Why Happy Plugs are the best

Gold Happy Plug Earphones

Just a quickie today! Thought it was about time I showed you all something a little bit different than usual - a tech obsession. I feel like I've finally stepped into the 21st century by actually using my phone for something other than texting and Candy Crush - who knew a smartphone could be so...smart? As you all know, I've also been heading to the gym a lot lately, to which these fellas have seriously come in handy. Sure, a pair of headphones might not sound like a big deal, but I'm seriously converted. There's nothing worse than doing your thang at the gym and finding your headphones popping out of your ears every five minutes - these absolutely do not do that. When they're in, they're in! Obviously, they look super cool too, and are even available in rose gold? Um, I'll take ten pairs please.

But of course, what most normal people use headphones for isn't the way they look, it's the sound, and when I'm watching Netflix or powering through the gym that's what I notice the most. It's so damn crisp! I'm not sure how I coped with 'normal' ear phones before hand, but I definitely see the fault of my ways now. So, about that rose gold pair..

Misfit Shine review

Misfit Shine Review

Keeping fit is hardly my forte, so when I don't have my boyfriend pestering me to get active I have my Misfit Shine. A Misfit what? I hear you say. Well imagine this - a stylish watch that not only tells the time (like any good watch should) but also tracks how many steps I've taken each day and how much sleep I get each night - kind of like that Sleep Cycle app but a lot more stylish and accurate. In fact, it's so accurate that I even know how many hours of deep sleep I'm getting - which definitely isn't enough, to say the least.

I'll be sure to keep you posted on how I get a long with this little fella - fingers crossed I'll be Miranda Kerr status by next week..

BassBuds BassBoomz review

BassBuds BassBoomz review

I'm going to go ahead and mention the S word again: summer. Nothing quite says summer like an afternoon BBQ in the garden with drinks flowing and music playing - especially when the music is coming from my new BassBoomz speaker.  

Ignore it's size - this little thing packs a (very tuneful) punch, and it's been following me around ever since it arrived on my doorstep. BassBoomz connect via Bluetooth to everything from my phone to my Macbook and give 5-6 hours of uninterrupted music on one single charge. And come on, they look pretty good too, right? I just need one in every colour now.
