Nail Stickers: Born Pretty Store Review

Today I would like to show a product that Born Pretty Store sent me some time ago, namely silver nail art stickers. I'm only showing you stickers in the shape of the heart, but the variety of the stickers is really great - flowers, butterflies, snowflakes (which I'll definitely use in the winter time!) and many many more. You can check them out on the Born Pretty Store. I wanted to try out pattern #1, but sadly it was out of stock, so I chose #6. You can either get silver or gold stickers, whatever you prefer.

Twitter Updates Camera Looks Similar To Instagram

Micro blogging site, Twitter introduced a revamped version of its camera that has been designed to promote sharing of photos and videos on the network that is otherwise text centric. When the users swipe left on the timeline on the updated app the camera can be seen and allows you to take a picture or take a looping video of up to two minutes by tapping or holding a circular capture button. The users can also tap a live button that begins broadcasting a stream to the followers directly from Twitter.

WD My Cloud Home Review

WD's My Cloud Home provides storage you can access with a smart TV, secures personal cloud data, and it looks good too. Find out more in our My Cloud Home Personal Cloud review.
Should I Buy The WD My Cloud Home?
The design and styling of the hardware in the My Cloud Home is top-notch, with all its issues lying in the software components provided for it. The underlying platform is a solid one for which WD hardware engineers should be proud, and the software team needs to better support.
The My Cloud Home can provide DLNA storage to access with a smart TV or a personal cloud solution, but those that want more should consider Synology, QNAP or the higher-end WD My Cloud products.

Vampire Weekend - Father of the Bride Music Album Reviews

Vampire Weekend return with a shaggy, sprawling double album all about rebirth, contentment, and the reclamation of light.
From the beginning, Vampire Weekend were winners: charming, relatively lighthearted; Columbia students one year, festival headliners the next. They had cute sweaters and smart jokes; they wrote with wit and curiosity about the tapestry of privileged life; they carried themselves with an almost infuriating sparkle. But they were also manic, weird, and provocatively cross-cultural, mixing up digital dancehall and string sections, Latin punk and raga in ways that didn’t quite fit. And despite their superficial politeness, there was something deeply antagonistic about them, the vestigial bite of suburban kids who grew up loving punk and hardcore but never quite felt entitled to its anger, the indie-rock band bent on breaking up the monopoly rock held over guitar-based music.

Berry Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are a good source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, plus they have fiber, iron and calcium. Here they're mixed with a fruity base and refrigerated until the chia seeds expand to form a thick, creamy texture similar to tapioca. Pudding for breakfast? We're in.

Gradient + Studs Nail Art

Today I felt like doing gradient on my nails and I was thinking about a colour combination, which I'd like the most. I thought about doing something with blue or green, but then I noticed Essie - Capri, that I have and that I haven't used so much. It's a pretty raspberry red colour and since I don't really like painting my nails only with red I decided to mix it up with a pretty peach colour also from Essie, which is called Tart Deco. To me these colours look beautiful together. At the end I decided to give this girly manicure a spin and I added gold studs from Born Pretty Store. I'm definitely loving this look:D Let me know in the comments if you like it as well!

Yoyotech Warbird RS10 V2 Review

Plenty of power for playing games at up to 4K resolutions, the only drawback is the absence of an SSD. But you can add one when you order if you can stretch your budget a little. Here's our YoyoTech Warbird RS10 V2 review
Should I Buy The Yoyotech Warbird RS10 V2?
The YoyoTech Warbird RS10 V2 delivers high-performance gaming at a reasonable price. The lack of an SSD makes the system feel less responsive in general use, but there’s plenty of storage available for a large game library. Warranty terms could be more competitive at this price.

Aorus 15 X9 Review

It’s not perfect, but the beefy RTX 2070 helps the Aorus 15 X9 accelerate beyond its rivals. Here's our full review.
Should I Buy The Aorus 15 X9?
The Aorus 15 X9 suffers from middling build quality, could have a better screen and it’s sometimes too loud – but its full-fat RTX 2070 is an impressive slab of gaming hardware.
It’s not the best gaming laptop, but it’s worth considering if you want more gaming grunt than most rivals provide.

Sky vs Virgin TV & Broadband

Choosing a TV and broadband package isn't easy, with so many different elements to think about. Here we compare Sky Q and Virgin in a number of different areas to help you choose.
Should I Buy The Sky Q Or Virgin V6?
Virgin might be the best option here if you want the fastest broadband but Sky has a more well-rounded package as long as you don't mind a satellite dish on your house.
Sky Q edges in front on number of elements including a more modern box and interface as well as better Ultra HD content and other handy features like advanced Netflix integration.

