LAZADA's Big Effortless Shopping Sale Across Southeast Asia + Tips on Online Shopping!

Hey, guys! Just wanna share with y'all good news-- Lazada's on an effortless shopping campaign today til this Sunday!!

Lazada, Southeast Asia’s leading online shopping and selling destination, kicks off its Effortless Shopping campaign  in the Philippines from 21-26 July highlighting the benefits of effortless online shopping to Filipino consumers.

“We are committed to providing an effortless online shopping experience to approximately 550 million consumers in the Southeast Asian region. While our customer satisfaction survey reveals that respondents are satisfied with their online shopping experience, there is an untapped opportunity to reach out to non-online shoppers by highlighting the benefits of online shopping and thus changing their perceptions,” said Inanc Balci, CEO of Lazada Philippines.

As an eCommerce leader in the Philippines, Lazada provides consumers with an effortless shopping experience with its user-friendly sites and mobile apps accessible at their fingertips anytime, any day. It offers a wide selection of international, local and exclusive products; and multiple secure payment options including cash-on-delivery.

Consumers can shop with peace of mind on Lazada as all items purchased are covered by Lazada's Buyer Protection Program. This provides a guarantee that products are genuine, new and not defective; and for customers to return the items within seven days for a full refund, otherwise. Consumers can also shop with assurance knowing that they can reach out to Lazada’s customer service seven days a week by phone and email. 

The Effortless Shopping Sale 

Consumers can experience the benefits of online shopping during The Effortless Shopping Sale on Lazada Philippines from July 21 to 26.

Here are some tips on online shopping! 

Lazada also curated online shopping tips on topics such as secure shopping, smart savings and category specific advice for parents, tech enthusiasts and fashionistas. These tips from Lazada’s own experts are designed to help consumers become savvier and more confident online shoppers.

Secure Shopping

  • For mobile shopping, choose shopping sites with an app. It’s easier to use and most importantly, more secure as it’s harder to tamper with.
  • Check news articles about the shopping site to ensure it’s not a temporary online shop that will disappear after pocketing your money.
  • Ensure the shopping site has a return policy such as Lazada’s Buyer Protection: online shops without return policies can mean scam or unauthentic products.
  • Do not give your password to anyone. Online shops’ email support or call support personnel should never require your password for identification. 
  • Only use your credit or debit card on sites with a padlock icon in the URL bar. This means the site uses secure communications to prevent any third-party eavesdropping.
  • Choose a reputable and secure payment method such as helloPay (note: only for SG & PH) to further secure your payment details. 
  • Check for security labels such as PCI-DSS certification. This means the shop has been audited and is certified safe to use.
  • If you don’t receive an acknowledgement email from the online shop shortly after a purchase, there might be an issue with your purchase or it might be a scam. Call the site’s hotline to verify.
  • If you strongly suspect you have been scammed and your credit card information has been stolen, contact your bank or credit card issuer to block the card and investigate.

Savvy Fashionistas

  • Pick the right size by using the size chart feature, taking your measurements and checking carefully for any international conversions (UK, US, EU, Japan). 
  • Ensure the site has an exchange policy like Lazada’s 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed policy that enables you to return clothes within 7 days, and re-order the outfit in a size that fits you perfectly.
  • Only shop for fashion on websites that provide a few angles so you can see exactly how the clothes fit on the model or mannequin.
  • Get your friends’ comments or ‘likes’ easily by sharing the item on Facebook or Instagram before buying.
  • Busy fashionistas can shop on-the-go with Lazada’s mobile apps.
  • Read product details to check on the fabrication so you’ll know how the clothes feel on you.

Parenting Shoppers 

  • Spend quality time with your family instead of getting caught in traffic to the shopping mall. Online shopping lets you shop at your convenience, any time of the day!
  • Diapers and milk powder are not only expensive, but heavy to carry. Look out for online promotions and take advantage of door-step delivery.
  • Follow the Lazada Super Moms Facebook page and subscribe to the newsletters to get the latest deals delivered straight to you.
  • Busy parents can save precious time by shopping on the Lazada mobile apps.
  • Don’t let getting overwhelmed in crowded malls and toy stores stop you from giving the best to your kids. Shop for educational toys online, conveniently.
  • If you’ve brought the wrong size of maternity clothes, take advantage of Lazada’s  100% Satisfaction Guaranteed policy. Return the wrong size within 14 days (30 for Vietnam), and re-order the outfit in the right size. 

