I’m off to Wayhome this weekend! I had to order a bunch of extra batteries for both cameras over the weekend. One of my friends told me that at a festival when she was charging her battery, someone else took hers by accident and left her with a much older one. It’s an honest mistake that could totally happen to anybody.
So I decided to prevent this by putting sticker faces all over my batteries. I received this a while back from one of my Lootcrates, but I never found a perfect use for them until now. Nobody will steal batteries that look alive right?
Urbanspoon has now completely merged with Zomato! In case you haven’t noticed,all my previous Urbanspoon buttons have now auto-converted to Zomato ones. You can read my previous introduction to Zomato here.
I’m very excited for this change. Urbanspoon has needed a facelift for years. Zomato makes eating out much like a social network. The layout is beautiful and there are even curated recommendations. You can bookmark places to try out later, call for reservations or even book an Uber to the restaurant with the app.
If you used to follow me on Urbanspoon, you can now find me on Zomato at https://www.zomato.com/tianafeng.
I’m helping out with the SOCAN Songwriting Prize again. Do me a favour and vote for your favourite song! Coincidentally all the nominees this year happen to be by female artists. BOO YEAH GIRL POWER.
My favourite new daily accessory is the Power Wallet from The Photojojo. It’s a super functional faux-leather wallet/clutch that has a built in battery for charging my phone.
Inside it came with instructions and an adapter for my iPhone 5S. The battery can be charged by plugging the USB end to your computer or Apple blocks. On full charge, the wallet can charge around 1 and a half iPhones to full.
The phone fits right in when you are charging it so you can use it as a mini clutch. There are also many slots and sections for coins, cash and cards. Now I’m ready for a night on the town without my phone dying on me!
Summer music festival season is starting soon and the biggest problem I always run into is my phone battery not lasting until the end of the day. As a social media person, this is a big no no. I decided to prepare this year and bought the cheero Power Plus from Photojojo. Whenever you order on their website, a dinosaur comes along with your package.
This battery pack contains up to 10400mAh. This is always a number you should be paying attention to whenever buying any sort of portable battery. My iPhone 5S is around 1900 mAh, which means this battery can power up to 10 iPhones when on a full charge.I tend to have a lot of friends that try to borrow my batteries (I had smaller power sticks in the past) so this can be super useful! It even has two USB slots so two people can charge their phone at the same time.It also comes with the charging cable (iPhone cables you must provide) and a little pouch.
It’s a bit bigger than a regular power stick and heavier than I thought but I will totally not regret it when I’m out of juice in a field.