Facebook Adds Secret Crush Feature As A Boost For Dating Service

The new feature will allow the users to find out if any of their friends on Facebook are romantically interested in them. The services can only be availed by users aged 18 years or above and will be completely free of advertisements and other paid features.

L7 - Scatter the Rats Music Album Reviews

The grunge act's first LP in 20 years fails to summon the revolutionary fire that made them such a force of nature in the mid-'90s.
Donita Sparks, the fearless vocalist and guitarist for the Los Angeles grunge four-piece L7, likes to trot out a pet sound bite during interviews. “We’re a meat-and-potatoes rock band with a conscience and some humor,” she told The Current last year. “We just want to [be] meat-and-potatoes L7,” she said in 2015, around the time the band embarked on a reunion tour. To promote Scatter the Rats, their first new material in 20 years, she’s quoted in an updated band bio saying, “I think it’s good for people to enjoy a meat-and-potatoes rock band for a change.”

Local Natives - Violet Street Music Album Reviews

The L.A. band has long carried the flag for a particular strain of SoCal indie, but the follow-up to 2016’s fashionably yearning Sunlit Youth sounds both more personal and more timeless.
Local Natives epitomized L.A. indie with the airy harmonies, hirsute style, and earnest ambition of their lovably scrappy debut, 2010’s Gorilla Manor. As the decade comes to a close, they still do. A collaboration with the director Van Alpert and visual artist Public-Library on the video for the Shawn Everett-produced single “Café Amarillo” puts Local Natives just one degree of separation from Post Malone, Drake, Kacey Musgraves, and Nike, rather than Grizzly Bear and Fleet Foxes. But that kind of development is part of the inevitable gentrification that comes with long-term success. In 2019, you can hear the music of recent L.A. emigre Wild Nothing in 24 Hour Fitness and pay $3000 a month to call Wavves your landlord.

Pile - Green and Gray Music Album Reviews

The seventh album from the Boston noise-rock band revels in a heightened level of studio ambition without losing its snarling ferocity.
Midway through Pile’s new album comes one of the best and most unusual protest songs of the Trump era. Its title, “The Soft Hands of Stephen Miller,” resembles an ironic in-joke. Except Pile’s singer Rick Maguire is not at all joking. Over a serrated guitar riff that sounds like a Jesus Lizard record-skip—relentlessly repeating even when every other instrument strives to sabotage it—Maguire lays into the president’s xenophobic policy advisor. It’s part diagnosis, part roast: The words “stiff pale shell,” alleged impotence, and a dig at Miller’s refugee great-grandmother all come into play. Yet there is also a nauseous glimmer of recognition. “That dude is the same age as me,” Maguire said in a recent interview, “and it’s like, what happened to you?” When the singer repeats the word “How?” in a throat-wrecking yelp, it mostly sounds like he is crying “H…

OMB Peezy - Preacher to the Streets Music Album Reviews

The Sacramento rapper spends most of his second album conscience-stricken, trying to explain the difference between being immoral and being corrupted.
While OMB Peezy’s debut album, last year’s Loyalty Over Love, was a sort of personalized therapy, this is almost instructional, a running inner-monologue on the keys to making it out and subsequently dealing with withdrawal symptoms that come with not knowing anything else. Peezy has spent most of his life somewhere in the middle of two things—Mobile, Alabama and Sacramento, California, a burgeoning rapper and hustler—and on Preacher to the Streets, he is seeking a more balanced discourse between the angel and the devil on his shoulders.

Chicken and Rice Casserole

Chicken and Rice is a quick and easy meal that comes together in under 20 minutes. I’m sharing all the keys to success that will make this one a family-favorite.

Aztec Print Nail Art

Today I'm showing you a very simple version of aztec print, which I think is one of the coolest nail designs that there are. Endless possibilities of various combinations is what I truly like about this nail design. After doing this one, I totally feel like going for a bit more complicated version, maybe with pastel colours? I don't know yet, we'll see:D But for now, I hope you're gonna enjoy this one!

StarTech.com Thunderbolt 3 Dual 4K Docking Station Review

The StarTech.com Thunderbolt 3 Dual 4K Docking Station can connect your laptop with two 4K displays at 60Hz, and offer you more ports than you have devices.
Should I Buy The StarTech.com Thunderbolt 3 Dual-4K Docking Station?
This docking station can handle most device combinations (with five USB-A, one USB-C and two Thunderbolt 3 ports, plus dual-display support (4K at 60Hz), Ethernet and an SD Card reader for adding portable storage.

