It is quite a rare thing for me to do hauls. I don’t necessarily buy things if I don’t think I need them. But when Zaful, an online shopping site based in Hongkong, offered for me to make a review of their brand, I did not think twice.
I was already familiar with their brand that time because they have already popped somewhere in my Facebook timeline ads. Their products are so cheap and the photos on display were really appealing that anyone may first think, “Is this a scam?”
Well, it turns out that Zaful is pretty much not a scam. After more than two months of waiting for their package, I finally got it last week. It actually took so long because I opted to ship it here to Italy instead.
Let’s head on to my haul and what I think about the items I chose.
Zaful Online Shopping Haul
For a first-time customer, I didn’t want to purchase clothing and/or items that I’m not sure would fit me. Rather, I went with the accessories. This bag is one of my first few picks. I do think it looks very classy and sophisticated. Fortunately, Zaful did not fail. I totally loved the quality and design of the bag and it even served as my backpack during my trip to Rome (no pickpockets tried to slash it, luckily).
This collarbone necklace is super lovely. I liked the design and simplicity of it and it looked exactly as how it was shown in the photos in Zaful’s site. But then again, the beads seem more like plastic which isn’t really a problem. I kind of just expected them to be more metallic.
I am somehow obsessed with chain layered necklaces by the time I ordered these. The necklaces I picked for this haul are the proof. I liked the design of this particular necklace – especially the cross – but the chains didn’t look as the one in the photo. The chains were a little thicker than I expected which is kind of a downside for me since I only really like wearing necklaces with thin chains.
I’m also such a lover of the moon. It just really fascinates me every time I look at it. I actually even start my journals with “Dear moonlight,” just because I feel like, just by looking at it, it already knows my thoughts. That’s the reason I purchased this necklace. After receiving it, I can say that I wasn’t disappointed with this product. The chains were thin and the pendants were really beautiful. The only concern was that it was far too long for my neckline although I’m pretty sure, I can still work on it in some of my outfits.
I honestly don’t even know what popped into my head when I purchased this. I probably thought they were cute (??) and also useful for my daily makeup routine. I only ever use minimal base makeup though so I’m still not sure when to use these. Still, I liked how little they are and can actually fit in my mini-makeup bag for me to bring everywhere.
This, besides the bag, is probably my most favorite from this haul. It definitely looked exactly like the one in the photo and works really well with any outfit I pair it to. It’s a little big for my wrist though but I still use it almost every day just because I really love the chicness of its design.
