So, what is a student essential? A number for the nearest takeaway? Well yes there is that, but one other thing that a student needs is an alarm clock!
When I saw this Newgate Cubic alarm clock from John Lewis, I fell in love with the retro design and bold red glossy exterior. I knew I could trust a Newgate clock because they're a British company that has been designing stylish clocks for many years now and have gained a great reputation.
I'll be starting university in just over a week, but I thought I'd give my new bedside table accessory a tryout before I start relying on it to get me to my early morning lectures. I'll let you know that it definitely woke me up. There is no snooze button either so there's no point trying to have a sneaky extra ten minutes in bed which personally I see as a good thing.
In an age of digital technology, I think it's great how Newgate are staying true to their classic style by sticking with analogue. If you're looking for a reliable timekeeper then I really recommend this. There are a lot of different styles and makes in John Lewis stores and online too.
Are you a fan of this fun vintage style? Let me know your opinions!
