One of the most popular online shopping site I know Aliexpress. It is a china based brand owned by Ali baba. Anyone who hasn’t heard of Aliexpress is probably living under the rock. No offense. Aliexpress sells the most affordable items you’d probably not see such cheap prices at your local market. Although, most of the product is quite good irrespective of the ridiculously cheap prices. That is not to say that I haven’t had my worst shopping too from this site. Like most...
One of the most popular online shopping site I know Aliexpress. It is a china based brand owned by Ali baba. Anyone who hasn’t heard of Aliexpress is probably living under the rock. No offense. Aliexpress sells the most affordable items you’d probably not see such cheap prices at your local market. Although, most of the product is quite good irrespective of the ridiculously cheap prices. That is not to say that I haven’t had my worst shopping too from this site. Like most online brands, Aliexpress is an e-commerce store that many sellers can list their products for sale. You can shop anything from this site; fashion, tech, gadget, health care products, etc. Who doesn’t love affordable fashion?. So, in a bid to save and shop trendy fashion pieces, I shopped from Aliexpress. Hence, I will share my Aliexpress fashion product review along with my best and worst buys.
Aliexpress website houses a lot of products with many sellers. Although, the products are in categories. The only challenge is searching through the site for items. There are so many options and sellers to choose from. My tip to easily sift through the pile is by reading other shoppers’ reviews of the brand. You can also check out my post on how to shop online for beginners.
Personally, I mostly shop for fashion items from s. But my brother bought most of his tech items needed for his school project from Aliexpress. Tech stuff is quite expensive over here in Nigeria. Also, I choose items that offer free shipping to Nigeria. Aliexpress makes it easy for you to shop in your local currency depending on where you are. It has been programmed to provide such services based on your GPS or IP address.
It takes 25-55 workings days to get your order in Nigeria. Although, I got some items earlier usually delivered to the nearest post office to your home. Since there are different sellers on this site, items in your cart may arrive separately. I don’t like this about shopping on Aliexpress. You have to take more than one trip to the post office and pay a handling fee at different times. What I do is to wait for all items to arrive so I can pick it up at a once. Shipping may be faster for other regions closer to the seller country.
The above wait time is for standard free shipping. There are other options for faster delivery or express, fees apply though.
As I said earlier, I shop mostly fashion items from Aliexpress. The one time I bought a photography fluffy background from this site was because I couldn’t get it elsewhere. Anyways, I will discuss my best and worst buys from this site. This is peculiar to online shopping as don’t get to see or feel your items before shopping. So, you either hit or miss especially when the items are cheap too.
One of my best buys from Aliexpress is a rattan bag. I have used my rattan bag from this site for over two years now. Any time I use it, I keep getting compliments to date. It is uniquely made, unlike regular rattan bags. Rattan bags are very fashionable bags. You can wear for parties, casual outings or work. I also bought another stylish design for my big sister. So, I can recommend shopping for rattan bags from Aliexpress.
Another of my best buy from this site is a brown belted dress. It is a mini dress. I wear mostly for casual outings and to Lagos fashion and design week. I styled it with a pop sock. So, I can say shopping for clothing is okay. The dress is not made from flimsy material. So, I can say it okay for its price. You can dress up a dupe or cheap dress with jewelry and accessories. It is a chic way to look expensive on a budget. You can still stun in a cheap outfit.
I have also had my fair share of disappointment too on this site. If you read my blog on misconception around the use of anklets, I guess you know I love them. So, I shopped a lovely anklet from Aliexpress. It is just as beautiful as in the seller’s site. The anklet lasted for just three weeks of use. It broke and I couldn’t repair it. What a waste!. That’s not all, even the necklaces I bought faded so fast from gold to black under two wears. The worst is a wristwatch I ordered. Oh lord, it’s a far cry from what I ordered. What do I expect since it so damn cheap? It faded like other jewelry from Aliexpress. My sister’s skin developed irritation to the wristwatch too. Thank God for my skin.
