Shopee Haul!

I've been hearing about Shopee on Facebook but I didn't really pay attention because I thought it was just like another online store (like Lazada). 

On a side note, I like Lazada though because I was able to buy Unilever PureIt during last year's sale (and got to save P1500 from the mall price) and a spanking new Imarflex Air Fryer from their recently concluded Birthday Sale. I got the air fryer as a Mother's Day gift! 😍

Anyway, back to Shopee! I attribute my Shopee addiction to Tellie. It was from her Shopee haul post that I first got interested because I'm into both useful and useless things. LOL. I browsed and browsed and got caught deep into the Shopee web.

Haul #1: Gifts from M (so this isn't technically my haul)

M knows I'm into cute things so he got me these from random Shopeeng moments:
  • The DIY purple drawer is so cute! It's currently resting on my bedside table.
  • The self stirring mug is genius and so lazy. I can now eat my oats in a fun way. It also saves me money since I'm motivated to just bring sachets of coffee/hot chocolate/milk tea/wheatgrass/oats to work instead of buying from our office pantry.
  • The pill & vitamin organizer water bottle is supposed to be a genius idea, but water will seep into the pill box during washing. It's also not leak-proof. Plus points for the cute and innovative idea though.
  • The flashlight/taser is so handy! It goes well with my anti-rape whistle (below). I hope I won't ever have to use them, but they're nice to have. The taser I haven't tested whether it's effective. I have no willing volunteer/victim. πŸ˜‚
  • The ocean bag dry pack in pink is waterproof and definitely useful for our next beach trip!

Haul #2:

I learned from Tellie that most stores ending with .ph are based in China. That means the orders will take a while to be delivered. This order took 10 days to arrive.

I only wanted a metal mixing palette since I wasn't able to find one when I went to Divisoria. I found this heart-shaped metal mixing palette with spatula (P134). It's marked as stainless steel but when I did the magnet check, it sticked so it's not really stainless. It doesn't bother me though since I got it for cheap and I only intend to use it when mixing my lipsticks. I got 3 silicone wrap seal covers (P78 each). They're cheaper in other stores but I was trying to reach the P350 minimum purchase threshold to get P100 off my shipping, so I got them from the same store.

Tip: Shopee advertises free shipping for purchases of P500 and up, but it's not really free. The most they'd waive is P100 off the shipping fee, which is not bad. This order from came from China, but I only paid P20 shipping fee for it. Sometimes, they have promos where you can get the "free shipping" at P350 minimum purchase, so if it's not urgent, then wait it out.

Silicon food cover in action! It doesn't tightly seal the cup/bowls but it will do.

Haul #3:

More butingtings! This order took 3 weeks to arrive. I can't remember the exact prices of each item when I purchased them because I just made pasabay all these from my sister's order to make her reach the free shipping threshold. This shop literally Divisoria at your fingertips. I love it! However, upon writing this blog post, they seemed to have had a price hike for ALL items: hair donut (P41), silicone nipple cover (P45) so I can finally wear my bralette, squishy cat (P38), and waterproof apron (P38) for my mom.

Haul #4: king_market

AKA my favorite haul. The tita in me is ultimately thrilled with my purchases from this store! I exceeded P500 but my shipping fee was still P140 (ANG MAHAL!), but I can't complain since my order had 2 large items and 1 tiny item. Plus, I bought a pair of magnetic lashes once and paid P155 shipping fee for a tiny freaking item. Hence, I must not complain.

I've always wanted a shoe rack but I didn't want to buy from the mall because it's expensive. Enter Shopee the lifesaver! I got this DIY shoe rack with 9 levels (not 10 as indicated in the box) for only P399! I read reviews and checked out the photos of other buyers. Most were happy with their shoe racks but some were angry since their box came with missing parts so together with my order was a prayer that may my shoe rack be complete. It worked. It's DIY so my dad helped me fix it and we were done in about an hour or less. πŸ˜€ I chose pink polka dots and it's so cute!!! My shoes now finally have a home and I was able to finally throw away my old shoe boxes.

A week after I received my order, this shoe rack went on sale for P305. Che! Happy parin ako!

This anti-rape whistle (P88) is my new favorite keychain. It doesn't really match my favorite ALT New York Bag but it's useful so I'm bringing it with me everywhere. I commute to and from work, and my work sometimes ends late in the evening so this is a must for me. The alarm is 120 decibels loud so if anyone's following you just click it to attract attention. The only con here is the manual whistle; it's useless. Heh.

Couch coat reversible washable sofa cover (P308) is another useful find since our sofa is old and torn. Now we can accept visitors. HAHA πŸ˜‚ This one's bitin though so I'll need 1 or 2 more. I had to bring it to the laundry shop first since it smelled like it came from the factory when it arrived. Downy helps since now it looks and feels soft. πŸ’–

That's the end of my Shopee haul (so far). Whew! Now I'm not that addicted anymore. But Shopee has already replaced Divisoria in my heart. πŸ˜ƒ
