Boxing Day Sales 2016

For those who wait patiently until Boxing Day Sales to pick up the best value bargains after Christmas, here are some suggestions on Femeconomy approved brands offering excellent deals. I generally wait until the new year sales to restock linen, children’s clothes, underwear (because we all have our favourite brands!), beauty and cosmetics supplies, at a considerable discount.

So if the thought of getting in the car, fighting the traffic and then trying to score an undercover parking spot fills you with dread, never fear! You can shop from home, beat the rush, avoid the crush and support gender equality with our curated list of sales by Femeconomy approved brands.

*CONFESSION!* I have also snuck some fitness brands in at the bottom of the post. Y’know just in case you feel like making a New Year’s resolution, and need some motivation?

The Body Shop

Shimmer Cubes Violet Palette 50% off at $14.97

One of the essential ingredients is moisturising Community Fair Trade marula oil. This is what gives Shimmer Cubes such a creamy finish, helping it glide on smoothly, and making it long-lasting and crease-resistant. Dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, Shimmer Cubes are also suitable for contact-lens wearers, and those with sensitive eyes.

Stunning sleeveless jumpsuit, with halter neck tie. Elastic waist and top with cute side adjusters on the shorts. Beautiful details made in a vibrant soft rayon floral.



2 for $39 zip wondersuits

These wondersuits are so practical and versatile for small babies and toddlers, and come in the cutest range of patterns. My daughter lived in Bonds onesies for her first couple of years. We favoured stripes, so she looked like a tiny, colourful jail breaker.
