starbucks coffee planner 2017

Aside from the gifts I receive during the holiday season, I've been looking forward to getting a Starbucks planner each year. I've been a fan of their planners ever since and I like the thrill of collecting stickers to get a planner. I like the designs from the previous years but I think these year's designs will be on top of my list.

On November 2, you can start collecting stickers for the 2017 Starbucks Planners. There are two different designs for you to choose from - The Coffee Stain and The Blue Siren.

The Starbucks Coffee Stain planner has brown watercolor paintings and coffee beans. It comes with a brown pouch with a gold coffee logo and a zipper. It's simple and elegant.

The Blue Siren planner, on the other hand, is very colorful with jade, aqua, and teal colors. It has an embossed pattern of gold Starbucks stars that really stand out. It also has a blue pouch with a Siren's tail and gold zipper.

These planners come with stickers, a magnetic coffee bookmark, discount coupons, and an erasable pen. I am excited to collect stickers and own even just one Starbucks Planner for next year but I might collect more stickers so I can have both designs! :)

If you want to own one too, follow these terms and conditions.

OPPO Philippines Davao Bloggers Society

OPPO invited the Davao Bloggers Society and other media friends to their regional media gathering last October 6. We were so excited to learn more about their latest addition to their F1 phone series. In fact, it's their first time to launch in Davao City!
OPPO Philippines Davao Bloggers Society



The OPPO F1S debuted in the Philippines last August 19 and they call it the "Selfie Expert" because it takes great selfies.
Amazing selfies anytime, anywhere!

With its 16-megapizel front-facing camera, you'll surely enjoy taking high-quality photos of yourself. It also has a 1/3.1-inch sensor and a large f/2.0 aperture. No need to edit your selfies because it also has a Beautification app and an Auto Mode Screen Flash.
A Panorama feature and a palm-activated shutter are added so taking "groufies" will be more convenient. It is also equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera that has its own plug-ins such as the upgraded Expert Mode, Ultra-HD, GIF, and Double Exposure.

Powerful, speedy, beautiful
The F1s uses fingerprint recognition that can unlock the phone in 0.22 seconds. The phone’s fingerprint-activated app launch assigns fingerprints to up to five apps or contacts for quick access through the home button.
An octa-core processor backed by a 3GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, and the ColorOS 3.0, adds power to the phone’s hardware. Thanks to the power optimizations of the ColorOS combined with a 3075mAh battery, users can hope to use the phone all day.
The sleek metal body of the F1s has a 5.5-inch 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen to create an exceptional gaming and movie experience for users.

Available at zero percent interest
Financial service provider Home Credit, OPPO’s longtime partner, is also offering the F1s at zero percent interest for six months. The promo kicked off on the first day of the F1s in stores.
The smartphone’s suggested retail price is PhP12, 990. That's a huge deal for a great phone like this! Visit any OPPO Stores today to get a hands on of the new F1S phone.
