National Pampering Day 2017

Real pampering is Nailaholics' campaign this year. This is taken from the strong desire to serve customers with the highest level of technical expertise and genuine care and to remind everyone to take it slow, take it easy, zone out and relax for a while.


We joined Nailaholics celebration of #NationalPamperingDay earlier today at SM Center Muntinlupa. I was scheduled for 10:30 slot and arrived on-time, (jam-packed na!). Husband and the kids accompanied me going there but left for a quick play at Tom's.


When they came back, the Store Manager invited them to try any of the FREE services as  there were available  nail technicians to accommodate them. 'O, di go!' They were asked to choose for a soothing manicure, calming foot spa or relaxing foot massage. They all agreed to have a relaxing foot massage.


The kids enjoyed the pampering experience! (first time) 😆


I was told that this was actually Nailaholic's 2nd Pampering event, we weren't able to join last year and thankful that we had the chance with this year's  bigger  and much more enjoyable due to extended event time and we got to pampered for FREE with a cause.

Yep, the best thing about this year’s National Pampering Day is that it will be in support to World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and Save Philippine Seas, wherein every visit means PhP10 donation from nailaholics to your chosen beneficiary.

So, yeah! we'll be looking forward for next year's pampering event and hope to win any of their giveaways 😀. How about you, did you availed of this pampering treat?

Fashion Inspiration from Yoins

Oh, I almost forgot I still have items sitting on my cart at  Yoins mobile app that offers 15% discount for my first order. Finally, today I made up my mind on what to checkout.



I have 4 items on my wishlist, but only 1 item make it to my final order. Why? Browsing thru trendy sexy dresses for women, I fell in love with this cami dress and found the color combination strikingly sexy and fab. 

So, I have to moved an item to 'saved for later' to give way for this gorgeous piece and had a change of heart for the other items (sorry...). Well, what do you think? This is actually my first time to courageously opted for a bodycon fit style and was very excited on how this gonna end up (hahaha). This is an obvious call for my girdle and body shaper to the rescue. 😉




Putting on a denim jacket over this bodycon dress would definitely gives out a casual touch for this feminine look. My  timeless light washed denim jacket is ready to pair up with this one, to keep me warm but not fully covering up a cute outfit.

And, because it's the time of the year for #sweaterweather, all those fashion inspiration to go beyond denims kept flashing on my screen. Among those fashion ladies sweaters online, I found this Round Neck Long Sleeves Jumper. I learned that the word 'jumper' was used more commonly in Britain and 'sweater' in US. I actually have in mind the jumper for little girls worn over a shirt 😅.

Round Neck Long Sleeves Jumper

Anyway, this one's definitely do its job to keep it warm and add a timeless knit on collection of wardrobe basic that can last season after season. It's on Sale for 41% OFF the original price, but have to remain on my wishlist at this time because my selection of  items has reached its limit already.

Here's my order summary, no tassel trend or anything. Sensible choice on basics and timeless pieces that can be styled no matter what season or occasion.

 

That's it! I will be sharing my review once my items arrived to give feedback on quality and shipping time. Stay tuned 😀

How To Handle Locksmith Situation Problem

Have you been in a crisis situation wherein you got locked out of your car? What about this situation happening at a very inopportune time such as middle of the night? Were you able to handle the problem calmly, efficiently and easily? Is there a 24 Hour Emergency Locksmith that can get you out of your stressful situation?

There is an extensive variety of conditions that may require the help of a locksmith. You do not necessarily need to replace a lock just because you are locked out. A very much qualified locksmith should be able to open all doors without expecting to change the whole bolt. However, handling locksmith issues can be tricky most especially if you don’t have enough knowledge and experience in solving such kind of crisis.



Unfortunately, lockout problems are a common issue and often than not, they happen in the middle of the night when most locksmith service providers are unavailable. There are individuals who run into such situations without knowing how to handle the problem.

So, how does one handle locksmith situation problems?

