the polkedotted green package ^^

that's what i found in my room today...

it's my bag!! (the one i ordered from yesstyle but got canceled.) i just ordered it the past friday night... or so... so the shipping was pretty fast...

and the packaging is so "happy making"... the bag is very well packaged with bubblewrap too... (love bubblewrap!!)

this is the bag ^^

i love the odd shape... it's diamond shaped and it only has one shoulder handle.

i like that it has 2 zipper compartments... and also a smaller one on the front, which closes with a magnetic button.

the extra strap looks nice... but i don't like how heavy the clasps are... and also... it's not a adjustable strap.

that's it... i just simply love this bag ^^

ebay seller: zeejun


i heart ebay…

i'm in a bag shopping mood lately… bought 2 bags on ebay the past week… 1 is the leather bag i first ordered at yesstyle, but got canceled… the second one is a small punky yet cute cylinder type of bag… pictures will follow when i receive them…

even though i bought 2 bags already… my search for bags continues… my watch list is getting longer and longer…

i love ebay!!

a few tips…

  • take time to look for an item, you might find the same object for a better price...
  • always read the description and take a clear look on the pictures (the pictures are not always pictures of the real object). avoid objects with bad pictures.
  • how much is the shipping or is it free shipping?
  • check out the seller!! recent feedback, feedback score, how many items the seller has sold…

    • be a good buyer, pay asap after buying. gives you a good score and positive feedback.

      • be nice, leave feedback after receiving your product. contact the seller first, when you have problems (not receiving items, broken items etc.)!

      that's it… shop safe and happy…

      any more useful ebay tips?


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 12

      ...a picture of a piece of jewelry that everyone complements me on.

      probably my stfu word necklace, people always wonder what it says, and when they find out, they always have to laugh about it :)


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 11

      ...a picture of a piece of jewelry that a grandparent gave me.

      i don't have any... not in my possession... i think my mom is keeping it save for me... but as far as i can remember, my grandma gave me a thin golden bracelet and a pair of dangly golden apple earrings.

      what i do have from my grandma, are these glibi tapes... in cantonese... love them... and i treasure it even more than any jewelry i have...

      just water...

      i needed something that would motivate me to drink more water... and i've finally found it ^^

      a cute and "comfy" water bottle... <3

      i've been drinking more water, since i have this bottle... maybe i'm just too lazy to get a glass of water, with the bottle by my side, the problem seem to be solved.

      yes i have 2 ^^ i bought the white one first... and i am loving it... these instructions will tell you why i love these bottles...

      so this bottle is called justwater tritan by rosti mepal...

      for my dutch readers... this bottle is now on sale for € 5,99 at blokker... the original price is € 8,99 ^^ (that's why i got the purple one, so i can switch ^^)

      for international readers, you can try this shop... but i can't say if it's a good shop or not, since i have never ordered anything from them...

      do you drink enough water? if not, what motivates you to drink? 

      (not sponsored or payed for...)


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 10

      ...a picture of an outfit i wore on a special day.

      so this is not a special outfit, but i did wear it on a special day… me and my bf's 1 year anniversary… this picture was taken in paris at the stairs of the sacre coeur.

      i might look really bored/sad/annoyed… but in fact this is just how i look when i completely relax my face, plus being a bit tired, can't help it...

      i was wearing a pink tanktop and my distressed denim shorts with sheer tights. with it i wore my black all stars and my black legend bag.


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 9

      ...a picture of a cute dress/skirt.

      it's cute, because it's my most colorful skirt...


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 8

      ...a picture of my most expensive article of clothing.

      probably this winter jacket... it was around 200eur, as far as i can remember. i don't really buy expensive clothing anymore, i rather spend more on shoes, bags and accessories...

      (this picture was taken in 2005)


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 7

      i didn't had time to post, sooo...

      today's picture... a cute outfit!

      it's a at home outfit. and i will be posting the tutorials soon (youtube)! ^^


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 6

      …a picture of a pair of pants that aren’t jeans.

      besides my leggings, this is my only pair of pants that aren't jeans... don't really wear it out, just for sports... they are really comfortable, the fabric is uber soft...

      review mijnnaamketting/mynamenecklace part 2

      remember my review about the word necklace i got from mijnnaamketting.nl (which is the dutch version of mynamenecklace.com)...

      they sell word/name jewelry, in sterling silver and gold. they got different fonts and also different products. bracelets, rings...  and ofcourse necklaces...

      last time my necklace came in a small organza bag, this time, it came in a small cardboard box... the lid secures/closes with a magnet. i don't really use organza bags, but this box i would like to use to store the necklace.

      in my last review i mentioned how i find the plate pretty thin and that i didn't really like the chains. but... that i did like the look of the plate.

      can you see the difference of the plate? the left one is my new necklace, the right one is my older one. this version has the double thick plate!

      i ordered this necklace with a figaro chain, which i think look so much better than the box chain. the figaro chain is wider than the box chain, which looks so much better with the rings that connects to the plate.

      also... my original necklace was scratched on the back of the plate, this time it's not :) it looks just like how the front of the plate looks like.

      difference in price? i payed 29,95 eur for the old one… the new one, is sponsored, but is sold for 39.95 eur. in my opinion, the double thick plate version is totally worth the 10 eur more... i would definitely buy this necklace again, if i can come up with a new word or name...

      last but not least... i have a 8% off coupon code for you all... order from mijnnaamketting.nl or mynamenecklace.com and use this coupon: "JenL"

      for the dutchies, try "korting" for 10% off.

      if you want to know more about how i experienced their service, you can read my first review.

      (fyi: this necklace is sponsored by mijnnaamketting.nl, but i did pay for the first necklace from my first review. and again, my reviews are completely honest... i can promise you that. i only agreed to do this review, because i like their necklaces and their service.)


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 5

      ... a picture of my favourite pair of jeans.

      probably this one, i think this was my very first tight fitted pair of jeans, got it from vero moda. they fit nicely and flatter my shape.


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 4

      ... a picture of a shirt that i haven’t worn yet.

      i don't have shirts that i haven't worn yet (except for the tops, i have bought yesterday, which i have shown in my haul vid)... so i decided to show a top, that i have worn the least... i probably have only worn it once...

      it's this really pretty halter top (by diesel), with a zipper on the front... the 3 is made from lace and is slightly see through... really pretty... but since it's a very revealing top, i find it hard to find moments to wear it...


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 3

      ... a picture of a piece of clothing or jewelry that was a gift.

      i haven't really received any spectaculair pieces of clothing that was worth to show... so here a piece of jewelry that i got, the only piece of jewelry i have ever gotten as a gift, that i still own. it's a swarovski necklace...

      but i don't wear it anymore... i still think it is pretty, though i don't like the short chain... it's because it has lost it's meaning.


      30 day clothes and accessories challenge: day 2

      ... a picture of my favourite shirt.

      couldn't realy think of a favorite shirt, but when i opened my closet, the first thing i grabbed was this buttoned lace shirt from h&m... and i like it wrinkly...
