Guilty Online Pleasures

By SharikaPublished 3 years ago Updated 2 years ago 3 min read

So, here is the thing, since the pandemic I have been a sucker for online shopping. Mostly because I’ve somehow managed to convince myself that shopping online and having packages that travel across the world, through multiple check points is safer.

An illusion, I know but it has been a fun one none the less. In my list of purchase that are now scattered throughout my home that we will not be telling my husband about while I cross my fingers that he does not read this is, drum rolls please…a waist trainer from xtreme kurves. Now I am not new to the waist training game and have bought a few off other sites, Amazon, Facebook ad and so on. All promising a good sweat with great body structure and all uncomfortable as hell. So, when I came across xtreme Kurves on Instagram {all one word for those checking it out } I am not going to lie I was super skeptical and had to read a tone of reviews and then decided to roll the dice on it and I’m so happy I did. Compared to the other waist trainers I have purchased in this past this one was a bit pricey $89-100 but was it every worth it. Not only is it super comfortable and provides a great sweat, on the site they also sell ones you can wear when you are sleeping, yes, I purchased that one too!

Ohhh and did I also mention they have thigh trainers that work just like how the waist trainers do except for your thighs! And yes, I swiped for that also lol. Hey, in my defence I was taught to go big or go home. With that said I recommend XtremeKurves.

Next on my recommendations list of must haves is for anyone who loves tights but hates buying ones that end up either being too thin and show cellulite, or too big at the waist so it rolls down or just to expensive with no longevity. For all those ladies out there with those pet peeves this one for you… leggings from Minizazz!!

Ladies when I mean they make your butt look like celebrity, I kid you not!! I bought a pair for the gym, home and my “sexy laundry day” pair. All 3 for the low cost of $69 bucks. The site offers trendy unique styles that are perfect for everyday wear. Awesome outfits you can dress up and dress down and yes, I have sampled a few of those also. In my defence I have a 13-year-old daughter who samples all my clothing that usually does not make its way back to my closet so technically these items are replacement pieces, wink wink.

And last but definitely not least, WISH. Wish has awesome items with prices that are to die for. However, I strongly recommend reading the reviews on the item you’re purchasing. I learned that after I saw a beautiful rug with gorgeous colours that I thought would be perfect for my living room, turned out to be the size of a place mat. I’ll wait until your done rolling on the floor with laughter. After that misrepresentation I found another unique rug and it was stunning! And only $30! When it came, I couldn’t believe my eyes! Since then I’ve ordered gorgeous sweaters with wolves on them ( note to self always order sizes 2 sizes up for clothing )and had nothing but an amazing experience and if the item you ordered doesn’t come right when it’s supposed to the refund process is quick and easy. Alright ladies, on your marks… Get set… Swipe! May the force be with you!
