NOTW: Marquise by Caronia

So when I cleaned and cut my nails early this afternoon, I said I'd keep it that way for at least a week or two. No nail polish, no anything. Just clean nails. Well, that was just what I SAID. :))
I still had the urge to paint my nails. However, I didn't feel like flaunting loud nails this week so I chose this translucent frosted polish from Caronia. Just simply, sweetly, princessy, isn't it? :3

Android App Review: Pixlr-o-matic

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

DESCRIPTION (from Android Market)
Add retro effects to your photos in a snap!
Awarded 2011’s "Best App Ever" award for the Best Photo Editing App on Android by 148apps.com

You can add fun retro effects to your photos in a snap and transform your photos into cool looking vintage images. Editing is as easy as one, two, three with Pixlr-o-matic to add effects, overlays and borders. So many options to choose from, there are more than 2,000,000 possible finishes to make your photos look spectacular!

I've already been using Pixlr-o-matic even before I had an android. I'm a great fan of vintage and retro-themed stuff since who-knows-when, so I was really thrilled when I found out about Pixlr-o-matic. When I got an android phone last September 2011, I was even more thrilled to see that Pixlr-o-matic has an android version, too! Now I can edit my photos anytime, anywhere, instantly! Here are some screencaps I took:

There are a number of presets available, most of them are grungy, vintage, and retro. Aside from these, you can also download additional effects if you like. However, I think the presets initially available are already adequate ;)

for this one, I chose "Anne"

The second step is to add overlays such as bocea, fog effect, glitters, chemical burn effect, stars, and many others.
For this one, I chose glitter.

Third and last step is to add a frame. Choose from basic borders to grungy, dirt, Polaroid, and a lot more.

Easy as that, save your photo in the size you like.

I don't usually use the second and last step. I'm just really after the vintage filters and effects. It's pretty much enough already. However, you cannot adjust the tones, hues, and brightness of your photo here. So usually I still use PhotoWonder prior to using this one.

I give this app four stars 
just because I love the vintage filters :P

Android App Review: PhotoWonder

DESCRIPTION (from the Android Market)
Show your perfect image with PhotoWonder ANYWHERE ANYTIME!
PhotoWonder is a fun app to edit pics on mobile.

          • Make cool collage pictures
          • Amazing effects like LOMO, BlueTone and Ageing
          • Lovely stickers and frames
          • Enlarge eyes and smooth skin easily
          • Share photos with the world
          • See editted pics by Review button

PhotoWonder is one of  the first photo-editing apps I've downloaded on my android phone (Samsung Galaxy Mini). Most of the first apps I tried, I deleted already because I wasn't satisfied. PhotoWonder is one of the very few photo apps that stayed in my phone up until now. I love how it practically has everything I want for my basic photo-editing needs. In this review, I'll show you all the basic editing you could do with PhotoWonder in a step-by-step photo set.

 Here, you can apply vignette effect, rotate, crop, adjust brightness,
adjust contrast, and sharpen your image.

Notice the difference?
Here, I already tweaked the Brightness and Contrast of my photo.

In this option, you could do basic touch-ups such us Slimming, Larger Eye Effect, Anti-acne, Better Skin Effect, Fixing Red-eye, Whitening, and even Applying some Blush.

In this option, you can add more life and style to your photo by choosing from various photo effects such as Autumn, Blue Tone, Lomo, Time-Travel, Ocean, and a lot MORE. 

For this photo, I chose the Sweet Effect.

Here, you can add clip-arts and other cute icons on your photo.
Choose from hairbands, eyeglasses, fake mustaches, pre-set texts, balloons, lace frames, and a lot more.

I chose that cute bow-hairband under "Decorations"
I got that cute pair of wings under "Pranks"
They only have pre-set texts such as that cute "Smile" word art above.
It could have been better though if they could allow custom text.
Cute Lace Frame :">


You can also make collages by clicking on the COLLAGE option in the Main Page.

Choose a Layout.
Then choose a background.

Here are some of the photos and collages I created in PhotoWonder:

Five stars for this.

MAIL TIME! Enjoy Membership Card from CarbTrim

Here's the mail, it never fails, 
It makes me want to wag my tail. 
When it comes I want to wail --

Hello there, sweeties!
So last night when I got home, my uncle told me that I've got mail. I was kinda surprised, but I was excited because I just usually get mail when I won a contest or something. Heehee :D

Towards the end of 2011, I answered a survey for CarbTrim on Facebook. CarbTrim is a weight management solution that blocks up to 66% of carbs in the food you eat. This comes in a powdered iced tea form, available in two flavors: lemon and apple. Remember the times when we badly needed and wanted to lose weight, but we just can't resist all the delicious food and we just wish there's a way to get both at the same time? Well, here's the answer! Watch your weight without having to sacrifice your eating pleasures! (For more details, visit their website: http://www.carbtrim.com/home)

This 3rd of February 2012, I received an e-mail from the CarbTrim team notifying me that I have just won an Enjoy® Trial Membership card as a sign of their gratitude for me as a Survey Participant. I wasn't familiar with Enjoy® during that time yet, so I visited their website first. Here's what I got:

Enjoy® is the Philippines' premiere loyalty and privilege marketing program connecting affluent and upwardly mobile Filipino consumers to the country's best dining, nightlife, shopping and lifestyle services.  Enjoy®  members could get over Php 250,000 worth of gifts, savings, and VIP privileges to hundreds of the favorite spots in Manila, Cebu, and Boracay. Their reciprocal membership program further extends privileges to over 200 venues in Shanghai, China; and very soon to other Enjoy programs in Asia.

They offer great perks and discounts from loads of establishments such as Flapjacks, Fruit Magic, Gelatissimo, Italianni's, Krazy Garlik, Mr. Jones, Mrs. Fields, Museum Cafe, Peking Garden, Peri Peri Charcoal Chicken, Red Mango, T.G.I. Fridays, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Tokyo Cafe, Tutti Frutti, 7th High, Opus, Red Box, Fully Booked, Ace Water Spa, Beauty and Butter, Browhaus, Strip, and more!

I really love my Membership card! Although it's just for trial, the bright red card with my name embossed on it in silver makes me feel like a VIP. :>

The digital camera I used was not able to capture and project its actual state of perfection, but when you see it for real believe me, it's one heck of a chic red card. I'm definitely keeping this even after it expires. :>

Thanks so much to CarbTrim and Enjoy® Philippines!
