I spent the afternoon at my favorite mall today and met up with a friend for lunch, a glass of wine and some chatter. Before I met my friend, I did some quick shopping.

Lingerie. I love the stuff, but Iíve been a good girl and havenít splurged for a while. I had a gift certificate burning a hole in my wallet and since there was a sale, I figured I couldnít go wrong. I couldnít believe how expensive everything was, even with thirty per cent off. Still, I managed to purchase a bra and matching panties in a pretty blue that looks good with my eyes. It was fun lingerie shopping, although Iím still reeling at the rising prices.

I also visited the Body Shop. The service is always good at the Body Shop and the assistant offered to help me straight away. I wanted to browse and politely told her so, but she kept talking and trying to sell me stuff. She was very pushy and I wasnít impressed at all. I never thought Iíd say it, but there is such a thing as being too helpful.

When was the last time you purchased lingerie? Is it a fun experience for you? Have you experienced the pushy, over-helpful shop assitant before?

Every time I go into a shop called JeansWest the girls are way too helpful sometimes. I think it's because I'm a regular shopaholic in that store. I have a discount card and everything. LOL

I haven't been to shop for lingerie because I can never fit it. LOL! Last time I shopped for a bra was a nightmare!

I have however, been to a store where the sales people were really pushy and that irked me. I've been back to that same store and others were really good about giving me space to look around. They gave a couple of suggestions before letting me be, but that was okay. I don't mind that, but when they stay on you like a hawk it bothers me.

That can make things difficult. I've done a little shopping at JeansWest in my time!

Dani,

I don't mind a few suggestions. That's really helpful. It's the shop assistants that make me feel like a criminal that irritate me - you know, the ones who peer over your shoulder and are half a step behind the entire time.

Luckily, I never have problems with lingerie sizes. Now if I changed that to shoes then I'd be grumbling - a lot! I have huge problems finding shoes to fit me.
