Freshly Squeezed: Orange Magazine TV Relaunch at Gweilos

Jeman Villanueva, Orange Magazine TV Editor welcomes the bloggers to the re-launch

The successful re-launch of Orange Magazine TV was very well attended by bloggers and PR partners last Saturday at Gweilos Bar, SM Mall of Asia. This event was to celebrate the new and improved site of Orange Magazine TV. Fun, food and drinks were served as this is just like a mini-reunion for bloggers and soon-to-be contributors.

Nikole and I at the event
Jeman Villanueva, Editor, started Orange Magazine TV on July 2010. He wanted to create an online magazine which features events, lifestyle, sports, music and the like. Since then, they have 13,000 online followers on Facebook and 400 on Twitter.

As Orange Magazine TV expands its network, they also invite bloggers to get involved in writing of the site. Via exclusive invites from the team, bloggers could highlight the content for Orange Magazine TV while promoting the blogger's URL.

The drinks were displayed

Food and drinks were served at Gweilos Bar at the back side of SM Mall of Asia, just in front the bay area. They also mixed alcoholic drinks for all of us to enjoy. I personally liked the baked oysters. I think the last time had one was during our Davao Trip.

Prizes and fun galore!

What completed our night? PRIZES! Jeman raffled off different prizes from different companies and PR partners who sponsored that night. I won a CD of Andrea Corr and a Guess eyewear. I must have been lucky that night! :)

Stick Away with Scotch Reusable Tabs

Now I've got the perfect tool for my DIY projects

I am such an obsessive compulsive person. Whenever I see tape marks on walls when I put something at it, I get so worried that I had to fix it immediately. But sometimes, I'm afraid to use tacks because it might ruin my space. Thankfully, 3M Philippines, makers of Post-It® and Scotch® now has reusable tabs for all my decorating problems.

Sweet Delights from Skin Cravings

They all look so cute and yummy!
I love joining (and winning) contests. Se when my friend Helen told me to join Skin Cravings' contest, Fan of the Hour promo, I never hesitated to answer their daily questions. Everyday, Skin Cravings will post three questions at their Facebook Page and fans who liked their page gets the chance to win a gift pack of their products. How sweet is that, right? Just like my pink blog's name, Sugarsmile :)

The American Idol Shines at the Live Tour in Manila

The American Idol Live Tour 2011 in Manila
I am still in awe and star stuck after the American Idol Live Tour 2011 last Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Thanks to Kara, I had the chance to score front row seats and see the American Idol 10 Finalists THAT close. Starting from their stage and visual effects, its almost as if you're watching at the American Idol studio. The place was so packed and we were so excited to see the performances.

Leila Lopes of Angola is 2011's Ms. Universe

Ms. Angola's Crowning Moment for Africa
One of the strong contenders during the Top 10 Finalists, Ms. Angola was crowned this year's Miss Universe. After watching them all compete, I do believe she deserves to be the winner. To be perfectly fair, this year's pageant proved to have the best Top 5 finalists and answers to the questions. The top 10 also includes: Laury Thilleman (France), Shamcey Supsup (Philippines), Zilin Luo (China), Sherri-Lee Biggs (Australia), Priscila Machado (Brazil), Olesya Stefanko (Ukraine), Sheldry Saez (Panama), Johanna Solano (Costa Rica), and Laura Goncalves (Portugal).

September Brings Our Favorite TV Series Back!

Aside from the fact that it is my birthday month, I LOVE September because four of my favorite TV series will premiere its new seasons once again. After almost three months of waiting, How I Met Your Mother, Glee Grey's Anatomy and Gossip Girl will open to their viewers to provide joy, drama and stories that matter.

My Heartbeat Runnin' Away: Super Bass

I never really adored Nicki Minaj as much as the artists she collaborates with (i.e. Rihanna, Will.I.Am). If you had known me well, I would change her song to another track because, let's face it, she's kind of annoying. (Peace, Ms. Minaj!)

Love Your Skin with Orly's Sweet Sheer Radiance

Sweet - that's how I always wanted to be perceived by everyone. And even in beauty products and fragrances, it is important for me to smell as sweet as I could be. That's why I am loving ORLY's Sweet Sheer Radiance Hand and Body Lotion.

Eat, Read and Love at the Culinary Out Kast

I've always loved Julia Roberts' movies. And when the boyfriend and I had dinner at Culinary Out Kast (C.O.K) at Banawe, I felt as if I'm breathing her two movies that night, Notting Hill (because of the books)and Eat, Pray, Love (because of the food!). You see, C.O.K. is not your ordinary type of restaurant, maybe because there's lots of things you can do there besides eating.

Outpouring Blessings from Loved Ones :)

A PINK Badminton from the boyfriend
I feel so blessed! My birthday was all sorts of fun and exciting. If I had only known that the people I love would exert all the effort for that day, I wouldn't have dreaded becoming 26. Though in my heart, I would be forever 21 :))

Jeff and I have only been together for a year and four months, but he's already known all the best of me. I guess I kind of opened up to him everything about me because we were total strangers when we first met each other. And although most part of my life consists of being a lovestruck naive girl, he never grew tired of listening to my stories, no matter how much of a bore they were. That is why I super loved his gift - a PINK Yonex Muscle Power 2 Badminton racket, because I keep on complaining that I needed to lose weight. And now, I need to double up on my the workout because the holidays are fast approaching once again.

The 26th Year :)

26 and lovin' it!
I've had my share of best and not so great birthdays. But the fact that I am still standing up despite life brought me, is a miracle on its own. After going through A LOT, and I mean the ups and downs, my illness, heartaches and off days, every day I wake up feels like a blessing. So on my 9,490th day of existence, I am very thankful for the memories, the adventures, the travels and the fondest occurrences in my life.
