Spread the Wonders of Beauty

I was born in a generation where technology, fashion and music is a standard platform to become acceptable within the circle. The kind of music that I listen to are usually what is trending online. My friends and I spend our time chatting in the social media where we can gasp on the news update easily. I came to live a life where everything is done by just one click in our phones and tablets.


One of the best things that I love with our technological era is I get to do what I love most—making music and ringtones. My parents provided me everything from my basic needs to my wants. I came to explore the beauty of music when I was entering my adolescent stage.


I was fond with R&B and house music where my friends and I usually party a lot with this kind of music. I also became aware of my body image at that stage. I become self-conscious and very detailed when it comes to fashion. I love collecting music and fashion online magazine. I usually browsed them before I went to sleep as long as my eyes weren’t hurting.


One day my friend invited me to attend her upcoming party where we need to dress up on our sexiest attire ever. I was very excited and furious at the same time since I started gaining weight when I entered my young adulthood stage already. I still have one month before the party that is when is started browsing online which can help me lose some of my weight.


I bought this very gorgeous lacy black dress that perfectly fit with my lean and curvy body. My friends was very amazed on how I look very exceptional with my new figure and keep on asking me about my secret.

Mixes and Cocktails with You

Mixes and Cocktails with You

I don’t know if I’ve shared this information with my readers yet but sometimes, I get paid to make ringtones for a few of my friends. I’ve found it to be an easy and fast way to make a few dollars that I like to save in case I feel the need to splurge on something I really want.

I honestly do not spend that much so I usually have quite a lot saved which is a really good thing especially since I don’t really know a lot of people who like to save at this age anyways. Most of my friends enjoy going out and drinking but I’m more of a home buddy and I spend most of the weekends indoors watching tv or surfing the internet.

Recently, I was able to save up some money which I intend to use to buy something for my older brother.

I’ve known for quite a while that electronic cigarettes are safer to smoke as compared to regular tobacco cigarettes since they don’t burn and they don’t give off as many harmful chemicals either. Of course, I told him that I’m not encouraging him to smoke but rather, hinting that maybe he should take things down a notch. This mixture is awesome when used with a cocktail.

To say the least, he was thrilled to find out about the different solutions that you can incorporate in them and couldn’t wait to start using it. They come in a lot of radical flavors like German Chocolate Beefcake, Jawbreaker and even Lemon Bar. Not that I’m a fan of smoking of any kind but it is pretty cool if you think about it.

I’m really glad that I was able to do that for my brother because he means a lot to me and so does the rest of my family, as well. So I’m really hoping that this would encourage him to stop his bad habit and consider a much healthier lifestyle.

So that’s basically how my week has gone so far. Little acts of kindness that hopefully go a long way in the future.

I know I’m still young but I hope that everyone else tries to do little acts of kindness for the people they love, as well.

Break The Halls with Music

I feel like I need to work a little bit harder on my blog titles. Obviously, that hasn’t been my strongest point since I started blogging here but oh well. I’m more enticed to start writing anyways rather than thinking about something to headline my entries. But if anyone wants to give me a title writing 101 session then by all means, be my guest!

So I finally realized one of the suckiest things that could ever happen to someone who likes to make ringtones like me, it’s breaking your phone! Yes, stupid me, I broke my phone but no worries- I found a site where people sell broken phones so hopefully I can dispose of it faster than I had thought.

Since I accidentally dropped in the toilet one hung over morning, the audio has been all busted and I can no longer hear music on it. Can you imagine making ringtones for your phone but not being able to hear it? It’s just ridiculous.

So I have to sell it and hopefully have enough Christmas money to buy a new one and hopefully, I’ll have enough money to upgrade my current unit.

Everything else on the phone works perfectly fine, it’s just the audio that went berserk so I hope someone can buy it from me at a reasonable price. I know sometimes people can be so stingy when it comes to prices online so we’ll just have to see about how that goes.

Next weekend is gonna be really busy as we’ll be travelling to meet our family in another city. Thankfully we got a new van this year so it’ll be so much more roomier in the car when we travel. I can snooze in peace and not worry about my brother slobbering all over me in the car.

My Influential Friends for Online Marketing

My Influential Friends for Online Marketing

My friends have been very influential part of my life. They’ve always been there for me and I find them an integral part of my well being.

I have a habit of assigning particular ringtones to specific people on my phone and one song that lets me know that it’s my friends who are calling me on my phone is Bruno Mars’ song Count On Me. It talks about a lot of things but I feel like the main subject of the song is really about friendship.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that people will always have something going on in their life like how I always have something going on with me, music and my incessant need to make ringtones for fun. But no matter what, at the end of the day, what’s important is that we are surrounded by the people we love and who love us. For me, those are my friends and of course, my family.

I try my best to let my friends know how much they mean to me and they’ve heard me play this song to them during a few of our jamming sessions when we just gather around someone’s den and play music for fun. It’s an upbeat song and we like to play it no matter how mainstream it is. The important thing about music, mainstream or not, is that the message of the song is loud and clear and the beat is catchy. Which is mostly why I have nothing against popular artists. Art is art, no matter what. That’s also something that my friends and I have come to realize over our many long conversations.

