Occasionally, things come in, but, because it’s a heavy news day, we can’t get to it. For example, the EK Ekcessories’ items that went on sale in the UK late last year, but in fact, might be slightly more useful for the antipodean summer right now.
Motorhead Ed Kalbach started a ski shop in Logan, Utah but, in the American entrepreneurial way, has grown his business to carry over 7,000 outdoor accessories. The item that caught our eyes was the Dri Cat case, albeit for the Iphone 4 and 4S presently. It’s a waterproof case with lanyard that allows you to use your Iphone at the beach or in the rain, and the silicone shield still lets you touch the on-screen buttons. It retails at Â£24Â·99.
For stockists, call 44 1634 201-284; the products can also be found at www.ekekcessories.co.uk.
Storm’s scented candles, meanwhile, have gone on sale with vanilla, whiskey and fig, and grapefruit and lime flavours, ideal for summer, retailing in New Zealand for NZ$49. There’s more information at www.stormonline.co.nz.
Meanwhile, we know OPI gets us looking at nails regularly, but what about your feet? Its Feet range includes its Double Coverage (NZ$29Â·90), Callus Therapy (NZ$39Â·90) and a lacquer called Last Friday Night from its Katy Perry collection (NZ$24Â·90).
