Caronia Nail Care

Prepping your nails and hands will help achieve perfect manicured nails.

Before trimming the cuticles, hydrate your nails with oils or soak your hands in water. It softens and helps exfoliate dead skin. Prep the nails with base coat to avoid damaging your nails. Apply two coats of nail polish. Seal the polish with top coat to make sure the nail polish lasts longer.

Caronia Pro Nail Care line will help you to do just that.

iWerkz Folding Bluetooth Keyboard

Ever since I bought an iPad Mini last year, I’ve been on the look out for a portable keyboard. No need chugging along the heavy laptop with me when I travel or work outside.

I didn’t know this particular brand of keyboard existed. I discovered it on Instagram. I immediately asked the person who posted the picture what it was and where he bought it.

iWerkz Folding Bluetooth Keyboard

iWerkz Folding Bluetooth Keyboard is available for purchase on Amazon for less than $30. At the time, the item was on sale so it was definitely a steal. It also comes in other different colors.

Features and specifications:

• Compatible with Bluetooth-Enabled Tablet Devices & Smartphones, including iPad/iPhone including iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
• Protective Case Doubles as a Stand
• Docks Tablet Devices or Smartphones While in Use
• Compatible with Android & iOS Devices
• Folding Design
• 30 Days Standby Time
• 44-Hr Run Time
• Convenient to Carry

Over all thoughts on the keyboard:

It’s sleek, super light and easy to pair by bluetooth. When folded or closed, it’s slightly longer than an external drive. When unfolded or opened, it’s slightly shorter than a desktop keyboard. I don’t have big hands so the size is fine with me. The casing/ cover/ protector, doubles as a tablet or phone stand.

If you are looking for a similar keyboard, I would recommend iWerkz.

The Really Tiny Book Light

What I wanted for my birthday is a clip on book light. There are a few available online without paying an expensive shipping fee. What’s worrying is that it might not be what I was looking for.

My sister is able to sleep early and as we share the same room, I can’t turn on the light without disturbing her.

Tiny Book Light

One day, on a trip to the nearby city’s book store, my sister and I found the book light.

The Really Tiny Book Light is available at Fully Booked store for Php499.00. It clips onto your books so you can read in the dark. It bends to a full 90 degrees angle position.

To use: you press the “Light” switch at the bottom of the clip light to turn on the LED light. You can easily switch on the light. A slight movement among your things can turn on the light which is bad because the battery runs out fast.

The book light is fitted with 3 pieces of AG3 (LR41) batteries and you can buy replacement at your nearest watch repair shops.

It’s really tiny but the light packs a punch. My sister and I was laughing the first time I used it. The light was a lot brighter than my phone screen light. I might as well turn on the room light to read.

If you’re looking for something similar, you now know where to get one. Happy night reading!

Happy New Year!

Been silent on this site for too long.

I’m not sure if I have new content to write that’s related to fashion and beauty because it’s no longer my lifestyle. I don’t want to write about the latest in trends because that’s what they are, only trends. Trends change and I hate how my old posts are becoming irrelevant.

Morning Light Glare

I am in the brink of moving this site to a personal blog like what I originally was as a blogger in 2007. This or shutting down this site for good.

I am still blogging, my little space to write anything. I just won’t be writing on this site as often. I’m on a different site and blogging about a very specific niche. I’m in the process of building up the site in terms of content and social media following.

A Look Back

2013 was a good year in terms of blogging. I can’t say the same for 2014. I have a print out of stuff I want to accomplish in 2014. But, I was setting myself up for a major fail. I think in the middle of the year my situation changed so I have to give way for other things happening.

Moving Forward

I will continue doing something. I think that’s the secret of not losing your mind. LOL! Just do something. Anything.

What’s up 2015? Just turning a year older, no big plans and to live vicariously through someone else’s lives for the mean time.

HAVE A GOOD YEAR EVERYONE!

Picture Collage Maker

Our good friends from Picture Collage Maker app has given me access to their app for use and for review. This is the 3rd time I’ve used this app since I’ve received it. I’ve been meaning to upload a video of me using the app but my video editor is messed up.

10 Things You Don’t Know About WeChat

With the rise of mobile apps in the Philippines, people are often mistaken that all of them are just the same. You think you know it all ….Video Calls. Stickers. Free SMS. You got it wrong. There are many features of WeChat that are not known to many. Here are the 10 things you don’t know about WeChat:

1. You can actually act like a SPY on WeChat. With their “Private Group” function, you can act like James Bond and tell your friend to just join the chat using your 4 digit password before they can get hold of your top secret. Without this password, you can’t join this private Group and they won’t know what’s the juicy secret they’ve been wanting to hear.

2. You can meet a new friend or even a boyfriend. By using “People Nearby”, you will get a chance to meet your next BFF or even your boyfriend to be. It has Tinder like features where it allows you to talk to people that are near your area. Who knows? Your prince charming might be a 100m away from you!

3. Their Stickers are moving and you can even create your own sticker. All the other chat apps uses stickers that are static. With WeChat, they’re moving! Not just that, you can upload your own GIF, upload it on WeChat and have your own set of stickers. You can even make yourself a sticker of your own face and turn them into moving stickers. How cool is that!?

4. You can add up to 100 people on their Group Chats.  While some of the other apps can only carry up to 40, WeChat can hold up to 100 people on the group chat where they can all send Photos, Name Card, use the Walking Talkie function, chat with each other and send animated stickers. Gather your whole high school batch on the group chat so you guys are all up do date with the gimiks , latest chikkas and upcoming reunions! [Read more…]

Fruit Infused Tea

Bored with your usual detox drink of choice? I found this little spin by a Youtuber.

What you will need:

Your choice of detox tea
Lemon & other fruits of your liking
Water (hot or cold)

Mix all ingredients in a big tumbler or water bottle. Choose a water bottle with a big opening so fruit cuts can fit in the bottle.

Hope this will give you ideas on how to up the ante of your detox drink. Happy detox!
