Online shopping

DISCLAIMER: I purchased all of these items with my own money. I am in no way affiliated with the brands/companies mentioned in this post.
Hi there! 
Personally, I've always had mixed feelings about online shopping. I'm very paranoid that my items may be lost during shipping or that they won't fit me well. But I can't deny that it is convenient and I always find unique and trendy items online.

I've been browsing through some local blog shops and just couldn't resist these items. I wasn't looking for anything specific but I do have a weakness for knit tops and floral prints. I ended up ordering three items from three different blog shops. The first 2 items arrived about 4 days after I confirmed my payment and I was so excited! The 3rd item, a dress, hasn't arrived yet. But so far, I'm very happy about my purchases!
Rose Knit Pullover from Noixcracker (27 SGD including shipping)
I just think this top is so lovely. It has a high-low hemline and I love the keyhole cut out at the back. The material is thin enough for me to wear this coming spring/summer season and it is very, very soft. It comes in one size, large, so it is a bit oversized which makes it more adorable. 
Noixcracker has become one of my fave blog shops not only for their trendy collection but also because of their swift service. I will definitely be shopping more from them in the future. Check them out, they ship worldwide!

Cream Knitted Sweater from Quinze (26 SGD including shipping)
 I was really drawn to the detailing of this sweater. Doesn't it look like expensive cashmere? But for half the price! I was so pleased with the material when I tried it on. Now you may be thinking, "Do you really need that in Singapore's hot weather?" Yes I do need it! Even if it's mostly hot and sunny outside, I'm always indoors where it is air-conditioned and cold. Now I can look cute while feeling perfectly warm and cozy, especially on rainy days!
The sweater actually looks thicker than it really is, so it isn't too thick or uncomfortable to wear. Quinze has a great collection of unique but very affordabe items and they also ship internationally!


I just wanna blog about my Saturday. I actually wore this sweater to work this morning. I work at a small gifts/crafts shop and I always get VERY cold during my shifts, so this kept me nice and warm. I also tied my hair into a fishtail braid.

 After work I was craving for my favourite caramel frappe so I headed to the nearby Starbucks. I only wanted to get a tall frappe but I noticed the cute mugs sold there and the even cuter barista. HAHA. I ended up spending more money than I needed to ($10++!) How can I say no to good coffee and a cute barista? Maybe I'll be going to that Starbucks more often. Hehehe.

How's your weekend so far?
