After having your mailboxes “attacked” by offers this week there can’t be a soul who’s missed out on the global discounted shopping phenomena this cyber weekend, officially kicked off yesterday, lasting until coming Monday midnight.

Speaking for myself it can almost have the opposite effect of wanting to shop at all being being met by flashing offers and promo codes in every direction, but over the years I’ve learned my do’s and don’ts when it comes to sales shopping. Keep focus on getting things on discounts that you’ve been eyeing for a while, refilling your already favourite beauty products, new luxurious bedsheets, look out for furniture and electrical deals, and don’t fall into the trap of stocking up with things you didn’t know you wanted just because the deal sounds too good!

See some of my personal top picks on discount this weekend above and I’ve listed some interesting online shopping sites below, and oh, look out for those shopping codes, not always as easy to find as the flashing discount number. Happy Cyber Weekend everyone!!

Sales picks up to 50%

Netaporter sales picks 16.06.2015 - The Northern Light

Summer sales has officially kicked off in Europe, just in time for summer to finally arrive, it strikes me every year how the sales conveniently coincides when the actual season begins, mind the lack of heat this year, now is the time to strike on those items you’ve been eyeing. Today Net-a-Porter’s summer sales kicked off with up to 50%, with additional designers and products to be added to the sales in the coming weeks. But unless you can allow yourself jumping mindless in the sales trolley, think a few steps further and invest in pieces that you wanna slip into right now but also carries you into next season and further. The latter explains my sales picks of today, mind the preach, but forward thinking has become my mantra (at least most of the time…). Happy sales shopping!

Denim jacket by Chloé, beach towel by Toteme, bikini by Missoni, twill shorts by Acne Studios, canvas bag by Victoria Beckhambracelet by Marnisuede pumps by Jimmy Choo, leather jewellery box by Smythson. (From 30 to 50% off)

Black Friday

Black Friday Picks-The Northern Light by Hedvig Opshaug

It’s Black Friday!!!
Celebrating a season of sales shopping and great retail offers with some of my favourite picks out there. My best sales shopping tip is to invest in classic timeless high quality pieces that could end up being staples in your wardrobe for seasons ahead, and avoid the trap of too-on-trend-at-the-moment pieces, though it can be very tempting. Think ahead and keep next season in mind, happy shopping gals!

Metallics

Ever since I looked through Ida Sjostedt’s Spring 2011 Collection I’ve wanted to add more metallics to my wardrobe, both silver and gold but not too golden if you know what I mean. As I cannot wait for the collection to hit the stores I’ve improvised and used it as inspiration.

I got this metallic fibers/viscose top on sales last week and I’m gonna wear it as a layered dress, Cos started their sales last week so run over there before all the goodies are gone.
