#TreatYourself - special offers that caught my eye

15% off English Heritage food and drink 
We're heading towards the end of the month yet again and August has really flown past for me! As it is the 22nd, today's post is a TreatYourself instead of my usual SmallSteps. (That series is on a two week break, but will be back in early September.)

Today I've got another five special offers and discount codes for you starting with a nice 15% off all food and drink products at the English Heritage shop until the 31st August. English Heritage stock beautiful wines and meads as well as good quality jams, chutneys and biscuits. And they'll even send a hamper if you suddenly remember you need a luxurious gift for a foodie. To take advantage of the 15% offer, simply use the voucher code EHDF40 at checkout. You will need to spend over £40 for the discount to apply.


Great reductions in the Twinings Summer Sale 
While we're thinking about food and drink, Twinings have got sales and discounts all over the place throughout August. You can get 3 for 2 on Loose Teas until the 31st of August with checkout code LOOSE, or buy 1 get 1 half price on Rooibos Tea from the 23rd to the 29th August with checkout code RED, and free delivery with orders over £10 on the Bank Holiday weekend (25th to 29th August) with checkout code HOLIDAY. Phew! And if that's not enough, the Twinings Super Sale is running until the 29th and there's loads of their beautiful crockery, tea making equipment, teas and hot chocolates at up to 70% off. I love this Jangneus tea towel and dishcloth set, reduced to £8 from £15.


A timely email from Ordnance Survey alerted me to their Summer Sale where you can benefit from up to 30% off technology items such as GPS systems, up to 40% off outdoor clothing and gear, and 10% off maps. They've got great bargains on brands such as Garmin, Craghopper and Vango  and, if you order now, your purchases might just arrive in time for the Bank Holiday weekend. Plus, to celebrate their 225th anniversary, Ordnance Survey are running a competition with 225 great prizes including the chance to go for a ride in their mapping plane!


New lower prices on
The Body Shop skincare 
Skincare just got cheaper at The Body Shop with new lower prices as standard on eighteen skincare products including clay face masks, washes, cleansers and this rather nice camomile butter. With free UK standard delivery on order over £25, it might be worth stocking up!
I noticed a Save £10 When You Spend £25 offer advertised on The Body Shop website homepage too, but 'Terms and Conditions apply' and I couldn't find anywhere explaining what these are. If you want to give the offer a go, the checkout code is 14664.


Large Polka Turkey Dish
at Emma Bridgewater 
By the time this post is published, we should have retrieved all our stored possessions from Sussex and found places for them in our new home. I am hoping all the tableware has survived nearly two years boxed away but, if not, I might well spend an hour or so trawling the Emma Bridgewater website for replace. I am not too fussy about perfection and have discovered fantastic savings to be made in the All Seconds section. This lists pottery which is still completely functional, but isn't quite up to the rigorous Bridgewater standards and so is being sold off cheaper. Discounts differ, presumably depending how Second each item is and the individual listings don't actually mention the problems. As an example of the potential savings though, this Large Polka Turkey Dish is reduced from £45.95 to £30 and a Large Veg Dish was also £30, but reduced from £52.95. There's free standard UK shipping with orders over £25 here too.


That's all my TreatYourself ideas from other companies for August, but I am I am going to add another for you and finish up with a discount code of my own for my Etsy shop. I am offering 10% off all purchases of £5 or more and the checkout code is WELCOME. The code is valid until the end of August. Remember, you only pay one lot of shipping, no matter how many items you buy together, so it makes sense to stock up! There are handmade items that would make fab Christmas gifts and lots of pretty craft supplies too. Enjoy your browse!


Feel welcome to Comment any other offers you know of and I will search out another post's worth for you all for September.
