The Confession of A Taobao Shopaholic!

Peepo peepo peepo! I AM BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *screaming on the top of my lungs*

Hahaha, omg, it had been more than a month this time! I had completely, totally, absolutely abandoned my darling blog............... for school stuff. So don't scold me LOL!

I'll update you guys about what kept me so busy lately in another post. Now I'm too excited about something I need to share with you guys first! :DDDDDDDD

If you stay in China you will definitely know about the ONLINE SALES on Taobao on 11/11/2013! :DDDD Okay, actually every year also got. It's call the DOUBLE ELEVEN Day (direct translate 双十一), which is also Single's Day. I think maybe they want to console those single people out there or something so a lot of shopping malls and most of all, the online shopping heaven, TAOBAO, organised a crazy 50% sale on that day! ALMOST EVERYTHING 50% including branded items! :DDDDDDD

I didn't plan on buying anything last time, but I kept seeing the advertisements popping out everywhere, at the side of the shopping mall, on the tv screen in subway station, or at the tv machine thingy in the taxi. EVERYWHERE! LOL! So...... I kinda got hypnotized and felt like I had to check it out. Hahahaha!

Besides, I had been wanting to get a pair of boots for winter, because the one last time already worn out, and I wanted to buy a good quality one as well so it will last longer. Btw, there's a very very very weird phenomenon in China. SHOES ARE FREAKING EXPENSIVE. You can't find any shoes under RMB 200, I mean good branded shoes, not those sold at the roadside that were mad cheap la. Coz in Malaysia we got Padini, Vincci all those good quality and reasonable price shoes right? Here, the same quality you have to pay double or triple of the price in Malaysia! Crazy!

So you can imagine, if I want to buy boots, leather ones, it would be at least RMB 1000 here! Equivalent to RM 500 per pair. Hah! No money for that! =.= So I didn't get to buy any for a long long time even if I saw some designs that I love.

Therefore, I got a brilliant idea, to check out the boots on Taobao on Double Eleven Day and see if got any branded shoes on sales!!!!!!! And I'm proven to be a genius. :DDDDD CRAZY MAD LOTS OF BRANDED SHOES ON SALES! Tata, Steve Madden, Nine West blablabla all on sales! Buahahahaa! You should imagine my expression that time, eyes popping out love shapes okay?! Hahahahhahaa!

Anyway, the war started at 12am, so I chose all the things that I wanted to buy and waited patiently for the time to come. And the long boots that I wanted was targeted by 800 people! ONLY GOT 40 pairs wth! (ps: we can see how many ppl save it in their shopping cart) So I was mad nervous and kept complaining to Tuya and spamming on wechat, "PLEASE DON'T FIGHT WITH ME FOR THE BOOTS!!!!" Hahahahahahaha! Crazy, but seriously if I didn't buy it I think I'll cry! Really love it and the price is mad crazy cheap compared to the original price okay?!

In the end, I won the fight. Thanks to my divine internet speed and my luck. Mehehehehehee. I'm going to show you guys what I had bought! :DDDDDDD

Start with a totally irrelevant picture of my face just in case any of you miss it. ;P

I GOT A NEW LUGGAGE FROM ITO! :DDDD The famous Japanese brand! :)
My old luggage is super broken already. I bought it from some cheap market last time for RMB 150 only, but apparently 一分钱一分货, its quality is too bad the wheels sucks big time! 

I always have to use up a lot of energy to pull it because its wheels can only go in one direction and usually when I fly back to Malaysia I took a lot of things with me. Violin, handbag, laptop and the luggage. Hands totally full! And still need to use up energy to pull that luggage omgggg. I always feel really drained after the flight.

So I think this will be a good investment. To get a really good quality luggage with reasonable price! :)

Original price RMB 930, now only RMB 340!

Chose the pastel pink! :) Love it because it's sweet and not too pink "pink", you get what I mean?!

And together with the luggage, the taobao shop owner sent me some extra gifts!!!! :DDDD

Luggage stickers!!!
Though I don't think I'm going to put any of them on my luggage. Maybe only one? I dunno, it just feels too young for me! *old woman's mind* HAHAHAHAHAA!

What I love most of the gifts!!! The U shape pillow omg!!! Totally need it for the flight! And the eye mask for sleeping in the cabin! also got sponge thingy to stuff your ears just in case the pressure in the cabin got unbearable. Name tag for your luggage and 2 dried compact towels!

Just in case you dunno, I love useful things than pretty but useless things. :D
That's why I don't like flowers as present, because pretty only, but useless. Hahahaa. Though I'll always feel happy when I get it la LOL.

Preferably PRETTY AND USEFUL. :D Perfect combo!