Overclockers Hoplite Review

Overclocker's Hoplite is powered by the AMD Ryzen 2700X and the RTX 2060 WindForce making it a gaming powerhouse at 1080p.
Should I Buy The Overclockers Hoplite? The Hoplite is an extremely powerful out of the box system, requiring very little set up before it can be used thanks to the technicians over at Overclockers. It runs games at over 120fps at 1080p and will continue to do so for the next few years, but it will struggle to reach 60+fps at a 4K resolution.

Honor 20 Lite Review

The first phone from the Honor 20 series, the Lite demonstrates you can get a solid phone for a very reasonable price.
Should I Buy The Honor 20 Lite?
More expensive than the Honor 10 Lite, but with upgraded cameras, the 20 Lite is still good value and a good Android phone.

Detective Pikachu Movie Review

Is Detective Pikachu the very best, like no film ever was? We review the first ever live action Pokémon movie
Should I Buy the Detective Pikachu?
Detective Pikachu could have been a disaster, but instead it's really a bit of a delight. A game cast, robust world-building, and a sharp script combine to produce a film that should appeal equally to new fans and nostalgia-driven millennials.
It's a low bar to clear, but this is the best videogame movie yet - by some way.

Kevin Abstract - ARIZONA BABY Music Album Reviews

The BROCKHAMPTON star’s latest solo album is an often powerful document by a queer artist who has weathered life’s bruises.
In a move inspired by Shia LaBeouf’s bemusing catalog of durational work, Kevin Abstract recently endured 10 hours on a treadmill on a suburban street of his hometown, Corpus Christi, Tex. While running, the BROCKHAMPTON singer and rapper multi-tasked: He took selfies, signed sneakers, posed with a baby, and mumbled along to the chorus of his recent single, the yearning gay love song “Baby Boy.” Abstract vaguely told one fan that the performance was to teach empathy—indeed, you could interpret it as an allegory for the upstream battle to make it out of suburbia for so many kids—but that didn’t save it from feeling like a stunt.

I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu (2019) Sinhala Subtitles

Nick Murphy - Run Fast Sleep Naked Music Album Reviews

The second album from the musician formerly known as Chet Faker is at once overstuffed and underwhelming.
Nick Murphy was once the bedroom musician Chet Faker. In 2011, his sullen, downtempo cover of Blackstreet’s classic ’90s R&B jam “No Diggity” rocketed to the top of the Hype Machine chart, the peak of virality in the age of MP3 blogs. His instantaneous ascent portended bigger genre trends in the coming half-decade: In the early 2010s, “chill” indie electronica was emerging as a form of resistance against the hyper-manic EDM boom. Brooding auteurs like How to Dress Well and Rhye bubbled up with ambient, trip-hoppy alternative R&B. Chet Faker was an Australian dude with a beard who belonged to both the burgeoning worlds of Majestic Casual-core and white dudes singing soul music. He could make an EP with Flume, then turn around and record stripped-down covers of Burial on the Rhodes.

Judy and the Jerks - Music for Donuts EP Music Album Reviews

The Mississippi punk four-piece celebrate slugs, butter, lard, chewing gum—the important things.
Judy and the Jerks make food-fight music. This isn’t just because the punk four-piece have dubbed their latest EP Music for Donuts—although there is plenty of butter, lard, and other substances that would be a pain in the ass to get out of your hair. Their music splatters like mashed potatoes against concrete walls; it squirts like a flattened plastic ketchup bottle. There are brief pauses where a bassline flutters alone, as if reloading a spork and preparing for further warfare.

Rodrigo y Gabriela - Mettavolution Music Album Reviews

The Mexican duo’s first album in five years applies their customary virtuoso classical guitar to six short originals and a 19-minute cover of Pink Floyd’s “Echoes.”
The story of Rodrigo y Gabriela’s big break almost sounds made up. In 2006, a year in which “thrash metal / instrumental flamenco / acoustic covers” was something you might actually have seen on the MySpace page of a band trying to steal a second glance with facetious tags, the duo emerged delivering a genuine fusion of all those things with dead-serious eyes and the bona fides to back it up. Their self-titled second studio album from that year—complete with covers of Metallica and Led Zeppelin standards—debuted at No. 1 in Ireland, where they’d been living, busking, and refining their two-classical-guitar m.o. after several years stalling out in Mexico’s metal scene. The names below them on that week’s top ten were certainly no jokes: Kelly Clarkson, Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay, Gorillaz, Johnny Cash.

Queen of Sheba Cake

This Queen of Sheba cake, a French classic, gets a minor update with less sugar and butter and a whisper of flaky sea salt on top—all of which lets the flavor of a special chocolate shine. Whipping a greater portion of the sugar into the egg whites makes them less easy to overbeat and creates a pleasing crust on top that contrasts with the moist and creamy interior.

