Online Shopping: Mart of china Review

 photo martofchina0_zps8c57dc3b.jpg
 
Happy Saturday my little choco babies!
 
 Up until a year ago, I have never really been into shopping online until I had my paypal activated and my first online order (a pretty white dress) arrive within two weeks of hitting check-out. Flash forward to today, I can pretty much say that I'm an online shopping junkie. I am a known patron of instagram and online stores, and among one of my recent finds, is this quaint online store called Mart of china. 
 
As much as I would love to go on and on about the site (which will probably bore you to death and make you exit this post asap T_T), I have decided to make a look book of pieces from the shop instead. I have narrowed down some products I think you guys would love to check out in the post below.

floral patchwork grey sweater  //  leopard print backpack
 
For the sweet girl next door: 
I found this beautiful sweater that had floral fabric cut outs on the side, and I think this would look great with the pastel leopard backpack on a casual date with the boyfriend to the park or on a shopping date with the girls.

For the fierce fashionista:
Patterned clothing, like this checkered dress, is a trend nowadays. Since this dress can look too basic, I added subtle pieces such as this gold heeled ankle boots and gold accessory to make this outfit pop.

For the party girl:
 I am in love with the cut outs on this bodycon dress. Since everything is held together with the semi-transparent mesh, you can be sure that you can rock the night away without having one of those Lindsay Lohan moments. Oops, flashed you sorry. Pair it with the perfect pair of heels and you are good to go out the front door and into the hottest night clubs.

 For the back-to-school (or work) girl:
If I were given a chance to go back to school, I would wear this to class in a heart beat! I adore this cute tan cardigan with the little geeky rabbit on the pocket. And doesn't this buckle shoulder bag remind you of the red backpacks japanese kids use to go to school with? I love that it looks classy and the dark accents make it seem fitting for work. And to top it all up, I would wear this with the cutest faux fur ankle pumps for the innocent, youthful vibe.

And now, for the nitty gritty of things, here is the final verdict for Mart of China:

Pros:
Cheaper than most online stores
Has more choices for both men and women
Products are usually one of a kind and in trend
Usually receive the product in the same color in the shop

Cons:
Waiting time of 2-4 weeks when shipped internationally
Silk clothes tend to be crumpled when it arrives
 
Will I shop again?
Yes. Definitely. Items here are of good quality and are worth the wait.
 
2 to 4 weeks wait time is not very bad ,onsidering that you are purchasing unique clothes at a fraction of the price. I usually order items adding up to below $50 so I wouldn't have to pay customs dues at the post office whenever I claim them. Since silk or chiffon is a very temperamental fabric, it tends to get crumpled during shipping - but nothing too major as you can just iron out the creases anyway.

Leave me your thoughts and questions below. I would love to hear what you think :D

    1. BUYER BEWARE. I purchased from this site, when the item arrived the seams in 4 places were not even sewn, I took to a dressmaker and was quoted more than I paid for the item to have it fixed because there was not enough material in and to fix it would have to have plain inserts of a different material. When I told the company and asked for a refund they offered to send me another one if I purchased something else. Then they offered me a part refund which was not even the postage cost, how do I know because I posted the thing back to them and now they say they have not received it. I will never purchase anything from this site again, and I highly recommend no one else does either. The only good reviews I've seen are possibly from their own people because they sound more like adds than reviews.

2nd BDJ Women's Summit {Giveaway Closed}

Hello darlings! Welcome back to the blog. Today, I'll be showing you what transpired last weekend at the 2nd BDJ Women's Summit. This charitable event was not only inspirational, but it also paved a way for people to get in touch with causes that benefit the women and children of the Philippines. These partner organizations include: Ahon sa Hirap Inc., Angat Buhay, ECPAT PH, Kinamot Nga Buhat, Grace to be Born, Elsie Gaches, Miss Possibilities Foundation, Fairplay for All Foundation, Girls Got Game PH, Plush and Play, as well as Jacinto and Lirio.


I took my friend with me to the Summit Talks and we thoroughly enjoyed their stories. Among the amazing line up of speakers, my absolute favorite ones were about BDJ founder, Darlyn Ty's beginnings and OFW turned Businesswoman, Rebecca Bustamante-Mills success story. It just goes to show that anybody can make it big with small beginnings.

Unboxing the BDJ Elite Box 2017 : Colour Collection

Hello my darlings! Today, we will be unboxing my first BDJ Elite Box. I have been curious about these boxes for a while now, so I jumped in excitement when the team from BDJ sent me this care package. :)


You can get all of these items from Colour Collection, which retails for more than 4,000 all together, for only Php 1480 at bdjbox.com/bdj-box. I highly suggest this for any beginner makeup artist since you can grow your kit with these essential makeup items.


The All Day Wear Lengthening Mascara (P399) and Brow Mascara (P399) are the perfect duo in creating that sleek eye makeup look. The brow mascara is very pigmented so swipe conservatively. :)


The 14HR Liquid Eye Liner Pen (P369) is very sharp and pigmented. I wore this to work the other day and it was very jet black - I love it! :)


This Eye Shadow Trio Palette (P399) is the bomb! It's matte but not too pigmented, so it's very forgiving for first time users. I am totally into Dove Cameron's makeup look and I found that…
