I AM A VOUCHER KIND OF GIRL. ESPECIALLY FOR VALENTINES.

Groupon may have left the country, but I have definitely become a voucher kind of girl. While Groupon made friends with bargain-seeking clients (who mostly stuck around for the one promotion) and made enemies of suppliers who were hung out to dry after massive discounts, there is another voucher scheme going.

If you are feeling the start of Spring, which is only two weeks away, we have a… Continue reading SPRING HAS SPRUNG. OR HAS IT?

Surrounded by soft music, beautiful fragrances and people talking in low whispers as to not to disturb the peace, beats any other office environment hands down. Guvon… Continue reading ASPIRATIONS IN THE SPA WORLD? WHO DO YOU CALL? GUVON ACADEMY.
