Fabulous G-Market Haul


So a week ago, my haul from G-market came. Surprisingly, it came in three days. THREE FLIPPIN DAYS!!! Amazing! That is, after the sellers sent the items to the G-market facility. Overall, I spent approximately 150 dollars (shipping included).


I got two bags, a pair of booties, two men's jackets, and a pair of high waisted jeans. I didn't take photo of the said jeans because they were suffocating me to say the least. A word of advice for those ordering online, make sure not to get S-M-L sizes for pants. I have a few pair of pants in L that are a bit loose but for some reason, these were TINY! I wear a size 28 (a bit loose) and still I could barely breathe after buttoning! Ridiculous! But aside from that, I'm pretty content with my order. Six items for 150 seems more than fair. And here are some photos of us modeling our new buys! 


Awwwww! The jackets look like they were made for Aaron! Overall, for the price, the items were an okay condition. However, the real steal is the men's jackets! We've tried ordering some jackets from eBay and the quality looked as though blind babies stitched it. The seams were not reinforced and the fabric looked like it was rejected satin from a Rocky Horror Picture Show costume. Not these! The material looked exactly like the stock photo (if not better) and they were fairly heavy. At 40$ each, these are the real steal! The bags and the boots were, as I expected, cheap but paying around 15-20 dollars per item, I can't really argue.

Until Next Time,
Mint

P.S. (edit) IF YOU GUYS JUST SIGN UP FOR G-MARKET REMEMBER TO GET A NEWCOMER COUPON! I signed up on the 29th, applied the coupon on the 3rd or something and IT DID NOT WORK SINCE IT WAS NOT IN THE SAME MONTH *shakes fist*

Hana 1" Hair Straightener


Around a month ago, Misikko.com contacted me to review their hair straightener. Now as my old one was dying (to say the least), I happily took the opportunity. First things first, I'll tell you that my old straightener was a ghetto 30 dollar Jilbere one I bought when I was 15 from Sally's. I'll use that in comparison when writing this review.

Along with the straightener, I got a bunch of other goodies (including some e.l.f. cosmetics! which I adore). I can't believe all these goodies they sent! Shipping and processing time took less than a week.




Verdict? I absolutely LOVE how smooth the straightener makes my hair feel. Although my previous straightener was also made of ceramic, it kind of really fried my hair. You really get what you pay for. This straightener is super smooth going down and makes my hair straight but soft. One thing I do have to add though is that I lent this straightener to my best friend Tiffany for a test run (since she has curly hair) and she says that it takes a bit longer to straighten her hair since its so smooth. However for me, its perfect! For service, quality, and timely delivery, I give this product an A-.

Until Next Time,
Mint
