Sensible Shopping Tips

I like shopping. I enjoy the process of finding something new. I am not an impulse buyer. I go for only things I really need, and all my purchases are always planned and budgeted in advance. Gone are the days of just splurging like there is no tomorrow. I guess is all part of adulting right?

I like to shop smartly, so I always go by these sensible shopping tips so I don’t waste my time or money.

 

Check the washing instructions

I always check the label for the washing instructions before buying. I tend to avoid dry clean garments because they are too expensive to maintain, except I really LIKE the piece.

 

No retail therapy

I don’t shop when I don’t feel good. Shopping when I am down is the fastest way to empty the bank account. I rather have a spa day, watch a movie, read a book or speak with family/friends, than shop.

 

Think about it

I think long and hard before I part with my cash. I work too hard to just throw money around so no impulse buying here. Before I buy a new item, I make sure I need it, I make sure it blends in with my existing wardrobe, I make sure I can afford it, and I make sure it suits me.

 

Shop around for bargains

I always aim to shop the sales, I don’t like buy anything full price. So if it is not urgently needed, I wait until it is on sale, then buy it then. Or I go to a designer outlet, where most items are usually discounted. There are a couple of designer outlets in the UK, so have a look around online, and find your nearest designer outlet.

Keep your receipts and leave the tags on

Now this is a very important tip. I have had to keep items I didn’t like because I was too quick to rip the tags off or misplaced my receipts. For example, I have a pyjamas thing going on, I like to have a couple of new pyjamas every year, and I got a few from a local store some weeks ago. I got them in my regular size so I didn’t think the fit would be wrong but it was. This particular pyjamas had a different fit, and it was a little too big, but I ripped the tag off before I noticed, so I had to keep it.

The moral of the story is to check it fits and you are very happy before you rip the tags or lose the receipts.

 

Do you have any sensible shopping tips to share?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emma Watson Covers ELLE UK Magazine March 2017

The stunning British Actress – Emma Watson is the cover girl for ELLE UK Magazine March 2017, and she slays the cover!

I love how simple this cover looks. And Emma Watson looks very beautiful in a natural way as always. I am happy to see she is back to acting after taking a year out to focus on her activism. It feels like I haven’t seen her in a movie in ages.

Speaking with Lorraine Candy, Watson talks about her new movie – Beauty and the Beast, taking time off acting for activism and everything else. Here are some quotes from her interview –

 

On taking a year off acting

‘It wasn’t about me necessarily proving anything… I was just thinking that I have this year to myself, so let’s see what we can do to ‘move the needle’ and make a difference.’

Good for her. We all should try to make a difference in our everyday life.

 

On her role in the new movie – Beauty and the Beast

‘For me, Beauty was the perfect, most joyful thing to do… There was something connected about Hermione and Belle, and it was good to be reminded that I am an actress; this is what I do. The film is pure escapism.’

It sounds like a great movie. I can’t wait to watch it.

On dealing with critics

‘It really toughened me up…There is a level of criticism that comes with being an actress and a public figure, which I expect, but once you take a stance on something like feminism, that’s a completely different ball game.’

One thing I know for a fact is that you can’t please everyone. So I live my life and do me unapologetically. And you should too.

This new issue of ELLE magazine sounds interesting. I will be looking out for it.

What do you think of this new issue? Are you a fan of Emma Watson?
