Mother’s Day gadget gift guide

Published

on

Ah, mothers. What do we do without them?

Admittedly, we have all been a pain to our moms at some point in our lives (and maybe until now, most definitely until now). This is the true test of a mother’s undying love — that they tolerate us, after all these years.


This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day, the perfect holiday to show our love and appreciation to our biggest fan despite how sucky we can get/are as people.

Here are gadget gift suggestions for the main women in our lives.

ILIFE V7 Sweeping Robot Home Vacuum – $146.99

This vacuum will do the work for her, not just on Mother’s Day but every day that comes after! This nifty gadget takes the work off your mom’s hands. (Because if you’re not going to do the chores she asked you to do, someone/something has to!)

 

Parrot Flower Pot – PhP 7,990

This smart planter has built-in sensors that can monitor your plant’s needs — sort of like how mothers (without us saying anything) know what’s better for us, even if we never listen.

It also has a “plant sitter” mode, useful for days your mom decides to go on well-deserved vacations (from you). It comes with a free app!

 

Vivo V5 Plus – PhP 19,990

You could stop giving your mum headaches, or you could just document the few times you actually do good and make her happy. This is a great smartphone that will capture your mother’s every smile!

Fitbit Alta HR – $129.95 (PhP 6,479)

Give the gift of health! This fitness wearable will help your mom monitor her sleep, physical activities, and heart rate — which means you have a gauge of how mad she is the next time you do something stupid. It also comes in coral and fuchsia.

 

JBL Pulse 2 Bluetooth Speaker – $99.99

This thing is not only good on the eyes, it’s good on the ears, too! This powerful wireless speaker can drown out your whining, connect via Bluetooth, has 10 hours of play time, and it gives a beautiful light show. It’s splash-proof, as well!

 

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X – $159.99

For the mother who likes her mobile games, here’s a gift that will ensure she can play all the Bejewelled she wants as she ignores more of your spoiled whining.

 

Philips Hue Bloom – $59.99

Something for the home she’s lovingly kept — with no help from your lazy self. Control light settings with your phone and save energy with LED technology.

 

Dyson Supersonic – $494.99

Here’s a top-of-the-line, high-tech hair blower because your mom only deserves the best. (I mean, in theory, but she also has you so…) It has four heat settings, three airflow settings, and a removable filter.

 

HP Sprocket Photo Printer – $129.99

This printer will allow mom to print beautiful family memories (minus all the fights you picked) to decorate the house with! It’s small, compact, and connects via Bluetooth for fuss-free operation.

 

Kindle Paperwhite – $99.99

The perfect device for a mom who loves to read! A single battery charge lasts for weeks; that’s pretty long — almost as long as your mom’s undying patience for you!

Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System – $129.99

Create the perfect cup of coffee for the perfect mother, because honestly, she needs all the energy to deal with your antics all the way into adulthood.

 

Cheers to all the great, wonderful women whose love we mostly don’t deserve (what, with all our millennial whining)! To be a mother is an extraordinary feat, and I could only aspire to be as great a person as my mother is (and, fine, yours too).

Happy Mother’s Day!

The Huawei Watch GT is a best seller

Some good news for Huawei

Published

on

The Huawei Watch GT has now sold over two million units worldwide — that’s the best number among other Huawei smartwatches.

According to data from analyst firm IDC on global wearable vendors in the first quarter of 2019, Huawei has achieved year-on-year growth of 282.2% against the same quarter in 2018. In that period last year, Huawei shipped five million units in total which puts it among the top three global wearable vendors.


The Huawei Watch GT was first launched in October 2018 alongside the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and other products by the company.

This is a bit of good news for Huawei who is currently facing perhaps its toughest challenge to date following a ban by the US government over security issues.

The company hasn’t sat idly by as reports indicate it is working on its own operating system should the ban persist. Huawei has also launched a “Special Warranty Program” that promises 100% refund.

How to wear red: 3 stylish pairings to try

Those red pieces shouldn’t be gathering dust

Published

on

It’s easy to think that red is best worn sparingly or just as an accent. It is after all, such a bold, eye-catching color. We normally wear a pair of red heels to add a pop of color to an all-black ensemble, or a cute red top to go with neutral colored bottoms. We rarely buy something red for every day use, whether that’s a purse or a phone, because it just won’t go well with most of our outfits.

This is exactly why we sometimes feel like we have nothing to wear — when we build a wardrobe without considering new color pairings and when we reserve certain colors for special occasions. Here are three new combinations to try with those red pieces that don’t see the light of day (or night) as often as they should:


Red + blush pink: spring to summer

Hybrid smartwatch, Fossil Q Jacqueline; blazer, Stradivarius; slip dress, Fleur du Mal; belt bag, Mango; heels, Mint & Rose.

This color combination will give you an instant flirty, feminine look especially when you do it with a silk slip dress and strappy sandals. Give it a little bit more structure by throwing on a red blazer, and stick to the same tonal colors when accessorizing to look more put together. You can dress it up with taller heels, or down with flats.

Red + tan: end of summer to fall

Smartphone, Honor View 20 Moschino Edition; crop top and pants, Aritzia; bag, J. Crew; mules, Madewell; coin necklace, myartisanstore on Etsy; hair clips, Machete.

Be a wee bit more unpredictable by pairing red with the brown pieces in your closet. A red crop top worn with tan high waist pants and mules is a good departure from the light, breezy looks you’re used to wearing during summer. When temperatures dip, add a coat in similar brown tones to stay warm. I used to be so averse to wearing this color combination but it’s now one of my favorites!

Red + red: winter to early spring

Sunglasses, Spectacles 2 Veronica by Snapchat; sweater, Everlane; shorts, Aritzia; boots, Mango; 3-in-1 laptop tote, Parfois; earrings, Machete.

Tonal dressing is my go-to when I’m in a hurry to get ready in the morning and it doesn’t just apply to neutrals. Try wearing red on red with your thigh-high boots especially during winter when everyone else is sporting the same black coat. If you’re feeling feisty, go all-red even down to your shoes and purse and you’ll be surprised how powerful it will make you feel. Otherwise, you’re welcome to tone it down with the black staples you already have.

From these three looks alone, you can create more: turn the slip dress into a skirt by wearing the red sweater over it, or pair the crop top with the shorts and nude heels when the weather is scorching and unforgiving. The possibilities are endless! As long as you see red to be the versatile color that it actually is, you’ll never run out of looks to try, and that red phone you carry every day will never clash with your look again.

Xiaomi Mi AirDots Pro: Price and availability in the Philippines

The AirPods competitor from Xiaomi

Published

on

Xiaomi‘s awaited Apple AirPods copycat has landed in the Philippines. The AirDots Pro was initially introduced earlier this year and you can finally get your own pair of wireless Bluetooth earphones.

There’s no denying that the Xiaomi’s AirDots Pro strongly resembles Apple’s AirPods. Even their names are quite similar; however, the AirDots Pro doesn’t have the same premium price of Apple’s accessory.


The AirDots Pro is a pair of wireless earphones that has a Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, noise-canceling microphones, and touch controls. According to Xiaomi, battery life is up to four hours, while the charging case offers an extra 10 hours. Both Android and iOS are supported by the AirDots Pro.

Through Mi Authorized Stores in the Philippines, the AirDots Pro retails for PhP 3,490. It’s slightly pricier than its launch price in China, but at least you don’t have to ship it anymore. Also, it’s way cheaper than the AirPods.
