With an increasing sedentary lifestyle, we realize that we spend majority of our days sitting. In fact, Mayo Clinic now calls “Sitting the new Smoking.”

To help us all keep moving, we built a product that brings movement to you. Cubii is the first Bluetooth-equipped seated elliptical that lets you keep moving while sitting – at your desk in the office or your couch at home. Bluetooth allows syncing with our mobile app, Fitbit, and Apple HealthKit to track your progress and compete with others in leagues. The idea was to not add another task in our busy days and figure out a way to beat the “sitting disease” while not changing anything about our furniture, routine, work, or family time.
The product launched a few years back via a Kickstarter campaign and it caught fire. We’re exhilarated about this growing awareness about and movement towards active sitting and welcome you to be part of this mission to make our lives healthier, one stride at a time.

Product Information

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint Essential Oil

(Mentha piperita)

Peppermint essential oil provides a familiar, recognisable scent, but Peppermint is so much more than just a nostalgic, fresh aroma. This oil can be diffused to create a stimulating, focused atmosphere for daily tasks. You can also apply it topically to create a cool, tingling sensation on the skin, which can be very soothing after hard physical activity. We recommend using Peppermint essential oil aromatically or topically anytime you want to add a pleasant variety to your routine!

Lemon Essential Oil

With its bright and joyful aroma, Lemon essential oil benefits skin and hair as much as its aroma enhances your environment. This best-selling oil can be used in a variety of ways: Mix it with your cleaning products, use it during your night-time skin care routine, or add a drop to your conditioner for a great scent. This oil is a key ingredient in many hair and skin care products, Thieves® cleaning products, and essential oil blends such as Thieves®, Citrus Fresh™, Clarity™, Joy™ and Harmony™. Because citrus oil can cause photosensitivity, avoid applying Lemon to exposed skin before spending time outside.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. It’s this dynamic aroma that has made the plant a classic for perfumes, soaps, fresheners, and beauty products. As one of our most popular products, Lavender is a great beginner oil and a must for every home. Lavender essential oil isn’t just a favourite because of its classic scent—it’s also highly versatile. From skin care products to relaxing routines, this oil can infuse and enhance many areas of your life.

Tale of Bodie – The recycled gilet

Everyone needs to understand how outstanding Bodie is, in terms of performance, quality and how much of a low impact it has on the environment.

No birds died to insulate Bodie – just plastic bottles.

The insulation is made from 75% recycled content. And the outer fabric 45% recycled poly.

Bodie has been made to have minimal impact on the planet, and the entire garment can be recycled once it comes to its end of life.

Retail price – £89 / Unisex
Brand new for AW19 available in green and navy colour-ways over at howies.co.uk

Screen Shot 2019-11-04 at 12.21.33.png Screen Shot 2019-11-04 at 14.04.51.png Screen Shot 2019-11-04 at 14.05.50.png

Approved by Oeko-tex – the dyes contain no harmful substances such as nickel and formaldehyde etc.

Boasting a 650 – 800 fill power, meaning Bodie has a super high warmth for such a low bulk. Fill power is a measure of the loft or ‘fluffiness’ of a down product that is loosely related to the insulating value of the down.

Green Fibre ‘Dope dyed’ the poly meaning that the fibres have no harmful substances when dyed, using less water in the colouring process and having a significantly lower carbon footprint.

Bodie is also Interlink certified – Intertek Group plc is a British multinational assurance, inspection, product testing and certification company headquartered in London, United Kingdom.

Bodie also carries the Global recycled Standard (The recycled fabric certification) – The GRS is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions.

Hunter Barnes is one of the foremost documentary photographers working in America today. He is known for his extraordinary ability to document aspects of culture and communities ignored by the mainstream and often misrepresented in the modern American narrative.

Spirit of the Southern Speedways sees Barnes turn his singular attention to the world of NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing). Invited to go on the road with Chip Ganassi Racing over a period of four months, Barnes was given extraordinary access to NASCAR culture. In order to capture the heart of the sport he fully immersed himself into the racing community; the drivers, teams and the crowds. Spending time in the parking lot with fans for a week before each race to fully experience the spirit of NASCAR, he met and photographed the die-hard fans and many of the sport’s most influential figures, while exploring its origins– moonshiners who built cars to outrun the revenuers.

