SM and Globe Together?

Well, not together, together. But something really exciting is happening now! 😀


I am so psyched to know that SM Supermalls will be partnering with Globe Telecom Inc., to fire up the mall-going experience by boosting free internet services in selected SM malls nationwide.

I recently knew that it started last November this year. I usually go to SM to shop, particularly SM North EDSA, and this is just great news don’t you think?
From now on, you can save up on your data bandwidth, and be able to access everything you need online!


As a blogger, and entrepreneur, it’s highly essential to be plugged 24/7, and this team up is just going to make things a lot easier, more seamless, convenient and more enjoyable!

Being #AlwaysConnectedAtSM, customers can update their social media accounts, check out emails, review movie schedules, book a ride and get in the latest scoop on what’s new regarding dining spots, fashion finds, beauty loots, and anything that SM houses in its gigantic roofs.


Mall goers only have to connect to @SMFreeWiFi through their devices to enjoy 60 minutes of free data service.

Wait, there’s more!

SM’s GoWiFi Auto will also be available for customers to experience up to 100Mbps of high-speed internet connection with affordable promo packages starting at P15/day. All they need to do is open their device’s WiFi settings, connect to @GoWiFi_Auto hotspot, and follow the easy step-by-step instructions on the pop-up screen.

Being two the most prominent brands in the country, SM Supermalls and Globe’s tandem will surely be a major hit in giving everybody high-speed internet services, that’s going to take the SM mall experience to greater heights!

How My Shopaholic Tendencies Landed Me in the Shopee Birthday Bash and its Video Collaboration

I have a confession to make. I never thought I’d like this. I was just trying it for a little bit, you know, testing it for a little while. But then, little whiles became days, weeks, months, years – and there was nothing I could do to stop.

Forgive me please, but I am a shopping addict. 


I remember visiting the nearby mall in our university back in college every after school. I used to sneak my shopping goodies inside my bedroom window first, before finally going inside the house’s main door.

I was afraid my Mom will scold me again. But I was terminal. :/ Haha

Too ill to heal. 😀


You see, looking back I never really regret shopping much. Wanting nicer things actually pushed me to go pursue a business, so I can afford the things I want.

Little did I know, these “shopaholic tendencies” would pave the way for some opportunities, aside from Versaheel.

Last night, I went to the Shopee’s Birthday Bash!




(Ms Kathy Kenny Ngo,  Katsy Faustino and Me)

It was wonderful, and even though it took me forever to arrive because damn, the traffic was treacherous; I was still able to come in one piece.

Ibiza Beach Club was stupendous! I have seen one that’s similar in Cebu, and it is such a genius to have something like that here in Manila!

The place was in an all-white-theme, and that spells the extra class of the venue! We were situated in arc sofas and the little platforms served as pathways. The water in the little pools on the sides made everything more magical!



I am really grateful for being part of this year’s Shopee’s anniversary party. Not only did I meet new people, I was also given the chance to participate in its video collaboration with Manila Mash.


(With Drey Uy and Ms Kathy Kenny Ngo of Manila Mash)

We had the shoot in Café Libertad in Amorsolo, Makati. You’ve got to visit them! They have the most flavorful sandwiches in Makati, I tell you!


In here we talked about how convenient shopping became because of this app. I never have to go out just to canvass and buy something. Looking for a product became a lot easier through Shoppee!

You can watch the full video here, as produced by Manila Mash in collaboration with Shoppee!


It also helps me market Versaheel more. I can say that Shopee’s features come in real handy for entrepreneurs like me, because it allows us to have a medium to sell our products and get searched in the most suitable and convincing way!

Plus, the Shopee Guarantee makes it more genuine and safer, because the app becomes your gateway in buying online. And a seller will only collect the payment, once you, the buyer receives the product.

Trust issues are even addressed directly!

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!

Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more updates!

New Shoes Heal Broken Hearts


New shoes heal broken hearts.

We often hear the quote “Good shoes take you to good places.” But I’d also like to say that “New shoes heal broken hearts.”; like a new found love.

