Second Gmarket Haul~

11 Comments »

Hello everyone!

Yes, I have another gmarket haul. The reason I made another one was because I won Top Blogger for April (Gmarket). As a reward, i received gift certificates to gmarket. They totally want me to shop more! LOL <3 I love this online store. I honestly decided to stop shopping in stores now and just shop via. Gmarket. It is so easy and I am able to get things I 100% love and the fit of the clothes fit better than American brand clothing (A lot of American clothing brands are still loose and don't fit correctly on my body).






The first item is this white cardigan(?)/jacket, that totally reminds me of jacket T-ara (티아라) wore during their promotions for the song Why are you being like this? (왜 이러니) I really like it and amazing quality!



This blue dress is just as gorgeous as in the stock photo. It is amazing quality and I just fell in love with the color.



I was looking for a dress for summer and found this. I think it looks super cute and just perfect for the hot season. Esp with a cancan or floppy sun hat ^^



I always wanted a quilted bag like this, yes it very Chanel like. I just always been a fan of quilted bags. I saw this and had to pick up one. I picked a light pink because I thought it will be a great change. I tend to always go for white/ivory colored things.
It is an amazing buy and the quality I can't believe how great it is!



Finally, I picked up these adorable pink heels. I was unsure of the quality of these shoes when I was buying them and I admit I was a bit scared. However, when I received them I was shocked! They looked exactly like the stock photos and they were of amazing quality. The soles were on well and they guled it extremely well. It also came with replacement rubber for the bottom of the heels.



Beautiful black lace dresss w/ tulle, very similar to the black dress from the previous gmarket haul but that one was my friend's. I ordered the same exact one, but the seller canceled it on me. So, I found this instead. Still gorgeous :]



Beige Sandals, I think they are quite comfy. I am unsure of the color with my skin color since I am quite tan. I got to try and figure out what I can wear with it.



White Lace Usamimi Headband, I have been seeing this everywhere and decided to get one for myself. I got the white lace because i prefer white lace over black lace. Also, I thought it was quite unique since I haven't seen a lace one around.


Youtube video will made soon~


Overall Opinion on gmarket:
I honestly think it is amazing, I do wish I lived in Korea since most sellers offer free shipping. I do admit overseas shipping is expensive, but if you make a large order with other people the shipping isn't all too bad. I think Gmarket is the perfect place for individuals who are interested in korean products/fashion. I won't be buying anymore clothes (maybe) in the states anymore or as often as I used to because of gmarket.

Please don't take my word for it but check it out yourself!

NARUKO HAUL!! ^^ + Question

5 Comments »

Hello hello everyone! How is everyone? Doing well I hope :]

If you follow me on twitter, you might have notice that I posted a picture of my Naruko Haul.

For those of you who do not know what Naruko is, Naruko is a taiwanese skin care brand that have been very popular all over Asia.

I was introduced to this brand by fuzkittie on youtube. I was amazed by the reviews on the many products from this brand and I thought I would give this brand a try. However...problems did arise.

First off of, Naruko the taiwanese website, I couldn't order off of there. I can't read chinese and I thought the ridiculous shipping wasn't worth getting it either. Then I found it on SASA.com, I was so happy and right as I was about to confirm my order, Sasa tells me the Naruko products were not allow to be ship to the States. So I was stuck. I didn't know what to do until I landed on the Naruko US website. However, there was still a problem. It was under construction!!! I was about to give up until I finally just emailed the company. Luckily, I received a fast response that stated that they added a add cart button and I was able to order! That totally made my day and I was off to attack the website (not really...)




I made the order on the 6th of May and it was shipped on the 10th of May. I received it on the 11th. :OOOOO
I was screaming for joy when I saw the package (I am such a freak) and couldn't wait to use it.

I only bought two items because I didn't want to go overboard. The prices on the US webite are a tad bit higher than the prices on the taiwanese website. However, I thought about it with shipping from both websites and how it would be different. I believe you are paying around the same price? However, I could be wrong.

Here are the links to the items I bought!
Niaouli & Tea Tree Acne Clay Cleanser
Niaouli & Tea Tree Balancing Serum

I chose these particular products due to my struggle with acne and scars. I hope a miracle will happen!

Please stay tune for a future review!


QUESTION
I really like to interact with all my readers and viewers and I was wondering if I should make a Facebook fan page? I am not saying you guys are my fans! I just want to be able to have a place where I will be able to interact with everyone. I really like talking to my followers/subscribers. If you think it is a good idea please let me know!


Thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing evening~ ^^

Where to get all the Asian goodies?

2 Comments »

I realize a number of people have always been curious as to where to get asian products such as make up, skin care, fashion (jewlery, clothes), music, dramas, and etc. I wanted to make a list for my readers so that it will be easier for a number of you to get access to your needs.

(not in a specific order) I am not affiliated with any of these websites mention; I just thought this would be useful to a number of people.

Zipia
I love ZIPIA! However, I dislike the $300 minimum =___= So I just browse the website for fashion inspiration.

Gmarket
Great place for anything korean! Clothes, Shoes, Bags, Music, Posters, Notebooks, Cameras, and etc.

Pretty and Cute
A great place for people living in the states to get access to Asian Make Up/Skin Care, as well as a number of different accesories~
This website is owned by the lovely Janie, now I have talked to her a few times through facebook and she is a total sweetheart!

To February
I find that this website is a great source for asian jewelry; they are affordable and shipping is only $1 within the states!
They also carry clothes, cell phone charms, and other cool items!

Yes Style
I am a find of Yesstyle, due to their San Francisco store. I think this website is easily accesible to people who are not living in Korea, Japan, China, or other Asian countries. Because they carry a number of different brands from different countries. I do find the prices of the items kind of high, which is why it is better to attack the site when there are sales!

Yes Asia
A great source to get your Asian entertainment from! If you do not have a place to get it near you. You should check this website out. They also sell fan items, posters, and just a bunch of things you wouldn't expect. I used to buy from here when I was unable to find certain albums in stores.

Imomoko
Want to get your hands on the latest Japanese make up? I found this website through fuzkittie and I was so happy to find a store that was located in the states, because I often hated waiting for my items from overseas. T___T

Ebay
You wouldn't think you can find tons of Asian products on there huh? Well, I know it is a great place to find Asian fashion for an affordable price. As for make up/skin care, you have to be careful, there are fakes floating around there!


This is my list for now. I can't think of anymore websites off the top of my head, but if I do I will edit this post with the links!
