ONLINE SHOPPING

Friday, 20 December 2013


This week I've been doing some posts that were requested on my Facebook page - thanks Mia Wallace for requesting this one! 

As a London girl who grew up with all the shops on my doorstep I never really got into online shopping. I tend to use online more as a research tool because for me shopping, actually purchasing something and walking out with the bag is half the fun. Sometimes though, the online sites are actually better than the stores. They often have exclusive deals, limited edition products, discount codes and it's nice to be able to see everything in one place. 

So here are my top 6 places to shop online and the products that I recommend from each… (look out for the exclusive Space NK gift with purchase just for my readers!)

- for 48 HOURS ONLY –
£50 off £200 Enter promo code XMAS50*  £30 off £150 Enter promo code XMAS30*  £15 off £100 Enter promo code XMAS15*
*Offer ends midnight, Friday, 20th December 2013. Excludes Alpha-H, Escentric Molecules, Institut Esthederm & Stila Cosmetics.

I fell in love with this site after meeting the founders over a year ago and hearing their inspirational story. Set up by beauty obsessives, Cult Beauty offers only the good stuff. Handpicked, they get it right every time and it is a pleasure to browse. The 'What's New' page is bookmarked on my browser and the products I always repurchase are the Therapie Himalayan Detox Bath Salts, Aesop Parsley Seed Masque, Aromatherapy Associate Deep Relax bath oil and Escentric Molecule Molecule 01 perfume. They also stock hard to find brands such as Anastasia Beverley Hills, DJV Beautenizer, Jouer and RMS Beauty

Receive a free set of 3 mini NARS Tinted Moisturisers & a mini pro prime when you spend over £50 using the code 'LILY20' at checkout (whilst stock lasts)

I'm a Space NK shop browser, but every now and again I can't resist the urge to check the website for new releases and limited edition products. I love every single brand Space NK sell and the shopping experience both in store and online is always pleasant. If you're an N.Dulge card holder there are often discounted shopping deals too, so I always jump on those! Some of the products that are currently grabbing my attention are the Diptyque Classic Coffret Collection, the NARS At First Sight palette and the Sarah Chapman Daily Essentials Kit. 

ASOS //
I struggle to buy clothes online, but ASOS not only do their own brand but also sell loads of other well-known brands so you can easily try them on in-store first if you want to. ASOS always have amazing discount codes going around so you can get discounts off brands that would never normally be discounted. There's always something to browse online and their daily edits are great for inspiration. My current ASOS loves are this Whistles Cashmere sweater, this cute iPhone case from Monki and this Lulu Guinness makeup bag.

SELFRIDGES //
Just like the store itself, Selfridges online has pretty much everything you need. I love the home department and the quirky bits they sell like this piece of wall art. The beauty section is amazing and sells exclusive brands such as Charlotte Tilbury and the food hall is just as good online, just look at this chocolate hamper

FEEL UNIQUE //
Feel Unique offer free worldwide delivery so that automatically bumps them up the list of awesome websites to buy from. They sell products from hundreds of beauty brands that  includes a hefty list of premium beauty brands too. Some of my product picks from the site include The Balm Mary Lou Manizer highlighter, Phyto Clarifying Detox shampoo and Dr Bronner's Magic Soap

URBAN OUTFITTERS // 
Urban Outfitters is one of my favourite places to shop but sometimes I can feel quite overwhelmed in the store as there's so much stuff! Their website is great and has all the good stuff in one place so you don't miss anything. I love their home & gifts section especially this photo album,  this hilarious bathroom guestbook and this left handed mug.

So what are your favourite websites to shop on?

  28. I often only online shop on topshop, new look and river island, and I've never really thought to branch out. Having read this post, next time I want to order online, I'll definitely take a gander at the sites you suggested :) x
