    I agree Judi, it's amazing, I don't get out much because of my health so I tend to do a lot of Online shopping and I am always amazed when my parcels arrive on my doorstep in next to no time, great service, I love it...

    I've bought some wonderful bargains online recently (Elizabeth Arden moisturiser, 75ml for £11!)...But our best recent online shopping was done by my b/f. He bought me a beautiful ring for Christmas (no wedding bells, I've given up getting married) - a white gold "half eternity" band, set with tanzanite and diamonds. Awww, I can't wait to wear it!

    There used to be a really good music shop in a nearby town where I bought all my classical CDs, but that has closed down and there is nowhere now which stocks anything more than the basics. So I use Amazon, but more often MDT (MDT - Please enable your cookies), which is very good.

    (Sorry, that link looks a bit strange, but it does work!)

    For books I use Amazon sometimes, but more often Abebooks (AbeBooks Official Site - New & Secondhand Books, New &Used Textbooks, Rare & Out of Print Books), which acts as a kind of clearing house for all the second hand book shops in the country. It's a fantastic website! And you can buy books from abroad too - I recently found a very rare old book, for which I had been looking for ages, in a tiny shop in Rhode Island!

    Clothes and cosmetics I get from eBay - I like clothes from Ulla Popken and Ann Harvey, which are a bit expensive, but I can always pick up bargains online. And I like to get small sizes of expensive facecreams to try them out, which are easy to find on eBay.

    Also, I always buy my train tickets online - the best way to get the bargain tickets which are getting so hard to find these days.

    Oh Daisy what a great ring! But it's the fact he did it off his own bat! SO romantic!

    I had quite an ebay habit at one time! I have it firmly under control now! But I also have a wardrobe consisting of Monsoon gear, all bought VERY cheaply! Never had a bad one! I certainly couldn't have afforded to get it new. The rest is per una or principles. I've now stopped cos I want to get a size 14 next.

    If you have a nectar card then do go onto Nectar e stores cos you can get points from nearly everywhere if you go from that site first.

    My OH bought my engagement ring from the internet. He did a lot of research into diamonds and whatnot and the ring he bought me is beautiful. And the money he saved was insane! And it's legit - we made sure lol! The ring was shipped from the USA to Ireland then to us :)

    For jewelry I highly recommend bluenile.co.uk!!
