I took some time to think about the future of THE BUZZ and I guess I can't keep posting randomly. So, I've decided how often I will be posting blog posts. Here's the days I will start posting from now: Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. These are the days I will DEFINITELY be making a post on my Blog, but I will also be posting on any other days if I feel like it. This is an exciting new chapter for THE BUZZ and I'm hoping you guys are happy about the schedule!
Phew, that's the official stuff done :)
I've not done much today, I just got back from School, but thankfully the Exam's are over and its time to chill... Actually, not having done much today gives me a good opportunity to talk about Sushi. I recently started loving Sushi. I just love how simple and delicious it is. I know some people have think "What's so nice about seaweed and raw fish?", and I had the same attitude until recently, but sometimes, its the simple things that taste the best. Plus, it's so much more than seaweed and raw fish :) Enough talking, please just enjoy this lovely picture of my plate of Sushi the other day... If you like or hate Sushi, feel free to let me know in the comments.
I don't think I've ever reviewed a Pen before...Oh well, there's a first time for everything :)
The reason I chose to review this Pen was because it is, to put it very simply, great. So, this Pen is the Lamy Safari. I love how sleek in design it is. It's made out of ABS Plastic which makes it nice and light to carry around with you. Lamy have done what many can't do, and that is the fact that they made something out of Plastic that doesn't feel cheap. The Pen actually feels very premium in the hand. I've owned (cheap) Fountain Pens in the past, and they irritate me, to say the least. This is due to the fact that they always leaked and were generally problematic and annoying. The Lamy is different. It very rarely leaks and is so easy to use. This Pen also writes fantastically. I have been using it to make notes, and, even though I tend to write very fast, the Lamy writes well and smoothly. Also, in comparison to most Fountain Pen Inks, the Lamy Ink seems to dry fairly quicker. All in all, the Lamy is a great Pen and is fairly cheap for a Pen of its Quality (£5 - £10). Please enjoy the nice picture of my Matte Black Lamy below...
I took some time out today to relax and sit down while drinking a nice cup of Darjeeling. I've been revising a lot for exams, and it is easy to get stressed out by revision, so a cup of Tea is exactly what I needed to rejuvenate. Darjeeling is a great Tea, it is very delicate in taste. As you take a sip, the first flavours you get are fairly herbal and floral, and just before you swallow, you get a nice little 'shot' of sweetness. Overall, one of my favourite Teas.
Also, Nokia hasn't got in touch with me about the Lumia's for review yet, but I'm hoping after Christmas they will send me a Phone. Thats about it folks, hope you are all doing great!
What is up guys?
So, I've been busy lately. I got in touch with Nokia and they will be sending me the Nokia Lumia 1020 and 920 to review soon. It might take a while, but they said that as soon as there are units available, they will send them to me to review. I really look forward seeing these amazing phones, and showing you guys what I think of them, and I want to thank Nokia for agreeing to sending me the phones. Of course, the review will be posted in Tech Corner, so keep an eye out for it in the next few weeks.
What's up guys? Sorry, its been a while. I've just got back to school recently and they piled on the exams and the homework straight away, so I've been trying to get a chance to write a post, and today has been quite chilled, so why not? I'm not happy with posting so inconsistently like I have been recently, so I'm coming up with what days and how often I will post, so you guys can count on me to post on these days.
Went to Pizza Express today. I started the evening off with a lovely San Pellegrino Blood Orange drink, and it was nice and sweet. I think I prefer it over the San Pellegrino Lemon.
Being vegetarian limited my choice a bit, but I went for the Pomodoro Pesto Leggera Romano Pizza. It is basically a Pesto Pizza on a thin base with a hole cut in the middle filled with lovely salad. It was a great choice.
For dessert, I got a lovely Gelato Sundae with Chocolate sauce. It was great and better than most Sundaes I've had. It was a great way to end the meal.
So, hope you guys stay awesome!
