Online Shopping

Whilst I love a girlie day out shopping, I’m often left frustrated moving from one shop to another trying to find the item that I’m looking for, in my size.  It’s no wonder that in the vast majority of cases, I turn to online shopping.  It’s so much easier for me, as I can see all of the different pieces available with ease, by browsing and searching the web and I can compare prices right then and there.  Delivery is often free or at least far cheaper than a bus, train ticket or parking. The beauty of online shopping is that you can try items on in the comfort of your own home. The changing room fluorescent lights in shops are not always that flattering. Catalogue shopping has become more popular over the years and I can see why. I shop online at so many different websites including websites that are online… View Post

An Outfit For Every Occasion With Love The Sales

I am a bargain hunter and quite frequently I can be heard saying “I got it in the sale”. These days I am normally browsing the sales for clothes for the children. When it comes to shopping for me I am always last. Sales shopping online is easy and stress free. I love going shopping but the sale rails rarely have the sizes I want and after a few shops the children start moaning. I can spend ages browsing all the different websites, which is really time consuming. So when I was told about Love The Sales, a website that shows all the sales that are online in one place, I couldn’t wait to have a look. Love the Sales is a referral website and has almost every brand I could think off. Looking around the website, I decided to make some wish lists – my husband frowned at this as he knows… View Post

A Girly day out in Exeter

I was thinking about going to Exeter at the weekend for a few days and E had said that she wanted to come with me, I did highlight to her that I would be going shopping. She still wanted to come along, I think she loves having some time alone with her mummy and she also knew that we would be having lunch in Exeter. So Saturday morning arrived and I decided that after E’s swimming lesson we would go on a little girly trip to Exeter. As I don’t drive E and I always catch the train to Exeter, and living by the seaside means that the journey into Exeter is really picturesque. E always makes sure we sit on the ‘seaside’ side of the train. E likes to sit on her knees so she can get a better view and then proceeds to tell me everything else she can see, it’s all really… View Post

A fun afternoon at Trago Mills Newton Abbot

E is one of the many children that tend to get bored in shops, if we are shopping for her then that’s a different matter. This afternoon we took a trip to Trago Mills in Newton Abbot. Trago claims to be ‘the most family-friendly shopping site in the UK‘! In my eyes no shop is Emily friendly. We have visited Trago Mills on numerous occasions over the years to pick up things we need, the thing about Trago Mills is that is sells everything you can imagine, from car accessories to paint, bathrooms, bedding to toys, clothes, garden related items. It really does seem to sell a bit of everything. This is great but we plan to get one thing and normally ending buying other things. Today M (my husband) wanted to go as we needed a few things for the garden that we are trying to tidy and make it look… View Post

It’s all about going to the Cafe!

E seems to have an obsession about going to coffee shops or as she call’s them cafe’s. I can only think this has stemmed from her Daddy taking her to a café when she gets fed up when we are out shopping. She is a clever little girl, from her visits she now knows she gets a drink and shares a cake with daddy. I have never really been a part of their little café trips and what they get up to, I am normally the one left to do the food shopping, however I don’t mind if he takes her off for a drink whilst I am window shopping in Exeter. Trying clothes on with a three-year old in tow isn’t that easy, especially as E likes to open and close the curtains of the cubicle! The other week we were in the Range shopping and E spots a café and asks if… View Post
