How to Buy a Prom Dress on the Internet | Extra Safe

For a working mom like me, whose job and passion are highly-dependent on the digital universe, it's hard to imagine the world without the internet. I used it on a daily basis to communicate to people: check on my kid at school, pay my bills, book a ticket, skim the news, grab a ride, watch movies, read a book and shop for literally everything.

Believe it or not, online shopping is part of my family's goal of automating everything.  With Chloe heading to kindergarten and a huge shift to our normal routine, having everything delivered to us (yep including groceries) can carve out significant hours towards quality family time.

But the digital world can be a dangerous place for scam and identity theft. And online shopping can be a risky habit. One minute you're checking email and the next moment you're in an online shop with two or more products in your shopping cart. What's worse is when you have no idea about the stores' online buying process. 

I've teamed up with PromShopAU to share some tips and easy guidelines when shopping online.

Having been in the online business of formal dresses for 8 years, PromShopAU knows exactly how to satisfy consumers with their clothing desires. Their high quality and fashionable prom dresses had won the wide reputation of their customers all over the world. PromShopAU is one of the fastest growing companies for fashionable formal dresses including wedding gowns, prom dresses, cocktail dresses, homecoming and so on. 

As a customer oriented, PromShopAU is working it's best to meet all your needs and for you to have an enjoyable shopping experience.

Set aside some time when shopping online

Shopping for prom dresses or formal dresses can be so tricky. The reason I've spent 20 to 30 minutes online to check on meticulously before I purchase. My husband used to complain about the drudgery of having to walk to every floor of a shopping mall and having to check every single item on the rack when I do actual shopping which all men can nod in agreement. I still do that except only at the convenience of my phone and computer screen. I take my time checking on every detail of the product I'm buying. One of the ugly truths of online shopping is that photos can be confusing: lighting and some photo editing can play a big role on the aesthetic - be extra careful in choosing the design and fabric. 

Check the safest payment options available

While PromShopAU warrants a safe payment online or off-line as their page is secure, encrypted and protected with the best encryption software in the industry (SSL), some online shops can steal and store including your most sensitive information. I personally prefer opting for Paypal when buying online. The seller never sees your credit card information as you can link those details directly to your account. An extra protection against fraud and identity theft.

Verify their delivery and return policy

While there may be times and event that you are not absolutely in love with your purchases, I suggest that you try on the product as soon as you receive it without altering or removing the tags. Most online shops like PromShopAU offers a few days return policy after shipment given the product is in its original condition. You should be aware of the company's policy on when to return the item and get a full refund including the postage.

How many times you have come across a beautiful dress or chic accessory online and thought of buying it? Keep these tips as a refresher to all the bad things that have probably crossed our minds when online shopping.

Happy online shopping,

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

How To Instantly Add Luxury To Your Wardrobe

As you have probably guessed, I literally spend a good part of my day shopping online. Yep, when major sales popped out, I'll stop what I'm doing to catch a glimpse on which of those pieces look good on me.

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
