Shop: Buro's picks to mend lonely hearts this Singles' Day
While some turn to eating to quell unpleasant emotions, others choose to get even. But what happens when neither of the above affords the satisfaction desired? Option three: A shopping spree.
Born of the '90s in China, Singles' Day (as its name suggests, is dedicated to individuals without partners) evolved into an e-shopping frenzy in 2009 when online mall Alibaba offered up mega discounts on par with America's Black Friday. Except, to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home sans snaking queues and almost riots, on 11 November.
A bevvy of e-tailers have hopped onto the bandwagon since, including Zalora that is offering up to 70% off brands such as Topshop, Topman, Mango, Superdry, Daniel Wellington and more — with a surprise parcel tacked onto every order in spirit of giving all single souls the treats they deserve. Sweet.
