Shopping Wish-List for 11.11 Singles Day + Black Friday Sale

The largest online shopping days are upon us! These are the 11 11 and Black Friday sale events. Thanks to the Internet, everyone can join the biggest online shopping events no matter where you are. In the Philippines, you can expect 11.11 deals on shopping sites like Lazada and Zalora but I also know savvy shoppers who’re able to shop from sites like Alibaba, Taobao, eBay, and Amazon.

I don’t think I need to go far (in cyberspace) because I already have a wish-list for November 11 and most of them are from Lazada. Lazada also already features items from Alibaba and Taobao – hello China! It is during the 11.11 sales that I really allow myself to buy things online that I personally want because of the savings and discounts. It pays to be prepared with a list and here’s some of the items in mine.

Christmas Shopping Wish List for 11/11 Online Shopping Sale

It was only a few years ago that I was introduced to what 11.11 Sale is all about. In China, November 11 is known as single’s day and simultaneous to the celebration of being proud and single, shopping malls and ecommerce sites such as Alibaba would also hold their largest online shopping sale.

#1 Cute Unicorn Adult Onesie P1,222 – Life is short and we all need to let out our playful selves once in a while! I want to get this Unicorn Onesie to wear on Christmas or whenever I’m just chilling in our bedroom watching YouTube. It looks so soft (I wish it really is) and so Instagram worthy too!

#2 Vivo V5 Silicone Buckle Glitter Phone Case P186 – I am using Vivo V5 at the moment which is fairly new but the silicone casing has turned yellowish and I’d really love a new glittery phone case to enjoy! It’s also in rose pink which is the same color as my phone. The buckle will let the mobile phone stand on its own when you’re watching online videos and I also like inserting my finger in it when holding the phone up, it prevents slips and falls! My phone ring has also gone missing so I hope to get this one too.

#3 Clear Dustproof Makeup Brush Storage Case P1,001  – It was only this year that I learned how to use makeup brushes and I now have a few Real Techniques makeup brushes. I have a hard time keeping them dust and dirt-free even when I wash them on a weekly basis. This clear makeup brush case will solve the problem! I like the idea of putting pearls to make the brushes stand up.

#4 Hanging bag organizer P439 – I only have a few hand bags and I want to keep them dust-free. It’s also important to retain the shape of hand bags so they remain attractive and stylish even after a long time. This hanging bag organizer will keep my bags off the floor and somewhere I can easily see them from.

#5 Classy hotel-style bathrobe P1,232 – Something to wear on weekends or when getting dressed for a big event? Bathrobes or wardrobes can be used in several ways but I dream of just being in it for an entire day doing nothing.

November 11 is the largest online shopping day sale

Don’t forget that the biggest online shopping event is on Saturday, November 11. I’m sure you have wish lists of your own or if you’re looking for gift ideas then I hope the items on my wish list helped you! So it helps to be prepared. So do check out websites like ShopBack for not only information and deals on the 11 11 sale but also on Black Friday deals!

Mommy Lace tip: Make use of the like, love, or add to wish list features on your favorite online shopping sites. This will help you save time from looking for your items again. They should automatically reflect the reduced prices on November 11.

 

Happy online shopping everyone!

Online Shopping Tips: Lazada 11.11 Online Revolution Sale

Lazada, the most popular online shopping site in the Philippines is having their biggest sale of the year. The Lazada Online Revolution Sale is happening this November 11 and December 12 (11.11 and 12.12).

If you don’t know yet, this is a highly anticipated event for online shoppers and is famous for offering P11 peso deals on top of huge discounts on gadgets, home & living, kids, and even grocery products. This is the fifth online revolution of Lazada since its launch in 2012. With only a few days to go, here are some tips to get the most value for your online shopping budget.

Lazada Online Revolution Shopping Tips

Lazada recently held a roadshow where I was able to see a preview of the sale

1. Browse early – the deals extend to over 17 product categories including fashion, health & beauty, home & living, and electronics. It is helpful to start browsing now and window shop ahead of the actual sale. This gives you time to enjoy looking at products without a sense of panic that it’ll run out immediately – and they will come November 11!

P11 peso deals will include products like the Virtual Reality Box, LED light bulb rotating lamp and a Genius gaming mouse among many others. If this is your first time, note that there are FLASH SALES and will be available to buy for a limited-time i.e. 60 minutes.

Flash sale items include 32″ Slim LED TV for just P5,499, Fujidenzo 20L microwave oven for P1,999, Star Mobile smart phone for P999, HP desk jet printer for P888, and L’oreal lip and cheek pallete for P399.

2. Put items on your cart or use the heart button to mark items you like – don’t forget to put items that you like on your cart or use the heart button to mark them. This will allow you to access your wishlist from your Lazada account and save you time in looking for them.

