Beat Jet-lag With These Cool Apps | Clozette


If you’re the jet-setter kind of girl, then you probably understand how difficult it is to deal with jet-lag. Exploring new places is really fun, but having to fly across different time zones can be quite a hassle. Imagine having to deal with being fatigued all day long and having trouble falling asleep or staying awake. It’s even more of a bummer if you need to re-adjust to your regular sched stat. That’s why we’ve listed down a few handy apps that can help you treat that nagging inconvenience.

 


Timeshifter


iOS | Android


With the Timeshifter, jet-lag is history. Based on your sleep and the circadian cycle, this app used by athletes and astronauts can help you personalise your plans and arrive at your destination feeling your best. Based on your activities, Timeshifter advises you to take small actions at specific times, like avoiding light, or drinking caffeine, to gradually shift your body clock so you can enjoy your trip to the fullest. Luckily, this helpful app is available for both users.


Entrain


iOS


Similar to Timeshifter, Entrain hopes to help you with your jetlag by giving you a personalised schedule. By recording your lighting history, you’re suggested a lighting schedule based on research developed by students of University of Michigan. What’s more, is that you can opt to contribute your data to jet-lag studies. Now you help and you get a good night’s sleep wherever you go.



Headspace


iOS | Android


Sometimes everything that prevents us from getting our sleep can just be solved by a moment of silence and relaxation. Headspace helps you get just that by offering guided meditation sessions to help you with your stress and sleep. Although it’s not a travel specific app, it can still can help you have a well-rested trip.




Uplift


iOS | Android


Your sleep isn’t the only thing being affected by jet-lag. It also disrupts your digestion, stress levels, and immune system among other things. To help you with that, Uplift uses a natural solution to re-sync your body: acupressure. You simply enter your itinerary and Uplift will give you acupressure points you need to focus on so you can re-adjust in just a few minutes.

 

 

Spotify


iOS | Android


Last but not the least, Spotify— yes, that’s right, your go-to music player can also help with your jet-lag problems. It’s pretty difficult to fall asleep when you’re distracted with worrying thoughts and noise next door. And that’s where Spotify comes in. It’s pretty straightforward—you pop on some relaxing tunes from the tons of sleep music playlists available in the app, to lull yourself to sleep.

While we’ve heard all about the exciting upcoming beauty launches last Monday, today, we’re ending the week with the hottest fashion news of the week. It’s all here — from the show-stopping outfits of Game Of Thrones' cast to interesting collections coming this summer. Keep on reading so you don’t miss it!

 

The Game Of Thrones cast stuns on the red carpet 

 


The cast of the hit HBO series assembled in Radio City Hall in New York for their eighth season premiere. The event was attended by most of the cast members — including the departed favourites — and they all dazzled on the red carpet with their looks fit to rule the throne. Lena Headey, unfortunately, missed the night — not because she had some violent scheming to do, but because of her illness. Thankfully, she’ll still grace our screens for a bit longer (hopefully!) when the show finally arrives next week. 


Streetwear meets high fashion in Jean Paul Gaultier’s new collaboration with Supreme

 


Following the footsteps of other high fashion brands like Louis Vuitton, Gaultier decided to work with Supreme because of his love for sportswear. Very little is known about this new collab, but it was announced that Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon will be the face of the collection. Surely, it’ll be worth the hype when we finally see Supreme X Jean Paul Gaultier in all Supreme stores to be launched this 11 April.

Have you heard? Queen Bey has just been announced as Adidas' latest creative partner for a multi-layered project. Not only is the globally renowned bestselling artist set to develop a signature streetwear and footwear line with the brand, her Ivy Park clothing line — which was initially launched with Topshop in 2016 — will also relaunch under Adidas. 



What's interesting about this team-up is that even with Beyoncé's long-standing reign as one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, her lineup of collaborations has definitely been thin — at least thinner than those within the same spectrum of fame. This is why a long-term commitment to partnering with a brand, especially a streetwear and athleisure brand at that, is really an exciting phenomenon for both the avid members of the BeyHive and those who simply love fashion in general. Still, we have to hold our horses first as details are still slim considering that the project is still in its early stages. 


So what do we do while we wait? We say stock up our wardrobe with some more kicks to prepare ourselves for Adidas x Beyoncè's future athleisure lineup. Agree? We've got the best options below. 


Cole Haan GrandPrø Turf


Cole Haan GrandPrø Turf

SGD239/~USD177


With its handstitched detailing and classic silhouette, this new release from Cole Haan in celebration of spring is for you. Enhanced with their Grand.ØS technology that mimics the foot’s natural flexibility for ultimate movability and comfort, this pair is also lightweight and undeniably fashionable, giving your gait more grace and style. It also comes in classic black, clean white, and a stunning salmon pink that all give the right cross between smart-casual and athleisure, perfect for your daily affairs. 

adidas Originals Nite Jogger


adidas Originals Nite Jogger

SGD 220/~USD163


Another reimagined retro piece makes its way into the shelves this 11 April as Adidas offers new iterations of their '70s-inspired Nite Jogger model. Updating its look to match the essentials of the 'Creators of the Night', this sends streetstyle to the next level with its punchy and reflective aesthetic, making it perfect for all your adventures even after-hours.


Onitsuka Tiger x KANTA&KAEDE


Onitsuka Tiger x KANTA&KAEDE

SGD109 to 169/~USD80 to 120


If creative sneaks are more up your alley (and why wouldn't they be? to be honest), Onitsuka's new collaboration will definitely set your heart ablaze. Bringing us the creative genius of brother-and-sister duo KANTA&KAEDE, the collection explores hand-drawn patterns and intricate illustrations dressing up their classic MEXICO 66 model. The duo behind the designs was diagnosed with autism and have developed incredible artistic skills at a young age, bringing in a new layer to this collaboration. Aside from kicks, their patterns will also be present in other apparels by the brand. 



ASICSTIGER x Sneakerwolf GEL-KAYANO TRAINER™

ASICSTIGER x Sneakerwolf GEL-KAYANO TRAINER™

SGD229/~USD170


Whoever said history buffs dress geekily will definitely be proven wrong by this newest collaboration between ASICSTIGER and world-renowned Japanese designer Sneakerwolf. Embracing the theme 'Anarchy in the Edo Period' that is inspired by the country's rich history especially during the 18th century, the creation of the GEL-KAYANO TRAINER™ has its own story to tell. Following how Japanese commoners at the time cannot wear luxury colours or materials like purple, red, and gold, this shows the breaking of a rebellion by combining these elements to create a modernised statement piece. It also features an insole design with a circular ‘A’, which fans would be able to recognise as Sneakerwolf’s iconic Kanji-graphy and artistic style. If you're looking to refresh your sneaker collection with an eye-catching pair, this one truly fits the bill.
