By Amazon, Music & Radio, ReviewsNo Comments

Former frontman of the Scissor Sisters, Jake Shears recently released his 2nd album Last Man Dancing. His first album was self-titled.

Last Man Dancing is essentially a classic dance album. Each track is an epic foray of music that must be danced to.

The track listing is as follows:

  1. Too Much Music
  2. Do the Television
  3. Voices (feat. Kylie Minogue)
  4. I Used To Be In Love
  5. Really Big Deal
  6. Last Man Dancing
  7. 8 Ball (feat. Le Chev)
  8. Devil Came Down Dancing
  9. Mess of Me
  10. Doses (feat. Big Freedia)
  11. Radio Eyes
  12. Diamonds Don’t Burn

My favourite track is Last Man Dancing. You can buy the album on Amazon here.

Tech Review: MSI Modern 15 Laptop

By Amazon, Reviews, Shopping, TechnologyNo Comments

MSI are traditionally known for making high performing gaming desktop and laptop computers. But it seems that they have now branched out into middle of the range productivity laptops, like the Modern 15, which is available to buy on Amazon.

The Modern 15 laptop was recommended to me by a friend as it has a pretty decent specification for the price, including: 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD. It also has a Backlit Keyboard keyboard and 15 inch screen, both which are must haves for me.

I’ve been using this laptop for a couple of months now and there’s just a few disappointments. The first major disappointment is the sound – the laptop is so quiet, even on maximum volume. This makes watching things or listening to music on the laptop practically impossible. The other disappointment is a minor irratation and that is the plastic of the body is very prone to showing up finger marks.

Overall it is a good laptop, but it could have been a great laptop if MSI had have sorted out the quietness of the internal speakers. I probably wouldn’t buy it again, purely because of this.

Book Review: Neal’s Yard Remedies Essential Oils by Susan Curtis

By Amazon, Books & Authors, Nature, Reviews2 Comments

Essential Oils by Susan Curtis is an essential book to own if you’re serious about aromatherapy.

This durable hardback has 256 glossy pages of full colour with plenty of photos. It has an A-Z of essential oils, for each oil covering:

  • An introduction
  • What it is good for?
  • Best Uses
  • Methods of use (i.e. bath oil, massage oil, compress, skin care, etc.)
  • The Plant
  • The Essential Oil (how the essential oil is made)
  • A photo of the plant or herb

Then the book goes on to sections on: Base Oils, Essential Oil Recipes and Healing Remedies.

The Essential Oil Recipes includes a really useful table of common conditions and which oils are good to work with around these conditions.

This book is backed by Neal’s Yard whom are famous for their shops selling essential oils.

The only thing that was missing out of the book for me was spiritual/magical uses of essential oils. But other than that I would (and have to all of my friends) highly recommend this book.

Essential Oils by Susan Curtis is available to buy on Amazon and at all good bookshops.
