Feels Like You’re Lounging on Grass: Taer Grass Field Hammock

Taer Grass Field Hammock

Remember the days when you used to lie on a bed of grass, staring at the sky with not a care in the world? Large patches of unoccupied grass might be harder to come across these days, especially if you tend to get lazy with the gardening. You could go to the park, but then you’d have to share your little patch of heaven with the rest of the world.

So here’s an alternative: the Taer Grass field hammock. It’s covered in a ynthetic polyamide material that mimics the color and feel of actual grass. Of course, nothing’s quite like the original, but this is probably the next best thing to actual grass. The hammock is water and UV resistant and you can hang it indoors or outdoors, depending on your preferences and available space.

The Taer Grass hammock retails for €365 (about $500).

‘Stressed’ Tea Bags Transform and ‘Relax’ in Hot Water

Transforming Tea Bags

Different strokes for different folks. That’s true in so many ways, and especially true in how people deal with stress and cope with stressful life events. Some people go out for a run, others shop, some sleep, while others fix a cup of tea and find themselves relaxing more and more with every sip.

For the latter group, ad agency M&C Saatchi’s campaign for tea maker BOH makes complete sense. They rolled out an array of tea bags in unusual shapes and designs. The coolest part is when the bags are submerged in hot water, as they transform from a symbol that depicts stress to one that exudes calmness and nothing but good vibes.

CaffeinAll’s Got All the Caffeine You Need

Caffeinall

 

 

Need a dose of caffeine without the bitterness? Most energy drinks have an aftertaste that makes some people nauseous, and if you’re not a fan of coffee, then you’re left with few alternatives. What you need at this point is CaffeinAll. It’s basically powdered caffeine that you can sprinkle all over your food and into soups and drinks so you can get that extra kick while you’re in the middle of a particularly long and tiring day.

CaffeinAll is being marketed as an affordable alternative to typical sources of caffeine. Plus the fact that you can sprinkle it to almost anything means that you can “create” your very own energy food, anytime, anywhere. Each sprinkle contains about 100mg of caffeine, although three shakes is the recommended maximum daily intake so you don’t become an over-caffeinated mess.

CaffeinAll is up for funding on Indiegogo, where a pledge of $15 will get you a bottle that can give you up to 200 shakes.

Make one for yourself, a pair so you can share with a friend, or half a dozen to spread that icy Samurai love all around. The molds are available online for $12.
