23 Jan 25 Great Amazon finds to elevate Working-From-Home routine!
Hey Hey, how’s everyone doing?
We are still here .. forever grateful for that!
It’s nearly a year since the 1st lockdown. As there is now a possibility of the 3rd lockdown being extended indefinitely, if you haven’t already invested in a comfortable work area in a dedicated section of your home, this is surely the time to do so.
Detailed below is a curated list based on recommended products from Amazon, that will help elevate your work from home (WFH) routine more comfortably. Product links are embedded in the text highlighted in bold.
1. Mug warmer
Many of us can relate to making a cup of hot drink, you get distracted by work, a phone call or life in general, only to return to your drink and find it between lukewarm and freezing cold. If you like your tea/coffee kept at the right temperature or soup kept consistently warm, this useful gadget is for you. I absolutely love the fact that there is an alternative to re-making a cup of tea, I don’t have to constantly re-warm my tea or coffee in the microwave or throw it down the sink when it gets cold.
The Amazon best seller options are the Wandefol ElectricBeverage Mug Warmer, which auto activates when you place your mug on it and shuts off when the mug is removed. You can plug it by your bedside table or side table in the living room whilst you relax with a book or watch your favourite shows. The USB chargeable option, Arpstar USB Mug Warmer you can plug it into your laptop whilst working at your desk.
2. Universal Wireless Phone charger
I can’t begin to explain how useful and convenient wireless charging pads are! I got my first one at an eye watering price of £60 when I upgraded my iphone. I now have the universal one, placed in the office and it works great! Priced between £16.99 – £19.99 ( model W1 & W3, with various option of aluminum white, silver or black), you can’t go wrong with that price. The TOZO W3 Wireless Charger an Amazon best seller, it supports all enabled wireless charging devices with receiver such as iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus, iphone 11/11 plus, iphone 12/12 plus, Samsung Galaxy Note8, S8, S8+/S8 Plus, Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, LG G4, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus and other enabled Phones and tablets.
3. Wireless Monitor & Mouse
Stop the entanglement of wired mouse with your wired keyboard, invest in a smooth transition of a wireless keyboard & mouse. Try the Logitech MK330 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo for Windows or for a splurge, there’s the Apple Wireless Magic Keyboard and Wireless Magic Mouse 2 ( Renewed)
4. Monitor stand
Neck pains, uncomfortable sitting positions for long periods of time especially now the norm is working from home. It’s important that your neck, eye, elbow ratio are on point.This VonHaus large curved tempered glass Monitor stand is a beauty and very chic.
6. Web Camera covers
If you follow me on IG @funjayjay you would have seen me demonstrate with the kids how easy it is to use the six pack webcam cover on all devices at home. In a situation where we as adults and our children spend more and more time on devices, with hackers on the rise, it’s safe to keep them away from possible prying eyes when using the devices without the need for deactivating the camera! I recommend these cam covers, they are ultra thin, cute, easy to install and they do a great job!
7. Insulated Tumbler with a straw & secure flip lid
I believe drinking from a pretty cup makes the experience more joyful! Just like wearing a great looking set of matching exercise outfit makes you feel (and look) good & put an effort into exercising for longer & better. Wearing a matching set of underwear makes you feel ‘nice’! It’s all relative…. this ‘relation’ happens to work for most people. I like to drink water from a nice cup because I’m not a very good water drinker. So wrapping my hand and mouth around a solid ‘good looking’ Simple Modern Classic Insulated Tumbler that comes with both a Straw and Flip or Clear Lid, which so happens to fit the bill for minimum amount of water required to drink on a daily basis is a win win for me! This great quality tumbler comes in various colours and sizes, in 12oz, 16oz, 20oz, 24oz and
8. SPF, SPF, SPF 50+
I can’t shout enough about how important it is to wear SPF on a daily basis. Those glaring artificial UV (blue) light reflecting from the screen onto the face can’t be good for the skin in the long run. Neither is your desk positioned where the sun filters through the window/blinds, placing you directly onto its glare. I’m no beauty expert, so I’ll let Ms Caroline H do the talking! Here’s one of the many affordable effective one she talks about, the Bondi Sands Sunscreen Lotion Spray SPF 50+ is highly recommended and I love it as well!
9. Desk Lamp
A good reading lamp is essential for an option of subtle lighting in the work area instead of a bright ceiling light. Love this chic portable Weareok Desk Lamp with Wireless Quick Charger that will look cool in any space. Bonus of 5 light settings, auto shut off and an in built wireless charging point!
Another great option in white is the TaoTronics LED Desk Lamp with USB Charging Port with 5 Lighting Modes and 7 Brightness Levels.
10. Under Eye cooling gel strips
The Doppeltree Hydrogel 24k Gold under eye mask is a little treat for tired under eyes, can be used whilst typing away with no meetings scheduled …. for a while anyway. If you would like to go all out, the Doppeltree Premium Hydrogel 24k Gold Face Masks is extremely refreshing, saturated with 24K nano gold, collagen, Hyaluronic acid and Vitamins C + E.
11. Essential Humidifier
12. Under desk stool
AMERIERGO Adjustable Foot Rest Cushion a sole saver under desk foot rest for improved posture, sciatica and orthopaedic relief.
