Playing dress-up at home

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

While we may not be heading out for fun outings with friends, we can still continue to look and feel good in the latest trends even while we’re staying at home. Being in sunny Singapore, we look for clothing that are lightweight and breathable, especially as when we’re out of office (read: not in air-con for 9 hours), the material that we’re wearing is crucial to beat the heat.

Let’s hop out of our pyjamas and lounge-wear for a second, and breathe new life into our outfits. After all, what you wear can put you in a certain mindset as it affects our emotional state. Just the act of getting dressed up can lead to more productivity, optimism and a better overall mood.

Plus, this is also a great opportunity to have fun with our style, you get to try out new outfits that you might not normally wear, or feel is too dressy or showy for a day in the office. Now you’re home, no one is going to stop you for dressing like how you want!

Play dress up with Atome and buy the things you love and pay later with interest-free instalments. There’s no hidden cost or processing fees, it’s a simple checkout, made easy with your either your debit or credit cards. So what are you waiting for? Download the Atome app and start shopping today!

Get things done in this soft relax-fit dress. Made of polyester blend, known to be extremely lightweight with a silky touch, this dress is perfect for Singapore’s hot weather. We love this stunning shade of blue that will complement any skin tone.

Sunny afternoons are made for this beautiful floral printed dress with a ruffled top for some ~ princess vibes ~ We love how this dress instantly puts a smile on our face with its vibrant colours and flowy skirt perfect to spin around all day in.

Beach days seem like forever ago, but you can get a tiny slice of island vibes at home with this adorable straw bag. This cute and versatile bag has a stunning straw finish, and is sure to add on to every summer outfit. While we can’t head out yet, this bag can add to the tropical aesthetics to any room while we dream of our next beach holiday.

Make a statement in this dreamy pink jumpsuit, that can be dressed up or down. This delicate piece features intricate floral embroidery on the front, adding a romantic touch to this pretty colour. It comes with adjustable straps, with woven tassels at the end. It’s comfortable to lounge around the house all day in, while making you feel like you put in effort to get dolled up.

While you’re dolling up, don’t forget to play dress-up with your little one too! It’s fun to keep the kids entertained, and let their imagination and creativity run wild. Let them play doctor by dressing up in dad’s shirt, or use an old pillowcase to make a nurse’s apron, or a superhero cape (but let’s be real, nurses are superheroes). Playing dress-up is a fun activity and allows them to role-play and use their imagination to pass the time! Plus, it’s a great screen-free alternative.

These adorable kimonos from Haha No Yume are not only beautifully designed, but made with soft cotton fabric from Japan.

Taking care of our mental health

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

With the extended Circuit Breaker and the announcement of the reopening phases, it’s not surprising that many of us are starting to experience ‘Cabin Fever’.

The term is mostly associated with terrible weather (think snow storms) which is why most of us are not really familiar with it. Cabin fever refers to the feeling of restlessness, going ‘stir crazy’ and feeling unmotivated and hopeless.

Cabin fever is something that you can work on fortunately, and it’s not a lost cause. Keep your mind stimulated, your body active and listen to your soul. Routines are important in helping to keep cabin fever at bay, and staying in contact with loved ones and talking through challenges can help. Our tip would be to name something that you’re grateful for each day, and reframe the situation in our heads to strengthen our minds.

Take our mind off the virus and focus on creating happy moments in our life to calm our nerves. Whether it’s a book, movie, gardening, writing or even planning your next holiday, there are always things for us to look forward to in life. Browse our list of merchants on the Atome app, and get the things you love today, and pay later with Atome to split your bill into three.

Don’t be hard on yourself if you’re feeling unmotivated, instead allow yourself to identify this emotion and remind yourself that it’s okay to have good and bad days. If you’re constantly feeling that you’re unable to concentrate, seek help from a professional mental health practitioner.

Gardening has been proven to help uplift our mood. Watching your plants grow and blossom creates a sense of achievement, and it teaches us to look after and respect other living things. It forces us to look beyond ourselves and reminds us to be more mindful, which helps to alleviate stress by reminding us to live in the present moment and not focus too much on the uncertainty of the future. If you’re new to gardening, we’d recommend starting with sunflowers. These bright and cheery plants are known tor their vibrant sun-like appearance. They’re relatively easy to grow, and they’re perfect for Singapore’s sunny weather, as you guess it, they thrive in the sun.

