I Bought Stuff on Didddle for Free … ?

Update:

– Didddle.com has been shut down
– Didddlefashion.com is active with the same layout


I love online shopping, who wouldn’t enjoy shopping from the comfort of their home not having to take rounds just to find a parking space. You can find products not actually sold in your country and get them directly to your door easily (on some occasions). I’ve been shopping online for awhile to know what would a reliable website look like and I came across a certain website through a tweet I saw on twitter that day which looks like this.

didddle_scam2

I’ve seen this tweet circulate a lot recently and I haven’t seen a single website talk about this. So I had to go to check this website out and how exactly things are sold for free, and here’s what I found out.

didddle_scam

It’s 100% a scam and I don’t know why no one really called them out yet because I was searching about it and nothing comes up related to it, if you search this website through Scam Advisor it’ll show that it’s somewhat safe. I went on and tried the website anyway because I wanted to get to the bottom of this, and on the front page it looks like a legit Shopify website that sells high quality products. On the bottom of the front page, it doesn’t really have the usual things you see normally in shopping websites, for example check boohoo website.

and here’s Didddle.

There’s no way to contact them, there’s no About us page, there’s no information whatsoever about this website. This is one of the red flags you get when you want to go online shopping and also the website doesn’t really offer PayPal payment, they instantly ask you for your card information. I went on with this website and decided to see how far it’ll go in making you buy stuff from the website and I chose 3 items and it only asked me to pay for shipping just like the tweet I mentioned in the beginning stated.

It took from my card the shipping amount and they sent me an email that the order is confirmed but what caught my attention was the last part of the email.

didddle_3

The contact email is on Yahoo, not even from the main website domain which is definitely sketchy. I tried sending emails to it and of course I didn’t get any response, it’s been two weeks already and I don’t think I’ll ever get those items or get a reply back.

If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

LightInTheBox Haul

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a haul so I thought I’ll squeeze this one in since I made this order during Black Friday sales. I love shopping and I like showing off what I bought so obviously expect haul posts every once in a while.

Hakuna Matata Shirt
Price: 
$7.99

I fell in love with this shirt the moment I saw it. It comes in one size and I would say it’s between M and L so it’s roomy and comfortable to wear. I love the colors, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to fade when you wash it. The material is light cotton so it’s more for spring and summer climate.

Rate: 5/5

vyazjj1443147442674Solid Grey Shirt
Price: $9.99

The material of this shirt is quite thin cotton and not thick enough for colder weather. It’s quite loose but I got it in size XL anyway because I’m still insecure about my body shape. It’s really comfortable and long enough to be worn with a pair of leggings.

Rate: 5/5

xffdcw1439290081674Patchwork Peach and Grey Blouse
Price: $15.99

I don’t know why the color is listed orange while it looks more peach-ish, anyway it looks really pretty in the picture but it turned out the inside part is see-through from front and back so you’ll need to wear something under it unless you’re fine showing your bra. I got it in size L because I like wearing these tops with leggings or skinny jeans, it fits really nicely.

Rate: 4/5

.


Overall, LightInTheBox has literally anything I can think of and I know for fact I could waste all my money there and I won’t really regret it. I also bought a XIAOMI 3S android box since I’ve been enjoying Chromecast lately and I wanted to experiment if I can install VPN in it, problem is the device is fully functional in Chinese but there’re few tutorials how to change it to English. Anyway if you want me to  review these kind of devices, please let me know you in the comments.

I hope you enjoyed this little haul and have a great day.

Dresslink Haul

It’s been quite awhile since I did a Dresslink haul, it became my favorite shopping website. The website has changed couple of weeks ago and it looks really elegant and fancy, even the models photos are in higher quality so I had to check it out. The items I chose aren’t as cheap as the ones I reviewed before.


svb030775-1-dresslinkMermaid Tail Blanket

Price: US$ 14.24
I’ve always wanted to buy this blanket, I found it on Etsy for $60 so I was really thrilled to find it on Dresslink in a cheaper price. It’s really comfy and warm, I’m honestly obsessed with it already. The color is vibrant and pretty, my favorite.

amh006244_gr-2-dresslinkDrawstring Hooded Cloak Cape Asymmetrical Hem Dress

Price: US$ 13.31
I bought this because I’m going to UK soon and I’m sure it’s going to be cold by this time. I chose it in XL to be safe and I wanted some room so I can wear a lighter shirt under it. It’s really comfortable and thick so it’s going to keep me warm pretty well since I get cold way too fast.

