Online Shopping Mall – A No-Hassle Shopping Experience

The very notion about shopping has witnessed a remarkable change with the introduction of online shopping. Though offline shopping is still a popular trend yet home shopping has started gaining grounds. Those who are following a very busy lifestyle with hardly any time to visit stores to buy products are greatly benefited by online shopping. You can virtually buy all the products on earth from an online shopping mall. Right from camcorders, cameras, mobile phones, laptops, BP monitors, crockery to apparel, footwear, apparel, watches, fashion accessories, and lot more products, you can get all at an online shopping mall. It is the ‘no-hassle’ factor that an online shopping mall will soon attract more crowds in days to come.
With numerous online stores witnessing nascence, only trusted ones should be considered. To stay on the safer side, read the terms and conditions carefully so that you do not become a victim of fraudulence. Be more cautious on the payment aspect. You should have a secured Internet connection and as you enter the payment details, your computer should not go offline due to an electricity cut. When you use your credit card, make sure that it has a low credit limit. It is preferable that you use credit card rather than debit card.
Cheap shopping at an online shopping mall is feasible because there is no big overhead costs involved unlike an offline store where employees, space at a happening hub, interior decoration including shelves, etc., housekeeping maintenance, and more constitute a part of the price charged for any product. What you thus get via online shopping is free from any such costs and hence the wholesale price, i.e. a big discount shopping experience. The best deals can be availed at an online shopping mall if you know the tricks instead of directly selecting products and buying them.
Look for offers like combo offers, offer of the day, prize package, etc. besides comparing of products representing the different brands. You will then get hold of the best product at the best price. There is many a home shopping store that lets users use the advanced search tool for products within the preferred budget.

A Look at Logos of Famous Fashion Designers

We love designer fashion. We even love their logos. But when a product is covered entirely with the designer logos it reminds us of the country music comedy singing star “Minnie Pearl” who used to wear all her clothes and hats with the price tags still attached. When the entire item is covered with the designer logo we think it looks like crap. Sorry Louis Vuitton but you are the worst offender, followed closely behind by Gucci. At one time there was even a Cadillac series covered in Gucci logos and there are plenty of custom Rolls Royces covered in Vuitton logos. Excuse us, but that kind of excessive designer self-promotion is a cause to run for the nearest barf bag. Oh, but wait. The designers didn’t necessarily do this.
The rich who have more money than brains wanted this. The most famous excessive use of the Louis Vuitton logo was a custom paint job on a Rolls Royce by a German guy who owns legal brothels in Germany and bought himself the title of “Prince” by paying millions for Zsa Zsa Gabor and her husband of royal German lineage to adopt him. Louis Vuitton is suing him for unauthorized use of the copyrighted logo and claim that his use of the logo diminishes the value of the logo when used in this way. This is from the company that uses a gazillion of their logos on a small handbag. As far as we are concerned one “LV” logo per product is enough. Is it so hard for them to come up with a new design that is not suffocating their products with their own logo?
If rich people want to show everyone how rich they are, why don’t they just tattoo their bank account balance on their forehead instead? Excessive use of any logo is ridiculous and it is ugly. So we recommend a complete boycott of any product that has been smothered in designer logos. This is not so much of a protest but mostly because we think the items are butt ugly. Can you really see yourself going on vacation with all matching Louis Vuitton luggage? OK unless the luggage is cheap illegal Chinese fakes, you spent $10,000+ for it and that is obvious to everyone that wants to steal from you or maybe even kidnap you and hold you for ransom because a person that has this luggage is usually not the person that originally earned the money to pay for it.
People who actually earn the big money are more careful with it. It is their kids and lazy relatives that waste it. This stack of LV luggage in the airport or being loaded on board for a cruise just tells every nefarious person that you are good bait for a ransom. By having these products you are not really going to impress anyone that you would like to impress. A pig with lipstick on it, is still a pig. All you are going to do is draw unwanted attention from the wrong kind of people.
If you like designer items because they look good, they are made well, and you feel happy to have them, those are all good reasons. To have them just to try to show off is not.…

Alexander McQueen – One Great Fashion Icon

The world of fashion suffered great loss when Lee Alexander McQueen decided to put an end to his life on February 11, 2010. The cause of Lee’s death was apparently suicide. It was a rather a bold way to end one’s life but that clearly shows his attitude even towards his designs. And until the very end, the four-time recipient of the British Fashion Designer of the Year never failed to shock the world.
Born on March 16, 1969, Alexander McQueen was only 40-years-old when he died. Despite the very young age, he had already showed the world his special talent and precision in creating unconventional and unique clothes. No one could imagine that the designer he is today was a dropped out of school way back when he was just 16 years old. This young boy started his unique desire in traditional tailoring by working at Savile Row, one of the most famous shopping places in Central London, well known for its excellent men’s clothing.
Gifted with the natural talent in tailoring, Lee Alexander McQueen further developed his skills during his tender years at Anderson and Sheppard followed by taking another job at Gieves and Hawkes. He then started another learning journey with theater costumiers Berman and Nathan. According to McQueen, the most essential part of his skills was developed at the time when he was taking his apprenticeship at Savile Row. He gave the guys most of the credit for his expertise in designing fitting clothes.
As he turned twenty, McQueen was hired to work with Koji Tatsuno, a Japanese designer whose designs are primarily made from antique materials. The work didn’t last long as another brilliant Italian designer took Lee as an apprentice. In a very short period of time, Romeo Gigli noticed the boy’s future design concepts. After a long road of building his skills and professional experience as a designer, he decided to go back to school. In fact, Mcqueen took his MA at Central St. Martin’s College which is widely considered as London’s most prestigious fashion school.
Though Lee Alexander McQueen’s life has been a short travel, his journey as a fashion designer reached great heights where he could even see the pinnacle of success of the industry.…

Why Choose Oak Furniture?

