The simplest association to a woman is practically 'shopping'. Out of 10 women, I bet at least 7 to 8 would love shopping whether it is about shoes, bags, cosmetics, accessories, dresses, denims and the list goes on. Woman would justify with all kind of excuses to go shopping. I would sometimes tell my Significant Other that I need go to the mall for retail therapy since I had been working very hard. Kind of a way to distress myself. Yeah..and in the end, I would end up with bags of newly purchased stuff.
Believe it or not, these stuff aren't critical, not the matter of life or death neither it is life threatening but there is always an urge to store them. Blame it on the sale or clearance, they are always 'worth' buying and that's the reason these stuff are piled up at home! That's about me.
And how about man? For man who loves shopping, the same scenario does not differ. If he is a gadgets freak, he would browse everything in 'Best Buy' and get his eyes brushing every corner without fail. In the end, he might end up with more than a dozen of casing for his one and only PDA phone! Then, come the exclusive stuff like camera, stereo and even car. Oh boy! He wants to try everything that's new in the market.
I am not trying to be sexiest but statistically speaking, most women would agree that Martians are spending more than Venusians in term of dollars although they make much less trips to the malls. But each purchase the Martian made is really a huge amount of money. Perhaps possibly exchange for 20 odds blouses? So, I guess we are equal as you get to buy your 'cool' stuff and I get my booties, leggings, blouses so on and so forth. Debate is over dear!
Now, let us check out where I aim to bring you for a shopping trip near Austin. Come, let's go to The Premium Outlets in Round Rock! It is like a paradise for shoppers. From designer fashions, sportswear, housewares, leathers, jewelery, cosmetics and fragrances, this place offers more than a hundred shops for you to shop and get the items that you have been dying for at 'good' price.
For folks that rate shopping as average may spend one full day here (assuming you spend 5 mins in each shop) and I think for the extreme shopaholics, they may come back again and again. Some folks may call this place impressive savings as usually good stuff are really inexpensive and better still after price is marked down. To expedite your shopping, you may wish to browse online, prepare a checklist and aim for stores with prices marked down or zoom into items you are longing for since last Christmas.
