Kmart’s online exclusives range has landed and goodbye paycheck, hello homewares

It's undeniable to both ourselves and our bank accounts that our love for Kmart is eternal. Feeling down? Take a trip to your local store and you'll walk out with things you don't need, but also an improved overall wellbeing. Feeling great already? Step into Kmart and you'll somehow walk out feeling better ... and probably with a new throw, some PJs and a lamp. It's a mood-boosting, serotonin-giving shopping experience and yes, as you can you tell, we are kind of addicted. It's our duty, fellow Kmart enthusiasts, to inform you that the much-loved retailer has just unveiled an exclusive online range. We knew we memorised our credit card digits for a reason. more

It’s what’s on the inside that counts – glow from within with The Glowing Skin Co.