Whats going on guys? Hope you are all doing great. Had some nice weather here today. It rained in the morning, of course :), but it started to get nice when I got back from School. Given the weather situation, I decided to go Penny Boarding with my Brother. It was nice to Penny Board without having to clean my board after due to the deck getting muddy (I love the white deck, but its a pain to clean!). We found this nice hill which gave some speed to the board, however the board speed wobbled a bit. Thats about it. Probably going to do some School Work in a bit, so I guess its time to wrap up this Blog :(. Also, I took these pictures today while Penny boarding, so please enjoy. Stay safe and keep being awesome!
Whats up guys? Todays been a pretty chilled day. I just enjoyed a nice Latte made with a Nespresso Latissima + Machine. Its a great machine, and makes consistent Barista quality Coffee. The thing thats great about Nespresso is that, unlike many other cheaper Coffee Machines, all it takes to make a great Coffee is putting the Pod in the machine and pressing the button to choose the Coffee you desire. Also, Nespresso really looks after you. If anything happens to your Machine while it is still under guarantee, all you need to do is send Nespresso your Machine. Whilst they repair it, they provide you with a temporary Machine so you can still enjoy Coffee when your Machine is being fixed. I guess the only downside is the price. Im not sure the full price (because my Dad received the Machine as a gift) but I think its about £400. I guess if you are really intent about getting a Coffee Machine that does it all for you, you would pay the premium price. That being said, it is worth every penny. My favourite Nespresso Pod is definitely Dulsao Brazil, its a nice Pod made with Brazillian Coffee Beans and is milder than most other Nespresso Pods. Ok, so time to wrap up todays Blog. Hope everythings ok!
Hows it going guys? So, last night I went to Ikea with my family to pick up some stuff. I remember, as a kid, I would always hate going and bug my parents to leave quickly. This time was different. Ikea has so many nice things for pretty cheap prices. Its one of those shops where you go in and want to buy everything :) I love how many minimalist things they have. I'm hoping to get this nice desk for my room, as my current one is falling apart. I bought a nice Mug and a (well needed) Desk Lamp. I will probably write about the Mug on TeaTime, so make sure to check it out soon. I also like the Desk Lamp I bought, basically my criteria for finding which Desk Lamp to buy was whichever one looked most like the Lamp in the Pixar intro :) So, hope you guys are all good. Stay safe,
Hey guys, hope you are all alright. Todays been tiring, so I've been looking forward to getting home, sitting down with a nice cup of Tea and writing this post. I checked the Stats on my website today, and the visitors have been considerably higher than previous days, so I want to thank you guys for visiting, and please do visit again as it is your views and comments that keep me going! Also, this site is for you guys, so give me some feedback if you like.
So I spent some more time Penny Boarding this morning, and I'm getting more used to the Board. It just feels so easy to ride and the thing turns corners so comfortably and easily. Just loving it, a great thing to ride around when you are bored. How did you guys like my Board colour? Let me know in the comments. Ok, so time to wrap up this Blog. Hope you are all good and stay safe,
Hey guys, apologies for not posting lately. I've been procrastinating for ages to make another post, but now I'm glad I have. I've been really busy with School, so its been hard. That said, hello again :)
You have probably noticed by now that the blog has a new look, thats because it has. I like this new theme and I chose some great new fonts. It feels like the Blog has a new and fresh vibe, and thats great. Please give me some feedback on the the new feel of the Blog.
So, on to the main topic. I ordered a Penny (style) Board a few days ago and it arrived today. Penny Boards are pretty expensive (£80 rrp) so I looked around and found this great Penny Style Board for a considerably cheaper price.
Lets start off with Packaging. Its nice and simple, as you can see there is an outline of the Board and a small circular window that exposes the logo of the Board.Overall, I like it, its simple and effective.
Ok, so these boards are mine and my brothers. Mine is the one on top (White deck with Yellow wheels). It looks visually very nice and minimalist. The deck is plastic with a 'Honeycomb' grip, which makes it different from normal Skateboards that have Grip Tape. The wheels are fairly soft plastic, giving the board the ability to turn very sharply.
