Sure, some jobs are a dream and some are soul crushing. Some provide prestige while others merely a paycheck. But the one office gig equaliser? The fact that most positions require employees to spend the majority of their day sitting down. And if you’re on your butt for hours on end, you definitely want a well crafted chair at your disposal.
That’s right, don’t underestimate the importance of a good desk chair. A solid, comfortable chair lends itself to a productive and efficient work environment. An uncomfortable chair leads to constant fidgeting and shifting, which can be highly distracting. Even worse, it may result in leg issues, back strain, or carpal tunnel syndrome. And having a day job is painful enough already. Read more…

The new season of Queer Eye is finally here — which has us all wishing we could make seared beef filet with herbs and heirloom tomatoes look as casual as Antoni does.
The easy part is getting your kitchen equipped: Amazon is offering up to 46% off Cuisinart cast iron cookware today, bringing select dishes down to $70 or under.
Cast iron is a must-have in any serious kitchen — but you’ll find that out after seeing countless Pinterest recipes call for one. The old-fashioned metal is known for its heat retention properties, wide recipe versatility, and durability (hence the obsession with Le Creuset, but spending $300 on a single pot isn’t for everyone.) Cuisinart’s porcelain enamel coating acts as an extra barrier to prevent imparting flavors or absorbing good smells. Read more…

A toaster may not seem like an appliance that should be a premium purchase — how hard can it be? Yeah, that’s everyone’s thought until only one side of the bread gets toasted or a bagel gets stuck and catches on fire.

KitchenAid has a new Walmart-exclusive line of cooking gadgets and tools — possibly as a tribute to KitchenAid’s 100th birthday a few months ago — and we are psyched. KitchenAid is our jam.
There are no new stand mixers in the collaboration (boo), but other gorgeous cooking gear like utensils, strainers, bowls, and more can up the style factor in your kitchen. And that stuff is just as important as the big appliances.
Not surprisingly, you can expect premium materials, heat-resistant handles, stainless steel blades, and dishwasher-safe plastic. It’s all super affordable like the rest of Walmart’s prices (nothing over $40, actually), but still rocks that KitchenAid name and quality. That’s a win-win you won’t find anywhere else.
A few of our favorite pieces are below, but you can shop the whole collection here. Read more…

If you’re looking to do something to benefit your health, juicing could be a great place to start.

Not to mention, of course, they can be delicious and refreshing.
If you’re looking to get into the home-juicing game — good for you! You’re doing something great for your health and will also probably save a ton of money on store-bought juices that can cost up to £8 for just a little bottle. However, when it comes to making your own juices, the kind of juicer you use can really make or break your experience. Don’t worry, we’re here to help. To start, we compiled a list of the top-rated juicers according to Amazon reviews. Read more…
