Lyst - A New Way to Shop Online for Busy People

I bet I'm not alone when I say that as a mum, I am always bottom of the queue when it comes to buying new clothes. I often leave buying my autumn/winter wardrobe to the very last minute and before I know it, the leaves are falling from the trees, the mornings are darker and I end up doing the school run in my summer dress and sandals rather than a warm coat and boots. Maybe not quite that extreme but you get the picture.

The clever people at have found a solution to my problems. Their website has been designed with busy people in mind. Lyst works with top designers such as Burberry and Valentino alongside high street favourites such as Topshop, Zara and ASOS and uses smart technology to provide every customer with a unique shopping experience. The more you use the platform, the more it learns about the type of clothes and accessories you love and will show you more of the same. I love this idea as it will save hours of browsing through multiple sites trying to find 'that perfect dress'.

What I also think is a BRILLIANT idea is that you can 'lyst' items in your wishlist and when they are back in stock or are reduced, you'll receive an alert. I planned my winter wardrobe watching TV last night and added a few items to my wishlist. I couldn't resist buying these Lace Up Leather Boots by Zara straight away but there were a few more items I liked that I've saved to my wishlist for another day. I have my fingers crossed they'll be reduced, I'll receive an alert and snap them up at a bargain price.

I love that you can subscribe to individual designer updates too. I have a bit of a soft spot for Burberry but have yet to make my first purchase. I have signed up for Burberry updates so will be the first to hear about new arrivals and offers. I have a feeling my first Burberry purchase is imminent!

As I have been typing this post, I may or may not have just added this gorgeous Brown Asis Reversible Shopper by Oasis for the bargain price of £30. I love it!
