Balenciaga vs Ikea Bag

I am a self-confessed sucker for bags! From purses to carrier bags I like them all. Well, most women I know love bags for whatever purpose it serves them. Personally for me bags are like my second-home that I carry along everywhere I go. Majority of bags I have are big tote bags, I have few that are a little expensive and I keep and use for special occasions. Bags needs to be useful and can maximize things you need to survive your activities on the certain day. 

This year our City is on full-implementation of no-plastic bags when you buy commodities and products in the market and from plastic use to paper bag transition people were a bit hesitant about it. We are encourage to use eco-bags and other reusable bags, so here goes another batch of bags I need to save for use when I go to wet market to buy produce or even buy grocery items. 

A good bulky and sturdy bag to carry all heavy items from the grocery is a must like the one I saw in IKEA page that people are raging about because of the similarity from a branded bag in the market. 

I am talking about Frakta, blue shopping bag from IKEA.

The good old washable, foldable and easy to store bag that can be use up for everything heavy when shopping. For less than a dollar you can purchase this bag, compared to the almost look-a-like from Balenciaga bag.

IKEA Frakta bag of less than a dollar vs Balenciaga Arena bag of $2,145 ( a little over and above beyond cray!).
Now the question is, would you buy the signature brand or get the less than a dollar bag with the almost the price? 
For me if I can afford to get the signature brand why not? But, they say you can strutt fashion whatever cost your outfit would be, as long as I am comfortable and gives the purpose when using it.

Maximizing my Mobile Time with PERA SWIPE in A FUN Way!

Since the last time I posted about this new craze in swiping and earning at the same time I am totally hooked with PERA SWIPE

From this post I will be walking you guys to my experience using the app from day 1 that I downloaded it. 

The app can be downloaded at Google Play Store, you can search it there and instantly you can see that yellow box with P or Peso sign inside. Choose that click to download. In just a few minutes the app was downloaded. Check down below the simple guide I made through photos.

After download click the Pera Swipe Icon and this box will appear, key in you r prepaid mobile phone number (the app also accept post-paid mobile number, and you can give the points to a prepaid number later on as a gift). 

After hitting the next button from the previous screen, simultaneously you will receive a text message along with the app screen which requires you to key in the 4-digit verification code.

The text message came from TLNET with the prompt message "Welcome to PERA SWIPE. Start earning points for FREE LOAD! Your verification code is....". 

When your code matches another page needs to be filled-up. Sign-up page with all the important details for your account. Name, date of birth, email address, PERA SWIPE ID, and other important details.

After the sign-up page it will direct you to Referral page. You can key in the PERA SWIPE Id of the person who referred you to this app. In this page is an instant bonus were I and my referrer can earn and instant P5.00!

After a few page to sign-up I am in! I can now start swiping my mobile phone and enjoy the points and perks I can earn using the app, and maximize it by inviting family and friends to earn while using their mobile phones too!

For a first time user I was excited on how the app will go through, and good thing there was a step-by-step guide. The interface looks so vibrant with the yellow color background also the icon. There are only few characters/ buttons to choose from and most importantly the icons for swiping and using the app every tine your trying to use your phone.

When your mode is on lock-mode and you need to use it you can swipe it to the right to use unlock it and to the right to unlock + earn. Well, for me I started automatic to unlock my phone by swiping it to the right...umm yeah the PERA SWIPE app! 

When unlocking your phone you will be redirected to the page of the advertisement. I like how they placed the ads on the app because it's from the products I wanted and been using and consuming. 

This is what my account page looks like, it has all the needed tab for your query. How many points do I have and how to earn more? All is there on the account page. There also indicates upcoming events which a user can participate and win points. Again, on the upper part of the the app the Invite your PERA PALS Gets Bonus Points. 

Corresponding points I earn can be redeem to the Load Store. Earn points and GET FREE LOAD!

