My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software (Review and Giveaway)

First SmileBox, then Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and now… My Memories Suite! Digital scrapbooking is really fun and exciting to the point that my actual scrapbooking materials remained untouched at home. Since I spend most of my time in front of the computer, focusing on digital scrapbooking is way faster and more convenient than doing the traditional handicrafts. Both are rewarding in so many ways though. So I’d love to them both… I wish I have more than 24 hours a day to channel these creative ideas of mine! Especially that there are so many special occassions to celebrate! Wedding, anniversaries, graduation, name it!

For one, my bestfriend is getting married this April and I’ve just finalized the design of their wedding invitation. I’m planning to create a wedding scrapbook for her using My Memories Suite as an additional gift. I also want to surprise my parents with some memorabilia since they will be celebrating their 26th wedding anniversary this March 18th. Up next is my youngest sister’s graduation. You know how a kid gets excited about that and asks you to take more photos of her? Lol. She’s like that and I’ll have to use my DSLR again to get gorgeous shots.

Ok, since I don’t have the photos yet, I’ll just conceptualize my layout. I’ve been browsing online to get more inspiration. There are lots of digital scrapbooking kits to choose from and this may be confusing at times. With My Memories Suite, you’ll never run out of ideas and you’ll definitely get the best result!

Until now, I keep on updating the latest album I’m working on because it’s just too hard to resist adding embellishment and trying other templates or designs:

Affordable Accessories at Saizen Japanese Store

It’s been a while since I last visited Saizen and it was when I bought MTG deck boxes. Now, I have a stash of red and pink deck boxes at home!

Saizen items are all priced P85 each! Amazing, right? What more with their ongoing clearance sale for P25 on participating items while supplies last?!

If only I have a place of my own… I could grab those home decor, gardening stuff and more without having second thoughts! There are lots of good things to buy but I just focused on those that I can really use. I bought fashionable gloves and scarf, socks and stockings, seat cushion, and a shade that resembles the replica ed hardy that I’ve found online. I also bought pajama for my youngest sister! I’ll shop again next time because there are more items I’d like to buy! Kawaii stuff!

Going Crazy Over Coupons

I’m receiving daily deals from Ensogo and Groupon but I rarely open them in my inbox. Not until one of the message says, “Only P250 for a ticket to “The Goddesses of Rock” Barbie Almalbis & Kitchie Nadal concert at Area 05 Superclub/Concert Hall” as the subject. It’s not about the 50% discount but the union of two Pinay Rock royalties which caught my attention. My boyfriend is a big fan of them so I’d like to treat him to the one-night-only musical event entitled “The Goddesses of Rock”. This marked my first purchase in a group-buying site.

And it’s truly addictive. I’m now checking the deals daily. And I’m going crazy over big discounts and tempting offers. The impulsive buyer in me would like to click and click and click. Is this the shop ’til you drop online version? Hotel accommodations, spa treatments and restaurant deals appeal to me that much. But I’m staying away from eat-all-you-can promos since I’m a small and slow eater so I won’t definitely get the real worth of my money. Aside from Ensogo and Groupon, sweet-toothed gals like me can visit to get discounted coupons for Shari’s Berries!

PPP: Pampered Pink & Purple (Liz of and Rhonz of

Thanks Nail-a-holics for the manicure (and Beauty & Butter for the foot spa with pedicure!)

I really had a great Thursday with Rhonz! From Starbucks, to Beauty & Butter, to Nail-A-Holics, to Sbarro, to The Body Shop, to SM Department Store and then back to Starbucks. It’s a fun-filled day of pampering, shopping and bonding! Whew, it seems that we can’t get enough of each other. I know there are lots of things to talk about, especially some juicy details to spill. Lol. We had to cut our conversation short by 7:45PM because of my date. Nonetheless, our day has been super productive!  Our meetup has been always like this, jump-packed of activities, laughter and plans of next day out.
