It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No matter how cliché it may sound, I don’t think there’s any other way to describe this Christmas Blog Giveaway. This is probably our best set so far! I won’t delay you guys anymore as I know you’re excited! 🙂
First off, we have an Instax Mini 8 by the awesome people over at Fuji Film Philippines. I’m pretty sure that by now, you either have one or you’ve already seen this on all the social networking sites with friends & relatives having fun with their Instax cameras. Shooting with the Instax Mini 8 is fun because you have an instant tangible souvenir from your trip or get-together. Aside from the Instax Mini 8 unit, they’re also giving away 2 packs of Fuji Instax Mini Twin Pack Instant Film, 2 packs of Fuji Instax Mini Candy Pop Instant Film & 2 packs of the Fuji Instax Stained Glass Instant Film! 🙂 The Candy Pop set has polka dots on the border while the stained glass one has geometric shapes on it. With Instax Mini 8, it’s now easier to spice up your workspace or scrap book! ❤
Next off, we have the hand-crafted Leather Passport Holder by Leather Fellow, another brand by the the trinket-loving My Gilded Nest 🙂 I’ve been going to the 10A Alabama Arts & Crafts Fair & I’ve always been wanting to meet Angela! I finally met her this year & I was able to buy a couple of necklaces & earrings for my sister. Thank you Angela for sharing this lovely passport holder to our readers! It’s just apt that I also have a leather passport holder as I’m writing this, I’m out of town. 🙂
How many of you here are having a hard time pressing those tiny keys on your iPhone? Didn’t you ever wish there was another way to send a message, play a game or draw something? 🙂 Worry not! We’re also giving away a Turquoise Adonit Jot Pro Stylus. I’ve always worried that any stylus might just end up scratching the surface of my phone. But, the Adonit Jot Pro Stylus has a round plastic–a dampening tip–as well as a precision disc that will easily let you pinpoint where you’re really placing your stylus! The Adonit Jot Pro Stylus also has a built-in magnet which can attach itself to the iPad 2 and the new versions of iPad. It’s currently being sold at Php 1,350 per pen. Definitely a good Christmas gift especially for your friends who love games & drawing. (Hint, hint: Me & Ponggo! *raises hands*). It also comes in gunmetal & silver but we’re loving the shade of the pen that we have now. ❤ The Adonit Jot Pro Stylus is also available in Beyond The Box, Digital Hub Jot Min, E-Central Jot, iBook, iCenter, Podworx Power Mac Center, Technoholics The Inbox Store Digital, Walker, Astrovision/Astroplus , Fortress, SM Appliance, Additekh & Banana Telecom.
This is just the first part of our blog giveaway & we’re just getting started! Tell us what you’d like to win in the comments section & get clicking below to earn raffle entries! 🙂

And, speaking of passport, if you were able to read this blog post from a couple of weeks ago, you would have come across the 1 TB Western Digital Hard Drive. Unlike other hard drives, it’s very small (waaayyyy smaller than the journal as you can see in this picture) and it works with USB 3.0 technology so the file transfer is faster. 🙂 It’s also very handy and it doesn’t need its own stand nor bulky adaptor so you can always bring it around. Finally, the WD Ultra My Passport 1TB Hard Drive cloud backup so you don’t have to worry if something happens to your files. 😉
If you guys have been following us on Instagram, you would have seen a glimpse of The Daykeeper. It’s a one-of-a-kind 2014 photographic journal with illustrations by the very creative Katt San Juan. Katt did all the content & lay-out by herself and self-published this journal and I so admire her for doing that. Katt blogs over at Katrina & The Great World and it’s always refreshing to browse at her photos. It has a certain nostalgia and personality to it that makes you want to pause for a while & appreciate the simplest things in life. Every scene is something that looks like it has been lifted from a postcard! I hope that whoever wins (or buys) the journal will also get the same vibe as I did. As I’ve said, if only for this journal, I’d want it to be 2014 already! 🙂
I don’t know how many times I’ve started a blog post with the statements “We’ve been busy.”, “We’ve been crazy busy.” & “We need our life back!” It’s always about deadlines, deliverables, time and time management (or lack of it) *Oops*. Ponggo could attest that ever since I received my Timex watch, it would only leave my wrist when I’m about to sleep. Time is so precious that I always have to make sure I have a time frame for each subject down to the last 30 minutes. When I’m so tempted to stand up, do some social networking hopping, when I set a certain number of hours allotted for a project, it’s easier for me to shun those temptations. So, for this Christmas promo, we’re also giving away a Timex Originals Classic Round Touch of Tortoise worth Php 3,790.00 😉
If you think this is everything that we’re giving away. Nope, we have more prizes to reveal. So, when you’re done following the instructions below, check the site again another day or read the rest of the comics while patiently waiting 😉

Well, it’s almost Christmas and there’s not better way to keep all your happy memories in this elegant & stylish brown leather The School of Satchel journal. The pages have a dot grid so it’s really good for organizing your list and notes or for anyone who loves to doodle like me! 🙂 School of Satchel products are made from 100% high quality genuine Philippine leather too! The winner will have his or her initial printed in gold on the cover just like this 🙂
Finally, we have the I Wish They Taught Money in High School book by Clarissa de la Paz, Sharon Que & Katherine Tiuseco. This book is by the group Lifestyle Upgrade 101. You might have seen some of the doodles on our Instagram page and this is where they all went! For the past few months, I’ve been having a dilemma because I realized that if I quit working or designing, I won’t be able to earn in any other way. I was also calculating how many long days and nights or sleeping hours do I have to sell just to get that dream vacation. The answer is all in the book! It’s about making your passive income grow through investments. I love how they keep their essay not so intimidating especially for non-Finance majors. They always told me they wanted light-hearted doodles because they wanted to make their how-to-get-rich book more accessible to the reader & it definitely is! Actually, thanks to this book I was officially able to curtail my spending & I’m definitely going to meet up with an agency soon to take care of my mutual funds! *Ha!* 🙂
The book has two sides: One side focuses on employees who’d like to make more from their monthly salary and the other one is for business(wo)men who’d like to grow their business! The book also has worksheets for you to list down your goals, dreams & things that you’re grateful for. How do all these come together? Find out when you get a copy of the book. They’re currently being sold at the following Fully Booked branches: Katipunan, Alabang Town Center, Gateway, High Street, Greenbelt 5 & Powerplant! They also deliver nationwide for free 😉
We really hope that aside from getting excited about the giveaway, we were able to come up with some last minute Christmas gift ideas or even gifts for yourself after having worked so hard this year! 🙂
