Oh Hello Deann

Oh yes, I must be a goner. But ever since I have seen her blog, I got inspired to blog again. Welcome to another blog, yep it’s me again. I hope this time, I will get to blog like the old times.

On this blog you will only see more about personal and lifestyle. I’m not sure if I’m going to share some beauty product reviews, but maybe more on reviews perhaps.

About the domain, why Hello Deann? I’m not sure, since I’m a so-called web designer I was thinking of designing the name itself. It was supposedly, Hey Its Deann. Did you get the idea? Lol. Yesterday before I went to sleep, I was exaggerate to buy the domain, I even search for these domain name generators, but none of them can’t help me. There are many domains I was thinking about, but I get to pick at least three:

  1. HeyItsDeann.com
  2. HelloDeann.com
  3. DeannSpeaks.com

There they are, I was thinking of DeannStyles.com too but my boyfriend said, it doesn’t rhyme with my name. So I crossed it out, though I think it’s cool. Hehe!

About the theme, this one is responsive, 2 column theme, but I’ve decided to use the full width of this blog, since I have nothing to add as of the moment. And since I’m a so-called web designer, I get to tweak and add a widget footer sidebar at the bottom, that’s why you are seeing my Instagram photos. This one is temporary btw, but I don’t know when will I make room for another theme. Since I’ve been addicting on buying premium themes now, which I will offer to my WordPress clients someday. :3

2015 New Year’s Resolution

Hi guys! OMG, I can’t remember when was my real last post on this blog. If we are friends on Facebook, you probably saw my status about it. That I will stick on a personal blog, with tagalog-english posts. There will still, be some beauty related post. Well I just realized that, why am I doing a beauty blog? Was it for the competition? Since a lot of girls doing a beauty blog, where you just bought a beauty product review and post it in your blog? Is that it? It made me realize, when you review those things, you aren’t one of them already. If only I can share more about my realization last year.

First of all, 2 years of working as an Online Freelancer, I didn’t get to save up. When I read the “I Wish They Thought Money in High School”, it taught me things that I should do when I’m still young. And how can I taught my child, how to save money even if they are just kids. What I like the most is the Money Map, you should always get at least 20% in your salary and put them in the bank. I’m planning to add this on our account in Metrobank’s Junior Fun Saver’s Club, which I opened for my son and me, good thing about this, is that it has his own passbook. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s why since last year, when I asked my friend, how is she saving up. She told me one thing, the 52 Week Money Challenge. Well since you need to start it at January, I said to myself that I will start next year, which is January 2015. Everything is ready now, on January 9th, I will go to NBI Lrt to get a nbi clearance which is already paid, thanks to their online clearance, now I can also renew my Unionbank EON.

And after that, I will also go to SM Manila to get my new passport, on January 24th. Which will I need, so I can open up a passbook account, up to now I don’t know which bank should I get to save, BDO passbook account only needs P10,000.00 to open and same amount to gets it annual interest which is 0.2500. BPI has the same amount to open P10,000.00 but P25,000.00 for the annual interest which is the same as 0.2500. I’m also thinking just to get the BPI Family Savings Bank passbook, since there’s one branch near our place, same with BPI but the interest rate is doubled 0.500. Anyways, this is a different savings from the 52 week money challenge. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you were in my shoes, what do you think should I get? I bet getting a passport now is not that hard, since I only need it to open up accounts, its hard for me to get these government ids, I only have postal id haha! That’s the fastest id I can only get. I will also, check on how to get hold of an SSS account, I heard from my colleague last 2 years that she get her financial aid when she gave birth to her son. Since, we will conceive a new child in the family when Lain reaches 7yo. I’m excited! And yes, family planning is still the best!

This year is all about saving!

I also have good news! My blog, itsmedeann.com is now back on its feet, she regain her lost rank since April 2014. And now I’m planning to monetize them all with Google Adsense, which everyone is getting a looooot of $$$ from it. $100 is the cashout, and I’m way half of it! I can’t wait to receive my first payment!

I can’t really promise to update this blog often, but I will do so! I hired a writer for my other blogs, so I can keep up with the updates. I will also make a viral/entertainment website, this year but the website would be a secret. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s because of the competition, the personal information is really private.

And also, if you are a mom like me (for the mothers out there), how did you first started, teaching your child the basics? Like writing, coloring, memorizing, etc.. I’m having difficulties with my son, well since me and my partner is in front on our workspaces all the time, we are having a hard time teaching him those. Like he is sooo lazy to learn all of them. Though he knows now how to write his first name. Can you tell me some kind of trick or maybe I should enroll him at the nearest barangay nursery school first? Before enrolling him to a good nursery school near our place, (well I just want to check first if he will be interested and what will be his reaction).

I even bought a star stamp, so he will be encourage to write, lol. And believe me I already bought a lot of materials, even printed them. He is turning 5 this year. This is also included on my new year’s resolution, to give more time to my son, especially he will be attending school very soon. Since this kid haven’t with other kids, he will adjust a lot. Like the other day, he is with the other kids here, he is so happy. Well we never let him play outside with the other kids, without us looking at it, because we are afraid that someone will bully him, which we don’t really like. XD

Another resolution will be, well this one, I know you heard a lot of this from other people, your friends, relatives, etc.. haha! I will be going to gym this year, so I can lose weight or just do some squats in the house instead. Sa totoo lang, ang dami ko kasing nakain last festive, I even cooked Pork Belly Lechon, the first time ha, and grabe it was really delicious! Ayun probably I gained 2kg haha! And grabe, naumay ako sa sarili ko now when I look in the mirror, it’s not right. ๐Ÿ™

As of the moment, I have this thing on my chest, its like “nabibilaukan” though kahit uminom ako ng water, nandun parin siya. My partner said, baka may barado akong ugat, para kasing hangin siya na nandun lang na hindi makalabas. So I might go to the doctor soonest, to check if there’s something, and upon writing this, I’m feeling it now. And it is not right. ๐Ÿ™ Ang gara lang sa pakiramdam..

