My 3 year old spectacles broke, don’t ask me how. So when Firmoo contacted me to try out their services, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. It is my first time ordering spectacles online though and I was worried that it would be a tedious process but to my delight, everything went on smoothly.
I had placed my order on 28th Oct night and received my glasses on 2nd Nov afternoon. That’s pretty fast and best of all, they fit so well. I didn’t even feel dizzy upon trying it out.
I discovered ShopBack after a friend on Facebook shared about receiving over S$50 in cashbacks through ShopBack.sg for her online purchases. Being an avid online shopper, I was naturally curious about this ShopBack and I wanted to find out more. So I checked out their website and was delighted to find that there were more than 60 over merchants on ShopBack, including my favorite online stores Zalora & Reebonz.
Wearing my favorite off-shoulder romper from Zalora
You see, I get most of my clothes and shoes from Zalora while Reebonz is a great place to get presentable luxury gifts at an affordable price. Shopping online has been made more enjoyable now that I know that I am able to receive cashbacks for my purchases through ShopBack! And because good things are meant to be shared, I am going to teach you on how you can start earning cashbacks through ShopBack.sg as well. Continue reading →
I’ve been spending so much time both window-shopping and doing actual shopping on Taobao.com that I’ve decided to dedicate a blog entry for it. And no, I am not sponsored by Taobao to do this but it’s just my way of sharing the bargains I’ve come across.
First and foremost, if you have not registered on Taobao yet or have no idea what to do. Please refer to their online guide, I’ve managed to start this crazy shopping madness all thanks to this guide. And if someone as clueless as me can understand this, then it should be pretty straightforward for everyone else.
In August, I’d finally joined the dark side and signed up for an account which resulted in 3 shipments that month alone. This september, I’d toned down reluctantly mainly due to a lack of funds (no thanks to credit card bills racked up in August by shopping on taobao) and only managed 2 shipments. The stuff which I usually buy are for my son. For my first shipment, I bought gifts for everyone; my husband, my mom and my sis, it was like as though I was on holiday in China. Lol!
My buys usually comprises of books, educational toys, bags, clothes, shoes and random cutesy stuff. I’ll be sharing some of the Dos and Don’ts of shopping on taobao.com Continue reading →

Just when I thought of going on a mini spree for more causal wear, ASOS’s main warehouse catches on fire, leaving the fashion retailer no choice but to shut down its website for the time being.
This notice was spotted on their website:
Apparently, this isn’t the first time it’s premises caught fire with a similar incident in 2006 when about $6.9 million worth of stock was lost. Anyway, we will be crossing our fingers for ASOS and hope that they would be back soon.
Last week, I spend an evening surrounded by dazzling and trendy jewelry pieces at 2am:dessert bar. It was the launch of Singapore’s fashion accessories brand, Claine by Elaine Chng. Her passion and love for jewelry runs in the family, with both parents being veterans in the local jewelry industry. If statement jewelry and unique finds are your thing, then you would be interested in what I have to share…
I have always been a minimalist and I don’t usually wear accessories except for maybe a pair of earrings when I bother to dress up more. And yet, when I see ladies with layered or chunky statement accessories, I feel envious but was convinced that it was not my style.
Yes, I’m as guilty as charged. Ever since I accidentally stumbled onto online shopping 12 years back (Oh no, I sound so old now). I’ve been buying practically almost everything online. From household groceries to baby supplies and even dog food, I get it all online. So naturally when it comes to my clothes, shoes and accessories, you bet that they are mostly bought online too.
I love how technology has brought the fashion world closer to us, we no longer need to set foot out of the house to purchase another dress. Just go online, click and check out. It is that simple. In fact, with the Internet, you could just check out the latest trends and what’s Princess Kate is wearing so that you can buy that same dress and hopefully cart out before it is sold out.
Even high fashion brands such as Burberry have jumped on board the online store bandwagon. Fans of the famous plaid prints can now check out their latest offerings on their webstore and cart out if anything catches your fancy. Other brands such as Chanel, have gone all social media savvy too and though you can’t buy a 2.55 online, you could however watch their latest fashion shows there or browse through their online catalogs.

I’m already in my third trimester but yet the number of maternity clothings I’d bought are less than 5 pieces. I try to get slightly loose pieces so that I can still wear them after I deliver. In fact, I was still wearing my work wear bought mainly from blogshops up till my 5th month.
So recently, I got an invitation fromLittle Black Dress Shop to try out their apparel. I’m not sure if they knew I was pregnant but anyway, I found a few loose pieces which I could wear now and also after I give birth. It’s that versatile.
They also have a range of other pretty apparels great for those of you who are not carrying a baby. Just visit them at Little Black Dress Shop
No, it’s not a game or forum nor is it a blogshop but it’s an online shopping platform. So Christmas is barely a week away while Chinese New Year is around a month and a week plus away. If you don’t know where to do your shopping, why not do it online? Let me share with you my latest obsession.
I’ve been spending every single day logged onto Gmarket. It’s like this infectious bug that just won’t go away. And since it’s the festive season, I’m constantly reminded through their daily newsletter of the promotions they’re having. All these just make it even harder to tear myself away from the computer screen.
