With social media, basically Instagram, on the rise, it’s no wonder that online shopping is now and no doubt, fun! Since I’m avoiding Christmas rush and also too lazy going out and hustling at malls this Christmas season, I decided going on an online shopping, on Instagram! And yes, it is more convenient and relaxing! Plus that feeling of excitement when you know you’re item has been shipped so the time you got home from school, you hastily check if your order has arrived. And opening the parcel, is like opening presents! So much fun and excitement, yay!!
And also, online shops often sell and offer better (or should I say— best) products that cannot be found at malls and physical stores such as personalized items, which I definitely love because I got to pick my own design or style plus my favorite words, phrases, and such.
Sharing with you that I used my own money buying my stuffs on Instagram. I did the 20-peso challenge since January 1, 2017 (wherein I keep/save 20 peso bill a day) and now I almost got 7,000 pesos. So yeah it’s a part of self-discipline but I deserve a break so I’m treating myself! Below, I made a list of my top fave IG shops with good quality of products and of course, sweet & approachable sellers. (In no particular order)
1. The Cleanup Files (@thecleanupfiles)
Love these custom jewelries! 100% hand stamped and very accommodating + sweetie seller! Affordable stuffs for kikay gurls like me, hehe. Plus you can customize whatever initials, word, or even a quotation you love on their handmade pieces! Quality and quantity’s superb! And they got browsable & aesthetic feed!
2. Ayn Mnl (@allyouneedmnl)
Who says track pants are only for men? Loving my vintage OOTD with this three-stripes track pants + mustard sunnies. Such a perfect combination. Super fast transaction plus stylish quality of products!

3. Dap Eyewear (@dap.ph)
Bought it at @fashionbuffet.ph — Unit 1 Maclane Centre, National Hiway, Brgy San Antonio, San Pedro Laguna 🙂
This one’s perfect for your specs appeal, oops. Hehe. Super love my specs from Dap Eyewear + it is affordable and budget friendly. Will buy and surely hoard more of their colored specs soon.
Play time with my new favorite sunnies ♥ YAAAAAS, so perf!
PS. I usually use Dap Eyewear’s Spectacles & Sunnies for my flatlays that makes it even more better 🙂
4. Fashion Tees Ph (@fashionteesph)
I got my tagline (Queen D) printed on a black shirt and Queen Queen Queen on a white shirt. They have high quality t-shirts and prints with thick fabric and at an affordable price! You can also have yours printed on a shirt, pullover, or string bag. Check more of their items on their Instagram account.
5. Never Been Cased (@neverbeencased)
I really had a hard time looking for cases for my 2015 model phone. Cases are phase out already and couldn’t find those fab and artsy cases. That’s why I’m so glad having found this IG shop. These shock proof transparent cases are the best accessory my phone ever had. It prevents scratches and cracks whenever my phone falls (and walang sumalo, lol). I had it again customize with my name and initials some other kaartehans of my choice. I have been cased! How about you? Check ’em out now!
6. The Fur Factory (@thefurfactory)
This is where I got my faux furs for flatlay purposes and also for my room accessory. So fab though!

7. Fairy Lights Phl (@fairylightsphilippines)
This 5 meters white fairy lights is now my thing! I just love to make awra with it, hihi. It’s battery-operated (2pcs AA battery) so tipid sa kuryente! Well, I’m not that good yet at taking photos of it. But I’m enjoying though especially when setting up my camera.
Please don’t judge me but I really tried! Ha ha! Check out their instagram account for more of their different bright lights.
8. Mean It (@meanitph)
Though I ordered through Facebook messenger, I first saw this shop on Instagram. And yep, ya’ll know I freakin’ love customizing my things and stuffs so I was the one who have chosen my design.
The quality’s so good + very affordable price + super trendy and fashionable + superb customer service and assistance. Just wow. Check out their Instagram account or Facebook account for faster and easier transaction (https://www.facebook.com/meanitph/) and for more of their products.
Always be careful when shopping online! Check feedbacks and tagged photos of the shop to confirm their legitimacy. Be a nice buyer as much as possible. Also, pay on time and don’t forget to say thank you when your item has arrived.