Create a small indoor garden with this adorable moss kokebiyori that allows you to cultivate your own little mediation area. The beauty of moss creates a sense of peace and relaxation for the mind. Set aside time to appreciate the beauty of nature and concentrate on the contrasting colour of the mini garden.

It’s no secret that exercise helps to boost our mood and energy. But while we’re staying home, it’s good to stretch and do some yoga (especially if we’re sitting down the whole day). Our bodies are tense and yoga can help alleviate some tension and relieve any tightness in our body. Exercise can also burn off the extra energy that we’ve accumulated from being home all day.

Letters to My … dad, daughter, friend, grandparent, mom, sister, son, or even to myself is a great way to help us focus on the positives, even though it might seem hard to do. This makes the ideal gift as it allows us to write our feelings to someone we hold dear, in 12 letters to be opened in the future. As we spend time apart from each other, we’ve come to realise the important roles that people play in our lives. Communication over our phones are so easy (and important), and these quick communication tools are great, especially during a time like this. But there’s something magical about hand-written letters – seeing someone’s handwriting, knowing the time and effort that it takes to write a letter, and the fact that it’s tangible, you get to hold on to it for years to come and reminisce after a long time. Plus, writing letters can be really therapeutic, as you get to “talk” and communicate all the things you’re feeling.

We love this elegant, bright journal to help remind us of the things to be grateful for each day. Writing in a journal can ground us in the moment, allowing us to be introspective and mindful of our thoughts and feelings. Daily entries are small, but it allows us to connect and sort through our mental clutter, and help us identify future goals. It also provides a great tool for us to look back and reflect on the past year (even though this year is crazy). Name something you’re grateful each day, and watch your mindset shift to a more positive one. Capture the moment now, and look back on this day in 2025 and see how much you’ve grown and changed.

Life is an adventure, and the earth is filled with wonders. We will definitely travel again, so why not start planning your next big trip. With time and energy on your side, look towards the future and create a bucket list of all the places that you want to go with this re-writable map. You can cross of all the things that you’ve done, and list all the things you’re going to do and places you’re going to explore.

As we all stay home and stay safe, while it’s important to look after our physical health, we have to look after our mental health too. Keep your mind active, eat and sleep well, and don’t beat yourself up by thinking that you have to be feel/act a certain way. Everyone copes with situations differently, and while not everyone likes staying at home, we have to accept the situation to combat the virus. Reframe the scenario in our head and remind ourselves that we’re not stuck at home, but we’re safe at home.

Jazzing up your home

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

There’s nothing like spending 9 hours in your living room to sudden inspire you to decorate or begin on an ultimate Marie Kondo-ing of your house. With all the time that we’re spending at home, most of us are now feeling the urge to spice up our space, and breathe new life into the house.

For those of us who have been furniture shopping before, we know that it’s not the most wallet-friendly thing, and while we may be tempted to head online and buy cheaper alternatives, quality furniture will prove to be a sound investment over time, as they tend to be more comfortable, since they’re made from quality materials, and would not have to replaced, and if it’s maintained properly, it can last a lifetime!

For a better and smarter way to shop, use Atome to split your bill into three interest-free instalments. It’s a hassle-free and secure way of paying, and it allows you to enjoy the things you love today.

Make the space as cosy and comfortable as possible, with soft pillows, and a colour scheme that suits your personality. Take your pick on Addin’s site, they offer beautiful pieces that will match your style. This classic Hernold sofa has elegant curves, tufted button and gold-finished legs. It’s perfect for lounging around with your family and friends (when we’re allowed to) – for now, curl up with a good book or movie after a long day.

Elevate everyday meals with beautiful tableware from Table Matters. Every collection incorporates unique design that is inspired by nature, and the materials used for each dinnerware is finely sourced and strictly tested for toughness, durability and integrity. This Peranakan-themed ceramics is a grand display of culture, and exhibits a mix of bright hues and exhilarating patterns.

One of the best ways to jazz up your home to declutter, because you might find gems that you already own. If your house is messy and cluttered, it would be difficult to find what you need, when you need it. Storage boxes are a great way to keep all your possessions and maintain a clean looking space, while looking stylish and smart. Reorganise all your items into storage boxes, and tuck them away neatly into a space. Houze offers a wide range of storage boxes, plus some of them comes with wheels, so it’s easier to move them around the house.

Add a pop of colour to your room with this beautiful lattice door cabinet in Midnight Blue. This antique has two removable shelves within in it, great for storing personal items. We love antiques, and each piece always has a story to tell. It’s a great contracting piece in a room, and can add energy and personality to your home. Plus, antiques are a great investment as they retain or increase in value over time.

