ULINX: Magnetic Attraction

ULINX Jewelry, a store based in Los Angeles, California, sent me this awesome accessory a week ago. It’s made up of only magnetized links (or “linx”)—which means you won’t see any strings or glues in between links/beads, making it seamless and modifiable.

ULINX provides the customer 4 collections of predesigned spheres/squares, called CLIX, to choose from. And everything else is up to the customer. To create your jewelry, you will have to choose from the styles on their website app:

And then choose your CLIX design from the collections. In my case, I chose the peace symbols. I didn’t want to mix and match designs so I came up with this. You can, however, create your own combination.

What I really love about this jewelry is that you can actually create many accessories from one bracelet. One ULINX bracelet is made up of 26 to 32 beads. It is quite big for my wrist, so I use the spare ones as earrings and ring! Isn’t that awesome?

The magnets are strong enough to prevent everything from falling off. However, like other magnets, it should not be placed in direct contact with pacemakers and unshielded devices that use magnetic storage, such as ATM cards, credit cards, etc. Per the website, “Under normal use, small magnets should not affect computers, hard drives, cameras, MP3 players, LCD screens or watches.” Children under 14 years of age are advised not to use the jewelry; the jewelry is not a toy. Other than those precautions, ULINX is a very fun accessory. 🙂

Junkie

Hello everyone! It’s February and I’m celebrating it with a blog post. I love this month because people seem happier and more in love during this time of the year. I was a little bit sad during last year’s February because my boyfriend was in another continent, but I’m feeling great this time around because he’s here in the country. I’m quite excited for our Valentine activities, although I know it won’t be much different from our daily activities since we always have fun every time we’re together.

That has always been our mindset since we started dating. We’re no ordinary couple—he lives in the States while I stay in the Philippines. When you’re not always together 365 days a year, you tend to make the most out of every second you have together. We never argue; we respect each other’s opinions. We do misunderstand each other sometimes, but we come to a resolution right away. We communicate and talk a lot and I think that what makes our relationship special, aside from our common interests.

And speaking of common interests, we tried a new roll of film today–Kodak Pro Image. As you know, we’ve been using film in my posts. We tried Solid Gold ISO 200 and recently Kodak Gold. I love both of films but without the right light, photos can look muddy and murky sometimes. Kodak Pro Image, however, is a stunner. Colors are more alive; the sun was setting when we took these photos using Chad’s Canon AE-1 film camera but photos looked like they were taken while the sun was high. You’ll definitely see a lot of Kodak Pro Image film in this blog. So if you’re an analog junkie like us, visit my blog and Chad‘s often. 😛
