Shopping at Plumpytude

Two weeks ago I decided to buy a new cellphone and with that I wanted a new cellphone pouch as well. I browsed Facebook for online shops and saw Plumpytude. This is the first time I bought items from them and I think it won't be the last. They have really cute items that a "kikay" would love. I originally wanted to buy just the Sweet Fashion Double Pocket Yellow/Blue Pouch which was P175 but they have a minimum purchase policy so I had to buy another item. So I again browsed the shop and saw this cute England Flag Necklace which I bought for a mere P120. The shipping fee within Metro Manila is P60 so I paid a total of only P355. I love my purchases and I'm sure you will too if you see Plumpytude's  wide selection of necklaces, bangles, bracelets, earrings, rings, wallets, bags etc.

My New Samsung Galaxy S Duos

I've been saving up for a new phone for quite a while and finally bought one last week. I don't want those too fancy ones since they're too expensive. A phone that has all the features I need at a really great price is what I want. Good thing Samsung has this ongoing Great Mobile Sale from March 8 to April 14, 2013 where you can enjoy great discounts and Galaxy bundles of their great mobile products. This summer sale is available in mobile and gadget stores including SM Appliance. Anyhow, I bought a Samsung Galaxy S Duos for P9,490 (originally priced at P9,990) at e Phone Store.

Cute Earrings at Aksesoriz

Since I've been working so hard this past year, I decided to reward myself by buying a Samsung cellphone. I have actually planned to buy one for a very long time already but only had the chance the other day because I was saving for it. I'm gonna blog about my new phone in another post :) Meanwhile, after buying the phone I strolled in the mall and saw this small accessories shop called Aksesoriz. All those who follow my blog know how crazy I am about earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. I was so excited to see all the assorted earrings they have which they sell for only P20. Imagine that! Their bib necklaces are only P199 which you can buy online for P350. They also have headbands, wigs, and other hair accessories. I'm so happy to have found this store and from now on I'll  check their items first before I buy from other shops.

Hot Summer Fun With Firmoo

Summer is here again and what better way to spend it than to go to the beach, get a tan and swim to your heart's delight. Make sure you have everything you need before hitting the beach like lots of sunblock lotion and fashionable swimwear that will surely get you second glances. Of course a fun day under the sun wouldn't be complete without a sexy pair of sunglasses. Firmoo is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. It will give luxury branded sunnies a run for their money. Its high quality and stylish designs make it a brand of choice of more and more shoppers. Adding to that is their affordable price.   

I have a couple of Firmoo sunglasses but my favorite is the round Firmoo wraparound sunglasses. I love its modern design and how chic and stylish I look whenever I'm wearing it. Suffice it to say that it can be worn anywhere, not just on the beach. It's also quite light and very comfortable to wear. Since Firmoo has a wide selection of prescription sunglasses and prescription eye glasses, customers can choose the design that will fit their taste and personalities. Another reason to buy from Firmoo is their fast shipping and worldwide delivery.

All the photos above are from Firmoo+, the world's no. 1 eyewear styling community which focuses on the styling of eyewear and clothes, accessories, etc. I welcome all fashionistas to join in! Furthermore, Firmoo is inviting bloggers to review their products for free, go to this link page  to apply for Firmoo free eyewear free trial.

Global Test Market Redemption

I finally reached 1,000 market points the other day at Global Test Market. It kinda took a while to reach that but I'm happy I did. It's additional $50 in my Paypal account. This is actually just my second time to redeem from them. Those who doubt if they are a legitimate survey site, rest assured that they are. The downside is that their processing time for payments is long and usually takes 4-6 weeks for US and 6-8 weeks for other countries. Which means that I'll receive my cheque two months from now.

Global Test Market is a global consumer research panel that was founded in 1999 by Global Market Insite, Inc. (GMI). GMI conducts market research to more than 1400 companies in over 60 countries. Their survey studies include: Movies, Restaurants, Automobiles, Consumer products, Current events, and others. They have been accredited by the Better Business Bureau since 2004. You have to complete your profile so that you'll be matched with surveys that match you. If along the way you get screened out, they'll reward you with 5 market points. You're usually rewarded 30 market points for each completed survey but there are instances when you'll be rewarded as much as 60 market points. It all depends on the length of the survey, how long it will take to complete it, and how difficult it is to finish it. 

Although reaching the minimum payout of $50 (1,000 market points) takes a long time, I'll still continue taking surveys. In my experience, among all the survey sites that I'm a member of, Global Test Market is the best and the one which gives the most amount of surveys. There are times when I get 3 surveys in a week. You just have to be patient.

My March BDJ Box

I'm happy to receive my March BDJ Box this afternoon. I love L'Oreal that's why I'm ecstatic about this box because all the items are from this brand and I know how effective and expensive they are. I'm looking forward to using all of them. But I'm most excited about the Color Riche Les Nail Art because I'm such a nail junkie and I haven't tried putting nail stickers. Plus, the gold color of the stickers is so glamorous and chic. As usual, the box's packaging is cute and very enticing. To those who haven't subscribed to their April box yet, better do so because they're fast running out. Paying P480 for all these wonderful products is really worth it. I computed the prices of everything and it's certainly more than P480. 

Fall Repair Hair Shampoo, 180 ml. (Php110) and Fall Repair Hair Conditioner, 180 ml. (Php119)
UV PERFECT Longlasting UV Protector, 30 ml (Php545)
Shine Caresse, 6 ml (Php 595)
UV Perfect BB Max, 30 ml (Php 595) and Youth Code Pre-Essence (Php 1495)
Color Riche Les Nail Art (Php 395)

Dinner via City Delivery

Last night I ordered a Mighty AJ's Beef Burger and Country Fries with Chili con carne and Melted Cheese from Icebergs courtesy of City Delivery. This is only the second time I ordered from City Delivery because their minimum delivery used to be P500. I find that too steep and I think many will agree with me on this. But since they changed it to P300, I'll definitely order more often now. I'm actually looking forward to trying their wide selection of restaurants. I'm tired of ordering from the usual fast food chains, and eating food from well known restaurants in the city right at the comforts of my home is certainly a welcome thought.

For those who don't know what City Delivery is, it's a comprehensive delivery service provider that brings customers their favorite restaurant food. If you're not in a hurry to eat, you can probably stand waiting for 1 hour and 30 minutes for your food to be delivered. It's not advisable to order from them if you're too hungry. Anyhow, City Delivery caters to most major areas within Metro Manila. If you choose a restaurant that's not in your area or city, you'll be charged with a higher minimum fee.

You can order in several ways. You may call their delivery hotline 87878, order online at, order via SMS (09176387878 or 09255587878), and order via their iPhone app which can be downloaded for free from the App Store.

Romwe Discount Coupon

Yesterday, my friend gave me a $20 discount coupon at Romwe. I was so thankful since I'll be able to buy some nice accessories again. For those who have no idea what Romwe is, it's an online shop selling stylish apparel, accessories, jewelry etc. I bought the Black Pearls Pendant PU Bracelet for $14.99. I'm hoping that shipping won't take that long.