Anchor your living room a hint of black and elevate the space with this beautiful oval coffee table finished with a gold trim. Marble designs are endlessly classy and elegant. A coffee table is a versatile decor piece that holds together the room and can end up being the focal point of the space.

It’s always good to change your bedsheets, and changing your sheets is one of the easiest ways to jazz up your room without seemingly doing much. This set from Bedding Affairs is soft and cosy, and uses environmentally responsible materials that offers you long-lasting natural comfort. It has an exquisite silky hand feel and natural sheen, and it leaves your body feeling cool and dry, perfect for a good night’s sleep.

Our favourite internet food trends

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

Staying home has made us all lil’ chefs and bakers and honestly that’s one of the many wholesome things that have come out of Circuit Breaker. With everyone having more time kitchen, the amount of creative recipes popping up is hard to keep track. We’re no longer on the Dalgona Coffee phase (feels like forever ago), we’ve evolved to pancake cereals, and all the way to restaurant-worthy burnt cheesecakes. Of all the food trends so far, which has been your favourite so far?

Dalgona Coffee

This pretty much took over all our feeds for the first few weeks of Circuit Breaker, it was almost impossible to not see at least one of our friends posting a picture of their own dalgona coffee. It seemed pretty easy, the recipe calls for one part instant coffee, one part hot water and one part sugar, and all of our time and energy to whisky this into a creamy consistency. Once you get a whipped cream texture, pour it over a glass of milk and ice (snap a pic) and enjoy!

Three ingredient peanut butter cookie

I know, it sounds too good to be true. These cookies are without the hassle (no complex ingredients or elaborate steps, and no separating the dry and wet ingredients), just one simple bowl to mix everything in. All you need is an egg, peanut butter and sugar and about 30 minutes of your time. If you’re feeling fancy, throw in some chocolate chips, and voilá! It’s the perfect comfort food for a rainy day.

Once you’re done cooking, the presentation is equally important, because if you didn’t post it on Instagram, did it actually happen?

We love these plates from Table Matters, which is inspiring enough to spend more time in the kitchen just to use them. They have bakeware too, which makes anything look even more delicious. Table Matters collection focuses on expert quality style and function – it’s made with premium class porcelain so it can withstand heat and bake food evenly. With a wide range of designs, inspired by nature and art, you can definitely find a style that suits your taste!

Pancake cereal

One of the newest food trend to hit social media is the pancake cereal, cause basic pancakes are well… basic. It’s exactly how it sounds like, pancakes so small that you would eat them like how you eat cereal. You can jazz them up with toppings of your choice – oreos, cookie crumbs, strawberries, nuts – the world is your pancake. The recipe is really simple, just make your usual pancake batter, pour it into a squeeze bottle (or a ziplock bag with one end cut), cook and enjoy!

Elaborate dinners

Not much of an internet trend, but something that we’ve started seeing more of. People mastering their family recipes and learning how to cook nourishing meals with flavourful side dishes. Nothing really beats a home-cooked meal, especially when mum (or dad) makes it. If you’re not staying at home with your parents, you may have called them up to ask them for the recipe for your favourite dish growing up, and tried cooking it at home.

Showoff your masterpiece with Tablematters, sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face. We particularly love the Magnolia Collection which has a delicate and dainty white magnolias set against a sky-blue background.

This set is both beautiful and durable, a combination that lasts. Share an intimate meal with your loved ones and feed your tummies with warm food.

If you’re spending more time cooking and baking in the kitchen, do it in style and pay later with Atome to split your bill into three and enjoy 0% interest instalments.

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·

Practising mindfulness in life

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

We’re often so focused on the future that we tend to miss out on simple things that going on in life. And while looking ahead is never a bad thing, letting moments pass us by is less than ideal. In this ever-growing and fast paced world, it’s easy to always be on your next thing – especially when there’s so many great options and opportunities out there. But at the same time, how often do we get to fully appreciate the moment we’re in, understand the feelings and feel all the feels that we’re meant to?

Sometimes when we look too much into the future, we start feeling anxious. We worry about all the things that could go wrong, even though they’re so far off into the future (and possibly won’t even happen). And while it’s normal to feel anxious about the future, it can stop you from doing things that you enjoy.

We look towards being mindful. It’s a buzz-word that has been thrown around excessively for good reason. But before we delve too much into that, let’s establish what mindfulness is.

According to Mindful.org: “Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not over reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.”

