8 most stunning phone colors of 2018

Which one is your favorite?



This year, it’s looking like color is a big thing in the smartphone space. New handset releases are coming in prettier colors and I am loving it. Out of all the many phones released this year, my favorite colors remain to be these devices.

Huawei P20 Pro in Twilight

This beautiful device is a definite scene-stealer. The purple-blue-green gradient is just such a beautiful and unique combo.

Sony Xperia XZ2 in Coral Pink

Sony’s departure from their traditional form factor was received with mixed emotions, but the color scheme was on point. It comes in White Silver, Black, Moss Green, and, my favorite, Coral Pink. It’s the daintiest shade of rose that I completely love.

Gradient is in this year and OPPO’s premium midrange contender sports a beautiful deep red gradient that glistens when light shines on it.

OPPO R15 in Nebula Purple

Another gradient phone, the OPPO R15 Pro goes from a violet hue to a deep dark purple. The barely-there color change is a very nice touch.

Samsung Galaxy S9 in Lilac Purple

The shiny glass back of the Galaxy S9 looks exceptionally good in lilac. Finally, a color option other than the usual blue, black, or silver.

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.
