Haha ok so the post yesterday is getting too long 🙃 so I'm just going to split it up. 👍
I'm going to move on to the house stuff now!!!
But before anything I just want to put some references down here:
1. Heavy shipping guide
@braintango:031116 I've mentioned it here and this is also the third party forwarder that I use for air shipping!
2. Shipping rates
They go by cubic units so it's hard to estimate. But if you are already cheap on the furniture, usually the shipping won't hurt you.
I will be shipping these via sea shipping la cos I'm not in a rush! 👍 #taobao
Ok now to move on to the stuff I'm getting!
So the first thing I'm getting is this mirror with a small platform attached for my access balcony walk way. Hehe.
I am damn vain haha and I like to be able to check my hair before I leave the house so I've always wanted a mirror near the door way!
I think this is meant to be a toilet vanity but it looks quite nice la! Some more the ledge can use to put car keys!
Also getting a round mirror for the rooms! Hehe.
This is a purely aesthetic decision cos square mirrors are so much cheaper than round ones 🙃
But then. Aiya! Nevermind la! Hahaha. For Taobao pricing I don't think this is super cheap ~$40 not inclusive of shipping.
But we've been eyecandying round mirrors for quite long liao! So…post wedding it's like TAKING THE PLUNGE
I'm also thinking of getting these open concept mini wardrobe things for the guest rooms!
Haha we didn't have the wardrobes built in for the guest rooms cos dk what purpose the guest room will be for in future and we didn't want something so permanent! #dayrehomes
So I'm thinking of buying these for our guests instead! Usually if you only stay over for 1-2 nights…don't need a lot of storage la right!
This is the medium sized one (there are 3 sizes) and I think it should be enough la! 👍
This is about $40? 👍
Also carted out 2 shower curtain rails that don't require any drilling and hopefully they actually stay!
I have a U shaped one and a bar one from this shop!
The ones from IKEA are ok…only! 🙃 So I decided to just give this a try!
And to match….botanical shower curtains! Yay!!! 👍
I've been eyeing this for ever, before the house was even renovated haha.
Its slightly pricey at about $11 but LOL yolooooooo.
I should rename this post to YOLO house shopping on Taobao 🙃
And then for my room…I'm thinking of getting this one! Haha.
I feel like for the entire house, we made very adult choices in terms of colours and furniture, so having a little bit of cuteness hidden in the toilet is quite nice also la!
Also the colours are damn harmless and pastel 👍
I had initially wanted this one because…whales my friend. Whales 🐋
But idk what is with the weird words? Haha. So sad tho. Such a shame. I think one day I might just cave and buy this and then close one eye to the words.
Cos it's super cute lah!!!!!!!
Hehe purchasing guest toothbrushes so when our nasty friends stay over I can give them toothbrushes!!! 👍👍
Eh damn cheap at 10 for 12 yuan ok 🤣 Use already ask them to put into the packaging and keep at my house so I don't have to keep giving new ones #besthostaward
While I'm at it. Also grabbing some bath towels la. 🙃
I feel like I'm walking through the home and living section of Taobao and grabbing what I need haha.
Buy 2 get 2 free I think! 👍👍
I prefer plain designs but plain designs still ok!
Hehe also getting bedroom slippers for our house cos…it's quite dusty so sometimes I'd encourage visitors to wear bedroom slippers la. Especially if they don't want to take off their socks!
This one has rubber soles so it's really good! 10 pairs for 38 yuan! 20 pairs free 2 pairs.
So worth it 🙃 But I'm getting all men sized cos my feet are fat.
The next thing on my list is actually a shoe cabinet/bench for our access balcony area.
We don't live at the new place all the time yet so there's no urgent need to buy anything (hence the continued persistent shopping on Taobao).
But shoe cabinets are so expensive omg. Especially the decent looking wooden ones.
I've been looking and looking and looking and never found any 🙃
I had initially wanted something super simple like this LOL
But guys…simple doesn't always translate into cheap on Taobao ok! Hahaha.
The Nordic themed furniture are actually way more pricey than the usual normal designed ones.
This one is about 1500 yuan which is $300sgd
Idk if it is expensive in SG terms but then it's expensive for me 🤣
But after browsing through like 5000 listings (no joke ah. Daniel always says the speed of me looking through the listings can go join world record alr) I found this!
Haha it's more oriental than Scandi cos of the wood grain and the colour of the wood but I like how it's damn simple (no frills yo) and made of solid wood.
BEST PART IS THAT IT IS ONLY $160sgd before shipping 🍍🍍🍍
The insides are white which is something I'm not in love with…but ok la! I'll compromise haha.
It also looks very roomy 🙃 so I hope we don't fill it up too soon! ⛺
Taking a break from the Taobao-ing cos scrolling through like 5000 listings is no joke 😂
Sometimes too much of a good thing can be a bad thing also 😂 I remember having to Taobao for the wedding last year and felt damn repulsed shopping cos so many things to buy and I had to keep searching and searching 🙃🙃🙃🙃
Hehe sorry workaholic so updating a little about the work situation 🙃
I've never been happier to go back to work la! During the wedding prep I literally had little to no time to finish what I wanted to do.
So now that everything has more or less been settled, I can go back to the drawing board and playing with lace and designs!
P.S: I can already foresee all the dudes that followed me during the EP to unfollow once the tits appear 🙃
Collected some clothing hang tags today because…..is it we need to tag our clothes???
Is it cos we are moving to a physical location????
No la don't speculate ok. We not so successful until can open flagship store yet 😂 even though I wish it were real!
I don't like to upsell myself so if I'm not opening a real physical shop with my name big big on the signboard, I won't insinuate that I am la!
A bit paiseh when people turn up and be like….
Eh??? Like this only??? So not your shop la!!!!
Ya! Not our shop, but we're happy to have been invited to be part of a store with an established brand. So honoured la! 😢😢 #truefeelings
If we had not been graciously invited, I would have just continued to sell online until maybe I'm 62 and bralettes are like a vintage commodity 🙃
Our Christmas sets also came so it's just been a mess of making sure that everything is perfect and ready for the festive season!
And yes, that's a green and red bralette you see right there. If you want to celebrate Christmas go all out!!!! Hahaha.
That's what I thought when we chose the lace for the design. Eh I quite like it leh. I put on all of them and did a happy dance around the mirror. 🙃
I shared a sneak peek of one of our Xmas sets on IG stories yesterday and I'm damn in love with this new design and lace colour pairing 😢😢😢
It's like falling in love all over again! I immediately video called my manufacturer to tell him how happy I am hahaha. He was like….siao eh can don't call me so late or night wts 😒😒🙃🙃🙃
But yes so happy wts. Happy enough to post this despite the fatty belly!
But in all seriousness, the post wedding bloat is real 😂😂
I've been eating like some depraved person and it's making me bloat like mad 😂
It's not that I intentionally dieted for the wedding (definitely do not support that) but I was sick before the wedding and too stressed so I kind of lost the appetite to eat.
But now that everything is back to normal, so has my appetite. 👍👍👍
My body looks different but I love it all the same
I think it's important to remember that no matter how our body changes throughout the years, whether it is through sickness, pregnancy or just old age,
We are obliged to love it all the same.
We have good bodies. Bodies that provide for us and allows us to go through our daily gains.
And yes, we might look different every day, a little rounder, a little slimmer, a little tanner, a little fairer
But we must remember to love ourselves all the same ✨❤️🍑
