A Shopaholic’s Den 2013 in Review

By  | 


In less than 24 hours, we’ll be entering into a brand new year, 2014! Time flies, doesn’t it? We’d like to take this opportunity to share about some of our favourite moments from 2013 and for all the things that we are grateful for

2013 has been a wonderful year for A Shopaholic’s Den thanks to all our partners, readers and blogshops who have been supporting us throughout the ups and downs of this journey

What Kept Us Busy in 2013

We’ve collaborated with 19 different partners for giveaways this year and have awarded 78 different prizes through giveaways for our lovely readers:


Apart from keeping busy online, we also had the privilege to co-organize three different on-ground shopping events with three different partners including our 3rd installation ofΒ Clothes Buffet, this time in collaboration with Phat Culture in May:

And while the blowout sale is usually the bonus round of a Clothes Buffet event, we co-organized a standalone blowout sale with Lush Serendipity early this December that did not only include clothes but also bags and shoes as well too:

Last but not least, we’ve also had the opportunity to collaborate with See Hoy Chan Sdn Berhad to organize a Christmas-themed bazaar that brought fashion, food and festive gifts together all in once place for our shoppers:


Besides organizing events, we were blessed to be invited to a host of fashion related events and also managed to attend many others that were open to the public:



We truly enjoyed ourselves this year and got to meet many people from different walks of life in the fashion and online shopping industry, which also opened up many more opportunities to work together for the future. 2014 is definitely going to be an exciting year ahead for us

    I deserve to win this because for most of 2013, I’ve been so focused on shopping for dresses and big handbags, that I’ve totally neglected the fact that I don’t have a single small clutch to call my own! 2014 is the year of weddings and this Miss Selfridge Pewter Metal Plate Clutch would go with everything I have!

    I deserve to win this seeing that I really have absolutely no bags nor clutches to go with my dresses and clothing selections. The clutch looks simple yet elegant to my liking and I really believe that it will go well with my outfits. On the plus note, January is my birthday month! Double the reason to deserve this. =)

    Dear A Shopaholic’s Den, I deserve and really hope to win this clutch,
    Oh how my heart yearns for this stunning creation so much!
    But why do I deserve to win?
    My tale unfolds as the story begins…

    I see such untapped versatility in this exquisite darling,
    I can creatively think of different ways to wear it and look stunning!
    By removing the strap and cradling it or slinging it on my shoulder,
    Beauty is not just in the eyes, but also in the hands of the beholder!

    I was never Miss neat and tidy,
    It’s embarrassing to admit but yes my bag can be messy,
    The clutch’s dainty compartments perfectly stores only what’s necessary,
    To help transform this girl next door to a organized, classy lady!

    It’s sheer elegance is such a delight that it empowers my inspiration,
    It would accompany me not just to events but also to travel destinations,
    The charm lies in it’s simplicity to effortlessly match my different styles,
    Bringing both practicality and functionality makes it even more worthwhile!

    For now I shall just keep my fingers crossed and pray very hard to win,
    If I do my heart will surely sing with happiness and on my face comes a huge grin! πŸ™‚

    I deserve to win this because I always believe in metallic designs even if my friends find me too geeky for having a liking on them as these remind them of sci-fi stuff:( Well, thanks to Miss Selfridge’s creative design of the Pewter Metal Plate Clutch, I can finally prove them wrong! Hopefully with this clutch I will be able to flip my hair and tell them “I TOLD YOU SO”XD

    I deserve to win this because I have never had a clutch before. Previously I only shopped for handbags because I felt that those were more functional. I recently started to realize that clutchs are really trendy and easy to match with clothings. I have been searching high and low for the perfect clutch and I think Miss Selfridge’s Pewter Metal Plate Clutch is perfect. πŸ™‚ I hope I can win this. πŸ™‚
