Achica Review

Hi dolls,

I hope you are all well, and have had a great weekend!

Now you may be aware from the TV adverts about the website Achica, which is a luxury members-only site where you can buy anything from furniture to beauty and fashion accessories. Now I hadn't really heard about the website until the advert and went along to have a look. I was quite surprised to see the extent of products that they sold, it did literally range from everything and they even had some vintage Vuitton - which was a winner for me!

What I like about the store is the fact that the stock changes, which is sort of like a flash sale. Achica homewear host a number of sales and the perks of being a member is that you are able to see what days certain sales are and be prepared if there is anything you fancy. They start at 6.30am and run for a number of days with a set amount of stock, and the discounts are fabulous you can find on some products you are getting at least 75% off which makes these products a bargain.

Now I did wait a bit browsing through the store to find something that I quite liked the look of, and stumbled across this little beauty:

Amanda Marcucci skull bracelet*

So this skull bracelet was from Italian designer Amanda Marcucci, now this bracelet normally retails for around £40 but Achica were selling this for £22, so major savings alert! This did come in other colours but they sold out quite quickly as I was eyeing it up with the gold skull.

I think this really works for the fashion styles lately and can helps style many outfits. This is elasticated so if you do have a bigger wrist it may not be suitable as it fits mine just right, and my mom tried it on and it was a little tight on her.

Now onto ordering on the site, creating an account is really easy literally took less than a minute to do so that was a big thumbs up. It's really easy to navigate round on there, you can either look at their promotions on the home page or pop straight to the category that you want.

I will warn you that delivery does take a while this order was placed on the 18th Sept and their estimated delivery time was 10-17th October, but this didn't matter as I wasn't in a hurry for the item. However I did in fact receive this item in November, I'm not quite sure what happened during the delivery of this item. So if you do like items to be delivered quickly, this may not be the website for you.

Saying this, if you don't mind the delivery time this is a fab website, and they stock such a huge range of products. I do infact keep checking every few days to see what sales they offer and have seem some real gems like the Rituals products at great prices.

Luxury doesn't have to cost a fortune!

If you do want to have a look on the website I have a code where you can get £10 off your first order which is FTSCHIC.

Hope you enjoyed, have you tried this website out?
