A while ago J-P and I decided to brainstorm places to go to for our December break. We decided on St Francis Bay, but by the time we made up our minds – there was literally no accommodation left.
So, we decided to do something that confused the hell out of our fellow Capetonians: we went to Port Elizabeth for a week. On day one, we hit Bay West Mall which is their Canal Walk. A beautiful new shopping mall, with a plethora of shops – yet I couldn’t find one single dress. Eventually J-P sauntered into a shop next to Edgars, and called me to come and look at their sale.
I went up to the sale section, and I almost fainted. It turned out to be a River Island sale, with items marked down up to 60%. The sale was fully stocked, and I wanted EVERYTHING. I ended up buying two exquisite dresses for R800 in total. River Islands’ quality is amazing, and I’m so chuffed that I got these pieces!
Port Elizabeth was an awesome place to visit not just for this reason, of course. We discovered so many beautiful places, our favourite being Sardinia Bay. We swam in warm water every day, went to Addo Elephant Park and lived our best lives as the only CA’s in an EC world.
If today is your first day back at work, I hope it will be a good one! Here’s to a new year – may it be filled with sales.
