With another Boxing Day conquered, the question of the day is Boxing Day shopping - is it worth it? Despite my best efforts to plan, I've realized Boxing Day success is more about luck and lots of will power. Also it's key to have a specific piece to hunt to avoid wandering aimlessly and save yourself from unnecessary purchases.
Therefore, this boxing day I had a clear goal in mind. Only to buy items that I actually need now or in the near future. This Boxing Day, I ended up leaving with a dress for my university graduation, a skirt for my internship, and a pair of flats that I've been dying to get. As well as some beauty products.
Can I say that it was a successful day of shopping? Yes! Only because I purchased items that I need and I did so with saving quite a bit. So, shall we explore my boxing day "scores"... and reasons behind the purchase and the amount saved! This is kind of like a Boxing Day Analysis...

♥ Beauty Items
I had a clear goal in mind and was in need on skincare products.
I purchased various skin care items that I will definitely review in my upcoming skin, beauty post and hair posts.
Kiehl's Sodium PCA Oil-Free Moisturizer, $24
Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, $35
YSL Singulier Mascara, $36
2 of Body Shop Shea Body Butter, $5 ( on sale from $8)
The total spent was $573 with $493 in savings. Was Boxing Day worth it? Yes and No! Yes, because I bought things items that I will actually wear. No, because I did spend a lot and the savings were not spectacular.I am wearing: ♥ Club Monaco Italian Cashmere Sweater ♥ BCBG Max Azria Tutu Tank Dress ♥ Michael Kors Watch ♥ Jewelry by LuShae color heart ring
I did play around with purchasing this tutu at BCBG but decided that my new Robbi& Nikki by Robert Rodriguez Feather Skirt was more age appropriate :) Although the tutu was cute and fun. The outfit had to be shared and maybe one day I will have enough courage to actually wear a tutu in public, but until that day... it was just as fun to play around with it.
