Why Shopping by yourself is awesome!

I think I have said this before, but I am a bit of a loner. I much prefer doing things by myself. I guess I like to get things done quickly and efficiently. Here is why shopping by yourself is just so awesome!

1. You can go when you want to
you can make it a spontaneous trip, or just go when you are ready. You don't have to wait around for someone else who is probably going to be late.

2. No waiting around
You can spend as little or as long in a shop as you like. Therefore, no traipsing around Topshop when you really want to be in New Look

3. You can be daring
Especially with clothes shopping, I try on things that I wouldn't usually pick up if I was with friends or family.

4. You can go back to shops
I do this all the time. I always look around and then go back to places - other people don't always like to do that!

BUT, don't go too overboard - you will have no one there to tell you that you are spending too much money (been there, done that!)

Do you go shopping by yourself? 


  1. Yes I have loved shopping alone especially because I can get everything done super quickly.

  2. I find Christmas shopping is definitely better done alone! Don't want people seeing presents and it makes the trip so so much faster! :)

    1. Yes definitely! You don't have to worry! xx

  3. I am SO on board with this. Although sometimes I like shopping with my boyfriend, I'd rather just go alone because I feel so bad for making him wait and he tends to whine a bit, haha.
    Shopping alone is so de-stressing as well. I agree with all these points!

    1. Haha! I know what you mean, I always feel bad if I want to spend longer in a shop than they do. I usually end up just going and not getting anything that I wanted to! xx

  4. It really depends how I feel! Sometimes I use shopping as a social thing - otherwise my friends and I wouldn't meet up! (We like Oxford Street okay?). I find I'm more often to find what I want if I'm on my own though - I have the time to look without someone rolling their eyes at Primark!

    1. Oo Oxford Street is quite scary to go alone though - totally agree! xxx

  5. Yes, a million times yes! I love shopping alone. I can take my time and try on 100 things without my poor husband getting annoyed and bored :P


    1. Aha! I know, I try on so many things! xx
