Fashion and Style Police Reviews Blue Raspberry Microphone

I started a YouTube channel last month and I have been thinking of getting a microphone to improve the sound of my videos. I put off recording videos for some weeks now because I wasn’t happy with the quality of the sound of my videos. So you can imagine how excited I was when I got the opportunity to review this Blue Raspberry Microphone. For those who have never heard of this Blue Raspberry Microphone, it is the ultimate mobile USB microphone for iPhones, iPads, MAC Laptops and PCs.

I have tried and tested this Blue Raspberry Microphone for myself and I think it is the smartest gadget I have tried this year. It is great for recording voice overs, videos, podcasts and music. The inbuilt microphone on my MacBook Pro is not that great. So recording videos on it can be a bit of a pain. But thanks to this amazing microphone, I wouldn’t have to ever use the inbuilt microphone again.

 

Raspberry is the ultimate mobile condenser microphone for voice and instruments. Informed by Blue’s illustrious studio heritage, Raspberry delivers dramatic, 24-bit studio-quality sound directly to your PC, Mac, iPhone or iPad. Raspberry’s new, patent-pending Internal Acoustic Diffuser (IAD) design resembles treatments found in studios and concert halls, focusing your voice or instrument while minimizing the sound of the room. Like a portable vocal studio in the palm of your hand, Raspberry gives you professional results—everywhere you go.

 

Here are some of the amazing PROS of this gorgeous microphone.

 

PROS
  1. I love the design. It is quite a beauty with the touch of red.
  2. Setting up the microphone was easy. I just followed the steps in the manual and I was good to go within minutes.
  3. It can be used on various devices – iPhones, iPads and Laptops.
  4. The quality of the sound is so good.
  5. It is quite portable and very easy to carry around. The microphone comes with a soft-suede carrying pouch which is really handy.
  6. I like the stand it comes with. It makes my recording a lot easier. It also comes with a 1/4” thread mount which enables me connect to tripods.

10 Things You Can Do To Create a More Fulfilling Life

We all want to live a fulfilling life, and in this sense, having a life that is harmonious and stable is of imperative importance.  See, we all enjoy the fireworks of life, such as the fun nights out, romantic holidays and the like. But these are often short bursts of happiness that don’t mean as much if you’re not operating from a stable base of having a harmonious life.

In psychology, there’s something known as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs which expands on this principle. It states a hierarchy of emotional, physical and practical needs that must be met in order to feel fulfilled in life.

Whilst this can be an interesting model to look into, this article offers a lighter insight into practical things you can do create a more fulfilling life.

 

  1. HOME

Having a solid sense of home is imperative to a more fulfilling life.  If you think about what home is, it’s ultimately a feeling of security, safety and belonging that makes you “feel at home”.  It’s not necessarily living in the fanciest house with most opulent fixtures and fittings or magazine worthy interior design.  

Home is a “safe place” that should be somewhere you feel peaceful, comfortable and grounded.  In this sense, keeping on top of your home is pretty important as it’s hard to feel at peace when your home is untidy or cluttered.

The saying “tidy house tidy mind” rings true with most people. Many find it much easier to feel good about life when they are living in a clutter free environment.  If you’ve ever been in a situation where the washing up is piling up on the counter, then whilst it isn’t a big deal, in the real world – the emotional impact of this can be disproportionately high and affect other areas of life.

 

  1. FINANCE

Whilst it’s not necessary to be rich in order to live a fulfilling life, it is important you have an income that is under your control.  In addition, being in control of your financial situation – even if you’re in debt – is paramount to feeling fulfilled in life.

See, a lot of times financial situations can feel like a snowball rolling down a mountain side, getting more and more out of control. And when this happens, we tend to bury our head in the sand as we can’t cope with the increasing stress of the situation.  

That said, one of the most important things we can do to feel good about ourselves and live a more fulfilling life is to keep on top of our finances. And the essential ingredient to this is a feeling of being in control. Both in terms of of the income you bring in and in terms of the management of your financial situation.

 

  1. EDUCATION

There are many ways to learn, and education isn’t limited to an academic course at a university.  The key to a more fulfilling life is a feeling of progress. That could be studying an electrical engineering degree or learning how to make a particular backdrop for your fashion vlog. Learning is learning, and the more we feel we are making progress, the better we feel about ourselves and the more fulfilling our life becomes.

 

  1. HEALTH & WELLBEING

Many people consider health and wellbeing to be at the foundation of a fulfilling life. Yet so often we find ourselves taking our state of health for granted until it’s diminished. And it’s only at that point we tend to appreciate what we had all along.

Therefore, in addition to taking care of your health you also want to take the time to appreciate the gift of health that most people take for granted.

