Chesters Tennis Flops: I’m Walking On Tennis Balls

Chesters Tennis Flops

You can walk on sunshine, and you can do it while walking on tennis balls, too. Well, not on actual balls per se, but with Chesters Tennis Flops, your soles will be resting on the same felt material that the balls are made of. In case you’re worried about the slippers getting dirty from the rain and from the typical wear and tear that flip flops are normally subjected to, don’t. They’re covered with a non-toxic protective silicone-based coating which makes them resistant to water, sweat, and dust.

Chesters Tennis Flops are available for $27.

Time To Chill: Rough Day Wine Glass

Rough Day Wine Glass

There’s nothing like unwinding with a glass of wine at the end of a long day. But how much wine is just right or just enough for whatever stress you’re trying to relieve? Although not accurate for everyone, the ‘Rough Day Wine Glass’ provides a good-enough estimate. Have half a glass for a day that was just like any other, pour more into your glass if you had a particularly rough day, or fill it up to the brim if you just want to forget it all.

The quirky wine glass is sold in pairs and is available online for $24.

Slap ‘Em and Wear ‘Em: Slap Band Sunglasses

Slap Band Sunglasses

Remember those slap bands of the nineties? They’re making a comeback– well, sort of — with the Slap Band Sunglasses. As the name implies, it’s unique because it has slap bands that serve as the temples of the frame. Aside from the novelty and nostalgic factor, having slap bands attached to your shades actually makes carrying them around more convenient. In fact, you won’t have to carry them around because you can just wear it.

The Slap Band Sunglasses are available for £19.99 (~about $31.)

I Do: Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring

Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring

 

Would you say yes to this? This Doctor Who-inspired TARDIS engagement ring will make most girls happy (provided the right man is asking), but it’ll make Whovians over the moon with joy because it’s, well, a TARDIS ring. The double band is generously studded with diamonds, while the miniature TARDIS itself is covered in blue sapphires and even more diamonds.

The design, which was originally posted on Etsy, has since been sold, but fret not. You should be able to ask your jeweller to come up with an inspired design, if you want one.

Cup Of Wine On The Beach? Unthinkable Until You Get ‘The Beach Glass’

this-beach-glasses-float-in-the-water-and-can-stand-up-on-the-sand-0

All roads lead to Rome, and it’s true that you can choose to get drunk any way you want; in the end you’re just as drunk. But there’s a certain appearance of class that comes with drinking wine out of a wine glass. Good luck projecting that “sophisticated” image while on the beach tough, unless of course you get yourself a Beach Glass. It’s all “Wine cup up top, and bloody spike at the bottom” so that all you have to do to keep your drink upright is to stab it in the sand. It’s a simple design, and with summer in full swing we suspect it’ll be popular with the beach bums among you. Of course, if it works in the sand, it’ll work in other surfaces like snow, grass, dirt, or anything that can get stabbed. It’s $10.50 for one.

Boomerang Wok Helps You Keep Your Food From Flying Around

boomerang-wok-16942

It’s entirely possible that you stopped yourself from ever making any recipes that required sautéing, like many Asian dishes, because you were worried about ending up with all your food on the floor. There is a certain technique to tossing your stuff around in a hot pan, and we can’t entirely blame you for being afraid. But look at the Boomerang Wok! Doesn’t it make you want to give it another shot? The special cupped edge lets you turn food with a simple push of the pan, making sure that whatever gets tossed in the air always lands back inside. The Teflon-coated surface is non-stick, and the whole thing can go in the over at temperatures up to 320F. It’s a little on the expensive side however, at $133. At that price, we might be tempted to make an effort at actually learning how to stir-fry properly.

Brick Lamp Doesn’t Have An On/Off Switch

brick-lamp-9

The Brick Lamp is an intriguing looking lamp with a minimalist design whose main “feature” appears to be the absence of a power switch. Instead, you turn the bright LED light on by placing it on its side, and turn it off by placing it face down. Integrated batteries provide up to 5 hours of use on a charge, while a charging cable lets you run the lights indefinitely. It’s great as a desk lamp, night light, or any other type of light that has to be directed at an angle down onto a surface, or straight up at the ceiling. One version is “made from a special mix of cement and fine grain sands. It is cast in a high quality rubber mold to create a super fine and smooth finish”, while the other is made from “an authentic single piece of wood lumber, coated with an all natural eco-friendly clear stain to give it an elegant finish.” They’re meant to look good, while providing a modicum of function, and you can get the concrete version for a $120 pledge, while the wood version will set you back $145.
