Sales are like a woman’s best friend. A sale is always there for us when we need it, always gives us a nice surprise and more often than not we never fall out. A sale is what museums are to some people. It’s a place we can wonder round for hours just looking at what is on display. The crowds of a sale are like what a football match is to men, roaring crowds, pushing and shoving just to get the best view, or in a sales case the best buy. The busyness and excitement of a sale are like what theme parks are to children, full of happiness and joy and that unforgettable shriek of delight when you find exactly what you are looking for.
A sale is something that women can get lost in, something that no matter your mood can make you feel one hundred times better. Some may even go as far as calling a sale a guilty pleasure.
Once upon a time sales were only available by making your way into town to go in shop by shop and dig your way through hundreds of sale rails, with the occasional game of tug of war for a pair of harem pants! Nowadays you can sit at home in your pjs and shop till you drop, although without the drop as you will be sitting comfortably watching TV with a glass of wine. Sale alerts come through via emails, adverts, Twitter, Facebook and various other ways; there is literally no need to ever miss a sale again thanks to social media and SalesGossip.co.uk!
Now I’m not going to deny that sales don’t have their downsides as otherwise I’d be lying. Sometimes yes, we do end up buying tonnes of items that we don’t really need or want, the test we should be using is would I buy this if it was full price and actually wear it? The majority of the time the answer is no, but we still buy it anyway because it has 70% off. After all bargains are what girls live for.
We all need to embrace our wild side now and again, it’s good to be spontaneous and frivolous and if you can look good whilst doing it then there’s really no excuse not visit a sale once in a while.
