I wont keep you too long!

Gucci Belt Buying Guide - Gucci Belt Sizing Guide And Review

Ad affiliate throughout - One of my most asked questions is 'what width should I buy in a Gucci belt?'  so today I thought I would write up a blog post reviewing the sizing and different styles of Gucci belts in the hopes that it helps you decide which Gucci belt to buy. Gucci Marmont belts came into fashion and they're here to stay, years down the line, they are a great designer staple. Whether you decide to go understated with a small Gucci belt or big and bold, there's an option for everyone. Hopefully my Gucci belt buying guide and Gucci belt sizing and review will help you decide which Gucci belt to buy and no, you're not too late to the trend to get a Gucci belt as lucky for us, they keep bringing out new designs and sizes in the belts.

Some of the best Christmas gift ideas for everyone

With less than 50ish days until Christmas at the time of publishing this, it's fair to say, Christmas is creeping up on us very quickly indeed. My Christmas gift guides are starting earlier this year as it seems more people are shopping online earlier this year and trying to get organised so I thought it was the perfect time to start with my first gift guide of the year. I'm bringing you some of the best Christmas gift ideas for everyone... rather than making this particular guide gender specific (don't worry, they're coming too) I thought I’d put together a little guide to universal Christmas gift ideas so you've got some Christmas gift ideas for even the hardest person to buy for… the kind of gifts your Mum/Grandma/Dog/Grandad/Mother In Law and boyfriend will love, one of these will definitely tick that box. 

If you’re not thinking of Christmas just yet, these will be great for ‘I’m thinking of you’ gifts too. Keep an eye out for more Christmas gift guides coming soon and don’t forget to bookmark this blog post and come back to it. 

P.S Don't miss my gift ideas for everyone post I wrote up earlier this year for even more amazing gift ideas and the best promo codes, if you're looking for discounted Christmas gifts! Oh and of course, 
the best loungewear guide is here too! 

The best things to buy on Black Friday!
