Hazel Chua Website

Hazel graduated with a BS degree in Chemical Engineering, although she secretly wanted to major in journalism. Thank God she never stopped writing because as luck and a whole lot of work would have it, a couple of tech blogs took her on, more came a-knocking, and now she's got the best of both worlds: crunching numbers throughout the day while writing about all sorts of crazy gear at night.

Whisker Dam Keeps Your Stache Dry While You Booze Up

So you’re sipping your favorite whiskey, minding your business…and suddenly you feel a small drizzle on your lips, care of your now-incredibly-wet mustache. That’s seriously uncool. There’s no such thing as an umbrella for your facial fuzz, but there is such a thing called the Whisker Dam.

It keeps your stache dry as you sip your poison of choice. It attaches easily to the top of most pint glasses and is handmade from copper that’s coated with a non-toxic barrier, so you’re covered on that end.

‘Bang!’ Goes Your iPhone: Smartphone Gun Case

You should probably get a different case if you don’t want to attract attention to yourself or if you’re traveling. These phone cases basically let you load up your phone in a huge plastic gun. Clearly, they’re fake, but inspectors might question why you’ve chosen that case out of all the cases on the market and you might find yourself detained…

Clearly, nobody wants that to happen. But if you want to take the risk, it’s yours for about 13 bucks.

Oliver Sweeney Brogue: Johnny’s Got You Covered

These are the only dressy shoes you’ll ever need to own. Granted, your momma may not approve, but everyone else probably will.The Johnnie Walker Oliver Sweeney Brogue features a classy design, with a calf leather upper and a Blake stitched construction. It has the iconic JW striding man tattooed on the heel as well, but its most distinct feature is the not-so-discrete compartment on each heel. These compartments are just the right size to fit a Johnnie Walker Red Label miniature inside each shoe.

Now they’ve thought of everything!

Sip and Smoke: Coffee Mug Pipe

Two things you need to jumpstart your day: a cup of Joe and a quick smoke. And you’ll be able to do both with the Pipe Mug. It’s essentially a mug with an embedded pipe at the base. Fill it with your drink of choice and light it up so you can take a couple of puffs in between. It’s the perfect combo, so it’s a wonder why someone didn’t think of it sooner.

Get one for yourself, one for you dad, a couple for your friends–they’re that awesome.
