Life of a crazy shopaholic

August 14, 2016


"That moment. That instant when your fingers curl round the handles of a shiny, uncreased bag—and all the gorgeous new things inside it become yours. What’s it like? It’s like going hungry for days, then cramming your mouth full of warm buttered toast. It’s like waking up and realizing it’s the weekend. It’s like the better moments of sex. Everything else is blocked out of your mind. It’s pure, selfish pleasure."

Aren't these words so honest? The shopaholic series is the one book that perfectly describes the feelings and emotions we shopaholics go through and some way or the other we all can relate to Becky.


If you follow my blog, you very well know how much I love shopping. In fact, I love shopping more than most of the things. Shopping makes me happy in a way nothing else can. So I am going to share with you how it is like to be a crazy shopaholic and if you are one, you are surely going to relate.

1. You might be very calculative when you are spending your money but when it comes to shopping you spend the last penny in your pocket without giving it a second thought. Because shopping is something you do with your heart and not brain. Duh!!!

2. You never have enough room in the wardrobe to keep your new clothes and sometimes when it's little too much and things really go out of your hand, you realise you don't have enough room to put another new wardrobe. Now that takes me to my third point.

3. You dream of a future where you will have a walk-in wardrobe and it will be no less than a museum with all your possessions safely kept, a place where your clothes, shoes, bags get all the respect they deserve. And if you are lucky, you already have one.


4. Most of your phone's space is taken up by all those online shopping apps and your favourite time pass is browsing them ( even when you don't have enough time and you are supposed to be busy).


5. The delivery guy and the people at the store get to see your face more often than most of your friends.


6. You can look at a person and immediately say what brand they are wearing, the price, it's availability, similar styles, any discount. You are practically the wikipedia when it comes to describing an outfit.


7. Your inbox is always crammed with messages from various stores with offers and discounts. There is hardly any store where you don't have a membership card or ID.


8. Any party or occasion is just another opportunity for you to shop more. You won't even have a look at what you already got and you'll be on your way to get new stuff.


9. You fantasise yourself in different outfits more than you fantasise anything else.


10. Your friends are always asking you to join them when they are going for shopping because you can help them the best but then you end up shopping a lot more than your friend did.


11. You promise yourself than you'll be more responsible (out of guilt) every time you are extravagant and make a pledge not to shop at least for a month only the end up shopping 5 times more after one month.


12. You often hear your family jokingly (hopefully) saying if there was a rehab for shopping de-addiction they would send you there.


And the list goes on....But whatever it is, shopping is an amazing experience. It can make you happy, it can heal..and most importantly it can make you feel complete.


So if you agree do let me know.


Love,

Sumelika ❤️
