10 Best Online Shopping Sites I Wish I Knew Earlier

10 Best Online Shopping Sites I Wish I Knew Earlier

Nowadays, it seems like a lot of items (e.g. books, electronics, and office supplies) are bought online more than they are in stores, mostly due to the convenience of it all. There is one department, however, where traditional shopping is still king: clothing. Indeed, when people want to go to the mall, they’re usually going for one reason, and that’s to check out the sales at all of those trendy designer stores.

So here’s a question for you: why don’t more folks buy their clothes through online shopping? Is it because they need to try them on before they buy anything? Or is it because they are unaware of some of the cool sites out there that offer an amazing selection of popular clothes? It’s probably a mix of both.

So let’s get down to business. What are a few of the hip-and-happening clothing websites out there that you’re probably currently unaware of, and what makes them unique? Read on to find out…

1. eShakti

    If you are worried about finding clothes that fit well online, then eShakti is likely the shop for you. One of their cooler features is that they allow you to customize their garments so that they align with your exact measurements, all for a low flat rate of $7.50.

    2. Shoptagr

    Shoptagr

      Shoptagr comes equipped with a bunch of unique tools that can assist you in your quest to find the perfect outfit. For instance, it allows you to save the selections of over 600 designer stores and create your own personalized clothing collections using their chrome extension (which means you can access them on any of your smart electronic devices that are connected to the internet and buy them when the time is right).

      Creating a personalized collection through Shoptagr also has a functional purpose as well, because if any of the items you have listed there go on sale, you’ll promptly receive a notification from them (ensuring that you don’t overspend on that dress you’ve been eyeing for the past few months).

      3. Forever 21

        If you thought that Forever 21 was just a store you could visit in your local mall, think again. It actually also has a great online component that allows young adults (their target demographic) to browse the latest trends. Best of all, they’re not overly expensive either. Also, since you have likely been to a Forever 21 in person, and tried on their clothes, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what will fit you when purchasing items online.

        4. 10 Dollar Mall

        10dollarmall (4)

          Like the name suggests, this site offers all kinds of stylish clothes for under $10. You really can’t beat that!

          5. Deb

          Deb (5)

            Deb’s claim to fame is that they offer an incredibly wide variety of sizes, giving both large and small folks the opportunity to have access to the latest clothing trends. If you can’t find it in stores, it’s likely they’ll have it here.

            6. Necessary Clothing

            Necessary Clothing (6)

              The goal of this site is to offer clothes that girls feel are “necessary,” so you’ll always find a broad, cheap selection of apparel here. Based on what I’ve seen, this is the site you go to if you want an outfit to wear for nights out.

              7. Plasticland

              Plasticland (7)

                If you’re into all of the crazy styles offered at your mall’s Hot Topic, but don’t want to be seen hanging around a bunch of 15 to 25 year olds, then Plasticland is for you. Using their site, you’ll be able to order all kinds of eccentric clothes and shoes from the comfort of your own home.

                8. Choies

                Choies (8)

                  Before you ask, no, I didn’t forget the “c.” That’s really the name of their site! What makes Choies unqiue is that they offer a bunch of offbeat novelty/artistic clothing that you can use to show off to all of your followers on social media. Great for those who like to stand out in a crowd.

                  Advertising

                  9. Romwe

                  Romwe (9)

                    Romwe is sort of a mix of a traditional and offbeat clothing store. You can find a lot of trendy things there, as well as some more artsy selections. Their best feature however is that they offer free shipping worldwide for all purchases.

                    10. ASOS

                    ASOS (10)

                      ASOS is cool because they offer contemporary and vintage styles for both men and women. But, perhaps best of all, is that they offer a special deal for college students. That’s right: if you’re currently attending college, all you need to do is sign up for the ASOS on Campus promotion and you’ll receive a 10% discount on all purchases. If you purchase a lot of clothes, that 10% can really add up over time!

                      So there you have it. Ten great sites that can jump start your journey into the world of shopping for clothes online. If you’ve got any sites that are your favorites, or have had good experiences purchasing your wardrobe online, let us know in the comments below!

                      5 Exercises To Improve Intimacy and Create a Better Relationship

                      5 Exercises To Improve Intimacy and Create a Better Relationship

                      Making love can be simultaneously the most pleasurable and the most stressful experience that we share with another human being. It is a natural conclusion of the ritual of intimacy we engage in with a person we find attractive on both a physical and psychological level. Yet, we are far removed from our animalistic roots, and that which was once a matter of instinct has become somewhat complex. This is a good thing; we have grown as a society, and there are many factors involved when it comes to the relationship between sexual partners. However, we have also lost a great deal of the physical prowess our primitive ancestors had.

                      They engaged in a huge amount of physical activities daily — activities that ensured their cardiovascular system and muscles were in great shape, which allowed them to have healthy libidos, strong erections, and the muscular strength, limberness and endurance to maintain different positions for a long time without getting exhausted. Luckily, we can regain some of these animalistic traits with the right kind of training. Here are some essential exercises that will help improve your relationship, but making you more confident in intimate settings, which means that you’ll have more satisfying intercourse.

                        1. Cardio for Stamina

                        If you’re out of shape, the first thing you’ll notice during intercourse is that you start to breathe heavily, sweat profusely and tire easily. This means you’ll have to shift your posture frequently and limit yourself to a few positions you feel comfortable with or significantly slow down the pace. A high BMI has also been linked to potential problems with erectile dysfunction. Cardiovascular exercises like running, jumping rope, swimming and cycling will build up your aerobic stamina and enable you to perform longer before becoming fatigued, thus having better intercourse. They’ll also help manage your weight, possibly helping performance.

