Me and My Nail Polishes

I'm such a nail junkie. Every week I have my nails done either in the salon or by my favorite home service "manikurista". It's such a stress reliever and one of my life's simple pleasures. I recently had a manicure at the Fab Salon at Newport Mall (Resorts World Manila) which cost  me P200. Good thing I like the result since the home service only costs me P60. The salon looked nice and clean and I was the only customer which suited me just fine since I don't like crowded salons. 





I have a couple of new nail polishes that I can't wait to try namely Revlon Top Speed (Peachy), Opi Nail Lacquer, Nyx Girls (Nude Peach), Nyx Girls (Poppy) and Nyx Girls (Florida Orange).

My New Favorite TV Series

I'm such a couch potato and this shows with how much I watch TV. Although I only turn it on at night, I just couldn't bare a night of not watching any of my favorite TV shows (including teleseryes). Below's a list of my new favorite TV series which honestly I can't get enough of:

1.) Game of Thrones - I thought at first I wouldn't be able to enjoy this series because it's set in medieval times and I haven't heard of the book but as I continued watching each episode, it just grew on me. It's very well written, well acted and the plot thickens as the series progresses. I'm through watching 2 seasons of Game of Thrones and can't wait for the 3rd season which is set to start next year. I'm even thinking of buying the books so that I'll know what happens to the very interesting characters. This is highly recommended (as evidenced by the numerous awards it has already received). I simply love it.

2.) Revenge - If you love Filipino drama series, you'll probably love Revenge. It's very dramatic and the characters are all interesting. The story has a lot of twists. I love Emily, the lead character, played by Emily VanCamp. She is both beautiful and strong. The season ender is so exciting that I can't wait for the 2nd season which is set to start on September.

3.)  Person of Interest - this series is about a former CIA agent recruited by a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes in New York City. They use a machine which determines the person who is in danger and follow him around to help him and stop the crime from happening. It stars Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson. I watch this series because of Jim Caviezel, who after all these years is still as hunky as ever.

4.) Once Upon a Time - this is a fantasy drama series which puts a different take on beloved children's fairy tales like Snow White, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and a lot more. It's a very intriguing series that makes each episode highly anticipated. It's a modernized version of the fairy tales that we grew up with. It's already in its 2nd season.

Stronger by Kelly Clarkson

I love Kelly Clarkson. I think she's one of the most talented artists in the music industry today. Ever since I saw her in American Idol, I've been a fan. I bought her CD Breakaway a few years ago, which until now I listen to, and know the lyrics to most of her songs. She has a new song which is like an anthem for me and whenever I listen to it, I'm reminded that there's always hope after a failed relationship and that you're stronger than what you think. You just got to believe.

Stronger

You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone
You know I dream in color
And do the things I want

You think you've got the best of me
Think you've had enough the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I'd come running back
Baby, you don't know me, 'cause you're dead wrong

Chorus:
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes you fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

Bridge:
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/k/kelly_clarkson/stronger.html ]
You heard that I was starting over with someone new
They told you I was moving on, over you
You didn't think that I'd come back
I'd come back swinging
You tried to break me, but you see

Chorus:
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes you fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

Bridge:
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

Thanks to you I got a new thing started
Thanks to you I'm not the broken-hearted
Thanks to you I'm finally thinking 'bout me
You know in the end the day you left is just my beginning
In the end

[Repeat chorus]
[Repeat bridge x2]

I'm not alone

EasyHits4U For Me

As much as I want to, I don't have much time updating my blog and promoting it so as to drive traffic to it. That's why I use EasyHits4U. This site is a 1:1 traffic exchange system which helps bloggers promote their sites and referral links from other programs. For each site you visit using their system you'll receive one visitor back to your website or blog. To do that just click on the "Start Surfing" button. It's very easy to sign up in EasyHits4U and it's absolutely free. They have a referral program which lets you receive 10% of hits earned by people you've referred and 5% of hits earned by people whom your referrals referred.

Another thing I love about them is that you can earn cash while you're surfing sites. For every 1,000 sites you view you'll get $0.30. The minimum payout is $3 which I think is easy to reach if you're an active surfer like me. So it's like killing two birds with one stone. You earn cash by surfing and at the same time you get traffic to your website also by surfing. They pay via Paypal and Payza and payouts are done within 5-7 business days. I already cashed out several times I just keep forgetting to take pictures of my Paypal payments. One reminder though. They don't accept blogs with Google Adsense.

Rosetta: The Business of Translation

There are a number of translation companies around the world specializing in translation service but Rosetta Translation is the first one that comes to my mind when it comes to document translation, interpreting, and transcription services. This translation agency has been around since 2005 and has been continuously growing ever since and is now ISO certified. Thanks to its high quality work, competitive rates, and very efficient group of translators, proofreaders, and editors. The company's headquarters is in London but it also has offices in Shanghai, Paris, New York and Luxembourg.

Rosetta Translation Agency values its clients that is why it has many satisfied clients all over the world. They can translate whatever language you want translated (a total of 150 languages) and they specialize in legal, financial, technical, and medical translation. They can even translate Braille. But translation is not the only thing they do. They're also into interpreting services such as court, consecutive, telephone, and sign language interpreting among others. Clients also hire them when it comes to transcription services. An audio file is transcribed by a highly qualified transcriber and then checked for accuracy by a second transcriber.

There will always be clients who will have doubts as to the "correctness" of the documents that Rosetta translates. So to be sure, document translations can be certified and notarised. You can really be sure that you're getting your money's worth. Rosetta Translation Agency's rates start from GBP 30 plus VAT. If you want to get their services, it's easy to get in touch with them and get a free quote in the process. 

I'm writing this post on behalf of Rosetta Translation.
