How to survive a shopping trip in 5 easy steps

Ahhh shopping, every girl loves it right?
Wrong. Like I don't know I've never really fit into girly stereotypes anyway but my idea of hell is being dragged around a shopping mall on a Saturday (give me football anyday) but it's not the process of shopping because hell my bank card can attest I have a serious online shopping addiction it's just the absolute chore that a high street / shopping mall can provide when seeking to buy things

But good news for you guys is that I of course do have to go shopping so I've managed to make the ultimate shopping experience that little bit more bearable with 5 easy tips

1) Location, Location, Location
If you're in for the long haul of a full day of shopping you need somewhere where everything is under one roof - shopping, food and other activities can all be found at Liverpool 1* making it the perfect choice. Plus it's spacious and these kind of shopping malls are literally designed to make shoppers happy. Side point - rain can't get you inside (#winning)

2) Timing
Hey let's go shopping on a Saturday lunch time with the rest of the people in the country, yeh nope never happening #sorrynotsorry . If you want to actually enjoy a shopping trip weekdays are you friend, weekday evenings are even better. A trip shopping after work on a weekday is bound to be far more enjoyable than visiting on a weekend when it's packed to the rafters

3) Snackages 
Hangry is a thing, like legit a real thing - if you don't know what it is then you're a lucky person. Being hunger causes anger and thus Hangry, if you're planning a shopping trip make sure you have snacks/drinks for stamina (I advocate cocktail stops mid-way through but don't judge your purchases after!) For the more sensible of you I'd say cereal bars, nuts and water in your handbag are the perfect way to stop Hanger before you get to a scheduled food pit - stop 

4) Plan ahead
In the super switched on world we live on we have technology at our finger tips 24/7. Use it to your advantage and plan ahead, plan your route around, plan your food pit-stops. Plan which shops are unmissable and make sure you use money-saving apps such as voucher cloud to get discounts as you shop because even the grumpiest shopper (me always) will crack a smile at saving money

5) Cheat's way to shop
So on the days I desperately don't want to go shopping but also can't justify delivery costs I order all my purchases online, get them delivered to store and voila! Shopping completed in the quickest time in each shop because your purchases are all ready for you to pick up giving you more time to enjoy a nice meal and cocktails (TGI Friday's if you're offering to take me)

And there we go, even the most unsociable little bee can master a shopping trip - thank me later!
