As I walked through the front door, I took a deep breath and felt a sense of ease wash over me. There’s just something about department stores—don’t you think?
There’s an adrenaline rush, especially when you find a bargain. It feels good … and it’s a great way to escape from your everyday life.
A job you hate, a bad relationship, or a mess waiting for you at home. We all have things we want to avoid and what better way than by shopping?
The other day, Facebook reminded me of a post I shared almost a decade ago. It was a meme that read: “Life is short. Buy the shoes!”
From social media influencers showing off “haul” videos to celebrities who never wear the same thing twice … we’re surrounded by people who normalise shopping.
You aren’t comfortable with what you see in the mirror so you buy something new, hoping it will make you feel better about yourself.
