If you’re a frequent reader of my blog then you’ve probably already read about my fascination with Ali Express! In case you’ve been living in a hole and don’t already know, Ali Express is basically this amazing online marketplace website based in China. You can buy things (almost anything!) for literally pennies which are then delivered to you (usually free!) within a few weeks. I am basically obsessed with ordering 10 things at once and it only comes to a few…

If you have never heard of it before, Ali Express is an online marketplace where you can buy things from hundreds of different sellers based in China. There are literally millions of things that you can order; you can pretty much buy anything you want!  I’ve been using Ali Express for a few years now and I always have people ask me where something is from and are surprised when I tell them I bought it super cheap (sometimes things cost…

Thanks to Terri I am now a bit of an Ali Express shopaholic. I’d used the website in the past for buying cheap phone cases (in the shape of penguins etc, you know the ones) but recently a little stalk has unveiled a whole world of faux designer goods!
