WaterField Designs upgrades the beloved duffel in office-appropriate materials to fit right in at the gym, office or on any weekend pursuit. The roomy and refined Bolt Duffle Bag is available with one or two main compartments and in two sizes; thoughtful details like flaps that open and shut quickly with hidden magnets, waterproof zippers, and generously-sized leather handles, add to the bag’s exceptional performance.

WaterField Designs, an innovative maker of custom laptop sleeves, and designer bags and cases for digital gear, introduces the handsome Bolt Duffel Bag for professional and recreational use. Constructed from waxed canvas or ballistic nylon with premium leather accents, the Duffel is available with one or two main compartments and in two sizes. Thoughtful details like flaps that open and shut quickly with hidden magnets, waterproof zippers, and generously-sized leather handles, add to the bag’s exceptional performance. The Outback Duffel is roomy, functional, and refined.

The two-compartment model separates clean clothes from shoes and dirty clothes, and the one-compartment is sized just right for stacking folded shirts and sweaters neatly for a weekend trip. The Outback functions well as an executive workout duffel, an airline carry-on, or a weekender bag. Dual carry options further the Duffel’s utility—leather-gripped handles are long enough to alternate between hand and shoulder, and a removable shoulder strap includes a sliding shoulder pad. The sturdy materials and quality construction can withstand years of wear and tear.

“This Bolt DuffelBag has quickly become a wardrobe staple for me,” shared Gary Waterfield, company founder. “It’s so versatile—in addition to the gym, I take it on photo shoots; I use it as a bike bag; and sometimes it’s my office bag for all the work gear I have to carry.”

Five reasons your child might get lice!

Head lice Hotspots

www.hedrin.co.uk

FACEBOOK | YOUTUBE

Most children will experience head lice at some point when growing up, with children aged between four and 11 being most susceptible1. Hedrin estimates that between 10-20% of children will be suffering from head lice at any one time. Despite it being common, lice can be a concern for parents, with a survey by Hedrin revealing that a third of parents feel stressed about finding lice and almost half fear judgement from others if their child has lice2.

Whilst it is widely believed that head lice can jump from on head to another, in reality they can only be transferred through head-to-head contact. In order to help you prepare for a potential outbreak, here are some of the hotspots where children make head-to-head contact and may get head lice:

School
Close contact can occur when children literally get their heads together over group project work at school. In addition most primary schools have two to three playtimes a day where children might be inseparable from their best friends, bumping into one another, getting up close and chatting in the playground; all scenarios which can help head lice spread. With that in mind, schools and parents can download or request a useful pack to help manage an outbreak. The pack includes posters for schools, head lice alert cards and a letter to send to parents, as well as a parent’s guide and a family planner.

Sleepovers
Sleepovers often involve late nights, midnight feasts, getting cosy for the latest film or crowding together over the trendiest gadget. All these activities involve several children in close proximity which generates a lot of close head-to-head contact, making it the prime opportunity for lice to spread. Therefore, when you send your child on their next sleepover, try protecting from lice with a clinically proven product such as Hedrin Protect & Go. If you haven’t had a chance to take preventative measures then it is a good idea to check their hair for any sign of lice when they return bleary eyed the next day. In general, it’s good to remember “once a week, take a peek”.

Selfies
The selfie culture is another cause for concern when it comes to the spreading of lice. The tendency to snap away to get that perfect shot leaves plenty of time for lice to transfer between heads. As more and more friends gather to get in the frame, the lice can make the most of their opportunity and sure enough, the letter home to parents is as good as on its way.

Siblings
Besides school friends, children often spend lots of close contact with their siblings, so whether they are sitting around the television, or engaging in a bit of rough and tumble play, they have a lot of direct contact which is an ideal opportunity for lice to spread. If you do find a child has head lice, make sure you treat with a clinically proven product such as Hedrin Once which takes just 15 minutes to work and only requires one treatment. It is also important to remember that you only need to treat the hair if you find live lice, it is not necessary to treat the whole family ‘just in case’ but you should check everyone – including Mum and Dad.

Storytime
While it is less common for adults to get head lice, as they are less likely to make head-to-head contact with others, it is still possible, particularly for parents and grandparents. Activities such as reading your child a bed time story can sometimes be enough to catch the little critters. As you read a favourite story (possibly for the seventh time that week) and as your child clambers over to get a better look at the illustrations, it creates the perfect opportunity for lice to crawl from your child’s head to your own or even the other way around.

Be wary of the situations and check your child’s hair regularly, however if the inevitable does happen, use a quality product to rid of the infestation quickly and make sure that you check everyone else in the family.

Protect against lice with Hedrin Protect & Go

Hedrin Protect & Go is a fuss-free spray which, when applied twice-a-week, protects children from a louse infestation by breaking their life cycle and killing lice before an infestation can become established.

The Orange & Mango scented conditioning spray is also ideal for times when the risk of infection increases, such as the beginning of a new school term, at children’s parties and following an outbreak letter from the school.

The protection spray contains an organic compound called 1,2-octanediol (Activdiol®) which disrupts the life cycle of head lice preventing their spread. It is easy to apply and dries naturally leaving the hair looking healthy and conditioned.

Christine Brown, school nurse consultant and head lice specialist, said: “Head lice infestations can be hugely frustrating for parents and children alike. An effective preventative solution that offers greater control and reassurance is not only a real breakthrough, but could drastically reduce the number of infections. The spray is also kind to children’s hair and should be used as part of the regular cleaning regime, much the same as cleaning teeth or using a shampoo.”

Hedrin Protect & Go Spray is available in 120ml £4.29, 200ml £6.29 and 250ml £7.29. Available from pharmacies and leading retailers including Boots. It is skin friendly and contains no known asthma triggers.

