When it comes to men, there are no hard and fast rules. Sometimes online dating works out, sometimes it doesn't. You can use your head, follow your heart, or, with one single glance, you might just fall in love at first date.
Somehow I can relate at the last paragraph of this novel entitled "Love at First Date (Better Date than Never)" written by Susan Hatler. Not because I fell inlove at first date but because my husband does. He admittedly tell me that our first personal meeting (because we're dating online!) was a bliss that he can't help but continue the relationship we started on web. Neither did I imagine that we will be able to build a relationship through online and still counting. Now back to book!

I must admit that I am a bookworm, but not a collector. Four years ago, when I was still working at SPi Global (a BPO Publishing Company at Laguna) I saw a Kindle DX held by our supervisor and told us that whatever we do, it's the device which students use to read them. Since then, I told myself that I will buy the same thing so I can also read every books I wanted to without having a massive collection of hardbound or paperback on shelves. Then I learned about Amazon and how I can purchase a kindle for myself. But there's one problem, the budget and the shipping cost plus the tax. I was about to loose hope when I got the news that my cousins from Arizona and Australia will be celebrating their Christmas here at Philippines. So I hurriedly asked Maycee to purchase one for me so I can save some money for the shipping cost. I was so excited when she agreed and told me that by December, I can have my kindle. Yay!

It was mid October when we started choosing which one should I purchase. I carefully read reviews and compare other kindles and which one is super useful to me but not so expensive at all. At first, I jot down all necessary things I wanted with my kindle. 
  1. Inexpensive. All I really wanted is a reading app, nothing more nothing less. Saves battery and gadget life.
  2. Handy that I can bring it anywhere without bringing a huge bag.
  3. Connects with wifi for downloading books.
  4. User-friendly.
I could have chosen a Kindle Fire costs $169 because it has apps already, colored and works like a tablet already. But, it won't diverge me to my reading habits and instead just waste my time logging on facebook. LOL. Plus it's too expensive and I can't afford to buy it at that cost. From reviews, the battery doesn't last long, maybe a day or two the longest. And then there's Kindle Paperwhite costs $119, the newly released addition to e-ink models of kindle. It has a built in light, touch screen, 2 point multi-touch and battery lasts up to 8 weeks long. Still, I don't settle for it because I still need to buy other kindle accessories like case and an adapter. Then, finally, Kindle 5 the remodeled Kindle 4 but much lighter, faster and small. 

Amazon's 6" E Ink Pearl display with optimized font technology, 167 ppi, 16-level gray scale (graphite)
  • Model : Kindle 5 Wi-Fi, 6" Display 
  • Size : 6.5" x 4.5" x 0.34" (165.75 mm x 114.5 mm x 8.7 mm)
  • Color : Graphite (you can also have black color, as graphite is limited only)
  • Storage : On device: 2 GB internal (approximately 1.25 GB available for user content). Holds up to 1,400 books. Free cloud storage for all Amazon content
  • Battery Life : 8 weeks wireless off
  • Price : $69
  • Kindle Accessories included : USB 2.0 charging cable (that's why I add up a power adapter so I can also charge it via sockets and an Amazon Leather case for protection since it doesn't have to have a screen protector)
 This kindle doesn't have a built in light but it's fine with me because I usually read books during daytime and at night, lights are always on so I don't have to worry for that part. The fast turning of pages is what makes this kindle superb from Kindle 4. You can read other buyer's review on the amazon website for further details about the product. I also like the free books I can purchase at the amazon store using wifi and I can even add my personal books on the library via usb transfer. 
  
What's more special with this kindle? Instead of paying for it from my own savings, my husband paid for it and gave it to me as a gift last Christmas 2012! But still thanks to Maycee for purchasing this gadget through Amazon store. :)

Watch out for my post on purchasing books from amazon to your kindle device.
I was browsing through facebook on where I can buy affordable items and rare designs a chic like me must have. Luckily I found Syala Collections and check their available items right away. I like their designs because they don't just buy it somewhere else and re-sell them. They create their own collections and their items are strictly 1 item per design. They offer ladies apparel, bags, couple items and plus size apparels

Shopping online also involve risk because you might encounter scammers but dealing with Syala Collections was really amazing! In order for you to be at ease while shopping with online shops, check customers feedback first. Transact with the owners of the shop directly so you can also place orders efficiently. This is probably why I like shopping with Syala. The owner, Ms. Day Toledo is very accommodating and not just sells her items but also caters customer needs. She's even polite transacting with her customers query, not just the regular customers but also the first timers. Syala Collections also offers promos and freebies on your purchases. Visit their Facebook Page or Syala's Official website and see how organize things are which is also one factor for a shopping haven, a pleasing website to customer's eyes and a great collection waiting for you to grab.

Last 2011, I purchased this two items with FREE shipping promo. Imagine two items, at the price of less than Php600, I am entitled for the FREE shipping code. Cool right? You will never have a hard time placing an order because every details you need is written in the product description, unlike other shops who don't usually put description and you have to ask them first.

