Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Rosetta Stone | 180 Day Challenge

posted by on 11/08/2014

I live in a household where my housemates are both Vietnamese, the only downside of this is the fact that they are able to have conversations with each other right in front of me and I have no clue what they are saying. I absolutely hate it when they do this but not for reasons you may think. I hate it because it reminds me of the fact that I can only speak English, simply put I get a little jealous of the fact that they can effortlessly float between two languages. I’ve always wanted to be able to speak another language since I don’t class patois as a language so when Rosetta Stone came to us with a challenge I jumped straight in. Read to find out what the challenge entails.

Unlock Your Phone With A Tattoo

posted by on 08/08/2014

VivaLnk temporary tattoos are the new way forward or so they’ll have you believe. It has become apparent to technology makers that we as consumers have become either extremely lazy or very impatient. So much so that apparently we now need a quicker way to unlock our mobile phones. Granted this is not a new thing since Apple introduced the fingerprint scanner to their iPhones, however I don’t necessarily put that in the same category as this nonsense because it does have other uses. The penny sized, extremely thin and flexible tattoos are placed on the wrist and last up to five days. Currently they are only compatible with Motorola’s Moto X however other platforms and providers are expected to be announced in the future. If you fancy checking the tattoo out for yourself then head over to the VivaLnk website and place an order. Head on over to the flipside to see how it all works.

Throwback Thursday

posted by on 24/07/2014

This weeks throwback track is actually a treat for my mother. I was racking my brain trying to think of what could be possibly the last actual track (at least for a while) that finds it’s way onto the Throwback Thursday thread. It wasn’t until I had a conversation with the mother that it clicked, I felt like I wanted to do something for her. There are many tracks that I could have chosen as she has an eclectic taste however I also wanted to showcase the diversity we as a collective/family possess so for that reason I chose a track that may shock a few people. I personally love this track by Will Young and hope that you all will love it too. Just as a heads up i’d like to let you all know that things are going to change with Throwback as of next week. So stay tuned, until then please enjoy the sweet vocals of Mr Will Young on his track ‘Fridays Child‘. Luv ya mum x

Do you fancy having a gasm? What kind of gasm you may ask, well Judging by the title of this post I think it’s pretty obvious that I would suggest a gasm of the ear. In this weeks Eargasms you’ll find tracks from artists who have yet to release an album, one who is gearing up to release their sophomore album and a cover from a relatively unknown artists who has an amazing voice. As ever we are diverse in choice but slight in standards and our standards are high.

Throwback Thursday

posted by on 10/07/2014

I’m not gonna lie the inspiration for this weeks Throwback track came from a late night session of me watching Big Brother’s Bit On The Side. One of the guests on the show completely floored me. I was so stunned to see that this person was still around, I mean obviously I didn’t think she was dead or anything but she’s still booking gigs even if it’s a short stint on a panel. I’m glad for her to be honest because I had completely forgot about her existence which is really bad especially when you consider that she is the cousin of my best friend at school. Anywho I think I’ve built up enough suspense now so it is time to reveal who is that star of this weeks Throwback Thursday. Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you Samantha Mumba on the flipside.

Throwback Thursdsay

posted by on 26/06/2014

This week I found it kinda hard to think of a song but I couldn’t understand why. It wasn’t until I was sitting down in a bar with Yang that the song came to me and yes before you question, much like Beyonce, I’d been drinkin I’d be drankin. I knew the song was the one because we both started dancing to it but obviously Yang took it a little to far and tried to sing along, the operative word being TRIED. Anywho enough about Yang’s failed attempt at staying in key, head on over to the flipside and get into a classic from 2Pac.

Sometimes one forgets how long it takes to construct an Eargasms post. Anywho, I hope you all enjoy the glorious variety in this weeks selection. I would like to give a special mention to the Sam Smith cover of Whitney Houston’s ‘How Will I Know’, this boy can really really sing. It’s actually not fair.

Throwback Thursday

The track that I have selected for this weeks Throwback Thursday is pure grooves. Whilst writing this i’m listening to the track and can’t stop bopping my head, my work colleagues must think i’m some kind of pigeon. Sometimes I really wish I could sing because if i could I would be singing from the top of my lungs right now, this song just puts me in a good mood. Anywho I think it’s time I told y’all what song i’m gushing about. Everybody people enjoy the smooth tones of Maxwell and his classic hit Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder).

Hello Happiness By Coca-Cola

posted by on 04/06/2014

Imagine paying for you calls in Coca-Cola caps. Well for the workers in United Arab Emirates this fictitious idea has come true. Migrant workers who make as little as $6 a day have been separated from their loved ones in order to make money and provide support. This new initiative called Hello Happiness by Coca-Cola aims to connect these workers with their families via a phone call. Phone booths created by the company along with Y&R Dubai essentially work by inserting plastic caps of a Coke bottle. Each cap will allow an international phone call of 3 minutes in length, it’s pretty amazing. Take a look at the short video showcasing the phone booths in action and see the workers light up.
