SkyCart App Is Here!

SkyCart App: Buy On the GO!


I’m sure most of you have heard of SkyCart, your personal buying service for Taobao! They have recently launch their SkyCart App, available for both IOS and Android. Now you can buy the world just through your mobile! I think this is dangerous for our pockets, because this app makes Taobao shopping so easy!

This is the SkyCart App main interface when you enter the app! They now have Korean Beauty Products services which I went crazy shopping at! As a beauty savvy person, it’s frustrating not being able to land your hands on certain beauty products seen on blogs or youtube videos as they are not available in Singapore, or the fact that the shipping fees from oversea sites is pretty hefty. Now that SkyCart is bringing in all these products, I can foresee myself buying a lot from them, plus their prices are very reasonable! If I’m not wrong, they are the first in Singapore to provide curated beauty products from Korean! Other than the common brands like Etude House, Skin Food etc, expect to find brands like IOPE, Banila & Co, 3CE and more! (I think this service is available only on the SkyCart App at the moment!

Also, if you notice the bottom section with the ‘buy for you’ tags, those are the best selling items on Taobao that are hand-picked by the SkyCart team! What’s best? You don’t have to pay the Taobao shipping fee for these curated items!

skycart app haul

Here’s my loots from using the SkyCart App! I shop mainly from their Korean Beauty Products selection! Going crazy over the selection which is huge! Happy to find Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask that I saw all over Youtube! And also picked up other interesting masks that have pretty good reviews online. Oh, did I mentioned that there’s Free Delivery for orders that are over $75? Definitely very easy to qualify with so much to buy!

Happy Shopping On The Go with SkyCart App!



Budget Fashion Haul 

I’m am sure those who know me or follow me on Instagram (@joyceforensia) knows that I spend quite a bit of money on shoes and makeup.
However, I’m not one to spend on clothes and bags. Fashion trends changes way too quickly to justify spending big bucks on clothes and bags that are in trend. I once bought a bag close to $300 but I ended up using it less than 5 times. After that, I decided not to spend so much on bags as I tend to ‘ill-treat’ my bags anyways. Hahaha.
Back to the topic, I went shopping at Vivo recently and managed to purchased 4 items under $50.

I love buying basics at Forever 21, low prices and decent quality. Got a basic black tank, a simple V neck tee shirt in mint and a bandage skirt in dark green. And I only spent $26 dollars on these 3 items.

Basics are great as they never go out of trend and they are comfortable! To me, fashion should never be following the trend blindly. Find a style you like and is comfortable in. I love my basics paired with a statment fashion piece. It can be my bold Melissa heels or a patterned or bright colored outer wear.

I also got this pair of chic sandals with cute owl motifs from Tangs Vivo and it is only retailing at $19.90. I’m always more pro sandals than slippers. I always think that it is ok to be casual heading to town but slippers are kind of sloppy so defintely sandals for me anytime!

Fashion is a style and you define the style you want to portray. We dont have to spend loads of money just to be fashionable. Remember, comfort and confidence never goes out of fashion!



Fashion Loots from Okdgg!

Hi all!
Been awhile since I did a fashion related post!! I was approached by Okdgg.com some time back and got the chance to review some fashion loots I chosen from one of their sites, Miss Candy Kr!
IMG_3567-0.JPGOkdgg.com is a one stop Korean shopping site! You can find not only fashion pieces but also beauty products and many more!!! With many brands under them, you don’t have to look elsewhere!
IMG_3568.JPGMy items came after slightly more then two weeks after my order was placed. This is considered reasonable since shipping is free as long as you hit $100 at Miss Candy. I liked how they pack the items individually and that the shoes come packed without boxed. Saved so much space and weight if you happened to be paying for shipping. 😉
IMG_3569.JPGI was pleasantly surprised as the quality of the clothing are really good and all except one are made in Korea. As of all online shopping experience, there bound to be one piece that is a disappointment. One of the dress I got, is not what I expected mainly on the material. But luckily, it’s only 1 out of 6!
IMG_3572.JPGIMG_3570.JPGIMG_3571-0.JPGThe thing about online shopping is that the size might not fit, especially when it’s stated free size. This is often luck when you place the order to see if it will eventually fit. This denim fits but it’s a little tight at the upper arms. It’s a waste to just out it aside as I really like the material. Hence, I decided to wear it as an off shoulder jacket or around the waist to spice up my otherwise normal outfit.
IMG_3573.JPG This chiffon long sleeve scarf blouse have got to be my favorite clothing piece from my loots! It’s light weighted which is perfect for Singapore’s humid weather and I like the attached scarf design.
IMG_3574.JPG Paired it with a simple black skirt and it gives the preppy kind of look!
IMG_3575.JPG Best item from my loots have to be this pair of simple brown leather boots! And it’s only about 29 USD. It is really light which makes it very easy to walk in and very comfortable! I also love how versatile it is as it is suitable for many looks!

