Etsy Stores I Recommend

When it comes to gifts, I like to take my time in planning the perfect gift. I focus more in keeping the gift fitted for that person character and personality, that’s why I decided to create a box with personalized gifts for my cousin who’s getting married in few days. I mentioned before that I love and support handmade products, that’s why I love shopping on Etsy. Here are the stores I bought from and I would recommend if you’re considering buying similar items.

Ladyville

I found this store while searching for jewelry with real flowers because I was considering getting my cousin a four leaf clover necklace. I fell in love with the items I found on this store and I had to order, the seller is very helpful. The necklace came looking even better than the pictures displayed on Etsy, the details are mesmerizing and you can tell so much work went into creating this piece. I highly recommend the store.


Yippee & Co.

I’m all for bath and body products, I love trying new soaps or scrubs. I was searching for a similar sugar scrub I got from MerLady box because I really liked those cubes before and I found this store that sold a mermaid themed sugar scrub but in a whipped form. I bought Mermaid Wishes and it looked and smelled delicious according to my cousin, it had glitter so it’ll leave your skin shining after use.


Around The Home Decor

I wanted to get a personalized candle but I got intrigued with this store’s candles since the fragrance list had one named “Butt Naked”, I remember giggling while ordering it because it’ll be funny to see my cousin’s reaction. The candle arrived fast and it actually had a great scent, I already promised the seller to buy more from her because she was sweet and helpful when I ran into an issue with the shipping.


I bought plenty more items from other stores but those three stores were my favorite because the sellers were very helpful and kind whenever I send a private message to them, the items I received were in high quality state and I would highly recommend to anyone to check them out.

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.

didddle4

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.

didddle_2

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.

I Bought a Useless Box …

If you are confused from the title, let me explain. There’s this item I’ve been wanting for a while and it’s called a Useless Box, I remember seeing it on twitter and I instantly said I want it.

I don’t know why I wanted it, I just thought “I need this in my life” so obviously I went to LightInTheBox and found it for about $8.90 and here how it looks ..

IMG_20170604_230907

It’s well-made and I was honestly surprised from the quality of it, it’s made out of sturdy wood. So you open up the box to insert batteries to make it function and that’s it, you switch it on and it turns itself off. I get it, I pay for weird stuff I find online but I thought it would make a funny office toy. Honestly I’m having fun with it, it’s not exactly that useless.

Hope you enjoyed this short post and have a great day.

LightInTheBox Haul

It’s been awhile since I posted a haul entry, as you know I’m quite a shopaholic when it comes to online shopping. LightInTheBox is a website for some reason I can’t stop buying from, you would know from the previous posts that I did before.

I recently started watching Assassination Classroom and Danganronpa so I wanted to get something related to these anime so I got these two shirts:

 xtuhvt1463727701183Assassination Classroom Shirt

Price: $15.99

I LOVE Korosensei, I want him to be my teacher. I was excited to get this shirt for that but I was disappointed that it’s not exactly like the picture on the website. The sleeves weren’t black, it was a plain white but the middle graphic is exactly like the picture. It’s a normal shirt nothing special about it, I like it anyway.

.

zmnncc1402048941276Danganronpa Monokuma Shirt

Price: $19.99

I’ve always wanted to buy a Monokuma Plushie but I wouldn’t mind a shirt so I got this shirt. Like the previous shirt, it’s not like the picture on the website. The logo of Hope’s Peak Highschool on the sleeve isn’t there and also the logos on the back aren’t there which is disappointing because I was really looking forward for this shirt.


Overall, I was really disappointed with the quality of the shirts to be honest. I also bought another two shirts and yoga clothing set which turned out looking great so it’s not all bad haul but I thought of posting these two since they both go together under anime category while the other clothing items are more for the gym.

Hope you enjoyed this post and have a nice day.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Crest Metal Key Chain

Price: $8.90
Honestly I chose this for no reason, it looks cool and I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. The key chain is quite heavy and big for my usual choice of key chains but I love it.

Rate: 5/5

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children Stay Peculiar Girls Peplum Tank Top

Price: $34.90
I guess I’m still hung over the movie that I fell in love with this top. It’s stretchy and I love the detailing in the shoulders, definitely going to be my favorite top after I get bored from the Hakuna Matata shirt I got from LightInTheBox recently.

Rate: 5/5

I love Pusheen and I love sushi so seeing both of them in this cute wallet made me fangirl for a bit … maybe more. It’s so cute and I’m really obsessed with it.

Maybe I went a little overboard with this haul, going over my usual budget but it was my birthday and I wanted to spoil myself because I deserve to be happy.

Anyway I hope you enjoyed this haul, have a great day.

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.
