Random TV Babble: VicTORious

Staying at home and watching TV for hours on end may seem boring and un-spectacular to most people but it's a real luxury for someone who never gets to do it. I am so looking forward to catching up on old favorites and discovering new obsessions. One show I recently got into is the Nick teen show VicTORious.


It's set in a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts and the main character is a girl named Tori Vega who is a new student there. Anyway, there's a lot of musical numbers and showcasing of talent in every episode, it's really fun to watch.

I started watching this show because I ran out of iCarly episodes to watch (another teen show on Nick- a longtime favorite because I love Miranda Cosgrove. Also, I don't think I'll ever get tired of teen shows no matter how old I get)

I will also admit that one of the main reasons I enjoy this show is a character names Beck Oliver (played by Avan Jogia.) Beck is an incredibly good-looking guy who sometimes speaks with an adorable English accent and looks uh-MAZING in a gingham shirt  like the cool ones available at Aeropostale .

Baviphat Fruits Miniature Gift Set

I've had tremendous luck with the Baviphat Fruit Magic line so when I saw this from one of my favorite online sellers, I could not resist.

 
The gift set incluces 4 miniatures (6 g each) from the "fruit miracle" line:
  • Mango Magic Brightening Mask  (Will try soon. Stay tuned!)
  • Peach All in One Peeling Gel (my sister gave me hers before, but it dried out before I got a chance to use it. :o_O)
  • Lemon Whitening Sleeping Pack (I love this, too!)

Going Red for a Change

I mentioned in a previous post that I'm probably gonna have more time for blogging soon. That's because I recently quit my job in preparation for moving another city.

It's kind of sad: I have lived in the same house all my life (minus a couple of years in college and some time with relatives on vacations)  and I have worked in the same industry for about 5 years now. But I'm not gonna lie, I think it's a great opportunity to try new things.  I love my job and I think I'm pretty good at it, but I have always wondered what else is out there for me. 

Maybe I'll go to business school. I could sign up for a VeritasPrep gmat prep  course first and see if it's for me. This course is taught by only the finest instructors and not only guarantees a great score but gives you the knowledge and the tools which are necessary for success in getting your MBA. Hey, anything worth doing is worth doing well.

We'll see. That's just one of the possibilities, anyway..

Here's another bold move (for me at least, because if you've been reading my previous post, you'll know how much love I have for pink lippies.):  I got my first red lipstick: Ever Bilena Matte in Love That Red

Enjoy Easy Cash Out with Globe GCash Card


I just got the basic design. LOL. Lazybones.


In the Philippines, one of the most widely accepted modes of payment for online transactions would have to be Globe GCash. It's really useful for shoppers and sellers alike. Sending and receiving payment has become as easy as sending and receiving text messages.

One of the biggest inconveniences, however, used to be in cashing out. You had to go all the way to a Globe Customer Service Center,  fill up forms, and stand in line. Not anymore. With the Globe GCash Card,  you can just go to any ATM and get your money like you do from a regular ATM bank account. There is a transaction fee of PHP 20 every time you cash out.

Want one?  Here's how:
.1. Fill up an application form here. You can even customize the look
2. Authorize GCASH to take PHP 100  from your GCASH account.
3. Wait for it to be delivered.

Mine arrived just yesterday via LBC.

I'm really sorry I haven't been updating all that much. Been busy. I'll have more time to blog real soon. Stay tuned.

Thanks for reading,
Jackie
