Decisions Decisions - Smart Phones and Ecosystems

I’m in a quandary! We live in a connected smart phone world and the device you choose, is the one you’re going to have to live with day in and day out, come rain or shine… so it’s important to make the right decision!

I’ve always been an iPhone guy. I had the LG Prada phone back in 2007, before the iPhone was released in the UK, and then since then, I’ve only ever had Apple products. Obviously I’ve been aware of other brands of device, but I’ve never really been interested in them… until now!

Fragrance Review - Elysium by Roja Dove

 Last year, when I first decided I wanted to learn more about fragrances, I thought that designer was the best you could get. I had no idea that there was additional tiers to try. I attended a couple of launches from fragrance houses I’d never heard of, but what I experienced blew my mind. This was my introduction into the world of ‘niche fragrances’.

Hand crafted

Maybe it's a sign that I'm getting old, but lately I've been trying to work out ways of using technology less. I know that probably sounds odd, especially as you're reading this on the internet, using some sort of computer, smart phone or tablet, but it's true. When I was growing up in the 80's, everything was about the future. We had the Space Shuttle, Star Wars, Back to the Future, and the dawn of the computer game era. Back then, and indeed much into my teens and twenties, I've always been into the new thing. I've got no end of Apple products, I have a smart tv, and blu-ray. Everything you'd expect to find in a 'man pad'. But as much as I love some of the things we have available to us today, I do feel that things are getting a bit too much, to the detriment of our nature as human brings and individuals.
