About Me

I am a college student on a budget in hopes to find good deals and gems from big stores and small shops! I am also a content creator and I like to make videos on lifestyle and fashion/beauty!

How I Can Help

I have a YouTube Channel (justjoanne) and TikTok (justjjoanne) where I post hauls and lifestyle/travel vlogs! For my hauls, I shop from different fashion stores and mostly Korean Beauty but like to try out different things! I hope my videos and reviews can help those who are interested in buying from these places make good decisions on which items to purchase :)

Interests

Vlogging, Photography, Korean Beauty and Music!

I've never really knew of Wconcept until recently when I purchased their 23.65 V2 Multicolored shoes which some people may know it as the "Jungkook Shoes". Many BTS fans have purchased this (including uh me) and I gotta say, they're the mOst comfortable shoes ive actually ever worn. Crazy.

Interesting thing about the shoe is that the bottom actually has the pattern of 23.65 which feels funny at first but you'll get used to it. Shipping was stated to be 5-10 days (got to me in 7) and I had to pay $12 for shipping + about $15 for duties/taxes.

Overall I think this shoe is a little overpriced for what it is but it is a comfy and cute shoe. Probably won't purchase again though.

Shopee began in Singapore and was expanded to many other countries such as Taiwan which is the site I bought from. (Each country has their own shopee page, iF the country has it available).

I never bought from Shopee before this year but my experience has been pretty good so far! I've made about 6 purchases and most of them were clothes. This shop is quite similar to Amazon where you buy from individual sellers. You can message the shop owner and they can respond to you regarding your order or any other questions you have.

Another thing I like from Shopee is that you can choose where you want your item to be shipped to. There's many options like shipping to your home or to multiple convenience stores (7/11, familymart, etc) for pick up.

Overall really like this website and the variety of items you can buy!

I'm currently abroad and I wanted to buy things from Amazon so I decided to give the international shipping a go. The shipping actually wasnt bad, got to me at a reasonable time. (Purchased on Feb 3rd and most arrived on Feb 19th).

At first, I thought shopping would be really expensive but it wasn't. I can't remember why I had a shopping promo but it covered all the shipping costs. Without it though it would have costed me $30.40 which isn't bad either way (bought $128usd worth of product)

OH, there was an additional import fees deposit though of $11.05 for me.
Overall not bad purchase, AmazonGlobal is doin it's thing.

I discovered this online shop though instagram and I decided to check out their brand since they have quite a lot of trendy pieces!

I've read that they are a drop shipping company, not 100% on that but it seems true because people have found similar items on aliexpress (only certain ones though, they DO have many UNIQUE pieces ive never seen before)

WEBSITE: Quite cute/aesthetic and easy to navigate. Sizing is easy to check as they have a chart with cm and inch measurements available right on the same page. An interesting thing that I noted from Cider is that they have shipping dates for each of their sizes.

ITEMS:
- Single Belt Tank Top - Black / S
- Spray on Smiley Face Jeans - Beige / S
- Don't Look At Me Sweater Vest - Blue / S

SHIPPING: I'm international shipping so I paid $7.99 but if you are in the US shipping is free if you spend $59+

Tip for consumers:
Use their code CIDER to get 15% off on your first purchase

Personally I find that lululemon items are quite expensive and out of my budget so I don't own many pieces. I've had many friends tell me its worth it to spend the money on essential staple pieces like a sports bra or a legging but thats it. (Still havent bought but I completely agree)

However, for my recent visit to their shop, I saw their Fly Away Headband for only $15usd (its $12 in the states) and I decided to get it. This was honestly one of the only items I felt good spending money on because it doesn't cost that much (especially for a lululemon item!)

Plus, it looks good so I'd say if you want one or a few things from this brand; just get this one :)

I discovered this Taiwanese brand in the beginning of this year and I've gone to their shop twice now to buy shoes. The pictures I've attached are shoes that I tried on at their shop and eventually bought them online because I was going somewhere after and couldn't bring them with me.

D+AF has a Korean fashion vibe to it and they sell various kinds of shoes such as boots, heels, sandles, sneakers, mules, loafers, and more! I'm a sneaker kind of girl and have the basic white shoes that you can think of. I also don't wear heels or boots often but after seeing their selection and the price of all these shoes I just had to pick out some!