Treat lice with Hedrin Once


Hedrin Once is clinically proven to kill lice and eggs with just one 15 minute treatment4,5. A thicker gel formulation which contains Penetrol®, to aid penetration into the louse egg, Hedrin Once has been awarded the esteemed ‘Stamp of Approval’ from Mumsnet after 250 parents gave it the all-round thumbs up.

Christine Brown, community nurse and head lice specialist, said: “It is important to deal with head lice promptly to prevent the infestation from spreading further. By only requiring a single 15 minute application, Hedrin Once Liquid Gel significantly shortens the process for treating head lice, making it easier for parents, and increasing the chances of successful treatment.”

Available in spray gel (60ml £7.14, 100ml £11.73) and liquid gel (100ml £10.20, 250ml £17.86). Available from leading retailers including Boots.

My Nametags labels are easy to apply. Our coloured iron-ons are perfect for clothing and can be applied in less than 15 seconds. They even come with a 10 year washing guarantee. The coloured stickers can be placed on items or the care labels in clothing. They will stay in perfect condition in the dishwasher or even inside shoes.

GET BACK TO THE SCHOOL GRIND WITH KUISSENTIAL!

Kuissential Coffee Gadgets Will Help You Get You Through Your First Semester

Heading back to college isn’t just about getting all the right books and supplies… we know how hectic your new schedule can be. Getting back on track with early alarm clocks, transitioning to after school sports and activities are stressful to adjust to. Rise and grind this fall and take the headache out of your morning routine, by starting out with the perfect cup of coffee! Now no matter whether you take it black, with lots of cream and sugar, hot or iced, latte, cappuccino or espresso we can ensure your coffee will taste perfect every time with Kuissential’s coffee gadgets. Your long nights of writing papers just got a little easier with only the best coffee to get you through your day (and long nights)!

To get the best tasting coffee from your favorite brewing method, you need to start with FRESH, EVEN grounds of coffee. The Kuissential EvenGrind is an excellent option for home grinding because it uses a patent pending system to deliver a very even grind size, something not found with current affordable grinders. This new manual burr grinder design yields a much more consistent grind size at a fraction of the price of electric conical burr grinders. The home grinder you choose should be as accurate as possible because each brewing method calls for a specific grind size. If your coffee grinder doesn’t let you set the grind size and doesn’t make even sized coffee grounds, then your coffee will not brew correctly. Whereas the old design for a manual grinder had an unstable, free floating burr, our Kuissential EvenGrind includes a removable stabilizing cage that keeps the burr steady while still being easy to clean and an upper and lower bearing for extra support and smoother handle turning. Retail Price: $39.99.

Unlike other brew methods, the 8-Cup Stainless Steel French Press gives you absolute control over the infusion time (longer infusion time produces a bolder and stronger cup). Perhaps more importantly, the unique screen filter of the French Press allows essential coffee oils to make their way into your cup; oils that would normally be blocked out and eliminated by paper filters. Retail Price: $59.99.

Don’t want to share a Keurig with your roommate, but still want single serve coffee? Simply place the Kuissential Ceramic Coffee Dripper over your mug, set the paper filter, add coffee and boiling water, and your java fix will be satisfied within minutes. Unlike cheaper plastic drippers and counter-top coffee machines, the ceramic design does not pass any odors or flavor into your coffee. Retail Price: $12.99.

Are you a coffee lover that wants to enjoy barista quality frothed milk in the comfort of your dorm room? The Kuissential Automatic Milk Frother will help you turn your milk or cream into a rich, delicious, fluffy foam, that will transport you mentally to the Italian Countryside as you enjoy your homemade cappuccinos and lattes. This Deluxe Frother also gives you the option to heat up the milk as it froths. Retail Price: $69.99.

All Kuissential products are available on Amazon and kuissential.com.

Sadly, the lazy days of Summer are just about gone. Time to set that alarm clock again and give yourself enough time to start packing… lunches that is! This year, do yourself a favor and go back to school with a lunch box for everyone! Lunch boxes are bulky and hard to clean, and how much of your expensive plastic ware ends up in the trash? Oops! Stop wasting brown paper bags and go GREEN, BLUE, OR PURPLE with D’Eco Collapsible Silicone Lunch Boxes!

It’s estimated that on average a school-age child using a disposable lunch generates 67 pounds of waste per school year. That equates to 18,760 pounds of lunch waste for just one average-size elementary school. Admittedly, these products are extremely convenient, but what is the environmental cost to a country that relies so heavily on them? Many schools are pushing waste-free lunches, where everything must be either compostable or reusable, to reduce garbage and the cost of hauling it away. Think paper bags are better? Think again. The U.S. cuts down 14 million trees a year to supply the raw material to make paper lunch bags. Improve family lunchtime nutrition while reducing waste, with lunch boxes that cater to the needs of everyone in your family from elementary school to college!

This stylish container collapses to ⅓ its original size for easy storage, and is equipped with two compartments for those picky eaters! On-the-go and forgot your utensils? Don’t worry a matching fork and spoon snaps right into the lid! D’Eco Lunch Boxes are BPA and Phthalate FREE, as well as dishwasher and microwave safe.

Finally, the key to lunch bliss that you and your kids can use to eat lunch in style. D’Eco Lunch Boxes are perfect for on-the-go meals and snacks! Take them with you outside the school or work week, making a great companion for sporting events, picnics in the parks, outdoor concerts and long road trips in the car, rail or plane.

One person using reusable lunch containers over their lifetime would remove more than 22,000 plastic bags from the environment. Isn’t that an even better incentive?

Available for purchase on Amazon, decohousewares.com, and specialty retailers nationwide.

Kids Collapsible Lunch Box retails for $12.99 and the larger version for adults is available for $19.99.
