Start the year right with (The Freelancer Edition)

When you're online for like 22 hours a day like I am, then your go-to info guy must be Google.  Your party gang must be Facebook.  And your shopping buddy must be is every bargain hunter's best friend.  It's that kind of pal that takes you hand in hand to the best deals in shopping history.  In fact, there is no one I would rather spend the start of the year with.

Starting the year right, my personal theme is UPGRADE.  So I have my level-up must-haves for 2013 right here.  All care of my shop-'til-you-drop wingman,  Round 'em up!

Apple Macbook Pro 15 Quad Core 17 4Gb Ddr3 500Gb ATI Gddr5 Vram
aka, a more decent Macbook than the one I'm using now.  In my line of work, you have to keep up with the techie Joneses, specially if you need a machine that's as hardworking as you.  Plus, P15,000.00 saved is not bad!

Kate Spade Laptop Bag
You match class with class, of course.  If and when I need to work during conferences, I can't carry my awesome Macbook Pro 15 Quad Core yadda-yadda in a sack, can I?  Oh, and Kate Spade under P10k?  Pinch me!

Apple iPad 3
Yup, guilty as charged, I have yet to join the iPad generation.  And to think that I have always wanted/needed one for my Keynote presentations.  Problem solved! 

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT N7105
I'll need to check emails even when I'm doing the groceries, walking the dog, and brushing my teeth.  Ok, I can do that with any other Smart Phone.  But the Galaxy Note is niftier.  Makes me look like a successful freelancer.  Ha!

Sol Republic V8 Sound Engine Headphones
I'm a music maniac.  You'll never find me without an appropriate ear candy attachment while waiting for a meeting to go underway.  Aaand... some clients do take long to powder their noses. :P  Brand new headies and earies coming up!

Nikon Zoom Lens
Other than music, my other love would be pictures.  I use my husband's Nikon DSLR more often than he does.  He's perfectly fine with that as long as I heed the camera's longing for a zoom lens partner.  Ok, ok, fine.

Nintendo DS Lite
Is it bad parenting that I bring my kids to my client meetings sometimes?  Well, if it can't be helped, I'll need something to entertain them with. A sleek and handsome, lovingly discounted Nintendo DS should do the trick.

Ugg Boots
This has always been my problem.  Comfortable boots during TV shoots.  Ugg will answer to that comfort.  Ugg will gladly answer for the adorable factor, too.  Well, leave it to to have winter boots.  Wow!

Razi Boots
On that note, I'll also need a formal pair for my more corporate affairs.  Teehee.

Wii U
At the end of the day, freelancing is all about having more time with your family.  What better way to spend quality time with the brood than by completely geeking it out!  My boys (husband included) will love the new Wii U!  I can see us hanging out (and beating each other senseless, I might add) for hours with this.

Ooooh, my 2013 Upgrade Scheme is looking gooooood!
