What is your shopping addiction? Bags, Shoes, Handbags, Make-up or something else?

Just that really - I have a definite fondness for bags and scarves, but seem to have shopping 'phases'. I will suddenly decide I haven't got any tops and will go and buy a couple of new ones as with looking at them exclusively, I see others I really like, then cant decide which to buy or think ooohh, this will be perfect with such a thing, this will do for whatever and end up buying both........... or several [hmmm] over a period of a couple of weeks.

Shoes, definitely shoes for me. I am a UK size 2 so now that there are specialist internet shops and also brands like CB have started offering IT34, I'm like a kid in a candy store.

Scarves and bracelets/bangles. Love them and it's a quick cheap fix if I want to buy myself something nice.

Stripey tops! I have so many but keep buying them. It's an obsession.

Pyjamas - I buy them constantly blush

Do have a fondness for shoes too but definitely PJ's!

Coats blush. You can never have too many coats is my mantra. Even the DC have loads.

Used to be shoes (and bras!) but now definitely make-up. Like spooky I do have a fondness for PJ's as well!

Dresses
Tights
Chunky bracelets
Hair products (a drawer full of serums, sprays, volumising products etc)

Shoes, bras and knickers, PJs and all things beautifying, like shower gels and scrubs and moisturisers.

Handbags

Handbags. Don't buy often generally as like ��� ones. But have splurged a bit this week.

goodasitgets Sun 23-Feb-14 13:40:12

Make up. And beauty products
I daren't even admit how much makeup I have except that I've insured it separately blushblushblushblush

Kasterborous Sun 23-Feb-14 13:44:24

Notebooks, books, pencils and Pyjamas.

Ooh handbags here , love mulberry and would rather save for months and months for one lovely bag. Rather than ten from the high street smile

Chottie Sun 23-Feb-14 13:58:41

Handbags, hair products, scarves, lipsticks in fact most make up smile

shoes,bags,and underwear blush, I keep buying lots of underwear lately,

I also developed a sudden addiction to premium denim,I used to buy 3 pairs a year, so far I've bought 2 this month,

spookyskeleton Sun 23-Feb-14 14:03:19

ooh I forgot, nail varnishes aswell. I have over 100 on my bathroom window (and most of them are expensive brands).

However, I have cured that addiction by now having gel manicures instead - probably cost the same as my nail varnish purchases and they never chip and I don't have to spend an hour every 4-5 days painting my nails and then waiting for them to dry.

I now have probably £500 worth of nail varnishes (used once or twice) sat in my bathroom :-/

Nearly everything mentioned so far on this thread!

Boltonlass1972 Sun 23-Feb-14 14:34:32

I'm a charity shop queen and love finding bargain shoes and boots!

PantsInWash Sun 23-Feb-14 14:34:58

Shoes. Shoes. And more shoes.

I have large feet & when I was younger had to wear boys/mens shoes which I hated. Now I can get lovely shoes that fit I'm making up for lost time... DD is one size smaller than me & wants her feet to grow so she can borrow my shoes. As soon as that happens I'm getting a padlock for the wardrobe grin

OhTheDrama Sun 23-Feb-14 15:06:03

Mine would be nail polish at the moment! All price levels but Essie is my favourite closely followed by Barry M. Had a gel manicure which ruined my nails so I stick to normal polishes now.

peacefuleasyfeeling Sun 23-Feb-14 15:12:09

Hm, might start stripy tops too, Fools... Back in pre-DC days, when I felt pretty flush, I used to obsess about a particular product from a particular brand and sometimes buy said item in several colours or "one for a spare, I just love it sooo much!". I spent a small fortune on many, many pairs of Pied a Terre very tall boots, Radley bags and Miller Harris perfume. Doh.

Amrapaali Sun 23-Feb-14 15:16:31

Books on Kindle. Body Butters.

Luckily, my addictions don't make much of a dent on my purse. smile

TallulahBetty Sun 23-Feb-14 15:21:38

Make up mainly, but also shoes, bags and bras wink

atthestrokeoftwelve Sun 23-Feb-14 15:22:59

Nothing. I am happy not to have a shopping addiction. If I do need some item- a pair of winter boots or a dress for a special occasion it takes me ages to buy it.

90% of my clothes come from charity shops anyway and I have one handbag to my name ( and that was second hand)
