Want to save money when shopping online? SEARS is here!

Clever shoppers already know that when shopping through the web (e-commerce), it just takes a bit of that extra push of motivation and research to beat the sticker price on almost any item. Retailers make the experience a labyrinth of discounts, promo codes and rewards cards — most people end up getting discouraged and paying the full price. But with Sears, you are fully assured that every click on a Sears coupon is worth every peso you could save.

Throughout its history, Sears has committed itself to quality private- label brands. For Sears, its brands are more than just the names of product lines. They are symbols of the company. Sears stakes its reputation on the strength of its brands. Products must meet the most rigorous standards of quality and safety before they earn the right to bear such names as DieHard, Kenmore, and Craftsman.

Over the years, many popular Sears brands have come and gone, leaving behind them proud legacies of many satisfied customers and significant cultural impact. Brands such as J.C. Higgins sporting goods, David Bradley

farm implements, Harmony House furniture, Coldspot appliances, Silvertone guitars and many others have all carved their niches in history. Other brands have survived the test of time at Sears. In 2002, both Kenmore and Craftsman celebrated their 75th anniversaries, and DieHard celebrated its 35th anniversary—and all did so with a series of new products plus reputations that outpace all of their competitors’.

All Sears’ brands past and present have interesting stories behind their products, their staff, the origins of their names, and more.

NORDSTROM, now open to Philippine residents!

A relentless drive to exceed expectations. Nordstrom has worked to deliver the best possible shopping experience, helping customers possess style—not just buy fashion.

Nordstrom, Inc. is a leading fashion specialty retailer based in the United States. Founded in 1901 as a shoe store in Seattle, today Nordstrom operates in 36 states with 117 full-line stores in the United States and one in Canada, 155 Nordstrom Rack locations, two Jeffrey boutiques and one clearance store. The brand also serves customers online in 96 countries through Nordstrom.com. Our e-commerce site Nordstromrack.com, which operates in partnership with their private sale site HauteLook, gives customers access to off-price fashion at considerable savings. Currently, their nordstromrack.com and HauteLook sites serve customers in Canada and Australia. The brand recently began serving customers through Trunk Club, a personalized styling service.

Since 1901, Nordstrom has been guided by its founder’s philosophy: offer the best customer experience possible. The brand offers a large selection of quality fashion apparel, shoes and accessories for men, women and children.

Being a strong contender in the e-commerce and retail industry for more than 100 years (and counting), everyone would then agree if the brand claims itself as the “unerring eye for what’s next in fashion”.  Nordstrom believes that fashion is a business of optimism, and in that spirit they continue to grow and evolve. Free shipping and free returns, mobile shopping and exciting new retail partnerships offer them continued opportunities to serve more customers in more ways with a fresh, relevant shopping experience and inspiring style. Fashion changes. Shopping changes. Their commitment to happy customers doesn’t.

They are proud to announce that residents of the Philippines can now shop at Nordstrom.com and have their purchases delivered to their doorsteps, which will be charged with a shipping cost to be added on top of their billing. But worry not because Photius is here to provide you with great discounts, deals and coupon codes which you can use for every transaction you make with Nordstrom.

Typhoon Haiyan gave birth to a backpack

franzlopez:

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Sunday, February 16, 2014 marked the first one hundred days since the deadliest typhoon in the country struck the southern region.

Typhoon Yolanda (International codename Haiyan) ripped through Visayas on Nov. 8 last year packed with massive winds up to 146MPH resulting to a 20-foot rise in seawaters causing a storm surge and leaving 6,201 dead.

image

I myself, have been witness to the wrath of the super typhoon as the onslaught happened. The chills in my bones remain whenever I recall the days when I was out on the field covering from the moment it struck until the days after. 

TYPHOON YOLANDA RELIEF

4 months after the calamity, various forms of outpouring assistance from international organisations have been given in the typhoon-affected areas.

HERSCHEL SUPPLY CO.

Herschel Supply Co. a Canadian brand, borne out of passion and travel has patrimony in manufacturing the finest high quality backpacks, bags, travel goods, and accessories. 

But more than satisfying patrons, they are also bent on cultivating a responsible and conscious mindset among its community as a means of giving back.

