My second parcel of the week, my fifth for the month, my eighth for the whole year! Okay, calm down. Calm down. It's only February. There's always room for more.
Hello again Mr. Postman...
Who knew how exciting it could be, this weekly affair with the mailman? The daily visits to the online malls? The thrill of discovering newly opened e-retails? More pretty dresses! Oscar fashions! Duchess of Cambridge makeover! Oh man the sales tactics! The bargains! Drop-dead discounts! Total must-have! Positively exhilarating. Downright therapeutic. Adrenalin shot.
Okay, calm down. Calm down. Remember the promise not to buy another thing online for the next few months until the trip. But perhaps a new beach dress till then?... I mean, look at the pretty packaging. These people mean business! You have to be a step ahead if you want to impress your customers, and most especially if you want to retain them. Tie a ribbon somewhere, add a free woven bag, and I'm roped! I'm not that difficult to please at all.
No secret now to where I was last seen...
Do you know that most things now can be found and purchased online? Amazing what technology can do these days. Even more amazing is the fast moving trend from the conventional mall window-shopping to hours of online browsing. Easy, fast, and convenient, although sometimes risky (where sizes or material and quality are concerned). Dresses, bikinis, tees, jeans, shoes, peep toe sandals, jewellery, perfumes, makeups, accessories of all kinds, house ware, kitchen ware, electronic goods, gadgets, car cares, gifts, baby paraphernalia, books, stationery, etc. You name it, they have it.
Awesome gadget bargains too, with free delivery
You know, it doesn't help that I have a little more to spend this season. It's as if they can smell my bank accounts! And while I should be focusing more on saving instead of spending, a little self-pampering or random gifts to oneself once in a while is allowed. Right? A tiny drop in the ocean. Won't even dent the pocket. Won't even feel the pinch. Okay stop rolling your eyes.
What? I settled my debts a year ago. So no poking on my conscience. I shop with a clear knowledge that most of the things I buy I may not need right away or will perhaps overrun my wardrobe or sometimes thrash or even gifted to some other if the shoe fits. I shop knowing full well that I can and will in fact, do it again.
Bought both my Nokia XpressMusic online in 2008 and 2010...
The world outside is currently busy campaigning and throwing
Just for heads up and because I firmly believe some good stuffs should be shared, here are some of the e-shops I tested and frequented:
Zalora (but I bet you know this one already...)
I Wear Sin
And the rest you can just Google.
No, I don't get paid for these links. But you, go ahead, have fun shopping!