Moving on to how it feels, which of course is the most important part of this review. This board is amazingly smooth, fast and light. It is just so easy to ride, you can push off and cruise for a long time. As I mentioned before, it is capable of turning well. When turning, the board feels very different to my Skateboard (that I had to loosen the trucks of so I could turn easier) in the way that it is very stable but turns when you apply some pressure on the wheels by leaning. Whereas, my Skateboard was harder to manoeuvre and felt less stable. The board does take some getting used to due to its size. It is 22" long and 6" wide. On my first ride on the Board, I placed my foot too far back because I was used to the length of a standard Skateboard. Overall, this is a great Board. It is fun to ride and addictive. I really recommend this and I hope to use it a lot to get around.
So its time to wrap up this Blog post. I hope you are all fine and I hope to publish posts more regularly now.
A few weeks ago, I've started eating Porridge (or Oatmeal as the Americans call it) in the mornings. Why eat that horrible 'Gruel' you say? Well in this post I'm gonna change your mind about Porridge and give you some good suggestions as to how to make and serve your Porridge.
What makes Porridge so good?
Porridge contains things that help you have a sharper brain, lower cholesterol levels and lose weight. Oats also are good for the Heart and they even scour Artery walls!
What Porridge should I get?
I use Flahavans Irish Porridge Oats (similar to the picture above). They are a great quality Oat and not too expensive either. It is less processed than most oats (such as rolled jumbo oats, for example) and therefore tastes much nicer.
How to make Porridge
Making Porridge is pretty simple. All you need is a boiling pan, 1 cup of porridge oats, 2 cups of milk (or water), some sugar and some salt. Start off by putting the 2 cups of milk and the 1 cup of Porridge oats into the boiling pan, stir and put it on a medium - low heat. Bring to the boil (while you are waiting for it to boil, its a good idea to add a few teaspoons of sugar and a pinch of salt). I also like to crumble up some Weetabix and mix that in, as it gives a nice taste. When it has boiled, bring to a low heat and simmer for 3 - 4 minutes. Pour it into your bowl and there you go, a nice bowl of Porridge! Top off with some nuts or a drizzle of Honey if you feel like it. Simple isn't it?
So, for those of you that thought Porridge was a useless food that just filled you up and tasted disgusting, I hope I have changed your mind. Hope you enjoyed it!
It seems smartphone giant Samsung has either ran out of ideas or they have come up with a cunning PR stunt. Samsung started a competition which lets the public decide how their new flexible display shall be used. Of course, there is a cash prize. The only downside is that you have to be living in USA or Columbia to enter. Heres the link to the
Hi guys. THE BUZZ has loads of things, but what it doesn't have is a logo. I would like the logo to be simple, minimalistic, sleek and eye catching. Just text should do, nothing more. If you are able to create me a logo for free, then please let me know on the Contact Me page and we will discuss it from there. Cheers!
I first saw this car in an old episode of Top Gear that I watching. The video clip below shows how amazing this car is on the track. It is very, very fast. How fast? It can do 60mph in 2.5 seconds. Just thought I'd put that out there :) With the body being made by Carbon Fibre, this car is also very light. About the weight of a Ford Fiesta. I could talk all day about specs, but lets talk about how the car looks. This car is a monster. It somewhat resembles a snake. I love how Lamborghini have given this car a diamond like design by giving it a load of sharp edges. It is just great. So, if you have a couple of million pounds to spend, heres an idea :) Why so expensive, Lamborghini?
PS: I don't own this video clip in any way. No copyright infringement intended.
Hope you enjoyed this post and appreciate how awesome this supercar is!
Recently I went down to the UEFA Champions Festival and in the Discover Ford area, they had Ken Block's Rally car. I guess you are probably thinking, who is Ken Block? Well, basically he's a rally driver who likes to sharpen his skills by taking part in a thing called Gymkhana. Now, you're probably wondering, what is Gymkhana? Well, Gymkhana is basically an event that take place in a large abandoned area (usually a car park or an airfield) that has loads of obstacles for the driver to drift around. It's not that common, but through YouTube, Ken Block has made it famous again, with more than 10 Million hits on his Gymkhana videos. I don't think anyone can really challenge Ken Block.
And so, here is my favourite Ken Block Gymkhana video.
I just want to say in advance that I don't own this clip in any way. No copyright infringement intended.
And with that out of the way, please enjoy. If you like this clip, feel free to check out Ken Block's other Gymkhana videos.