Big Leopard Print Nail Art

Today I'm showing you this super fun nail design that I saw some time ago on MissJenFabulous channel. First of all I'm a great fan of neons and second of all this was the first time that I saw large leopard print on nails, so I knew I need to try it out. I can't even tell you how much I LOVE this design:D Neons and many different colours what make this design so fun and eye-catching. Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments down below!

Google To Launch Auto-Delete Function For Location And Web Activity

Search engine giant Google will soon allow the users to auto-delete location history and more private data in rolling intervals of either three months or 18 months. The announcement was made by Google May 1, 2019.
The search engine in its announcement said, “Choose a time limit for how long you want your activity data to be saved—3- or 18-months—and any data older than that will be automatically deleted from your account on an ongoing basis”.

Microsoft Surface Buds Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

Microsoft is said to be working on Surface Buds, its own wireless earbuds that will rival Apple's AirPods and Samsung's Galaxy Buds. Here's what we know.
Amazon was recently rumoured to be working on its own EchoPods, and now it would appear that Microsoft is also planning its own pair of wireless earbuds with the upcoming Surface Buds.

Kevin Morby - Oh My God Music Album Reviews

Morby’s spare fifth solo album conjures memories of Bob Dylan’s gospel-phase. The songs are lovingly performed but begin to fade into indistinguishable.
Across four solo albums (and turns in bands like Woods and the Babies), Kevin Morby has always worn his influences on his sleeve. Or record sleeves if you will: Depending on your Ikea shelf space or online playlists, one might hear throughlines to Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde and Leonard Cohen’s New Skin for the Old Ceremony, the rock-as-savior gestures of Spiritualized and Springsteen. Or maybe you hear Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Randy Newman, and the War on Drugs instead. Depending on the line and moment, Morby can deftly emulate all of the above. The more you appreciate this rock canon, the more likely that Morby hit some of your sweet spots. Even when it came to covering the feral punk of the Germs, Morby found a way to make “Caught in my Eye” sound like a lost Dylan cut.

The Wandering Earth (2019) Sinhala Subtitles

DJ Nate - Take Off Mode Music Album Reviews

As he returns to the intricate polyrhythms and hypnotic vocal chops of footwork, the Chicago producer’s approach remains almost single-minded in its focus.
The first thing that many outside Chicago’s footworking community ever heard from its native son DJ Nate was “Hatas Our Motivation,” a dizzying track in which the titular phrase, gravelly and defiant, looped ad nauseum over rapid-fire drum machine as brooding synths and pitched-down vocal samples churned ominously underneath. It was 2010, and Nate, just 20 years old, was the first footwork artist to sign to Planet Mu, a UK label better known for jewel-toned IDM. To outsiders, it sounded like a hole had opened in the earth’s crust, exposing some heretofore undiscovered gyroscopic contraption swiveling below. Four months before Planet Mu’s compilation Bangs & Works Vol. 1 shone an international spotlight on the Chicago footwork scene, it was Nate’s intricate polyrhythms and hypnotic vocal chops that first captured the radical stra…

Club Night - What Life Music Album Reviews

The Oakland quintet’s debut album is a spirited indie-emo blend driven by intricate underlying themes, channeling a slew of influences even as it exists in a space of its own.
To Club Night, dystopia is just an arm’s reach away. On their full-length debut What Life, the band ensconce this sense of foreboding in snappy, math-rock-inspired melodies and whimsical instrumentation. Frontman Josh Bertram, as an unabashed fan of ’90s emo cult icons Cap’n Jazz, cites Tim Kinsella as a personal mentor. What Life is crisper and more clear-cut than Cap’n Jazz’s sole album, trading Kinsella’s screamy grit for the vivacious spirit of Los Campesinos! At various points, Club Night evoke the splendor of The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, the freaky jubilance of Architecture in Helsinki, and the twinkling fuzz of early Now, Now.

Jackie Mendoza - LuvHz EP Music Album Reviews

The Mexican American electro-pop artist’s debut EP, produced with Panda Bear collaborator Rusty Santos, is a restless patchwork of genre-smashing sounds.
Jackie Mendoza has packed a lot of life into 26 years. She’s been a resident of Mexico, California, and New York. She’s created two minor pop hits with “Islands” and “La Luz.” And now, with the release of her debut EP LuvHz, she’s worked with one of avant-indie’s oddest producers, Rusty Santos (who worked on Panda Bear’s latest, Buoys). That collective experience could have fed into a pop project defined by a strong sensibility and pointed perspective on the world. Instead, LuvHz is aimless.