There was actually a time when new pairs made me feel better after a broken heart. I mean it sounds way too materialistic but fellow shoe-o-holics understand…right? Laying your eyes for the first time on a pair of shoes you never thought you’ll find is literally love at first sight. You don’t know yet how it will make you feel once you wear it, comfortable or not, but who cares, you have just seen the most beautiful man-made creation ever. And nothing matters.


But of course, you got attracted to it first, but once your feet touch the sole, and for one fleeting moment you know it’s just meant to be! You were bound to be astray in this store, and it will make you feel lost, and found at the same time! Your heart can’t just stop beating, and you know deep down, you deserve these. You even have an outfit in mind! 😀

So, my fellow merfriends, I would like to share a special spot in my blog about the lovely shoes that I wear to work, to parties, to speaking engagements, to events, and to my literally aimless wandering in the beautiful places of the world.

And for my first shoe post, please applaud my sturdy splatter shoes from Janylin.

I actually first saw this shoe design last June 2012, but was a bit hesitant to buy it, since it was a bit too much for my paycheck at that time. Months after, I saw them again on sale! Size 6 was on display, and I had a hunch that it may be the last one because of its astonishing price of 299! To my good fortune, the saleslady said both colors were available for my size, which is 7! Without further ado, I asked her to get them for me for there was no way these shoes will not carry my feet. I was jumping with joy!

Good gracious, to think that I was in the store because we were supposed to buy new school shoes for my sister! Haha My family was actually in shock when I came up to them with 2 bags, to think that my dad only gave me 500 to get myself something. Nauna pa raw ako makahanap!

Oh well, when it comes to shoes, you have to be aggressive! And if the shoe fits, buy it in every color! It was a bit sad that the other variant wasn’t available anymore. There was actually a rainbow splatter variant.

Brand: Janylin Shoes

Where I Got Them: Sta. Lucia Department Store

Original Price : P1,799.00 (a pair)

My Steal: P299.. each

Shoe type: Platform Pumps

Material: Faux Leather

Heel height: 4.5 inches

Design: 10/10

It’s perfect for my life! I can always repeat and mismatch plain clothes; give them extra oomph by just wearing these statement heels, and voila, my #ootd is saved! Thanks to my Janylin splatter heels!

Comfort Ratio: 7/10

They feel nice on the feet. The sturdy heels (not to mention the design) are good enough to carry your weight, although when they were new I still have to put some shoe gels to protect the skin over my calcaneal tendon, to prevent it from developing blisters.

Comfort Duration: I use this for training and I can withstand wearing it for 3 hours straight; then I switch back to flats for 1.5 hours, then wear them again for another 3 hours.

Versatility Ratio: 6/10

The shoes are a show-stopper in itself, so I try to wear them with less loud clothes such as plains and monochromatic pieces. But apart from that, I can wear them with anything as long as its Black/White and Blue/Green/White!

Best worn with: Black and Whites, Blue and Greens, Jeans, and Dresses

Value for Money: 10/10 !

I got them on sale, and at 83% off to boot! And with THIS design, what more can I ask for? Thank you shoe goddess!



Perhaps this is my most successful bargain for platform heels yet! What do you think? Do you also have the same shoe story? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

ALDO anything for you!

If we’ve been friends forever, you should know that shoes do not just occupy a big portion in my heart – they are my heart.

In buying shoes whether online or not, I only have one self-imposed rule: If it doesn’t make my heart beat – pass.

I do believe that life is too short to wear boring shoes, so if it fits, buy it in every color! After my Nailaholics Pampering Sesh , I stumbled upon this haven in Robinson’s Metro East. Please note I am just human, a mere mortal, defenseless and powerless under the magnetizing force of these four letters : S-A-L-E.


Told ya! How can you not adopt these babies? They fit perfectly, they have gold heels, and they come in mint color! How many times do you find Aldo heels in mint??? And how many times do you get them for more than 50% off? Never!

So you see, no blaming here! Thank you for understanding me! Haha :))

So what are you waiting for? Head on to Robinson’s Metro East and get youself some shoe shopping retail therapy! Show your newly painted digits more love!

And now that’s what I call the Ultimate Nail Pampering Day!


Lets shop together sometime? 😀
