Happy First Year!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I can't believe it...  time flies so fast! In just a few days (less than a week!) we'll been living in London for a year! Yay! 

This means one thing... we can now cancel, renew/extend or replace our contracts. What contracts am I talking about? Contract for our flat, cable, internet and phone plans.

A few days ago, I came across Straight Talk. Straight Talk is mobile phone plan provider. Comparing their monthly plans to my monthly usage, this can cut my cell phone bill in half! Imagine the amount of money saved if I can switch to Straight Talk.

Here's the list of their Monthly Plans:

  • The “All You Need Plan” meets even the needs of heavy phone users with 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and 30 MB of web data.
  • Unlimited Monthly service is only $45, and includes calls, text, picture messaging, and web.
  • Imagine unlimited calls, text, picture messaging and web for a whole year, for only $499.00!
  • 411 calls are included at no extra charge.
  • Free from activation, reactivation, or termination fees

Straight Talk only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung. Their phone selections include reconditioned phones that are great for teens/young users. They also have the new touch screen phones with various features. Android on Straight Talk will be amazing!

One thing that I like most about Straight Talk is there are no contracts! On top of that there are also no surprise bills and no credit checks. They have great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity.

Another major thing that I like about Straight Talk, is their International long distance service. Straight Talk International Long Distance Service is a flexible prepaid calling service that enables you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates. Great to use to Call a friend overseas.

If this is available here in the UK I would get one Hook, line and sinker.

Our New Bookshelf

We finally bought a new bookshelf!

I've been asking hubby to buy one years ago, even when we were still living in Singapore. He finally gave in because... seriously... we need one!

For years, we've been using the shelf in the photo below - for our CDs, DVDs, BDs, books, Starbucks city mugs and souvenirs PLUS some of our kitchen appliances, 50% of which are in the photo below. Good thing this shelf was very sturdy with all the weight it had been handling for years. :D

I should've taken a before-and-after shot of that shelf so you'll see how many stuffs were in there. :D

Our bookshelf... now looks like this


Filipino slang word for someone (female) who loves make-up, fashion, accessories and the likes.
(definition from Urban Dictionary)

I'm not ma-kikay.
  • I don't wear make-up, because I have oily face and it will just end up looking more oily on me.
  • I only wear nail polish on my toes. I'm very clumsy and I have busy hands, so I always end up ruining nail polish on my hands.
  • I'm more comfortable wearing jeans and shirt. 
  • Before moving to London, I'd usually wear flip flops.
Lately... I've been kinda ma-kikay.
  • Since I had a haircut two months ago, I now blowdry my hair. There's a valid reason for that... If I won't blowdry my hair, they end up frizzy and all messed up! It's too embarrassing to go out looking like I just got out of bed.
  • I bought a hair straightening iron a few weeks ago. I love it! But I don't what to use it that often because I don't want to make my dry & damaged hair to become drier and more damaged!
  • I now find it weird and I feel incomplete if I do not wear at least a face powder whenever I go out (I have no idea why!). Maybe because I am now in a country with a cooler climate, ergo my face doesn't melt easily. :D 
  • I've been buying these make-up that I want to try out, mostly from e.l.f. because they're so affordable. Now I even have mascara and eye liner! But only when I'm in the mood to put them on. Usually it's just powder/foundation, then some blush/color on my cheeks and some lip gloss. :D
  • Now, I've been looking for some nice nail polish, but I'll still use them more on my toes than on my hands. 
  • I feel so out of place when I go out wearing a simple jeans, shirt and sneakers. So now I try to wear nicer tops, and during lazy times I wear my flats. 
  • Let's not forget the coats and jackets... ooohhhh if only I can buy all of them! 

So what's with all the change? I guess it has something to do with the environment, the surroundings, the people around me. People here are too... fashionable (?).

I am not yet a certified kikay... but does this mean I'm being one? hahaha!
