With the festive season fast approaching, it seems like the magpie in me has woken up. All of a sudden all I want to do is buy sparkly dresses, drink too much prosecco and dance all night. And with the party season fast approaching, I feel like all my pennies are going on new stuff.

It’s my birthday on Thursday, so I’ve had my sights set on the sequinned beauty from Zara. But with the Christmas crush already starting, I’ve been avoiding the Metrocentre for fear of suffocation. After putting it off for the last week, I finally persuaded myself into it on Saturday and headed through in search of my dreamboat of a dress, (sneaky peek in the photo), and keeping everything crossed that they still had my size in stock. Venturing to the Metrocentre on a Saturday, when almost four weeks away from Christmas, is not for the faint hearted. But since it’s the only place in the North East with a Zara, needs must sometimes. While I was pushing my way through buggies, teenagers and generally harassed looking shoppers, I did find myself lured into House of Fraser to browse their offers. House of Fraser is another one of those gems only to be found in the Metrocentre.. but sometimes their offers make it completely worth your while. Having sniffed around Mac, debating if I really did need another pale pink matte lipstick, I spotted some info on Cyber Monday. A bit like all the Black Friday offers, House of Fraser are doing their bit to indulge your seasonal spending and make it worthwhile. So on Monday 1st December, they’re offering a range of different discounts you can take advantage of! To make sure I don’t miss any, I’ve listed them below. So if you’re feeling brave, it could be worth a venture to the Metro on Monday. Or I mean you could just do it the easy way, avoid the crowds and shop from the comfort of your own home…