It is important to find a locksmith services provider that you are comfortable working with. Lockouts can happen at the most inconvenient hours, so make sure that your preferred locksmith offers emergency locksmith services 24/7. Keep their contact details handy, such as a business card tucked safely in your wallet or contact information saved in your mobile phone. Ensure that your locksmith is accredited for your region; this is for your own safety and security.

Once your locksmith has arrived in the scene and checked your lockout issue, don’t be afraid to ask questions, how they intend to solve the problem and whether or not there are alternative solutions if you deem that their initial solution might cause other complications. Additionally, it would be nice to ask about service warranty just in case the bolt or lock problem happens again.

Although, it might also help you to understand that most emergency locksmiths are knowledgeable in their field and have a good number of years of experience in rescuing people from distressing lockout situations. Additionally, they understand that addressing a crisis should not result to further damage to property, unless absolutely necessary.

Authorized locksmiths are skilled and know various methods for dealing with complex bolt issues. Ask questions, but try not to badger your locksmith while he works on your lock.

Once your lock or bolt problem has been resolved, take the necessary precautions to avoid getting locked out again such as getting a spare key duplicated and placed in an area where you can easily retrieve it when needed, such as your wallet or purse and of course taking care not to get locked out again!

Simple and High Quality Clothing from Zan.Style

With the rapid growth of e-commerce featuring safe and convenient online shopping, we can now shop with confidence even for fashion clothing considering the customer support that an online shop can provide. Delivering customers expectation, being true to what is advertised, and providing good quality items is what turning the consumers'  doubt into  trust.

When shopping online, it becomes a must to carefully look on customer's feedback with regards to quality and expected delivery time.


So, when ZAN.STYLE was introduced to me as an apparel brand that aim to bring all the fashion and beauty lovers with premium daily wear clothing which can highlight personality; ofcourse, I have to take a look on real feedback, from real customers!

Here goes the customers' review from Amazon:




Take note, "Premium Quality Clothing"! Now who wouldn't want to have a high quality items to wear? I was tasked to have my own review to actually see, touch, and feel Zan.Style's claim of "Simple but not monotonous, high-quality items but with reasonable price."

When the items for review arrived, I was surprised on its packaging! This is the first time I received clothing items carefully packaged in a box. Each item was neatly placed in a ziplock bag with cardboard and plastic pins to keep in place.

Zan.Style items from Singapore! Wow...😏
The promised of carrying out strict quality controls to ensure delivery with utmost care was met. For every item, they assure three quality checks: Factory, Local Warehouse and Pre-delivery. This results to receiving a high satisfaction rate from the customers.

Now, here's my Top Three Choices from ZAN.STYLE:

1. Stripe A-line Dress - Gray



This time, I went from my usual size of "Small" to Extra Small", carefully considering the size chart and the model's stats vs. mine. I altered this one on shoulder strap and sides because its a bit loose on the chest part. I never realized that on model's photo, but still loved this dress as it creates a fun and younger looking style.

Now it's a perfect fit, agree?

2. Loose  Strap Tank Top - White



Enter the coupon code to enjoy a huge discount on this Loose Strap Tank Top. I got this on "small" size. I love the classy strap and can easily tell that it was made of  high quality polyester that holds its shape well.



This was actually my first time to choose from 'bottoms' category from an online clothing site! The described material of 97 percent cotton and 3 percent spandex was pretty much accurate.

My overall remarks?


If you are on the look for simple and high quality items, then this is the recommended online shop for you. I honestly think that the price was higher compared to other shopping site, but then again, "ITEMS of high quality, doesn't come cheap".

It's good that they have an on-going promotion where everyone can enjoy 75% OFF for some of the clothes in the website. Always the best time to shop, is when there's a big SALE, right?

Well, this is another shopping site that's  recommendable for its high quality material and being true from what it advertised. I am very much pleased with ZAN.STYLE's durable, well-crafted and high clothing pieces. It is also the best site to shop on quality basics women's and men's wear collection.

