Selfie Leslie is an online dress boutique shop and they sell a variety of pretty dresses! Watch my video to more details about this shop and my experience with purchasing from them!

So I discovered Cheese a couple months ago and they recently reached out to me to help promote them on my social media which I was happy to do because I really like what they got!

They're a debit card company that:
- takes 2 minutes to sign up, you can get the card on your phone first (start getting cash back immediately today!)
- SUPPORT. ASIAN. OWNED. Businesses!
- lastly, get 5% back on SO MANY restaurants in big cities (the Bay, LA, New York, Chicago, & Seattle!)

If you wanna learn more about them watch this part of my youtube video :) https://youtu.be/K9arV01gZSo?t=480

I discovered Veerah early this year from a friend and I got a pair of their FRIDA Heels w/Accessories. I love this brand so much and they literally check all of my boxes.

First off, it's a Woman & POC-owned business! Secondly, they are a cruelty free and sustainably made brand by using Vegan Leather for their products. Third thing is that you can wear these heels in different occasions just by adding one of their accessories!

I want to mention that these are my first designer heels. Not only am I a student in college, I'm also quite a low budget girl (I'm always trying to find amazing pieces at a good price.) However, even though this brand is on the pricer side, I'm so glad I got this as an investment piece because I know I can wear it to it's price tag.

Here's some things to note too:
- Free shipping & Returns in US, and they ship worldwide as well :)
- 10% off your first order if you sign up with your email
- they also got assistance if you need on their website!

If you're here thinking about buying them I'd say go for it!

I saw Dossier a lot on youtube so I decided to give it a try and girl I don't regret purchasing it at all. As a college student on a budget, I love finding high quality items at affordable prices like this. Dossier's got so many scents and one's that are dupes of those designer brand ones such as YSL, Gucci and Chanel.

I personally didn't buy them because I'm not a huge fan of them but I like fruity/citrus scent so I decided to pick one of those :)

They have a quiz you can take too if you're not sure what scent to choose and don't worry! If you don't end up liking it, you can always return it (for free) AND another thing I love about their brand is that they donate their returned perfumes to "Give Back Box," a nonprofit organization rather than throwing them away to waste!

I'll start of by explaining my title for this review. I've always been a small but when I saw their sizing guide, their 2 was a XXS so i decided to get that. However, I really regret purchasing that size because it was puni! The other thing was shipping. I understand with covid it would take a while but I didn't expect it to be this long. My package came from the UK to California but it took 11 days. Wish it came earlier…

Anyway, If I could I would give this review an extra. 5 star I would because the bottoms I purchased aren't bad. I like the skirt I got and the these black jean shorts even more. I was thinking about shipping these two tops back to return but that alone costs me almost $20 and I just felt like it wasn't worth it so I'm selling them~

Overall, I don't think brand is bad I just didn't have that good of an experience.

I've been looking at flight tickets recently because I'm planning some travels for the next few months. I heard about hopper somewhere on the internet (i forgot) but decided to give it a try. Turns out, this is now my favorite BOOKING FLIGHTS APP.

I don't wanna drag any other third party companies down but I've seen people get in bad situations with these companies and I just don't like using them. However, Hopper here is so easy to use, super friendly, and just gives you the best prices without feel like you're being scammed.

I also love the feature where you can "freeze" your flight for a certain price (usually really low from $25-40 but depends on your full flight price) and they will give you 7 days to pay it. "if the price increases, you'll pay the price you see now and if the price goes down, you'll pay the lower price!"

Overall, great app and love what this company does. ALSO you dont HAVE to purchase from Hopper but get this app to easily look at the flight prices per dates and compare!
Ps: i took this screenshot from their press kit and it just shows what their app looks like

I've seen this brand for a while now and I decided to try it out myself! I've been buying razors at Target but I didn't like how expensive they were and how often I found myself going to the store to buy it.

Website: When I got to billie's page, thought their website was super cute and easy to navigate. They have this short quiz thingy to ask you what color razor you're interested in and how often you shave (to see how often they'll send you a new one.

Shipping: didn't take too long, about a week. Oh to mention it was free too. I also think their pricing is quite reasonable and I really like their subscription! It's also really easy to change on their website which I did for the shaving cream because I found that I don't use that much and I probably can use for at least 5 months maybe even more. (ps, I have really sensitive ezcema skin and the cream which is aloe vera/shea butter/olive oil/sage feels real nice on the skin :))

Overall: love this brand and I think you should definitely give it a try! Btw, their customer service is real nice and quick to respond to your messages

Razor, travel case, shaving cream

I bought this item a while back when the "Glass Skin" was a trend and I still have the (empty) bottle! To put it simply, it's a really nice serum and I love to put it on in the mornings. Makes your skin super nice and glowy and it also feels really hydrating too.

I bought my bottle at Ulta so I can't really say much about shipping but I do know that they do ship to some select international countries as well.

Lastly, I would say this product is really good and that's probably why the price is up there but overall I would recommend to try it out!

Growing up I had very little and thin hair. But thanks to INH hair, I was able to get that long hair look. My hair has never been this long AND THICK (as my schoolmates know I had that long but VERYTHIN ponytail :') I got the Liane Ponytail from INH and now I'm able to get this look whenever I want with just a simple clip and knot around my own hair

INH has many pieces like ponytails, hair extensions, and other hot tools you can purchase too. Their team is also really helpful and if you DM them on instagram, someone will help you color match so you can buy the right color!

Check out my youtube vid for the application process + two more pieces from INH!

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.