Sounds simple right? The best part is that it doesn’t require any special equipment, it’s something that we all already possess – the only thing that we need to do is learn how to practice mindfulness.

Let’s start with mindful eating. It involves eating slowing, engaging your senses by noticing the smells, flavours, textures and colour of your food – appreciating what you’re eating. Mindful eating is about giving your meal your full attention, which means no Netflix, phone games, or distractions. Play around with the presentation of your food to jazz up meal times and create more thoughtful tableware. Table Matters incorporates beautiful colours and textures to tableware, inspired by nature. The materials are carefully source and are strictly tested for toughness, durability and integrity, so you can be assured that it’ll stand the test of time.

Reinforce the principles of mindfulness in everyday life, starting with the space that we’re living in. Just Anthony is a purveyor of Chinese antique furniture and accessories. Look for a piece that speaks to you when buying furniture, and consider the impact that they’ll have on your life – whether they’re a practical item, or something that adds a positive association in your home. We love this cabinet from Just Anthony as it offers a space to display our aesthetically pleasing pieces, while safely storing other contents.

When life gets overwhelming, take a timeout and focus on yourself – understand the feelings that you’re experiencing with no judgement. Become aware of them and practising not letting it control you and your actions. Focus on the present moment, instead of the past or future, let go of tension and accept the moment and feelings for what they are.

As we live busy lives, filled with distractions, it is often hard to slow down. Giving yourself time each day to meditate and do a quick self-massage (or if you’re one of those lucky few who have someone at home give you a massage). You can start my take deep mindful breaths to fully immerse yourself in the moment, and massage your neck, legs, arms with a massage oil, bringing your focus to the area that you’re concentrating on. Identify how you feel, but don’t let that distract you, instead let that calm you.

Houze: Klear Cosmetic Table Organiser

Your home is a reflection of you and your life. It can help keep you organised and centred, especially as we’re all staying at home now. Our environment can overwhelm us, especially if it’s cluttered. Houze provides storage solutions to help create a sustainable and efficient way of living. Harmonise your home and create a conducive space of living by beautifying your living area. They have a wide range of storage options, suited for every room in the house.

Mindfulness allows us to look within ourselves, and not lose sight of the matter at hand. It allows us to reduce stress and anxiety, and helps us sharpen our senses and focus. To top it off, it boosts our health and immunity, as well as our confidence and emotional resilience.

Financial mindfulness sounds a bit like an oxymoron. But let’s start thinking about it, because I do think that we would all like to worry less about our finances. Financial mindfulness allows us to stress less about money for the future, as when we concentrate on what we need at the moment, we can decide if something makes sense to us.

When you pay with Atome, you can worry less about your finances, as Atome splits your bill into three manageable instalments, which are all interest-free. Allow yourself to indulge in the moment, without stress or anxiety.

Relaxing beauty buys to help de-stress

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

My my my, what a situation we’re in, right? It’s been over a month since Circuit Breaker began and honestly, is anyone else feeling like dousing themselves in lavender oil and calling it a year? We can’t escape the current climate and one of the best things we can do now is stay calm, it’s simple but it’s true.

What we do to stay calm differs from person to person, whether it’s a home workout, baking, meditation, taking a hot shower, curling up to a good book, or using beauty products that promises to calm and soothe you. We’re sharing our favourite products to help you relax and de-stress. Take some time for yourself and pamper yourself with some of our most relaxing beauty buys.

If your skin is starting to act out from the stress, this Anionic mask is going to help. It acts as a magnet to pull out micro-size pollutants and other impurities from your skin that built up throughout the day. It’s gentle enough on your skin to be used every day, and it contains all the good stuff to boost moisture and elasticity in the skin, while preventing wrinkles and lightening up any dark spots. Remember to turn your phone into Do Not Disturb mode before you put this on for the ultimate escape.

Up your home facial routine with a salon worthy mask – Flowwe’s Regeneration mask with BioCellulose Fiber Mask. The mask is known for its amazing skin adhesion and skin toning effect. Plus, you get to pick a Phyris Essential Ampoule to suit your skin’s needs. If your skin is feeling dry, choose the Deep Moisture ampoule to inject some hydration into your skin. Or if you’re looking for extra radiance and energy, the Beauty Boost is for you! Concerned about fine lines showing up on your skin? The Ageless Ampoule can definitely help plump your skin for a smoother appearance. If your skin is looking irritated, the Calm and Even Ampoule can help relax and reduce redness. While the Stressless Ampoule will help regenerate and tighten the contours on your face. Lastly, Matt and Fine helps to mattify the skin, and refine the appearance of pores, leaving you with a smooth and even complexion.

