Like Thanksgiving and Halloween – and this writer is prepared to fight you over this – Black Friday is an American tradition.
But because shopping is for the people, this glorious day – Cyber Monday – is the rest of the world’s opportunity to snap up discounted fashion and beauty merch from the comfort of our lounges / beds / desks.
And because ain’t nobody’s got time to trawl the interwebs for deals that’ll make you *and* your bank account grin like a smug festive idiot, we’ve put in the hard yards for you by rounding up our pick of the currently-active online sales worth pillaging.