.

Overall, I like Dresslink’s new changes in the website and service, they are still my favorite since they ship really fast. The items I received were higher quality than the clothes I bought before so I guess it explains why the prices went up slightly. I hope you enjoyed this mini haul from Dresslink, have a nice day.

Dresslink Haul

Hey everyone

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you would know that I’m a shopaholic and I have absolutely no self-control at times. I’ve posted about Dresslink before when I tested  it out in a first impression mini haul and then later did a decent haul review. I have a new haul from Dresslink and of course this post isn’t in any way sponsored.


SVH031046-6Casual Women Sleeveless Metal Chain Print High Low Hem Maxi Tank Dress

Price: US$ 5.59
Color: White
I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw the images and I was hoping it would turn out same the picture because in the end it’s a Chinese website so I have to put my expectations low. It’s really beautiful and it’s made out of light cotton and it’s quite stretchy, the back part ends at my ankles so it was perfect length for me since I’m short (5’1″). The print looks really good and I like the chain going around it, I got it in size L as usual to be safe but honestly it’s a slim fit type of dress so part of me is still not confident about my figure after childbirth but it looked pretty good on me.

SV027752-8Fashion Ladies Women Casual Geometric Print Long Sleeve Front Open Asymmetric Hem Tops Cardigan Coat

Price: US$ 6.25
Color: Gray
This would be a cardigan that I would never look at usually but I’m going through a geometric phase so I needed it in my life. It’s so colorful and pretty, also stretchy. It doesn’t cover the rear area, it ends by the ending of the back. Overall I really love it, it would look great with a plain white shirt and jeans, perfect for fall season.
Rate: 5/5


SVH031047-5Fashion Women Long Sleeve Striped Asymmetrical Hem Button Down Shirt Dress

Price: US$ 5.59
I have mixed feelings about this, I love it because it looks like a huge button shirt and that’s something new for me to go for but I also don’t like it because of the material. It looks great to be honest but maybe because I’m not used to polyester, I somehow get sweaty easier in clothes with that material. Maybe I’ll change my mind when I start wearing it because I’m only saying this based on trying it out once and that’s it.

SVH031119-1New Fashion Women Elastic Waist Pants Drawstring Print Thick Slim Leg Casual Sports Trousers

Price: US$ 5.81
Color: Gray
So this is my first time buying pants from Dresslink and I’m honestly obsessed with stars so I chose these pants thinking I would make them my new favorite pajama pants. I chose it in size XL because I’ve never bought pants from Dresslink before so I don’t know how the measurements would be, it turned out really tight though I would prefer more roomy type of pants. In the label it was written XL but there was a small label under it with 9 written on it so I guess that’s why it was tight on me, I normally wear size 12 for pants. It’s quite thick so it would be great in keeping my legs warm in colder climate.
Rate: 4/5


SVH031118-4New Fashion Women Elastic Drawstring Waist Pants Floral Print Casual Sports Slim Leg Full Trousers

Price: US$ 5.59
Another pants and I chose the same size as the previous one XL but this one actually  fits pretty well and it’s quite roomy. The print on the pants are pretty much like those 3D printed jumpers you see everywhere so I would consider it good quality.

SV029774-1New Fashion Women Long Sleeve Knitting Print Patchwork Sweaters Loose Casual Basic Tops

Price: US$ 4.80
Again with the geometric phase like the cardigan, this top is one of my favorites from this haul. The only thing I didn’t like about it is that it’s see-through so I have to wear something under it unless I want to show my bra to everyone. I got it in size L and it’s really flowy and comfortable, got two pocket in front same as the picture. I absolutely love it.

