Big AliExpress Haul!

If you don't know what AliExpress is, it's about the Asian equivalent of eBay but with cheaper goods and easier to find and navigate around.

I used to love eBay but if I'm being honest, I don't frequent that site much anymore unless I'm looking for specific items because I found it almost near impossible to find what I'm looking for and generally the prices are a bit more higher than AliExpress.

Anyways, over the past two months (this haul is long overdue), I went a little shopping spree on AliExpress and I'd show you what I got!

PS: I am frugal.
PPS: This post is not sponsored by AliExpress! All contents were purchased by me.

In no particular order:


An "Adidas" gym bag for $10 CAD! Since starting my new job that requires me to pack my laptop and lunch everyday, my backpack ran out of room for my gym gear so I purchased a small gym bag.



 


A no-name 8mm fisheye lens for my Olympus for about $80 CAD. It does the trick for those looking to have a fun lens without breaking the bank. If you're interested, all my New Zealand vlogs were shot with this lens and if you head over to my Flickr, you can see HD photo samples of this lens.



A $3 tank top. The detailing was nice. It's very lightweight and best suited for the gym.


A $1 blush. It's very pigmented and pink. If you know, you know I'm not very big on make up so I can't justify forking over more than $10 on make up. Yup, let's hear it... #cheapass





A pack of "Victoria's Secret" seamless underwear for $7. I was in need of seamless underwear because I hate having panties line show up when I wear my workout gears and leggings. At my local store, a pair of seamless underwear was already $6-10 so when I found these "Victoria's Secrets", I figured I'd try them out.

It's so comfy and yes, super seamless :P


Stay tune for a What's in my Bags vlog featuring this bag! I got this for $29! It's officially my everyday bag.


$4 for a pack of coloured eyeliners. I love putting colour on my eyes but I don't believe in paying for $4 for one pencil - as you know, that adds up when you want the rainbow. These eyeliners goes on smoothly and lasts for the day!


$5 Hello Kitty shirt :)


$3 phone case. The sequins move around when you shake it :P


$1 liquid eyeliner. And oh my god, it was easily my most favourite eyeliner I've ever used! I'm definitely stocking up on these. They're even better than ELF (and cheaper!).



Ignore the trash back in the background - I was cleaning out my closet. I got these two dresses for $7 each! I wore the blue one for an interview and the floral one for my headshots.




Lastly, this is just a wristband for my camera - about $6. I hate the neck straps on my camera and never use it so I decided to switch it up and carry my camera via a wrist strap instead.

I absolutely love shopping on AliExpress over eBay. And, like eBay, they have a great consumers protection program as well :)

Let me know if you shop on AliExpress or was hesitant using this site!

  1. I'm also shopping on AliExpress! But unlike you, I haven't ordered anything other than cute stationery, shoes and bags for the moment haha! My latest purchase was 2 bags a few days ago :) The thing with AliExpress is that you need to be willing to wait (with free shipping) but it's worth it imo.

    I really love your dresses >o< especially the flowery one, you look beautiful in them ;o;

    1. They have the cutest bags as well! My everyday black purse was off AliExpress that I got months ago and it only costed me about $7-8 since it was on sale as well. I agree, the shipping can take long but jackpot if you score an item with quick shipping! :P

      And thank you! You should definitely check out some their clothes!
