Online Shopping

It felt like a decade ago from the time I started my blog. My fingers are excited to write down all of my thoughts into words. I have waved my good byes for 2011, and 2012, the year of the dragons will be full of flaming experiences.

I intended to start my first set of blog this year a little different. I have wasted many New Year's Resolution for the last 22 years of my life and it is about time to kick off and make a difference, to enhance myself, both in and out. 

Moving on, I have been crazy about online shopping lately. My antidote for boredom. I shop at least twice a week online, I go after all kinds of trends as long as I know how to work it out then all else will follow. Although, I have not provided myself the time to take photos of the items I have bought which I don't think would be necessary. 

Online shopping can be fun but like all things, it can also be a disaster. What ever I buy is an investment for myself yet we all have the same aim which is to save big on any name brands. I enjoy venturing on different online shopping site, comparing prices and quality of the product. I see to it that the product is worth the price I pay. It usually takes 7-8 business days to get it and most stores gives  free standard ground shipment depending on their minimum purchase. If for some reason I am not satisfied with my purchase, I have 30 days to return them via mail or go to their store.

Pros of online shopping:

  • 24/7 shopping
  • No pressure in shopping
  • Saves more time
  • Tracking of shipping available
  • Large online shopping site offering store comparison

Cons of online shopping:
  • Unable to touch the merchandise
  • Greater chance of fraud
  • Greater chance of getting the wrong order
  • Exposure of your credit card security

Tips to follow:

  •  Know your online merchants well.
  •  Shop through reputable third party online shopping sites.
  •  Only deal with merchants who use secure transaction system involving credit card.
  •  Always check terms and conditions.

Extend your patience when you shop because great deals are everywhere. A true Fashionista knows how to shop. Be your own first rate.