So this will be the first post of this year! I really hope I can keep up with the money challenge, I always ask my partner to remind me of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Btw, if you can’t keep up with the 50peso increment, you can also try 5, 10, 15, 20, for this challenge. As for me, I think I can do the 50peso increment here! ๐Ÿ™‚

My 2014 Wishlist!

Hey guys! I know Iโ€™ve been missing in action for a month now, itโ€™s because Iโ€™m losing my interest in blogging lately. Iโ€™ve decided to just stick around and do personal blogging instead. That I donโ€™t need to compete, to be a beauty blogger just like anyone else wants. I will be still doing reviews but not the same as before, which I have to do it. This time, whenever I feel like it, then I will review it! No more hassle for me! Anyways, thatโ€™s just a quick update, I will tell you more about it soon!

Before 2014 ends, I have compiled some of my โ€œMe Wantsโ€ before the year ends. This is just some girly stuff and the kid inside of me. No gadgets included, because I wonโ€™t get those in just 2 months lol.

  • Babyliss Pro Perfect Curl โ€“ This one cost around P2,500 here in our country, this one is different from the Miracurl itself, which is really expensive, I heard it was P8,000 + if you havenโ€™t heard about this baby, well what are you doing! Head over to Youtube and see for yourself!
  • Naturactor Cover Face Concealer โ€“ Beauty Bloggers been raving about this product, and up to now, I canโ€™t get my hands on these babies, Iโ€™m planning to get 2 shades, one to lighten up my skin and the green one to cover the red blemishes.
  • Iโ€™ve been looking for shoes in ZALORA Philippines since last month, I actually bought a pair last August? I think. And now Iโ€™m looking for women’s espadrilles, I actually find it comfortable to wear, so Iโ€™m still checking what to have.espadrilles
  • Pressure Cooker โ€“ Haha! I know this is ridiculous to include on my wishlist, but hey Iโ€™m the Chef on my own kitchen here!
  • Computer Table โ€“ Ever since we moved, my boyfriend uses a plastic table just the usual one you see around restaurants lol.
  • Intel i3 Processor โ€“ I want to upgrade our computerโ€™s processor, since itโ€™s using AMD Processor which is quite old now, the unit was bought last 2010, though the Motherboard is new, because it got broken last year.

I actually wanted to add the Karaoke thing, but last month, I bought a speaker which is really loud! Itโ€™s a speaker that has a microphone input! So we are just using the computer to find karaoke pieces on Youtube and voila! Instant Karaoke! ๐Ÿ™‚ I also bought a microphone that day, it costs me, P1,999 for the subwoofer and P499 for the microphone.

How about you, what are you planning to buy this coming holiday? ๐Ÿ™‚

September Update Week 2

Hello guys! Sorry for the lack of update again, and this post was supposedly posted yesterday. I promised that I will post the weekly update on Mondays. But here I’ am again, procrastinating! Anyways, I will tell again the story behind the photos in bullets. ๐Ÿ™‚

POST WEEKLY

Top Photos L-R:

  • While I was browsing photos on my phone, I saw this chibi version of me. It was from one of my readers abroad, she’s a fellow pinay though. Anyhow, I noticed that she is great in drawings, and she asked me if she can draw me. I said okay, of course. I think this was 2011-2012. I remember that, this is my style on clothing and my hair was like that too. ๐Ÿ˜›
  • Google sent my pin from my old house, so I’ve decided to request another mail, I generated the mail last 8/11, I think? And I just got it last 9/14 and now my Google Adsense account is fully active. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • I just landed another job on Elance! And I think this will be a long term job, same rate as my current job and I started for 5-10hours weekly.
  • It was Saturday, that I’ve asked my boyfriend to go to Quarrybay (a dimsum restaurant near our place), since I haven’t cook anything. We went there at almost 10PM.
  • After that, we’ve decided to take home some of our favorite dimsum. My favorite is the Taosi Spareribs! I drink a half can of Red Horse for my menstruation. p.s/ my period started yesterday! Would you believe that?! This is my first ever period, since June 2011! ๐Ÿ˜€

Bottom Photo L-R:

  • Supposedly gone to BDJBox Event that happened in SM North Edsa, but the weather is so bad, that I’ve decided to stay in my place. I can’t afford to go there, bringing my 2 boys with me, with that heavy wind+rainfall. Then I’ve decided to practice putting on Puppy Dog Eyes. Swatched some products, did product shoots for reviews… will post about the look this week. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • On the same day, I took the paper bag, where the products for review are in one bag. So I saw this from @sophialove yes they offer skin care products as well. And I can’t wait to try the coffee bar soap, everything I have is for anti-cellulite, sounds promising right? ๐Ÿ™‚
  • For a gloomy weather who doesn’t like to eat this? I remember the bagyong Sendong, my classmates prepare that, and it was really delicious haha!
  • I made Graham Balls, at first I thought it was really easy, but it was really tiring, imagine your hands is full and it was really sticky. This will be the first and last I will make them lol.
  • Pancakes with Syrup! I cooked some today.

That’s it! I hope you enjoy reading my post here, promise I will be more active next week! ๐Ÿ™‚ Expect more reviews this week!

Shoutout! Happy Birthday to my late Kuya! IMY!! He turned 38yo, today. ๐Ÿ™‚