In the settings tab you can customize your settings for the PERA SWIPE app. From activation of the lock screen, point notification and notification sound. Guess what the notification default sound every time you use the app is "PERA" it was too cute and noticeable. That is the sound we want to hear every time we use the app because right there and then we know we earn points. :) 
Also, an item you will be noticing every time you're in your account is the NOTICES which will keep you updated with all the important details regarding the app, your account, events updates and FAQ. The items there are very easy to will never get lost.

It has been five days already when I installed the app on my phone and since then I earned more than a couple of hundred of points in my account, with the same amount of time I am on my phone when I was using is without the PERA SWIPE app! I am surprised that using my phone by swiping it to unlock is equivalent to me earning points for FREE load! One just needs to be connected to the internet to use the PERA SWIPE app.

Earn by Swiping your Mobile Phone with PERA SWIPE!

Mobile phones became the most important tool in our so called "techy world", I know you all will agree to this. 
There are a lot of reasons for a person to own a mobile phone, and reasons sometimes vary with age and personality. 

The so-called "Millennials" or the younger people of this generation, getting into social media and engage to the people in the internet serves the reason to owning a mobile phone. 

In my personal take using a mobile phone goes down to me being a working Mom. Mobile phones is a means of communicating with my family members when I am away with them- which is the major reason so to speak. My mobile phone is under a monthly postpaid subscription for more than 10 years now. I started owning the said plan with more than the monthly-budget I had in mind. Until I've learn how to maximize my monthly to daily usage. I downgraded my subscription every year and now I am on my minimum monthly rate just to retain my mobile number. 

Throughout that journey I learn how to get freebies and free use of mobile data leaving me with the same minimum monthly rate.

Here are a couple points you can ask your mobile carrier to provide you as freebies specially when you are a loyal customer: 
  • Ask for an upgraded unit of mobile phone. They can give it to you for FREE or sometimes ask for a minimum amount to pay for the unit.
  • Ask FREE minutes of data, call and text that you can use monthly. 
If that is not enough for your mobile needs, and want to EARN POINTS FOR FREE? There is this new mobile app you can check were you can earn points and redeem it for mobile prepaid loads!
For a glimpse of what PERA SWIPE website looks like I provided some screenshots. Most of the information a visitor needs to know is can be seen in the entire page. 


PERA SWIPE is a lock screen rewards app created by Mobino Inc. PERA SWIPE aims to bring added value to content and promotions by rewarding users with points that can be redeemed for prepaid mobile load and other prizes (more prizes in the future). Postpaid subscribers are very much welcome to use the app since the load prizes can be sent to others as a gift.

PERA SWIPE displays various promotions and interesting articles offering different points on users’ lock screen. Users will be able to earn points by swiping left or right on their PERA SWIPE lock screen. Swiping right allows the user to unlock their smartphone, while swiping left on special promotions will direct the user to the promoter’s website, social media page or other URLs.

PERA SWIPE load redemption supports Globe, Smart and Sun.

PERA SWIPE is available for download via Google Play Store and will only be available for Android users.

I downloaded the app and my phone looks so cool! It only requires small space for the app and I am stoked!
Join me as we earn points by swiping our phone.

3 Ways Lightweight Folding Portable Mobility Scooters Can Change Your Life

yellow luggie elite 1

Mobility scooters are electrically powered scooters designed for people with restricted mobility, typically those who are elderly or disabled. There are four various types of mobility scooters: small and light, large and heavy, mid-range scooters, and slow and steady. 

Small and light scooters can be folded or dismantled for storage. They are usually compact and generally have lower maximum weight capacity. Large and heavy scooters are the ones you see with larger seats. They may be the best option for rough rural terrain. However, they also require more storage space in a secure place. Mid-range scooters are designed for both indoor and outdoor use while the slow and steady type is best for shopping stores.

Among all the types of mobility scooters, small and light scooters are the best ones for traveling. They can be easily disassembled into smaller parts. The newer units of mobility scooters even feature an easy-fold option for extra convenience. There are also models that are durable enough in spite of their lightweight so they already serve the purpose of other types of scooters. If you want to know more about how mobility scooters can benefit you tremendously, keep reading.

