I only ever buy my purses from here because I love the process. I love being able to negotiate prices with sellers and having so many vintage options to choose from. It's especially nice because of the customer protection they give out. I've found Guess as well as Burberry purses for less than $20!

I only ever wear jewelry thats sterling silver, especially when it comes to rings. Bling Jewelry has all the type of rings I could want while being sterling silver and being affordable. I bought my first ring from them almost 4 years ago and it's still in perfect condition, no rusting or tarnishing what so ever. Each ring even comes with a cute pouch to keep clean in.

I've personally used swap.com numerous times and I have never had any problems with them. They provide amazing second handed clothing and accessories for prices even cheaper than goodwill. Not to mention they ALWAYS have sales and promo codes so you're bound to get clothing for a few dollars each as well as for free shipping. I've found brands such as Juicy Couture, GAP, as well as VS. I especially love how they describe each listing on their website accurately based on the items condition. My only problem would be the fact that trying to search for a specific item as well filter items is kind of annoying, a lot of the time it will return no result.

I can only wear their shoes for a few hours because after that they really start to hurt my feet. If it wasn't so narrow, then I would wear them all the time.

My favorite thing to wear during the fall/winter season are boots. I've been looking for a nice quality pair of boots for a while, as I have really thin ankles and calves so normally high boots won't fit me well, and will look very wide on me. But I love this brand because their boots fit me perfectly and you can tell that they're going to last because the quality of the leather is top-tier. It is a bit high end but it's worth it because it will last you years.

Tip for consumers:
Size down. I'm a size 6.5 and a size 6 fit my perfectly

Reebok sells the most comfortable shoes to wear, specifically the Club C vintage shoes! The shoe feels very light weight because of the soft leather and padded cushion on the inside, it's also very stylish and it goes with any outfit. My feet never hurt whenever I wear them, which is amazing because I go to college and have to walk like A LOT, so I literally wear them every single day. The price might look like a lot but the good thing is that Reebok always has promo codes and sales going on so your bound to get them for at least $20 off. Shipping was also really fast as well.

Tip for consumers:
look for promo codes

I'm a big supporter of buying second hand items, especially when it comes to books, which is why I buy all my books from ThriftBooks. You're able to find most books you want for a really affordable price. I love being able to read something new while saving money!

Tip for consumers:
Make you you know what type of quality you are selecting of your book before purchasing.

I was recommended to try Versed from a friend, because she could not stop talking about how good their brand is. She said how much their skincare items changed her skin for the better, especially when it came to her acne and overall texture of her skin. I decided to try it out because I also suffer from acne and bad skin texture, and it was also affordable too, so why not. I ended up trying their moisturizing gel cream, and it was the best moisturizer I've ever tried. It felt very light, and my skin actually felt hydrated. I even noticed how it made my dry and peeling patches on my skin go away. It was also really nice learning that their products are vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and dye-free, and that they also contain no parabens, silicones, sulfates, formaldehyde, petroleum, and mineral oil. Only complaint is that I wish their products were bigger, but other than that I would 100% try more of their products.

I recently shopped from ISawItFirst for the first time, and I was not disappointed. They have a good variety of clothing, especially for the fall time, it's also very easy to filter out to find clothing thats specific to your liking. I also love how unique their clothing is. I ended up buying two sweaters that have really unique designs. I was a little scared when it came to sizing, because this is a UK shop, but both items fit perfectly! Since I live in the US shipping was around $8, but it's totally understandable especially how it arrived within a few days. Overall, I love this shop and would purchase from them again.

Tip for consumers:
Compare your US size to UK size

I've known about ShopmissA for a while now, as I have shopped online from them before, but I recently revisited my love for them when I saw that there was a store opened up in one of my city malls. I just love how much of a variety there are and how affordable it is. I will say that a lot of their products are hit or miss but there really isn't any sort of risk that you could take with them as all of their products are $1 or around that range and you have the opportunity to try out a wide variety of different types of products ranging from makeup to skincare to hair care and so much more. I also love how they have cruelty free makeup!

CottonOn has the absolute best jeans. I LOVE the way they fit me and how comfortable they are. My favorites would definitely have to be the straight leg and mom jeans in the regular blue color. Although, I recently tried ordering another straight leg pair in black, but this time it didn't feel or look the same. I ordered in the same size and style and I even checked to make sure that it was made in the same place but the black pair was still so much different. It felt tighter and was shorter at the ankle. I wish I took a picture of how it looked like before returning it.

I recently ordered a gap hoodie that was on sale, and there was absolutely no communication of when my order was supposed to ship out. Every time I wen't to go track order on their website it wouldn't even tell me the status of my order. I had to call them myself in order to get the information, just to find out that they are shipping it the first week of October, when I ordered it almost a month ago!

Anytime I search up any clothes online, 90% of the time yes style pops up with what I'm looking for. It's really tempting to buy because of the price and how cute they are, but there are some risks that come with shopping there. There aren't really any good pictures to represent the clothing item. The sizing is also really tricky because their clothing are Korean/Japanese made and there has been plenty of times where I bought something and the sizing was completely off. I only recommend shopping from there as a last resort when you can't find that specific item of clothing anywhere else. Keep in mind it does take a while to come in the mail since It is international.

KAJA beauty is one of those brands that should definitely have more hype. As far as I know it's one of those Korean brands that's only sold at Sephora. I've only personally tried their don't settle concealer, and I can honestly say that it quickly became my all time favorite concealer. It's creamy, doesn't dry weird, brightens up, and lasts the entire day. I can see such a difference after putting it on. I can only imagine how well their other products must work.

I first heard about Touch in SOL through reviews on YouTube, so with enough convincing I finally decided to try it out for myself. It's definitely one of the best primer I've ever tried and not to mention, the packaging is so sleek as well (It looks to me to be more of a frost material).

The fizz and bubble brand is so cute to look at and their fizzes work amazing. You can find it at Target for a good price. The coconut cream is my favorite!

I have problems with dandruff and a dry scalp, and this helped a lot with resolving these issues (not to mention i received some hair growth also).

My friend let me borrow this for a week, and it slowly turned my thin eyelashes into thick voluminous eyelashes. Now, i don't see a need to put mascara all the time.

This has definitely changed how my hair looks and lasts the entire day because the primer helps my other hair products look better. A primer is for sure needed in my hair routine.

When I used to braid my hair to look like beach waves my mother gave me this spray to use so my bradied hair would last throughout the day. This gave it more of a beach waves look and defiintily did what it was supposed to.
