Summer shopping - hot buys

Summer shopping - hot buys

It's 10pm and an alert flashes up on my iphone. 'The Zara sale has now started' the app for the retail giant kindly tells me.

Bedtime is officially delayed.

Rather than getting my much-needed new mum sleep, I scroll through the site in search of bargains. It creeps closer to midnight...my shopping basket is filling up...

Yes it's that time of year. The Summer sales have officially begun and it's fair to say there are lots of lovely gems in the shops and online right now. Some are already in the sale, others I'm keeping a beady eye on.

Here are a few of my favourites:

 Newgate watch - this British brand do bold and striking clocks but also watches, having launched a collection last year. This eye-catcher comes in baby blue as well as a range of other colours.  Available from newgatewatches.com

Fuji Instax Mini 8 camera - who doesn't love instant film cameras? OK, not cheap to run but great for wallet-sized prints of your loved ones. Available from amazon.co.uk and Selfridges.com

Daily journal by Kikki K -  this chic stationary brand have lots on offer in their mid-year sale. This daily journal encourages you to jot down what you are grateful for and future goals. kikki-k.com

 

Neom Organics. I have been hooked by Neom ever since receiving their bath oils as a gift. The UK beauty brand has just launched this Science of Scent Therapy Test. This set of four dinky bottles are FREE from the Neom website; you just pay P&P. neomorganics.com

Zara baby sandals - buttery soft, tan leather sandals which are now in the sale. I'm pretty jealous they don't come in my size. Zara.com
