Shop and Save with Groupon Coupons

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are on my prerogative.


“Whoever says that money cannot buy happiness, doesn’t know where to shop!”

I actually developed an affinity to this quote that has stemmed way back in 2012. I mean, you have to know what you want. Those pieces of monetary bills may not equate to happiness per se, but these will surely be a means to get you what will.

I actually remember the pain from a broken heart easing, when I bought three new pairs of shoes one December night. I mean, I may be single (that time), but I (back then) have the most gorgeous snakeskin and suede high heels on the planet!


But now that it’s 2017, and I kind of thought that I should be paying more attention on how I spend, it should come to people’s senses that managing one’s finances can bring a huge impact on how you set your priorities. BUT. There’s a big but. Shopping doesn’t have to be a gruesome experience to your conscience when you try to splurge on something you really want, and need!

Good thing, Groupon Coupons is here to save the day! Consequently, keeping up with shopping-until-you-drop is still amenable! Especially, if it’s for someone you love!

I know, I may have been pretty extravagant when it comes to spending cash before, but getting coupons to save on my shopping will do wonders once I plan to buy something. I may live in the Philippines, but it doesn’t mean I cannot avail the coupons. It basically serves a lot of locations in the west, and I may have to ask a friend or family to avail one for me, but who cares? I can still save by using my shopping coupons! And have them shipped here to my country.


So my dear International merfriends, this is something exciting for you! I know you will be delighted to use Groupon Coupons in your next purchases! Go check out their site, your ‘missing shopping piece’ awaits!

Here’s Your Chance to Win A Trip To Maldives


OMG! OMG! OMG! I have studied about Maldives way back in college in our Asian  Civilization subject, and I was literally left breathless with all its splendor! Unpopular to some, but Maldives is considered one of the best, if not THE best summer destination in the world! Their “islands” are actually atolls, hardened corals, and I am wondering how it must feel to atoll-hop! 😀

If you have checked prices and packages of going to this dream destination, it may make our hearts sink because it’s particularly expensive! BUT, good news! Nailaholics may just make your dreams and mine come true!


Walk into any Nailaholics branch and you are immediately ushered into a different world. The world quiets down, even for just a few hours, as you settle into the canopied seats. The gentle buzz behind its doors are reminiscent of the placid flurry typicaly found in beachside destinations. The colors evoke the calm of being beside the ocean.

Now, stepping inside a Nailaholics branch doesn’t just welcome you into a world of pampering, you’re actually taking your first step towards the Maldives; a destination recognized as this year’s best spa destination by industry, known for its clear, cobalt waters, hugged by a stretches of fine, delicate sand.

“Perhaps no other coastal destination has been so closely associated with the concept of relaxation,” says Glaiza Agbayani, Digital Manager  “This is why we chose Maldives as the perfect holiday treat for our loyal customers.”


From November 10 to January 27, availing of any of the Nailaholics package services will entitile customers to one raffle entry for the chance to win a trip for two to the Maldives.

Entitled Holiday Flyaway, the lucky winner will enjoy a four-day, three-night stay at the Maldives and indulge in the very elements that inspired the experience and aesthetic behind Nailaholics.

Visit Nailaholics as often as you can during the promo period to get more chances of winning. There’s no better reason to keep heading back to your nearest branch for me-time.

Get Pampered and Stamped only at Nailaholics


Having prepped up nails has always been a constant reminder on how much time I am putting in gorgeous effort to always look well-groomed and fabulous. With all the demands of work, it’s amazing how busy and working girls like me have the time and motivation to make our digits always extra-polished! I mean, who has time right?

Good thing, Nailaholics share the same sentiment and realize that every girl deserves to have some pampering time amidst all the kerfuffle of daily activities. Urban settings may pose a lot of stress, but living in a tropical country as well certainly has a lot of perks. Perpetually sunny days, year-round airy summer fashion, and an annual healthy glow thanks to a regular dose of vitamin D.


This also means it’s nearly always sandal-seaon. While not necessarily a drawback, it does take a lot of work to make sure your tips and toes are perpetually ready to be on display.

This is probably the reason, on top of the need to indulge in some much needed me-time, why you frequent your favorite nail salon so much. But Nailaholics is making it a whole lot easier for you to make sure you keep your tips and toes in top shape, get pampered, and keep coming back for more.


“Each visit to Nailaholics beginning November 21 until March 31 means you’re pampering yourself fora bonus little treat,” says Lorraine Baterina.

Avail of your regular manicure and pedicure or indulge in one of Nailaholics’ signature packages and treatments and make sure that you get you Pampering Card stamped. Get five stamps and you get your sixth mani-pedi for free.

“This is our way of making sure that you’re hands and feet are completely ready no matter what season, and of course, letting our loyal customers know that we appreciate them,” ends Lorraine Baterina, Brand Officer.

So what are you waiting for? Schedule an appointment now! Better set up for another girlfriend bonding, don’t you think?
