There is a black hole somewhere in our universe that has the following things of mine: pens, emery boards, erasers and pencil sharpeners, black socks, the dollar coins I keep in the car for the shopping trolley, tubes of lip balm and hair elastics. No matter how many times I replace these items, they are never at hand when I need them.
So if you have just completed the world’s neatest French braid on your seven-year-old daughter’s hair and you reach for the all important hair elastic, only to find… none, then get yourself a Bb.Bandball. It’s basically 100 multi-coloured hair elastics in a handy ball so it’s less likely to get lost amongst bathroom stuff than a lone hair elastic!
The Bb.Bandball is US$20 and is available from Bumble and Bumble, but unfortunately you will have to rely on a freight forwarder to bounce it you in Australia.
