Effortless Shopping tips to all Shoppers On the Go

Secure Shopping
•         For mobile shopping, choose shopping sites with an app. It’s easier to use and most importantly, more secure as it’s harder to tamper with.
•         Check news articles about the shopping site to ensure it’s not a temporary online shop that will disappear after pocketing your money.
•         Ensure the shopping site has a return policy such as Lazada’s Buyer Protection: online shops without return policies can mean scam or unauthentic products.
•         Do not give your password to anyone. Online shops’ email support or call support personnel should never require your password for identification.
•         Only use your credit or debit card on sites with a padlock icon in the URL bar. This means the site uses secure communications to prevent any third-party eavesdropping.
•         Check for security labels such as PCI-DSS certification. This means the shop has been audited and is certified safe to use.
•         If you don’t receive an acknowledgement email from the online shop shortly after a purchase, there might be an issue with your purchase or it might be a scam. Call the site’s hotline to verify.
•         If you strongly suspect you have been scammed and your credit card information has been stolen, contact your bank or credit card issuer to block the card and investigate.

Savvy Fashionistas
•         Pick the right size by using the size chart feature, taking your measurements and checking carefully for any international conversions (UK, US, EU, Japan).
•         Ensure the site has an exchange policy like Lazada’s 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed policy that enables you to return clothes within 7 days, and re-order the outfit in a size that fits you perfectly.
•         Only shop for fashion on shopping apps that provide a few angles so you can see exactly how the clothes fit on the model or mannequin.
•         Get your friends’ comments or ‘likes’ easily by sharing the item on Facebook or Instagram before buying.
•         Read product details to check on the fabrication so you’ll know how the clothes feel on you.

Parenting Shoppers
•         Spend quality time with your family instead of getting caught in traffic to the shopping mall. Shopping at the Lazada Mobile App lets you shop at your convenience, any time of the day!
•         Diapers and milk powder are not only expensive, but heavy to carry. Look out for online promotions and take advantage of door-step delivery.
•         Follow the Lazada Super Moms Facebook page and subscribe to the newsletters to get the latest deals delivered straight to you.
•         Don’t let getting overwhelmed in crowded malls and toy stores stop you from giving the best to your kids. Shop for educational toys online, conveniently.
•         If you’ve brought the wrong size of maternity clothes, take advantage of Lazada’s  100% Satisfaction Guaranteed policy. Return the wrong size within 14 days (30 for Vietnam), and re-order the outfit in the right size.

Tech Addicts
•         Online shopping allows you to compare prices for your favourite gadget. Do keep a look out for sellers on the same site that may offer a bigger discount or bundle deal.
•         Searching for phone accessories, power banks and covers is less overwhelming online as you can easily compare your options and colors, and sort them by price.
•         Subscribe to Lazada’s newsletter or like our Facebook page to get news on exclusive and limited edition tech launches.
•         When looking for a gadget in a specific model or colour, check out Lazada’s wide range online first. It’s better than visiting the retail store and discovering the gadget’s sold out.

A Cozy Nook for Book Lovers and Coffee Lovers

Here is a place that is very cozy and relaxing for book lovers and coffee lovers. Books and Border Cafe' which is located at the heart of Quezon City. The place is so accessible that people can easily drop by for a cup of coffee.

As homeschooler we study anywhere like coffee shops and tea house. This is a very suitable place for us to study since the atmosphere is like a library and coffee shop.

Putting together two of your favorite past times, reading and enjoying a cup of coffee, in just one place, newly-opened Book and Borders Café is set to become one of the metro's more popular hangouts.

Charming and inviting, Book and Borders is the latest themed cafe to open in Quezon City, catering to customers who have an appreciation for good books and equally good food and coffee.

The opening was graced by Karylle

The assorted dessert and pastries they offered while reading your favorite book a and drinking your cup of coffee.

Located at 281 Tomas Morato, Quezon City, Book and Borders, unlike other crowded cafes where people are more engaged in chit chat, has purposely turned their space into something that is more relaxed and quiet.

This is because the cafe encourages customers to go through their extensive selection of books, and take their time to hangout or read. In fact, the cafe also makes books stands available for its customers, to make reading their chosen book, much easier.

Complementing the nice ambiance and the library aspect of the cafe are delicious light fare and refreshing drinks.

Aside from delicious muffins, breads, cupcakes, pies, tarts, squares, doughnuts, and cakes (salted caramel chocolate cake), Book and Borders also serves more filling menu options like pasta (truffle mushroom pasta, tuyo pasta), sandwiches, (beef pastrami panini), even salad and breakfast options. For drinks, there's coffee of course, in variety of options, as well as refreshing smoothies for hot days.

The cafes brand ambassadors, Karylle and Benjamin Alves are both book lovers, and represents what the cafe wants to promote very well; which is to encourage the habit of reading as well as indulging in one's love for coffee. The two self-confessed book lovers were present at the cafes grand opening last July 28, wherein guests were treated to the cafes bestsellers and we're given the chance to enjoy the selection of books that are available.

Carry the tagline, Read. Sip. Dine. Book & Borders is definitely a must-try not just for book lovers and coffee lovers but anyone who is looking for a nice place to hang out in the busy metro.

To learn more about Book & Borders, follow them on Instagram (bookandborderscafe) and Twitter (@bookandborders). You may also call them on (0932) 871 7856.
