The internet has changed the world in so many ways. Everything has been conveniently easy nowadays because of the internet. Shopping now doesn't require you to go out of the house and bare the heavy traffic and the difficulty of getting a parking slot.
Meanwhile, along with the pros of having internet in our lives are some disadvantages as well. For online shopping, it is very important that we look for trusted sellers to make sure that they will deliver and won't run away with our hard earned money. I've heard a story of a friend's daughter who had to work with PNP to entrap an online seller who unfortunately is a scammer :(
In my experience, I've been able to purchase goods with a few online sellers and thankfully, I've been lucky so far. All of the ladies that I've coordinated with were professional, friendly and trustworthy. I got clear communication and received the items on time. Here are some of my favorites:
The first item I bought from an online shop is a cupcake maker. I was so enthusiastic to learn how to bake so I spent one night looking for a seller. I found Triance Clothing on sulit.com. I know it sounds weird that the shop's name has "clothing" in it and yet they sell cupcake / cakepop makers. Despite that, I deposited my payment the next day and got the cupcake maker the day after that :) It was that fast, and smooth!

Empressive 24 Shop
I have a Casio authentic watch before which I got from Empressive 24 Shop. Found them through Aimee and coordinated with the seller - the friendly and sweet Tata - via FB. Ever since then, we've become Facebook friends and follows each other in Instgram. Tata is one of the nicest sellers I've dealt with :)

Love Lace Studio
The lady behind this online shop is actually no stranger to me. She is my biological sister :) She's just new in the business and I'd like to take this opportunity to spread the word about her shop. She sells lovely necklaces and all things girly (read: bags, watches, dress and accessories). I got two items from her and both aren't paid yet (but of course, my story is an exception). Please like her FB Page and follow her on IG (@lovelacestudio).
I got the chance to choose from the Mothering Earthlings' collection of adorable and cute kids' clothes after winning a giveaway from TSN. I placed my order on their website and payment was made via PayPal. Unfortunately, one of the designs I chose was no longer available so Rone sent me an email and gladly advised that I can opt to change the design or get a refund. The ending was, I chose another design and was so happy with the items I received :)

M + K = a
If you are looking for quality and dainty hairpieces for little girls, M+K=a is the online shop to be. The beautiful lady who spearheads this is a good friend of mine, Em. She's a mommy blogger, and prior to her venturing into this business, we've developed a virtual friendship and made ourselves updated with each other's lives through our blogs :) I love dressing up my little girl and her #OOTDs won't be complete without an M+K=a hairpiece. She accepts payments via bank deposit or Paypal.

I've got two items from this shop already. Their statement necklaces are so unique, you wouldn't settle for just one :) I bought my first Piesa piece from one of their bazaars in Rockwell and the other one was chosen from their collection in Instagram. All communications were done via Viber and payment was made via bank deposit. There was a short delay in the delivery of the item but it was just because of an isolated/untoward incident that happened to Paula's (the seller) family. Shipping is free! I am a proud owner of these two statement necklaces and up to now, can't decide which of them is my most favorite because I absolutely adore them both :)

The Wagon Shop
The latest addition to my online shop finds is this cute little girl named "Give", a plush art doll handmade by the lovely Pepper - a fellow mommy blogger. Her shop sells artsy, cutesy and 100% handmade dainty products for dainty kids and mommies :) This little beauty arrived the other day (shipping is free!!) and is one of the items that was put on sale for Christmas. By the way, the SALE is still on going so visit her IG account immediately as the dolls are so lovely, they're being sold easily :)
