The long and slow mission begins at home - - grabbing hold of a piece of paper destined for recycling, and scribbling down the thoughts of mouth watering mushrooms, black olives and sundried tomatoes. Level 2 of the mission takes place in the supermarkets where the head begins to spin from the eyes scanning different prices for avocados that all look the same! Imported or domestic farmers, organic or “regular”, cheap or premium? Choice is the problem and so is chopping the vegetables into appetising pieces. Suddenly a container of 200 vitamin pills is turning out to be an easy fix for a 5 a day. But the purity in the soul felt after eating a salad is worth the trouble of sling tomatoes and swiping a olive oil remains from the kitchen counter. Here is a list of disregarded but useful accessories worth owning.

Watch & Cufflink box.
Sexism should not have a place in this world but the reality is that men are inferior to women when it comes to keeping things in order.

Having a hand on every travel documents during international travel can be difficult while fighting the strong forces of fatigue, stress and security check frustration. Avoiding digging through a million pockets in search of a misplaced boarding pass or sim-card can be done by storing everything in a travel wallet.
