Would You Recommend an Online Store?

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with online shopping. Since I’ve been teaching myself on makeup applications, especially on different looks on eye shadows, I’ve bought a ton of makeup tools already. I even recently bought a Sigma F80 brush that I can’t wait to claim from customs. 😀 Pfft. I have to pay extra Php 40, plus additional for transportation. The reason why I bought from their site directly is because I want to be 100% sure that I’m buying genuine Sigma F80 brushes. I’m a bit of a paranoid when it comes to buying anything expensive like a Php 700+ brush so I chose to do it directly from them.

Anyway, I wanted to know what online sites or stores would you recommend or buy from. Currently, I can only attest and highly recommend these online stores:

  • Digital Traincase – I’ve bought Nyx products (eye primer, a lippie and eyeliner) and China Glaze Crackle from them. Will be posting a review here very soon. 🙂Nyx products and China Glaze Crackle I bought from Digital Traincase
  • behappywithme – I’ve mentioned about buying numerous beauty products from them. The seller was VERY helpful. I would recommend buying Skinfood products from this store ’cause I got the Skinfood Black Bean Eye Brow Pencil for half the price! 🙂
  • DBGadgets – I bought my Canon IXUS 220HS from them. Fast transaction and the camera is still with me and still works like brand new. The price was way cheaper than if I bought from somewhere else. I’m planning on buying new lens for my Nikon D3100 from them soon. 🙂My Canon IXUS 220HS I bought from DBGadgets

I’ve got a few more, but I have to try out more of their products first before I can recommend them here. I’m also planning on buying shoes online to see if it’ll work for me too. I hate roaming around malls and not find the style I want. So far, I’ve got a ton of online stores (mostly on Multiply – I love the Marketplace!) I’ve bookmarked their sites and hopefully, I can make a purchase by the end of this month. I’m eyeing on this particular black wedge shoes and I’ll show them to you once I’ve bought them.

I’m hoping to get your thoughts on this as well.  So, pretty, pretty please. Answer these questions through the comments section:

  • What online stores have you bought from and you would recommend?
  • What have you bought from them?
  • Tell me why you recommend the store.

The online stores don’t have to be selling kikay stuff or just shoes and makeup. Recommend any store, even those that sell furniture (I’m in the market for a new computer desk and chair!) or anything you’d think I’d be interested in. I’m a geek, a foodie and a kikay wannabe. 😀

Can’t wait to read about your recommendations! 🙂

Review: Juicy Scented Earphones : A Cool, Fruity Idea

I remember back in my younger years, I used to own several scented pens, erasers, notepads, and those tiny air fresheners I loved collecting. Though some of the kids my age at that time might have thought there’s no sense in owning these sweet-smelling items, remember Legally Blonde? The scent does add something to the usual stuff like writing or completing an assignment, etc. Now, how about these Juicy Electronics Scented earphones? I say it’s a cool, fruity idea.

I got a box of the Juice Box scented earphones in Apple scent for review. I took several photos of the packaging and if you check my album, you’d realize how much I LOVED the whole juice carton box concept. 😀

The box even has Nutrion Information, just like an actual juice box

The sides even have a space for Nutritional Information, but if you read closely, you’d see they scored 100% on bass, clarity, comfort and experience. Pretty cool, inventive packaging.

Giveaways Galore #1

Since I barely have time now to share all the giveaways I wanted to join or have awesome prizes, I thought I’ll just do a quick weekly roundup for you. The prizes may range from gift certificates, beauty products, gadgets, and more. If you have a giveaway you’d like me to include on every Giveaway Galore post, just comment with the link.

There are a bunch of other international giveaways I’ve joined, but I decided not to share them since they have a lonnggggggg list of mechanics. I usually don’t recommend giveaways like them here. I even found a Kitchen Aid giveaway. I joined without really any hope I’d win. It’s open internationally and you know how many people would want to get their hands on a free Kitchen Aid mixer. 😀

If you know of any international or local giveaways where the prizes are kitchenware, cooking tools, or even GrillsDirect.com grills, please, please, let me know. 🙂
