Funky Cateye Glasses

I’ve been hopping around, checking out eyewear shops. The glasses are not for me, but for my really ‘fashionista’ daughter. She’s been asking me to buy her a funky colorful catseye glasses she can wear for her Christmas party. I do wonder what kind of ‘look’ she wants to have for the party.

Anyway, I saw this two on Amazon and they look really cool! Check them out.

Mirror 2.0 An Interactive Bathroom System

Oh yes. I think this is my dream bathroom mirror.

Mirror 2.0 Interactive Bathroom System

Lol. I am pretty sure a lot of geeks would concur with me. Well, not just geeks, even those people who are crazy busy would love this. It has an array of features that sounds like heaven to me. Hahaha.

And I quote from Yanko Design

…uses voice command, face and gesture recognition technology! Two LCD displays are placed behind a one-way mirror with a camera for face recognition, sensors for motion control and a microphone for voice control. To keep you entertained the mirror plays your music or movies, displaying your e-book or streaming the news.

If that is not enough, it even communicates reminders or gives you updates on the weather; it can moderate the room temperature and dim the lights.

This innovative mirror was designed by  Robert Grynkofki and is Reece 2013 Bathroom Innovation Award entry.

Work and Exercise Blurbs

It’s been a month since my last update! Sorry, guys. I’ve been swamped with things to do both personal and work related.

And now I’m just trying to get back on my blogging backlog which has taken a backseat. You see, aside from blogging, my main work is really building websites and also graphic design. And sometimes those things could get seriously overwhelming.

But thankfully, I managed and now I’m focusing some attention and work on my blogs. A lot of them need work and I’m streamlining a bit and cutting back on blogs that aren’t doing that well. Of course, I’m keeping this one hahaha.

Anyway, I’m moving one last site to another host and I’m good to up the content posting a bit.

Also, since work keeps me tied to my desk and that means I’m sedentary most of the day I figured I need some exercise. I’ve been walking/running and also doing power yoga. Now I’m thinking of adding some PowerSports mix to keep me up. I’m also mulling about getting an exercise bike or maybe an elliptical right next to my desk. Something that won’t occupy much space and would remind me to get up every few minutes and exercise.

I like these two..

A Budget Canon Camcorder

I’ve been mulling over this buying decision for about two weeks already. I’ve been planning to buy a camcorder since last year but I always end up postponing it. Mind you, this is not exactly necessary, more like an indulgence. I’d like a camcorder to just record some moments and some of our travels. I don’t want or need a fancy one, just something that works and within my budget range of $200-$350.

I’ve been looking up different camcorders and I have these two picks earmarked. The main thing now is deciding which one I want to buy.

The main difference between the two is the price point and of course the more pricey one has more added features. I’m thinking this over, if I need the features or not. Otherwise, I would like to go for the first option. What do you think? Which one would you pick if it were you making the purchase decision.

Girly iPad Mini 2 Piece Cases

I’ve been on the hunt for an iPad Mini 2 piece case for a friend. To be honest, I didn’t know where to start. How can a case have two pieces. I’m such a simpleton sometimes hahaha!

Thankfully, Amazon has an amazing inventory of iPad Mini cases that I had to take a deep breath before plunging in and doing my search. Here are some of the items I considered. Note that my friend is a girl and was of course looking for some feminine iPad Mini cases.

MineCraft All Things

This hardly surprises me at all, anymore. My daughter’s new obsession. I shouldn’t really be surprised if she takes on playing best bc rich warlock next. But for now she loves loves love to play a simulated game (I know this is totally popular with gamers), the Minecraft Game.

[amazon_link id=”B00992CF6W” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Minecraft - Pocket Edition[/amazon_link]

This is the pocket edition app she plays with on the tablet…[amazon_link id=”B00992CF6W” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]MineCraft Pocket Edition[/amazon_link]

And a lot of novelty stuff are propping up due to the game popularity. I wouldn’t mind buying this for her:

She’s even egging me on to buy her a new PC just so she can play with this. She’s amazingly visual and I’m more amazed that she can build complex houses, cities that are obviously well thought out and planned. And after making her nth number of ‘world’ she told me she wants to be an architect.

I do limit her time playing the game but that hardly dampens her enthusiasm for the game. In fact, its infectious! She’s asking me to try it out and I like it. I’m not as fast as she though but its kinda awesome.

In fact both of us has been crazy reading books and watching gaming tips online. These books would come in really handy for fellow Minecraft beginners and enthusiasts:

Chick Picks: Value For Money WordPress Theme Clubs

I LOVE WordPress with passion. And one of the best things about this platform is the availability of different themes to suit everyone’s tastes and needs. There’s about a gazillion free themes out there, and choosing one is a lot more difficult than shopping for cover stays . You can even build your own if you want to. There are also several wordpress theme clubs offering unique premium themes to give your site the added edge.

Personally, I prefer to use premium themes. I do build a lot of sites, so premium themes is a good choice for me. Most of them are very well coded, offers a unique and professional look, saves me time from doing a lot of tweaking, and one big deal for me, your site will stand out. I have nothing against free wordpress themes, in fact, I use them quite often (see this blog is sporting an awesome free theme with added customizations) but if you really want to add that unique pizzazz to your site, you can customize a free base theme or getting a premium theme would be one way to go.

The downside of premium themes is the price. Yup, some of them are pretty steep. Some overly so. But there are theme clubs out there that I think are worth the buck. Here’s my favorites:

Elegant Themes – Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous themes. Elegant Themes are really eye catching, has a host of customization options, a very good support forum, and best of all? The PRICE! For only $39 per year you get access to all themes. To date, Elegant Themes has about 81 and they regularly churn out new themes. So that’s bang for your buck, for real! They’ve got themes geared for shops, personal blogs, portfolios, photography sites and more.

I’ve been using Elegant Themes for years already and I’ve never been disappointed. The only complaint I would have is that, they often come up with a new theme, just after I changed themes and after seeing the new one, I want to change it again.

Genesis Theme Framework for WordPress by StudioPress

StudioPress – Home of the Genesis Framework. Another favorite. Beautifully coded framework which you can easily tweak to your hearts content. But if you’re not up to the customization bit, then Genesis has child themes available for free or premium. The framework costs $59.95. What I love about the Genesis Framework is the simplicity. It also have a very professional vibe which is great if you are building sites for corporate use or for business.

Another place I go to for premium themes is Theme Forest. It’s not exactly a theme club, more like a marketplace for themes. You can find all sorts of pro wordpress themes with affordable prices.
