style journal // beats by dre.

Posted on January 31st, 2014

I’m not sure how I would have survived the winter so far without these Beats by Dre. They double as my earmuffs in this bone-chilling weather, and the wireless bluetooth gives me the freedom to move without the cord.

the little things // #ifihadglass

Posted on February 20th, 2013

Google has finally released another teaser [and contest] for Glass by Google.

Google is looking for people to test drive Glass. Tell Google what you would do if you had Glass, starting with #ifihadglass. The hashtag is currently trending on Google+.

Me? #ifihadglass, I would capture the most beautiful thing of all.. human emotion. Raw and real joy, excitement and even sorrow. Very few are willing to share it, though we all go through it. Why not share our emotions and experience it together?
