THE CAR 

The JX is Infiniti’s first seven-seat crossover, and it’s already a sales hit. It’s a virtual stand-in for the less plushly outfitted Nissan Pathfinder, at least in size and mission. And it’s uniquely styled to draw attention to its new presence in the lineup. Powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 and a CVT, the front-drive JX can be fitted with all-wheel drive. Infiniti put the priority on luxurious seating, predictable handling and great safety scores. Straight-line performance is adequate, and handling is confident, if not sporting, the JX is a combination of CVT and V-6 which makes for quick Interstate cruising.

THE DRESS 

The LDA Spring/Summer collection takes inspiration from butterflies, an ideology, Lanre Da Silva Ajayi, owner of the eponymous label have adopted for the last two seasons. For this collection, LDA has specially designed Butterfly prints in various textures of silk fabrics.

THE GADGET 

Iphone 5s or Iphone 6. Rumors have been spreading all throughout the web that Apple will be releasing a new Iphone for 2013. Although the exact model is yet to be announced, photos and features of the new Iphone product garnered quite a big number of spectators. The upcoming Iphone model is said to be thinner and yes, the jokes are apparently true, it’s going to be larger. It’s going to be about 6 inches and it could have a 4.8 Inch Retina + IGZO made by Sharp which will make it brighter and clearer than the previously released Iphones. With the basic features enlisted, we can say that Apple is definitely competing with the larger smartphones that are in trend

THE WHISKY 

The bottle of Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve was sold at auction in New York for $94,000 ($89,600). It is the most expensive bottle ever sold at auction. The 1955 tipple is the third of 11 to be released to the public. The first sold at Bonhams in Edinburgh in December for a record-breaking £46,850, topping the previous world record of just under £30,000 for a bottle of single malt.

The second was bought by an anonymous bidder at the Honourable Artillery Company in London for £44,000. The 11 bottles of the whisky are being released to honour Janet Sheed Roberts, the granddaughter of William Grant, who founded the Glenfiddich distillery 125 years ago.
