I had an interesting conversation with a friend yesterday on the subject of shopping. I am most definitely a shopaholic, I love the thrill of moving from shop to shop and being able to find a wide range of bargains. My idea of heaven is still a High Street with a good mixture of stores selling a variety of products. But my friend firmly explained that my idea of heaven is her idea of hell. She elaborated that when she shops, she prefers a traditional department store where she can pretty much shop for the whole family, and for the household, in one visit. She also feels the same when it comes to online shopping. She would prefer to visit a site like Debenhams where she can find everything she needs and have it all delivered in one easy transaction. The good news is that shopping online in this way can also lead to a whole host of savings, some of which are not available in store.
If you are planning on shopping at Debenhams, I would always recommend that you take a look at the offers and voucher codes that are currently available at My Favourite Voucher Codes. (Debenhams have their own page of offers). Offers are updated on a regular basis and are very varied, they cover all departments and can be money off offers, free delivery options and also updates of all the current sales. There are also secret voucher codes, and the option of guilt free shopping as My Favourite Voucher Codes donates 20% of its net profits to charity.
I must admit the conversation with my friend did get me thinking about the convenience of doing all my shopping online using just one site. Currently I am shopping for my next Summer holiday which is in Cyprus in June. It also happens to be the destination for my brother’s wedding, so I have quite a checklist of items to buy. This includes a wedding outfit suitable for a very hot climate, new swimwear for myself and Joe, some new sundresses, a pair of sandals with a low or kitten heel suitable for the wedding, and tailored shorts for both Joe and my hubby Pete. After a quick browse it is obvious I can find all of these things at Debenhams, with up to 30% off swimwear and designer dresses, which is pretty handy.
I love the Floozie range by Frost French, in particular the Bardot style swimsuit below which is just so bright and tropical.
I also love this strapless printed costume from The Collection. It has tummy control due to a hidden panel in the front, and costs less than £20, making it a very pretty bargain buy.
In terms of a beautiful dress from my brother’s wedding, Debenhams has so many beautiful dresses that could totally fit the bill.
The fabulous Racing Green Collection, which Ben Fogle has been unveiled as the new face of, is full of cool, stylish tailored shorts that would be perfect for a wedding abroad.
