Some (extremely strange) people will hear their alarm go off in the morning, wake up instantly and spring out of bed. Normal people like me will have a minimum of three alarms on their phone, all set up to snooze multiple times before they finally drag themselves out of the warm clutches of their bed. Worse still, some morning I not only sleep through my alarms, but somehow manage turn them off in a semi-conscious state. It’s like my bed and my brain are in cahoots to make mornings as difficult as possible.

BEEM Air Joy Hot & Cool Bladeless Fan

There’s nothing quite like the smell of an electric fan or heater - the burning smell of collected dust being blown at you whilst you try to work at your desk, then switching to an equally musty smelling fan in the summer time. The BEEM Air Joy takes the hassle out of regulating your room temperature by merging both heater and fan into one device without the use of grates or blades that collect dust over time.

Ladies and gentlemen of a nervous disposition, please turn away now. We are about to tackle a taboo that affects half the world’s population and in some countries, keeps girls from attending school every single month. Yes, we are talking about when Aunt Flo comes to visit, when the painters are in or when you are suffering from girl flu; whatever you like to call it and no matter how much society pretends they don’t exist, periods are very real and at times a massive pain in the neck (and lower abdominal area).

Lumie Zest

Since 1991, Lumie have been researching and producing lights to tackle the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (or S.A.D.) The Zest can be used as a wake-up light for a more natural start to the day, and it can also be used as a light therapy device to give you a boost in the winter months or if you are stuck indoors. Your body is hardwired to wake up to the gradual rise of the sun, but due to our busy modern lives this very rarely goes hand in hand with when you need to get up.
