PayPerPost Cashout

The whole time I've been a member of PayPerPost, I've only received two tasks. They were easy 50-word posts so I wrote them anyway. I got paid $2.25 per post. I decided to try cashing out my earnings manually because I don't think I'd be able to wait for their $50 cash out and was deducted $2, which totally sucks. 

Anyhow, I don't know if I'd write again for PayPerPost. Probably not, that's why I withdrew my earnings already.

Carmex Winnings

I won cool goodies from Couch Wasabi's Big Belated Birthday Blowout. It was quite unexpected but nevertheless very welcome. I received the 3 Carmex lip balms this afternoon and I'm happy since I'll be able to use them on my dry, chapped lips. I'll surely make a product review once I start using them.

Snoe Beauty Products

I went to SM Sucat yesterday to get some GCash and to bond with my nephew. As we were having merienda, I noticed the new Snoe Beauty Store just across. I didn't plan on buying anything and initially just looked around their merchandise. I like that the store looks so cute and well put together. There are some really interesting stuff there like the Snoe White Vitamin C-rich Calamansi Whitening Detox Clay Mask, Here comes the Sunblock SPF 45 Singkamas Lotion, Hair Heroes Intense Argan Oil, Happy Heels Foot Whitening Therapy Set, and Whipped Body Frosting SPF15 Whitening – Strawberry Smoothie. They have so many hair and body products that I didn't know where to look. 

Snoe Beauty products have high quality ingredients that are affordable. I love the way their products are packaged. They look expensive and classy. I've been wanting to buy false eyelashes for the longest time so when I saw that they had some, I bought one right away. 

I'd definitely come back and buy more stuff at Snoe Beauty. I can't wait!

Another Hallo Hallo Mall Purchase

I've been visiting the Hallo Hallo Mall everyday for a couple of months already and because of that, I've accumulated many points. So I decided to look around and use some of my points. I saw this really beautiful Yellow Knitted Batwing Black Buttons which I bought right away. The best thing about this purchase is the fact that I didn't pay a single cent. Even the shipping was covered. There were even some points left. 

I can't wait for my blouse to arrive. For the meantime, I'll continue visiting Hallo Hallo Mall everyday to pile up those points again.

Catalogue 63 Shopping

I need a new blouse. I've browsed Zalora, Hallo Hallo Mall, Lazada, ebay, Eazy Fashion etc. already and couldn't find "it". Until I saw Catalogue 63. I love how simple yet chic the styles are. Plus, they're affordable too. Aside from clothes, they also sell bags, shoes, jewelry, and swimwear. I'm so looking forward to shopping with Catalogue 63.

They only ship in the Philippines and payment methods are Visa, Mastercard and American Express Credit Cards (via PayPal), PayPal, Bank Deposit (Bank of the Philippine Islands) and GCash.

The blouse I'm dying to buy is the AND Shawn Tee in Magenta. Love it!

Neutrogena Advanced Solutions At Home Microdermabrasion System

I bought this last year because I was so busy with work that even if I wanted to, I couldn't go to a spa. Although I don't use it as much as I should, it's still awesome. I just love this product because as early as the first day of using it I've already seen the results. My skin looks clearer and smoother. After the first week, it seemed as if I was a few years younger than my real age. Then after a few more weeks, some of the lines in my forehead and near my mouth just disappeared. I used to have blackheads on my nose that a facial couldn't remove but they disappeared after a few weeks of using this product. And my pores looked visibly smaller. This microdermabrasion system contains three components: Advanced Solutions Micro Oxide Crystallized Cream (promotes surface cell renewal), Advanced Solutions Soft Foam Sponge Head (distributes the cream evenly on the skin) and Advanced Solutions System Applicator (has two speeds that you can control according to your preference). If you want your skin to glow and look younger, then use this microdermabrasion system.

Passion for Porsche

My sister bought my nephew two toy cars from Petron's Passion for Porsche Promo. They're so cute! Petron customers get the chance to buy exclusive toy cars for every single or accumulated purchase of Petron products (Blaze 100, XCS, Xtra Unleaded, Turbo Diesel and Diesel Max) worth P1,000. The toy cars cost P180 each. My sister bought the Cayman and Panamera models. This promo is until January 31, 2013.

No, Thank You: KFC Mac and Cheese Bites

I didn't want to eat fish that my sister was cooking so I opted to have some food delivered. I wanted to eat a Taco Salad from Wendy's but after the CSR told me that the minimum order should be worth P1,000, I immediately said "no, thank you" and said goodbye. Can you just believe that?! Ridiculous, right? So instead I ordered from KFC (I had Chicken Ala King, Chicken Salad, and KFC Mac and Cheese Bites). This is the first time I had the KFC Mac and Cheese Bites, 5 bite-sized treats with a crunchy outside and a center filled with soft macaroni and creamy cheese. I unfortunately didn't like it. The taste was too strong for me. The mix of flavors was overpowering and it was salty. It's what you call in Tagalog "nakaka umay". I actually got to eat only 1. But that's just my opinion so you guys are free to try it for yourselves. People have different preferences when it comes to taste anyway. :)

Another Zalora Purchase

I love shopping at Zalora because they have tons of beautiful items. I'm such a big accessories addict and I just can't resist their very affordable pieces especially the earrings. I'll probably do my Christmas shopping with them.

