Whoever said money doesn't buy happiness didn’t know where to shop

“Whoever said money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know where to shop.” These infamous words from my favorite shopaholic, Blair Waldorf are the kinds of things I tell myself when my online shopping ego is running rampant. Asking me if I like to shop is almost like asking the pope if he’s catholic, to put it simply, I am a self-confessed shopaholic.
My new boyfriend comes in the form of express checkouts and sales as far as my internet capacity will take me. I stumbled across a website called Ry that offers the latest beauty, hair care and cosmetics brands at affordable prices. Their main motto is to “recreate yourself” so in the spirit of things I decided it was time for a little online splurge. With the main motto in mind I needed to pick something that would transform my look from road kill to a camera ready goddess. My salvation came in the form of a Babyliss Pro Ceramic Conical Curling Wand, Morroconoil and Napoleon Perdis individual lashes. It felt just like Christmas when a day after I ordered my products I received my treats from the almighty internet heaven. With envious sister eyes behind me I unravelled my items to discover that they were just as described on the website, if not better.

There is no doubt that online shopping is a huge part of everyday life. People prefer the convenience and the instantaneity of e-commerce over those annoying and sometimes awkward exchanges with sales assistants. Ry has capitalised on this and is poised and ready for action. I found that Ry was easy to navigate around and checking out was as simple as a mouse click. I was further shocked at the speed of delivery and I felt like a valued customer with the little add-on’s that they included in my parcel.My shopping alter-ego not only recommends Ry as your first port of call when seeking out the latest hair, beauty and cosmetic products but commends them on their excellent online service. have a look at ry.com.au
