How to check if your Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) is genuine?

Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505

There are 2 types of Samsung Galaxy S4. The GT-I9500 that can only be used for some countries and GT-I9505, the international version.

Right now I am going to blog about the GT-I9505 which is my phone.

Anyway, so here it goes....

If you wanted to know whether your precious Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 is authentic just scroll down and you will find out how.

For you to be able to know if your phone is genuine you can find out by checking its unique IMEI number, price and the design of your phone. The IMEI number consists of 15 unique numbers's designed for your phone authentication.

IMEI (International Mobile Station Equipment Identity)
You can find the IMEI number in 3 different spots; first is on the box. Second, you can find it inside the battery compartment of the phone. And thirdly, is you can check it on the settings.

If you're still unsure then you can find out by dialing *#06# or check it out here.

The price of the GS4 in the market today is $577.50 on If you seem to find a half price of the retail price of the GS4, then it's too good to be true, probably that's fake.

*The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a bigger and wider screen compared to GS3.
*It's thinner than the SIII.
*Full HD Super AMOLED 126.7mm (5 inch)
*With Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 (upgradable)
*And the reason why the Samsung Galaxy S4 shine is its camera with 13MP

The rest that are not mentioned you can find it here.

By checking out the IMEI number of your GS4, I think that's enough to figure out if your phone is authentic or not.

I hope this is helpful. Please comment below for other questions about the Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505.

Review: AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Body Wash

Hello Everyone!

I'm gonna share with you what my daily moisturizing body wash that I used and how it worked for me but before I start talking let me apologize for not updating my blog for few months. I'm kind of a little busy but now I'm back!

I've been looking for a soap or body wash that suits me. My type of skin is really dry and I've been using a lot of products over the past years and it just didn't work for me at all.

I used lotion too, well first of all I like to use lotion but over time it's just kind of really annoying when you have sticky feeling, sweating sometimes because of the lotion especially you're living in an area that is hot I'm talking about Philippines for example.

So I searched online to see what is a really great product that will actually work for me. I'm not allergic or anything but I just want to use a product that will be great even without using a lot of them. Basically what I'm saying here is an all in one product.

And this product works for me. I'll tell you honestly that I've just used this 2 days since I bought this and all I can say this is so great for me and I think it'll also work for you as well.

Before I even bought it I searched the reviews online to see what people thinks about the products and I say I should try that one too. And here it is the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body wash (picture below)

I really love this one compare to my Dove bar soap. I don't know I just felt like love at first sight with this product. After I use for about 2 days now, yeah I know it's too early to say but that doesn't matter I can see the difference already! My skin is smooth, it's soft and not dry at all anymore.

I love it just like I said a moment ago I felt love at first sight.

For the price is okay for the product. I mean you get what you pay for really. It's a little bit pricey especially here in the Philippines because it's IMPORTED everyone! I didn't regret that I bought this P400.00 body wash, almost but I'm glad I did. Not bad at all.

The bottle is 12 oz. So that's basically 354ml.

This creamy body wash moisturizes for visibly healthier skin every time you shower. The unique AVEENO formula, which combines nourishing oatmeal with rich emollients, helps to lock in moisture, resulting in softer, smoother skin long after you shower.
I really agree with what they say because it leaves my skin smooth after I shower.

I love the smell of it. I don't know I can't explain how it smells. Something like citrus oatmeal combination smell and I'm not really sure. All I can say is I love the smell, period.

I think that's pretty much it, oh if anyone would like to see the ingredients it's down below.

Now I met AVEENO, I'm happy with it and would probably try their other products. I will probably try their shampoo and conditioner, what do you guys think? Please share your thoughts.

Red Rock Hot Spring

It's a very great place to spend time with the families, friends and loved ones. You can enjoy the very peaceful place, the nature, the breathtaking air, the view, relaxation and the hot spring. We've been here yesterday and such a wonderful place to relax.
If this is your first time visiting the place you have to know this:
1.) The road is a bit inclined. If you're riding by motorcycle its fine. By car is better if with families
2.) Transportation. Stated @ no. 1 and also public transportation
3.) You have to bring your own food because they don't have restaurant or any cooked foods to sell but they offer a grilling area were you can make your own food or by bringing cooked meals. How I wish they have a restaurant but you can always bring your foods. And don't forget they also have a little Mini store (sari-sari store).
4.) Bathroom is quite clean

Other information:
Entrance Fee: P20.00
Cottage Price: P200.00

Summer Outfit 2013

Before I start I would like to say: "Happy International Women's Day" to all women! Okay here I go...

Thinking about what to wear for summer? It's just crazy right? Time pass by so quick and yet summer is on its way. Thinking about beach ayy? I am not a fan of going to the beach this summer. Me I would prefer wearing long sleeve and I know that sounds ridiculous. It's because here in the Philippines is very hot (Yes, hot and why wear long sleeves?....) and I would not expose my skin to the sun. Base on my experience it's really hard to even your skin tone. Right now I'm still working at it (skin tone thingy). 

In my opinion about the outfit to wear its not about just trends and fashions, hmm.. a little bit of a trend I suppose but for me its more about what clothes I'm comfortable with and what's available on my closet! LOL!!! We're not just talking about spending here its also about saving. LOL!

Anyway guys! Enough with the talk.. I cut out those Outfits #1, #2 & #3 myself from google just for you guys and I added another 3 outfit for you to check out. I also added a link underneath the photo. So here's something that I would wear or something that I want to wear for summer this 2013! 

Outfit # 1

Outfit # 2

Outfit # 3

I took these 3 photo's (below) from google images just to show you more photo's and selection for those who can't decide what to wear for summer.

I like the picture # 3.. Like like like !!!!

So what do you think?

