Solo New York Cameron Rolltop: The bag I’ve been living in for months

Fits my laptop and all my other gadgets!



Sure, looking for the perfect gadget that matches your every need is important. But, you want to know what’s also vital? Finding a bag that will perfectly house all these gizmos and gadgets.

There’s a slew of bag options available these days, but finding one that fits your style — and all your stuff — is especially a challenge for girls. Most of the time, laptop bags just look too sporty for my casual taste. Not that I want something feminine; I just don’t want my pack to scream “I’m-going-to-do-sports!” when I use it every day or when I travel for leisure and event coverage. I’ve long been in search of the perfect neutral bag that can house all my gear and yet be presentable enough in whatever scenario I’m in.

Lo and behold, Solo’s Cameron Rolltop bag has been doing all that for me for the past few months.

From casual to girly, my everyday wardrobe changes on a daily basis. Thankfully, this bag is neutral enough to match those different #OOTDs. I actually love that this bag is a little “manly” as that adds a good contrasting detail to my (sometimes) feminine looks.

There are two pockets up front: the first has card slots inside and the second has pockets for pens and other tiny things, plus a clip that will hold your keys so you never have to fumble around in your bag to find them! The two open side pockets are also pretty useful — one has become the permanent place for my power bank, and the other, a spot for my water bottle. Even with my laptop, an external hard drive, and a slew of cords in the bag, this thing can still fit a change of clothes for the gym.

Yep, it’s pretty spacious! What did I tell you:

I’ve even lugged this thing around on my travels! The padded back features a slit that allows you to attach it to your luggage for effortless carrying. I’ve literally brought this bag around on coverage from country to country and it’s definitely proven its worth.

You don’t even have to worry about ruining the bag; it’s made of waxed canvas that’s supposed to look better with everyday wear and tear. (Yes folks, that aged look is in!) I especially love that the bottom is made from a different (easier to clean) material so I can put it down anywhere without dirtying it. Solo New York also has a five-year guarantee from defects for each purchase.

If you’re looking for a bag that’s stylish, durable, and can fit your laptop, plus all other stuff in between, the Cameron Rolltop bag from Solo New York may be for you.

Samsung’s new LED light cover is the phone case we’ve always wanted

It lights up with different designs!



The newest Samsung flagships have just been announced and they’re all great, but there was one thing that really caught my eye — mostly because it was literally glowing.

Yes, that is the Samsung Galaxy S10 in my hands, and yes, those are actual LED lights on the case. Just so you can appreciate how pretty it is, here’s the LED case in action:

So what exactly is going on here?

Samsung’s LED light case looks and acts like a normal smartphone cover. It comes in blue and white and has a smooth exterior. It’s also pretty thin, considering, and it has a sturdy feel.

Once it’s attached, the LED cover app will appear and you’ll have different LED designs to choose from. You can go for the “Mood lighting” option which was shown above, or…

You can choose LED icons. Just some of my favorites include this beating heart… 💓💕💖💘💞

… and this adorable doggo. 🐶

There are honestly so many to choose from, I’m not even kidding.

It even does a smartphone camera timer countdown…


… and just like that I am sold!

Cheers, Samsung! Just when I thought I was over boring smartphone cases, you shove a shiny, sparkling one in my face and I am very, very convinced.

PhoneSoap Go: A portable device that will sanitize your smartphone

It isn’t called PhoneSoap for nothing!



That smartphone in your purse can do so much but it also has 18 times more bacteria than the average public toilet. Before we continue, let that sink in.

Before you drop that phone you’re probably reading this article on, know that there’s a way to clean your handset and it doesn’t involve soap and water. Introducing: PhoneSoap.

PhoneSoap Go is the brand’s latest release. It’s a tiny chest that will literally clean your smartphone. It uses UV-C light to kill bacteria on your device. All you do is put your smartphone inside, tap the lightning button, wait 10 minutes for one cleaning cycle, and your phone should be germ-free.

The inside compartment can house your phone, no matter what size. It’s pretty spacious so it can even fit small everyday stuff like keys or wallets. Despite all that space, the PhoneSoap Go is designed for portability. This is PhoneSoap’s smallest device — something you can bring along on trips to make sure your handset is sanitized anywhere you go.

On the back of the chest is a USB-A and a USB-C port. This is because the PhoneSoap Go has a 7000mAh battery built into it. That’s enough for 45 cleaning cycles, or four phone charging cycles.

Yes, I said phone charging cycles. That’s because you can actually use it as a power bank. There’s even a slot for your charging cable so you can charge as you sanitize your phone. That means even if the whole cleaning cycle is just 10 minutes, you can leave your phone plugged in longer. There’s even “acoustic outlets” at the bottom so you can hear phone notifications.

Of course, unless I have a petri dish and some phone swabs, I won’t be able to say definitively that this thing can clean 99.99 percent of bacteria on your phone, as the brand claims. But, I will say that if it does end up sanitizing your phone in any capacity, that’s already a good enough deal considering how dirty these things supposedly are, and how much we’re holding on to them on a daily basis.

But really, more than phone cleaning, what you get is peace of mind. Honestly, my own (many, rotating) devices have been chilling a lot in my PhoneSoap ever since I got it.

The PhoneSoap Go retails for US$ 79.95 and you can get it from their website.
