The Pleasure Is Mine

I went to an Avon event the other day and the event was happiness!  The Mariott Hotel's ballroom was turned into a huge salon where guest were treated to a fun Tres Treat so we can fully experience the star of the launch.  The Avon Advanced Technique Lotus Shield.  

Anyway so there were salon people from Creations Salon and especially the owner Lourd Ramos, who said he was can't wait to meet me. *Blushes* he said he reads my blog! :) Sweet.

After the hair makeover with him I immediately moved to the make up section and have my makeup done and wow half of the makeup artist in there said they can't wait to meet me in person because they read my blog too!  They said they look for my blog if they want a feedback on a new makeup product.  Isn't that flattering! They even asked me about the makeup products I personally recommend and what should they avoid.  

Its really flattering since they are the pro-makeup artist not me but they ask me for tips!  Love it!  The pleasure is all mine!  

The readers are really the ones that inspires me to blog as often and as useful as I could.  Thank you everyone and the pleasure is all mine!

The Best Coffee Makers

I don't drink too much coffee compared to other people I know who can gulp more than 4 cups a day. I feel I don't need that much coffee plus the fact that I think I won't be able to sleep if I drink too much of it.

Some research said drinking coffee is good for your health, while others said its not because of the caffeine. I guess it works differently for different folks. Some also said it has good anti-aging components which makes us look younger. 

But if you ask me I can give you feedback about who are the best coffee makers in town. If its shops then I can recommend you to Seattle's Best, Bo's Coffee, Starbucks and even Kapihan ni Lola haha.

They have the best coffee maker machines too and are very expensive. One coffee show we visited for a tour said their most cheapest machine cost about Php150,000! 

If its brands then the best coffee makers are Kopiko, especially their Kopiko Brown coffee. I also like Blend 45 3-in-1 coffee. I don't like Nescafe much its too strong for me. I like my coffee creamy and sweat not too strong but just right. They're just the same as San Miguel 3-in-1. 

How about you what is your favorite coffee shop and coffee maker brand?

Do You Order Personal Checks?

How do you do your business? Are you all out in spending printing out materials to impress the clients and competitors? Or are you thoughtful with whatever you do especially when it comes to environment protection?

I have sworn to protect the environment and be a source of waste in any way I can. I try hard to recycle, reuse and reduce anything as much as possible.

Do you order personal checks even if you still have pads and pads of it or do you wait until you are left with one? Would you rather order personal checks to a printing company who use recycled materials or you want everything spanking brand new for you?

I'll remind everyone now that when ordering checks, make sure to ask the bank if they have a printing company who recycles paper and don't cut fresh woods. In that way you are helping out in protecting our natural resources and are reducing your waste.

Some will charge higher for reprints especially if their printing company uses recycled materials, or is it the other way around? I completely forgot. Anyway, just be mindful when using checks. If you can go paperless with your business transaction do so.

Things I Pick-Up To Need Less Money

It sounds silly but its actually what everyone should try to do to have an easier and happier life. Our stress are actually unnecessary because we are trying to measure up with everyone. If we focus on what we just need and not what we want then its easier to feel more blessed than anyone else.

1) Remove the frame of reference
If no one bought designer clothes, would you really care about a label? If you take away the point of reference to the equation and stop the comparison then its a lot easier to say what's really enough for you because you are going back to basic, and those are the things you really need and not just wants.

2) Identify your spending habits
Are you buying it because you need it or are you buying it because you want to feel good? Recognize which things you’re buying simply to avoid dealing with feelings. It may be a sense of loneliness, or purposelessness, or discontent. Buying may give you temporary relief but once you got the merchandise you'll go back to feeling the same again and want to buy something else again and its a cycle.

3) Be the Queen B
Its nice to go to an expensive out-of-the-country or out-of-town vacation or go shopping or have coffee with that expensive coffee shop but if you can do something more inexpensive and cheap why not try to do it. Start the trend, be the Queen B and the rest will follow.

