iPhone 7 is finally here! :) Ralph and I got to attend its midnight launch at Beyond The Box and we honestly did not expect the line we saw. Yes, I did think that there would be some who would be there for first dibs, but I didn't expect it to be that long on a mid-week night! People lined up and waited for their turn even though they probably still have work the next day. :)
If you're following me on instagram and saw my stories, you would see the long line and the exciting opening of Beyond The Box's door as a way of welcoming the hottest phone in town. :)
I was asking people how different the new iPhone 7 is from the previous iPhone and most of them mentioned the quality of its photos so that was one of the things that Ralph immediately tested he got hold of the phone. :)
Here's Ralph trying the front camera! This picture does not give justice to the quality of iPhone 7's photos though. Truly, the photos are super HD, kita lahat ng imperfections. Haha! It also has a dual camera at the back, which is probably one of the reasons why the photos are clearer and sharper.
iPhone 7 has a glossy case while iPhone 7 Plus has a matte black finish. Medyo mas badass yung matte black pero pati yung price badass. Haha! I'll be sharing the prices at the bottom of this post so prepare yourselves :)
Aside from the iPhone 7, Beyond the Box also launched the Apple Watch Series 2. :)
I was trying it out, pero hindi ko mashado gets. I'm not a big watch user to begin with so a techie watch is just difficult for me. But, it's cute! I love this rose gold series with pink strap! I just wish I knew how to use it. :D
surPRICEEEE! Sharing with you the prices of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at Beyond The Box. :)
I know medyo nakakalaglag puso yung prices, but if people are lining up for it on a weekday night then it's probably something worth buying. And, don't worry because Beyond The Box got your back. On their press release, they mentioned that both phones will be offered with "easy payment terms".

Last week, I was invited to attend an event for Urbanize PH and it was probably one of the best events I’ve ever attended. It was filled with games, activities, laughter and lots of food. There were no dull moments for that half day event and the same can be said about their products. :)
Before going there, I’ve never really heard of Urbanize so everything was new to me. It was something I really have to blog based on that day’s experience and not a history I had with the brand. Sometimes, it can be difficult because how can you say much about an item/brand/store if you barely even know it. This, however, was different. I guess the activities helped us a lot to know the brand and its products better since all the games were very interactive and highly experiential. Even the talk of Mr. Francis Kong during the event says a lot about how Urbanize aims to be of help to the Urban community physically, mentally and emotionally. :)
Before anything else, here’s a quick idea of what Urbanize is all about and what went down during that crazy fun event.
Urbanize is a one-stop shop for the highly mobile lifestyle of today’s city dwellers (a.k.a. Urbanites). Correct me if I’m wrong, but the fast moving world today requires much from its people. Multi-tasking and going through the struggle of facing traffic and commuting are some the things that Urbanites face regularly. This is exactly what inspired Urbanize to create a store that’s fashionable, stylish, safe yet very much functional because they want to make Urban life easier for the people. :)
Aside form its own brand of products, Urbanize also carries a variety of impressive international brands that offers “organization” such as Pinqponq, Focused Space, Tech Protection of STM and Security Bags of Pacsafe. They also have in store the minimalist women’s bag, Sherpani and the world’s thinnest wallet from Allet. :)
For the techies, Urbanize carries Japan’s No. 1 brand on Mobile Peripherals, Elecom while travellers can find joy with the innovative hydration gear, Hydrapak, that sells collapsible water bottle with no-leak guarantee (My favorite! Will talk more about this later!).
Office people can now keep their keyboards and laptops safe from coffee/water/tea/juice spills because Urbanize now carries Artiart’s Suction Mug, a mug that does not fall or get bumped off easily!
Yes! Cute, stylish and functional indeed. :)
The HYDRAPAK! I am so amazed by this product! :)
It’s a collapsible water bottle that can easily be stored in your bags. (See photo above to get an idea on how it works. Hehe!) But, that’s not the only thing that makes this so special! :)
One of the activities for that day was to make a Boomerang video using the Hydrapak or the Suction Mug. :)
This is the boomerang video of the Hydrapak falling from the 3rd floor to the 2nd floor of Uptown Mall BGC! AMAZING! It just bounced with zero damages. :) I was the one who dropped it from the 3rd floor, and my heart was falling with it when I first tried it (We did it twice, okay. Hahaha! NO LEAK! DIDN’T BURST!) The second try was “chill” na since I was already confident that I wouldn’t break it. Hahaha! :)

