5 Simple Ways To Transform Your Home For The Spring

If you’ve been thinking of giving your home a new look, now is a perfect time. And you’ve come to the right place if you’re looking to shop and ship some great decor pieces to transform your home.

Spring is a time for rejuvenation and renewal, and that can apply to your wardrobe as well as your living space. We’ve already covered a few ideas for Spring shopping on our blog, and if you’re looking to spruce up your place a bit too, here are a few ideas for incorporating small changes into your home decor that will go a long way.

Starting From The Ground Up

What’s covering your room’s floor is just as important as what’s on it. A well-placed rug can change the entire look of a room immediately. And for folks who like their spaces cosy, rugs can never go wrong.

If you like a more traditional aesthetic, this Crook Oriental Rug is perfect for any room.

Stand-out features of the Crook Oriental Rug:

  • Made of polyester
  • Created using flatweave technique
  • Available in 7 colors
  • Comes in 6 sizes

If you think this style is right up your alley, then be sure to check out some of the other items available at Wayfair. They have a very extensive variety of home decor items that could liven up any space perfectly.

Lighting Makes All The Difference

Ask any home decor expert and they’ll tell you the same thing: you can completely transform the way any space looks by changing the lighting, no matter the decor style you’re using.

Lighting can be so many things: ceiling lights, floor lamps, wall-fixed lights etc. These handcrafted Maxwell Lanterns are bound to give your home not just well-placed lighting, but a very bold, black accent that can add attitude to the room.

Stand-out features of the Maxwell Handcrafted Lanterns:

  • Handcrafted of steel and glass
  • Powder coated black finish
  • Certified fair-trade item
  • For use indoors or outdoors
  • Free of phthalates, BPA and lead

Also, if you still haven’t seen Pottery Barn’s amazing home decor collections, it’s an absolute must-see for anyone looking to redecorate. They just released their Summer Lookbook and it’s full of cool blues and whites to endlessly inspire you.

Don’t Forget The Greens

It’s a common mistake to overlook the importance of flora when it comes to decorating your space, especially if it’s indoors. And there are several ways you can incorporate plants and botanicals into your home creatively and seamlessly.

An interesting approach when it comes to including some greenery in your house is to use minimalist plant pots as decor pieces, like this Galvanized Vertical Wall Planter, which mounts to the wall securely and looks unique while saving space at the same time.

 

Stand-out features of the Galvanized Vertical Wall Planter:

  • Wall-mounted, with 10 plant cells
  • Moisture mat for even distribution of water
  • Copper matte-finish frame
  • Collector tray for disposal of excess water

Decor Can Be A Delicate Game

A lot of the things that go into completing a room’s look are in the details. Small decor pieces and items in corners can add a lot of flavor and color. Also, depending on the general color scheme you’re going for, small decor items can help complete the look.

Completely hand-made and meticulously hand-painted, these Abstract Indigo Vases are a modern take on a classic color palette. Each vase is handmade by skilled Thai artisans.

 

Stand-out features of the Abstract Indigo Vases:

  • Stoneware in Indigo
  • Hand thrown and hand painted
  • Watertight
  • Sold individually
  • Made in Thailand

For more pieces with this traditional and abstract look, be sure to check out West Elm’s store; you’ll find furniture, homer decor and more.

If These Walls Could Talk

One way to instantly inject some feeling into a room is by wall art. Depending on the look you’re going for, you may want to keep a wall empty or give it just a little bit of flavor with a hanging piece or two. Everyone has their own personal preference when it comes to wall art, and sometimes, less is more.

World Market has a wonderful framed wall art piece featuring a kaleidoscope of butterflies that can immediately give your space a great new feel. Featuring some very vivid hues and set in a vintage frame, this piece can match various decor styles.

 

Stand-out features of the Butterfly Kaleidoscope Wall Art:

  • Linen under glass
  • Wooden frame
  • Rustic finish
  • Ready to hang

For more unique pieces likely to spruce up your space, check out the World Market online store.

If you’ve been waiting for the right deal on children’s clothing to come along, or just want some options that your kids are bound to love as much as you do, then you’re not alone. Luckily, some online stores make it very easy to find the right thing for the right price that are perfect for your kids, so if online shopping from the US is what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place.