  1. It gives you the freedom to go greater distances. You can take your lightweight mobility scooter with you everywhere. You can even take it with you in case you are planning to go on a cruise or have a trip abroad. You should not miss out on all the fun because your scooter will help you travel with ease. Because of its lasting battery, you can now enjoy touring more than ever. High-quality portable mobility scooters can go up to 15 km on a single charge. They are designed with lithium batteries that can last up to three years when charged regularly. While most states do not really require registration of mobility scooters, just make sure to contact the respective road authority in your state to check if a license is needed.

  1. It lets you do errands without the hassle. Getting your independence back is one of the good things of owning a mobility scooter. Planning to head to the supermarket to do the groceries? Take a lightweight folding mobility scooter with you. This way, you can easily go through the grocery aisles without worrying about maneuvering your scooter.

  1. It will improve your lifestyle. With a portable mobility scooter, you can already enjoy doing things you have always loved doing. For seniors, you can be more confident in joining family reunions or gatherings. Or you can even take a nice ride around the neighborhood. There are scooters with a truly awesome and stylish build. Rest assured that you can find ones that have a sporty look if that is what you are looking for.

The majority of lightweight scooter models these days boast features that are better than before. But when looking at the market for the best model that will suit your needs, always consider size, maneuverability, and comfort. Remember it should be light enough so that you can easily load and unload it from your vehicle. Another tip to remember is that while you want your scooter to run well, your legs should also feel at ease throughout the ride.

5 Items Every College Graduate Should Have

Graduating from college is such an exciting time. All of those hours spent in the library and late night study sessions finally pay off as you walk across the stage and receive your diploma. Then reality hits, it’s now time to go out into the “real world” on your own. One of the first things most young adults do after graduating college and securing a job is get their own “adult” apartment. While this can be an exciting time, it can also be very stressful setting a budget and figuring out what items you’ll need.

Today in order to make the “adulting” process easier for those of you making the adjustment from college student to young professional, I have compiled a list of the top 5 items that I think every twenty-something year old should have.

  1. Professional Attire
This is an absolute must-have! After graduation you will be going on tons of interviews. What you wear to a job interview can mean the difference between getting a job offer or getting rejected. You should own at least one professional outfit that you can wear on job interviews and any other business meetings you may have in the future.

2. Good pillows
We all know how important sleep is. Everyone loves sleep! But without good pillows, you’re not getting the quality of sleep that you deserve. Now that you’re out on your own, it’s time to ditch your cheap pillows and invest in pillows that will give you the quality of sleep that you deserve in order to be successful, happy, and healthy. Casper has an amazing line of pillows that provide the perfect balance of softness and support!

3. Vacuum
Now that you’re out on your own, you’re going to make a lot of messes. Most apartments have carpeting throughout so a vacuum is a necessity to clean up those spills! Vacuuming your rugs also helps make your new place look fresh and clean, especially for when guests come over to visit!

4. Tool Box
I never thought I would ever need a tool box until I moved into my first apartment. Now, I strongly believe a basic tool box is a necessity for young adults starting the adulting process. From assembling your new appliances to hanging wall decor, you’ll never know when you’ll need a screwdriver or hammer.

5. Wall Decor
Wall Decor is a simple, inexpensive way to make your apartment look and feel complete! Filling your apartment walls with pictures and other wall accessories will help make your new apartment feel like home. You can find inexpensive options on sites like Etsy to help add your own touch to your first apartment without breaking the bank!

What are your necessities for those beginning the “adulting” process?

Finding the Right Job for You

If you’ve ever known someone who found their calling, you may be wondering how they did it. It’s true that if you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life. But how do you figure out what you were meant to do? Luck has something to do with it, but there are some steps you can take to figure out what kind of work will fulfill you.

