Car maintenance: women be aware!!

I recently was a victim of a gender discrimination crime. That’s right, gender discrimination I say. I honest to god believe that most women, at least %80, do not know a thing about car repair or how to keep up a car, and they get taken advantage of by mechanics all over the world! I’m talking beyond oil changes and putting gas in the car, more like when it’s time to buy new tires, or the difference between a good thump and bad thump noise. My parents believed in taking their car to get regular maintenance by an official dealership service center. I watched my dad take our cars in every once in a while for checkups, oil change, batteries and etc. So, when I grew up and got a car I followed the same school of thought, yes it costs more than your average joe car shop but at least I know they’re not using crap pieces on my car. This is how I became a victim………I love my car, a beautiful Volkswagen, 6 …

Mmmmm…cashmere!!!!

  Today I walked into cashmere heaven… Canada are you ready….Banana Republic is having a cashmere sale. Beautiful vee neck sweaters for both men and women only for $98 and infinity scarves for $48. How awesome is that? I got myself a nice lavender sweater and a pretty pink scarf! Merry Christmas to me!!!! I love these types of promos. Limited time, limited quantities and crazy shoppers. Awesome mixture! One thing I do enjoy about the holiday shopping season is the great deals retail companies have. Well, not all of them but most retailers go all out to bring in every passerby inside their store. Specially this year everyone is on over drive. So, don’t forget my discount hunting friends, sign up for your favorite brands e-letters. You wont regret it. If you are one of those people who hates getting spam mail in to your inbox do what I do, open a shopping email account. Every time you want to sign up for a e-letter just use that email and save yourself from having …

Love the Discounts!

I’m not sure why people are still talking about the recession and using lines  like “in these tough times”, I work in a retail store and I see no tough times, i see lots of demanding people who want to get more for their buck but oh boy oh boy, they have no problem dropping a few bills for a pair of pants, t-shirts and a sweater given the perk of having their discount coupons!!!! I for one love discounts and promotions and secret shopping events. There’s nothing better than knowing that I paid %40 less than other people for my cashmere sweater, or that I remembered that there was a %20 discount coupon in LouLou for a store that I want to shop at. One of the things I have learned by working in retail is, always make friends with the staff or the managers, it pays off! I’m not saying like anything sketchy is going on, but lets say they might give you an extra coupon or let you know when new items …
