Thank goodness, I’m a work-at-home mom! I can now go to events after work with my son in tow. After logging off from work, I took my two-year old with me to the launch of the Blogberry #BeTheBestYou University Planner at the National Bookstore in Glorietta 1. It’s a good thing that my little fellow had his afternoon nap which put him in a well-behaved mood and allowed me to take snapshots and be attentive during the event.
Stradmore Notes, a homegrown brand of S Point Products, Inc, has been producing the Blogberry since 2008. Blogberry is a journal and planner in one, designed to help students organize their schedule and activities. Blogberry was well received during its initial launch which prompted Stradmore Notes to create Blogberry for Moms, Blogberry for Yuppies, Blogberry for Foodies, and the Home Blogberry. This year, Stradmore Notes decided to give students a more special and stylish edition of the University Lifestyle Planner by collaborating with Laureen Uy, a very popular fashion blogger and style icon.
The 2015/2016 University Lifestyle Planner aptly called #BeTheBestYou, aims to promote self-empowerment among the youth. Laureen Uy, who constantly shares a dose of her style and gives fashion tips in her own site, Break My Style, had a hand on every aspect of the #BeTheBestYou planner. She chose black and white for the cover of the planner to make the color suitable for all students.
Laureen included tips for studying such as the Divisibility Rules, Common Grammar Goofs, Punctuation, Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows and Mac among others.
She even added quotes from her siblings and other celebrities who inspire her.
There is also an LRT and MRT map which is very handy for students who get around using public transportation. Laureen also included monthly activity sheets where students can put together an outfit, write a blog post, take note of their current favorites, and jot down their goals.
The Blogberry #BeTheBestYou University Lifestyle Planner (Php499.75) as well as the #BeTheBestYou Journal (Php299.75) are available at all branches of National Bookstore and Powerbooks. You may also purchase them online from the National Bookstore website.
