Liz Uy and what keeps her moving


She’s tinsel town’s newest it-girl. And she’s everywhere—from billboards to glossies to the blogosphere, Liz Uy continues to fascinate with her eye for all things stylish. From being a magazine editor and celebrity stylist, Liz has become a star on her own with a multitude of endorsements under her hat.

During a hectic day with a schedule of a celebrity stylist, Liz needs an efficient smartphone partner and a reliable data connection to keep up with the demands of her fast-paced lifestyle. Both of which, she found in BlackBerry Z10 and Globe Telecom.

Describe your day.

On a typical day, as soon as the alarm rings, I check my BlackBerry Z10 to review my to-do list for the day. Then, I get ready, usually I try and keep it pretty structured with some comfort since my day ahead involves meetings, pullouts, and shoots; coordinating with my team and so on, so I like to find outfits that will take me through the day. After work, I make time to work out and stay fit.

What are some of your current favorite things?

Work and swim. Yes, work is my favorite thing to do. It’s addicting. I work all the time using my BlackBerry Z10. I approve everything through BBM, and I’m constantly checking my e-mail for samples, pullouts, or sites with a huge SALE signage! I also use it to take photos of people I’ve styled for my site. The Z10’s got a great camera for my photo addiction and its unique Time Shift feature allows me to find the best shot of my subject by toggling within the photo- it’s so great! I never have to retake a photo again!

Why do you use Globe PowerSurf for your BlackBerry Z10?

I’m always moving so my car has become like a dressing room on wheels. Since I’m always on the go, I need an internet plan that will keep up with me and my lifestyle. Globe PowerSurf works really well for my BlackBerry Z10, because it gives me the ability to stay online as long as I want. It also allows me to use the best features of the Z10. With Globe PowerSurf, tweeting, liking photos, and posting Facebook statuses and updates become non-stop. No rest for the wicked, as they say.

How do you stay connected?

The voice note feature on the Z10 is my favorite! My nephews in the States sing to me via BBM. It’s a great little feature on the phone that allows me to stay connected with my family and friends abroad, amidst my jampacked schedule.

How do you keep yourself updated?

To keep in the loop with fashion and style trends, I follow a lot of designers on Instagram, go through Twitter feeds, and check style blogs. I also use my Z10 to check BBC TV to be in the know with current events.

What’s the best thing about your BlackBerry Z10 paired with Globe PowerSurf?

I love how sleek the Z10 is, and the capabilities of the phone are great. It’s really nice to explore the new operating system and my Globe PowerSurf does not restrict the activities I do online, so I’m free to choose whatever I want to do. With my Z10, I’m social media-connected, which is what everyone should be these days. The Z10 and Globe PowerSurf are really a great combo.
