In America, the Friday after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year. This has started to spill out into other countries as online retailers start to offer 'Black Friday' and 'Cyber Monday' deals as well. My inbox is full of notices of some of these discounts:
30% off good design, like this sleek clock, at Fab. The discount is taken off at checkout.
15% off until 2nd December at Accessories Online with code GIFT15. There must be someone on your list who would like this necklace from Alex Monroe.
30% off all products at Omorovicza. There are so many lovely things to get with the discount, like my beloved Thermal Cleansing Balm. A warning though - I tried to buy something this morning but I think the site is jammed with too many users because I couldn't complete check out. Not impressed.
HQ Hair is offering 20% off everything for one day (today) with code TREAT20. The catch is that the discount declines by 1% on the hour every hour so shop early. This is where I get my Kerastase volumising products.