They came up with a bag that’ll help raise funds for victims. Designed from traditional material, it bears the Philippine flag’s colors. Herschel promises to donate 100% of the sale price to Typhoon Haiyan Relief.

Magpakalalaki ka naman.

Kadalasan ito ang pinakamadalas nating sabihin sa mga kaibigan nating lalaki na namomroblema. Hindi natin alam na minsan ito na din ang dahilan kung bakit napanghihinaan sila ng loob.

Simula palang ng pinanganak palang ang ating tatay, tito o kuya, nakaugalian na nating pakita na dapat nilang patunayan na lalaki nga sila. kung hindi man. sasabihan lang natin sila ng “bading”, “mahina”, “lampa”, “malambot”. Simula pagkabata, uso na natin silang sabihan na “sabihin mo nga ‘Lalaki ako’”, na hindi natin namamalayan na hinahayaan natin ang mga bata na mag isip pantungkol sa kanilang kasarian.

Kadalasan din, ginagaya lang din nila kung ano ang nakikita nila sa mga kaibigan nila. Kaya kadalasan ng mga tatanungin mong lalaki ay ang sagot lang ay “okay lang”. “wala namang problema”. “wala to”. Dahil nakikita lang din nila sa iba na itinatago lang nila ang mga problema nila sa isang sulok at papakita nila na normal lang ang lahat. Ganun na kasi ang nakikita nila eh.

"Iyakin". Ito din ang term na ayaw mong itawag sayo. Dahil simula dito bibigyan ka ng asar o ng biro na dadalhin mo hanggang matapos ka ng elementarya. Pero kung tutuusin, ito ang paraan ng isang bata para mailabas nila ang kanilang sama ng loob. Dahil sa peer pressure, nagagawa nilang kimkimin nalang ang lungkot o galit para lang hindi sila pagtumpulan ng tukso. Makakasanayan nila ito hanggang sa pagbibinata na nilang hindi na nila inilalabas ang mga ganitong saloobin. Madalas mananahimik nalang sila at magiging abala sa ibang bagay. Kadalasan sa ibang bata, nadidivert nila unconsiously ang galit o sama ng loob na ito sa pambubully o sa pag gawa ng ibang bagay. Dahil wala nang ibang paraan para mailabas ang sama ng loob nila.

As much as we want to man up and be tough, we also want to have the affection of a friend like some girls have. It’s the truth. Aminin mo (kung lalake ka), kadalasan ang pinakamalapit mong kaibigan ay naituturing mo na ring sobrang dikit na kapatid. Dahil sa nabuo na ang tiwala mo sa kanila at kadalasan sila lang at sila lang din ang napapagsabihan mo ng problema. Hanggang sa tawagan na kayo ng “bromance”. Dahil ang pagkakaibigan nyo ang nagiging masyado ng close sa mata ng ibang tao. Siguro nga ay yun ang kinaiba natin sa mga babae. Mas pipiliin natin magbuhos ng problema sa isang tao o sa isang grupo ng kaibigan na pinagkakatiwalaan mo sa sobrang tagal na panahon kaysa sa mga taong nakakasama mo for a short period of time pero mawawala din agad agad in the end.

What I wanted to say way. You never can tell a man how to be a man himself just by doing this or that. We guys cannot be “tough” all the times and think that problems can easily be handled by our minds. We do need emotional security and we do need people to be with us whenever things go rough. Hindi man kami yung tipo na magyayakapan once in a while o magbebeso o magoovernight para makipagkwentuhan lang buong gabi at manood ng movies, pero kami ay naghahanap lang din ng kalinga ng kaibigan na masasabi mong masasandalan mo pag kailangan mo. Na hindi mo kailangan na pagtaguan ng kahit ano at napaglalabasan mo ng sama ng loob.

Si Dolce ay ang kaunaunahang pinoy na astronaut na ipinadala sa buwan. Sa kanyang paglalakbay ay naisipan nyang timplahin at inumin and dala dala nyang kape mula sa earth. Pero dahil sa hindi inaasahang pagkakataon ay nabasag ang salamin ng kanyang space suit dahil sa usok na galing sa tinimpla niyang kape at naging dahilan ng kanyang pagkamatay. Ngunit bago siya mawala eh nabigkas niya ang salitang “Hmmm…Nangigibabaw”.
