Introducing my new best friend, Lumie. This little ray of sunshine is my favourite thing in the world right now. I know right, bold statement. It's a known fact that I hate winter and dark mornings are my idea of hell - I literally have to be turfed out of bed. If it wasn't for my three alarms and my boyfriend pulling me out of bed, I would happily stay there until daylight streams through the window to wake me from my slumber. But hey, places to go and work to do.
My parents got me this light alarm clock for Christmas and to say it's changed me is an understatement. 7am doesn't seem so bad when you're gradually being woken up with light instead of a screaming alarm - all you do is set it to start gradually lighting up half an hour before you're due to wake up. I usually end up waking up earlier than I need to because of this but it's so nice to feel refreshed rather than rush around after hitting the snooze button one too many times!
I also use the 'sunset' option too so when I'm getting ready for bed it gradually dims which is super relaxing. I like getting into bed when the light has about 5-10 minutes left and is giving a warm, cosy glow. The set up isn't the easiest/I'm not the best with instructions but once you've had a play it's pretty simple and SO worth it. If you struggle with waking up in the morning or even struggle unwinding for bed in the evenings this is literally perfect. Totally recommend it! Click here to see the full range.
