Five things we’re totally into this month.
Groov-e Solar Bank
Dying smartphone batteries are a killer. When 3% becomes a trigger for you, it’s probably time to invest in a portable battery charge. Groov-e has created this rather nifty solar-powered charger meaning you only ever really need the sun to start charging your dead device. Never be caught out again.
Amazon | £20.99
Banana Tank Top
You’ll go bananas for these new vest shirts from Tiger Stores. Guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face be it out clubbing or relaxing at home when you light that first autumnal fire. Just don’t get too hot in it or you’ll have to ‘peel’ it off!
Tiger Stores | £10.00
Marilyn Love or Money
When an icon makes a comeback it can sometimes fall completely at, but Marilyn’s musical return, with the aid of Boy George, is a sultry lush track which showcases how wonderful Marilyn’s voice is sounding right now. (Plus he gets very naked in the music video!) It may not be a top 40 commercial radio hit, radio can be terribly ageist (just ask Madonna) but it’s definitely worth adding to your collection and your playlist.
Amazon | From 99p
Half Hitch Gin
Distilled in the heart of London, this is a Gin that’s been reborn in the historic Camden Lock. Black tea, bergamot, wood, hay and pepper make for interestingly sharp and crisp botanicals in what could be a new favourite for the everyday shelf.
Amazon | £39.95 – 70cl
Polar A360 Fitness Tracker
This lovely bit of kit ts securely onto the wrist with a double pin clasp. Once you’ve filled in a few details online about your age, height and amount of exercise you actually do, it’ll then sync with this colour touchscreen watch to monitor not only your fitness goals that day but also calories burnt, how you slept and your current heartbeat, which may go up a little when passing other joggers in the park. Looks great and if your exercise for the day is not something you want to look at, well then it also tells you the time!
