My boss was reluctant to give me this piece as they knew it would trigger a rant about gendered products they didn’t want to sit through so close to lunch time, from man-sized tissues to “good girl” dog treats it is a pet peeve of mine, so I will keep it brief, when I’m shaving I do not need the product to be pink/purple (I could let the rose gold slide) with a lipstick logo and cutesy name to remind me that I am female; the media, society and my recent cervical screening has got that covered.
Firstly, I found the Senz Automatic to work exactly as I thought it would, with the one button opening mechanism working perfectly, with no problems at all. Despite mine working perfectly, there are a few reviews I had seen stating that sometimes when the umbrella is opened it would turn inside out, regardless of wind. So I decided to put that to the test, and opened and closed it many, many times, and not once did it turn inside out.
There are different types of motorbike helmets such as full-face, open-face and modular. A modular helmet is a combination of the first two and allows the front chin bar to flip up exposing your face and therefore making it easier to chat to your mates or pay for petrol from jobsworth garage attendants.
Since some smart person decided we shouldn’t have to worry about getting up off our backsides to control our heating, smart controls have been arriving on the market with a range of features and abilities.

The RoWrite combines the practical features of a digital notepad with the familiarity of writing with a ballpoint pen on real paper; it works by clipping a single sheet of paper on top of the RoWrite sensor, you can then us
When you stumble into the kitchen first thing in the morning desperate for a shot of the black stuff to kick start your brain the last thing you want is to the ear-splitting mechanical scream of a coffee grinder rattling through your skull. The Coffee Grinder from ROK is a blissfully quiet manual grinder, a much more ear-friendly way to start the day. It is incredibly easy to set up and use; simply attach the handle and place the cup underneath, add your beans and turn the handle clockwise to grind.
For me, one of the least motivating things in the gym is the sound of some attention-seeking meathead grunting through every rep like they are trying to give Nadal a run for his money; the best antidote to this annoyance is to plug into your favourite tunes and drown out the world around you. The Optoma NU Force BE Sport 4 have been specifically designed for use within the gym, the Bluetooth headphones remove any annoying dangling wires shackling you to your phone and come with a sweat- and water-resistant IPX5 rating.
I have been riding motorcycles for decades and for the last 4 years I have ridden in an air vest which is a wearable airbag system for motorcyclists that inflates in case of an accident to protect important body areas.
