Boxing Day Sales - What Did I Buy?

Hello Girls! It's all over for another year. Christmas 2012 was amazing, I had such a special day with my family and got some amazing presents! I hope you all had a great day and you ate and drunk your body weight surrounded by the people you love. I was planning to do a separate post showing you what I got for Christmas in the next few days but thought I'd show you some of the goodies I managed to pick up in the Boxing Day sales first.

Getting up at 6am is a tradition for me, I love the whole excitement of queung up anxiously waiting to see what the stores have on offer. I ran straight to River Island and picked myself up two purses, a bag, leggings and a watch. I have mentioned I had been lusting over the Michael Kors rose gold watch but I didn't get one under the tree because my Mum wasn't sure which one I liked. However I picked up an amazing dupe of the one i wanted for £28 and I love it. I ran to New Look and picked up the cutest pair of quilted shoe boots for a bargainous £10 down from £35 along with a studded collar shirt and a cute new onesie (not that I needed a new one!).

Primark was slightly disappointing. I wasn't expecting a sale as it's dirt cheap which you'll know if you live in the UK, but there wasn't too much that screamed wow at me. I think my favourite purchase was the beige structured tote bag which is very similar to the one from Zara but just a fraction of the price at £12. I also picked up some tops and a small umbrella which I quite liked because of the stud detail on the fastener. 

Debenhams really disappointed me. I expected a much better sale on the make-up but there was no sale on cosmetics so I only picked up one YSL lipstick and used a voucher to pick up Hypnotic Poison by Dior which is such a gorgeous perfume and perfect for evenings. I stopped by a beauty retailer and saw that my favourite perfume Alien by Thierry Mugler was half price. I was lucky enough to receive some as a Christmas present but I felt it was an investment buy and bought two. So I now have three bottles which should last me a while! 

Did you pick up anything in the Boxing Day sales? Or do you hate them with a passion?
