Skin wraps for Smartwatch & iPhone

I am always very nervous when it comes to installing skins/wraps or protector for my devices. Therefore, I always put off from doing so! Can you believe that I still have NOT install the protector for my Pebble Original when I have already received my Pebble Time Steel? Yup that’s how slow I am! I guess the main fear is like everyone else… that I am scared of ruining it. I have a nervous hand since young. A couple of my friends know that and will NEVER ask me to take photos as it will turns out to be blur.

So today I decided to try to install a skin for my pebble time. And I managed to install the skin!

It isn’t perfect but at least it is straight! I didn’t install the screen protector as it sounds complicated  with the water spray :/ The feature skin is from GadgetWraps! I need to order a couple of Pebble Time Steel skin next week. I love them for their cheap shipping and it didn’t take very long to reach me. I will also try to find a water spray to see if I can install the protector.

Feeling confidence, I decided to try to install the skin for my iPhone & iPad Mini from SlickWraps. And they are much much easier. Like what the guy say in the video, “you wouldn’t ruin it!”. I like that you are allow to peel off when its not align. You can always adjust until you are happy!

It does look like a brand new phone. yay for going naked (phone)!

I am so happy with the effect that I am tempted to get it in another colour but then I probably change phone faster than changing the skin. For my next phone, I shall not buy any case…. and go naked! I do highly recommend SlickWraps’ devices wrap and they are made in US.

I cannot compare GadgetWraps skin and SlickWraps skin though as I have them on different device. I did have the wraps for my Pebble Original and Steel from both companies. But I need to find time to install them.


Weekly roundup – 31 August – 6 September

It is another week again 🙂 Tension is high here as the GE2015 (General Election 2015) is approaching! I haven’t been reading news… I should start reading soon in order to vote properly.

Again this is an week of waiting for news. I should probably do something! But I will have more time/energy to focus on it next week! I wrote about productivity at work in my previous post. It is also something I have been trying to achieve at work. Next time, I will be more focus on achieving this.

Not much has been done this week either. But I have been planning and working on my to-do list for most days.

Last 2 months or so, I had a problem with my “To-do” list pages as one page is ended up being very much empty at the month end.
I finally organised in such a way that I can put in my tasks properly and hence, no page should be wasted. I organised it into Important/Not Important and Urgent/Not Important. This is derived from the Urgent-Important Matrix. With that, i am able to write them into my planner efficiently as daily to do!

Next week I believe I will have more time and energy to focus…

I continued with my zero spending for this week. But I occasionally gave treats for myself such as a Frappuccino!
This week I also purchased an online membership for myself as I feel the need to FOCUS on being myself. I will talk about it below.

Anyway other than all these, I did not spend any cents on other stuffs. But I do have some kickstarter campaigns to consider. The thing about kickstarter is they don’t close immediately and take your funds when you backed. So with a planner, I added in the task to reconsider. I backed 1 campaign to get the early bird deal. But then I will have to reconsider.

One of them is actually a Holga campaign. I was looking at a Holga a couple of weeks ago… But I decided not to get it as I don’t think I would be using it much. The idea of developing film is just…. I don’t know, sounds like something I would ended up NOT doing due to laziness. But a digital Holga?? YES PLEASE!!! I have always been attracted to Holga due to the unique feeling of their photos. It looks just so different from normal camera photos and it seems like its not as complicated to operate as compared an DSLR.

Finding myself
For the past week or so, I have been quite lost. I keep giving myself an online identity that I shouldn’t be. (It has nothing to do with cyber crime etc though! :P) By some miracle, I found an old account from 4 years ago. So I decided that I need to refocus on being myself and stop being someone who I never wanted to be! With that, I feel it is important for me to get an online membership account to mark my identity. As a perk of membership vs normal member, you can pinned a post to your own page. I feel like its a reasonable investment.

Brow problem

I must admit I am VERY lazy when it comes to brow. I feel like there isn’t a need to maintain them since they are covered by my fringe or bangs. But I kinda change my attitude towards them now.

On 7 July – of course I don’t remember the date! My planner stated so! 😀, I went for a first eyebrow treatment. I picked Benefits because I always like their skincare and beauty products as they are so vintage looking. Although I never really buy anything from there. HA.

I saw an blog post (unsponsored) online that mentioned it do not really hurt or anything. So I decided to give myself a half day off to do the waxing! I am not going into details as I did not take any picture. But I was very happy with the effect.

2 months later, I realise my brow is in a bad shape again. It is again too thick and need to maintain. So, I went online and try to find something….

Browhaus – I admit I am very intrigued by their brow resurrection treatment. It is stated to be lasting for 2 years or so. Imagine  this… You do not have to be worried about your brow for 2 years! Cool! But the price is expensive. For $1,284, it works out to be $53.50 per month. Uh, I don’t see the justification of spending that amount! I mean I am not an extremely vain person :p who find the really important need to be 100% perfect all the times. If the cost is equivalent to what I would be paying for normal brow threading/tweezing/waxing. Then I might consider. I know they are different things. But I don’t have that need now. And after doing the maths, even if I go for eyebrow waxing every month, it costs only $22. Furthermore there is a lot of reviews that the salesgirl are too pushy so I decided not to patronise them for even a simple eyebrow threading/tweezing.

So I decided to visit Benefits again! I also read online that eyebrow waxing is much lasting than the other treatment.

Muji Ball point pen

One of my favourite pens ran out of ink. It is an inexpensive ballpoint pen which I purchased from Muji.

I love this pen as it writes extremely smoothly. So far, there is none other pens that I am so pleased with.
There was never one moment that I have to write vigorously in order to let the ink to flow. And… it’s made in Japan!

Whenever I passed by Muji, I always go in and see if there is any stock of this. But they only have blue and red pen. When it comes to pen, I stubbornly prefer black ink. Anyway now that it has ran out, I am little sad. but since I have too much pens. I will not buy the replacement yet.
