VIVO V5S LEVELS UP SELFIE GAME, TRUMPS RIVAL OPPO F3 PLUS

I know I've seen a video of these two brands showcasing their competitive spirits against each other online and my initial reaction was, "Wow! the efforts of these brands are just amazing!" It was funny (and cute at the same time) and I can't help but feel proud as a consumer that they're doing it all to promote their respective brands. At least I know the money I'll be spending on their phones will not just go for the actual phone itself but also, for their promotions. And to think both smartphone brands are not that expensive! I really have big respect for brands who advertise.

Let's put the spotlight on the Vivo V5s.

The new Vivo V5s trumps its competitors within the same price range in terms of photo quality and camera specifications, improved selfie tools, and new features like the Groufie or Group Selfie technology.
With a slew of smartphone brands vying for the patronage of tech-savvy Filipinos and inveterate selfie enthusiasts, top five premium global brand1 Vivo has sprinted past the competition with its “perfect selfie” V5 line, the latest of which is the Vivo V5s. Priced at only P14,990 but loaded with features that are not found in its competitors, the V5s is turning out to be the best smartphone deal vis-à-vis other brands in the same price range.

I'M BACK AT AZALEA BORACAY!

And I'm happy about it. Obviously.

There are two hotels I frequent every time I visit Boracay. They're both located at Station 2 and somehow, near each other. Well technically, everything is near in Boracay if we are talking about the distances of the 3 stations to each other.

Now I prefer the other hotel if I'm with a small group of 2 - 3. But for big groups like families, Azalea Boracay is the perfect choice! For sure, there's one or two in your family or group of friends who know how to cook because that will help you save a lot. Let's start with that.

There are a lot of restaurants near Azalea Boracay where you can dine at. There's even a Kuya J inside it if you're craving for a Crispy Pata, among other things. But one of the best things for me about the hotel is it's just a 5-minute walk from D'Talipapa where you can buy fresh seafoods and have it cooked at a reasonable price. But if you prefer to save that extra dough from the "paluto" for your late night drinking (I'm not endorsing this) or water activities, then just buy the ingredients and cook it with your group at your suite in Azalea. Your apartment suite comes with a complete set of cookware and dining set so you're pretty much covered.

Sounds good?

TOP 5 GLOBAL BRAND VIVO LEVELS UP THE 'SELFIE GAME' WITH THE NEW V5S

I'm gonna be honest that I'm not a big fan of selfies. Go follow me on Instagram (shameless plug -hehe) so that I can prove it to you.

I don't do selfies for the sole reason that I don't do it well. And I find it kinda late in the game for me to start doing so. Let's just leave it to the ones who started doing selfies long before the selfie term was even coined.

Now even though that's the case (me not doing selfies), I appreciate smart phone brands that keep on innovating their features such as their cameras -more specifically, by leveling up the 'selfie game' like the Vivo V5s.
In addition to its high-end camera features and advanced selfie tools. the Vivo V5s brandishes an elegant and sleek design with slimmer bezels and finer details, with the U-shape cover lines making the back cover look even more premium.
I know I've mentioned myself not doing selfies but hey, Stephen Curry does it. Maybe I can try.

MUST DOWNLOAD APP: PENSHOPPE

I must admit that I used to be not into mobile apps for the sole reason of me foregoing "experiencing" the world and just rely everything that I need on technology. Online shopping? It was not for me. I wanna physically experience the thrill of the hunt. The interaction with the people. The victory of finding a good deal.

But that was then when I was younger (and with no credit card to my name -hehe). As I grew older, I started to slowly venture into the wonderful world of mobile apps. I actually downloaded around 30 in the past 3 months. Several of those were online shopping apps. I'm hooked! I guess, aside from age, it also goes with the amount of responsibilities that I have taken on putting physical shopping on the bottom of my priority list.

But I realized, I also need my exercise. Just armed with the convenience of mobile apps.

One mobile app that I recently discovered is Penshoppe. "Finally!" I thought when I found out about it.  It's not an online shopping app by the way. It's a balance between physical shopping and being updated on the latest about the brand with lots of perks and rewards!

So what's with the app?

Here's an overview:


After completing the first two steps, you can now start earning points and redeem rewards!

3 IN 1 AXE MAN

Admit it. With all the choices Axe has been offering us guys, I'm sure that you're kinda confused as to what to get for your personal style. Yes, style and scent go hand in hand. I myself got confused as to which Axe scent, Gold or Black, (it was Gold) will go well with a formal look I was sporting back then when the latter was released. My solution? Get all, or at least the three I'm featuring here on the blog.

Believe me, there are three kinds of style for every guy out there and with that, three Axe Fragrances to go along with it.

Here's a simple guide I made for you to try.

AXE GOLD for a formal look. Think suits and black tie events. For this set, I'd wear this with a navy suit.
Axe Gold + Edwin watch + Frank monk-strap leather shoes + socks with Argyle pattern
Now, for my personal favorite.

FINDING THE RIGHT SHIRTS IN F&F'S END OF SEASON SALE

Unlike most people, I lost weight over the holidays. The secret? I got sick. Long story short, I now look lousy in my size small shirts that's why I decided to buy at least a couple of right-fitting shirts to last me until I get my "normal" size back.

F&F was one of the first brands I considered because I know for a fact the quality and fit of their clothes. I should know because I was there during the opening of their first store in Glorietta (I couldn't pass up the Superman t-shirt and shorts set). I was lucky enough to visit their store during their End of Season Sale a couple of days ago and saw a lot of choices...

...in my current size, too! I fit XS now.

Aside from the style and the quality, what I really like about the clothes at F&F is its affordability! Take the discount from the sale off and I can still take 3-4 shirts home with my Php3,000. How much more if you put the discount back? Visit them this weekend and see these many choices.
