Shop Talk.

Well I think it's safe to say I love shopping, there is something so fulfilling in treating yourself to things that makes you feel good, be that makeup, jewelry or clothes. For me its always clothes, well it is these days, a few years ago - not so much. Shopping used to be really crap, especially when you I was a self conscious plus size girl with only a handful of shops that actually stocked my size.  Since I started the blog shopping for me normally happens online, there is just so much ease in looking at what you like and knowing its just one click and a next day delivery service away from you. However we all know that sometimes postal delivery isn't has helpful as we like. Working all day often means I can't be in to sign for my parcels, which then means a huge ball ache of picking them up from the post office. Which of course is always shut before I get home. Urgh. I know you all the feel my pain girls, nothing worse than knowing that the one thing you wanted to wear is held captive in your local sorting office. Good news is, that there are options about where you can choose a nominated collection point to collect your goodies. Westfield London  being one of them kindly invited myself and some other mega babe bloggers to test the waters on their collect plus service lounge. Linked with a bunch of online clothing shops such as ASOS, Very, Office (to name a few) you are able to order your delivery directly to the Westfield Collect Lounge where you can collect your items and try them on in a very snazzy private changing room. Even better if it doesn't fit or you don't like it you can return there on the spot. For you drivers out there if using this service you are able to have 1 hour free parking too. Not too shabby aye ? I have to say I was impressed massively with the service and ease, and no I'm not just saying that because I am writing a post, I was genuinely pleased with how easy it was. I got to try the goodies I treated myself to in a changing room with those good mirrors and with the support of my other pals giving me honest advise on my purchases. I know going to Westfield may seem a bit of a mission but if you're like me and can't get to the bloody post office in time to collect your goods this may be a really good shout for you.