I did this last year and in my experience, the prices automatically update to their discounted 11.11 sale price.

Here’s a screenshot of all the items I’ve marked so far, baka magustuhan niyo din! :)

3. Read reviews now – especially during flash sales, it won’t help if you are still not 100% sure of buying a certain brand of TV or gadget. You will run out of time! Better read reviews now before the sale. Aside from reviews and ratings found on Lazada itself, I also look for YouTube reviews to see how the product works.

Don’t forget to give back and do your share of reviewing, post your review on Lazada after shopping too!

4. Shop wisely and choose useful items that you need – I personally try to stick to the home & living category during the online revolution sale. This helps me stick to my budget and only buy products that is beneficial for my family. Last year, I was very happy with all the items I purchased for below P2,000.


Here are the items I purchased last year

5. Use the Lazada app – I have the Lazada app on my mobile phone and tablet so that I can browse products anywhere, especially when I am not doing anything or just waiting for someone or something. This will help you follow tip #1 and tip #2 easily during your spare time.

Get More Discounts and Lazada Vouchers

Follow the Lazada Philippines Facebook page where fans can get free shopping vouchers, brand giveaways, and receive official updates to make your shopping more sulit. Do check with the credit card or ATM you are using if they have partnered with Lazada for additional discounts. I know Mastercard is offering additional 12% off on November 11!

ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser Review

The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser has been on my Lazada wishlist for the longest time. Many of my Facebook friends use it especially because it allows them to take flawless and picture perfect selfies everytime. It is also in the affordable range at P7,695 but “branded” being made by Asus.

I received my dream Asus Zenfone 2 Laser in gold this week, when you see this color grab it right away since it’s always sold out. Check the stocks in Lazada, my friends also say the same. I thought it might be helpful to unbox and show you how I customized this Android mobile phone.

Out of the box, you get the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser unit, a fast charger, and standard earphones.

Before anything else and because for me P7,695 is a lot of money – I also already purchased a generic P150 jelly case to avoid scratches and to provide protection in case of a fall. Asus Zenfone 2 Laser hard cases are also available but I already like the gold color of its own back case.

Now it’s time to turn it on. You will need a Google account so you can download the apps you like from the Google Play Store. If you don’t have an account yet, just click sign up, provide your name, the Gmail address you like, and password. Done.

Facebook and Messenger are two apps I use most. So installing them is the first step I took. Mommy Lace tip: Be sure to setup your phone in an Internet or Wifi zone. This will allow you to download apps and the Asus Update conveniently.

Next, I found a lot of pre-installed apps that could get in the way especially for multi-tasking moms like me. Go to Settings>Apps then select the apps you want to uninstall. Like this 50+ free games that I really won’t need.

Keyboard

You can also customize or change the default keyboard of your Asus Zenfone 2 Laser. I like the free emoji keyboard since it includes my favorite emojis and most of all, I can turn off and hide auto prediction and suggested words.

Font size

I also set the font size to Large instead of normal, this way it’s faster to read SMS, type, and find apps.

Theme

Asus provides cute themes for their phones, to view and change your theme, search for the “themes” app and apply the theme that you like. I am using the “Lovely Pink” theme.

Hooray! After these simple steps, users can officially call their phone their own.

It was only after these process that I explored the famous Asus “selfie” front & back camera. The “beauty” feature is turned on by default with “skin softening” at level 5. You can easily turn this off and set the levels to 0.

Here is a test shot with my son Ashton and his stuffed toy. This was taken with the 8MP back camera in the evening without flash. You can see full specs of the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser here.

Kids Mode

Even if we don’t want to, our phones easily land on our children’s hands. I don’t know if other phones have this feature but I setup the kids mode in my Asus Zenfone 2 Laser easily, all you have to do is assign a PIN code and select only the apps that you want your kids to access. This will prevent them from making or taking calls or going to your personal apps. Here is a screenshot of my Kids Mode for Ashton:

They will need to know the password before the can exit this mode ;)

Overall I like how easy it was to customize this phone, it took me less than an hour to make it even more productive and friendly for mothers like me. The size of this phone fits a lady’s hand like a glove, not too big to fit in our purse, pockets, etc. especially when on the go. Yet, it’s very powerful in a sense that you can do anything with it like send texts, check emails, go to Facebook, load Google Maps, etc. without any hiccups.

The phone’s welcome note says “in search of incredible” and it is fitting for any “incredible moms” this Christmas, go tell your husbands or buy it for yourself :D

REMINDER: Take note of the upcoming Lazada Online Revolution Sale on November 11 where Asus brand is participating. I heard they will throw in extra freebies like an Asus branded selfie stick when you buy from Lazada.
