ELIZABETH: Animal Stripe Inspired Nail Art

This time, I modify the zebra prints and make it a bit bigger for a more noticeable contrast of color...
This nail art is very easy.. Just use a white base coat..

As usual, you could choose whatever color you want or have, but as for me, Zebra is it!

live, love, laugh,
Beth :)

My|Phone A919i Duo over Iceberg

 After several days of contemplation, I finally gave in to My|Phone A919i Duo! The same day they launch the latest flagship smartphone - Iceberg.
Why did I choose A919i Duo over Iceberg?
It's cheaper. Although I love these
Myphone Iceberg Full Specification

Myphone Iceberg Features

Aluminum Body - Yup, the first among the rest. With the full integration of Aluminum body, Myphone Iceberg will not just be durable but also cool and sleek looking.

Clever Motion Feature - More like O+ air shuffle or Samsung' smart gesture that lets you control your phone using sensors like waving your hand to capture images, wave to dim, flip to mute, and clever dial.
Wireless HDMI - I'm not quite sure how it works, but according to Myphone the wireless display accessory will be sold separately, and by the way wireless display means showing your phone display on TV or LCD TV.

Anti-Theft Technology - A pinoy technology built for Myphone also known as Theft Apprehension and Asset Recovery Application or TARA, using these technology you can freely control your smartphone whatever case  may happens.

Corning  Gorilla Glass 2 - An upgraded version of Gorilla Glass, which basically means more scratch endurance.

Jelly Bean 4.2 - The latest is always the best, higher version means more compatibility and that's the best way we can have the most of Myphone Agua Iceberg.

16GB Internal Memory - I don't think you'll ever gonna need a microSD, but if 16GB is not enough for you then just use an SDcard .

I'm so satisfied with these, its cheaper and besides 5.7" is too big for my liking...

What I got? 
Sorry for the crappy photos... it's too dark in here and a 3.2MP won't do well or good. 
For your sake this is exactly what I got!
Box contents of MyPhone A919i Duo

Same white (I prefer white for a sleeker matte casing just like my My|Phone A818 Duo) A919i Duo including battery, same white earphone and USB connector and head charger (Php9590.00)
Screen Protector (Php150.00)
Jelly Case  in a transparent pink color (Php300.00)
16GB SDCard (Php2500)
Total Cost should be a whopping Php12,540.00 but Marlon of My|Phone Robinson's Galleria gave me 50% off on the SD card
Php90 off on the gadget and
jellycase and screen protector for free! #happydance
I only got my goods for only Php10750 only! #winwin!
How I fell in love with this unit is because of this review right here from Noypigeeks! :)

So there yah go!

ELIZABETH: People are People (Dalinda Style)

My bf and I stroll the mall yesterday and as always, he came with me to try out gladiator shoes I've been contemplating to buy. We enter different stores and finally at People Are People, I fell in love at first sight. I try it out and it "feet"s me well! lol But still, Im holding my tongue (more like holding on to my purse) on buying this... but after knowing its the last pair for this color and size, my bf "reserved" the item for me for one day. We left the store, and called it a day. Woke up and felt half-hearted to buy it because, I just had a new pair last week, then...

I'm so happy when I received this yesterday! Yes! My boyfriend bought it afterall and surprised me! I didn't expect him to buy this without me - I was just telling him on the phone not to! haha :)

One happy gal here!
#Life is short, buy the shoes! lol
Technically, I didn't buy it and received it as a gift - just because (he wants to!) :D

I love the design of the box! cute right? :) I would definitely keep the box, this is where I'll keep my shoes and the paper bag as a recyclable - chic and sassy way of helping Mother Earth! #thumbsup

A simple shirt and jeans will glammed up when I pair them with this! Oh la la love!

I'm so in love with the nude color and on the style of the sandals! Very comfortable to wear and it won't make my feet and legs hurt :)

Stay tuned for an OOTD soon!

live, love, laugh,
Beth :)

ELIZABETH: Outline Nail Art

This Nail Art is very simple! Just grab your thin brush and make a border line like this...Use a dark nail polish...

Then, just fill in any lighter nail polish, apply top coat and your done! ;)

ELIZABETH: Ishigaki (Premuim Glutathione Blend)

This unique custom-blend of Glutathione Tri-Peptide and essential amino acids were carefully formulated not just for skin lightening but as well as for the total wellness of the skin, hair, nails and bones! :) It helps repair damaged cells from free radical stresses and aids in attaining a healthy, smooth and fairer skin! 

I will be posting my feedback on this product after taking 2 bottles, so stay tuned! :)

live, love, laugh,
Beth :)

ELIZABETH: Celeteque (Brightening)

Hello there! Just wanna share to you what i bought from Celeteque.. A Brightening Radiance Body Cream with MultiBright Complex and SPF 15! :) 

This product contains MultiBright Complex, a revolutionary fusion of seven plant extracts (Mallow, Peppermint, Cowslip, Lady's Mantle, Fluellen, Balm Mint, and Yarrow) that reduces melanin to help achieve fairer and even-toned skin.

I also love this product  because it has effective moisturizers that help keep our skin smooth and supple! :) And it has double sunscreen protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays that cause skin darkening and premature aging. 

So, if you are looking for a multiple benefits like brightening and making your skin moisturize plus an SPF to protect your skin from the sun, you might wanna try this too! ;)

live, love, laugh,
Beth :)

Hello guys! How are you? I just wanna share to you one of our favorite restaurants this few weeks ago! A Chinese Restaurant called "Hap Chan"! Hap is the Chinese word for "to put together or bundle in one group". Chan is Chinese word for "place". Hap Chan defeated our previous number one Chinese food hot spot - ManHann... For the reasons you'll understand just soon enough. lol (Of course, Chowking is number one on a different list, if you know what I mean... hehe)

Here are my eating buddies also known as my family...

BDJ Rendezvous: Work Your Way To The Top #WYWTTT

As a working mom - a work at home mom (wahm) - I could easily do my business without makeup on, or corporate clothes for that matter. I could myself my boss, and time is in my hands. But that didn't hinder me nor my BDJ family members - meet my cousin, Ate Zhai and only sister, Beth!

from joining this BDJ Rendezvous: Work Your Way To The Top!

Cut the chase short, here are the highlights of the event!
Ms. Hazel’s emails always have that reminder – 80 first bellas will take home lootbags and a chance on the raffle prizes. Heck, if we are doing this, we will do it ALL THE WAY.

The first talk: Stay On The Beat with Donna Miranda

I dare you to read this tongue-twister like phrases... photos until june 2013 831
It gave me headache!
My favorite talk of the program was: Express and Impress with PJ Lanot!
I think this is the best part of the show! Interactive gossip chat with the audience (us)! I just love this guy! Aside from the fact that he’s cute between a Cid Lucero and Christian Bautista for my opinion and seductive voice behind Gerald Anderson and John Lloyd Cruz, this guy is more than a good face, he’s a complete package – face, voice, body, (yes, I have to include the body, the body language that is! lol) and talent!
photos until june 2013 850
Learned a lot of  dirty badass tricks on how to impress – observe, follow, lead. If you’re on the rendezvous, then you know what I’m talking about! *wink wink
Of course we didn't let him slip away without a photo, right?

Pretending we are THIS CLOSE. *insert cross fingers here…

The food as always was amazing! Pasta with black olives and fita crackers with that amazing-palaman (IDK-what-its-called-spread) was so scrumptious, I burp before I remember to take a snap shot for my instagram (follow me on IG: @gerilen)!
P.S. to all attendees – if you know what it’s called, please comment it down below. A link to the recipe won’t hurt either! ;)
After the break we had the third talk:
