LG V30 Raspberry Rose hands-on: Simply stunning

This one’s a looker



If you’re looking for the LG V30 review, this isn’t it. (Although we’ve previously written about it and you can read that HERE.) This is a post dedicated to how pretty their newly released color is.

This is the LG V30 in Raspberry Rose.

When I first heard that the LG V30 was coming in another color, I flipped. The lavender was pretty enough, but a red one?

I wasn’t mistaken. This version is as stunning as I had imagined.

I first saw the phone in this shade at the LG booth in CES. Unfortunately, there weren’t any units outside of the display so I wasn’t able to appreciate it’s full glory — until now.

There are no mincing words: This phone is just gorgeous. The rich red is an eye catcher, but it’s also in a deep and muted tone that it isn’t too loud or vulgar.

So many pretty things in this last photo!

This phone comes with the same LG V30 specs, including that 6-inch OLED screen and a near borderless display.

Same processor and cameras on the Raspberry Rose LG V30 make it the same multimedia powerhouse…

… only in a more dazzling color. This may very well be, in terms of color, one of the best-looking phones out there.

If you can’t get enough of the LG V30 now, and I don’t blame you after those incredible-looking photos, you can watch our review here. Just imagine having everything in this video, but in Raspberry Rose.

If you still can’t get enough, you’re in luck. LG has announced that the LG G6 will also be available in the same magnificent color.

I need me more Raspberry Rose in my life!

Google Pixel 3 Top Shot: The Instagram boyfriend you never had

How to get those perfect IG photos



We’ve all been there. You’re at a beautiful place wearing beautiful clothes, the lighting is just right and you wish you could capture it in a photo — the makings of a perfect travel #OOTD photo!

Except, the photo came out bad and you totally looked awkward. Whether it be because of your lack of an IG boyfriend, or just a boyfriend, a friend, or a stranger tasked to take the pic with a lack of IG skills, it happens. And as you sulk in regret at that wasted photo opportunity and the knowledge that that picture you had in your head will never grace your IG feed, know that there is a feature that can remedy this.

Remember the Google Pixel 3? Yes, the smartphone that came in Not Pink.

In the process of reviewing the phone, I came upon a glorious realization: The Top Shot feature is exactly what I never knew I needed for my travel #OOTDS.

Let’s backtrack. Google’s Top Shot is a feature that automatically takes a number of photos to ensure you don’t miss the actual moment.

But, what it’s also good for is making sure you get that perfect Instagram shot. You’ll never have to ask someone to take your photo and insist they just keep tapping the shutter hoping one photo comes out good enough. Top Shot goes as far as recommending you the good takes. It’s the Instagram boyfriend you always wished you had!

This feature also works wonders for awkward posers like myself. I just have someone take a photo, make sure I move around during the shoot, and pick out the best candid-looking one.

The results? Photos that are good enough for your feed! Here are some samples from my recent trip to Paris.

I assure you, none of those looked that good in the initial photos but Top Shot came to my rescue.

Ladies, you’re welcome. Enjoy your prettier Instagram feed!

Dyson Airwrap hair tutorial and real-life hold test

Is it hard to use? Does it really work?



The Dyson Airwrap, ever since its announcement, has been the stuff of hairstyle dreams and legends. The high-tech curling iron revolutionizes the way we do our hair!

But, does it really work? Can a normal girl like myself actually get her hair to look as fab with this new-fangled hair gadget? I put it to the test.

In the video above, you see me doing my hair and the final looks. I try a total of two styles — curly and straight — and take my ‘do out and about to see if my hair would hold. And yes folks, this was only the second time I used the Airwrap on myself, ever.

The results impressed!

Tinder’s new feature tells you when a lot of people are swiping in the area

You’re welcome, Tinderella!



Dating app Tinder is finding more and more ways to get people swiping more.

Enter: The new Swipe Surge feature.

Let’s face it, not all areas or events are equal — in terms of swipe activity, that is. But, fret not. Tinder will now tell you if you’re in an area with a high swiping ratio to make sure you don’t miss out on all the fun.

Wait, what fun exactly? Well, according to Tinder, during a Swipe Surge, activity on the app is 15 times higher than normal. This means that the chance of finding the love of your life (or the love of tonight 😉) is higher by 250 percent and even chatting up some cuties becomes 33 percent faster. Yep, those are some serious computations.

To get in on the fun, enable push notifications so that the app can notify you when a Swipe Surge is happening in real time. Once you’ve joined the Swipe Surge party, you’ll be put on top swiping priority. Tinder will even show you who’s actively swiping at that moment!

Oh, what fun! Swipe Surge is being tested on iOS in select cities. Unfortunately, we don’t know which ones, or when it’s coming to all users; if it even ever will.
