Cheap Shopping for Electronics at Groupon

 I have been compensated of this post with either a sample product and/or payment. All opinions are mine.

The sun is shining brightly outside. It is such a beautiful day! It seems like a perfect day to go somewhere, maybe window shopping or strolling with friends in the city. I even got an invitation from a friend today to have lunch with her. Sad to say, I cannot go  since I am not really feeling well for almost a week now. I hope and pray that I will be feeling perfectly good again and back to my normal health.

 Good thing  to know, life is never boring now especially with the advent of modern technology like computers and internet. One thing you can do is browse online and go shopping. This is what I am doing the past days, window shopping at home. I actually need a new laptop. My favorite laptop broke down anymore when I updated it to Windows 10. According to my colleague, it is not really advisable to do an update or upgrade to your laptop. Whatever system it came, let it be. I regret it when I updated it, when in fact, it is still working good.

Anyway, I am still thankful because there are a lot of online shopping stores that offers huge discounts on many products. I also found out that Groupon Goods are simply awesome! While searching for a laptop in their site, I found out that most or maybe all of their products in this electronic category  offer huge discounts.  That would mean a lot of savings for a  cheap shopper like me. Their laptop deals are enormous that I am now  confuse of what laptop to buy. lol..  I still have time to decide. The good thing is, I can shop at the comfort of my home and even have a lot of choices at Groupon.

I am loving this site especially that you don't need to pay for a  membership which means additional savings for our wallet.  Fellow shopaholic, what are you waiting for! Enjoy shopping to us!

Finally Got My Travel Confirmation

It looks like somebody will be travelling again soon. How I really wish that I am always on the road because it is the place and  time when I see and feel myself at best.  Gone are those years when I can travel anytime and anywhere I want. Anyway  I am so grateful that inspite the full time job I am having right now, I can still  do some travels somewhere out there.

I remember my colleague telling me today that she still have 150 days before her visit to the United States of America. I  told her, that is good to know about that and I surprised her by saying  that I only have less than 60 days before my next travels.

And yes, I finally received the travel confirmation.  I would say, I am getting excited day by day that sometimes the thought every night of visiting a special place will come nearer that it makes me go to sleep so late.

I booked the plane ticket last January. I believed  the price of the ticket was already fair enough but then, when I remember the prices 12 years ago,  it seems that it is double the price already.  It does not matter most since I am really getting excited for this vacation.  I believed this will be the highlight of my travels for this year.

Lord of Travels, please always guide and protect me and all those who are traveling along the road to be safe and in good condition  in their journey.

I guess, this is all for now. I have to hit the sack before it gets too late. Take care everyone!

Can't Wait for Spring and Do Gardening!

Hello lovely people in this universe! How have you been doing out there? I hope everything is doing great especially during the past two months of 2016. So far, I can't complain for now.  I seldom complain anyway because I  believed  life has been good to me,  living simply and happily. Thanks to my family and friends for all their inspirations. Above all, thanks be to God for everything!

Lovely yellow tulips in the backyard during spring season.

I am just  happy because I cannot wait for my favorite time of the year, the spring season. Last weekend,  when I visited the backyard, I found out that the first spring flowers like crocus are slowly blooming. Sad to say, it snowed last Monday and I hope  that they are not frozen. I need to see them again this weekend.

Various kinds of tulips in our backyard.  I am getting excited to see them again.

Last Tuesday, it was not snowing and today  the weather was friendlier. There was sunshine and  everytime when the sun is shining,  I felt happiness in between. I grew up in the tropics and there is always sunshine everyday.

I am getting excited for the spring time. I can't wait to do some gardening and see the first spring flowers like tulips, narcissus, crocus, hyacinths and daffodils. 

For now, let me share some  spring flowers to brighten your day. Cheers and all the best for the month  of March.  Take care folks!

Christmas Decor Tips and Ideas

Decorating for the holidays has become far more elaborate than it used to be. No longer are colorful lights enough to help people get into the Christmas spirit. While people are going bigger and better with their Christmas decorations at home, so are commercial businesses. LED lights, oversized decorations and interactive displays are quickly becoming the norm for commercial christmas decorations because they can be effective in attracting traffic and customers. Since the process of decorating a commercial building can be a challenging process, here are some tips to make the process go a bit smoother.

Know Your Restrictions

Before planning what type of decorations you want to display, it is vital to know any restrictions that may be in place on your property or in the surrounding area. If you are leasing a space or building, the landlord may have restrictions as to how elaborate a display can be. Some cities also have restrictions on the height of Christmas displays.

Know Your Audience

Ask yourself, "Who are the people you hope to attract with your decorations?" For example, if your business is in an area where there are large groups of people who celebrate holidays other than Christmas such as Chanukah or Kwanza, think about what appeals to them. If your business caters to families with young kids, think about what would most appealing.

Buy From A Reputable Source

Christmas decorations for commercial spaces have become big business over the last few years. As a result, there are lots of companies vying for your business. Do your homework to find a reputable retailer who not only provides the types of decorations you are seeking, but are also top quality. A great example is Holiday Lights & Magic, Inc. at They offer one of the largest selections of quality Christmas displays for commercial purposes as competitive prices. Their selection includes such staples as oversized ornaments, giant commercial trees, and LED lights.

Don't Go Overboard

Decorating for Christmas stops being fun or profitable when you go overboard in burdening your team, your time, and your budget. To avoid such headaches, start planning months in advance your budget and what you hope to accomplish. Holiday decorations do not have to be a burden, but can be a fun and profitable experience for your business. The key is to plan ahead to make the most of the opportunity.

The Challenge of Finding the Right Remodeling Contractor

The hardest part about doing a home remodel is not actually the remodeling work itself. Most homeowners would agree that the biggest challenge is getting a contractor who is reliable, competent, and who has a good reputation to do the job. Putting in new cabinets, removing a wall, or changing the tile in a bathroom, is child’s play when compared to finding a good contractor who can do the job well from the beginning to the end.

Unfortunately, there are enough stories out there about contractor disasters to fill up a library. Many of these revolve around contractors who started the job, but never finished it. These contractors may say that they need up to three times the amount of money they originally bid for the job in order to complete it properly.

Of course, even with the best contractor, doing a home renovation will involve stress, expense, and unwanted surprises. Yet, the right contractor can minimize the challenges involved, and increase the success of any job.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Installing Pre-hung Doors

If you’re building or renovating a home, installing your own doors is a great way to save a little money. Many builders and homeowners prefer pre-hung doors because they are convenient and fairly easy to install. Unlike a slab door, a pre-hung door is already attached to the frame. All you need is a rough opening to install it in, a few tools, and a little bit of know-how. Although slab doors are a little less expensive to purchase up-front, pre-hung doors can save you time and effort during the installation process. Following these steps will help ensure that you install your pre-hung doors correctly:

  1. Gather Your Tools
Pre-hung doors can be quite heavy, so you should recruit at least one other person to help you install them. Before you begin, gather up the following tools: tape measure, finish nails, shims, hammer, nail punch, utility knife, circular saw (or jigsaw), level, and screwdrivers. You may not need the circular saw, but it will come in handy if you need to trim your doorjambs. Wood putty is important to have on-hand when you are ready to hide the nail holes in your installed doors.
