Blood Puddle Pillow

If your idea of a good time is tricking people into thinking you've been shot, these blood puddle pillows are perfect for you. Inspired by those suspenseful moments when a sleeping loved one is a little too still for a little too long, they are an irreverent combination of comfort and fear.

This pillow is designed to gently wake you by exposing your eyes to a glowing cloud of illumination, gradually increasing in brightness over a 40 minute period. You can see time on the pillow’s surface too.


Alt-Ctrl-Del Pillows

Reboot your livingroom with this three-pillow set, that look as if they’ve jumped right off your keyboard. Made from Eco-Felt –100% recycled plastic bottles–, they are as soft as durable.


iSleep Laptop Pillow

Developed by Ivonne Dippmann, the i-Sleep pillow works in unison with your laptop and could transpire to be an indispensable travel gadget for those needing a little shut-eye whilst jet-setting to their next business appointment. Billed as being ‘an analog laptop extension’, it's described as functioning in much the same way as an aircraft’s lifejacket, using the hot air expelled by your laptop (whilst your laptop’s in standby mode) to inflate and become a very warm pillow.


Emoticon Pillows

How are you feeling? Choose one of the Ridibundus smiley set of pillows to communicate it. They come in six styles: :-) , :-D , :-| , :-/, :-( , and, our favourite, :-P , with a tongue that actually sticks out.

For those who cry easily reading soppy novels or who are unhappily weeping over a breakup, this Kleenex-dispensing pillow will provide the ultimate convenience in sniffle-stifling. No more groping for that tissue box that probably fell off the bedside table anyway. Alternatively, the ThenCry pillow could be useful during the coming flu season when you’re already sick in bed and can barely rise to get that tissue box.


Fresh Salmon Pillow

70cm long, the Fresh Salmon Pillow is so fresh it’s still sealed. The best thing about it, as the manufacturer states, it “does not smell of salmon.” Shame.

Nail art

Fashion No Comments »

Nail art has become an international phenomenon and many are using their fingernails as a canvas to display creativity and personality. Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest are overflowing with people showing off their latest and at times, impossibly intricate designs. The important question is where did it all begin and how has the colour of your fingernails become just as, if not more important than the outfit you are wearing?

The history of nail polish and nail art dates back to 3000BC in China, India and Egypt. Plants were processed to create a dye that was used as a type of nail enamel, this was then applied and represented social class and wealth; deep colours such as red were worn by the rich and lighter paler colours were used by the poor. The Inca civilization even went as far as painting intricate animals on their nails to demonstrate which tribe they belonged to!

It wasn’t until the early 19th century that nail enamel was modernised into the nail polish that we see and know of today. The boom of the automobile industry introduced a wide selection of paints and colours which were soon adapted to be used on nails. The classic “moon manicure” was created and Revlon changed the colour recipe promoting pigments instead of dyes which further escalated the nail polish industry’s success.

It was only a matter of time before nail polish became a statement of personality and creativity. Rock, punk and goth groups wore black nail polish and the colour of your nails communicated the subculture you belonged to. Today, nail art is fully integrated into the fashion world, the application of gems, airbrushing, fine detail and nail extensions means that they can complete any look.

I personally love changing the colour and pattern of my nails to finish off my outfit and rather than seeing it as a chore I enjoy creating new designs. There is plenty of inspiration on the internet and with the latest introduction of metallic nail wraps everyone can get a professional finish in half the time! 

The ‘wellies’ trend

Fashion No Comments »

Recently in the United Kingdom a new fad has been growing ever more popular – ‘the Wellington boot’. We also use the names ‘welly boot’ and ‘wellies’ for short. These are a sort of waterproof boot first used by the aristocracy in the 19th century for hunting and for wearing outside. They were originally made of leather and now are made of natural rubber, or plastic. In short, they are very British, we especially need them as it rains a lot!

When I was younger welly boots were used for splashing in the mud, being on farms and running around outside and through puddles. They were also used by fisherman to be able to go deeper into the water without getting wet. They weren’t overly fashionable, and were certainly not a highly desired fashion item. Due to some sort of phenomenon, recently they have become extremely fashionable and you can even see people wearing them to do their shopping or just hanging out with their friends. You can buy all sorts of patterns: dots, stripes, flowers, multi-coloured. The options are as limitless.

Designers such as Cath Kidtson, Havaianas, Dr Martens and other shoe companies have all started producing their own ‘Wellies’. An original welly boot company, ‘Hunters’, which was originally known for farming boots have started producing interesting and colourful boots of their own. They also sometimes have fur lined insides to keep your feet warm and are very good for fighting your way through the snow.  

It seems that other countries do not understand this fashion trend. For example, I am living in France and they think that it is very strange and are not interested at all in wearing them! Personally, I never wear them to university, the shops or to meet my friends. I wear them very rarely when it is raining a lot. I do have to admit, though, that it is a very practical trend! At least something that is in fashion will help to keep us warm and comfortable. What do you think? Does this kind of fashion item interest you and would you wear it for everyday activities?