Tried the Artiart Suction Mug on my bed table since this is probably one of the worst places I can put my mug on. If this baby falls and the water spills, I'm going to end up with a wet laptop and bed. :)
Kapit lang kapatid. Hahaha! :)
I've tried the suction mug on different surfaces and I've noticed that it sticks to glass the most. :)
[A glimpse of my super pink and girly bed/room. Hahaha! I've had this room since I was 7 and I'm too kuripot to change the interior even though my mind is already picturing a whole different dream room. LOL. Anyway, you guys are going to be seeing more of this on my vlogs so you have to get used to this girly-ness. Haha!]
The Urbanize bags makes helps Urbanites to organize with its functional pockets. :) I hate it when I have to take out all the things inside my bag just because I couldn't find my power bank; it's hassle and messy at the same time. :) So aside from the design and size, one of the things that I usually check whenever I get myself a bag is its pockets. Having numerous pockets help the inside of the bag look more organized and it's easier for people to find their stuff as well. :)
And because they're really promoting this about their bag, they used it as one of the games for the event. [Sorry, I wasn't able to take a photo of the flay lay we made so I'm just going to explain the whole thing. Haha!] We were given quite a number of stuff: backpack, power bank, speaker, pens, notebooks, wallet, selfie stick and more. For the first game, we were asked to take best flat lay of all the things provided to us. Second, we have to fit everything into the backpack and the group that has kept all the things in the most organized way, wins! Of course, with Urbanize bags' number of pockets it was easy for us to organize and fit everything inside the bag. :)
These pockets are made for power banks and external hard drives. Look how perfectly both my gadgets fit into the pockets of my Urbanize bag. :)
In a city with quite a number of pickpockets, security and safety of our valuables is also very important. I usually don't use backpacks whenever I go out because I think it's easier for the pickpockets to get stuff from my bag without being noticed since they'll be getting them from the back and we have no eyes at the back of our heads. And, backpacks are usually bigger and bulkier than sling bags so it's also harder to feel it if someone's opening it. :)
With this Urbanize bag, they've put a safe zip pocket at the back where you can put your money, phone, cards and other valuables. This will eliminate your fear of traveling/commuting using a backpack (its the easiest bag to bring around but the riskiest too) because all your important stuff are safely secured. :)
I'm very thankful & happy that I got to take home this particular bag because it's minimalist, clean and stylish yet very functional. It's also my first ever laptop bag (huhu); I can finally easily and securely take my laptop with me wherever I want. :)
Thank you so much Nuffnang & Urbanize PH for organizing such a fun event. And, thank you to my teammates: Ana Gonzales, Marga Banaga & Joana Carrasco for being so creative and amazing! You guys are the best! :)

It’s been a month since I attended the E! Bloggers Ball, and I still couldn’t believe that I was invited to that very eventful night. First of all, I am no popular blogger. I’m barely even a speck in the Philippine blogging world so that invite really came in as a surprise, and it was a great honor to be a part of it. :)
Since it was a blogger appreciation night, maybe it’s time for me to share a little about my blogging journey. I started over 7 years ago, when I was still in college, but I never really got to maintain it mainly because of school, which was my priority back then. After I graduated from college came the regular work that takes so much of my time. I remember going home at 10:00 PM or even 1:00 AM sometimes just because of all the workload. I know I’ve wasted a lot of opportunities and precious time during all those years, and I know there’s no way I can bring them back now. Maybe you’d say, nalampasan na ko ng panahon, but I’d like to be positive about it.
Now let’s fast forward to 2015, when I was already stable at work and had more time to pursue things that make me happy. Mid-2015 I was contacted again for a product review and an event. I’d like to consider it as a sign and a wake up call that maybe there’s still something in it for me. And, it’s also timely that I was already at the point in my career wherein I can have a better hold of my work hours. From that day forward, I was already being invited to events and was receiving products for review from time to time. I enjoyed every single one of them, and I’m happy to have gone this far after a 6-year lie low period. I didn’t even think I’d get here after 6 years since bloggers usually get their break after only a year or 2 of blogging. Pero sabi nga nila, in God’s time. :)
I think God couldn’t have chosen a more perfect time for me to start this new journey in my life. He knows I needed my education first, He knows I needed to learn how to survive a regular job, He knows I needed to wait quite some time to have a better appreciation of what I’m doing. I don’t have any complains and I wouldn’t have it any other way. :)
Now, here I am being able to spend a night with some of the most popular bloggers/online influencers in the country. I met a lot of new friends and new acquaintances from that awesome night. :)
The E! Bloggers Ball was a social event wherein bloggers got to meet other bloggers, share booth activities together, walk the red carpet and take a lot of photo opportunities. :D
At Features & Shades' Booth, bloggers were only required to pose at their booth holding the "We Love FS Cosmetics" sign and we were already given lots of freebies! I will share the goodies to you guys on my future posts since there are so many of them. Ang saya! :) Thank you so much, Features & Shades for all our new beauty products. :)
The night was also spent awarding those who have stood out in the blogosphere. :) Congratulations to all those who have won an E! Bloggers Ball trophy! They all deserved it, pero GOALZ ko na yun for next year! Hahaha! :) MUST TAKE ONE HOME!!! Charot. :)
