Tangle-free! (Part 1 of Organized – Me Series)

Welcome to Organized-Me blog series, a series of blogs about stuff I use (and love) that keep my room, workplace, and bags organized. People who are close to me know I don’t like clutter, so I always organize my stuff with help from a few items. So what are those items? Stay tuned…. (.^_^.)

Don’t you just love gadgets? Who doesn’t?

For busy people like me, gadgets are really a blessing, as they make my work easier. I’m not the type of person who owns only one gadget; it’s just not possible.

But several gadgets also means having more….CORDS!

Picture this: You need to get a charger/USB cable among your pile of wires and as you pull it out all the other wires cling to that one you need. So the next few minutes becomes a detangling war between you and your other cords. Happened to me a lot before. And don’t get me started when you go traveling with those wires….

Well not anymore!

I already bid tangled-cords scenarios goodbye since I used Rilakkuma Cord Winders and Leaf Tie Cable Organizers.


Rilakkuma Cord Winder (I use this one for my computer power cord)

The Rilakkuma is soooooo cute! Kikay. (.^_^.)


Leaf Tie Cable Organizer (keeps the speaker cords from tangling with the power cords and my feet at my office)

Thanks to these babies I never have to waste time detangling cords from each other before I pull them out of their respective boxes.

See how my cord storage boxes seem hassle-free?

I want you organized too, so grab your own Rilakkuma cord winder/Leaf cable ties and start organizing your gadget cables now! These wonders are available locally at my store PocketScents.

Remember:

Good order is the foundation of all things.– Edmund Burke

Don’t agonize. Organize.– Florence Kennedy

Let’s all be organized together! Haha! (.^_^.) Ciao

Adobe® Photoshop® Touch

Hello everyone! I’ve been so busy lately I wasn’t able to blog. So busy that I can’t even open my store. Darn. Well at least I’m not idle. Haha! Anywaaaaay…..back to the subject….

If you are a shutterbug with an iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone, then this post is for you.

Natural (raw) pictures are nice, but there will always be instances when you need to do photo editing. And what is the most popular software for that? Abobe Photoshop!

iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone owners can now enjoy some of the features of the Adobe Photoshop thru Adobe Photoshop Touch. It’s not free, unfortunately. But at least it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, unlike the CS6, hahaha! And, these apps are a good stepping-stone if you want to use more complicated but feature-packed Adobe software in the future.

Here are some of my test shots:

Before:

After: (using Effects – Graphic Pen)

Before:

After: (using Effects – Pencil and Add Text, I decreased the opacity to lessen the pencil effect)

Before:

After: (You can make an item stand out in a picture by using Paint and increasing/decreasing saturation levels)

Before:

After: (Using Watercolor Paint, by the way this is my favorite photo out of the bunch)

Using the iPad is more ideal for this software because of its large screen. If you’re using a stylus – much better. Making delicate photo editing on the iPod Touch or iPhone may be more difficult.

It may be difficult to use at first, but with practice it’ll be easier especially if you’re already familiar with the buttons.

There are so many more things you can do with your photos using Adobe Photoshop Touch. I haven’t explored all its features, but hopefully I’ll master them in time, and I hope you do too.

Struggling with Photoshop Touch? Give Adobe Photoshop Express a try (I’ll be blogging about it too – soon), it’s less complicated than Touch.

Thank you for reading my post! (.^_^.)

Audrey

Nope. Audrey is not a person.

It’s a Louis Vuitton speedy 25 bag.

Yes I’m one of those people who assign names on their belongings, and no, I don’t name them all, that would be absurd. (.^_^.)

Why Audrey anyway? I purchased this bag because the birth of the speedy 25 is attributed to one of my favorite icon ladies of all time: Audrey Hepburn.

(photo courtesy of coquette.blogs.com)

The smallest bag way back then was the speedy 30. Though Audrey Hepburn liked the style, she found it too big for her liking so in 1965 she asked Henri Louis Vuitton to make a smaller version of the speedy. Hence, the speedy 25 is born. The bag was linked to her name ever since.

Having a bag like Audrey Hepburn….yey! (speechless na, I dunno what happened, haha!)

 

A bag like this is a good investment because it increases in value. And because it is one of the iconic, classic it-bags (like Hermes Birkin and Chanel 2.55), it will never be out of style. What I really like about this bag is it’s really versatile, you can pair it with your casual wear or go formal with it. It’s also a good traveling tote because this small bag can actually pack more stuff than you think.

