A BDJ Box for All

I read a blog post about the BDJ Box and immediately subscribed right away. It really looks as though I'm gonna get my money's worth or better yet I paid so much less than the true value of a box full of top notch beauty products. Among the featured brands are Benefit Cosmetics, Calvin Klein Fragrances, L'Oreal Paris, Garnier, Pevonia Botanica, Guerlain, Shiseido, Schwarzkopf, Syoss, and Yves Rocher. For those who haven't heard of the BDJ Box, it's a box containing 5-6 beauty items (specifically hand-picked for your skin and hair needs) delivered right at your doorstep once you subscribe. You can then make reviews of the products and earn points that you can use later on.

I paid P480 for a 1 month prepaid subscription which is renewable monthly. There are prepaid and postpaid subscription plans to choose from. Subscribers can pay through these payment methods:  

BPI, BDO, Metrobank, RCBC, Unionbank, Chinabank, EastWest, UCPB, PNB, GCash, Smart Money, Bancnet, Megalink, LBC, SM Retail Group, Paypal Money

I'm pretty excited to get my box soon. If you want to subscribe or simply check out the other details, please visit BDJ Box.

My Tag Heuer New Link Women's Pink Dial Steel Watch

I received this as a gift on my birthday. I love it that's why I wear it most of the time. It looks perfect on my wrist and the pink dial design is really cute and so feminine. It doesn't look like other Tag Heuer watches that were designed with so much going on, so much frills. This watch is very simple and yet elegant. But nevertheless you can wear it with any outfit, be it casual or formal. This quartz watch is water resistant at two hundred meters so you can wear it even when you're out swimming. You don't have to take it off every so often. It's made from solid steel and has a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. My watch's bezel is unidirectional and the dial has luminescent hands and hour markers. So even if you're in the dark, it's not difficult to see what time it is. The bracelet is also made of steel and the double safety clasp with folding buckle totally keeps the watch in place on my wrist.

Our Red Crab Photos

I almost forgot to post these photos I took when my bestfriend and I ate at Red Crab at the Newport Mall. I can't even remember when we ate there. I know that it's late afternoon that's why we only ate pasta and salad (we eat like horses when we have lunch, hehe). Just thought I'd share them. :)

Earning via Fiverr

I recently signed up with this site called Fiverr. It's a global online marketplace offering tasks and services usually for only $5. Business owners and freelancers can use Fiverr to sell their services while customers in need of services can find and commission that service directly through the site. There are tons of services available on the site that range from funny and weird to business-related services. For $5 someone may be hired to do a custom video makeup tutorial, promote a website, make a logo for a business, or advertise a website on his Facebook and Twitter followers. I posted a "gig" offering my ghost writing services. I hope someone responds soon. This could be a really nice way to earn some bucks.

    Loving The Walking Dead

    I'm a big fan of the series The Walking Dead. Last night's premiere episode for Season 3 on Fox was totally worth the wait (season 2 ended in mid 2012) and gives viewers a glimpse of how exciting this season will be. There are new characters and bigger obstacles and challenges for Rick, Lori, Carl, Glenn, Daryl, Carol, T-Dog, Maggie, Beth, and Hershel. There are definitely a lot of things to look forward to this season. I can't wait for next week's episode. I wonder if Hershel will survive being bitten by a zombie and getting his leg amputated by Rick. I kinda feel irritated with Rick because he shouldn't have brought Hershel to clear out the prison. Oh well, let's just tune in next week and see what happens.

    Papa John's Pizza Discount Coupons

    Since it's examination week once again, I've been busy with my tutoring job, making reviewers etc. It's really quite stressful and frustrating at times. But the fact that it's the kids' semestral break next week gives me a lot of comfort :) I'll have more time to relax and do other things. Good thing my sister bought a Papa John's Pizza brochure full of discount coupons for only P399. I'll be able to use those for a sumptuous meal with my nephew. He loves pizza and pasta and he eats with so much gusto that every meal is enjoyable with him. We'll try all their pizzas (Pepperoni, Garden Special, Simply Cheese, Hawaiian, and Margherita) and pasta (Carbonara, Seafood Carbonara, Meatball Bolognaise, and Diablo Burst). They also have Baked Italian Meatballs, Potato Wedges, Mozzarella Sticks, and Battered Onion Rings as well as Italian Sodas. They have a lot of cool discount deals which you can avail of at all their branches.

    The Face Shop The Smim Special Set

    I cleaned my room yesterday and found some beauty products that I bought but haven't used yet. Hoarding beauty products that I don't really need is one habit that I'm trying to curb. Have to save up some moolah for the coming holiday season :) Anyhow, I found this The Face Shop The Smim Special Set (toner and emulsion) inside my drawer. I haven't figured out yet if I'm gonna use it or give it as a prize in the blog giveaway I'm planning.

    My New Starmobile Engage Tablet

    Finally, I bought myself a tablet yesterday that I can use for random stuff after my netbook gets "tired". I actually bought it for the specific reason of using it to read ebooks. I contemplated on buying a Samsung Galaxy Tab but it's too expensive just to be used as an ebook reader. I wanted something simpler and of course more budget friendly. The Starmobile Engage tablet has a lot of features that makes its price of P5,990 quite worth it. Here are some of them:

     1.)  7.0" Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
     2.)  Capacitive Multi Touch Display
     3.)  WiFi
     4.)  3 MP Camera
     5.)  Multimedia (MP3 Player, Voice Recorder, supports Flash Player)
     6.)  Social Media (Facebook, MSN, Twitter, Skype, Yahoo Messenger, YouTube)
     7.)  Expandable memory up to 32 GB
     8.)  Google Play Store
     9.)  Supports USB Modem
    10.)  Up to 100 hours standby time and 3 hours video time

    MasterChef 2012

    Even though I don't know how to cook I always watch cooking shows like Top Chef, Hell's Kitchen, and shows at the Food Network. I've seen several seasons of Top Chef and Hell's Kitchen but this is the first time I'm watching MasterChef. It's the third season of the hit show hosted by Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich, and Graham Elliot. It's very addicting to watch because of the challenges that the contestants face and their different personalities. Plus, I really like Gordon Ramsay, although I prefer his "evil" temperament on Hell's Kitchen. I guess this season is more interesting because of its first blind contestant Christine Ha (who eventually won). This woman is amazing. Gordon even asked her in one episode if she's really blind because the dish she cooked was both delicious and aesthetically appealing. Last Monday's episode made me cry because Gordon told her that she should stop putting herself down and be more confident (something to that effect). I tell you the drama in this show is better than the local "teleseryes" we have. 

    MasterChef Season 3 is aired every Saturdays and Sundays 1:00 - 3:00 PM, Replays: Mondays 10:00 PM, Wednesdays 5:00 PM at the Lifestyle Network.

    I so love this song by Stevie Nicks...


    I took my love and I took it down
    I climbed a mountain and I turned around

    And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
    'Till the landslide brought me down

    Oh, mirror in the sky
    What is love?
    Can the child within my heart rise above?
    Can I sail thru the changing ocean tides?
    Can I handle the seasons of my life?

    Mmm Mmm...

    Well, I've been afraid of changing
    'Cause I've built my life around you
    But time makes you bolder
    Children get older
    I'm getting older too

    (Guitar solo)

    Well, I've been afraid of changing
    'Cause I, I built my life around you
    But time makes you bolder
    Children get older
    I'm getting older too
    I'm getting older too

    So, take my love, take it down
    Oh climb a mountain and turn around
    If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
    Well the landslide will bring you down, down

    And If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
    Well maybe the landslide will bring it down
    Oh oh, the landslide will bring it down
