This week on Show Us Your Life, sweet Kelly is having us write about our favourite online shops. I’m not the most devoted shopper in realmlife, so I have to say that online shopping is often a complete godsend, particularly when prepping for special occasions like Christmas. My top five sites are probably:
Not on the high street: This site has grown and grown over the last few years and is chockablock with the loveliest items – homewares, gifts, wedding things, jewellry, baby things. It’s a great portal for creators too – my clever crafty friend Vixie has items on the site, clever girl!
Amazon: It’s big & it’s clever. I try to shop indie where I can in the real world, but amazon can often tempt me. You know how it goes – it’s late, you read a review of a great book or movie….you zip across to amazon and it arrives in the next couple of days. Amazon and my credit card are way, way too friendly.
Threadless: I love Threadless for cute, quirky stuff – teeshirts, hoodies, homewares. Even though I’m a grown up, I do still love a goofy, geeky teeshirt!
Boden: Boden (along with M & S) is pretty much my work uniform. Both brands make beautiful, well-made, quality clothes that look cute and can stand up to the demands of a teaching day (muddy hands, paint, up-down-up-down!). Boden’s cuts are great also – the tops aren’t too lowcut nor the skirts too short, which is grand.
The wedding of my dreams: I love this little site for wedding details. Had I the money to spare I could spend far too much on details like bunting and mailboxes, haha! It’s lovely to while away ten minutes and has certainly given me a few ideas!
I love online shopping and am so looking forward to finding some new destinations through this link up!
