But despite having little time for shopping, I still think - always have - that it is important to look through new items in your favorite stores often if you want to get the best things, since the best stuff generally sells out fast (or does that just happen to me?). When I had more time on my hands, and worked very close to my favorite stores, that meant I went into the stores I liked 2 a week or so, for a quick browse, but I simply cannot do that anymore, which means I always find only the stuff no-one else wanted when I go shopping now (in weird sizes too!).
Except online. There shopping can still be done the way I like it: Quickly, whenever you have the time, and without any pressure to buy something immediately. So it's really a savior for me, it makes it possible for me to keep up with the latest trends, renew my wardrobe on a regular basis and so on.
So that's an added bonus for me.
One of my absolute favorite stores when it comes to online shopping is ASOS. I have been shopping there for years (I don't remember how many years exactly, but I would say for at least 6 or 7 years maybe?), and still continue to do so, which you may already have noticed if you are a regular reader of this blog. Some of my most recent ASOS buys were these and this, for instance.
Being able to get everything from one single place helps a lot, since sometimes I'm in the mood for basics, something I want something from a brand I love... I don't always shop for the same things basically.
A great thing about ASOS is also that they offer free shipping worldwide, which is just amazing. I think it is one of the main reasons I always check ASOS first when I need something, because a lot of similar stores charge a lot for shipping, unless you live in the same country where the store is located. So if you think you spend too much on shipping charges alone when shopping online, ASOS is probably a good choice for you!
I've also never had any kind of issues with the deliveries. I get what I order pretty fast, and they pack everything really well, so no matter if you order beauty products or something that is more fragile, you will get what you ordered in perfect condition.
So I very highly recommend ASOS in every way. I obviously would not be such a loyal customer there if I didn't love what they're doing!