Questions to Ask Yourself

There are some questions you should ask yourself when you’re trying to figure out what kind of work is a good fit.

● Where was your last job and why did you leave?
● What were your favorite classes in school?
● What are your hobbies and why do you enjoy them?
● What was the most enjoyable job you’ve ever had?
● What was your best day at work and what made it the best day?
● If money wasn’t a factor, what kind of work would you want to do?

Breaking it Down

After you’ve thought about it and have some general ideas about the basics of what would make you happy, there are some ways to work toward finding a job that suits your needs.

●  What are your talents? Is there anything that just comes naturally to you? Take a good hard look at your skills and figure out how you can apply them in the workplace.

●  Figure out what kind of work environment you are searching for. Would you like to work for a big corporation where there is room for advancement and a lot of benefits? Or would you prefer a small startup or mom & pop type operation?

●  Decide what specific things you need in a job. This doesn’t mean a title or an office or even a job description. Think more along the lines of what skills you need to use, if you like working alone or with a group, etc.

●  Research. It’s a great idea to talk to people in the field you’re interested to find out what it’s really like. That way, you’ll find out all the pros and cons and the things you never really thought of. Plus, you might find someone willing to give you a tip about a job opening or possibly a job reference.

●  When you find something that sparks your interest enough to apply for the job, figure out the best way to present yourself. You should be able to convey your passion and drive for the job when in an interview.


You Don’t Have to Go at It Alone

Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, you can always 
approach an agency to help you find a position that fits the description of what you’re looking for. It’s possible that they have an in somewhere or know of something that could help you. No matter what route you decide, don’t give up! It is possible to love what you do. Sometimes, though, finding it takes a lot more than luck.

SvelT’i gives back the gift of ‘self-care’

SveltT’i Health and Beauty Centre celebrates thanksgiving this April with a weeklong self-care pampering treat designed to jump-start a person’s journey towards long-lasting wellness that also brings out their best and lovelier self. The celebration is part of the year-long campaign that reinforces the centre’s mission and vision of cultivating desire for sustaining, long-lasting self-care, which means loving one’s self. Dr. Lalaine Salazar, SvelT’i’s Medical Director, says, “Many of our clients excel in what they do because they want to provide a good life for their families and loved ones. While that is important and commendable, they tend to forget themselves. Neglect of their health leads to a variety of conditions like acne, facial fine lines and wrinkles, skin blemishes, flabbiness, and unwanted weight.” 

“SvelT’i provides them with a holistic program that enables them to return to the right track of wellness,” Dr. Salazar continues. “Their inner loveliness or physical beauty and/or handsomeness emerges. The name of our center means that our patient can become svelte. That means he or she can slim down, look good, and be healthy.” 

SvelT’i is now opening its doors from April 3-10 to allow returning clients and first-timers alike to experience the premium brand of self-care that the centre provides. Amazing promotions are offered on all programs and, as their way of thanking their customers, additional treatments shall be given for free. Grab these promos now to personally discover that the centre is offering effective, easily-measurable, and comfortable treatments to those struggling with skin problems, aging effects, and excessive weight. 

Dr. Salazar says, “This weeklong celebration is also our way of thanking our customers who have supported us from the beginning. We also want first-timers to see how they can accomplish their health and beauty goals in a speedy, effective, and yet healthy way.” 

All of SvelT’i’s cutting-edge treatments are non-invasive, fast, and performed under very comfortable conditions. One session can take place in thirty minutes and does not require any down time. Each treatment is done in a private room where the individual can relax and even go to sleep while it is being administered. Afterwards, he or she can go back to work, shop, or meet up with friends immediately. 

“Many of our patients see the results even after just one session. They feel like their best selves have emerged after they undergo one or several of these treatments,” Dr. Salazar enthuses. “They also need to commit themselves to a life of self-love and self-care which manifests in taking care of their own health and their own appearance. Commitment is necessary for transformation, and we stand committed to help our patients achieve their dream goals of wellness and svelteness.”
