..Equipment for Life.. since 2005.. Welcome to Equipian, our previews, views and reviews! enjoy!

ONEness ..

Saturday, June 25, 2005
Each Aveda Oneness Aroma Diffuser was uniquely hand made, with the sandy surface simple design, it serves as a decor for our home. It is very simple to use, apply 10 drops of aroma diffuser oil to the center, and then add water until 1/3 of it's height. It is much safer than candles, especially for homes with children and pets. Also, the electric radiator maintains constant temperature, providing sustainable aroma diffusion. The thing i like most is that, the center is specially made to be smooth but look sandy, it is very easy to clean. Now, i'm going to set up my personal space, with the diffuser on .. sitting there .. thinking of nothing at all ....... [equipchic]

Felidae Fedora

Wednesday, June 22, 2005

Puma's newest hat borders on classy and clown. what do you think about it? mixed wool and polyester, but looks pretty stylish. the top pattern is actually made of many overlapping Puma's, and an embroidered cat will make sure people know what you are wearing. the brim is stiff and can be shaped into the classic fedora silhouette. and for 27USD, it's not a bargain, but not too pricey either. what do you think? let's take a vote, cool? or fool?

Portable Brew

For those addicted to caffeine, Sunrise Moonrise's Brewmug makes the perfect companion. it's a portable 16oz. coffee drip, perfect for the great outdoors. The dripper is kept inside the thermos until it's ready to be used, in which case you remove the drip and reattach it above, add the ground coffee beans and hot water, wait, drip drip drip (into the insulated mug), done! it's easy to use, and instant quality java that's not an instant mix. sad how people are addicted to coffee though, but if you like camping (or driving off cliffs) this seems like the simplest solution, for 15USD nothing too fancy but it will do the job (kind of like this website).

Ever forget your keys after changing your handbag? i did .. after 1 1/2 hour travel, i noticed that my locker key was not there, and i just can't work that day because all the materials are in my locker. i think this is what i need: Very Intelligent Pocket.

there are 9 pockets in this bag allows you to carry all the essentials 'safely' while changing bags quickly .. it comes with 4 colors and it's washable in soapy water. [equipchic]

Hair Treatment ..

My hair looked so dull, and the coarse feeling was really unbearable. Recently, i tried the following products and i think they work.
John Masters Organics Citrus and Neroli Detangler:
The ingredients are all natural and the scent of lemon is just fine. What i like it most is that, it can be used as a leave-in conditioner which leaves hair shiny and manageable. Also, the minimal styling effect is suitable for everyday use.

Biogenol Ultra Deep Masque Deep Conditioner:
The result after applying it for 10 mins at home is as the same as having a salon intensive treatment. I tried other brands before, e.g. Origins, Aveda, but the effects are not long lasting. I think once per month treatment with Biogenol at home is already adequate. Thanks for your recommendation, equipbug! [equipchic]

Fusion of Greatness

Monday, June 20, 2005
it's kind of cheesy to call a technology "fusion of greatness", but when it's great, it's great. the fusion is taking Cannondale's CAAD8 frame and adding Six13 tech together. the CAAD8 oversized tubes, lightweight forged dropouts, aero hourglass seat stays and the carbon top and down tubes from Six13. the result is a lightweight and stiff frame with the addition of carbon tubes. if you've got the money for this type of bike, it's one of the best you can buy.

Aloha Hilo

Sunday, June 19, 2005

Hilo Hatties call themselves the Store of Hawaii, and for a good reason too. they make authentic Aloha Shirts straight from Hilo, which is on the Big Island of Hawaii. most tourists know Oahu (Honolulu) or Maui, but have very little chance of seeing the mysterious island of Hawaii with the great Kilauea volcano. Back to Hilo Hattie and the aloha shirts. Aloha shirts are so versatile and can be quite comfortable especially in the scorching summer days. it's a poor man's suit and a rich man's shirt, that's the great thing about them, it suits anyone. i can wear it out to the club for dinners, to the beach, to parties, to work (maybe), and just for hanging about in my house. the patterns come in such a huge variety, but the classics are general fauna and surf. i think the fresh colorful and flowery patterns give summer a touch of freshness, and this is what i got my dad for fathers' day!

cuff linked


Lately, i've been getting shirts that use cuff links and find them quite nice. i like the longer cuff and the french collars. when it comes to cuff links though, it's not in the price but whether you can match it to your shirt. i have a pair of really basic silver Dunhill Cuffs which are in the shape of buttons. (125 USD) but i also go to the other end of the spectrum with the banana republic knotted cuffs or the Brooks Brothers silk knots as well. in fact, i find the knots very convenient and easy to match with shirts. they come in all sorts of colors, and when you wear a white shirt you can go with a white or black link to blend in. but it can bring out the color of your tie or belt as well, and contrasting colors can make your cuff link stand out. i recommend the silk knots for around 4-6 USDs a pair.
