Geko PanicSafe

With both my partner and I learning to drive later in life, we are familiar with that horrible feeling of seeing someone you adore drive off…after stalling twice and putting window wipers on…and the shear panic of wondering whether they will make it to their destination in one piece. I only wish I had the Geko PanicSafe then. This clever little device is a combination of GPS tracking, a built-in G-sensor and Bluetooth technology that helps you keep in contact with loved ones by instantly alerting you when they or their car is in need.

Fizzics Waytap

In this hot weather, it is difficult to beat a nice cold beer with friends, but if you are anything like my group of mates this often results in a discussion/argument over the best way to serve a beer. Most people will agree that a beer poured from the tap in a pub is the ultimate in taste and condition; the downside to this is having to pay the ever-increasing prices and sharing your relaxing time with a bunch of alcoholic locals that immediately make you reconsider ever putting a beer to your lips again.

Drift Innovation Compass

The Drift Innovation Compass is essentially a wearable camera (not what you would guess from the name). It was designed with the idea that it will allow you to capture every moment without having to stop and, you know, appreciate it (welcome to modern life). The camera is reasonably compact at 43 x 43 x 13.8mm and weighs just 34g. It features 8MP and records in 1080p, has 50-6400 ISO, a CMOS sensor and comes with 2GB built-in storage, but is also compatible with Micro SD cards up to 32GB and comes with 10GB free cloud storage.

ADX Pulse V4

The Pulse V4 features Bluetooth V4.0 (hence the name). It comes with aptX and NFC pairing with a range of 20 meters, and you can also use the included braided AUX cable for another connection option. The V4 features 25 core Kevlar drivers and a 7.4 Volt 3000mah battery that will give you up to 20 hours’ playtime per charge (with a four-six hour full charge time).

Maui Jim Breezeway Sunglasses

We have lucked out with our summer this year - in between the usual rain and blustery winds we have had some wonderfully sunny days. Unfortunately, this has resulted in my partner’s usual dodgy sunglasses tan line along the right side of his face. Normally I would see the funny side of this, but with our wedding fast approaching I struggled to find it amusing. So, imagine my relief when the Maui Jim Breezeway Sunglasses turned up in the office with its super thin, anti-stupid-thick-tan-line frame.

Lux Bidet Neo320

When I was little we went on a summer holiday to France. I remember being amazed that the bathroom had what my dad joked was a foot bath. I believed this for two days, until I told my mum I was going to take a foot bath and she had to tell me that it was, in fact, a bidet. Since then, whenever I have the opportunity to use one, I will - I mean, if you get your hands dirty, you wouldn’t just rub them on tissue, would you?

Hylete Icon 6 in 1 Bag

Even though I try my hardest to avoid female stereotypes, I have still managed to end up with a large collection of bags. However, unlike the stereotype, only two of them are hand bags, whilst the rest are backpacks and travel bags in various sizes and strap positions. The Hylete Iron aims to be all of your bags in one, with six distinct conversions: backpack, extended backpack, small duffle, large duffle, removable daypack, and messenger bag.

Foreo Espada

You may associate acne as a problem with teenage skin but adult acne can crop up at any time (normally just before your best friend’s wedding or a job interview)! It can be caused by stress, diet medications, your skin care/beauty routine, a hormonal imbalance or simply genetics. The Foreo Espada aims to fight acne by using the dual power of laser-focused blue LED light and T-Sonic pulsations to target and reduce the appearance of blemishes.
