All the buzz about Meghan and Harry's royal baby
The world will probably never get tired of obsessing over the Royal Family and the arrival of Meghan and Harry's new bundle of joy proved just that. Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is the first member of the Royal Family to be half-American and half-British, already changing traditions much like his parents' union. But that's not all. A lot of people also quickly noted the 'unroyalness' of the baby's name.
Of course, the internet made a lot of speculations that Archie was a reference to the Archie Comics Series, with the main character resembling Harry being a ginger. Even Star Wars star Mark Hamill joked about the choice of Harrison (in reference to his co-star Harrison Ford), saying that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could've named their child after his character, Luke, instead. The Royal Family has made no statements over the naming process, but by the looks of the snaps, even the Queen approves so who are we to judge?
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2.0, anyone?
The CT Hot Lips collection was made to bridge beauty and philanthropy. This is by creating lipsticks in collaboration with the industry's biggest names and donating part of the profit to women-support organisations. Three years later, Charlotte Tilbury's going at it again with the arrival of Hot Lips 2.0. What's great about this release is aside from introducing more shade choices for us beauty lovers, the charity pledge also doubled with almost USD1.3 million.
Huawei P30 and P30 Pro gets a new camera feature
Huawei P30 and P30 Pro already earned the favours of many with their stellar DSLR-like camera features. And following the recent introduction of the EMUI 9.1 operating system into the phone's software, we learn that the phone's photography and videography capabilities got another upgrade: the dual-view camera mode.
This latest feature allows users to create split-screen videos by simultaneously using the phone’s primary camera and zoom lens in one go. Yes, no editing involved whatsoever. It also allows zooming in or out of desired objects via the split screen, as well as shooting in panorama and closeup at the same time. If you're still having second thoughts about giving this phone a spin, this might just be the sign you're looking for to finally take that plunge.
