November 2013 List Love

Winter is here! I cannot be happier! Last week also rained quite a bit in my city which made it cooler, cloudy and indirectly, made me more sleepy as well. The end of November signals the start of my favourite time with New Year, my birthday, anniversary and Valentine’s Day to look forward to! I mean I get gifts and I like it.       Link Love – Books 1. The Mysterious Mr. Jacob by John Zubrzycki - It’s more of a historical book than a story as such but fascinating nonetheless. Mr. Jacob is a mysterious figure in our British past where he had many roles; mainly, a diamond merchant, a spy and a magician.   Link Love – Beauty & Fashion 1....

October 2013 List Love

                          Link Love – Books 1. Killer Puzzles – Does anyone have these puzzle books by Kjartan Poskitt? They are so freaking difficult!

Anyway, a while back I found the answers page by the author himself! And guess what, I managed to see the Phantom of Ghastly Castle! Seriously though, couldn’t have done it without the help.     Link Love – Beauty & Fashion 1. Chloe Morello - I think she’s the first Australian You Tuber I’ve...

Posted on Mar 22, 2012 in Gadgets, Tech

Time for a gizmo post! With the new iPad (or iPad 3 as some call it) out, I spent my time partially admiring iOS 5 and its niceties. I thought I’d share my favourite apps. When I started writing this, I felt that ‘just’ favourite was too limiting. So instead I will continually make posts for best apps in their respective categories and this post is just an All-Stars version. Onto the list! Favourite iPhone Apps 2011-2012 1. Facebook - Keeps you connected (and distracted) at all times! I didn’t like the older facebook app but now the design and navigation is cleaner, sexy and faster! 2. Instagram – From a simple photo app with retro filters, its turned into a...

Kindle Fire Review

Kindle Fire Review

Sometimes luck strikes and you are gifted with a free Kindle Fire! After using it for a month I have two perspectives for this review. One is purely based on the technological aspect and the other is its benefit in a market like India. When I first held it I was ‘squeeeeeing’ with excitement which was probably heightened by the fact that I was getting it for free!                         Looks : I think it looks fab. It doesn’t look like cheap plastic. It feels sturdy to hold and the back feels soft and comfortable to hold. It doesn’t slip. Performance : I found it to lag be slow at times. Mainly...