Thinking of Getting a SaladBox

The newest craze when it comes to beauty is probably subscribing for a beauty box. I've already signed up and payed subscriptions for BDJ Box and Glamourbox and now I'm thinking of getting myself a SaladBox. I've always loved surprises, so getting a box full of beauty products every month delivered right at your doorstep is totally exciting. I already have my opinions regarding the first two boxes but I'd like to keep it first to myself and avail of the SaladBox and then compare the three.

Every SaladBox subscriber gets four or more samples of beauty products. They can then review the products and refer friends so as to earn Salad Leaves which they can then use to buy full-size products. SaladBox has five plans:

1.) Monthly Recurring - this costs P500 and renews itself automatically every month.
2.) Six Months Prepaid - pay a one-time payment of P2,700.
3.) One Year Prepaid - the one-time payment is P5,000 (the 11th and 12th boxes are free).
4.) SaladBox Lite - subscribe for just a month for P500.
5.) SaladBox Starter - pay P1,000 for two months.

The brands that you may get in your SaladBox are BC Fragrance, Black Beauty, Camaru Naturals, Hotshop, Klair's, Natura, Sakura, Skinmiso, Virginia Olsen Minerals, and Wish Trend. For more information, please visit SaladBox and while your there, sign up and subscribe.

My First Glamourbox

I finally received my Glamourbox this afternoon after nearly a month of waiting. I payed for the monthly subscription so I have the option to cancel it any time. I haven't decided yet if I'll renew my subscription. There's plenty of time to think about that in time for the December box. Anyhow, back to the box. The pink and white packaging is cute and girly and I just love what's inside. I know I'll be able to use most of the items. Though I'm not familiar with some of the brands, I'm more than willing to try them.

Here's what's inside the box:

1.) Eye of Horus Mascara
2.) Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 Night Cream
3.) Yves Rocher Slimming Action Concentrate
4.) Ofra Cosmetics Lipstick Palette
5.) Bulgari Omnia Amethyste
6.) Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua


Bulgari Man

A Poem About Faith

 A Spiritual Journey
by Wind Walker
Across from the mountains,
A little house sits in the tree's,
I'm lost in tranquility,
As my soul tries to breath.

White clouds moving slowly,
The breeze a calm still,
I'm caught in the moment,
As my heart starts to heal.

A piece of me,
In the startling blue sky,
As I spread my wings,
My soul starts to fly.

I fly to unknown places,
Where pain and hurt once dwelled,
As the memories flow pass me,
My eyes start to swell.

Tear drops drip slowly,
Down my cheeks,
The wind wipes them dry,
And gives me some peace.

Soaring so free,
Over water and land,
My Spirit Guide gently,
Takes me by my hand.

He shows me what was,
And what's meant to be,
And why my life,
Is so important it seems.

A long soar,
Like the eagle high,
I bow my head,
And I start to cry.

Back on the land,
Across from the tree's,
I began to realize,
What healing means.

It mean's not to forget,
Let the past flow,
Of all the horrors,
One soul had to go.

To take the strengths,
And apply them to life,
Is a valuable lesson,
I've learnt this flight.

Alone in the sunset,
I watch it go down,
When I finally realize,
What peace I have found.

Top 100 Pinoy Blogs

I blog mainly to satisfy my love for writing. It's also a means of reaching out to others and sharing whatever thoughts I have on certain things. No matter how trivial they are. So it came as a pleasant surprise to be included in the list of the top 100 Pinoy Blogs for October in the blog 100 Pinoy Blogs That Matter. It really was totally unexpected.

100 Pinoy Blogs that Matter is a monthly ranking of the most-read Filipino blogs. The rankings are based solely on web traffic via the Alexa traffic data. My blog is ranked number 75. I hope I'll be able to maintain my ranking if not improve it. This wouldn't have been possible if not for all the people who visit my blog. Thanks everyone!

Papa John's Pizza Dining Experience

My family and I took advantage of the long weekend to bond by having a hearty lunch at Papa John's Pizza's BF Paranaque branch. It's my first time to eat at Papa John's and I must say that I really like the food and their cozy ambiance. Since it was a holiday, there were only a few diners so we were able to enjoy our meal more (I hate crowded places).

There are a lot of yummy food to choose from in their menu (pizza, pasta, salads, soup, side items, desserts). We ordered Hawaiian Pizza, Carbonara, Meatball Bolognaise, and Caesar Salad. We had a discount coupon so we were able to chop off P500 from our bill. Isn't that amazing?! I'm definitely coming back for more of their mouth watering dishes.

Cupcakes at Brownies Unlimited

Pardon my ignorance but I didn't know that Brownies Unlimited sold cupcakes. That's why when I passed by one of their kiosks the other day, I just had to buy. The cupcakes were delicious but I will always be loyal to their assorted brownies. Aside from that, they're also cute so I had to take a picture.

First Time Shopping at Romwe

For winning the top commenter for October prize in the blog You Got No Gee, I got myself a free $20 coupon code at Romwe. I found a couple of really nice earrings and bracelets but bought only two items. I didn't buy anything expensive because I want to see first if they ship items fast. Sort of testing the waters. Here are the pretty things I bought:
Fan Shape Pendant Earrings ($12.99)

Multiple Metal Charm Bracelet ($14.99)

Cha Dao Tea Place Experience

I'm not really a fan of milk teas but I just had to try the new Cha Dao Tea Place at SM Sucat. I had the Chocolate Classic Milk Tea with Coffee Jelly sinkers while my sister had the Matcha Milk Tea with Egg Pudding. I didn't like the drink at first but the taste grew on me the more I took a sip and I liked it really cold. I would definitely try their other flavors again if given the chance.