NP000336-3Women Spaghetti Strap A-Line Asymmetrical Hem Print Mini Dress

Price: US$ 9.19
Color:Black
I’ve put this dress on the wishlist for quite sometime and recently decided to add it with this haul even though it would be more appropriate to be worn in summer because the material of this top is quite light and good for more sunny climate. It has a strap to be tied from the back of the neck but it’s quite roomy maybe because I got it in size L but it doesn’t bother me that much in fact I like it more that way.
Rate: 5/5


SVH031291-2Women’s Casual O-Neck Long Sleeve Fleece Pullover Letter Hoodie Sweatshirt

Price:US$ 4.78
Color: Black
I posted a picture of this jumper on my snapchat and Instagram story and everyone has been sending me messages from where I got this jumper. I’ve been seeing this line on twitter for awhile now, I thought it was quite funny so when I found it on this jumper I instantly bought it. It’s definitely my favorite item from this haul, I got it in size XL because I love over-sized sweatshirts but since it’s a Chinese website I would say it’s between M and L so giving you a warning before choosing your size. It’s quite thick so it’s good for colder climate and the print of the letters seem in a good quality.
Rate: 5/5


SVH031268-1Pokemon GO Women Ladies O-Neck Raglan Long Sleeve Hot Game Print Slim T-Shirt Tops

Price:US$ 4.01
Color: Black
Is Pokemon GO still a thing ? I know I still play it to be honest, I don’t mind being late in leveling up. I bought this top with the Mystic team logo on it because why not, I’m in team mystic and proud to be. The shirt is a normal jersey type long sleeved shirt, had few loose threads but other than that it’s great. The print of the logo is in good quality so I don’t think it’ll fade anytime soon.
Rate: 5/5


Overall total with shipping: US$59.95

CNDirect First Impression

CNDirect_logo

 

Online shopping is my favorite bad habit, I love finding new things not available in my country and just brag about it. I recently tried shopping from Dresslink and posted a review about it, so I decided to check other websites that offer cheaper clothes just like it and I found CNDirect.

First look on the website shows that they offer almost same as Dresslink but I noticed they got more categories like men clothing, home & garden, and automobile things as well. They have more options than Dresslink with almost same price range so I chose few items to try out this website. This post isn’t sponsored, I bought all this items on my own.SV029050-3-cndirect

Lady Fashion Women Long Sleeve O Neck Loose Lace Trim Solid Casual Sexy Mini Shift Dress

I got this top because I thought it would look cute with leggings and I loved the color. The top came out exactly as the image but the color was slightly darker, I wasn’t bothered by that I still liked it. I got it in size L because asian sizes makes me feel insecure about my body.
Price: US$ 6.48

Rate: 5/5

Green Women’s Loose Batwing Top Dolman Multi color Stripe Strand Vest Tops Blouses

This top came in two pieces, a tank top and a chiffon sheer top. The tank top was tight but it’s stretchable, the chiffon top wasn’t exactly the best material I came across. It looked cheap if I’m gonna be honest but I wasn’t keeping my hopes high because the whole website sells cheap clothes so I expected that. I can say it looks nice to take pictures with because from further angle it doesn’t show the material.
Price: US$ 4.78

SV010267-1-cndirect

Drawstring Bag Shoulder Messenger Bag Women Handbag Chain Bag Diagonal Package Canvas Totes

The last item I got was this super cute bag which I’m gonna say my favorite item from this haul. I love this type of bags so I instantly chose it and it came out exactly as the picture. The outside of this bag looks great and colorful but the inside had a cheap looking material. I haven’t tried the straps on it yet to check how durable they are, will update this section once I do.
Price: US$ 3.99

Rate: 5/5


I made the order on 09/06/2016
Received on HK aramex account on 11/06/2016

FedEx delivered the package on the date I mentioned but didn’t mention the account number for my aramex account so the package sat there for quite sometime till I messaged both CNDirect and Aramex about it. The package was later sorted out on 02/07/2016 which annoyed me because they took this long time to get it right.

The total price of these three items: US$ 15.89
I chose (Expedited Shipping without tracking number) by accident but I got a tracking number either way: US$ 6.49
Shipping Insurance US$ 1.12
Total: US$ 23.50

Overall, despite the whole delay that happened I liked the items I bought from this website. I’m still reluctant about buying from it again but I might because the website has more items than Dresslink.

img_3133-1Last night I was invited to what we arabs call a Malka (ملكه) of someone from my husband’s family, it’s like a wedding but slightly smaller mostly for closer people to the newly weds like friends and family members. I honestly didn’t want to go because it’s like in the middle of the week and I might return home late, my son isn’t used to me being away for a long time. Anyway it was fun I guess even for an anti-social like me.

I wore a purple Moroccan outfit which I absolutely love since it actually fits me now. I finally managed to do a winged eyeliner and I’ll just consider that as my greatest achievement of 2016, all those hours watching YouTube tutorials finally paid off.
