Online shopping?!

Heyyya peeps!
I don't even know where to start when I first thought of updating my blog,  I literally had to look for the link at my facebook page, that's just how bad it is -.- I mean, Hellooo? its MY OWN FREAKING BLOG for goodness' sake =.=' and yes,  it has been awhileeeee (I've mentioned pretty much the same thing on my previous posts) since I've written anything, and I mean anything at all since foreverrr!
Okay, those statements were too overly-dramatized hihi 

So anyways,
life has been good lately, Alhamdulillah (I thanked You for every possibilities that You had made possible and those endless guidance that is still keeping me on the right path, thank you Allah). 
These past few weeks had been a lot of things, emotions that is to me, unpredictable (I guess Billy Joe did try to warned me in his 'time of your life', I should have listened? oh well.) Oh no wait, did I say emotions? like seriously? Imma screwed that up now, my writing method need a major adjustment ASAP! 

I know for a fact that the things I've written before was a whole lots of ... well it ain't crap, but I should have regarded this blogging space more as a place to share thoughts/views on such a significant scale rather than keeping it as a diary (ain't a bad thing either) and of course putting my passion of expressing these views in a way that is more, straight forward and maybe filling it with a much more vibrant topics/discussions. 

Looking back at it, its overwhelming to see the transformation for me, being the person I was (judging from my style of writing) into becoming the person I've become and y'know, things like how my way of thinking had evolved && stuffs, finding its way into maturity :')

But heck, lets not do the whole life-changing-lovey-dovey-moment thing, done that a gazillion times. 
What I really wanted to blog about right now is, my current/all-time favorite pastimes, yes you guessed it right, MAKEUPS <3 and online shopping! && maybe, some other 'additional' things *ranging from playing/experimenting with it, to shopping all the essentials! (well, I'll be blogging mainly about online shopping but since makeups are my ultimate favorite thing, I listed it out first hee)

*Just a very quick background check; 
Not that it matters so much but yeah makeups has been my ultimate obsession since my childhood years and that hasn't changed till now.
Personally, its the one thing that I feel would live within me for years to come! yeayy!

*Note to my future husband <3 ; let me quote this;
"It is not my naked/makeup-free complexion that should be your uppermost concern. Well, probably it should, but only during the two-weeks-period before my annual menstruation process *y'know its the time of the month where parasitic zits started to invade these fragile, fragile complexion of mine and its also that period of time where my uncontrollable moodswings would be something your patience needs to cater* but honey, as an early preparation to combat whatever it is that is coming your our way, start saving now! cos I'm your ultimate supershopper! *winks* maybe soon, you shall know why hihi"
Right, so now I've literally got a whole life planned out for me, no? oh well =.='
 *I have no idea WTH am I talking about. y'know, ignore the whole statement stated above it does not   make any sense, at all. So, mind me.

So yeah, recently I was granted with some extra $$ from the two-most-important people in my life, PARENTS! (the door of sustenance are wider for those who are willing to work) and so, I had been involved in some online shopping!!
First thing first,
y'know there's always this part in a movie where when women/girls went for a shopping spree for no apparent reasons and how the payment bills went crazy, yeah.... well that didn't happened to me (thanked god, hihi)

What did happened though,
is that I purchased some of my favorite things; MAKEUPS! (I ain't gonna mention the billing parts, duhh?!&$%)
it was nothing much, really *aside from getting some awesome eyeshadow/blusher palette, makeup brushes && some other makeup tools <3 I've always wanted to own these palettes and tools but was told that I was too young to put on makeups, NOT ANYMOREEE!  to finally owning these stuffs feels like a dream come true!  *exaggerations alert!

I've been successfully (let me repeat that, SUCCESSFULLY!) pulling off a few looks that I learned from YouTube tutorials(the power of technology) and sometimes having my own 'Michelle Phan' moment (one of the most sought-after-makeup-guru on YouTube!) when nobody's around.
It was such an awesome awesome ways for me to spend sadly, what's left of my holidays before starting off to college :'( (I shall be doing another entry on colleges and stuffs, hopefully soon!)

But hey,
at least I'm ending my holidays doing the things that I love right? right? right?! *postive energy draws in* this is so pathetic, I'm not prepared this! *face palm. 

So yeah, for me, getting your favorite things doesn't need you to reasoned with anything but you surely do need to know your boundaries, *I know online shopping is an extremely risky deal in terms of frauds and pretty much anything, but I've taken some extra precautionary measures and Alhamdulillah so far everything is alright* and as a matter of fact, online shopping are quite wide these days. I wouldn't say it has becoming a trend or anything, but I do find a lot of people of all ages adults/youngsters preferring to shop online, instead of going to the mall. (who loves traffics right?)

But of course,

when there are pros then there will be cons, its the rule!

From what I know and pretty much experienced,
online shopping offers a wider choices/options in choosing your favorite things, both locally and internationally. Next is of course, getting the best price. I find a lot of websites offering a much lower price on the exact items you usually find at the mall. The best part is that it can be delivered right to your doorstep after payment has been made *in terms of payment, there are also a list of options in dealing with it (online banking, atm deposit, paypal etc.) so unassumingly, traffics can be avoided (unless you chose to do atm deposit, which requires to go to the bank). I guess these are some of the pros listed out for me.

As for the cons,
I would make finding a trusted seller/dealer and websites my main priorities, simply because its the single-most-crucial criteria to look for in order to avoid frauds. Second thing would be dealing with a very rude and fussy seller/dealer whom obviously does not put customer's service first! thirdly, you are prone to the addiction of shopping online (it is never a good thing and never will be, trust me) which may lead you to spend more $$ than you ever needed on things that are unnecessary *that's why its called addiction* Lastly, waiting for the shipment which by far, my least favorite thing ever to deal with. Sometimes, these 'responsible people' promised to deliver your items in this particular time, but it turns out, the waits kept on being delayed (nobody likes a long wait, right?) but so far, I think I've been dealing with the right people so delayed deliveries are no longer my biggest concerned.

Online sellers/dealers  are humans too and maybe sometimes, they made mistakes (everyone does) maybe they overlooked your order or whatsoever. But some of these honest people worked hard to earn their income, and I appreciate those who had been treating their customers well, thank you for being very polite,and most importantly, honest (technically, it wasn't the easiest thing to do especially when you have to deal with hundreds and hundreds of customers)
I would also like to thank the people who are responsible in delivering the stuffs, mainly to the company that I've dealt with before; (poslaju, skynet, kangaroo etc.) thank you for the awesome service!

Bottom line is,
there are a lot of things to put in consideration before starting any transactions online.

Be sure to put forward the things that you need to bare with and most importantly is to have patience, always set your mind in the most rational state possible.
Just for the record, I'm not recommending you guys to shop online or whatsoever,
its just that for a person like me and maybe those who can relate to this, its hard for me to shop for certain favorite things of mine here (referring to where I resides) it is highly impossible *well, almost.
For whatever reasons there might be ,
I am not to be blamed for keeping this morbid obsession  as a past-time-thing (I mean, look at me, I am a sophisticated young woman, I was born to strive in pride!)

"People are meant to do, what they were meant to do"

p/s: Don't ever judge me just because you don't like the things that I do. In my defense, I never really understand why 'boys' were soo into DOTA? Grow up already -.- such 'games' are just Lame (see what I just did, I judged 'boys'. oh well.)
