Dear Santa…

It’s hard to believe it’s only two days away from Christmas. I hope you’re all feeling thoroughly festive and aren’t running around doing (too much) last minute panic shopping!

For once I can smugly say, I am 100% organised, wrapped and ready for the big day. Being from Australia, I have to post my gifts home the first week of December which is exactly the incentive I need to get my backside into gear and get on top of present shopping for Christmas. Whilst I can leave my Irish gifts until a little later, I find once I get the ball rolling it tends to help me stay on top of things!


One of the advantages of having shopping for my loved ones under control is I then have a chance to capitalise on the pre-Christmas sales for myself! Some would say cheeky, but I prefer smart. Consumers become wiser every year when it comes to snapping up the best value bargains, meaning our favourite retailers launch their sales more frequently, but also earlier than usual to keep people shopping up until the big day.

Naturally I’ve spent the past couple of days perusing online to suss out the best pre-Christmas sale purchases. I thought it only fair to share some of my favourite finds with you to possibly inspire your sale shopping… and in return if you have found any treasures, perhaps you’ll hook a sister up too!



The coat and knit I’m wearing in the above outfit are Topshop so be sure to check your stores if you love them as much as I do! Here are my top 5 picks:







I hope you’ve enjoyed indulging in my sale wishlist and hopefully you’ve found some pieces you’d like to pick up! No doubt there will be more to add after Christmas (I’m looking at you, Zara) so no harm in leaving a little ‘add to cart’ wiggle room… However in saying that, if you’re looking for me, I’ll be here brainstorming ways to make enough moolah to be able to purchase all of the above!


Happy Shopping, and of course, MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope your day is filled with joy, fun, laughter and copious amounts of delicious food!


Until next time,