I enjoyed shopping on OKdgg.com and had a fuss free shopping experience on the site! Check it out yourself and shop away!!



Collective Haul: Sephora Holiday Sets

It’s the festive season soon and many brands are launching sets that are value for money! And the best place to shop has got to be Sephora!

Urban decay is one of my favorite brands and they have an exciting line up for their holiday launches. I got three items from Urban Decay! I have the first two Vice palettes, so it’s a just for me to get the Vice 3. I’ve also picked up their eye pencil set and Full Frontal Lip Stash to try out the liners and lipsticks. Sets like this are great as you get to try out the product in variants of shades. Plus, they are mini sizes so you’re bound to finish them and they are travel friendly too!!

Vice 3, SGD88.

24/7 Glide On Double Ended Eye Pencil Set, Sgd60.

Full Frontal Lip Stash, SGD60.

Tarte is another great brand with good blushers. I love the two I had and I decided that I can’t miss our their blush palette with 5 new shades. As some of you would know, I’m in a lip crayons frenzy and Tarte have a set with mini lip crayons! Must buy!

Tarte Pin Up Girl Blush Palette, SGD59.

Tarte Kiss & Belle LipSurgence Deluxe set, SGD49.

I’ve always wanted to try out Marc Jacobs liners as I’ve heard only good things about them. But I was hesitating as it is pretty hefty at $36 for one liner. Glad I waited as they came out with a 7 piece petite liner set!!!

Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner, SGD69.

I’ve spent pretty much a bomb this month with all the holiday launches but luckily for Sephora new Black Card launch that I’ve got 10% off though I didn’t hit 250 points. But apparently I hit it after this haul. Hahahaha. A little savings now for more future shopping!!!

Swatches will be up on the blog slowly! Busy at work these days! Let me know if you want me to review any of the items in this post, I’ll try to post it up first!



Tick Tack Shoes by Mitju


Mitju have recently released a new range of Japanese inspired shoes! This range is called the Tick Tack Shoes and is fully customizable!


With 3 different shoe fabric bases(mainly patent, suede and leather),20 over color choices and 60 over accessories that you can “tack” to your shoes, the choice is endless! I had a hard time choosing with such a wide variety of choices.
You can say I’m literally spoilt for choices especially when I’m a shoe fanatic. I’ve over 30 pairs of shoes at home and hardly any space for them! With the new range of Tick Tack shoes, I can have different designs with just one pair of shoes! Imagine the space I will save!


Took a break from choosing and took a shot with William and Maybeline!


You will be given an order form to tick off your selections and the staff will gather the shoes and accessories for you with the form! Pretty neat huh!


Here’s happy me with my final choice!


The base shoe come with two tacks for you to clip on the accessories. It’s really easy!


I’ve picked out classic pieces for the accessories. A simple plastic ribbon in white for that casual sweet look and a black fabric ribbon with blings for a more classy and formal look.


Here’s how they looked like on the base shoe! I’ve chosen patent red for the base as I personally love red shoes and thinks that every woman should own a pair of red shoes, be it flats or heels. (I’ve red wedges, boots, sandal and flats.:P)

And it’s good to know that the base shoes are only priced at $26.90 per pair and accessories are from $6.90-$14.90! Super affordable!

One thing to note is that they are only available at ION and Plaza Singapura outlets. However, they will be available online at http://www.mitjuonline.com/ sometime in late August, so watch out for it!

Now you know where to shop for shoes! Not to mention, Mitju usual ranges of shoes are very pretty and fashionable too!