Stila Coconut Crush Lip and Cheek Stain

I've heard a lot of good reviews about this Stila Coconut crush Lip and Cheek Stain, plus I love the natural color of it so I said to myself why not give it a try?

Right then, I purchased this gorgeous lip and cheek stain last week and just got it today. Well, I am impressed about the product. It is so great on my skin as what I've expected. The product kind of smells like strong but listen, when you apply it on your skin you don't have to worry because the smell goes away. Nothing to worry about.

I tried this first on my cheeks and next to my lips and it does an amazing job. As you've notice guys that "some" (actually I only have 2 lipsticks, LOL) of my lipsticks is nude or natural color is because I love how it looked, so simple, it just popped out your natural beautiful skin with this one. I love natural colors, I don't know why and I will stick with it. That's what my "hiyang" is..

Anyway this Stila Coconut crush lip and cheek stain is great for everybody, any types of skin tone, daily wear, for work, etc...
So here's a close up of me wearing the Stila lip and cheek stain

Review: MAC Freckletone Lipstick Year of the of the snake edition

"MAC Freckletone Lipstick Year of the snake limited edition"

I love this freckletone of MAC because it's very neutral and so natural on your lips. The MAC Honeylove and this MAC freckletone they are in the same family. Its kinda sheer/nude to your lips and it brings out the natural lip color. It's like you're not wearing any lipstick at all.

It is really great on my skin tone especially to those who have lighter skin color I believe. But if you have darker skin tone to the lightest this is perfect for everyday use, day time, for work, summer look etc.,
See pictures below....

MAC Freckletone Lipstick Lustre Year of the snake limited edition. 

Without Lip Gloss

With Nyx perfect Mega shine lip gloss


As part of my daily routine I always use the Lip Balm first before I put my lipstick on I always put this Human Nature Wild berry Lip balm as a base, then followed by the lipstick and lip gloss. I so love this balm it keeps my lips hydrated and smells good too! I've used different kinds of Lip Balm but I don't like how it feels on my lips, have you tried like there's something warm on your lips and its very annoying can't help it. But this Human Nature Lip Balm is very friendly. I love it!

Have a great day!

Review: Mac Honeylove Lipstick

This is one of my favorite lipstick that I used ever. What I like about this lipstick first of all I love the color, the color is kinda nude and when you apply it on your lips it just brings out the natural color of it. This color is definitely for all kinds of skin tone. The second reason what I love about this MAC Honeylove is the smell it's kind of a mild hot chocolate. i don't know what am sayin. I almost think of eating it LOL.

If you're looking for a lipstick that suits for everyday wear, or an interview, for work wear, for summer look that doesn't over power your whole make up and for the simplicity of your lips, well this Mac Honeylove Lipstick is ideal for you.

Picture above: I paired it with my Nyx Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Perfect. The color of this Lip gloss is kinda similar to my MAC honeylove. It's really mega shine though as you can see and it has a millions of shimmer. I love it when I paired those two.

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday Bonita!

Happy Birthday Mom! Our past doesn't really matter, whatever it is we have to forget and move on to our life. Let be the past be our lesson. The present is the most important thing! and today is the day to remember. Even though the celebration isn't grandiose but still a perfect birthday!

11 am today I called her and asked her what's the size of her foot and what color she like. On that moment when I asked she figured out what's on my head (its very obvious). I am planning to give her a little present just to make her happy. So this morning I bought her a pair of Havaianass and a leopard printed dress, a necklace. Of course a special person should receive a special gift with a little birthday card. I put them all together at the box (sandal, dress, necklace and the card) with a special wrapping. Few hours I went at the store to give her present and she was very surprise and happy! I've never seen her happy just like that. She thanked me and hug me saying "Thank you Ellaine" and my heart just melt. No words can explain.  Even my gift is not that surprising as everyone does but for my Mom its enough. Whatever little things I gave her, she really appreciate it and treasure it. That's how I love her.

Later this afternoon I gave her another surprised, a makeover. We went at some local salon here in our place to Rebond Treatment ( I dont know how you called it ), a foot spa, of course Manicure and Pedicure too. Well she really transformed.. Can you believe that she's my Mom? Take a look....

Before the makeover

Everybody thinks that we're sisters. LOL. but its fine with me. And of course we had dinner at the restaurant and full ourselves. Perfect evening! That's all I can say.

Happy Birthday Mom! You did it again!

Here's a song to Mom!!!

Contest: Electrolux HUSH Happier at Home

Best Weekend Ever!

As part of the Filipino tradition, spending its weekends with the family is much even better. Either going out together with the family, picnik, shopping together or even relaxing, enjoying the time together at home. I would embrace spending our time together with the family at home because its ideal, realistic and less spending I suppose. For me it's all about the time and happiness you share.

I am a wife that loves to cook especially to my husband. I couldn't forget the best weekend spending my time together with my husband at home. On that night, me and my hubby were thinking what to do because we couldn't sleep early. So I was thinking "how about a movie marathon?" Then he said "sure, lets do it". Later that night we drove downtown and dropped by at the nearest rental movies. We rent different kinds of movie. Me myself I love thrilling movie, suspense and horror. So I got myself 3 different kinds of horror movies and my husband loves action movies, so he get himself 3 different action movies then we have a deal that we will watch the movie together. As we got the movies, we dropped by at some convenient store and bought chips and drinks. As we arrived home, we sat our butt at the bed, open the chips and drinks and lets start the movie marathon!

During watching the movie I couldn't help myself scream, we're laughing together, commenting about the filming and we enjoy every moment of it. After watching all those movies, and its already morning after we finished watching we finally fall asleep. For me, that's the best weekend ever!

I would love to use Electrolux at home. I know, I've never vacuum our house because we don't have one. I would really be much happier if I won one of their prices!