 

  1. PERSONAL APPEARANCE

The better you feel about yourself, the more fulfilling your life will become. And whilst there are daily maintenance tasks such as brushing our teeth that we all should be engaging in, there are little treats such as facials we should have once in a while to keep on top of our appearance, particularly as our skincare changes with ageing.

Then, in addition to your physical appearance, the clothes you wear convey who you are on the inside. So being comfortable and confident with your own unique sense of style is important. As the more you feel like you are expressing who you truly are, the more fulfilled you will feel within yourself.

  1.  YOU TIME

If you’re depleted and exhausted then life is not going to feel fulfilling. Moreover, you enter a vicious cycle where you end up being grumpy and irritable with the people you love. So taking time out for yourself is vitally important. Whether this is a regular exercise class, indulging in a particularly hobby, or simply having a candle lit bath with your favourite box set playing on your laptop.

Similarly, in addition to “you time”, if you’re in a relationship then you’ll want to make some “together time” too. As often the fun, laughter and intimacy can evaporate from a relationship if it is not tended to. Like a fire, it needs fuel in order to keep alight.

 

  1. MINDSET & EMOTIONS

Fulfilment has a tendency to work from the outside in. Which means no matter how good your circumstances are on the outside, if on the inside, you feel lousy then you will not be fulfilled.

Mastering your mindset in this sense, is critical to fulfilment, as the thoughts you think create the feelings that you experience, which ultimately create your life experience. So be sure to shift your focus on the positive, spend time appreciating rather than complaining, and be gentle with yourself.

 

 

  1. LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF

The majority of people, today, when you scrape beneath the surface seem to be suffering from a lack of self-esteem or self-worth. In this sense, more self-acceptance is the remedy which means loving yourself the way you are. And not setting up rules such as “I will feel good about myself when X happens…”

There’s a tendency to look to the outside world to fill an inner void, which almost always fails to work. For instance, we feel unappreciated and lonely, therefore, we indulge in a shopping trip to take the edge of these feelings.

Now, we’re all guilty of distracting ourselves from time to time, but distraction can become unhealthy, if it leads to a dissociation from how we truly feel inside.  The best way to feel better is to acknowledge the feeling exists and then ask yourself a question – what needs to happen in order to feel better… then listen… it’s as simple as that.

 

  1.  STOP DOING THAT WHICH HURTS YOU

We are often stuck in a trap where we keep doing the same things but somehow expect different results.  When you think of the metaphor of having physical pain, there’s usually something that triggers this pain, aggravating it, and similarly there are things that soothe the pain too.  In a nutshell, you simply want to stop doing the things that are hurting you, and this way, you will have a more fulfilling life.

 

  1. GET RID OF NEGATIVE PEOPLE

In that vein, there are sometimes negative and depleting people in life that we hang around, either through choice (e.g. friends) or necessity (e.g. family).  If you want to have a more fulfilling life then you need to get around more positive, nourishing and encouraging people that have the capacity to support you rather than drain and deplete you.

 

In summary, creating a more fulfilling life is often about feeling in control of yourself and nourishing yourself from the inside out. It is about making progress, feeling good about your body, eating healthy food, and taking the time you need to relax.   

 

How do you create a more fulfilling life?

Clean Energy Drinks for Busy Mums

As a busy working mum of 2 very active toddlers, I am forever tired. Some days, I wake feeling tired. My kids are early birds, so my day usually starts from around 5:30am on a proper early day (thank you heat wave). Or it can be as late but never later than 7:45am. And the chaos start from wake up time to bed time for 7pm (ish). I work from home, so I have to balance the family life and work life from the same roof, and make it all work somehow. Which is tiring on most days. Which is why I find myself taking anything that promises to give me some kind of energy.

I have recently come across a new drink – Flyte Clean Energy, and I was eager to try it. A pack landed on my doorstep some days ago, and I have been busy drinking. These energy drinks are not like your regular energy drinks. These are clean energy drinks, which means it is 100% sourced from nature. It has low calories and powered by organic caffeine. I got the Clean Mango and Red Berry flavours and I think they taste great! The bottles are so cute. I think they are really pretty and handy. The fact that I can open a bottle and finish it later thanks to the lid is great.

Flyte Clean Energy Green Mango

This energy drink is tasty. I love it when it’s chilled. It has a dry taste and it is great for those mornings when you need a little pick me up. It works like a dream! I love the colour a lot too.

 

Flyte Clean Energy Red Berries

This energy drink has a lovely taste. I like the light subtle berry flavour. It is a great drink to have in the afternoon as an alternative to your regular cup of coffee. It saves the day when you are feeling drained.
