Shopping around the World…

by jenjenk on August 14, 2009

I wish I could say that shopping is a dirty little secret of mine but unfortunately, everyone knows and when everyone knows, it ceases to be a secret. I wish I could say definitively that my Senseless Desire to Acquire Syndrome (aka SDAS) was caused by one specific thing but it’s probably actually several reasons: 1.) the thrill off the hunt, 2.) new hobbies that must be pursued to the fullest degree, 3.) I go from couch potato to fitness queen and back again, thus needing a wide range of clothes sizes/options, 4.) I’m trying to help the economy regain its footing singlehandedly, and 5.) i’m bored.

So apart from scouring the world of information for places to eat and things to do, I also make it my mission to figure out what I can buy in said parts of the world. Here are just a few of my favorite places to shop!
