Thanks, friends.

There’s a lot that’s happening around us and we’re all trying our best to keep our well-being in check. Some—like young adults—apparently cope by looking at and sharing memes. And that’s totally okay (and a pretty cool way to use memes to your advantage, tbh). Other people, however, try to get by through a different, slightly more expensive way—online shopping.

Taas kamay kung isa ka sa mga “add to cart” nang “add to cart!” It doesn’t help when your friends support your online shopping, lalo na kung sila pa ang impluwensiya.

We asked followers if they’ve ever bought something online during the quarantine period because their friends influenced them to, and here are the top answers:

Ring light

Aminin, napabili ka rin ng ring light dahil sa kaibigan mong mahilig mag-TikTok, no? Others have been keeping themselves occupied by making TikTok videos. Some go as far as finally buying ring lights to support their new-found hobby.

Skincare

Now that we’re all just at home, we’ve got more time to devote for skincare! You might feel tamad some days, but to make it extra fun, why not video call with your barkada and do your skincare together? Share your skincare secrets with each other and stay moisturized while you’re at it.

Essential oils

Okay, this one might give you ~tita~ vibes, but essential oils are said to have health benefits. They also smell really good in case you’re the type who likes to keep the room smelling like a garden.

 

Crochet kits, things related to hobbies

We’ve got to keep ourselves occupied with things we actually enjoy doing, right? For some, friends have made them try out new hobbies, like crocheting!

Clothing

We might not be heading out any time soon, but that doesn’t mean friends can’t convince us to invest in clothing if it’s a good deal.
