Yes, noticed it on my phone this morning, and on my laptop just now I'm scrolling down and there's a big socks ad on the front page of the website

We're having a tinker with a few things (surprise, ads are one of them haha), so the site may look a bit different over the next few weeks - please bear with us while we explore different options!

Oh good it's not just me! I thought my phone was redirecting me to somewhere else when my entire screen was an ad, and it didn't look like BR! I closed out and restarted a few times before giving up.

At least its not as invasive as my friends,  the spammers.  And cos our phones spy on us (where is my tinfoil hat...) theyll be tailor made to us hahaha rather than spammers choice of pens, watches or limp noodle bahahahahaha

So glad it's not just me. I thought I was on the wrong site. Glad it's only temporary I find it super distracting. Hopefully there are some better ad options than the current ones.

I found they definitely made the site slow and unusable on my phone, counted over 13 ads just scrolling down the entire home page. Thankfully on my computer I use ad block for all websites, so I don't have to deal with the ads.

@AboutFace you definitely can, just how to varies a lot depending on what phone and browser you use! A lot of websites now notice if you use Adblock and request you to disable it to access the site which I understand as they need revenue but I'm blocking ads as they're usually spammy and for like dodgy stuff i.e singles in your area, so I defs don't want to see the ads haha

On that note though, can no longer see any ads on the site when accessing from my phone (where I don't have Adblock)!

I actually did an order from The Warehouse today as my local 4 square doesn't sell any garnier products and I needed face wash badly.  I tend to buy a lot from trade me so I miss that!

I'm missing Mighty Ape, Mecca and Wish lol.

I did however make a purchase from Bonbon Factory for some of their hand sanitizer. It's getting rave reviews and they are shipping, so thought I would try it out. 

I also placed an order for my usual essential oils but as it's coming from the US, I'm unsure as to when it will get here etc.

Is Wish still cheap with import taxes mumofthree? I love their clothes. People always comment when I wear their clothes because they're different from the production line stuff you can buy in NZ.

My unofficial survey of FB users indicates curry is the most missed takeaway. Mine would be Maccas!! I wouldn't turn down a chinese takeout either.

MareeB - definitely noticed the difference in the price with Wish now but they are still cheaper compared to buying here or from anywhere else.

Plus they have some really awesome items that you can't get from anywhere else and the quality is pretty good too. I love their clothes as well, and their shoes.

I bought a scalp massager from there for about $35 including shipping. The home show here in NZ was selling an equivalent one for over $150-$200.The Wish one works amazing and has been really helpful for my headaches and migraines. Its charged by USB, not batteries which is awesome. Going to buy another one as a back up lol

My iHerb order arrived today! It actually got here faster than usual. It only arrived in Auckland yesterday and usually it's gets held up there for ages in customs etc. 

I had a quick look at the warehouse at the essentials and got excited to see desks and office chairs as I desperately need to set up a proper home office. But they're all sold out and interestingly, the really expensive office chairs are listed as essentials but the cheap ones aren't! Hmmmm....I'm really hoping that Kmart are allowed to sell essentials online as they have a desk that I like.

Interesting times soozie - today I paid $45 for $30 worth of supplements at the pharmacy. Its worth not going into Countdown with the crowds to get them, but all the same, it is criminal.

I can't even but my supplements in NZ at the moment so very happy to get them from iHerb before they go out of stock again. 

So, after that last post, I thought I'd have a look at Kmart again. And they are now selling essentials! Sadly not desks and chairs though. You can buy cushions (and bath bombs ffs) but not chairs to put them on. Arghhhh!!!

Have noticed there are less ads and the ones i'm seeing are relevant. Definitely a better system.
