iflix Now Offers Download Now, Watch Offline Feature

I fell in love with iflix at first sight. I loved the aesthetics. I loved the convenience. I loved the TV show and movie choices. I loved the quality. And I loved that I could share my account with my loved ones.

I still love all of these things about iflix, of course. However, they have taken things a notch higher by adding an all-new feature that has made me love them even more: the Download Now, Watch Offline feature.

Exactly as it sounds, this new feature will allow you to download  content at your convenience, so that you can watch it later on - even if you don't have any Internet connection.

Yes, yes. You might think you don't need it coz you have Wi-Fi that you can bring everywhere or 3G that you can access anytime, but that really isn't the case. I used to think that way, too… until I got bored in an airplane once. And until my Wi-Fi ran out of battery once and I didn't want to use my 3G for fear that my phone would run out of battery, too. (Bloody iPhone battery problems.) And until I was stuck traveling without any Wi-Fi at my disposal. Sad times.

Now there is nothing to worry about anymore, thanks to this new feature. The coolest thing is that iflix is actually one of the first and only subscription streaming services in the world to offer this particular feature on this scale. There's no additional charge for it, either. Plus, you can choose if you want to download it as a low, medium or high quality file depending on how much storage space you have left in your device.

Mark Britt, iflix Group CEO, put it perfect, "This feature is a game changer and represents a huge competitive leap forward for iflix. Wherever our subscribers are - on a plane, traveling, on vacation, or anywhere in the world - they can enjoy their favorite programs, regardless of Internet availability."

So far, I've downloaded a bunch of Once Upon a Time and How I Met Your Mother episodes for offline viewing just in case the need for it ever arises.

iflix rules! Get a subscription for only Php129 a month for unlimited access without ads! You can also get a free 30-day trial first before you commit to see if you'll like it. :) Woot! Visit to register.

A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Not so Far Away

Isn't it strange how people work so hard to fit in and then, when they finally do, they panic and run for the nearest cave? That's me right now.

grey Luke Skywalker shirt from Uniqlo / grey jogger pants from RRJ / printed socks from Stance / maroon shoes from adidas / R2-D2 bag from Loungefly

See, a long time ago in a galaxy not so far away… Well, right here, about a year ago, no one really cared about Star Wars. Or Justin Bieber. And now, all of a sudden, everyone is dressing up as Princess Leia and everyone is praising the Biebs for his great music left and right.

And while that's great because I can finally relate to people, it's kind of scaring me. The world is changing and it's scary because I no longer feel unique and weird. And I've been weird for the longest time, I don't really know how to fit in anymore.

Don't get me wrong. I love that more and more people are finally understanding my obsessions, but I suddenly miss my boyfriend giving a confused smirk when I go nuts over a Millennium Falcon toy. I miss my best friend's glazed eyes whenever she zones out when I geek out. I miss making Star Wars jokes and references and waiting to see who actually gets me. And above all things, I miss Star Wars merch not being sold out when I want them. Lol.

Maybe I would have been more receptive to this if this had happened at an earlier time - say, last year, before I was mocked and ridiculed for posting Justin Bieber photos and made fun of and laughed at for spending 10K on Star Wars merch.

Maybe I'm just bitter.

Maybe it's Maybelline.

My Belkin Wishlist

Have you heard of the brand Belkin before? I'm not sure how this brand escaped my radar, but I'm happy I finally got introduced to them since, to put it simply, they can easily take care of all of my gadget needs (and at much cheaper prices compared to my usual go-to gadget store to boot!)

Here are five items on my current Belkin wishlist that will really make life much easier once I catch have them all *cue Pokemon song*:

5. Belkin Mixit 1.2m Lightning Sync/Charge Cable

In red, of course. Coz Wonder Woman.

Aside from being available in a pretty Wonder Woman-y color, every Apple user needs a charging cable to charge their devices on a daly basis. If you're a blogger like me, then transferring data with this cable is just as vital.

That's why charging cables always need to be replaced the same day they get lost or stop working. I'd actually go so far as to say that charging cables are just as important as breathing nowadays.

4. Belkin Universal Window and Dash Car Navigation Mount for Smartphones

Coz I have horrible navigational skills.

Now, not everybody will need this, but I definitely do. See, I have ZERO navigational skills and this will help ensure that I stop getting lost everyday. Sure, I know I can just use my GPS as normal, but I tend to always look down on it instead of waiting for the GPS lady to tell me where to go and that spells "DANGER" on the road more than anything.

This mount will ensure that I get to where I'm going with ease and safety. What I love about it the most, though, is that it can also be tilted and rotated as needed for easier navigation.

3. Belkin Charger Kit with Lightning to USB Cable

Coz chargers deserve to be fashionable, too.

What is not to love about the color on this Belkin charger? Sure, being fashown might not be as important for chargers, but I love having unique items to avoid mixing them up with family members and friends. Walang basagan ng trip! :p

2. Belkin Sport-Fit Armband for iPhone 6

More pretty colours!

By now it should be obvious that Belkin wins my heart because of the pops of colours that they add to their phone accessories. I love the pink of this one.

I have actually been searching far and wide for a sport-fit armband because I have started running with my boyfriend every week (shocker, I know!) and I've just been holding my phone every time we run. Once I have this, my weekly runs will go much more smoother, that's for sure! Plus, it's so pretty in pink!!! Oh, did I say that already?

1. Belkin Economy Series 8 Socket Surge Protector

All of my devices, rejoice!

Belkin doesn't just cater to phone accessories, either. This socket surge protector is the ultimate must-have for a movie buff and gamer like me! Not only will I get to charge all of my daily-needed gadgets on this thing, but I'll also get to watch movies or play games while I'm at it. Lots of socket space for everyone! Hallelujah!

So, there you have it: my Belkin wishlist in all of its glory!

Lucky for me, they are all still available on Lazada. :) Want to check out the rest of the Belkin products out there? Just visit this link: :)