Happy 4th Of July!

What more to say but Happy 4th of July to all my American friends, relatives and readers!  I hope you are having a blast of a day and will enjoy a nice barbeque party while waiting for the fireworks display!

Here's some Fireworks for you to enjoy!

Stay Happy!

Taking A Look At Ireland, Alaska & Australia Tours

So, where do you plan to take your next vacation? I know where I'm going!

The cheapest way to go out of the country is to book your travels using packaged tours offered by different travel and tours agencies and companies.

I've been wanting to go to AustraliaIreland and Alaska and can't find the best offers yet until I visited this website that offers the best vacation tours in the countries I've mentioned.

I love to be able to have the option to choose which airlines to board to, which hotels to stay in, and the places you want to visit. I don't like the usual packaged tours that will impose you stick to their schedule and stuck on visiting certain tourist spots only.

Mostly, what I like to do on my travels is to go to the most recommended destination, take a city tour first to familiarize myself with the area and get as many information as I can and make my own tours whenever and wherever I wanted. I think that is cheaper and much fun than sticking to a schedule and bad company.

The first thing I want to see in my australia tours is Sydney. I'm not sure what to see in my alaska tours but I'll visit a blogger friend who lives there. I heard Ireland got nice culture and history so that will be included in my itinerary for the ireland tours.

Gift Card Printing For My Party

As early as now, I'm planning what I will do for my super blogs 4th year anniversary.

I'm planning of a beauty, fashion, food, travel giveaway for my loyal and supportive readers. Because of this I will no longer initiate any short time contests or giveaways in my blog as I want the 4th hoorah a big one. 

I'll be doing another party so I need to take a look at some Online Printing for my invites and Gift Card Printing for my giveaways. I will be inviting 50 people only and to get an invite they have to do something for me too. It will be 1st come first served basis. The first 50 to fulfill all requirements gets the invite! Now that's prestige! Teehee!

I'm planning a contest that will involve active commenting and linking and promoting by my readers and I want solid readers that will visit regularly and not just because they are after the contests and giveaways.

I want readers who actively post comments and actively retweets or repost my blog posts. Those who will do will be generously rewarded.

My business card needs revision too so I'm planning a Plastic Card Printing for it. Yeah! I'm going big time!

Watch out for it!

What Audio Conferencing Do For Me

My computer is the most important possession I have right now because I use it for work and leisure. Without it I don't think I'll be able to survive this crazy life! Hahaha!

Being a blogger and a freelance digital marketing consultant I mostly do my work online. Having said that I use my PC in just about anything I do work related. I have online business inquiry and I reply to inquiries online. I also do my meetings using the Audio conferencing with it using a reliable audio system with working microphones, speakers and web cams. Without a reliable visual and sound system my Audio conference will be useless. 

Sometimes I use the Audio conference for personal use too. Especially when I talk with friends, relatives and loved ones who are out of the country and we are trying to save some moolah because its cheaper too.

We use either Skype, Yahoo Messenger or Windows Live Messaging. However, we can't use any of the above if the internet service provider sucks. So I definitely need a good net connection at home too.

How about you what is your most important possession right now? Don't be philosophical I'm just asking about the material things you have that you can't live without.

Sorry For No Updates

I'm sorry for neglecting this blog for awhile now.  I'm too caught up in updating my other blogs that I neglect this one.  I should keep it updated since its all about my happiness.  Not updating it make it appear that I don't find any happiness in my life now.  But really its the other way around.  I just don't find time to drop by I have no excuse but that.  Laziness and priority.  This blog isn't my priority.  I was focusing on my self-hosted blogs than this.

There's so many things to tell you about.  So many great things that happened since I stopped writing here.  I'll try to write once a week.  Hopefully and get my rhythm of writing daily and write sensible things and not just anything.  Write the way I used to and not just for commercial purposes.  Meanwhile, I need to blog for my sponsors so until next post. Toodles.
