Get Ready to Flaunt that Toned Body

It’s the last day of August and the BER months are here! I’m one of the most excited people when the month of September comes around because it only means my birthday is coming up. My excitement this year has doubled, even though it means I’m turning 32 (argh), mainly because of our 4-day, 3-night vacation in Bohol! My brother and I have been preparing to hit the beaches of Bohol. I started with my less rice diet while he went to the gym. A couple of his gym buddies were still regulars there and it was interesting to hear about bodybuilding supplements likeΒ Hydrapharm that they’ve been taking to boost their muscle-building.

Body building

If at any time that you are interested in getting a much needed boost in your muscle gains, there are many online stores nowadays that sell supplements and formulas that aid in bodybuilding. Popular brands like Hydrapharm even have their own online stores where you can buy from them directly, which means you get good discounts and you are assured that you are getting genuine products. Since this brand is well-known for the quality of their products, you can be sure to get the maximum effects and muscle gains.

Their Hydrawhey protein supplement even have flavors that will surely make it a more interesting and tasty experience to drink them on a daily basis. Take your pick among these flavors: vanilla, banana, Belgian chocolate (my favorite!) and strawberry. The last I heard, they’re still developing more flavors.

Bodybuilding is a common practice amongst men during summer and when holidays are coming. What better way to enjoy your vacation at the best beaches here than to sport a gorgeous, toned body, right? πŸ˜‰ How about you? How do you get ready for the beach?

Preparing Early for the Holidays

It’s the first day of August and I’m experiencing that feeling again like I’m getting a fresh start. Some people may wait for New Year’s day before they come up with new resolutions to break (oh, c’mon! I know you’re guilty too!), but I have my own list EVERY month. And to be quite honest, it does help me make some much needed improvements in myself and get rid of old, negative habits.

Holiday vacation

This month though is different. If most people wait ’til the BER months to prepare or feel the holiday spirit, I am a little advanced in that department. I feel Christmas is near as early as August. It’s when I usually prepare or plan for Christmas and New Year celebrations. Each year, I try to make it as different as possible, but it’s saddening that in my family, they don’t seem to be that much interested. They feel like these holidays are overrated. πŸ™

Maybe it’s that side of me who loves to shop for gifts during these holiday seasons who wants to be all merry. I’m one of the few people who prefer to buy others gifts than to receive. I love personalized or well thought-out presents.

A holiday gift checklist

The holiday season is a great time to take advantage of a wide variety of discounts, sales and even freebies! Finding popular voucher codes online can save you a lot of money too. There are hundreds of websites out there such as Net Voucher Codes Online that provide shoppers with promo codes that we can use to purchase almost anything we want online. There are Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals around Thanksgiving, a month before Christmas, which means you can plan and buy gifts ahead of time.

I know, the weather this week might not put you in the mood, but I always focus on the bright side. I’m hoping tomorrow, the sun will shine brightly again because I’m sure we all miss her. πŸ™‚

Review: AIAIAI Tracks Headphone

Listening to music keeps me going, and so I’m pretty picky when it comes to the headphones I use. I’m big on high quality bass, so I was quite happy with these AIAIAI Tracks Headphones. In fact, my brother, who’s more particular about products like this, was extremely happy.

The brand name, first time I heard it, reminded me of a line from this OPM song by a sexy actress. I don’t want to mention any other detail, but I think most people from my country would get my drift. πŸ˜‰

AIAIAI is actually an audio design company whose main focus is to develop high quality audio products for daily use. They’re known for their modern, minimalist headphones and earphones that deliver high quality, clear and amplified sound.

I got to review their Tracks Headphone for iPods, iPhones and iPads. I found out that this headphone actually won awards for its superior audio quality, subtle design that’s mainly focused on simple lines and iconic shape.

I’ve never seen anything quite like the AIAIAI Tracks Headphones. When I unboxed it, the first thing that I noticed is how much this Blush + Plum headphone resemble a woman’s bosom. πŸ˜€

The black version of AIAIAI Tracks Headphone is love. πŸ™‚

If I only didn’t have a sensitive head, I’d definitely want this for keeps.

AIAIAI Tracks Headphones is made of stainless steel headband with adjustable ear cups

Tracks is made of light-weight, stainless steel headband that provides its users a good fit. Sadly though, having a very sensitive head made me uncomfortable when I wore the headband on me. My bro liked it though. I do agree with the fit. It might take a little getting used to, but it sure holds the ear cups firmly to place.

The ear cups glides on smoothly so you can adjust your AIAIAI Tracks Headphones

Tracks comes with 3 interchangeable colored sliders in every set. You can change it whenever, and it’ll look like you’re using different headphones. These sliders are what makes it easy to adjust and glide the earphones to position them to your liking.

Interchangeable ear cups for AIAIAI Tracks Headphones

The ear cups are detachable, perfect for those who are always on-the-go. Simply glide the sliders to remove the ear cups and store them. This might be a concern though for those who prefer putting on their headphones without having to assemble the whole thing. Oh, and by the way, the headphones come with a carrying pouch.

The angled stereo plug is 3.5mm in thickness and it’s gold-plated. It also has a 3-button in-line microphone that you can use for volume control, answering calls or player controls.

AIAIAI Tracks Headphones - unique designNow, let’s go back to the quality of sound. Its 40mm driver does give you an excellent bass. However, I noticed that it can be problematic when you’re listening to music while in a noisy environment. I barely can hear the music, so this will be perfect for listening at home or somewhere a little quiet, and not for those who use headphones to clear their head from outside noise. Still, way above average sound quality for me.

Here are the specs for AIAIAI Tracks:

  • Driver: Unit Size 40 mm
  • Plug: Angled Stereo Plug 3.5 mm
  • Speaker Impedance: 32 Ohm
  • Speaker Sensitivity: 112 +/- 3dB

I’ve reviewed a couple of headphones before, and so far, the AIAIAI Tracks Headphone is one of my top favorites. The quality of the sound, especially the bass, has definitely surpassed my expectations. πŸ™‚
