Ugg slides into Black Friday with this sweet deal
Known for its warm and fuzzy shoes, Ugg is giving us some good discounts this Black Friday. Whether you’re looking for a nice outdoor boot to keep your toes from freezing off this winter, or a comfy pair of sliders to wear around the house, Ugg has a deal for you.
Ugg oh yeah slide: Was £80, now £63.99, Ugg.com
Shoes don’t get much more comfy than Uggs, especially in slipper form, and you can save more than 20 per cent right now on this pair of oh yeah slides as part of the brand’s huge Black Friday sale. The very similar fluff yeah slides earned a spot in our round-up of the best slippers, where our reviewer said: “Although a little over the top, we were obsessed from the moment we put them on, and they instantly put a smile on our face every time we wore them thereafter.” They also lauded them as “undeniably soft and cosy”, and, thanks to the elasticated band, there’s “no sliding around”.

BaByliss hair straightener for less than half price
When we were still living from lockdown to lockdown, we didn’t have to worry much about our looks. But, now that we’re allowed to play again, we’re slowly starting to get into the habit of dressing up again: clothes, make-up and of course, hair.
For those who don’t have much time in their busy lives to spend on their luscious locks, we have a great Black Friday recommendation:
BaByliss opulence hair straightener: Was £80, now £36, Johnlewis.com
For super sleek locks in a hurry, look to this ultra-luxe looking hair saviour from Babyliss. With its “advanced ceramics” heating system, the plates heat up quickly and maintain a consistent heat across every section – so you might just get to the party on time. We featured a similar Babyliss model in our best cordless hair straightener edit, where our tester noted how “it performed particularly well at taming flyaways and creating a glossy finish.” With 55 per cent off right now, we reckon your hair will be in good hands.

Nintendo Switch bundle with ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’, ‘Just Dance 2022’ and a three-month Nintendo Switch Online membership: Was £378.99, now £284.99, Amazon.co.uk