Barnes was struck by the immense sense of community at the gatherings and the feeling of occasion and passion. Families camping out, grandparents with their grandchildren, couples who had followed NASCAR for decades and who truly embrace the spirit of the sport. It was this world, the people, the life he saw beyond the track, that Hunter was compelled to capture for the first time. Barnes also reveals the intimate relationship and connection between the fans and the drivers.

Featuring over 60 images shot in 2017 at some of the sport’s biggest tracks in Daytona Florida, Bristol Tennessee, Darlington South Carolina, Charlotte North Carolina, North Wilksboro North Carolina and Talladega Alabama, Barnes’s subjects include ‘The King’ Richard Petty, the iconic Junior Johnson (who has won 50 races as a driver and 139 as an owner), Jack Roush, owner of Roush Fenway Racing team, and famed driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

Published November 19 by Reel Art Press, this 128-page hardback is a unique photographic essay of racing culture and offers an insider’s look at NASCAR by one of the notable documentary photographers working in America today.

HUNTER BARNES IS AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEW

Hunter Barnes In his early twenties, Hunter Barnes (b. 1977) self-published his first book, Redneck Roundup, documenting the dying communities of the Old West. Other projects followed: four years spent with the Nez Perce tribe; months with a serpent handling congregation in the Appalachian Mountains; bikers, lowriders, and street gangs; inmates in California State Prison. Intense, true pockets and sub-cultures of America. Hunter shoots exclusively on film–the pace of analogue in harmony with his approach. Fundamental to Hunter’s work is the journey, the people, the place. Then committing them to film before they are greatly changed or gone forever. Spirit of the Southern Speedways is Hunter’s 5th book published by Reel Art Press.

Reel Art Press R|A|P stands for exceptional style and a unique curatorial eye. It stands for luxury and class, the highest production values, and a sensitivity to an eclectic selection of subject matter and material. It stands for rare, unpublished and unusual work including subjects with mass appeal and limited editions with unlimited potential. The company has made headlines around the world with its previous releases, which include: Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music, Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin, Burt Glinn: The Beat Scene, Sory Sanlé: Volta Photo and Billy Name: The Silver Age.

Travelzoo launches experience-focused Christmas Gift Guide designed to create real memories and reduce landfill waste

Guide designed around new research revealing gifting preferences of Brits
A third of Brits would prefer to gift an experience
Brits want to reduce waste and be more eco-conscious during festive period

Anyone already fretting over what gift to buy this Christmas can turn to Travelzoo’s just-launched Gift Guide, which includes many gifting ideas, from lavish afternoon teas and spa treatments to craft beer subscriptions, helicopter rides and more. With new deals being added every day until Christmas, Travelzoo, the global publisher of exclusive offers and experiences for members, is giving people the chance to give an experience and create a memory. The full Gift Guide can be found here.

Experiences win over waste

Travelzoo’s Gift Guide has been created in response to the deal provider’s own research. In a survey of 2,508 people from across the UK, a third of respondents said they would prefer to give or receive an experience rather than a physical object. Almost half (49%) of respondents said they had considered reducing the number of physical gifts they buy at Christmas, with 46% of those surveyed attributing this to concerns about the amount of waste these products create.

Banishing the blues

The survey shows that receiving experiences as gifts could have a positive effect on mental wellbeing. When asked if they thought that an experience as a gift would reduce post-Christmas blues, over 40% of respondents agreed. Women are more likely to believe experiences can prevent the post-Christmas blues with 48% of women citing this versus 33% of men.

Sustainable Santa!

Our nation has become more sensitive to waste over the festive period, with 56% of respondents saying that they will be making more of an effort to be sustainable around Christmas time. In a bid to be more eco-conscious, 28% of survey respondents are not sending Christmas cards this year, with 17% saying they will opt for an e-card instead. Again, it is women who have stronger opinions on this, with 63% of those surveyed saying they would try to be more sustainable during the festive period this year.
