I like to think I’m a pretty chilled person, it takes a lot to ruffle my feathers but there are three things that will immediately send me into an instant melt down, traffic jams, when the computer/phone/app freeze or crashes for no reason and when I lose my stuff, sadly the last happens way too often as I never pay attention to where I put my stuff down. The Tile is a stylish little…well…tile that can be attached to you bag, purse, keys or whatever to help you find them when you brain turns against you and refused to remember.

I have an ancient car with an old fashioned, manual, key in the hole locking system - which is all well and good in the daytime - but attempted access at night has resulted in scratches all around the lock as i jab at it blindly in the dark, time for a torch. Now, I could have settled for a £2.99 jobby off eBay that would cast a faint glow for a few months before falling apart, but if you are going to do something you might as well do it right.
In the UK we have a thing called the ‘Duke of Edinburgh Award’, which was a programme set up by Prince Phillip to get lazy teenagers out in the world completing various tasks to get a badge and brag about it on your University application or CV.

If I lost or damaged my phone 15 years ago, the biggest inconvenience would be gathering up all my lost contacts off my mates and shelling out for a new Motorola Razr. These days, as much as I hate to admit it, my phone is my life, like an external brain.

With the summer upon us there is no excuse not to peel your backside of the sofa, switch off the games console and step out into the sun. God it’s bright out there, but the hair loss from lack of vitamin D just isn’t worth it! Don’t forget to smother your pasty skin in sun cream if it’s the first time you have been out this year.
With so many power-banks on the market now it’s easy to forget that not everything runs off a built-in rechargeable, like the ones we have in our phones and tablets.
