What with Christmas fast approaching and news of Amazon not paying UK taxes I'm choosing to shop locally and at independent retailers this year. This doesn't mean I have to trawl through town to find those little gems (although I will do that too I expect!) I've found some great online shops recently selling some gorgeous things, and you don't have to spend the earth.
In fact, my aim is to buy less but better quality. That way I can give single unique/designer presents instead of a few bits and pieces from the high street.
