BenQ ScreenBar: The Perfect Computer Lamp

What are the qualities of a perfect desk lamp? My ideal workstation lamp should not take up so much space, not bulky, light temperature can be adjusted and a bonus if it can be powered via the USB. I found all these qualities in a ScreenBar LED Monitor Light by BenQ. We have been truly gushing over the items that BenQ have sent our way to try. This ScreenBar Light coveted the top 1 spot of our favorite things for our workstation Simple & Clever! The ScreenBar design is sleek with a black matte finish, it does not have a base or mechanical arm that would require space on your work desk which is perfect if you have limited space. The lamp rests on top of your monitor just like a webcam, it is reminiscent to those lights above a painting in art galleries. It is also USB powered so you are not bothered with additional plug.  Quality LED for Eye Care What impressed my boys (husband & the eldest) is that the lamp provide …

BenQ GS2 : Movie on the go

We’ve had the GS2 on loan for our family to use for a few weeks now and it has given us a movie experience similar to a cinema setting at the comforts of our home. My kids have used it to watch age appropriate movies in the bedroom while we adults got uninterrupted movie time on our own. The GS2 will be a perfect companion when out and about, we definitely can’t wait to use it when its winter season here in UAE. Two reasons why BenQ GS2 is great for families: Made for OUTDOORS GS2 is splash and drop resistant which makes it a good choice for camping or any outdoor movie bonding. If only we’ve known about this nifty projector during camping season, our teens would have not been busy fiddling their mobile phones when it was too dark to wander around. Parents can entertain kids with 3 hours long worth of CocoMelon and Peppa Pig when its fully charged;  That is more than enough to prepare a camp site and prepare food. WiFi enabled which means, you can …

Stay-at-home Mom

SAHM (stay-at-home mama) is a label attached to my name since we moved in the UAE, that’s more than 10 years now. The choice to be one was mine.  Being one was certainly not a part of my 10yr plan back then. I’ve always imagined myself a career woman. When Coy left for work overseas, my Mama said ‘Go where your husband is if circumstances permit it’ and so I did.  Ohh how I blamed her that first year away living the life of an expat SAHM. Why? I was tired with domestic life – infinite dishes to wash, endless laundry to attend too and a house that always needed cleaning. Add to that even after a days work, the effort was left unnoticed! SAHM label often left me feel exhausted, lonely, angry, and worthless. I completely lost who I really is/was.  I, myself no longer know me. If you find yourself in that similar situation know that you are not alone and what you are feeling right now is VALID. *** In a world …
