About Me

I am currently studying Computer Information Systems and I'm Chinese/Vietnamese just in case you're wondering. Also I'm a foodie =P you can buy my love with food haha. Jk not really.

How I Can Help

I consider myself to be a budget Barbie. I typically shop for clothing and cosmetics from Asia and America so I am very familiar with navigating through knock-off sites and finding the best commerce sites. Also I have an eye on spotting quality vs price so if you need a second opinion let me know.

Interests

Anything kawaii, gravity falls, steven universe, sushi and going to karaoke.

I placed an order with them on November 22 2015, and my items arrived on December 8 from Vancouver to Calgary Canada. I emailed them asking why my package is taking awhile and they were very quick to reply as I was worried that it won't reach in time for christmas. The grey dress was carefully packaged and it fits me and my friend perfectly. The dress was beyond my expectations. I will definitely order from them again.

Tip for consumers: The clothing are typically one-size and marketed towards petite figures so anybody above 5 foot 4 may be too small for them.

I placed my order for the Bubzbeauty Be make up palette on October 2nd 2016 and the palette arrived to on October 13. I was amazed by how quickly the shipping was from California to Alberta Canada!!! What's even more amazing is that I ordered the palette 2 days after they just released and posted the item for sale and the palette was sold out in 5 days. The crazy part is that 3 of my other friends in Alberta also got their palettes delivered the same day as me. The palette is so beautiful, very affordable and carefully packaged.

All in all I will definitely purchase from BH Cosmetics again in the future.

Tip for consumers: The site is in USD so be careful with currency conversions.

I ordered circle lenses on August 06, 2016 and the circle lenses came on August 26, 2016 from Malaysia (I believe) to Canada. I ordered during their free shipping promotion so that's possibly why it took longer but it was well worth the wait. They had several promotions running. Including a free trial pair of lenses for a limited time and free cases per order.

The lenses, packaging, and cases were all amazing quality and carefully wrapped. I will definitely order again for the third time.

Tip for consumers: (Note: honey color has amazing deals and freebies like free shipping throughout the year so I recommend subscribing to their emails. Usually twice a month.)

I ordered 2 items on June 1, 2015 and received the items on June 15, 2015 from Korea to Canada. I LOOVVE this shop because
a) They give free samples to every order (except when you purchase the samples)
b) Free shipping!!! or $2.50 USD for tracking number. Which is incredible cheap!!!!
c) The prices are really cheap compared to most retail sites like Amazon. I only paid $37 CAD compared to amazon that charges $46 for the same item.
I will forever purchase from this site from now on!!!

Note: overseas usually take longer but I think I got lucky. Also the prices are in USD.

I've ordered an aduro macbook case and a Blemish extractor. Both orders came in within 2 weeks. So far I haven't had any problems. I gave Groupon 5 stars because I've ordered boots but they ran out of stock. So groupon refunded me and also gave me $10 groupon bucks to be used on anything. I will continue to purchase from Groupon Goods.

I ordered one olive halter maxi dress and it did come: 1 month later. The quality wan't bad and it makes up for the slow shipping. My friend got her orders in 2 weeks, which was weird. Free shipping won't guarantee you quick arrival. Otherwise I would order again.

Please note: this shop ships from China. Shipping will take long and returns and refunds will be brutal even with Paypal. You're better off reselling on your own. But otherwise items will arrive.

The first time I made a purchase on Sheinside, I ordered 2 dresses. The second time, I ordered 2 cardigan jackets and 1 bracelet. Both orders came in within 2 weeks from China to Canada. Since I've gotten so many compliments on the clothing, I will continue to purchase from SheInside. The quality and shipping were fantastic!!!

Please note: Because the site is shipped from China and the deals are way below retail, asking for a returns and refunds are brutal. You're better off reselling the clothing than the hassle of returning.

I ordered a pair of circle lenses on January 13, 2015 and I did not received the lenses until February 13. At the same time I ordered during the free shipping promotion so that may be the reason it took much longer but tracking information is available to make sure the items are actually processing. But the items have arrived, it came with a free pair of lens case, I'm satisfied.

I ordered on yesstyle on January 25, 2015 and the package came on February 10. The items were labeled "ships within 24 hours." So I expected it would take 2 weeks to arrive. The items are either a hit and a miss. I ordered two bras, one was high quality and the other was mediocre. The phone case I ordered was fine. Thankfully yesstyle doesn't charge custom fees so I will purchase from here again.

I ordered this blush maxi dress on Jan.31 2015 and it arrived to Canada on Feb 12. The quality was magnificiant and I was satisfied that the arrived in less than 2 weeks. Many say that their items are expensive but you get what you pay for plus tracking number included. Thank you Lulu*s!!! I will order again.

Tip for consumers: Most of the sizes run small or junior sized. Best for petite or slender frame but other sizes are available. Also read the measurements carefully because they do note whether the hips, waist, or bust is fitted or loosely fitted.

Ordered two refurbished MDX headlights separately and received both item in less than 2 weeks. Plus the headlights looks extremely new and charges less than our local auto parts store. Keep up the great work!!

The negative reviews on here almost persuaded me not to order from them, but the weekend sale...
