As you probably know, I have a shopping disease... And the worst case of the disease is called: "online shopping" (^o^)
If you love shopping then you probably know the danger of online shopping. It makes us lose control because it is so easy to shop. With just a click of a button and without leaving your desk you can shop, shop, and keep on shopping til you drop ^o^
With the many online stores and shopping website on the internet sometimes it's confusing to choose which ones are the best places to shop. Being a mega-shopaholic myself, sometimes I got a bit overwhelmed by the many online shopping places out there. As usual, if I found a new online store that looks interesting I always do some research first.
Don't forget to always be cautious when you shop online because there are some online stores that have bad reputations or fake accounts / fake goods. So reading reviews is very useful to know whether the online store is trustful or recommended by others, and whether other people have issues with the store or not.
If I want to shop from local online store, I would search some reviews first to make sure that the store is eligible. And if I want to shop from online stores located or based outside my country, I would want to know whether the international shipment caused any problems or delays, or whether the packaging of the goods are good enough for overseas shipment to make sure that my goods would be delivered nicely.
Ever since I found out about Shop Venture (you might knew them as "Booroos.com" before they change their name), I find it very useful to search for new places to shop as well as to search for reviews.
Shop Venture is a place where you can find lots of reviews on various online stores out there. The reviews are written by the users themselves so it's based on true experience. That's what I like about it.
I also have written my own reviews there, based on my own experience of shopping from several online stores. You can also join Shop Venture and write reviews of your own, as well as searching for other reviews that you need. Users can also win prizes provided by Shop Venture if they write reviews on the website.
One store that I found from browsing Shop Venture website is Reebonz.com - I've heard about Reebonz before (which is famous for their discounted designer items), but I never shop there so I went to look for the reviews in Shop Venture website. I found that Reebonz has an Indonesian branch so after reading the reviews on Shop Venture I decided to try out shopping from Reebonz Indonesia website.
My shopping experience from Reebonz Indonesia is as good as the other reviews stated in Shop Venture - Reebonz review page. The shipment took less than 2 weeks and my goods were delivered very nicely in a an elegant box complete with gold ribbon.
I bought a Longchamp Le Pliage Tote Bag in Gunmetal which they wrapped nicely inside the box. The bag is an original and comes complete with Longchamp tag care. I was very satisfied with my overall shopping experience with Reebonz so I came back to Shop Venture website to write my own reviews :)
I've been wanting a Longchamp Le Pliage bag which is a classic bag that falls into the category of: "the versatile daily bag that every girl should have" (^o^)
As you probably already know, this all-terrain bag can be fold into a very small size so it's very useful for traveling (incase you needed more bags to carry your extra shopping items ;p). There were only two colors left on the Reebonz website so I chose this gunmetal shade which is actually a dark bluish gray color. The size that were available on Reebonz was the large one so I chose that.
I love this bag so much because it can be worn daily and even if it holds a ton it still feels lightweight on my shoulder. Now "christmas sale" and "end of year" sale is comin' up, so I would definitely find myself checking out the Shop Venture pages for new reviews and new stores to shop from ;)
If you haven't visited Shop Venture, go ahead and take a look around. You can read reviews from other users, such as their experience when they shopped at Strawberry Net, Asos, etc. What's even better is right now they are having a giveaway if you write reviews on their website:
You can win this gorgeous red bag just by signing up and writing short reviews! If you decided to write some reviews, don't forget to let them know I send you, please put hashtag #twothousandthings on your review :) - Meanwhile, thank you very much for reading this!