So sorry for the quality of the picture. It was just taken using a mobile camera and night scene! :)
I really like the cropped long top because of its pastel color. I was surprised when I received the item because the fabric is so soft and comfortable to wear that I even use it as my sleepwear. Colors doesn't easily fade even if I always washed it on washing machine. It was really worth it at the price of Php290.00. The other one was the couple jersey, in yellow because it was my hubby's favorite color. At first I was hesitant to buy the item because I wasn't sure of the size of hubby but Ms. Day help me dealing with sizes so I decided to buy it. Surprisingly, it fits him and he likes it too! We wore this jersey last New Year and his family were asking where did we purchased them because they haven't see such designs at the mall or on local stores nearby. We still have those items on our wardrobe and it's really worth it buying at Syala Collections. Indeed a must have collection you guys should avail!
Duh, I wish I could have one but unfortunately I can't right now. :) Well, first let me give you an intro about Firmoo. Through blog hopping, I came across about this Firmoo Giveaway from Genzel and visit the site for more information. 

So Firmoo is giving away first pair of glasses for FREE! Yes, it's free and you can also avail their free shipping promo if you're a resident of US (for every $39 or more) and outside US (for $55 or more).

Indulging myself last night at the sight of their glasses, I bookmarked this one! A semi-rimless eyeglasses in pink color.

I was eying for a computer glass but upon purchasing I need to have a prescription first since it is a requirement for them to give me the right glasses for my eyes. Also, I found out that since I am residing outside US territory, I am entitled for a $18.75 shipping fee which is a bit pricey for me to purchase. If you're also like me, a price conscious, you can have your hopes up again by participating in their "Lucky Draw" simply sharing this news to your facebook profile or twitter account.

Mom was eager to buy a shade of red (seriously?) lipstick because she's always bragging that her lipstick wasn't red at all. So one time, as we waited for a cousin to buy some stash in SM Department store, I ask mom to choose one and I'll buy it for her. We tried several lipstick even the recommended "Ever Bilena Magic Lipstick" but still mom wasn't satisfied. Till we came across "Ever Bilena Extreme Shine Lipstick".

Ever Bilena Extreme Shine Lipstick #703 & #711
I on the other hand wants something that smells good and not so bright but not so pale at all. So we tested this two and we love it! Mom got #711 which is in bright red, smells good and pigment. Vibrant color and last long for five hours without eating but you can also reapply if you want. Shiny and affordable for only Php 75.00.

I got the other one, #703, which I really like since I don't have to apply a lip balm first or apply a gloss after. It is shiny already and the scent is so sweet, smells like a watermelon or something that I wanted to eat it. LOLJK. I prefer this over Avon Lipstick Berry Orange. It is also pigmented one but it's smooth finish spice up my lips. A not so pale but not so bright lipstick shade just perfect for a daylight getaway. It doesn't make my lips choppy at all because of it's pigments, leaving a soft and supple lips. Lasts long and creamy texture. Also affordable at only Php75.00 plus it's available locally, on Watsons and leading stores nationwide.
Warning: This is a replica version only. The seller has nothing to do with this review nor am I trying to sell out this version for my readers. Try it on your own risk.

I bought Magical BB Cream (a replica only) and Max Factor Pan Stick from Silvertoesz OnlineShop and was surprised to received my package with extra freebies (a sample of Clinique cream and 2 cracking nail polish in blue and pink hues). I switch to BB Cream and give it a try because I am not satisfied with Ponds Cream anymore. My face isn't oily but pressed powders are not good when applied to my face so ever since, I am really using a cream before applying my usual blush on.

I simply got a BB Cream #2 for Php60.00 not reading any reviews of it as I know that every person have different skin tone and pigmentation so what's good or bad for them, will be unlikely good or bad for me too.

This is my first ever BB Cream so I have nothing to compare but I was really glad I did try it. I still have this now and I haven't emptied out the container. Haha.. Yeah, I know I am really not applying too thick on my face, just to blend out a little before applying blush on then adding a powder so finish the look. So the verdict? It blended beautifully and evenly on my face, covered well (enough for me, but you can always use your usual application, thick or thin, it's really up to you) and hides out blemishes even without a concealer.

 I only dub a small amount of BB cream everytime I use it just enough to even out my face. No greasiness or sticky feeling. It dries out easily and nicely, plus a soft finish on my skin. What I like about it is it's perfect for daylight and people won't notice you're on creams.


I really love the result plus it has an SPF of 30++ and has vitamin E. Great isn't it? For a lesser price compared on other high end BB Creams which doesn't suit well to many skin types, I guess I'll be sticking to this BB Cream for awhile and try out the high end ones after emptying this bottle. 

Side effects after using it: NONE (read warning note before trying) and to my delight my skin becomes soft and not dull. May kinis effect!

Currently, this BB Cream is out of stock already at Silvertoesz OnlineShop but you can try out her branded cosmetics including Clinique, Mac, Nyx and Revlon to name a few. And oh, she's having her CLEARANCE SALE right now! So hurry up and grab some items.