Target

Target has a section dedicated to children’s clothing on their online store, and it makes online shopping for the kids very convenient. The whole thing is divided into several parts based on making it easy to find what you’re looking for.

How To Level Up Your Style This Spring: Trends In 2021

The start of Spring is the perfect time to give your style an upgrade. While stores never miss the chance to explore a new aesthetic as it gets warmer, there seems to be a renewed energy this year, perhaps as a result of the new optimism for the foreseeable end of the pandemic. And if you’re looking to shop and ship from American stores this season, there are plenty of great options to look at.

This year’s Spring/Summer collection is a love letter to pastel colors and cool, breezy materials. There’s also great love for sustainability this year. Retailers really seem to be focusing on ways to make their new additions more environmentally friendly, and some are even revising old classics to give them a great new sustainable makeover. Also, there is more focus on inclusivity than ever, with stores aiming to cater to more body types.

If you would like to have any of these items delivered to your country, you can always do so easily with a free Global Shopaholics account. Stick around till the end to find out more.

Here are a few highlights of what the Spring/Summer 2021 fashion looks like.

The ASOS Responsible Denim Collection

Not too long ago, ASOS introduced its new Responsible Denim line of jeans. The entire collection is focused on making denim more environmentally-friendly; it uses much less water and incorporates more responsibly-sourced materials like recycled cotton. According to the company, they’re saving 1255 litres of water for every kilo of recycled denim produced with this new method.

But that’s not the only great thing about the ASOS denim line. The entire collection is more extensive than ever and there’s truly something here for everyone. Inclusivity seems to be a point of importance for several retailers now, which will become clearer as you read ahead. Jeans can be a very specific choice for everyone, and ASOS seems dedicated to providing something for everybody type and preference. You’ll find skinny, wide-leg, bleached, black, shredded, shorts, you name it.

What’s more, ASOS also has a very useful fashion feed on its site that can help you in your search for good options. They cover all sorts of fashion and grooming topics, from style coordination to sustainable trends.

Everlane’s Sporty Summer Look

Everlane’s new summer collection is a nice selection of staple pieces that can fit into anyone’s wardrobe seamlessly. The line is a perfect blend of pastel colors and Nordic style summer looks. You’ll find plenty of blues, beige, navy and olive all around.

Everlane also just introduced its Uniform Sport line, affordable performance wear that’s meant to be long-lasting while staying in style. Pieces in the line are created with what Everlane is calling ReTech fabric: a high-performance blend of moisture-wicking, recycled materials; that’s 85% recycled nylon and 15% recycled elastane.

Everlane is truly focused on sustainability too. They’ve committed to completely phasing out virgin plastic by the end of 2021, using only recycled plastic for packaging, products, poly bags and more. They’re also promising certified organic cotton, replacing dangerous chemicals currently used in the production of cotton with natural alternatives and traditional agriculture techniques.

Forever 21: Inclusive Is In

Body positivity is changing not just how we view our bodies but how businesses include people with different body types too. Forever21 has a section dedicated entirely to plus-sized fashion on their online store. Aptly titled Plus+Curve, the collection features a selection of summer looks that you can love no matter what your size is. There’s everything here from clothing, accessories, shoes, bags and more.

Forever 21 is also doing a Vacation Getaway collection. Set to the theme of a breezy summer vacation, these pieces consist of pastel colors and flowy, breathable summer materials. The post-pandemic anticipation seems to be a running theme across many retailers this season.

Adidas For The New Age

The classic Adidas Stan Smith sneakers, which have been a staple for the brand since their introduction in 1973, are getting a fresh, future-facing redo. But there’s no need to worry if you think the classic kicks will be drastically altered. The change is being made not to how they look, but to how they’re made. Adidas is focused on going green, and the Stan Smith sneakers are where style and sustainability are coming to meet

The shoes will be made with recycled materials, which is a motive the company is generally geared towards across its operations. Adidas has planned to become 100% sustainable by 2024, by replacing all plastic with completely recycled polyester in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint.

