After a long time, I have finally decided to make a book review again. I've been busy at work for the past months. But because reading has been a part of my life, I decided to read a book to ease the boredom during vacant times. 
Here's a review to Nicola Yoon's Everything Everything.


My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

In a study released by IDC in January, the number of PC gamers will spike to 700 million by 2019.[1]Total revenue in high-end gaming PCs alongside all-in-one PCs is expected to grow by nearly five percent annually despite the 10.6 percent decline in PC shipments during the fourth quarter of last year.[2] Lenovo, the world's number one PC maker, leverages on the renewed interest of serious gamers and releases powerful gaming PCs in two form factors: the Lenovo ideacentre AIO 700, a stylish all-in-one PC for whole-family fun; and the ideapad Y700, a cutting-edge laptop for game-anywhere convenience.

Michael Ngan, Country General Manager of Lenovo Philippines said, "The company is strongly committed to developing products designed both for productivity and entertainment. The Lenovo ideacentre AIO 700 and ideapad Y700 are equipped with powerful technology, high-definition graphics and high-capacity memory that allow users to work hard and play harder."

The interest of many gamers has been piqued with the release of the latest Windows 10 Home Operating System. This update in Windows is largely being accepted by users because of the much improved features. The Start icon is back and additional security features are added to safeguard users against device theft and malicious software.

I've been hired in a company last March 29 and was placed in the Human Resource Department. Included in my function is to face the applicants of the company. To this, I decided to consider putting make up as a necessity in my daily routine. But after a tired and stressful day, I need to remove my make up completely. Because of this, I searched for make up removers that will take off every make up and dirt in my face.

Upon searching, I found Ponds' Cold Cream.

I got this product in Watsons Personal Care Store in SM Megamall. The big one (172g), if I'm not mistaken, costs P690.00. But what I bought was the small version so I can test it first. I got this for...

These are clothes described as “après sport” or “gym to office”, basic pieces that are smart, lightweight, frill free, and sometimes even architectural. And designers and retailers are have created a lot of buzz about “athleisure” collections, which are appropriate for either athletic or leisure pursuits.

Leisure wear is everything casual and comfortable in a woman’s wardrobe, usually consisting of loose fitting garments made of breathable fabrics like cotton or nylon.  For the woman on the go, leisurewear is a practical solution for running errands or exercising.

Best of the Vest. White hip-long vest worn with skinny pants and slip-on sneakers.
But just because it’s casual doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish. And SM Woman takes a minimalist spin to leisurewear; with simple, easy, and practical separates. Photographed against the modern architectural façade of One Esplanade, these are pieces that show the softer side of minimalism with the use of soft, breezy fabrics, staple knits, and a neutral, monochromatic color palette. A subtle hint of soft pastels here and there, gives the overall silhouette an urban, contemporary edge.

Book Synopsis:
At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers that Hunter is cheating on her—and she’s forced to decide what her next move should be.

Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.
A passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance, Maybe Someday will immerse readers in Sydney’s tumultuous world from the very first page.
My Review:
I’ve been used to cliche love stories until I found this book.  At first I thought the story of this book was something like girl-caught-boy-cheating-then-find-another-man-who-will-comfort-her scenario.
