Hey chums , i hope you have all had a lovely first few days of 2017 and feeling fresh and recovered from christmas. I am certainly not enthusatic to be going back to college but i am achieving well so it should be fine!
I have been looking forward to the lush boxing day sales for ages so when i became ill on christmas day i was so worried that i wouldn’t be able to get there and get some goodies. But alas i did mange to get to the sales but heck it was busy! So my local store opened at 10.30, so me and my grandad got there for 10.00. When approaching the store i saw a massive line and my heart sank, was thinking there would be nothing left, it would be so busy and i would have panic attack and have to leave… Anyway so it got to 10.30 and we where all allowed in the shop at once, there must of been at least 30 people in front of me and straight away they ran to the gift sets. They where practically fighting each other for them and some people where taking up to 10 gift sets each, yes you heard me 10! They where piled up very high. I personally thought this was unfair on other customers behalves as we did not have the oppurtunitys to purchase them, but from lushes point of view its all money to them.
So me and my grandad each grabbed a basket and literally ran over the where the main christmas items where on sale(If you weren’t aware it was 50% of all christmas and halloween items and any products made before October) it was absolutely packed and crammed in and my this moment i could feel a panic attack coming on. My grandad could sense this and he asked me what i wanted. I told him to pick up as much as he could. When it got a tad less busy i joined him back over at the table and saw with dismay that there where no shower gels, sleepy body lotion, snow fairy body conditoner etc. So i asked a member of staff and she said whatever is out is all the stock they had left, but then she added they had boxes of candy mountain bubble bars and went and got 3 for me. I think she could sense i was really anxious and this small gesture really helped me. Once getting as many christmas products i could i went around the store looking for 50% of standard line products, i managed to pick up two shower gels which was great! Just as we where about to approach the tills a lady asked me if i wanted a 500g bottle of bubbly and a sprout knot wrap as she didn’t want them, i took them and was so thankful that there where some lovely people in the store that day.
All in all the full price of what i bought would of cost £128 however half price it came to £64 so in my opinion this was a great saving. So 2 full baskets and 3 massive bags later i had left the sales!
So you are probably bored by now and maybe even of left this post however i am now about to show you all what i purchased!
In all i purchased 29 products so averagely each product costed £2.20 which is great!