So I hope those who are reading this has a friend or friends that they can dedicate this song to because it’s a beautiful song and it does remind us all to be lucky and grateful for the people we have in our lives. Sometimes we might not realize it but if we just stop for a while, we’ll realize how lucky we all are one way or another.

Avoid Frustration With Ringtones

Since I started my download site, I’ve created thousands of ringtones that are readily available for everyone. These tones can be categorized as free and paid tones that anyone can have access to. Sometimes, it can get frustrating when you’ve created something and thought that it will be a hit and suddenly turns out to be a bust.

When creating ringtones, I really never think of whether the particular tone will be downloaded the most or not. What I really care about is doing what I love, and that is to create ringtones. However, there are times when you’re working on something that you really loved and have placed so much effort into its creation, and ended up not being downloaded by anyone.

This was also the case when I started my download site. It was only made to showcase my ringtones and  have them in downloadable format. Most of my downloaders know that I never charged a dime for most of my creations. However, there were these exceptional tones I made, which are being sold for less than a dollar.

It was never my intention to sell premium ringtones. Unfortunately, maintaining my download site required some cash, and I needed to charge a small amount for some tones to keep my site up and running. A couple of months after selling premium tones, I’ve managed to maintain my site and keep it funded until next year. These premium downloads also gave me the chance to maintain my lifestyle, which is not more than a few bucks every day.

If there is one very important lesson that I’ve learned from ringtone creation, it is to never expect anything when you work on something. If you are passionate with what you do, make sure that you are going to do everything to make it the best that you can possibly make. Being passionate with what you do, ensures that you’ll never get frustrated with the result, because the process of creation is what you enjoy the most.

Certified Music and Video Game Lovers

I am a certified music lover. Even my parents said that to me 10 years ago. My mom shared to me that I always asked for her Nokia phone when I was a kid because I loved composing ringtones. She even mentioned that there were also times when she’s getting annoyed because she’s not aware that I already changed her ringtone.


There are so many memories that 90s kids can bring. I used to think that the moon was following me when I was a kid. And then the dream of becoming an astronaut arose. I wished I had gone to the moon. But everything changed as I grew older. My dream shifted from becoming an astronaut to a pilot; a pilot to an accountant; an accountant to a journalist. I wanted to be everything that I could be. And all of these started when I was a kid.


The memories of childhood are priceless – the video games you played, the candies you shared, the outdoor activities you enjoyed. These are only some of those nostalgic moments that will never be taken away from you no matter where you go and what you become.


The best things about childhood are beginnings. When you were little, you started building your dreams. You experienced first t times – first crush, first best friend, and first heartbreak. But despite all, everything seemed so innocent at the time.


I did not need to send an angry mob outside my house back then. You’d feel my sentiments for beepers being legendary. But my Nokia 3210 sealed the deal for 90s when it was released in 1999. It was my third cellular phone and I couldn’t keep my hands of it especially when I had its backlight changed from default green to my favorite clear white.

Why All Men Should Love "Girly" Songs

This is kind of embarrassing to admit but I am totally digging Selena Gomez's new song, The Heart Wants What It Wants right now. I've heard it on the radio once or twice already and I've listened to it a few times on my phone and I've seen the video on Youtube a lot of times already, too. It helps that Selena is really hot, which makes it easier to watch. Just being honest, here. Lol.

Some guys wouldn't appreciate this type of music since it's about a girl pouring out her heart and being extremely vulnerable. When guys do it, people think they're being chivalrous but when a girl does it, she's weak which in my opinion totally isn't true at all.

I love this song because of the raw emotions in it, the melody and the overall effect it was as a whole. I've turned it into a ringtone for my mobile phone already but I think I'll change it soon. Everytime my phone rings, I feel so relaxed that I forget it's my phone ringing in the first place. I don't know about you but I think that ringtones should be a little bit more upbeat and catchy, just so that it catches your attention enough to make you want to check your phone.

Maybe I’ll turn a bit old school and rock some Sum 41 to use as my new ringtone since I know how much my parents hate that type of music. I’ll probably consider it in the last few weeks I have living at home hopefully it’ll make my dad pull his hair out so he can finally start using that Har Vokse supplements that we got him a couple of months ago. He keeps insisting he doesn’t need it but his hairline begs to differ.

Anyways, it’s just the start of the week and a lot of people are still talking about the AMA’s which I hope will end some time soon just because enough is enough. Although I did see one of the celebrity freebie bags!! It always contains these awesome beauty supply supplements and include information like anti aging facial cream reviews.

I’m planning to learn a few more cover songs this week and hopefully be able to jam out to them with my friends, they keep asking me to play Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran which I am more than happy to do. Hopefully I can get a decent recording of our work and post it on my SoundCloud account so you can finally hear my work!
