- And the ice quantity
- The boba or the tapioca pearls
- The jelly (coconut, mixed, aloe vera or grass)
- Or the pudding
Spring is here (for the moment, so let’s enjoy while it lasts), it’s time to ride the Parisian cement with my Biscuit.
But what’s in my backpack to survive the day at the office?
Now, I’m ready for the office … Need to push faster my Biscuit as I’m already late …
It seemed far to me and my calves but I wasn’t sure. I decided then to download the free app RunKeeper and dropped the phone in the pocket of my bermuda. I tied my Shine tracker on my shoes laces and hopped on my board surfing the cement asKelly Slatter on the waves (I’m day-dreaming a bit …).
The objective was to compare the results from RunKeeper with my Shine and see which one was the more accurate.
The RunKeeper app is a great app and gives you the basics:
The Shine can be worn as a wristband or tied to my shoes on its clip (I decided to try both).
My Shine is nowhere near the truth …

of course, the battle takes places at home everyday but … Also when you stay in hotels …
Playing with the remote at the Conrad, Miami, I incidentally hit a page saying “Do you want to connect and use your phone as a remote control?” Yes, I do!
I downloaded the free app “stayConnect” and add the code you see on the screen … Less than 30 secs later I was the master of the TV from my phone. love it!
I love trail mix. It’s an easy way to eat healthy food as a snack.
Recently I discovered the granola and its a revelation.
I though granola was not for me because the oat (it didn’t look good to me, not sweet enough for me … Whatever).
Then, my best friend in Melbourne introduced me to the 1111Granola. I though this could be the new best friend of my breakfast and go along like horse and carriage with my chia pudding.
The 1111Granola is made home made with love by the owner Rob Rabba.
2 varieties are available so far Macadamia & Cranberries as well as Puffed Quinoa & Macadamia.
I’m a fan of the Macadamia & Cranberries, a mixture of macadamia nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Blended carefully with dried dates, cranberries and apricots. Our gourmet mix is coated with natural honey and spiced with cinnamon.
The Puffed Quinoa & Macadamia is Gluten Free with puffed quinoa, rice puffs and rice flakes, mixed with macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, blended with dried dates, cranberries and apricots. It’s is coated with natural honey and spiced with Cinnamon.
Did you know that granola is NOT muesli, granola is baked until crisp and sweetened unlike muesli! So now, we know the difference.

Like you, I have 2 ears, one phone and one iPad.
I don’t like holding my iPhone to my ear … I can’t play games, take notes, … while in conversation … That’s why I always use earphones.
I have the Yurbuds ($69) when I workout at the gym. They are waterproof and won’t fall during the effort thanks to the twist and lock system. The buds in silicone are pleasant to wear, easy to wear them all day long.
BUT there’s the wire which is always tangled … not cool.
I also use the New Era by Jawbone ($99), a super light bluetooth earpiece. Great to wear all day long, listening to music and talking to my contacts. This is a great earpiece that can be connected to up to 8 devices (the New Era will switch from one phone to another to take the call, I love it!). But it’s so tiny that I have to be careful not to lose it.
The autonomy is only 4 hours … a little bit short if you are a heavy user …
I’ve been recently introduced to the Powerbeats Bluetooth headset ($199) and I must admit I LOOOVE it!
The round the ear solves the issue of the popping out buds while running. Checked!
No more tangle and knots, the headset is bluetooth. Checked!
The headset comes with 3 different sizes and shapes of buds. After some tests, I found the ones fitting my inner ear. I can wear it all day long. Keep it in while talking. When I take them off, I leave it around my neck and it stays put.
The autonomy is 6 hours. Enough for a full day at work with a mix of listening to the radio whole on the way to the office and back home as well as conference calls. The Powerbeats are fully charged in about 90 minutes, 15 minutes of charging time will give an extra hour of listening to the music.
The cable linking both earpieces is made of silicon. While doing sport I wear it on the back of my neck, while talking on the phone I put in front of me to have the mic closer to my mouth.
So who wins the battle ? The Yurbuds, the New Era or the Powerbeats ? …
The Powerbeats because it replaces all my earpieces for my daily uses: talking, listennning to music, skateboarding, … I kept my Yurbuds while on the plane when watching tv shows.
PS: little downside of the Powerbeats is the fact that the headset can only be linked to one bluetooth device at a time … call me picky … still I love my Powerbeats!
Also, if you watch TV shows or movies with your wireless Beats, be aware that there will be a delay between what you watch and what you hear. I listen to music and talk on the phone with my Beats so I don’t mind.
A bit annoying though. :-(
