A friend of mine is an Interior Designer. Actually, she’ll turn her hand to outside as well! She will offer advice and oversee the installation of anything from a towel rail to a curtain pole, dishwasher to double glazing. She told me the other day that when it came to the latter (double glazing) she prefers to do research for her clients online. Because the products were not for her own personal use, but her clients, she felt she would be able to “avoid the pestering double glazing salesman”. That said, she has managed to compile a list of great online sites that offer double glazing quotes, windows, doors and installations. [Read More...]

Browsing round the High Street, heading to the big shopping centre or clicking into your favourite store has changed the face of shopping. There are so many options that should suit every need. Teenagers and young adults are probably the most computer literate and media savvy in a generation.
Online shopping is ever expanding and appealing to a wider customer base all the time some specifically aiming their sights at those with spending power and disposable income – the young adults and teenagers. There are a number of sites which offer a variety of brands, like ASOS and catalogue sites like Very which enable you to browse through brands from Adidas to Urban Decay (I couldn’t think of a ‘z’ brand).
Payment tends to be via Credit or Debit card however there is a growing popularity in using Paypal to cover the cost of the latest boots or jeans. The downside to online shopping is waiting for items to be delivered and the added delivery cost. The exception to the rule here seems to be the ever more competitive space of cheap appliances and electronics. More and more retailers are providing free post and packaging for electronics based items. [Read More...]

If you were looking for one of the top ten least rewarding activities then shopping for young adults and late teenagers has to be close to the top of the list. Shopping for young children is relatively easy as you are in control of what gets bought and at least for a few years, what gets worn. Once children develop a mind of their own that is when things start to get tricky.
There have been a number of things I’ve bought for my brother over the years which have been met with “have you got the receipt?” so one thing I know for sure is young adults and teenagers, especially boys, don’t shop in Marks and Spencer. However with the internet they are now turning to price comparison sites to find their deals. I have also in the past found one or two acceptable brands only to pick an item with a visible logo, absolutely unacceptable apparently. Yet I see teenagers walking around emblazoned with logos but obviously not the ones I had chosen. Brands seem to be closely related to various ‘cool’ groups and cross over is limited – you don’t see kids with skateboards wearing Uggs and the public school look appears to be reliant on Jack Wills and Abercrombie and Fitch.

My niece and nephew went shopping with their granny so that she could buy them something for Christmas. Rather than going for the easy option of a voucher or just giving them the money she wanted to join them on a shopping trip so they could chose something they like. As I understand it they went to a few stores before they both found Adidas jackets they wanted – simple zip jackets which granny thought would be a reasonable purchase. However I think granny almost fainted when they got to the checkout as the two tops came to £120! Premium branded clothes and shoes are expensive, partly because they are better quality than lower end brands but also because of the perception of exclusivity. Not everyone can afford a premium brand and therefore if you can it tends to be recognised in the … [Read More...]
