2nd Gmarket Haul


In less than 3 months… there I go again. Gmarket!!!

I actually wanted to stop shopping at Gmarket because I think one day my self-control will break down. There are just too many things to buy. LOL Thankfully this time I managed to squeeze in only 10 items (had to forgo some items though… sobs sobs). What drove me to my 2nd Gmarket purchase? It’s because I was chosen as one of Gmarket’s Top Bloggers in March to which I won ₩50,000!!!

I placed 2 orders on the same day and UNFORTUNATELY I wasn’t able to combine both orders into 1 shipment. The system just won’t let me. I’m guessing it’s because I uses the cash balance of ₩50,000. Anyway I waited patiently for my 2 parcels to arrive and arrived they did! This time in a week time.

Here’s a breakdown of events (ordering to receiving) for my 2nd Gmarket order (2 parcels):
Placed order on 1st May.
All items arrived at Gmarket warehouse by 2nd and 5th May.
Shipment dispatched from Gmarket warehouse on 3rd and 6th May.
Parcels left Korea on 3rd and 6th May.
Received 7th and 8th May from Poslaju.
Total time: 7 days

P157 Sleeping Pants
The sleeping pants is exactly as shown in the product picture BUT the size is very big although stated as free size. I think it’s more suitable for large or XL people. Thankfully I can still wear it. The material of the pants is somewhat weird… like paper? My choice is actually the Paul Frank pants but they were out of stock so I choose this one instead because I find the material weird! Haha It’s not the most comfy to wear as the material is kinda rough. Update: After several wash, the material become soft and comfy. It’s one of my fav sleeping pants now. 🙂

I don’t usually go for flowery design but I thought this is beautiful. Now I’m trying to find a dress to go with this!

This seller from Babisoo offer 1+1 promotion. That is buy 1 free 1. I bought 3 scarves and I only received 2 free scarves. Not sure what happened to the other one.

Aren’t the fabric beautiful? A pity the size is just 35cm x 45cm. I plan to use these for my food styling. The actual color is a bit yellowish and not as over-exposed as the product picture suggest.

Beautiful mint fabric… ahh lovely. Food styling yeah! I might use these fabric for other things. Let me think first.

For these fabric, I had to pay an additional ₩2,500 for local delivery.

Overall, I’m actually a little dissatisfied with my purchases. First is the coarse/rough material and second, I feel like I bought too little stuffs! LOL
