ShopBack: Save while you Shop, guilt-free!

 While I love playing dress-up and am never tired of new clothes, accessories, shoes and all kinds of pretty fashion desirables etc, I’m aware of the significant amount of “investments” that go into efforts to look good and continuing feeding my Instagram account with the #ootds we all love to post. Yes I’m also most blessed and fortunate to have kind partnering brands sponsor apparels to refresh/update my wardrobe and lookbooks. Although I’m never one to be extravagant, I believe there are methods to shop wisely, keeping in mind cost-savings and alternative sites that offer cheaper prices for better deals.

Given such a competitive online retail landscape, it makes sense for consumers like us to maximise our shopping dollars and also enjoy the satisfaction from value-for-money buys. Call me a thrifty and cautious shopper but I hardly check out without utilizing some kind of discount code anymore. Unless I want the stuff that much or urgently, I’d rather wait for the next sale that comes along – which happens quite often anyway.

Then I discovered this awesome site called ShopBack, which revolutionizes the way we can save while online shopping. I have to share this – If you have heard of coupon code websites that give you extra discounts, ShopBack does more by scouting the best deals and coupon codes and present them to you. Additionally, they give you cashback on whatever that you finally pay! It’s almost like getting paid to shop! ShopBack assures that you’ll be getting the best savings possible on your purchases with them, whether they are on Fashion, Travel, Electronics, Lifestyle, F&B, and more! Leave the sourcing work to ShopBack and lie in the comfort of your couch at home, shopping away!

As you can see, I have already created my account and started browsing from their 500 merchant sites (both local and international merchants/platforms)! To my excitement I see online stores I frequent, such as Zalora, Lazada, Agoda, and even ASOS. Yes, ASOS. OMG. Luxola and RedMart too? Wow!

So what kind of cashbacks are they talking about? Apparently the best cashback rates in town. Always. ShopBack offers up to 100% of your cashback to you whilst not charging any fees whatsoever – their service is completely free!

This got me excited too! Melissa Shoes and Daniel Wellington!!

Just to throw in a few case studies – for example the recent NATAS Travel Fair:

Beyond exciting travel deals, ShopBack also gives you additional incentives to shop during the IT Show 2015 because you know you deserve that extra bit of savings or cashback.

In a nutshell, why use ShopBack?

Capture10

Well come on – I’m sure you spend more than the above amounts a year. Easily about 10x more and even more on groceries and food! That makes at least $2,000 in savings a year – quite substantial!

Capture11

Capture12

And the below relationship shows you how you enjoy the savings! No gimmick!

Capture13

Need a video illustration about how it all works? There you have it!

Ready to shop with cashbacks?! It can’t be more timely with the annual Great Singapore Sale (GSS 2015) fast approaching! Check out ShopBack’s GSS page for a greater shopping experience without the insane crowds and long queues. With even more coupons, promo codes and hot deals, do it ONLINE no matter you’re looking for clothes or groceries or travel deals or even home and living products.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY GUYS!

***

Right after Valentine’s Day, it’s Chinese New Year! And then it’s my birthday on the 20th – February is such a wonderful month for me :) And like me, Swatch is always up for a party – especially one that goes on for weeks! For Chinese New Year, Swatch joins Chinese communities in welcoming the Year of the Goat. Can’t wait!

Goats have been close companions to people in their daily lives. Goats also mean wealth and prosperity as they lived in ancient times in the households of rich people, where they were known as “Ji Yang”, which means “goats with luck”. Even today, people look on the tame, white-haired goat with favor as a symbol of a peaceful and harmonious life.

Inspired by these stories, Swatch has created a Chinese New Year Special, “The Goat’s Keeper” (SUOZ189). The colorful New Gent sports a goat, of course, on the dial and on the strap. This New Year’s Special is presented in Special Packaging as well – with the goat from the watch featured on the top of an oval cardboard box with a zigzag pink and green triangle pattern on the sides. Shiny gold dots swirl about the goat’s head, surely a sign of wealth, prosperity, and good fortune in the year ahead!

 Hurry now to the stores to grab this collectable timepiece at S$109 at all Swatch Boutiques in Singapore!

On behalf of Swatch SG, here’s wishing you a prosperous 2015!

Love, everyday. Till next time!

Yun Nam Hair Care Bloggers’ Promotion!

Is your hair condition as good as it looks?

Think again.

IMG_20150207_110544

Having long hair gives me the freedom and prerogative to style them in so many different ways for varied looks, which is great when I attend special events like themed parties, fashion shows and exclusive launches. A unique hairdo can make an outfit even more successful in pulling off the desired look. Imagine how a glamorous dress can be ruined when presented with limp, frizzy hair; when on the contrary, a classy, well-styled pony tail or luscious curls will guarantee heads turning and all eyes admiring you. Well people will stare, so it should be worth their while! However, frequent styling and bad choices of hair products may lead to problems such as hair loss or damage. To prevent such undesirable consequences, use styling products sparingly, and only if they are suitable for you.

To find out about your current hair condition and learn tips on how to care for your hair and scalp, do sign up for a complimentary hair health check with Yun Nam Hair Care!

Also, exclusively for this campaign, my readers will get to redeem a retail size shampoo worth $38 that caters specifically to your hair condition! :)