If you’re a lady looking for a classic bag then you really should consider getting one of these.

Well, I guess that’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed reading this.  Stay tuned for more posts, folks. Thanks for stopping by. (.^_^.)

I love my Travalo!

Ahoy perfume aficionados out there!

We perfume lovers want to smell good all the time, so we tend to re-spritz our fragrances when we’re away from home. The same applies when we travel, we always want to bring our favorite scents with us.

But what if we can’t bring our favorite perfumes with us due to reasons like airline restrictions, or because the whole bottle doesn’t fit in our bag or it’ll add unnecessary weight? Disappointing, right?

Thank goodness I discovered this:

Meet the latest addition to my kikay kit: my Travalo Excel Refillable Atomizer in light pink. It’s cute right? It looks just like a lipstick! Thanks to this cute little thing I can bring my favorite perfume (Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker) everywhere I go. By the way, it can hold up to 5 ml or 50 sprays. What’s amazing about Travalo atomizers is that you can fill it with perfume with no hassle at all. So how do you fill your Travalo? Here’s how:

I love the way my Travalo helps me economize my perfume. I know the ad says it can hold up to 50 sprays, but I think it can hold up to more than that. Or maybe I just think that way because I only press the spray pump halfway, I dunno. Haha! With this atomizer I also observed that most of my perfume when spritzed (full pump, not halfway ha) lands on my skin. There are other atomizers that disperse some (or most) of your perfume in the air, and I find that wasteful.  Hey, authentic perfumes are expensive, so we just wanna make every drop count, right? (.^_^.)

You’ll know when you’ll run out of perfume because the other side of the Travalo has a shatterproof clear window, so you can see how much perfume is left inside.

So what are you waiting for? Get your own Travalo! It’s available in malls, imported stores, or if you’re in Malaybalay City you can visit my store PocketScents and purchase one. I have available Travalo atomizers in Classic or Excel.

Stay tuned for more posts about my latest items or events. Thanks for stopping by. (.^_^.)

PocketScents

Want to buy your favorite perfume but a whole bottle is just too expensive?

Can’t buy more than one perfume because your budget can’t afford it?

Or is that 1 whole bottle of perfume adding weight to your already-heavy bag?

 Well PocketScents has the solution for the aforementioned problems!

Now you can purchase your favorite perfumes in retail and in cute bottles so it’s made affordable and easy to carry anytime, anywhere!

PocketScents is a perfume refilling station located in Tabios Street, Brgy. 5, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. Established last December 2009, it started out as a garage sale store selling used clothing, sports equipment, and bottles of perfumes. Now the store is selling perfumes in retail and one whole bottle (via order), shoes, accessories, clothes, and fashionable bags.

If you’re confused because you can’t decide what perfume to buy or you don’t know what type of perfume you want, don’t worry. I will personally assist you and help you decide. Since customer satisfaction is one of my priorities, I make sure that I provide testers so customers can determine whether a perfume suits them or not.

Just because a perfume smells nice on one person doesn’t mean it will smell the same on you. Different people have different body chemistries so it’s important to test the perfume on the skin before buying it. This is why I let customers try the perfume before buying – so they can really make sure they are buying a perfume that they really want and it’ll make them smell great! No blind purchases.

If you are looking for a store that sells authentic perfumes in retail come visit my store at DJM Arcade, Tabios Street, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. My store is open from Monday to Friday, 10:00 am to 12:00 noon, and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. You could also visit and like my page on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/PocketScents/192679710745896).

Hello world!

Hi everyone! Princess Salvia here.

To create a blog is just one of my to-do projects this year. One project done (yey)!

Honestly I’m reluctant to even try making a blog site because I thought creating one is really complicated for an average techie like me. But thanks to the magazine, The Blogger’s Book: The ultimate guide to WordPress, Tumblr and Joomla, I realized that it’s quite easy! This blog site was actually created in less than 3 minutes. I’ll soon post about the aforementioned magazine in my succeeding posts.

Stay tuned for posts about gadgets, perfumes, bags, accessories, events, places and many more!

That’s all for now. We have a Testimonial Dinner and Acquaintance Party to be attended by students and faculty of the Bukidnon State University College of Law this evening. Gotta prepare. Ciao.