PJ Masks Birthday Party Theme

We celebrated my youngest' 4th Birthday last week, and decided to have PJ Masks Birthday theme since it's her fave at the moment. And so two days before, I was busy cutting out faces of Cat Boy, Owlette, and Gecko for the DIY Birthday banner using construction papers. 😁


Complete Casts of PJ Masks for the banner center piece.
This is what I love about  themed party! I got the chance and have the perfect reason to splurged on DIY craft project. Simple things like this makes me happy, you know?😉 I'm actually excited to lose track of time doing crafts and DIY projects while taking creative ideas from pinterest. Doing so can help me keep calm and relax my mind, an interesting and productive hobby that I mostly enjoyed doing.





I ordered a dozen of  chocolate flavored cupcakes from Danise's Sweets and requested a PJ Masks fondant character topper  to add more feel on the bday theme.

And another dozen of Banana Nutella Muffin cupcakes and use the FREE PJ Masks Birthday Party Printable Files from Daisy Celebrates' blog for the cupcake topper (thanks Daisy!). 



We throw a small (more manageable and affordable! 😊) PJ Masks house party with family and some of our closest friends for this little Owlette fan! 


Balloons and Clown Party Host from SunCheers 😁

Triple Delight Cake from Goldilocks
The PJ inspired cupcakes were enough, so we just settled for this triple delight chiffon cake and use her Owlette mini figure as topper (tipid mode!).



The overwhelmed 'inward-looking' birthday celebrant with her friends.

Happy 4th Birthday Eirenne!
How I wished you learn how to be more outgoing and less of being the 'shy type', but then again, I can never pushed you into someone that you're not. Oh well, maybe you got your introverted side from mommy who,  most of the time feels comfortable being alone and prefer smaller doses or small groups. 😅

Anyway, we had a blast aside from this social skills issue, this small celebration surely  adds up to our most treasured memory bank.

My Lazada Return and Refund Experience

Though I highly recommends shopping online to save time and for one's own convenience, I also had my share of  online shopping fail (my first!) for clothing at Lazada's merchant. Good thing the return of item and refund was done 'in a breeze' . I was a bit disappointed but never discouraged from shopping online, but instead learn to laughed off and move forward.


"Before returning an item, do check Lazada Return policy to make sure your item is eligible for return.
If your return meets all the requirements, return can be initiated via Online Returns Form. The online Returns Form will only be available within 7 or 14 days from the time your item has been delivered, depending on the Return policy of the item bought."
After the form is completely filled up, proceed your return following the below steps:
Take note of the Return Number (RN) to be indicated on the LBC Package.

I have bought different items from Lazada; from toys, mobile accessories, household items and cleaner, beauty products, and more!

Lazada was my fave online local shopping site. They  also ship items from abroad. I was very pleased with their system and customer assistance. I can attest good service, why? because I am  a shopper and also  a seller on their site.

As a merchant, we actually experienced items for return due to failed delivery, meaning no one was there to received so the team  has to return the ordered items. Sayang ang effort sa packaging, but that's how it goes. As far as I know, Lazada sents a text message to customer informing the delivery schedule, but we can never blame a customer, right?

We also had our first returned item due to reason as 'Item NOT as advertised'. And that was long ago when a rep from Lazada volunteered to help me post photos and grabbed a photo of Cloth Duct Tape to our Aluminum Duct Tape for sale. I was new to posting products at that time, so it was my mistake for agreeing someone to post in my behalf. So there, lesson learned.

Now, going back to my shopping fail, here's the item I ordered last July 22, from International Seller:




Ordered: July 22
Estimated Arrival: Aug 4 - Aug 9 
but Arrived: July 29


Dropped off at LBC FOR RETURN: Monday, Aug. 1 (FREE Shipping!)


I was notified that the Item for Return was Received: Wed., Aug. 3




Confirmation of Paypal Refund: Aug. 3


Overall, I was satisfied with how simple and clear this Return and Refund went. That is why I am still confident to shop online because e-commerce never cease to provide innovative approach to ensure delivery of quality items to meet  every customer's expectation. 

Any similar experience?
