Stress Free Shopping with Grandparents

Shopping is one of my favourite things to do. I enjoy shopping in the malls when I get the time. There is something amazing about going from shop to shop, looking at the pieces and accessories in flesh. I do most of my shopping online these days, but when I have the opportunity to pop into a mall, I go for it. I recently came across the Fenetic Wellbeing website and I was on the website for some time.

I shop with my mum a lot. We both enjoy it and the kids love any activity with her around.  Plus having an extra pair of hands with the twins whilst shopping is essential. It means I get to grab every item I planned to buy in peace, and not have to deal with the kiddies alone. It also means they get to spend time with their Nan, which is a win-win for us all.

Shopping with grandparents can sometimes be a bit of hassle for everyone involved. Especially when mobility is an issue. Which is why I am super excited to take part in this Fenetic Wellbeing Campaign. For those who have never heard of Fenetic Wellbeing, it is a mobility company who exist to provide customers with the right mobility products for their individual needs.

Spring time is here, which means it is finally time to spend my time outdoors. Which is why I am promoting ways elderly parents, grandparents and anyone with mobility needs can enjoy some stress free shopping.

Here are a few ways you can enjoy some stress free shopping with the grandparents this season –

 

Get a Mobility Scooter

If mobility is an issue, the best way to solve it is to get a good mobility scooter that would suit your needs. With a good mobility scooter, and buggies if needed, you are guaranteed to have a stress-free shopping session with the whole family happy.

 

Plan your day

I always like having a plan, so planning my shopping trip is important. I usually have a list of what I need to get so I don’t miss out any items. Also, I prefer large indoor shopping malls. Having all the shops under 1 roof makes it easier to move around and I don’t have to deal with the unpredictable British weather.

 

Go when it is quiet

I prefer shopping on weekdays in the morning when it is quiet. It is easier and quicker to move around when there are fewer people in the shops, so I target the quite times.

 

Make sure there are lifts available

Having lifts in the shopping malls are essential, especially with mobility scooters and buggies. I won’t bother shopping with the family in a mall with no lift.

 

Accessible friendly restaurants/cafes

We usually need a break midway into our shopping. Having accessible friendly restaurants/cafes available means it is easy to get in and out of a restaurant/cafe. So I make sure these are available before deciding on a shopping mall.

How to Shop for the Right Shirt

Shirts are wardrobe essentials for both men and women. And for this reason, many of us own quite a few shirts in various styles and colours. There is a wide variety of shirts to choose from in different stores. So it cam be tricky to shop for the right shirt. Here is how I go about it –

 

Shop for the right shirt by focusing on the material

Shirts come in a variety of styles and fabrics. And it can be confusing when deciding on which shirts to shop.

Style Tip – Opt for shirts with fabrics that are stretchy so you don’t lose it in the wash. But not too stretchy, or they will hug the lumps and bumps, you rather hide. It can be tricky to get this balance right. The only way you can be 100% of the fabric before you buy is to try it in the stores, so online shopping is a gamble when it comes to shopping for shirts.

 

Have a classic white shirt

A classic white shirt is a wardrobe essential, and everyone should have at least one in their wardrobe.  It can be worn to the office and dressed down with jeans for other occasions.

Style Tip – When shopping for the right shirt, it is best to go for good quality cotton for crispness. Anything less won’t cut it.

 

Opt for fashion shirts

Fashion shirts are still in vogue and I like them. I have a few in my wardrobe, and plan on adding some more to my collection. They are great for taking you from AM to PM with ease and style. Fashion shirts can be teamed up with skirts or trousers, to add some softness to a tailored look.

Style Tip – When shopping for fashion shirts, go for pieces that are lined to avoid see through issues.

 

I hope you find these style tips useful when next out to shop for the right shirt. Please share any style tips that may have worked for you in the comments section below.

How to Find Bargain Fashion & Skip the Junk

Everyone wants to look great! There’s really no doubt about that. But when you’re operating on a tight budget, you’ll need a lot of creativity and keen skill to find the best pieces at a bargain. That is why it is important to learn the ways of how to find bargain fashion & skip the junk.

The good news is that the options available for the fashion conscious is unlimited. There are so many places you can find the best bargains when it comes to fashion items. The only thing that you need to make sure you do is to focus.

The key to finding the best fashion bargain is to do your homework before you even start shopping. Here is just how you can do it.

 

Go through your wardrobe and have a clear definition of your style

Most times when you go shopping you go there with no clue as to what you are looking for. In the end, you buy things that neither fit you, nor appeal to your style. The worst of it all is that you spend a lot of money on a piece or an accessory that you’d probably never wear.

The best way to go bargain shopping  is to go through your wardrobe before you even think of going shopping. Take a mental note of what exactly you need and the true definition of your style. This will give you a clear definition of what exactly you are meant to look for when you go shopping.

 

Bargain fashion shop during off-season

Like I mentioned in the How to Look Stylish on a Tight Budget post, shopping during off-season is the way to go. Shopping during the off-season gives you a variety of choices to make. The only thing is that you’d probably have to wait for the coming season to actually wear the clothes. That means that you need to make sure you plan ahead before you do your shopping during the off-season, but it is definitely worth it. Shopping during the off-season opens you to quality clothing at discounted rates. You end up buy high quality clothing at a really low price.

 

Scout for coupon codes

Yes, there are coupons codes for quality and stylish clothing. These coupons give you the clothes at a discounted rate, saving you a lot of money, so they are worth looking into.

 

 

 

Find out when your favourite store will stock new merchandise

This will require that you go undercover, well kind of. Clothes stores stock regularly at certain times during the month. If you want to get bargain fashion, then you need to keep up-to-date with when they actually get new merchandise. When the store gets new merchandise, the old stock gets pushed to the back of the store and their prices drop considerably. This gives you access to quality, yet cheaper clothing.

 

Check out clearance stores for bargain fashion

Contrary to what some people think, you can actually find a lot of stylish clothing items from clearance stores. You may even get a chance to see a couple of designer outfits. The best part of it all is that they come at affordable prices, making you look stylish on a budget.
