It’s safe to say that I’m usually all about the fashion and beauty sales, however this year I’ve found myself browsing the Black Friday electrical deals and have been overjoyed with the treats I’ve discovered.
Over the course of 2020, I’ve found myself taking up a whole host of new hobbies: I’ve started running, I’m cooking more than ever before and I’ve developed a passion for embroidery and cross-stitching (mainly to pass the hours in lockdown and as a good way to de-stress). Of course, any of these activities require background noise - so podcasts and my Spotify library have become an essential for daily life.
Having been on the lookout for a reliable, high-quality speaker over the past few months (to elevate my listening needs) I was thrilled to see the Bose Soundlink Mini II Wireless Portable Special Edn Speaker reduced in the Argos Black Friday sale.
Bose is a brand I’ve loved for years. I already have a pair of the wireless, noise-cancelling headphones - which I use on my runs - and I cannot praise them enough. So seeing the Bose Wireless Speaker reduced down from £169.99 to just £99.65, my audio prayers were answered.
Now I can listen to my podcasts and music on a wireless, portable speaker which boasts a much better sound quality than my phone or laptop. It also has 12 hours of listening per battery charge - so no need to worry about it cutting out mid-playlist. Not to mention I’ve saved £70 in total!
The portable nature (it’s just 5.08cm high by 17.93cm wide by 5.86cm deep) is also incredibly practical. I’m looking forward to popping it in my bag and taking it home for Christmas (restrictions permitted), so my family and I can whack on some festive tunes and stay up late dancing - albeit with a fair few glasses of prosecco in us - until the early hours of Boxing Day.
It’s moments like these that we've missed this year and music has a magical ability to bring people together again, so a speaker seems like the ultimate 2020 gift - even if it is to myself!
