My Plum Lowerpro Terraclime 100

Last Sunday I was able to use my latest photography goodie on a shoot. My latest purchase was a Lowepro Terraclime 100 - Recycled Fabric Bag. The color? Plum! Ok so technically it is not my favorite color because it looked like a washed out purple, but it was fine. describes my bag as a protective bag perfectly suited to the eco conscious, fashion savvy individual looking to carry a digital SLR plus 1-2 lenses . It reduces environmental impact by virtue of its materials and construction - over 95% of the pouch is made entirely from recycled fabric. With internal zip pockets, a soft padded camera wrap for extra protection, double hook closure & shoulder strap it really does perform. A full complement of features, great looks & environmentally friendly.....fabulous!

What I really like about it is it bigger than my old crumpler bag. It has enough space to accommodate my lenses and other stuff like 2 phones, a small wallet, small makeup kit, receipts… without the cumbersome partitions. It is just a spacious bag with a padded camera wrap to secure your dslr or lenses. Berto suggested this bag and I loved it.

I do look forward to more shoots with my newest buddy, the plum colored LowerPro Terraclime 100.

Maybelline Lip Smooth Color Bloom

This is a late post, but let me share with you my affordable and effective beauty find just the same. A few months ago, I was supposed to meet some friends for breakfast, sadly though I forgot my kikay (make-up) kit. I had to rush over to Mercury Drug in Greenbelt, Makati for some emergency kikay supplies like face powder (dual foundation please, for maximum coverage), eyebrow pencil, blush and lipstick. I would have preferred to go to Watson’s but the mall wasn’t open yet. Fortunately,  I got everything I needed except for the lipstick. I couldn’t meet my friend pale-lipped, I had to make do with the next available choice, a lip balm.  I found the Maybelline Lip Smooth Color Bloom hanging by the cosmetics rack. I was a little apprehensive at first, but I figured that Maybelline made it, so it must be ok. Besides, it was really affordable at P99 only!

It’s a color changing lip balm that appears white while in the tube, then upon application to the lips, changes color. Maybelline offers two shades: Pink Blossom and Peach Blossom. I chose the pink shade since I was feeling girly that time.  When I applied it on my lips, it didn’t taste and smell funny, the way some lip balms do, plus it wasn’t oily or clumpy at all. After a while, my lips felt smooth and moisturized. I loved it! I was an instant convert! My only comment was that the shade was a bit too pink for me, but other than that, it was perfect!

Since then, I already finished off a tube, so I decided to get another one, this time in peach. It still lavished my lips with moisture, however it didn’t add much color to my lips. Unlike in the pink shade, I looked pale.  Note to self: finish this tube soon and buy the pink blossom again!

I highly recommend the Maybelline Lip Smooth Color Bloom, not only to busy working moms like me, but also to kikay teens and tweens who are not yet allowed to wear makeup. The price is budget-friendly and it does a wonderful job. Go ahead and try it!

Spot Top 10 Everything Food List

Months ago, I was searching for a basic accounting book at National Bookstore. ( I know it's a shame, an accounting graduate looking for an basic accounting book). I needed it since we are now proud owners of a photography business, and i am the unofficial bookkeeper. Anyway, I found the book I was looking for and on my to the cashier, this book, Spot Top 10 Everything Food List grabbed my attention. It's just perfect for hubby and me! I just knew I had to purchase a copy!

I love how lists are categorized according to dishes like Top 10 Bulalo, Fresh Lumpia, Tapsilog etc. I also love how they provide important information like restaurant branches, locations and the most important information, the prices. That way, there will be no surprises for patrons who'd want to give the dishes a try.

Hubby and I have decided to try and go through the list. We will go to the recommended restaurants and order the recommended dishes only, so our budget will not be too compromised. Just so we can form our opinion, whether we agree or disagree with its standing in the book.

Hmmm.... sounds like a plan. =)

External Hard Drive Woes

I discovered the wonders of the external hard drive five years ago, when I owned my first laptop. It was a lowly entry level NEO laptop with 30GB storage space. Having a baby, I was addicted to taking her and our family’s pictures. So in no time at all, the 30GB was full of baby pics. It was also around the same time when I discovered the joys of digital scrapbooking. I installed Photoshop in my laptop but sadly it won’t run. Apparently the memory and storage space wasn’t enough to run a memory hogging application like Photoshop. I was then forced into upgrading the memory and getting an external hard drive to accommodate my overflowing files.

My first external HD was a 320GB Fujitsu. I excitedly transferred all our pics there. It conked out on me after a year. Words cannot describe my frustration when this happened. I’d rather not go back to that dark place =(. Next I went and bought a 500 GB shock proof Buffalo external Hard Drive. That lasted for more than a year, then suffered the same fate. Because I was afraid of it crashing again, I was able to back up most of my files by burning them into DVDs (thankfully!).

It was around this time when we opened our photobooth and photography business, and I had to get a new (and improved) laptop from Acer. It had a faster processor, a higher memory and storage capacity and better video card. I bought it through Bpi Madness in Glorietta Mall, and I was pleasantly surprised that the purchase came with lots of freebies like bags, memory upgrade, Smart Bro internet stick, a wifi router and a Samsung 500GB external hard drive! (wow, talk about a great deal!) This gadget came in wonderfully attractive colors, I got the sparly blue one.  I was apprehensive in using the Samsung External HD since they were relatively new in the storage industry, but eventually I did use it. It has been 2 years since then, and it‘s still working! I love it! Thank you Samsung for laying my storage fears and worries to rest!