After a long day, one of the most relaxing things to do is to rub on some natural essential oils and call it a day. There’s an array of essentials oils dedicated to helping you relax, mentally and physically. With so many options out there in the market, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. We’ve round up three of our favourites from Natural Living Asia to help relieve stress, relax your muscles and boost your mood. Curio Elixir’s No 23 Manage My Stress Roll On is pretty self-explanatory. It contains a blend of peppermint, geranium and frankincense, which will help you relieve stress (surprise surprise!), clear your mind and improve positivity. While the No 22 Relaxing Muscles Roll On is a favourite to help relieve any pain on your muscles, joints and tendons. Made with a mix of eucalyptus, sweet orange and frankincense oil, this is perfect to help relax your muscles after a day of sitting at your WFH set up. Lastly, the No 21 Stimulating Mood Roll On is exceptionally crucial in today’s landscape. Rub it onto your temples to help lessen worries and unwind your mind, and indulge your senses in a blend of sweet orange, rosemary and geranium oil. Pro-tip is to rub them on your pulse points (wrists, temples) before you fall asleep so that you can fall into deep sleep and wake up refreshed the next morning.

Put your mind at ease during the day and slather on some sunscreen to protect your skin. Inside this tube contains an uber hydrating, vegan sunscreen that helps prevent premature ageing. It protects your skin from UVA, UVB rays and blue light (the light emitted from your laptop and phone!), as well as environmental aggravations. Highly rated and reviewed, many have touted it as the best sunscreen they’ve ever used.

Did you know that the repetitive motion of brushing your hair helps to ease muscles and calm your body? Your body adapts to a comforting routine and evokes a relaxation response. This can help calm you down and is a perfect way to unwind after a long day. We love a product that does more than it should and this hairbrush from For Beaut is definitely one. Not only does it detangle your hair, it soaks up oil grease and sweat residue with its purifying fibre bristles, while smoothening your hair. The bristles help to create a feeling of acupressure, essential for scalp care which will help keep it healthy and improve blood circulation. After all, there’s little things more relaxing than clean, silk hair.

There’s something magical about spa treatments that always transports us to a place of zen and serenity. If you’re looking for a meditative escape in the form of a spa treatment, look no further with Mirage Aesthetic’s Premium Hydra Beauty Set. The set contains collagen boosting formulas that helps to restore your skin’s natural radiance. It includes a Silk Protein Repairing Mask that leaves your skin feeling supple, clear and radiant. When used consistently, it visibly improves your skin, giving it a youthful glow. We recommend lighting a candle, and indulging

It can be difficult to make time for yourself to unwind, but we promise you won’t regret it. Boost your overall well-being and relax with these products. Your skin (and your body) will thank you for it! Plus when you pay with Atome, the bill gets split into three equal interest-free instalments, so there’s one less thing to stress about.

Sending care packages to loved ones

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

We’re all apart from loved ones, and even though technology has helped to manage the distance, it cannot replace the feeling of in-person bonding, when you’re laughing so hard and gasping for air (in the purest of ways of course). We all love knowing that someone else is thinking of us, so why not make someone’s day and let them know that you’re thinking of them?

Send them a love gift carefully picked by you – it can be something as simple as sending them a meal from the favourite restaurant/cafe, pre-batched cocktails from their favourite bar, flowers to brighten up their house, or wellness products to look after them from afar. We’ve selected our top picks below, and when you pay with Atome, you can split the bill into three interest-free monthly instalments.

YumiGifts: 99 Shades of Love

What says ‘I love you’ better than flowers? You don’t really need to have an occasion to send flowers to someone. Make someone’s day with a beautiful floral arrangement from Yumi Gifts. Think ever-lasting paper roses to symbolise that you’re always thinking of them. Shop online by gifts, flowers, and choose whether you’re like it in a box or in a bouquet. There are plenty of options, and a meaning behind each choice! So if you’re missing them, or thinking of them, let them know!

Spongellé: Honey Blossom Boxed Flower

We love these shower buffers from Spongellé! Not only do they nourish, hydrate and moisturise the skin, they also massage and exfoliate (talk about a product that does it all!). Remind your loved ones to take care of themselves and their skin during times like these. And remember to buy some for yourself too!

