#HaulinLikeAVillain : E-books in Kobo App

I’m still on a book review high from last month and found a couple more of books to read and is on preview in Kobo app.

Who here uses Kobo? It’s an e-book store and the app let’s you earn badges whenever you reach certain level of book reading. The badges are a great feature. For someone who doesn’t so much as read books, this is a fun way to get them to read and read some more.

What I bought and currently reading

HaulinLikeAVillain

Of Neptune

I definitely must have the final book of the Syrena series. I couldn’t find a copy of it on scribd.com/. And I’m finally done with it. I’m now able to check my bucket list for this year which is to read a book series.

I think vampires and werewolves fiction is overrated. Mermaids are going to be invading the movie screens pretty soon. I hear someone’s making a movie of the books. Actors in mermaid costumes should be fun to see. LOL!

Rebels: City of Indra

There’s a reason why I prefer getting an e-book version. Books that might not be that good or just not worth adding in the book shelf. Well, in my personal book shelf that is.

I’m still reading the Rebels book and everyone know it’s by the Jenner sisters, Kendall & Kylie. Well, I’m sure they didn’t write the book. Simon and Schuster employed a ghost writer to build the book but it’s initially Kendall & Kylie’s idea what the book is going to be about, where the story will lead to and all that. The writers, Elizabeth Killmond-Roman & Maya Sloan, were given credit.

I’m still a few chapters in the book so I can’t really say much about it. The intro is quite long actually like they were expecting the book to be adapted into a movie. So, that’s what I can say about it so far.

The Story of Us

I heard about it from one of a Youtuber, book reviewer. I don’t know anything much about it except it’s a fiction, adult, romance book. And, I think it’s a short book by the author. I don’t want to say what’s already being said in the summary. Just search for the book to find out. I’m pretty impressed by the book cover. It’s one of those images you want to reblog on Tumblr or pin on Pinterest.

What books are you currently reading? Tweet me @_audreyisms because I love a good book recommendation.

Thank you for reading and come back often!

#HaulinLikeAVillain : Business Card Holder

This is actually not a haul at MOO.com website but is part of a haul I’m focusing throughout BER months. I might own this hashtag for any haul post I’ll be sharing in my blog so it’s easier to track in social media. Feel free to share your haul and in using the hashtag.

Cheap Business Card Holder

I was never in the market for a business card holder. I hardly use my business cards and had it for a long while that the information on it needs updating.

I bought the business card case from MOO.com because I received a coupon gift from Klout.com and I thought I’m not ready to purchase things that’s going to arrive 30 days or more in the mail.

With the Klout.com coupon code, I only paid about £0.50 for the card holder. It’s the cheapest find on the site and I didn’t want my coupon to go to waste.

It’s an Acrylic Business Card Holder in fuschia that is for £6.11. The case has slide-in compartment on both sides. One side is for your personal card and the other side is where you can keep cards you collect. It’s very handy when you go to an event, I think.

What’s sad about my card case is that it came in cracked on one side. They should have wrapped the case in bubble wrap since it’s made of acrylic. Or, did they send me a cracked case because I only paid fifty cents to have them? Tsk tsk tsk.. LOL!

Here’s to my purchased feature in the BER Months 2014. If you are in the look out for a business card holder, that’s cheap, really good quality and colour, check out the MOO.com.

STABILO Fineliner Pens

This post is an ode to my love for pens and notebooks. Well, don’t get me started on notebooks. This post is about the colourful STABILO Point 88 Fineliner pens.

STABILO Fineliner Pens

The set contains 10 different coloured pens with the tip that goes as fine as 0.4mm. The pens are for fine writing, drawing and sketching. It is ideal for working with rulers and stencils. STABILO brand sells coloured pens in 25 colours. The pens are sold individually and as sets in various colour combination. I bought this set at Popular Bookstore in Singapore for S$11.75. You can buy the same set at your nearest National Bookstore in the Philippines.

I no longer write in regular pens. If you flip through the pages of my Starbucks planner, you’ll see how colourful it is. This definitely makes writing on paper so much fun. Writing on paper will never go out of style. Thanks to STABILO.

What are your favourite pens? Let me know in the comments below. I’ll probably look it up and buy some myself. LOL! Thanks for reading!

Toys For The Big Girls Wish List

Nope! Not that kind of toys please!

The best epilator according to reviews found online is by Braun. First on the wish list is the Braun SE7681 Silk-épil 7 Wet and Dry Epilator in white that is now sold on Amazon for $104.99. I know it’s going to hurt in the first few uses but the long-term results is worth the pain.

Braun Best Epilator

I’ve wanted a Kitchenaid for the longest time now. I’m not the best baker for a newbie level but Kitchenaid will definitely motivate me to bake some more. Practice makes perfect! And this machine will help making dough for breads very easily. I am not sure if Youtuber Zoella has this exact colour but it’s where I got the colour inspiration from.

Kitchenaid Mixer in Pistachio

I’m not sure if the Nutribullet machine is easy to clean and manage. My concern with my really inexpensive blender is the many parts I need to clean up after making a smoothie. My other really cheap blender doesn’t blend well, too noisy and leaves lumps of fruits and ice. If the Nutribullet Pro 900 Series won’t do all the points I just mentioned, then I want it in the kitchen. A Vitamix is just too expensive!  [Read more...]

Affordable iPad Mini Protective Case From Promate

Looking for affordable iPad Mini protective case?

Head down to your nearest Silicon Valley Philippines store. Everything you need in your digital life they have it.

I only have a few minutes to shop at Limketkai Mall before heading out to the pier. I’ve had my iPad for two weeks without any protective cover in all sides. I remember KitKai mall with stores that sell inexpensive gadget accessories.

Affordable iPad Mini Protective Case

Silicon Valley PH sells Promate Premium Ultra-Slim Case for only PHP1,095.00.

It’s an ultra slim book style case for iPad mini, with easy grip feature, easy access to all of the iPad mini ports and buttons, fold out stand feature for high-level typing or angled viewing options. It has smart sleep and wake up capability and velvet interiors.

With the affordable protective case, the iPad mini now looks like your normal journal.

What I originally wanted was a protective case with a built-in bluetooth keyboard. But, I don’t think that’s already available in Philippines online shops or stores near me. I will post an update when I find or buy one.

What do you think of the red colour? I would have preferred pink or mint but the color they carry are only in black or red.

New Kicks On The Block

New Balance Skechers

I’ve never owned bright shoes like this, New Balance and Skechers. My Nike running shoes are falling apart and these two shoes were on sale so might as well get it. These shoes are meant to motivate me to go out and run or exercise more. Fingers cross!

I like the support of the Skechers shoes although I still think the shoes is for kids. It feels so comfortable compared to my Nike shoes. The New Balance shoes has a a spike attachment which is great for trekking not that I go trekking. Last time I did that, I almost fainted. A sign of how unfit I really am. I love both colour though!

Here’s to two chances in crossing out “join a fun run” in the bucket list.

#BEDM : BaByliss PRO Dial-a-Heat Tong

BaByliss PRO with 32mm tong makes creating big curls easy and less dangerous. The 25 heat settings makes curling hair less dangerous. On the box are the descriptions of each part of the curling iron. There’s also a heat level guide for the type of hair you have. The wire swivels out of your way when curling the hair.

BaBylissPRO

This is the first time I owned a curling iron. As much as possible, I don’t want to use heat on my hair. Being a newbie curling iron user, I had a hard time using the curling iron. My fingers touched the hot steel barrel a couple of times. I also don’t want to immediately use a very hot curling iron. The curling iron temperature of 5 is already hot for my liking and I don’t want to damage my hair.

BaBylissPRO Curling Iron

The next on my shopping list would be heat protectant spray and hair spray to hold the curls. I am eyeing the Tresemme line of hair products.

Here’s one Youtube video from BaByliss Pro UK showing us how to do modern curl hair. [Read more...]

#BEDM : Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles

I’m not born with flawless skin, it’s just Maybelline.

Okay, I’m corny. Sheesh!

Together with the NYX Matte Lipstick purchase, I also added in the shopping cart the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles

It’s a treatment concealer with goji berry, instantly erases dark circles, fine lines and visibly diminishes puffiness. Eye area instantly looks radiant and refreshed and I am in colour medium.

To start using the concealer, you must turn the collar in the direction of the arrow. It took a couple of turns until the product came out. You then draw a V under the eye and start blending using the tip of your finger. A word of advice, moisturise around the eye area. It makes application and blending easier. After one application, my under eye circles and puffiness look a lot better.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles is sold by a Facebook online reseller Stuff In Style. It is for Php500 only and shipping fee vary depending on your location. Head out to the store, have look or shop and say Audrey referred you there. The proprietor, Ms. Windy, is really friendly and accommodating. They are also on Instagram. Go follow!
