Gadgets, Gizmos, and more at the Philippine Digital Lifestyle Expo.

Are you excited for the long weekend? I know I am! The little man and I can't wait to go out-of-town and enjoy some quality time with the rest of the family. We both deserve some R&R after last week's super busy schedule, with his quarterly exams and all.

How about you? Where are you guys off to for the long weekend?
If by chance you'll be at SM Megamall, why don't you swing by the digital lifestyle expo hosted by Globe Telecoms? Dubbed as "Wonderful World with Globe: Philippine Digital Lifestyle Expo", this event will bring together the latest digital trends, gadgets, and applications that can enrich today’s mobile experience.
Wonderful World with Globe.
As we all know, people nowadays are more drawn into living the digital lifestyle. The increased ubiquity of smartphones, tablets and similar gadgets, the birth of innovative data plans, and the abundance of various apps are shaping the way Filipinos live, communicate and connect with each other. What they download, explore, and share online define their identity and lifestyle as digital citizens.

Constantly being connected is now a must to stay abreast and be “in the know” of the latest events and trends. Whether for working or playing wherever and whenever, downloading the latest app that supports a passion for health, worthy advocacy or anything in between, streaming music and videos, playing online or as simple as making one’s presence felt or voice heard on social media through posts, likes and shares, no doubt the digital life is being embraced by each one member of the hyper-connected generation, making deeper and lasting connections through the power of the Internet.

Through this Digital Lifestyle Expo, which is the first of its kind, netizens can see for themselves the latest gadgets, the hottest innovations, together with the products and services offered by Globe and their technology partners.

The Wonderful World with Globe: Philippine Digital Lifestyle Expo will be held on August 22 and 23, 2014, at the Mega Fashion Hall of SM Megamall, in Ortigas, Pasig City from 11am to 9pm.

The event is open to the public where they can take part and enjoy the fun booths, interactive activities and games, exciting prizes and freebies and surprise celebrity guests. All these and more are lined-up for the netizens in attendance as they embrace a wonderful digital lifestyle powered by Globe.

Spotlight | Ever Bilena Extreme Lipstick.

"A girl can never have too many lipsticks."
This is what I always tell myself whenever the guilt of buying another lip product kicks in. Yes, I am one of those so-called 'lipstick bandits', and I guess there is no cure to this kind of addiction. All the more after receiving more than a dozen new lipsticks (nineteen, to be exact) over the weekend.

Thanks to our friends from Ever Bilena, I'll be busy for the rest of the week swatching, road testing, and playing with colors. I'll be featuring all the lipsticks that I received, starting with these two from the Extreme Lipstick line.
Ever Bilena Extreme Lipstick.
The Ever Bilena Extreme Lipstick is formulated with natural Vitamin E, which moisturizes the lips and makes the lips feel softer and look healthier.
Product description on the box.
I reckon there are fifteen shades in the Extreme Lipstick line, and the ones that I have are Pink Goddess and Hollywood Red.
Hollywood Red.
Hollywood Red.
Hollywood Red is the latest addition to the product line. It's a crimson red shade that does give off a glamorous vibe.
Pink Goddess.
Pink Goddess.
Pink Goddess, on the other hand, is one of the more popular shades in the Extreme Lipstick line. It's a frosted pink shade that's great for everyday wear.

Hollywood Red. One swipe on the left, two swipes on the right.
Both shades have buildable colors, are quite pigmented, and have a nice, satin finish. They're easy to apply, and leave the lips with a soft, moisturized texture.

These lippies are surprisingly good, I'm considering buying trying the other shades from the same line. Not now, but maybe after I've gone through all of the 19 lipsticks that I have just received. Haha!

What I love:
- Simple yet stylish packaging.
- Has a nice, fruity scent that's not overpowering.
- Moisturizes the lips.
- Easy to apply.
- Great color pay-off.
- Satin finish.
- Several shades to choose from.
- Widely available.
- Affordable price.

What you might not like:
- Wear time is a bit so-so. Pink Goddess lasted on my lips for about three hours,
while Hollywood Red a little over four hours. Both without eating or drinking. 

Ever Bilena Extreme Lipstick sell for Php 155 each and are available at leading supermarkets and drugstores nationwide.

Foodie Goodie | Krispy Kreme Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Donuts.

Now that the little man's Quarterly Exams are over, we can finally sit back, relax, set his books aside for the meantime, and just really enjoy the weekend. I promised my boy we'd go to the movies if he did well in his exams, and so far - from four of his subjects - he's kept his end of the bargain.

As an early treat, I got him these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from Krispy Kreme. (Thanks to my friend Angel, who bought them for me!)
Turtle Power sans my favorite turtle, Michaelangelo.
He was sold out at KK Megamall!
I loved them turtles ever since I was a child (I'm a kid of the 80's, you know), and I'm glad my son appreciates them as well. He now has a growing collection of anything 'Ninja Turtle' - from toys, to clothes, to bags, and now even donuts. Haha!
Meet Leonardo. In case you didn't know, he's also the leader of the awesome foursome.
That was a joke, of course. It didn't even take a day for the little man and I to finish this box of 'turtle-frosted' donuts. (Hello, calories on the hips!) Aside from the cuteness factor, I love how these donuts are not cloyingly sweet. Truth be told, they're barely sweet - which is rather surprising considering that the green frosting is actually made from white chocolate.
Truly, Joy in a Box.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles donuts are available at all Krispy Kreme outlets starting August 4. They sell for Php 45 each, or you can buy by the dozen for only Php 395. They're available for a limited time only, so better grab a box now while you still can. Cowabunga! :)
