Tech Review: LG Soundbar Flex SJ7

Soundbars serve both an aesthetic purpose and deliver great sound. Living in Singapore, rooms are small and space is tight, that is why the LG Soundbar Flex SJ7 brings a new meaning to flexibility. The LG Soundbar Flex SJ7 is a 3 piece sound system which allows you to arrange the soundbar’s placement to your specific needs. It has 3 different ways it can be used: The standard Soundbar setup The stereo setup Or a surround sound system (Oopsies not possible to take a photo for this one) In fact, one of the speakers is portable and can be connected through Bluetooth; allowing you to play music from any part of your home. The soundbar has quite a heft to it so it might be slightly inconvenient to bring outdoors. It also features Adaptive Sound Control (ASC) which analyses content in real-time and automatically adjusts the sound to suit the correct content. However, this feature has to be activated using the remote by pressing the Sound Effects button. The primary unit is capable of connecting …

Tech Review: Beats X

The Beats X is one of the newest (as of posting) wireless earbuds from the Beats lineup. Since Apple has taken over Beats, the company has only been going up. It took a pretty long for me to get my hands on this but I finally managed to. (YAY me!) I got the Beats X in blue as it’s a pretty unique colour. This is my 2nd Beats product and really, the unboxing experience was awesome!!! Straight away you are greeted by the earpiece itself and underneath it was the manuals, the extra eartips of various size, as well as earhooks of various sizes if you require a more secure fit. Behind all the eartips and earhooks was the case and a charging cable. Unlike the previous wireless products made by Beats, this charger has a lightning adapter, so all those Apple users should be glad. My only slight complain is that the case is a dust magnet and it gets dirty super easily. Now moving on to the earpiece… Syncing the Beats X to …

Tech Review: Brainwavz M5

The Brainwavz M5 retails at US$49.50 (S$65.50) but can be easily found under US$40.00 on Amazon. It comes with a hard-case carrier, several silicon ear-tips and even a pair of foam ear-tips. Honestly at this price range, the accessories that come with it is amazing. The sound drivers are housed in a nice metal and plastic housing. At first I actually felt that they were pretty flimsy but on further inspection it seems like this pair is gonna last pretty long. The wires are round thin cables but so far I have yet to get them tangled when I roll them up. It also has a remote on the wire that I like a lot. The remote is pretty small so it does not add additional weight to one side and only has one button. Now the sound… For me it sounded pretty balance and flat. On very rare occasions the instruments sometimes overpowers the vocals making it very muddy. Noise isolation is not that great either and you are still very much able to …

We had such talented artist who made amazing music. Let me take you down the memory lane with 17 songs you almost forgot. No worries, you can thank me later. 1. Backstreet Boys – As Long as You Love Me Before Justin Bieber and One direction even made it to this planet, we had Backstreet Boys! Backstreet Boys were one of the first few boy bands that made it big during the 2000’s. 2. N’sync – Bye Bye Bye Just like the Backstreet Boys, N’Sync was a big craze during this period of time. N’Sync and Backstreet Boys were always going head to head when it came to their fan base and music. Honestly speaking, I am a total N’sync girl.. I mean come on, how can you resist that cute baby face of Justin Timberlake and that sexy demeanor of …

Hello my lovely dudettes! It’s time for my September favourites. I can’t believe it’s October already! Where did all the time go…? September has been a pretty hectic month and believe it or not, I did not have much time to try new beauty products. So this month’s favourites consists mainly of products that I’ve been using for a while but have been really loving this month! 1. Australis Mineral Face Highlighter – Pearl I’ve been meaning to get a highlighter for a really long time. I bought this product from Priceline at the beginning of the month. This is the first time that I’m using a highlighter and wow.. do I have to say, I’m really pleased with the results. The shade Pearl is perfect for my skin tone and gives me the right amount of oomph and dewy effect. The product has a slight shimmer but just enough to brighten up your face and give you a fresh and light glow. I didn’t need to use too much of the product to see …