When you’re choosing new pieces of furniture there are probably a number of factors that will influence your choice. These are likely to include the style, colour and construction of the furniture in question.
Some people will absolutely adore pieces that are made from oak. There are good reasons behind this, with oak being renowned for its strength and longevity. This is furniture that people choose when they want something that will last the years to come.
Sometimes you see items that are clearly out of fashion. Typically, when talking about furniture, it’s noticeable that many such products are made from materials such as glass, aluminium and other metals. The great advantage of wooden furniture is that it doesn’t really go out of fashion.
But would you be better off buying something cheaper? There’s no hiding from the fact that there are cheaper materials around. You can certainly pay less, but you have to consider whether you will be buying products that have been made with the same care and attention.
Are cheaper items likely to last you for as long? Whenever you see a product that does seem to be remarkably cheap you have to ask yourself whether it’s simply too good to be true. After all, costs can only really be cut during the manufacturing process by reducing the quality of materials used, or by using unskilled craftsman.
So don’t simply choose a particular dining table, bookcase or coffee table because it has the lowest price tag attached. Although this may seem like a sensible approach to finding bargains, it’s more than likely that you’ll end up with a low quality products that will soon need replacing.
It makes sense to opt for oak furniture if you’re looking for something that will last for years to come and will be cost effective as a result.…

Shopping For Plus Size Lingerie and Clothing While Still Saving Money

In today’s economic climate, everyone is looking to save money. You can continue to shop for new and sexy plus size lingerie and clothing and still saving some money in the process. You don’t have to sacrifice quality and style just to save a few dollars. Keep the following tips in mind and you will be sure to find some really nice plus size lingerie and clothing pieces to add to your closet or lingerie drawer without breaking the bank.
Store Credit Cards
One thing I have learned in saving some money is the power of the store credit card. Many stores such as Lane Bryant and Avenue track your purchases through their store by your credit card purchases. The more you use your Lane Bryant or Avenue credit card, for example, the more the company sees you as a loyal customer. Most even have some sort of loyalty program or bonus points program. Lane Bryant and Avenue do. Each time you use your store credit card you earn bonus points and receive discount bonus coupons worth real dollar amounts off your purchases. You also receive coupons monthly and sometimes even weekly giving you valuable discounts off your purchases. Make sure you do not go overboard. You don’t want to go into debt. Just use your store credit card for your normal spending on clothing purchases so that your spending habits can be tracked and coupons can be mailed out. A Lane Bryant employee told me that the more you use your coupons the more coupons the company will send you so make sure you use your coupons whenever you receive them. One final piece of advice, pay your store credit card off each month to avoid paying finance and interest charges which will render your discounts worthless.
Store Mailing Lists
Make sure you join your favorite store’s mailing lists and email lists so you will be notified of any special sales your favorite store is having. Many stores send bonus coupons out via email and regular mail so by joining their mailing and email lists you will be able to receive these special notices as soon as they become available.
Social Networking
A lot of stores send out special savings and coupons via their corporate Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter pages. So become fans and friends of your favorite store’s Facebook and Myspace pages. Don’t to forget to follow your favorite store on Twitter. You will be amazed at all the secret sales and coupon codes you will find out about by just simply logging into Facebook or Twitter.
Coupon and Shopping Portal Websites
There are many shopping and coupon websites that do all of the searching for you. By simply going to a site like Kaboodle or Tjoos you can find the most current coupon codes for your favorite online shops.
Simply Ask
Sometimes just asking a store if they have any current coupons or special offers will land you a discount coupon so make sure you send an email off the customer service if you can not locate any coupons or discount codes for your favorite store.
Keeping these simple strategies in mind will ensure that you can shop till you drop for your favorite plus size lingerie and clothing pieces while still saving money.…

Does Your Home Impress Visitors?

A home is a place to live, but it’s also about so much more. Many of us like to entertain family and friends too. As a result, a home may need to perform multiple roles. Is it possible to be comfortable for your family and also impressive for your visitors?
There’s a balance to be struck here. Some people like to allow their kids to make a great big mess around the home, without worrying too much about how things look. This needn’t be a problem normally, but it may cause an issue if you’re looking to host a wonderful dinner party. What sort of impression will you be creating?
Of course, it may be the case that you simply won’t be worried. You may be resigned to the fact that your house won’t look like something from a stylish magazine. But it’s certainly possible to improve the situation and you may only need a small amount of effort in order to do so.
It’s often worthwhile to spend this time tidying. You won’t just impress your guests as a result. It’s likely that you’ll feel more comfortable as a host. Although we may not wish to accept it, the reality is that we’re often aware that others are judging us. This may be true in the case of many areas of life. It certainly often feels like it’s the case when we think about home life.
But is there a danger of taking things to the other extreme of the spectrum? It may be tempting to always try and keep your house looking absolutely perfect. You may indeed by able to create something that really could be photographed for a magazine feature. This may leave you with a property that makes you feel proud. This all sounds like great news.
The danger here is that you may spend so much time impressing others that you actually start to miss out on some of the basics of life. You may, as an example, spend time tidying that might otherwise be spent with your children. Are you missing out on quality time as a result?
Could it also be the case that you are limiting the choices available to your family? Are they all too worried about ruining your spotless home? This is where that balance needs to be struck.
We all need to realise that there’s a limited amount that can realistically achieved. This is also the cause when we start budgeting for home accessories and improvements. These may well create a better place in which to live, but few of us have an endless amount of money available. As a result, we may need to look for bargains.
Internet shopping can make it easier to identify those bargain buys. It can mean that we get a little more for our money.
Try to create a home that works for your family and your guests, without spending more money than you really have available.…