Will I recommend shopping jewelry from Aliexpress? Hell no!. Others may have a different experience but mine has been bad. Another of my worst buy from Aliexpress website is underwear – lingerie. I was sold by the beauty of this site. Nice sexy options you can stun your man with. But I was disappointed too with my purchase. The cup of the bra was quite big and bust doesn’t fit. The panties we’re nice though. The second lingerie set was a total loss. It looks horrible from what was ordered. So, I will not recommend shopping lingerie from Aliexpress.
Like I said earlier, every influencer needs a banging photo prop for product photography, so, I bought one. I really loved the fluffy mats that you can lay your product for a nice background. I am yet to decide if this item falls under best or worst buy. It is nice, fluffy but smaller than a door mat. Even a pair of shoes can barely fit in. But it has been useful not withstanding. Well you may decide for me in the comments. So, this mat is basically hanging in it’s own category.
In as much as I had my good and worst experience from Aliexpress. I will suggest you read other shoppers’ reviews. Also, read the dispute and refund policy for each seller. So, if your cart is not what you want, you can send it back for a refund. You can also my post on how to shop online for a guidance.

It is not wrong to want to look fashionable at the airport. We all want to look our best in a new environment. First impression matters right!. The sad part about a bad airport dressing is that you may hold up the check-in line. Or worse still make yourself uncomfortable all through your flight. I would also share my personal mistakes on my first flight. As always, I wanted to look my best. So, I wore a tight-fitting mid-riff dress. Oh God!, I was practically adjusting the outfit all through....
It is not wrong to want to look fashionable at the airport. We all want to look our best in a new environment. First impression matters right!. The sad part about a bad airport dressing is that you may hold up the check-in line. Or worse still make yourself uncomfortable all through your flight. I would also share my personal mistakes on my first flight. As always, I wanted to look my best. So, I wore a tight-fitting mid-riff dress. Oh God!, I was practically adjusting the outfit all through. Also, I was mindful of my water intake so that I won’t need the bathroom. It would have been a nightmare!. In order to avoid a horrid situation at the airport, here are 5 common airport wardrobe mistakes to avoid when flying.
It is okay to want to be fashionable on a flight. It is preferable you go for clothes that are very comfortable. Avoid tight clothes or risque outfits like mini skirts. Tight outfits may give in while you’re moving your luggage around. Moreover, you will feel so uncomfortable and too conscious of your outfit. There are horrid cases of wardrobe malfunction while reaching for luggage compartment on the air plane. Also, another outfit you must avoid wearing is a jumpsuit. Jumpsuit are very stylish to wear but uncomfortable for a bath room break. So, for comfort, you can wear track suits or shirt with loose fitting denim pants.
Jewelry has a way of elevating your looks. It is a simple way you can look expensive. Also, you may set off alarms at security checks if you wear large metal jewelry or bracelets. So, if you must wear such jewelry keep it in a bag to be worn after check-in. Although, not all jewelry is going set off the security alarms. Jewelry like necklaces, chokers or rings is okay for the airport. The rule is that the jewelry should not be heavy like a statement piece or made of heavy metals. This will allow your seamless check-in at the airport.
Heels are perfect for board room meetings or after parties. But for airports, it is advisable to avoid heels altogether. You will have a long distance in the airport as well as stand on a queue through security. This can be quite uncomfortable with heels. Although, some of us can’t do without our heels, go for low heels or kitten heels for comfort. Your legs will thank you.
Another common airport wardrobe mistake you should avoid is wearing shoes with too much lace or without a zipper. We all know that you need to pull off your shoes through security. So, you may hold up the line while struggling to unstrap or pull off your shoes. For ease, opt for shoes that are easy to pull off like slip-on slippers, or loafers or sneakers.
Another common airport wardrobe mistake to avoid is putting on a sweater. There is nothing wrong with preparing for the weather. At times, it can be cold also around your take off the environment. Sweaters are a bad outfit option to wear to the airport. This is because the airplane can be stuffy sometimes. So, you will be warm in your outfit. The best option is to layer your outfit to the airport. This will enable you to easily shed the layers as needed when onboard a plane. For me, a tank top layered with a jacket on denim pants is a perfect airport outfit.
