The Love Triangle We’ve Been Waiting For.


minko_buds_1 minko_buds_2

I’ve already said that I think there’s a devil in hell dedicated to making our lives miserable by knotting up all our headphone wires… and like holy water repels evil, the Minko Buds repel the evil deeds of this devil. This nifty little tool allows you to separate the three essential wires that comprise the earphone. The tool also separates, allowing you to use your earphones as if there was nothing attached in the first place. Take that, Devil.

T – Block re-defines time through an original quality timepiece and has a very futuristic look.  It boasts a robust design that’s unlike any other watch you’ve seen. Clear, LEDs are embedded in a tough polyurethane case and seamless matching strap. When the watch is in sleep mode, the LEDS are dim, but if you want to know the time or date, just hit one of the buttons and the  lights appear, revealing the time and day.

Ever Wanted To Go To The Maldives?


huf hufav

Trendsetting Huvafen Fushi has been raising the benchmark since its first inception two years ago. Opening its doors to feature the world’s first underwater spa, Huvafen Fushi has since earned its spot on the coveted Conde Nast Traveller MagazinesUK and US Hot List. This discreetly luxurious, contemporary retreat is located on its own lagoon on a tiny island in North Male Atoll. I arrived late into the night direct from Singapore, the flight doesn’t get in until 10pm (note: book Emirates instead to arrive during the day). Waking up in the Maldives is something everyone should experience before they die.

BEST TIME TO GO

Jan until May

COOL FACTOR

The friendly, laid-back staff: guests in pavilion accommodation get a 24-hour butler service, while the rest of the resort gets a FISH (Fast Island Service Host), which amounts to the same thing. The underwater spa is a must.

FACILITES

Three restaurants, a lively bar, a seriously cool well-stocked underground wine cellar, an over-water yoga pavilion and the world’s first underwater massage treatment rooms complete the picture.

COST

Bungalows from US$880

S

This year, Huvafen Fushi is proud to announce three new initiatives. An übercool 70ft luxury yacht, an exclusive compilation with one of the world’s most famous DJ and Producer, Ravin from Buddha Bar, Paris as well as an uplift to the world’s first underwater spa.

Take A Trip To The Muzic Zoo.

It’s a little know fact that I have an affinity for zoo’s, (and a widely known fact that I have an undying love for music), so following an online presence titled “Muzic Zoo” should have occurred to me earlier.  The site features an incredible range of artists, from global stars to independent new comers, and puts their music on display for the public to rate, comment on, and support the artists of their choosing.  MZ’s interview section is also a fantastic way to get a unique perspective on the artists coming up in the charts via exclusive interviews.  The content on Muzic Zoo is updated daily, so there’s always something fresh.  Check them out by clicking any of the photos.

#StandWithHer, The Essie Justice Movement.


#StandWithHer

Click here to vote.

With the rising rates of incarceration, not only in the Bay Area, but in the U.S. overall, many more people are beginning to feel the squeeze of mass incarceration.  Those who have incarcerated loved ones may rarely be the focus of sympathy when someone is locked up, but families, and specifically women in those families get hit hard. These women are left to manage finances, care for children and hold families together, often at an enormous personal cost. Essie Justice Group will build a movement to support and connect women, and empower them to advocate for change in the justice system. The Essie group has set up the non-profit #StandWithHer program in order to provide support for women in these situations.