                        Triathlon symbol
                          • Running – 10-20 minutes a day (1-3 miles a day is more than enough)
                          • Jumping rope – 5-20 minutes a day
                          • Swimming – 30 minutes a day
                          • Cycling – 30 minutes a day

                          The time in minutes denotes time spent actively performing the exercise, and you need to factor in a bit more time for warming up before and cooling down after the exercises.

                          These exercises can be performed every day or every other day, and the goal is to work on both endurance and speed. Don’t just go at a snail’s pace; constantly try to improve your time or add some mileage.

                          2. Strength-Training for Your Lower Body and Core

                          The next thing you’ll need to focus on is improving both the strength and muscular endurance of the hip flexors, abdominals and spinal erectors. These are the muscles engaged in thrusting and circular motions, and they also stabilize your body in a number of different positions. The legs also play an important role, particularly in standing and kneeling positions. Here are a few exercises that will help you strengthen up this area:

                          Barbell squats
                            • Heavy barbell squats – set up at a power rack at the gym and make sure you use proper form and weights that you can lift 3-8 times. Do this exercise before anything else in the gym for 4-5 sets to get big and powerful legs, as well as tighten up the muscles of the core. This is useful for both men and women, particularly if you enjoy the woman-on-top positions and standing positions. You can do hack squats on the machine if your gym lacks a power rack, but you won’t get the core-strengthening benefits

                            Zercher squat
                              • Zercher squatsthis type of squat is a perfect way for guys to strengthen their body for standing positions where the woman is lifted off the ground. Build up a foundation of strength first, and then use lighter weights and go for 10-12 repetitions to focus on muscle endurance.

                              Glute bridge
                                • Glute bridgethis exercise is great for working the glutes and hip thrusters, and should be done for ultra-high reps —up to 100 — to increase muscle endurance. Once you become stronger in this movement, you can upgrade to the barbell glute bridge and keep the reps high — around 10 to 15.

                                Hyperextensions
                                  • Hyperextensions – excellent for strengthening the spinal erectors, this exercise (or a variation of it) may be done in most gyms and even at home. Do 2 to 3 sets of 10 to 12 repetitions at the end of your workout.

                                  Ab wheel rollout
                                    • Ab wheel rollout – this is a great exercise for strengthening the abs, and requires only a piece of inexpensive equipment. It will help you stay stable and hold positions longer without getting tired during intercourse. Do three sets of this workout for as many repetitions as you can.

                                    Cross body crunch
                                      • Cross body crunchthis exercise improves your ability to perform explosive twisting motions, particularly good for improving your stamina in the spoon position where you’e lying on your side. Do 2 to 3 sets of this exercise at the end of your workout.

                                      Incorporate these exercises into your routine 2 to 3 times a week.

                                      3. Upper-Body Strength Training

                                      Upper-body strength plays an important role in many popular sex positions where the arms are used to provide a stable base or hold onto the partner. These including missionary, doggy style, the stand and carry (with the woman holding onto the man’s neck) and others. Use these simple exercises to improve upper body strength and endurance:

                                      Plank exercise
                                        • Plank – while bench pressing is great for building a big chest, you will find yourself in need of static strength, muscle endurance and a strong core. This exercise is a great way to increase the amount of time you are able to hold positions that require you to support yourself with your arms. For added difficulty, straighten out your arms like at the top of a pushup and hold as long as you can.

                                        Close grip pushups
                                          • Close pushups – a pushup variation that focuses on triceps, which are the first to give out during a prolonged missionary or similar position. Go for very high reps, 20 t0 50, to work on muscle endurance.

                                          Chin ups
                                            • Chin-ups – A great upper back and biceps builder, this exercise will also target the core if you try to be as straight as possible when lifting yourself up. You can jump to help make things easier, or just hold as long as you can if you aren’t strong enough to perform a single chin up. Do 3 to 4 sets for as many reps as you can.

                                            These exercises, done about three times a week, will help you develop a strong upper body that can keep going and hold you up for extended periods of time.

                                            4. Pelvic-Floor Exercises

                                            You don’t have to perform these at the gym, although you could do them after your workout without anyone even noticing. The idea behind Kegel exercises is to improve blood flow to the sex organs and strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor in both men and women. By locating these muscles and tightening and relaxing them for intervals of 5 seconds for 10 to 15 repetitions at a time, several times a day, you can improve pleasure and performance during sex. Women can tighten their vaginal walls for increased pleasure to both them and their partner, while men can delay ejaculation by tightening these muscles.

                                            5. Flexibility Moves for Legs and Hips

                                            Lion stretching

                                              If you want to avoid getting cramps — or even worse, pulling a muscle during intercourse — you should do a few simple stretches every day. The more limber you are, the more comfortable you’ll be with more exotic poses. Here are a few simple stretches to improve hip and leg flexibility:

                                              Take a few minutes to warm up with some light running or jumping jacks before stretching, and spend some 10 minutes on these stretches. You can do them in the morning and at night, or shortly before intercourse.

                                              With just a few hours a week devoted to exercise, you can improve your relationship significantly. If you focus on these exercises, over time, you just might become dynamite in bed.