I'm really glad I purchased these because now I can try to switch up my daily fits with shoes :)

This Korean skincare brand use pure ingredients that is sourced from Korea's Jeju island! They were one of the first ones I tried out when I started to get into Kbeauty. I do have to say though that I don't use many of their products anymore but I still use them here and there.

I recently ran out of their Intensive hydrating eye roll-on (which is part of their popular green tea line) and I do plan to get another one! They have great prices (pretty much always got sales and promotions) so you can get some nice Korean skincare without breaking the bank.

Another thing I wanted to mention another thing I love about this brand is that if you bring your empty bottles to their store, you can get points but also participate in the Green Life Campaign and recycle correctly!

As it's now prom season, many people are looking to buy dresses for the big night! My friend and I recently got prom dresses from JJsHouse and we love them!

This black one fit my friend really well and it looked so good on her. I really loved the blue one that I shared in the picture (the back is my favorite :)) Her's was about $150usd while mine was only $89! We did get it tailored/custom sizing so that does cost extra.

The quality of these are just so amazing for it's price and I'm so glad I didn't spend more than what I did because paying hundreds of dollars for a dress for this one night is erm not exactly worth it so definitely check out their website if you're interested in buying ANY kind of dress!

Ps, they ship internationally too!

I've been using this company's hard drives for as long as I can remember! I always go back to buy their products mainly because I like the design and it's very durable. It's design is nice and sleek and I've never had any problems with them. The cords are nicely wrapped so you won't have to worry about them breaking off (like some phone chargers...)

I'm a filmmaker and I also take a lot of photos so of course need a lot of storage. These BIG capacity and LIGHTWEIGHT hard drives a MUST for me.

There have been times when I'm editing (not on a desk) and I accidentally unplug the hard drive. Thankfully every time I plug it back in the items remain and don't disappear.

I usually buy their 2TB but I do have one of their 5TB ones and I seriously love them. Highly recommend!

I recently discovered Gymshark through a fellow youtuber friend of mine and decided to check out their website! First off, it's a good website. Going through their catalog and browsing products was nice and easy. They actually have many clothing options for women but they also sell lots of different pieces for men as well!

I ended up buying from both sections and I surprisingly liked the mens pieces more than I thought. I shopped with a friend and decided to tried on his items too, so check out the video if you'd like to see the try-on's and more of what I thought of this purchase!

(ps. I think it's important that I mention this was the fastest international shipping package I've ever recieved. Still shook.)

ALSO NOTE: The sports bra I purchased was too small and I tried to ship it back but I think the process is a bit complicated for me and since there is NO free returns, I've just decided to give it to a friend.

This South-Korean clothing brand is a very popular one and they are probably more known for their make-up 3CE. I've bought their makeup before but this time I wanted to try out their clothing. I ordered this tank, cropped cardigan, and long sleeve dress. I love these items and I was so impressed with their shipping!

I actually bought these HEATHYOGA Bootcut yoga pants from Amazon but I wanted to write a review for their website. First of all, THESE HAVE POCKETS! They're super comfortable and I love to wear them for daily wear. Leggings usually feel really tight especially at the waist (i know that's the point) but sometimes I just want the legging feel but not be sucked in each time I wear them. These are now my go to since they aren't extremely tight and JUST THE MOST COMFY LEGGINGS EVER. Plus, the bootcut is very flattering and trendy nowadays~

I've ordered many different sized photos from Shutterfly multiple times over the past years and they always have promotions! There was this one time they were giving out free their reusable bag and all you had to pay was shipping. I was already paying for my photos shipping so I decided why not! I use this bag all the time (as you can see it's erm dirt in the photo) and it's extremely durable. I'm literally carrying the heaviest groceries around my neck and the bag is isn't broken which is crazy!

Highly recommend ordering photos or other personalized items for your family and friend or even yourself like me :)

I make YouTube videos and in order to not get copyrighted for the music I use, I have to get royalty and copyright free songs. As long as you have a google account that has a YouTube channel linked you're good to go! You can also use these songs on your instagram, you'd just have to link it to your account as well.

They have a FREE option as well as a premium membership which includes benefits such as being able to access only premium music, download songs on mobile, and more like getting priority creator support.

The only reason why I took a star off this review is because their website is honestly a bit hard to use, its quite slow and things take a while to load which is a little bit inconvenient but I'm still using it and wont complain for free content!

