BMS x X-Mini Giveaway

I bring a lot with me when I go to the beach. I make sure I'm equipped with things that'll make my trip more enjoyable- that includes bringing a beach blanket, a cold fruit shake, sunnies to protect my eyes and speakers so I can enjoy good music! Usually when I’m at the beach, I enjoy the scenery and the mood more when there’s music. I love playing reggae songs and listening to All Saints’ music. Anyway, I brought three different types of X-mini speakers with me and I'll share with you guys why I love them. Just a fact about them: among all the competing noise, X-mini is established as a pioneer of the portable sound category with an uncompromising commitment to sound quality.

X-mini Max. Double the fun. If you think having one speaker is cool, try having two! X Mini offers a crisp and clear sound with the latest ceramic drivers. These capsule speakers have a magnet at the bottom so you can combine these two and make it into one portable speaker! It also included a carry pouch so you can bring it anywhere!

X-mini ME. There's a reason why they call it a thumb speaker. This is definitely the smallest speaker I've seen by far. You can use it as a key chain and leave it inside your bag everyday and you won't even notice it's there! The reason why I love using speakers is that I don't want to always play music through my phone because I'm OC like that.

X-mini Uno. Aside from bringing this with me to my travels, I use this everyday in my room too. It's so compact and you can compress it so it can be smaller when not in use. This is also with an enhanced design featuring the ceramic driver technology. The best part is it takes a long, long time for the battery to be drained! These items are available at Abenson, Ambassador, Bepper City, Cellpower, Dataview, Electroworld, iRecommend, iTech, Odyssey, Power Mac Center, Silienation, Techytrends and 8telcom Davao City.

And since I want you guys to make your music experience better also, I’m giving away 1 unit of X-mini ME colour pink! It’s the one just like mine. All you have to do is:

1. Like X-mini on Facebook

2. Follow X-mini on Instagram and Twitter

3. Instagram the last photo (picture above) and tell me why you want to win the @xminiphils speaker with the hashtag #BMSxXminiGiveaway

Contest period is from July 27-August 4 only. I’ll be announcing the winner on my Facebook and Twitter account. Good luck! BMS.

Black and Gray by the Bay

Sunnies Studios shades

Pink Salmon swimwear

There's no place like the beach. My mood automatically becomes relaxed whenever I see the sand, sun and shore. It's really amusing how I always end up wanting my getaways to be at the beach, even on rainy seasons! Haha. Luckily, it only drizzled for awhile during my trip so I still enjoyed my stay. I was shopping online a few days before my trip when I stumbled upon Pink Salmon, a swimwear/activewear clothing shop. I was so happy to see a lot of one-of-a-kind and trendy pieces from their shop- usually when I look for swimsuits, it's always the same two-piece bikinis websites sell. Pink Salmon invests a lot of time thinking of unique designs so you'll be sure no one can have the same outfit as yours. When I ordered from them, they even asked my vital stats to make sure the fit will be perfect! Not only is it made for the beach, but this swimsuit can be worn as a top too! I'll probably be doing that soon. BMS.

Road Trip

(Sunnies Studios shades, H&M top, American Apparel shorts, Topshop shoes)

Road trip!!! I wanted to do a weekday getaway since I had a free day and what better way to enjoy it the full experience more is to drive your own car, put down the windows and listen to good music. Oh yeah! I have to admit, I haven’t driven for a long time, so the feeling was extraordinarily amazing. The best part? I got to drive the Toyota All New Yaris. It’s so compact and trendy- it really suits any fashionista’s lifestyle! I brought a lot of stuff with me because the Yaris’ back door opens really wide. It’s more spacious than other cars I’ve ridden in. I stayed overnight at a resort in Batangas so I was technically six hours on the road (to and from) but didn’t feel any hassle because it was so comfortable driving the car. Everyone has a different style and this car can fit your everyday style. It’s fuel efficient and I didn’t have a hard time parking anywhere because it’s compact! Girls will love this car! Aside from driving it outside the city, it’s also super convenient driving around Metro Manila because of its size and fuel efficiency. And can I mention my favourite part of the car? It has a USB port near the radio so you can charge and listen to your music from your phone. Oh yeah! If you’ve seen my blog post before (you can read it HERE), I’ve already mentioned that it cops the right balance between sharp edges and smooth surfaces, expressing the car’s personality of being a fashion forward car. Thank you Toyota for letting me test drive the All New Yaris. Personally, I think we’re a match made in heaven.

London Loving

Yes, my schedule has been pretty crazy these past few days. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m in Macau now for a familiarization tour and will be back tonight for a launch of something very very exciting (I still can’t share it with you guys but once it’s announced, I’ll definitely make a blog post about it!). This weekend though, is a start of a new journey for me. I’m going to London to study again. Yes, you read it right- I’ll be student again and I’m so ecstatic!!! I’m taking up fashion branding at Central Saint Martins for one week and will be extending a week more to explore the beautiful city. It’ll be my first time going there and I’m happy, excited and scared that the same time! Wah! Honestly, I don’t think I’ll be able to make this happen if it weren’t for Prime App. I’ve been wanting to study abroad after I graduated college but never found the time to research and pursue it because of my busy schedule. Also, I’m bad at fixing all the requirements (I admit, it takes a lot of time to gather everything you’ll be needing for the school interview, visa interview, etc). When I found out about Prime App, I was extremely happy to know that they’re not only a travel agency, but an apprenticeship agency as well- meaning they help give opportunities to people who want to intern and study abroad. With this type of program, they’ll be the ones to fix everything for you! No hassle involved. So I grabbed the opportunity, got their “study abroad package” and now, I’m off to London this weekend!

The best thing about Prime App for me is that they partner with universities so it can be easier for you to get in your preferred school. The last time I spoke to them, they already partnered with over 60 educational institutions around the world (including schools in Australia, London, Singapore, USA and a lot more) and target is to partner with 100 universities by the end of the year. Their agency isn’t all about making packages for their customers, they create a lifestyle for their clients. They don’t just acquire an education from a foreign school, but they also give their clients a broader outlook in life and an opportunity for us Filipino students to transform ourselves into world-class professionals. If it’s your dream to study abroad and reach your goals, check out Prime App’s services and packages. I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do. Next week, Laureen is student mode on. I’M SO EXCITED!