Inside! There were several parts to put lots of things!!!! Totally happy with it! One of my best buys on Taobao ever! :DDDDDD

The lock part also very high-tech. :DDDDD Super neat and easy to use!

Alright next buy!
Tata brown leather boots!!!

Original price RMB 1098, now RMB 400!

Super pretty right? but................. the size is smaller than usual. T______T

I was so happy when I received it, but when I tried it on, it was too small for my feet so I couldn't walk in it. :(

Anyway, I just shared it on my wechat to see if there's anyone who are interested to buy it from me and already 4 people replied! I had a feeling that it would be sold by tomorrow. Hahahahaa! Yayyyy get my money back! :DDDDD

I tried to change the size on Taobao, but it was totally sold out during the Double Eleven Day so no choice. :'( If I can change the size I'll definitely keep it!

Winter Tights!
Okay this buy totally failed. :'(
I just wanted to get some leggings for winter you know. And I saw that the comment on this is really good. A lot of people bought it.

Original price RMB 58, now RMB 26 per pair.

So I was like, okay cool, I need good quality leggings coz the bad quality one will easily worn out or tear.

When it arrived, I was like wowwwwwwwww look at the legs of the model!!!! (though it's a bit too scary kinda long, must have photoshopped =.=) And when I opened it I touched the material and was like ohhhhhhh good quality!!!!!!!

Then I tried it on and...... STUCK.


Then I realised. It's the COMPRESSION TIGHTS.

I didn't see the words when I bought it.

It's that kinda tights when girls bought it to make their legs look slimmer, but it's so super duper tight you'll feel your legs suffocate in it, like literally, your legs will die because lack of oxygen flow in it. LOL WTH AM I TALKING ABOUT, but that was what I felt.

I didn't want to give up because I thought like, shit, I paid for it, I'll at least try to wear it, maybe I can stand it. So I spent like 20 minutes slowly wearing it lil bit by bit up. OMG IT IS GOD DAMN PAINFUL because too tight! Every time I pulled it up an inch, it'll smack my legs when I let go. *pak! elastic smack* T______T 

In the end when I finished pulling it up, my legs look exactly like the model on the box (okay myb not that long, but that slim la). And I was like wuuuuuuu, but the funny thing is all the fats were pushed up to my butt so my butt is ridiculously big hahahahhahahaa it was a crazily funny sight. Though I like the legs' part. :D

In the end I took it off coz it was too suffocating. LOL. I think I watched on TV last time some celebrity actually wear this kinda thing when they sleep to make sure they have the perfect leg shape. I was like, omg they.... are..... amazing, how can anyone sleep in things like this?!??!?!

Anyway, any readers out there interested to buy? I have another one for summer/spring, thinner version, not open yet. If you're interested let me know ar. You can wear in your sleep to keep your leg shape if you can endure it muahahahhaha!

 Finally this is the boots that I was talking about earlier! The one that got 800 ppl targeting, and the one that if I didn't get I would cry that one! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Le Saunda Long boots! :DDDD

Original price RMB 2298, now RMB 699! 

I'll just show you guys the picture on Taobao page so you guys can see it more clearly! :)))) I bought the black one! I like how simple but elegant it is! :D I don't like anything too complicated looking. No bling blings no nothing. :)))

Somemore the shop owner gave me this key + card leather accessories bag! Amazing quality!!!

Before I tried it on I'm really really worried that the size wouldn't suit me! Luckily it fitted like a glove!!!!! So in love! Immediately asked Tuya to take a picture of me in it! Hahaha!!! Another of my best buys on Taobao!!! Really happy about it because original price is RMB 2298 one okay?!?!?!?!!!

Okay lastly I got myself some new hair accessories! :) Since I didn't really do anything to my hair, too lazy, I think having some cute hair accessories thing can motivate me. :D

wig hair rubber band! :DDDDD
Got braided version and straight hair version!!!

Each for RMB 2 I think! :)

The effects are as follow. :) Cute right? :DDDDD If people doesn't look closely, they would think that it is my own hair hahahaha! :D

Another one is this Bun sponge thingy! :DDDD I have very thin hair so when I pull my hair into a bun, the size of the bun is pathetically small. So with the help of this sponge thingy......

The bun could be THIS BIG! Hahahaha!
Well, I think it's a lil too big for my taste, coz I bought the L size sponge. I should probably get the M or S. LOL. Anyway I'm really happy to try it out! :D Only RMB 1 each OMG! :D

I bought another pair of black wedges but it hadn't arrive yet. So maybe I'll update about it soon! :) 

Till then, I'll end this post with another pic of me wearing my fav boots! :) Night peeps! :)
