Remember how when you entered your first year of college you were so excited, but also scared, lost, and confused? And then when Year 2 rolled around you were a badass motherflounder with more friends, confidence, and worldly knowledge? Basically, turning 2 is always a big thing, because it marks a new milestone of having grown into a much more valuable entity who can play with the big boys now. Likewise, online shopping destination Lazada turns 2 this March, having come a long way from being just a homegrown e-commerce startup, to the massive mecca of online retail in Southeast Asia it’s become today. And how else does one celebrate such a momentous occasion? Why, with nothing less than a mega blowout Birthday Sale, of course! With just four days away, obviously our countdown has begun. Here’s a look at our top ten picks in The Lazada Birthday Sale, which – now that we think about it – actually could work as college essentials too (score! analogy full circle!) And don’t forget – everything listed here is pre-sale price.
#1: ELF Contouring Blush/Bronzing Powder, $7.80
#2: Clinique Eye Makeup Travel Set, $23.99

#4: Pobling Pore Sonic Cleanser White, $59
#5: Fjallraven Kanken Mini Backpack (Frost Green-Peach Pink), $95
#6: Michael Michael Kors Selma Large Satchel (Pearl Grey), $295
Nothing says ‘College Kid’ like a sturdy backpack, and fight it all you want, but Kankens are a chic but hardy style that’s here to stay. Fancy something a little fancier for your daily use? Definitely this classic Michael Kors satchel.
