The Savvy Shoppers Guide To Black Friday…


    Black Friday is almost here, and as ever, we predict it to be  the biggest online shopping weekend of the year in the UK. And with just 3 days to navigate those jaw-dropping discounts (just in time for Christmas),  we thought we’d make life that little bit easier for you with our guide to the best destinations, and what to look for while you’re there.

    Amazon, Harvey Nichols and all have big discounts – While elsewhere, Topshop, Ted Baker and Caudalie are providing all things fashion and beauty-related. So far, so good.

    Gadgets, beauty buys, decadent delights  – whatever it is you’re looking for, there is guaranteed to be something to suit.  Or, if like us, you’re after some seriously stylish wares to update your wardrobe in time for the party season, why not check out what we’re shopping for, below.
