I'm trying to get into the habit of blogging not quite daily, but every two to three days, so I wrote myself a list of all the things that I want this blog to be about, and I'm going to make myself a schedule and try to stick to it!
Today's post is going to be about my favourite online stores, since I showed the list on my twitter and I got quite a few people saying they'd want to see this, along with reviews, day in the life photo blogs, etc.
As someone who suffers from extreme anxiety, I used to struggle going out of the house to the actual shopping centers, so I grew quite accustomed to online shopping, and have racked up a fair few favourites, so lets get this started, shall we?
Top of the list: Boohoo.
Based in Manchester, Boohoo was once not very well known, but now it's one of the fastest growing online retailers in the UK, and the merchandise definitely show why.
They sell everything from t-shirts, to shoes, to jewellery, to socks and tights. Everything I've bought from there (which, trust me, is A LOT) has been absolutely top quality, easy to wash, and so comfortable. I'm actually wearing one of their big, checked shirts as I write this. Very soft, very comfy, and very suitable for the horrible snowy weather we've been having.
At completely affordable prices (and the occasional amazing sale,) Boohoo took the top place in my list of online stores, and with their new Spring/Summer 2015 being released right now, I don't think it's going to be moving any time soon.
Next on my list is Pretty Little Thing.
This store was a recent find for me, but I've already bought at least four new outfits from them. Winners of the Fabulous High Street Fashion Awards in both 2013 and 2014, their merchandise is extremely high quality, and so very comfortable.
As someone who likes her clothes a little bit more, shall we say, quirky, Pretty Little Thing is absolutely perfect for over-sized t-shirts, gorgeous jewellery and amazing shoes. Not only are their products wonderfully fashionable and unique, but they are amazingly well priced, making this store my favourite for when I'm a little bit strapped for cash.
Of course there's a high street giant on here. It was one of my favourite stores when I was younger, and it still absolutely is now. If you're looking for something a bit more unique, New Look probably isn't completely for you, although they do have the occasional gorgeous little piece, but if you're looking for some simple black jeans or an amazing Christmas jumper, New Look is your place to go.
I swear by New Look jeans, wither it be their boyfriend styled for a lazy day around the house, or their coated, high-waisted, skinny jeans for a day out with friends, they are extremely comfortable, and very easily dressed up or dressed down.
Mostly though, I use New Look for their basics. Their vest shirts and leggings have been staple pieces in my wardrobe for about six years now, and I'm guessing they always will be.
I could rave on and on about this store until I lose my voice, but I'll try to keep this short and sweet.
The store is ran by twin sisters Natalie and Sam, and not only are they both completely lovely, their customer service and delivery times are absolutely flawless! Usually sites like this take a good week or so to get their products to you, but within three days of ordering, I'm normally being woken up by my post-man with another lovely parcel from them.
They do the most gorgeous crystal necklaces, chokers, bracelets, rings, beanies, shirts, mirrors, earrings, you name it, these girls do it. In my last post I was wearing one of their Rose Quartz necklaces, and I absolutely adore it, so I really really do recommend this store, be it for unique gifts for you or a friend, or simply to have a snoop around.
That's it for today, lovelies. I hope you enjoyed this post, and if you check out any of the stores, I hope you love them as much as I do!