Apart from the new green Stan Smiths, Adidas is doing a tie-dye line this season, which may sound odd to hear, but rest assured it looks great. The entire collection is drenched in - you guessed it - pastel hues: all set for the summer. It’s also perfectly affordable, ranging from $25 to $100 at most. You’ll find pieces for warm and cool weather, so whether the Spring season in your area is cooler or not, there’s something for everyone here.

So Here’s What This Summer Is Looking Like

This year’s Spring and Summer collection is all about light summer colors, sustainability and inclusivity. Brands are all aboard the Green train, with several big names leading the way. Also, fashion is more inclusive than it has been in a long time. With all this in mind, now is a better time than ever to restyle your wardrobe too.

Assisted Purchase: The Easiest Way To Shop From The US

Right now, shopping is the most convenient it has ever been. Stores are online, your packages are delivered at your doorstep and there are multiple online services aimed at giving you great deals and discounts. The entire online shopping process is built to be as easy as possible for you. And with the ease of package forwarding, shopping is more international than ever.

But shopping across borders isn’t always without problems. Certain American stores will require a US credit card in order to complete the purchase. Moreover, many stores will ask you for a US phone number as well. Online shoppers from other countries understandably don’t have these readily available.

And that’s not the only hurdle stores place in the way of international shopping. Certain outlets won’t deliver their products to a warehouse address, which is a problem for anyone shipping their products via a mediator; mediators will ship them to a warehouse before sending them directly to you.

Luckily, there are ways around the dilemma. All of these issues are solved by the Global Shopaholics Assisted Purchase option, so here’s a quick breakdown.

How It Works

The way Assisted Purchase works is simple. You simply let us know what you want to buy, by sharing with us the link to the product. We purchase the product and get it delivered to the warehouse.

Assisted Purchase is differentiated from Direct Purchase. A Direct Purchase is when you get your product delivered to your US shipping address in our warehouse and then ship it to your country. You’ll often be required to have a US phone number or US credit card. Assisted Purchase makes the process even simpler. You just let us know which product you want to buy, and we handle the rest. We’ll buy the product on your behalf, get it delivered to the warehouse (or a special address if the store doesn’t ship to a warehouse), and ship it directly to you.

All of this is made easy by the fact that, for you, the whole process takes place on a single form. If you have a Global Shopaholics account, you just have to fill the Assisted Purchase form available on your account and you’ll be done in minutes. Let’s take a look at how that works.

 

Here’s What You Have To Do

Step 1: Create Your Global Shopaholics Account

The only information you really need to provide to create your account is your name, email address and phone number. That’s it! Once your account is made and your email address has been verified, you can add your address so the company knows where to ship your items to.

Step 2: Select “Assisted Purchase” On The Dashboard

Once you’re signed in, the Assisted Purchase option is at the top of your dashboard. As soon as you select it, you’ll see the Assisted Purchase request form. You can enter the URL link to the product page for whatever you wish to buy. You can also do this for multiple items, entering details for the price and size of each one individually.

Once you’ve done so, you get to choose your shipping service, ‘normal’ or ‘expedited’. Expedited gives you quicker shipping for $10, while normal is for $5 and will require at least 2 business days.

Step 3: There Is No Step 3

Yup. That’s it. Once you’ve reviewed and submitted your form, you’re good to go. Global Shopaholics will purchase the products, get them delivered to the warehouse (or to a special address if the store does not deliver to a warehouse address), and then ship them to your country.

And just like that, welcome to 21st Century Shopping. All you have to do is know what you want. We’ll buy it for you. We’ll send it to you.

If you don’t have a Global Shopaholics account, creating one is simple and easy. You’ll get your own US shipping address with 180 days of storage and the most affordable package forwarding services. You can then ship anything from a US store to your US shipping address, whether by Direct Purchase or Assisted Purchase. If you want to ship multiple items from various stores, they’ll be kept in your storage, ready to be shipped to your country together.

And when you do decide to ship the items to your country, you can have the packages consolidated into one box to save on shipping costs. Global Shopaholics also offers guaranteed lowest international shipping costs, and a Price Match Guarantee, meaning if you find any other service offering a lower shipping cost, we’ll match it. You can sign up for Global Shopaholics for free.


At Global Shopaholics, we bring the best international shipping solutions for our customers!
