1. Leopard panel bikini

Where to buy: PrettyLittleThing

Discount: 50% off everything

It's getting warmer and this means it's time to purchase an obscene amount of swimmers. This Leopard Panel bikini from PrettyLittleThing is a personal favourite of mine. It hints to the current animal trend without going too overboard and is a great option for the summer season. Plus, the semi-high-waisted bottoms are super flattering which is a big tick in my books.

2. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Where to buy: Tarte Cosmetics

Discount: 30% off everything

If you haven't tried this concealer before then honestly, it's a game changer. If you have, then you know why. With 30% off Black Friday is the perfect time to test out some new products or replenish some holy grails. I'll definitely be stocking up on my Tarte Shape tape because who doesn't deserve a lifetime supply of concealer?

3. Bike short set

Where to buy: Boohoo

Discount: 50% off everything

I'll admit that it took me a while to jump on the whole cycle shorts trend. However once I realised 'if you can't beat 'em join 'em' I realised just how amazing these are.

A pair of bike shorts are incredibly comfortable and perfect for the warmer months. They're casual but when paired in a set can be dressed up for any occasion.

4. Woven earrings

Where to buy: Dissh

Discount: Spend and save. Spend 10% off $50, 20% off $100 and 25% off $200

Woven bags were a hot trend last summer. This year the trend has expanded into a range of other accessories like belts and even earrings.

So when we saw Dissh's spend and save sale these woven earrings were immediately added to cart. They're perfect for daytime and can easily transition to night making them a must-have this summer.

5. Floral spring dress

Where to buy: Princess Polly

Discount: 20% off with Finder's exclusive code: FINDER2020

You can't finish off spring and go into summer without a go-to floral dress. We're living for the gorgeous colour scheme and print of this dress from Princess Polly. The soft frill detail and adjustable strap mean this dress is not only fashionable but comfortable as you can tailor to your size.

6. Windsor Smith slides

Where to buy: Hello Molly

Discount: 15% off sitewide

I genuinly don't remember the last time I wore a pair of thongs (a.k.a flip-flops). Slides is where it's been at for me for the at least the last 2 years. However, my pair now has easily seen better days.

Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to pick up a new set and these Windsor Smith slides are an absolute vibe. I love the luxe look of the writing and time stamp. Plus, being black, it will be very hard to make these look dirty quickly.

7. Disney Christmas Pyjamas

Where to buy: Peter Alexander

Discount: 20% off sitewide

You can't shop on Black Friday without investing in something that's got a Christmas flare to it. But what's better than Christmas pyjamas? DISNEY Christmas pyjamas!

Everyone loves a bit of nostalgia and I'm still a die hard Disney lover. If you're not as obsessed with Disney then don't worry. Peter Alexander have a wide range of xmas PJ's to shop at 20% off.

8. Becca shimmering skin perfector highlighters

Where to buy: Cult Beauty

Discount: 30% off Becca, Limecrime, Jouer and Too Faced

The Becca highlighters are something of pure magic. Personally, the shade Champagne Pop is my favourite. These normally retail for $65 at Sephora.

However at 30% off from Cult Beauty who have cheaper GDP prices you can bet I'm stocking up on multiple.

9. 2019 diary/planner

Where to buy: Kikki K

Discount: 30% off store-wide for members

It's actually crazy that we're at the point of needing to buy 2019 diaries. I have absolutely no idea where the last 11 months have gone but hey, that's life.

Going into December and into the new year, it's time to get your hands on a good quality diary that can keep up with you busy schedule. My personal favourites are the Kikki K planners because these are prime quality. Plus at 30% they're an absolute bargain.

10.Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link Black & Nickel

Where to buy: David Jones

Discount: Originally $799 reduced to $499

Going into warmer months this is definitely a good buy. Not only is it going to be useful all year round but you're going to be hard done by to find a deal like this on a Dyson any other day of the year.

This is an air purifier, cooler and heater all in one glorious product and when it's Dyson, you know it going to be quality.
