Coffee lovers like would not even think twice about investing in coffee mugs like this “Keep Cup” which is reasonably priced at $19. While I would easily go for the Turquoise and Black cup, you have the option to go for the Royal Purple and White cup. Both Keep Cup colors are available in both 12 and 16 ounces.
If you are a Starbucks lover, or of any other brewed coffee for that matter, then check out how many disposable cups you have bought in the past months and you will see how your love for coffee is costing the environment. By getting the Keep Cup, you can now go on with your coffee love affair minus the guilt.
One of the best ways to help protect Mother Nature is to reuse our resources and this includes our coffee mugs. This stylish Keep Cup will make sure you do just that. For one, it is a replication of the traditional takeaway coffee cups and comes with a practical lidded commuter cup that will keep you safe from spills even if you drink your coffee wile mobile. It also easily fits under the various espresso machines so it is practical to use even when you buy coffee from the commercial shops.
The Keep Cup is non toxic and free from BPA and more importantly, can keep your beverages piping hot for up to 30 minutes longer compared to the regular disposable cups. They are also lightweight, splashproof, safe for use in the dishwasher and the microwave. And guess what? Your Keep Cup will most likely fit in your car or bicycle’s cup and bottle holders.
Can you believe that 20 percent of office waste is not from post-it notes but disposable cups? Such a glaring mishandling of the environment and our love for coffees, don’t you think so?
Price: $16 or $19 (12oz and 16oz sizes)
The rise in hypertension cases the world over due to the inactive and deskbound lifestyle people are living is something to worry about. Think of how long you have been sitting down in front of your computer today while surfing the net and you will start to get the picture of how sedentary your life has become. Or how about the many hours you spend in front of the television? That is another cause for worry that could get your blood pressure up in an instant!
But why worry when you can manage your blood pressure and your well-being? It is time to take charge of your health by getting the Withings Blood Pressure Monitor and connecting this with your Apple device. By doing this, you can constantly keep tab of your blood pressure level, and your health.
The Withings Blood Pressure Monitor works the same way as the other blood pressure monitors although I must admit it looks smarter and more attractive. Just wrap this around your arm, attach it to your Apple device which could either be an iPad, iPhone or iPod, and it will do the job for you easily.
You do not need to be a health professional to be able to operate this blood pressure monitor because there are onscreen instructions you can just follow. After inflating the cuff, your systolic, diastolic blood pressure and even your pulse rate will be automatically displayed by the app. More importantly, all your readings will be saved so you will be able to monitor your blood pressure on a daily or weekly period. The iPhone blood pressure app will even make it easier for you to spot trends in your blood pressure by plotting the results which you can then upload to Google Health.
While this Withings Glood Pressure Monitor is easy to use even for the layman, it is not a diagnostic device so do consult your doctor first if you are pregnant or you have heart or blood pressure problems.
The $188 tag price without the iPhone is not bad at all considering you are investing on your health.
I have always hated cleaning the toilet, so when I stumbled on Kohler’s latest offering called the Numi toilet; I knew instantly that it is worth saving for in the future. The Numi Toilet by Kohler clearly gives us a sneak peek to what a toilet may look and function like in the future.

In addition, this toilet also has an integrated bidet for your personal comfort and hygiene. The bidet self-cleaning feature adjusts according to the owners’ preferences. And the bidet hand wand also includes a dryer feature, a nice extra touch.
Everyone has to deal with the fact of life that bathroom odor after use is inevitable. But with the Kohler Numi Toilet you can extinguish the bad odors right away with the deodorizer feature. The charcoal deodorizing filter pulls the odor right out of the air. However, I have to say the most amazing thing about the toilet is a combination of the heated seat, feet warming feature, illuminated panels and built-in speaker to play your favorite music. And to help keep track of things there’s a touchscreen monitor as an added bonus.
