Here are some tips to be well prepared the d-day:

1) First of all, as you know, you’ll be standing during a long time doing the queue at the checkpoint and walking from stores to stores, so what you have to know is that your shoes can be your best friend or your worst ennemy, so choose the right one, those which will be comfortable and light that you can wear it all day long. Another little advice, choose ones which can be removed easily, do not wear thigh boots with laces.


2) Just once will not hurt, we advice you to go by car, like that you can believe yourself from all your buyings as one goes along to not be exhausted at the end of the day.



3) Third and last advice, above all during the winter sales, don’t hesitate to dress warm, even if you know you’ll be warm in the stores because of the different heatings, it’s a trap and you can easily get sick like this. Indeed, the temperatures changes are very dangerous for your health, so bring with you your Comtesse Sofia’s scarf and everything will be alright!