Tech Addicts 
  • Online shopping allows you to compare prices for your favourite gadget. Do keep a look out for sellers on the same site that may offer a bigger discount or bundle deal.
  • Searching for phone accessories, power banks and covers is less overwhelming online as you can easily compare your options and colors, and sort them by price. 
  • Subscribe to Lazada’s newsletter or like our Facebook page to get news on exclusive and limited edition tech launches. 
  • When looking for a gadget in a specific model or colour, check out Lazada’s wide range online first. It’s better than visiting the retail store and discovering the gadget’s sold out.
  • Shopping for your favourite gadget online is easy. You can do it anytime of the day with fast and reliable delivery to your home or office.

Smart Savers 
  • Take advantage of free shipping if you spend a certain amount, or do a group order with friends so you can all enjoy free shipping.
  • Download the Lazada mobile application to enjoy special app-only discounts and access sales anywhere, anytime! Turn on push notifications on mobile to stay updated on the latest promotions. 
  • Watch out for time-sensitive flash deals, set your alarm so you don’t miss the promotion! 
  • Look out for exciting promotions from our bank partner with store-wide discounts
  • Sign up for newsletters for sale promotions and coupon codes.

Casual Yellow

This is probably my laziest outfit post up to date. :P

Wore this on my first night in Singapore. As I've said in my post a few weeks back, that city just screams out HUMID all over, so I'm so thankful I packed really comfortable casual clothes with me.

Top- Zara
Bottom- SM Redhead
Sandals- Cotton On
Bag- Bagellia Filipinas

I super duper love this pair of sandals. I bought it that same day from Cotton On for only 5 Singapore dollars (about 150-180 Philippine pesos). WHAT. A. STEAL!!!

The Asian pose, just because I'm Asian. Lolz.

Yep. Still pushing through with that Asian pose thing. HAHAHAHAHA.

Anyhoo, I'm not really in the mood to write much right now. I'm currently tripping into a pit of sadness, but then again, I somehow regain my balance and get out of that trap bit by bit, knowing that God loves me no matter how much I am misunderstood by the people around me.

I'm going to end this post by sharing this verse with y'all
"Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse." Romans 12:14

Guys, let us always be reminded that God loves us with an undying love. And He wants us to share His love to everyone around us- be it our friends, and even those who have hurt us. I know it's really hard, but praying for love, joy, peace, patience and kindness really will help.

Have a fruitful day, everyone!

For the love of super sales!

This is what I wore on my Day One in Singapore. It was my first time to go there, and I honestly did not really expect it to be THAT humid. Good thing I was wearing a pretty loose top and a mini skirt to compensate for the heat!

Anyway, now on to the outfit shots:

Do you like my stackable rings? I bought them from Cotton On for only 3 Singaporean dollars! That's somewhere around 100 pesos only :)

 I bought this pair of sunnies from Cotton On, too.
It only cost me 10 dollars (around 350 pesos). What a deal, huh? HAHAHA! I was also able to buy 2 pairs of flats from Cotton on for 5 dollars each (around 180 pesos each).

Yay for the Great Singaporean Sale! It happens every June, I think, where everything goes on SUPER. DUPER. sale and I tell you, it's just crazyyyyy!!!

The details of my fringe top :)

I bought this cute skirt from the Philippines just a month ago. I was able to snatch it for only 350 pesos. Hihi I just looooove 50% off discounts :P

Outfit details:
Fringed Top- thrifted
Skirt- Bayo
Shoes- Forever 21
Bag- Bagellia Filipinas

Well, to state the obvious, I'm a huge sucker for shopping (especially when stuff go on sale).

Do you have any recent fashion steals?? I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment below! :)
