The day I never thought would come has arrived! When I got an email from Coca-Cola’s marketing team that they would send me some goodies, I didn’t expect anything so huge and I thought, “Cool, Coke products!” but when I opened the package they had sent me via mail the words Spotify plastered across the red tin can that held the surprise got me so excited, I flipped the top open, ripped through the contents and found a Spotify t-shirt, a limited edition Coke bottle and 5 Spotify cards that had 5 codes in it for me to use and share!
I wasted no time signing up and listening to music, following artists, discovering bands, etc.
For those of you who don’t know, Spotify is the world’s leading online music streaming service (so now you know why I was so excited that it’s finally available in the PH… We are a country that cannot be trusted with all the piracy that goes on here — yet here’s Spotify! Woo!) that can provide you with over 25 million songs within your reach!
Thanks to Coca Cola teaming up with Spotify, Philippine residents can now create an account, browse through songs sorted by genre, mood, themes, specific songs or artists. You can even listen to playlists created by other Spotify users, and exchange lists with each other!
My favorite part is that Spotify is a downloadable program that you can use on your desktop, instead of opening it in a browser like most music streaming sites.
Here’s an example of a playlist I’m currently in the process of making:
So if you’ve got an account, search for my username: camiejuan and follow this playlist if you’re interested in my kind of music! :-)
I also have 5 CODES for an account to be given away, so the first 5 people to reply down below with their email addresses will be sent 5 codes! :)
Happy Spotify-ing! :-)
9 iPhone App Favorites
"What are your favorite iPhone apps?"
The most common question I get on ask.fm. These apps shown above are the ones that I open at least once a day. So, without further ado, my 9 favorite apps:
My workspace is finally (somewhat) finished, with the main thing being the DIY wall calendar in the middle made out of washi tape + baker’s twine from HeyKessy — So now I’ve got a huge calendar to plan out my personal + work life, and since it’s so huge, it’s always gonna be staring me at the face. No more excuses for forgetting, and if I still manage to forget, then I’m a hopeless case, aren’t I? … Let’s hope not. That would be really sad. Anyway, this isn’t completely final, I’ve actually moved around some stuff and I still have prints that will go up on the wall. Not entirely sure if I fancy those to photos on either side… But you get the idea!
Mansy, the owner of the shop and overall awesome crafter (as well as jewelry maker/potter/paper cutting artist — phew! Click on her name to check out her blog because her work is making me feel all jealous and amazed at the same time), was kind enough to send me some goodies to help start me off with dipping my toes into the DIY world.
Goodies she sent me: washi tape, baker’s twine, and 2 masking sticker sets (which you can use on your planners or calendars!)
I currently have their website open, going through the shop, looking for which items I want to purchase next — I’m eyeing the glitter washi tapes! Also, I’ve been wanting to try rubber stamp carving and they have carving tools for it, but I’m currently trying to finish an embroidery project I started on (and spent a lot of money on, so I cant just abandon that project!), so one project at a time, por favor!
So a big thank you to Mansy of HeyKessy for helping me bring my work space and wall calendar to life!
Here’s to more DIY projects in the future!
HeyKessy is on Facebook & Twitter, follow them to stay updated!
