THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT

  Fellow moms and dads, you have to admit that the kid’s fashion that we see in the mainstream shops in Singapore is somewhat limited. When you go out to shop, you can’t help but feel like you’re always walking into the same few shops to dress your mini-me.  While we can applaud a burgeoning scene for kid’s fashion design in Singapore, the range of labels are still considerably small. We recognize for the frequent and discerning shoppers, variety is key.  And what better way to get access to that variety than through a large pool of small merchants. There actually is a movement of #shopsmall to support businesses opened by moms operating out of their homes. What we love about buying from small businesses like these is that the clothes you dress your kids in will be unique because they are made in small batches. The best thing about..

YOUR IDENTITY WITH US

We’ve already established that we all love small conveniences in our lives. Give us anything that would make our lives just a wee bit easier, and we’re sold! Recently, we saw one of those crowd-funding projects where someone actually invented a machine that irons AND folds your laundry for you! And we have to admit a few of us at BuyandShip were extremely tempted. YAAAAAASSSS, that’s how much we love life’s little conveniences. So we understand that it may seem so mafan when we act like your naggy mother to ALWAYS INPUT your unique member ID.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING A PACKAGE

It’s ok, we get it. We get into gancheong spider mode too when we are waiting for a package to arrive.  Our top wish is that teleportation will hurry and get itself invented so when they say that we can get things at “the click of the button”, it really will appear next to us at the click of a button.  But realistically, we still have to wait for our purchases to travel the distance to get to us. So we thought we’d give a quick brief on what to expect with travel times in order for you to zen yourself out, and know that your package WILL get to you.  Once you declare your packages with us, there really isn’t much else for you to do other than sit back and relax because the packages will automatically get transferred to our Hong Kong facility where your consolidated packages get weighed for the final..

SHOPPING ONLINE 101: CLOTHES

We’ve seen a lot of horror stories coming from the far corners of the internet of ladies who decide to buy clothes only based off the photos of random stores, only to end up with disastrous results.  That’s one thing online shopping lacks, the touch-and-feel of the retail business. Most of us only have the confidence to buy clothes once we see it in person, and try it on. Because can you imagine the embarrassment if your red dress for CNY came in the wrong shade? So we’ve pooled together our knowledge from our many experiences of clothes purchases to give you 5 tips for buying clothes online!  NOTE YOUR MEASUREMENTS Fast fashion is the culprit for this one. We are so used to seeing clothes in predictable sizing of S, M, and L that sometimes we don’t even think about how clothes fit, we just grab whatever we think is our size. But..

[DONDON] DON Q IN THE CROWDS

The Japanese brand wave is really starting to take over Singapore, what with the opening of Don Don Donki and Lumine. One thing we know for sure about the Japanese is that they really take great pride in what they produce. Who can resist their ingenious products and their adorable packaging? But the one frustration we have in Singapore is that it isn’t as easy to find as your usual Korean products nowadays.  Sure we can go to places like Tokyu Hands and Don Don Donki. But the thing about brick and mortar shops is they are limited to the range they can bring in. And why should we have to squeeze with the crowds only to find that what you want is sold out? We’ve shortlisted a few shops just for you where you can get access to a wide range of Japanese brands from the comfort of wherever you’re sitting.  Matsumoto Kiyoshi Though they..
