Win $45 cash from Mukhang Pera’s Follow Me Giveaway : Ends 01/23

It’s been awhile since I last signed up as a sponsor in a giveaway. With the emerging of Rafflecopter (will be writing a review and tutorial on this on my geek blog), it’s now easier and efficient to host giveaways and also more convenient for people to join. I’ve been wanting to be a sponsor for one of those Rafflecopter giveaways, so when I learned about Mukhang Pera’s Follow Me giveaway, I filled up the form and became one of the sponsors.


In tihs giveaway, you can win $45.00 cash that will be sent through Paypal. I know the prize may not be enough to buy you one of those metal buildings or the latest gadget you’ve been wanting, but it sure can help pay the bills. That’s about Php 2,000 in PhP! 😀

The mechanics are pretty easy since most of them are just following the sponsors on Facebook, Twitter, etc. To join, you can either click on the banner above.

Giveaway ends on January 23rd, Monday, so you still have time to catch up. You’ll never know when lady luck’s on your side. 😉

Oh, by the way, stay tuned for my upcoming beauty product reviews. It’s been a really busy past 2 weeks for me because of my new work, but I think I’m adjusting well.

And don’t forget about my second anniversary giveaway here soon. 🙂

Review: Crumpler Messenger and Camera Bags

Among the many things I don’t mind spending my money on are shoes and bags. I believe that for me to get the quality and durability I need, I should put a premium on them. That is why up until now, I still have most of my bags and shoes with me because I truly paid for products that I know will last me a long time. And this is one of the guarantees that Crumpler has to offer.

A few days ago, I was sent these items for review and upon seeing them, I couldn’t wait to check each one out – from the inner corners of the compartments of the bags up to the tiniest details such as the seams. Just from the look and feel of these bags, you can tell they were truly made of high quality materials that Crumpler is known for.

Let me introduce you to the Crumpler messenger bags first – The Hoax, The Barney Rustle Blanket, and Western Lawn. These 3 bags have the Dual Quick Release Compression Straps pictured above which makes it easy for you to adjust the length of the strap, whether you want to quickly transform it to a shoulder or sling bag.


Crumpler The Hoax Messenger Bag

Among the 3 messenger bags I got for review, this one has the widest space inside. It comes in 2 different colors and the one I chose was the red splatter; the other one’s in yellow.

Just like the other messenger bags on this feature, The Hoax has Dual Velcro Flap Fasteners (dual injection moulded velcro fasteners) that make sure that the bag’s front flap is securely covered. This bag doesn’t have a zipper to close the main compartment, but from the tests I did on it, it was pretty safe to put valuables in here. If you’re still not comfortable, you can use the inside pockets that are also equipped with the same velcro fasteners.

By the way, the 2 gray strips on the front flap are reflective stripes which can help when you’re riding a bike or motorcycle while on the road. 🙂

This retails at Php 5,950. The list of stores is listed below this post. 🙂

Beauty Haul and Upcoming Reviews + Giveaway Teaser

For the past 6 months, I have been completely hooked on online shopping for different makeup products. I also have been joining giveaways where the prizes are cosmetics. I’m loving trying out these products to see what works for me and so expect for more beauty product reviews coming out soon. And, since this blog, Pinay Reviewer, will be celebrating it’s SECOND anniversary. Last year, I didn’t get to celebrate it because it coincided with our food blog’s giveaway. This time, I’ll make sure to give this blog its much-deserved anniversary celebration.
