Hey Guys!

I hope 2018 is being good to you so far! As I’m mentioned in my previous blog post, my love for online shopping has grown immensely over the past few months. I picked up these Nirvana tees from Boohoo Man as a way to test the waters of online shopping and I’m completely hooked. I’ve decided that in 2018 I’ll be doing more online shopping and showcasing hot items you could purchase online so stay tuned to this space this year!

Because of the numerous advantages and benefits, more and more people say they prefer online shopping over conventional shopping these days. The reason online shopping is so attractive to me is that there is so much stuff out there that you never see in store. There are many reasons why online shopping is better that retail shopping. Below I wrote a few reasons why I personally love buying online.

Better Prices

Everybody wants a good deal! I often find I can get cheap deals and better prices from online stores because products come to you directly from the manufacturer or seller. Many online shops offer discount coupons where you can save even more on your order. If you looking for great deals then it makes sense to look online.


 If you are like me, you love malls but dislike the crowds that come along with it. Sometimes I wish I could have a mall to myself when I’m shopping. Crowds force us to rush our shopping most of the time and often we forget the most important thing we wanted to buy as a result. Crowds also create a problem when it comes to finding a parking place nearby where you want to shop. Online shopping eliminates all the negative aspects of conventional shopping for you!


 You can get so many different brands and products from different sellers at one online store. You can get in on the latest international trends without spending money on traveling there; you can shop from retailers in other parts of the country or even the world without being limited by a specific geographic area. This is incredibly helpful especially if you living in South Africa and the latest trends are not being released here first. Online stores offer a better selection of colors and sizes than you will find locally. If you find that the product you need is out of stock online, you can take your business to another online store where that same product might be available.


One of my favourite things about online shopping is that you can do it at any time of the day or night. Suffering from insomnia? Well why not shop till you drop while still in your PJ’s at home! Where else can you do shopping, even at midnight, wearing your jammies? You don’t have to wait in a line or wait till the shop assistant helps you with your purchases. You can do your shopping in minutes even if you are bus. Its 2018! People even shop from their phones, and I’m not just talking about local online stores, I’m talking about international online stores as well. Online stores give us the opportunity to shop 24 x 7 and also reward us with ‘no pollution’ shopping. You even save the environment by not using any plastic bags!

Shopping online is probably one of my favourite things to do. In my opinion it’s the best thing since sliced bread and you should definitely give it a try and find new stores that match your style it’s well worth it! I’ve already been planning my next shop haha!

I love shopping online. For all the reasons you mentioned. Especially the point about crowded stores in malls. I honestly can’t be bothered to stand in line if I want to try something on. Another thing is that online stores pictures are getting better and better. Some even have videos now. The only thing you can’t do online yet is actually feel the materials lol

But it’s also very convenient if you have to return something. Again no waiting in line or explaining why etc.


Thanks Geno! I know what you mean about feeling materials. We like to see what were actually buying before we buy it.