Ps, they also have a section for artists/musicians but I can't comment on that because I'm not one~~

The reason why I am giving this review a two-star is because of this bundle they were selling it was a really good deal. However, without the discount, their items are quite pricy and in the end I was unable to successfully purchase and I'm quite frustrated with that. I tried buying this skincare set from one of my favorite YouTubers but wishtrend's website is not great and there were many problems during the purchasing process.

One annoying thing I wanted to note here is that I was literally logged into my account but went to click on my past orders, I was brought to another page where I needed to log in again, so I "did". What I mean by that is they said something like "there is no account associated with this email" WHAT!? I tried resetting my password and waited for the email to come into my inbox. I got NOTHING which made NO SENSE because I got an email saying my order succeeded the night before.

I know this is a little confusing review but long story short, I've decided I won't be trying to purchase from this site again and I hope I'll get my 100% refund back.

Ps I'm now seeing so many people talk about the bad customer service wishtrend has so yeah no thanks bye

I made my first purchase from Krave beauty's website this past year and I'm still using their sunscreen (which I love and use everyday!) I really love this brand as the Founder Liah Yoo (who is also a beauty YouTuber), made these products with a lot of passion.

My friend actually bought with me, she got the cleanser (in the photos) and they all seem very nice! I just got the sunscreen to try first and it's my everyday sunscreen now. I personally think this is the best sunscreen out there (I've tried many Asian brands) and this one feels the best. Not only does it apply well, it also has no white cast and it smells really nice too!

They also have a matcha cleanser and the Great Barrier Reef serum (popular as well) so I Highly recommend buying from their shop and testing out the products, especially their beet sunscreen :)

This is literally my all time favorite jewelry brand because they have the CUTEST earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets and more all at a very affordable price! Their materials are also quite good for the deal you're getting and that's why I've bought so many!

Bonny & Read is a Taiwanese jewelry store that also ships internationally. I've been buying mine here in Taiwan so I'm not sure how long their international shipping takes but it shouldn't be too long.

I purchased these items (in the photo) over 4 months ago and I wear them every day! Seriously recommend taking a look at their site and check out my Tiktok here: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMeSNxKhk/

JWPei is a sustainable Taiwanese/LA brand that uses vegan leather and recyclable products.

According to their website, they use high-quality canvas, polyurethane, and fabrics made from certified recycled plastic bottles. Which is great!

I saw one of my friends have their wallet so I decided to take a look at their website. They have a variety of bag styles to choose from and a bunch of colors as well!

I've used zagg's invisibility screen protectors for years now and I wouldn't switch to any other! One thing that keeps me from changing is the warranty they offer. I've broken my screen protector so many times that this warranty is such a nice bonus.

The website is easy to use and you can get a new screen protector with a few clicks on their website. They also used to require you to send in your screen protector when you get a new one but they stopped doing that this past year I believe due to covid or just trying to cut down shipping extra stuff.

As you can see in the photos, their warranty replacement packages are so nice too! It makes it super easy to replace. They used to have this other guide to place on your phone when adding a new screen protector, but they stopped including it which is fine because that's an extra piece of plastic that'll go into landfill. # environmentalism

Anyway, currently using their InvisibleShield Glass+ Privacy (black screen) and it's quite nice!

If you've been on any social media platform recently, you've probably seen this brand called CASETiFY. (They've been promoting their products through influencers like crazy for the past month) Anyways, this brand sells trendy phone cases and now even a one where you can design-your-own case! I bought one of these customized cases myself recently and it turned out very cute :)

The reason why I give this review a 4-star is because I actually had some trouble with the purchasing process. I'm not sure why but I couldn't purchase this product and ~multiple~ of my cards didn't go through. I had to contact customer service for help and this happened in one weeks span which tbh irritated me a bit. The designing site was okay, it was kind of hard to drag photos in and organize the photos but I wouldn't say it's too big of a deal. I got my case a whole month after I purchased and I understand it takes time to print the design and shipping during covid is slow but this took a dang long while.

» MY RATINGS:
Website design and ease of use: 8/10
Shipping: (internationally) 7/10
Pricing: 7/10

In the end, I don't regret purchasing from their website but I do wish the process was faster and smoother. Their cases are amazing though so do buy them if you see them in store!
Check out my IG post *******@justjjoanne for pictures and other cases I've bought from them :) this is my fourth one from them~
