LOTM X Geo Xtra Diamond Gray Lens

The lens that I'm wearing recently is Geo Xtra Diamond Gray, WT-B35, from lust to lush! The design for this pair is pretty unique, like the cut of a diamond. Was hoping that this pair will make my eyes sparkle, and it does (a little)!

My favourite shopping buddy - 65Daigou!

Yoohoo, I'm going to introduce my favourite shopping buddy today - 65Daigou! This blog post is going to spoil the market for some blogshops, opps... But good things must share right?

I'm sure most of you know about Tao Bao, it is a website based in China that sells practically anything and everything at super low prices. (PSST, if you're lucky, you can find items which blogshops are selling at a quarter of the price over there.) Once you enter that site, you'll be window shopping for hours just like me....

OOTD at less than $25, can you believe it??? The whole outfit - top, skirt, slingbag and heels - costed me less than $25 before international shipping, crazy cheap!! Read on to know where and how you can shop for such cheap and nice items~

dsc02222_2

I got to know about Tao Bao many years ago actually, but I had zero idea how to use their site, how to ship the items from overseas and I didn't have a credit card to make payment to overseas websites.. Ever since I discovered 65Daigou about a year back, I've been shopping on Tao Bao like mad!

main

65Daigou can help us with the ordering, payment, liasing as well as shipping process.. They saved me a lot of trouble and confusion while shopping! Basically, I just need to decide on which items that I want to get and make payment for them. 65Daigou will do everything else, easy peasy!

I'm sure 65Daigou will become your favourite shopping buddy in time to come! :)

Here are 5 main reasons why you'll love them!

1. 65Daigou's site is in English.


One of the main reason holding us back from shopping on Taobao is the language barrier right? I know many of the youngsters can't read chinese very well nowadays, and making payment to a website in a language that you're not comfortable with feels so scary! 65Daigou's site is in english, so all payment information as well as order updates are stated clearly in english!

2. They accept almost any type of payment and have many different types of shipping mode.


They accept bank transfer, credit card and paypal. I can't emphasise how important this is, for noobies like me who can only do bank transfer because I don't have a credit card *sniffs* Super angry at times when I see nice stuffs that I wish to purchase, and the site only allows Paypal... So yeah, I guess almost anyone will be able to make a purchase on 65Daigou's site!

payment

They also have different types of shipping mode to suit our budget and how urgently we need the item. Sea shipping is the cheapest of course, and there is express air shipping for those who need their stuffs quick. I usually use Sea shipping to save costs!

3. They check and repack the items for us before shipping to Singapore.


Imagine buying directly from the taobao seller, and you only realised that they sent you a faulty item or a wrong item when it reaches you in Singapore, it will be really troublesome to do an exchange back to China.. Luckily 65Daigou will help us check our items when they receive them at the China warehouse to prevent such problems.. A seller actually sent me a wrong color for my bag, and luckily the 65Daigou team checked my item for me and made an exchange before it was shipped to Singapore

They consolidate all our orders together into a single shipment, repack individual items to reduce size/weight and to protect our items better, saving us some international shipping cost! I noticed that they even bubble wrapped the more fragile items, thumbs up for them!

4. We can see what other people bought via 65Daigou recently.


You'll get a rough idea of what are the trending stuffs... And this saves me so much time! Most people will usually look for the best price of the item before making a purchase (there are many sellers selling the same thing at different prices) and tadah, less research to do for us. #lazygirl92

5. Easy to use


65Daigou's site is pretty easy to use, and if you have no idea how to use it, they have prepared step-by-step video demonstrations, so don't worry about being a lost sheep at their site. They reply enquiries very quickly at ther helpdesk too, if you were to have any problems when ordering.

Yay time to show off more of my taobao loots from 65daigou!

[[Just a mini tip here, give yourself a budget before starting to shop and keep to the budget.. I usually give myself a budget of $5-10 per item.]]

This 7 pieces of apparels costed me $35 only...

dsc02214_2

I really liked this Chanel perfume box bag, so I exceeded my personal budget and got it for $20+..

K-fashion styles

I love Korean fashion, they always look so chic and stylish!!! :)

I especially love those "casual" looks with tees and shorts, they look so trendy without looking sloppy at all, unlike me.... Maybe because they're tall and skinny?

Casual - plain cropped top with ripped denim shorts

Stripes - I also noticed that stripes seem to be pretty popular in Korean fashion. Striped tees, dresses and even pants!

Black - not saying that koreans only wear black, but black-themed outfits seem to be a pretty common thing!

Accessories - Most of them would either have caps, hair accesories or shades on!

Shoes - Booties or strappy platform sandals!

The Tiramisu Hero

Exams are finally over and we went dating, and cafehopped for our lunch! :)

Decided to go to The Tiramisu Hero, because I've seen it on instagram too many times!! Furthermore, we were supposed to collect our passports at ICA that day and TTH happen to be near Lavendar MRT station too. It was a 10 minutes walk from the MRT station.

The cafe is pretty cute on the whole, and they have an ambassador, called Sir Antonio haha!  The whole cafe was not very big but it feels spacious enough, which was a good thing. (I hate feeling squashed up at small cafes.) The sevice was really good, the staffs were all very attentive; they cleared our plates promptly once we are done with our food, and our cups (iced water) were never empty. Food-wise was okayish only, nothing bad, but nothing special.

Spot us in the reflection?

Our food!

DSC02095 DSC02068 dsc02089_2

CHUNKY MUSHROOM SOUP $6.0


served with toasted garlic bread

We topped up some money for the set meal (soup + dessert), so I'm not sure if this is the size of the soup on the menu. The soup was really creamy, but in a non-salty way. Bf says this is alright but I think I prefer it to be more salty. The cripsy garlic bread goes well with the soup though! :)

DSC02092

JAYNE MAC & CHEESE   $8.9


macaroni in a creamy cheddar and mozzarella cheese dip

I had this. It doesn't taste like what I'm expecting it to taste like, but pretty decent I would say. The cheesiness is just right, I didn't feel sick of it and finished the whole bowl myself!

DSC02084

CHEFCHEF CURRY BAKED RICE (with cheese)  $14.5


white jasmine rice baked in fragrant chicken curry

Bf's food! He said that this was normal, nothing much. I tried it and I felt the same way too! Oh, and I think the curry tasted like indian curry? (Not very sure, I think only haha)

DSC02093

Desserts!

DSC02105

MOMMAHERO   $7.5


signature packaging, serves 1 pax

Tiramisu in a jar! We picked the oreo one and it was pretty good. To be honest, it doesn't taste like tiramisu at all, but it was nice in its own way. Many different textures in a mouthful - cookie bits at the top, creamy center and sponge fingers at the bottom.

DSC02099

The mudpie that came in the set with the soup (I think). This is basically chocolate ice cream on chocolate cookies or something of that sort. Baby ate most of this!

DSC02101

Must take a photo with Sir Antonio when visiting haha! Okay, actually we took a lot of photos with this head, but I'm just posting one here haha~

dsc02118_2

This is super cute please! Hahaha..

DSC02120

Here's our total bill, a little on the high side I would say. We only ordered a snackers, a main, a mommahero and topped up for a meal, and it is $39.50 in total!

Nevertheless, I had fun cafehopping with baby, and the good service at The Tiramisu Hero made our visit pleasant! :)
