If you love shopping and always looking for the perfect shopping center to spend all your money, I think I found the place for you.

One of my most toxic traits is impulse buying.  It's not that I purposely do it, but it just sort of happens when I'm at any store.  If you brought me to a mall, don't think I'd leave that building empty-handed.  I'd have bags on top of bags full of clothes I really don't have room for in my closet!!!

One of the closest malls to me is in my hometown of Rockford, Illinois - Cherryvale Mall.  Honestly, this mall doesn't have the BEST selection or variety, so I tend to go out of the city to find larger malls to feed all my shopping desires.

The mall I usually go to is Schaumburg's Woodfield Mall.  It just so happens to be Woodfield just made the list for being one of the BEST shopping malls in Illinois and I totally agree with that!

"Woodfield has the finest collection of department stores and specialty shops in the Great Lakes region including Nordstrom, Macy's, Lord & Taylor, jcpenney, Sears and nearly 300 stores and restaurants."

There were plenty of other malls that made the list, but Woodfield is definitely an awesome, and easily the best, place to go if you're looking to shop for any types of gifts, clothing, or just to eat at their huge, remodeled food court!

I, personally, love stopping at the "Chill Bubble Tea" shop they have on the upper level by the Cheesecake Factory. The Boba is always really fresh and even though there's a long line every time I go, it's worth the wait!
