Sponsored Post: For the lazy shopper, try Zalora.

I am more of an online shopper than an actual shopper. Much as I would love to hit the malls as much as I can, I don't have the time for it. I work away from the orchard area and usually am too pooped out to even think about heading downtown. My Saturdays are filled my dance and pole classes which leaves Sundays. Sundays are my family time with the 'boys'. If we go for a show a Vivocity, I am able to shop quickly while the 'boys' hang out at Toys R Us.

I miss spending late morning window shopping where the malls are generally quieter and where I can pop by a cafe and sip some tea while I while away my time.

These days I'm an obsessive online shopper. I have a few favourite online sites I shop from and each one has a wish list which I keep for fun. When the urge hits, I click the checkout button and anxiously wait for my spoils to arrive in boxes. (I get thrills seeing boxes, yup I'm sick!) The long wait time can be quite a chore for an instant gratification girl like me. I hate having to wait at least 2 weeks for my items to arrive.

Zalora for me is the best of both worlds. I get to shop from my home and I get to get my items quickly.

My first shopping experience with Zalora has been great. I was having a bit of trouble with my promo code and I was totally happy with the over the phone customer service. I was able to get a new working code in less than 10 minutes and have my goodies coming my way. Guess how long it took for my goodies to reach me? Half a day! I was so surprised. I ordered my stuff in the morning and by late afternoon it was hand delivered to my address.

I also love the fact that they offer free delivery for over $40 spent. I think it is really easy to hit $40.

So what are the things I bought?

Well I'm crazy about boy shorts for my pole class. I have amassed quite a few of them and can't help buying more. These Migo hipsters are going for SGD $16.90. How cute are these? Super duper comfortable and perfect for my pole classes. I need to have more.

My face feels tight and dry lately so I wanted something to pamper my face. I have been curious of the brand Skin Inc so  I decided to try the Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask. I'll let you know how I like it after I have tried it.

In fact when I looked at the Women Beauty section, I see some things I would like to get my hands in the near future. For one, I'm glad to see SKII products, I am just recently getting acquainted with SKII and I have been loving their products so far.

I am not sure about how competitive the prices are as compared to the physical counters but I managed to get a 10% when I used to order my items with Mastercard on a Thursday. How cool is that? They do charge GST though.

I signed up for their newsletter and I have noticed that they do send out promo codes and discounts quite regularly.

Shopping tip: After purchasing my first item, I received a 20% discount code via email that was only valid for a day. This is how you can maximise your dollar. Put through your first order and keep your purchase close to $40 to enjoy the free shipping. Wait for your 20% promo code to come in and order more items! If you are a lover of SKII this would be the best time to stock up. There are terms and conditions so read those carefully.

Have you bought things from Zalora before? How was your experience like?
