Shopping is synonymous to procrastination

One of the most wonderful things about living in the year of 2009 is being able to window shop online -- er, or should I call it screen shopping? For me, a late night quick pick-me-up consists of browsing eBay and eating frozen yogurt for up to an hour while making sure I get as little sleep as possible before my government exam.

Anyway, I love browsing online and occasionally snatching up a good deal -- especially because I hate shopping at the mall. When I was young(er) and dorky, I used to get shunned by the salespeople because I didn't look like a serious shopper. I mean, even the saleslady at PacSun snickered at me behind my back in fourth grade. These days, I get all the attention I need at the mall. I think there should be a mathematical formula for this: quality of customer service = [(number of shopping bags) + (brand of bag)]/(overall rating of outfit)

Something like that. Math isn't my forte, but I try.

Because I'm super exhausted even though I'm graduating in four weeks and I haven't been able to post as much as I'd like, I have Gilt Groupe, ideeli, HauteLook, and Editors' Closet invites for all of you. These are fabulous invite-only shopping websites that sell luxury and designer clothing and accessories at wonderful discount prices (in limited supply; there's always a catch!) -- think $2,000 Vera Wang gown for less than $400.
