Lord knows being a sassy independent lady isn’t easy, but thanks to the internet things are starting to look up. Check out these 7 weird and wonderful products that allow you to work it solo like never before.
1. A functional, yet fashionable wine glass necklace.
Having someone to hold my wine while I attack a tray of canapés is easily one of the top 5 reasons why I end up in a relationship. This might not be the case for everyone, but for those of you out there who feel me, this wine glass holder necklace has got you covered. Not only does the design ooze class and sophistication, you don’t have to worry about leaving your drink unattended ever again.
2. A tasteful pillow to rest your head on.
Before you chime in with comments about how this product gives off a pining spinster kind of vibe, I get you. But if you think about it, one of the top benefits of having a partner in your life is being able to use them as furniture. Maybe the fake torso design is a bit much; there are plenty of other (more sensible) pillows out there. However, if you have a sense of humour about yourself, and want to enjoy cuddling without having to worry about your other half moving their arm every 15 minutes because they ‘can’t feel their fingers’ – this is the obvious solution.
3. A good vibes only alarm clock.
Ladies, we are living the dream. The ‘Wake Up Vibe’ alarm clock speaks to me for a number of reasons.
1. Combine this product with the arm pillow and you can enjoy all the benefits of having a man in your bed, without having to deal with the harsh, and somewhat odorous reality of actually having a man in your bed
2. I feel like this is the one alarm you would never get sick of
3. It combines business and pleasure in the most ingenious manner
4. It’s completely ridiculous
4. A desk that lets you Girl Boss from home like never before.
After waking up to some sweet vibrations, you probably won’t be keen on leaving your bed. Thankfully, that’s no longer a problem due to this amazing desk. If you do decide to have someone accompany you to bed, may I suggest saying ‘step into my office’ followed by a wink? I don’t know about you, but I’m buying it just for that one liner. Side note: check out this massaging bed rest, for extra comfort.
5. An all terrain heaving lifting machine.
A few years back my friends and I made the fatal mistake of breaking up with all of our boyfriends before moving house. As good as it felt to be strong, independent women embarking on single life together, what felt distinctly less good was lugging furniture up flights of stairs with the combined upper body strength of a six-week-old baby. Did we give up and call for help? No. Do we wish we had this stair-climbing cart? Yes.
6. A hair clip taken straight out of a spy novel.
It’s time to get all Charlie’s Angels up in here, because as Beyonce pointed out in the year 2000 – those ladies are independent badasses. This hairclip might look like it’s channelling 90s back to school fashion, but don’t be fooled, this clip gets things done. Need a screwdriver on the go? NO BIG DEAL, GOT ONE IN MY HAIR. Need to cut some rope? ALLOW ME TO UNCLIP MY FRINGE AND SLICE THAT ROPE LIKE BUTTER ON A HOT DAY.
7. A robot crafted by drunk angels.
It’s safe to say I have left the best until last. That’s right, a robotic bartender. I could count the amount of times a boyfriend has made me a cocktail on one finger (and guess which finger I’d choose). Luckily, as an independent woman of the future I have two solutions available, make the cocktail myself (ugh), or get this robot cocktail maker to mix drinks for me. Seriously, the future is now. All you have to do is sit on the sofa, select what drink you want from your smartphone app, and voila – technology does the rest. Is it wrong to fall in love with a robot?
That’s it. That’s all I’ve got. Any must have products that I’ve missed? Let us know on Facebook!
