Ecosa Mattress

ecosa

Mia pee’d in my bed whilst I was gone, that’s how upset she was!!! I’ve had to buy a new mattress, really wanted a Tempur as I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about them, but I’ve got nowhere near enough funds right now to justify the cost, and even if I did have the funds for a Queen Tempur, the real mission is to own a King sized bed… but it’s all such bad timing as I’ve got a legit reason to get a new bed right now, but can’t afford the King, nor the Temper Queen lol.

I ended up doing research and pulled the trigger on a pretty interesting choice. The brand is Ecosa, and you might have seen the video where a girl has wine on the bed, a guy jumps on the bed but the wine doesn’t spill. Their web site looks way better than their video, and with free 4hr shipping from time of order, as well as a 100 night free trial I was keen to give it a go.

The guy at the door came with a pretty small box. Heavy, but the box had wheels built into it. I thought that there was no way there was a Queen sized mattress in that box! But on inspection, Queen was ticked at the top. Unboxing was quite hilarious fun! The mattress came folded up and squished flat in airtight wrap, once I pierced the film the mattress literally exploded to life, filling out crazy fast.

The new mattress gave off some pretty funky plastic smells so I let it air out in my room with windows open for a day. The mattress is a LOT shorter than my old one with pillow top. I could look into a pillow top option for this mattress in future if the height bothers me (my side tables are now too tall). The mattress feels super firm too, but I love it! It’s been 3 nights so far and I’m sleeping well and feeling good when I wake up!

Star Interview Foxy Asia Magazine – DIVINE

star.santillan-johnyjordanphotography-foxy-asia-magazine-9

I got the word DIVINE tattooed under my left boob about 2 weeks ago. My best friend @justinfoxau had it tattooed on his arm when his father passed away. I loved the analogy of it, DIVINE after all the shit that almost killed you in the past. Our friendship means a lot to me because I feel like he molded me into the person I am today. Justin’s been a huge part in my transitioning and has mentored me in graphic design, so it’s been an honor to get a matching tatt. (No matter what we do, it’s always a fucking blast, we are as reckless as each other hahaha!!)

The last few years for me were pretty rough, I was in a really unhappy place. I’ve been able to break free from the rut I was so stuck in and I wanted to get DIVINE to mark the start of my new life alone. To new adventures!!

PC Build: ZEN PC

goods
Goods are in! Massive order from MSY.

cooler
I think PC stuff is pretty ugly, from the packaging design right through to product design, but I won’t lie, this thing looks like it belongs on my car not my PC! Pretty fucking sick!

evo
EVO, Turbo… what’s going on here?!

insidee
Had no idea what I was doing, never built a PC before, but I’m not lazy when it comes to research. It’s amazing how much you can learn with a bit of light reading and watching YouTube videos.

boot
She turned on first go! No bad burning smells, all good! Pat on the back for succeeding in building my first PC. Massive thanks to Ved from Selectnine for not only putting the general list for this build together, but also lending a hand to be there during install from hardware through to software setup (he was my QA Inspector!).

testing
Testing testing 123. Man she runs super cool. 43 on idle, and up to 70 when playing The Division (ON ULTRA!!!!!).

alive
The case sits between the couch and the TV, making it possible for cables to reach the couch if need be (charging controllers, corded headsets etc).

logitech
I hid the Logitech main control unit under my Stormtrooper helmet, it’s the little things!

magnet
The NZXT case came with a cool magnetic gizmo which lets you hang your headphones, very nice.

lives
The case is pretty wild at night, maybe it needs even more LED’s!

inside

dongle
I’ve used a Belkin USB hub to hide the XBOX and Mouse/Keyboard wireless dongles in the book shelf.

wegotthis
Ahhhhh, WE DID IT!

doom
Now to finally play DOOM (thanks again for the copy Bethesda!), which came on a CD (Ved’s last PC didn’t have a drive!).

The Division on ULTRA, on my couch, with a controller. WE DID IT! The console killer, now a reality. I’m so happy with this PC Build; which all went super smooth amazingly.

No blood, sweat or tears were had. Initially I was sure Ved was going to build it for me, but you know me… once the goods came in I was ripping boxes to get my hands dirty, next minute I’d built it as far as I could go, but had a couple of cable connections I wasn’t so sure about so Ved came over to look over everything before I started up the PC for the first time.

Have to admit, I was super nervous about the PC starting up for the first time. I felt like an American Chopper, turning the key over on a motorbike build for the very first time wondering if it was going to run, or melt. Amazingly it lit up in a blaze of LED lights, and WOW! She hums along real nice!

The fans that came with the case are super quiet, the cooler fans are crazy quiet, and the shitty little fan that sits on top of the RAM is the noisiest fan of the lot, go figure! I can’t hear the PC at all where it sits though. The NZXT S340 Elite case made it super easy for me to create a minimalist clean setup. Cable management on this thin is fantastic. The only issue was the cooler was too big to sit in front of the fans, as the case has a control unit up there, luckily I figured out I could mount the fans first, then the cooler, which made for a way sexier build in the end IMHO!

We had no issues installing software, and getting my games from Steam and UPLAY onto the new machine was a breeze. My Skyrim and Fallout 4 are heavily modded though, and moving mods over didn’t quite work. It looks like I’ll have to re-install all game mods again, but that’s no biggie. Sound is super bass heavy, but that low volume rumble is exactly what I was looking for to fill out the space. TV is crazy sharp and all my concerns about using a huge TV instead of a computer screen have been put to rest, big time!
