Christmas Bargains – Ted Baker, Ciaté and Nails Inc

This year Santa gave me this gorgeous Ted Baker Quilted ‘Jaide’ bag in Black. *squee* It has an amazing mirror shine, rose gold detail on the edging and zip charms, and the trademark Ted Baker bulldog print lining inside.

Today (27th) I did a tiny bit of sale shopping, sticking just to John Lewis. Whilst my parents treated themselves to new clothes I wandered around the handbag section and spotted this little beauty all on its own, practically begging for me to take it home…  This Ted Baker ‘Blinka’ card wallet normally retails at £35 but I snapped it up for £21 in this gorgeous bright pink colour, with that iconic lining inside again. It is available online here in green or purple, the pink seems to have sold out net-wide so I was so lucky to find one!

Enough of the Ted Baker porn, I also made two other sale purchases >_< This time I used the John Lewis website, and managed to get my hands on the two nail collections I’d been coveting throughout December:

The Nails Inc ‘My Nail Polish Diary’  and the Ciaté Nails Mini Mani Month Advent Calendar. They were both way too expensive for me to treat myself just before christmas… however, in the early hours of boxing day morning I secured the sets for £21 each, both reduced from £45.

It took a bit of soul searching to press pay, after all its just nail varnish right? ….except that they are all so pretty….they are both great brands they will last longer, have a great finish and …and…..and I just had to have them!! John Lewis have sold out of both of these sets online, but I found you can still buy the reduced Ciaté calendar here for a limited time. Nails Inc are being a bit naughty and selling the diary here for £30, without mentioning it’s a semi-sale price . The set was £42 originally at John Lewis, who then reduced it to £21 but have now sold out.

I was lucky enough to receive these Ciaté Baubles for Christmas too which can be purchased here for £15 down from £30, as well as a beautiful selection of high street polishes – so my nails are going to be the best dressed this year! Swatches to follow! What beauty bargains did you find?
