Review: Crumpler House of Horror Laptop Bag

I remember when we went for a 5-day vacation to Northern Luzon back in 2010, I was supposed to bring my laptop with me. However, because I wasn’t comfy enough with my backpack at that time, I left my laptop at home. It was blessing in disguise ’cause I got to completely enjoy the trip, but I’m not sure I can afford to do that with my current job. I prefer backpacks to bring valuables because I feel more secure with them, so Crumpler’s House of Horror laptop bag is just perfect.

In case you’re wondering who’s in the photos in this review, that’s my nanay – my ever supportive mom. 😀 I asked her to be my ‘model’ and she gleefully accepted the task. After I was done post-processing the photos, I realized that this House of Horror laptop bag looked good on her. So, it’s suited for anyone, really. 🙂

First thing we noticed is, as expected from Crumpler, how comfortable it is to wear this bag on your back. The 38-mm soft webbing straps are easily adjustable to even out the weight distribution on your shoulders.

The front of the bag has a quick access zippered pocket for the less valuable things you bring. Crumpler House of Horror is meant for up to 15-inch laptops. The laptop sleeve is well-cushioned to ensure your device is safe. The whole bag is also made of water-resistant materials, even the zippers!

It has a total of 5 storage zones / compartments. The inside of the bag has pockets for your smaller devices like smartphones, digital camers or even chargers.

Unboxing: Glamourbox for February 2013

As you might already know, this is my second month with Glamourbox. I posted a quick review of the contents of the January 2013 Glamourbox and I’ll be doing this every month to let you in on what’s inside their monthly box. For the Glamourbox February 2013, if you’d think there are makeup items included in the box, you’ll be disappointed.

Unboxing Glamourbox February 2013 - the contents

That’s exactly how I felt when I saw the contents of this month’s Glamourbox. I guess I had high expectations, so when I quickly went through the contents of their February box, my excitement turned to letdown.

As I carefully checked each item, I kept on reminding myself that the point of my subscription to their beauty box is to try out products I won’t normally buy or be interested in. Considering the amount of products in this box that I won’t actually be using, I wasn’t happy.

HOWEVER, let me just say this: your reaction towards the contents of this month’s box may be completely different from mine. Why? Because we differ in needs and preferences. I just don’t find many of the items this month personally useful.

This month’s theme is Romantic Beauty:

I was looking forward to the February box because I really thought the romantic theme of the month will mean we’ll receive at least one makeup item. *sigh* Anyway, without further ado, check out what’s inside this month’s box, starting off with those that I didn’t like:

Urbanears Tanto Giveaway!

I have done a review of Urbanears Tanto before and I will say this again – if you’re looking for a more mobile pair of headphones, something with a minimalistic design, but still gives you decent sound you must have while listening to your favorite beats, the Urbanears Tanto is just right for you.

Aside from its ball-joint construction with a pivoting ball that makes wearing this ergonomic, it has a microphone with a button that you can use as remote control for your device too.