Flowwe: Gift Card

Life is getting a little crazy, don’t you think? Sometimes we just need to slow down and take a step back and indulge in a little TLC. Brighten their day with essential beauty and wellness products from Flowwe. There are essential oils to help relax and perk them up, enzyme drinks to boost their immune system, and even facial masks to help them wind them after a long day. With a wide range of products to choose from, why not treat them to a gift card so that they can have their pick?

Natural Living Products: Fractionated Coconut Oil

There’s lots of reasons why we love Natural Living Products. The company believes that beauty and therapeutic treatments should stem from the purest form of nature, thus they’ve gathered essentials that are good for your skin, hair, body, mind and spirit. If your friend or family is a fan of eco-friendly products (everyone should be tbh) then look no further than Natural Living Products. One of our top picks is this Fractionated Coconut Oil from Curio Elixir. The benefits of coconut oil are endless, and the fractionation process triggers the concentration of caprylic acid and capric acid, thus giving it more antioxidants. It can be used to hydrate and soothe the skin, and is a natural conditioner and moisturiser.

Do we really need a reason to send someone a gift? We don’t think so. Take care of your loved ones and add a bit of sunshine to their day with these gifts. When you pay with Atome, you only need to pay a third of the bill upfront, with the remaining amount over the next two months (with 0% interest too!).

Stay inspired while working from home

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

It’s day 32 of Circuit Breaker (right?), and if you’ve forgotten what public transportation is like during peak hours or even the simple joy of having a colleague talk about the latest celeb gossip while we try to rush out a report, we’re not here to remind you. Staying home means we’re picking up or strengthening different skills that we usually won’t have time to do so and we’re making the best of the situation the way we know how. We’ve picked up new skills, worked out more (can everyone do a handstand now??), sharpened our skills in the kitchen (lowkey expecting a pantry stuffed with banana bread when we head back to the office), and (maybe) caught up on all the shows on Netflix.

While working from home definitely has it’s benefits, it does have its drawbacks. If you’re suffering from a creative block while at home and are looking for ways to stay inspired, we’ve rounded up some creative and innovative products that can motivate you to think outside the box to create solutions.

We The People: SwitchBot – Retrofit All Devices For IoT

This innovative gadget from SwitchBot is an all-in-1 smart automated device (controlled by your smartphone) that allows you to control electronics in your house. If you’ve always wanted a smart home but didn’t know where to start – this is perfect for you. It fits all switches, so you don’t have to make any big steps to accommodate this new machine! Filling your house with great products that help makes life easier reminds you to constantly push yourself to achieve creative solutions for everyday problems.

We The People: Sleep Magic – Smart Anti-Snoring Eye Mask

Sleep is essential for so many reasons – it allows us to recover and recharge. If you’re feeling extra unmotivated and uninspired, it might be time to get some quality sleep. But if you’re a light sleeper, and are in bed next to someone who has an unfortunate snoring problem, or if you’re the one that’s snoring, we’ve got the solution for you. This sleep mask from Sleep Magic is unlike most traditional anti-soring devices. The innovative mask is able to detect snoring by using its advanced bone conduction and sound recognition technology. It has 36 different levels of carefully calculate vibrations, which it identifies according to the intensity and severity of your snoring. After picking the most suitable level, it’ll send a signal to your brain to relax your throat muscles and open up your airways. The best part is that it happens while you’re asleep, so it does not interfere with your sleep at all.

We The People: MOFT X – Invisible and Foldwaway Stand for Phone/Tablet

The MOFT X is basically an invisible foldaway stand for your phone, tablet and laptop. We know, there’s so many options out there but we honestly love this creative solution for everyday problems. The MOFT X can stand almost vertically, so you can prop your phone up while working and be in tune with any updates or calls. It can also laid down on it’s side, which is perfect for movies, or following YouTube cooking tutorials while in the kitchen. The thing that stood out was that it’s paper-thin (it’s only 5mm!!) so it’s definitely not bulky, and it can hold up to three cards (it comes with RFID protection so you can be assured that your cards are safe). If you’re clumsy, you can also use it as a phone grip.

The Techanic: MSI Optix Mag241C 24″ Monitor

If you’re missing your big screen at the office, you’re not alone. The benefits of having a large monitor are endless. It’s easier on the eyes as you no longer have to strain to see what’s on the screen, and it can also increase productivity, as some tasks are just completed faster when done on a larger screen. It never hurts to have two screens to help you during your work, where you can look up creative ideas on the large to inspire you.

Looking at innovative products can help you get those creative juices flowing. If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, pause and step away from work for a minute. It’s always helpful to spend some time reading and researching ideas outside of your own, which might trigger a brillant idea of your own.
