As you crunch away at those late night hours, make sure to be armed with a few items of luxury.

If you’re the kind of entrepreneur that spends more time at their desk than at home, the last thing you want to worry about is what’s going on with you top to toe. To avoid turning up to a meeting looking like you actually live under that desk and to keep productivity at an all-time high, we’ve gathered some serious lifesavers.

Good hair day 

Get set for your lunchtime schmoozing and big meetings with a quick once-over of your mane to make sure you’re looking professional and sleek for your perfect pitch. The Original Iron from Cloud Nine is the perfect all-rounder to create curls, straight or wavy hair.

Keep connected

Long hours and endless phone calls often mean your battery dies at a crucial moment (like in the middle of sending that urgent email). Now you don’t even have to remember to plug it in.

Keeping hydrated is crucial as you plunder through your daily to-dos – and happily, Memobottle have devised a way to ensure you drink enough water without lugging a heavy bottle around. Their slim, paper-like water bottles reference the standard A5 and A6 paper sizes, taking up virtually no room on your desk – which leaves no excuse for not taking your regular swigs.
