In my shopping adventures I come across some really inspired products by clever inventors. I can’t help but be motivated to share.
I was recently asked, “What makes a Game Changer?” and my response was, “Those who see a gap or need in the market and solve it”. So let’s review some truly helpful products to make life easier and address a need.
As a woman who has celebrated her 35th birthday well over 10 times, although my brain still thinks I am 25, my body is showing a little wear and tear. Yes, it is ‘evolving’ shall we say.
Evolving? Yep, it is growing older and I admit in some areas I need a little more support than I used to. I need reading glasses these days, and to be honest, even putting on makeup can be tricky if you are wearing glasses!
Well, the clever people at Ozko Eyewear have recognised our need and developed makeup glasses available in a variety of strengths. They have one lens that can switch sides so you can makeup one eye freely whilst having perfect vision. They are available at all good chemists. Genius!
Good lighting makes the difference when checking makeup or even checking teeth for that dodgy bit of lingering spinach. Imagine my delight when I found a compact mirror with LED lighting. A must for any handbag but that is not all. It is also a power bank for your mobile. Oh yes, I am often nervous about how quickly those bars on my mobile count down toward the scary red alert. So now your compact with 1x & 2x magnification is also provides LED light and a power bank. Did I mention how much I love technology and clever thoughtful inventors?
Homedics LED Mirror & Power Bank for Beauty on the Go with mobile phone charger. Available from the Good Guys, online on eBay and the shaver shop.
Shockproof, shapely and with a social conscience
Whilst mentioning mobiles, I do have to chat about one of THE most comfortable iPhone cases I have used. I am the queen of dropping my phone. This case made by CRADL is designed brilliantly to ruggedise your phone. Unlike most covers, it allows swiping side to side with full movement whilst protecting the corners and ends of the device. The raised ends ensure the screen does not make contact when face down.
I have a white cover which, given how much punishment my phones get, I thought would end up filthy in no time. Not so, the cover is nonporous so a gentle wipe and it is good as new. CRADL cases have other bright, fun and sporty colours for the more adventurous.
Cradl is also a company with a social conscience and donates a percentage of their profits to charity.
The shapes framing the back of the device like an exoskeleton make handling the device so comfortable. The shapes allow better grip to balance the phone in one hand whilst taking pics and typing a text.
No wonder they named it Cradl. Form and function at its best!
Hot in bed?
I am lucky to have been pretty healthy throughout my life (touch wood) however, several of my friends and family have battled cancer. During the fight, patients often find they have terrible night sweats. The team at Eaden have a remarkable range of sleepwear and leisurewear made from a luxurious Dri-release fabric that helps anyone who “sleeps hot”. Yes that also means those going through menopause or who are feverish. Through a recent bout of the office virus I was happy to be in these PJs. The PJs and nighties are stunning quality and they wash beautifully. The fabric is a clever blend of natural and man-made fibre that leeches moisture away from the body in a wicking fashion to ensure comfort.
I am not just talking fashion when I say cool. If you have the need to take food with you for the kids, perhaps expressed milk, or even a bottle of wine to an event this is the bag for you.
Cool clutches are a great idea for those who need to have cool or warm items on the run. This range of fun, fashion, insulated handbags come in a range of gorgeous designs and shapes to accommodate your needs.
On a hot day, I love the idea of keeping my expensive lipsticks as cool as my fruit salad and yoghurt, or perhaps my bottle of champagne.
Affordable, practical fashion for a song!
