And you would like to cool down a bit? I got your back and found you the perfect solution: move to London!
Just kidding, to cool down during my gym workout, I can’t part from my towel. It’s not just a towel, it’s a smart towel that cools me Photo 19-03-2014 5 18 43 pmdown.

How does it work?
1. Drown the towel in the sink, the microfibers love the water/sweat and will absorb it
2. Soak the towel
3. Snap it so the air flow will activate the cooling down process
4. Wear it around your neck, you will immediately feel the cooling effect

The towel is used by pro golfers, football players, tennis men and women and … me, so why not you too?

The Enduracool towel is made by the American company Mission. It exists in 2 sizes (large in 7 colours for $14,99, XL in 3 colors for $19,99).
Also in that line, the cooling hoodie, the skull cap as well as the arm sleeves.

Did you know that the Enduracool towels are
. chemical-free
. light
. UPF50 protection
. reusable and you wash it cold in machine

Sent by my iPhone? What about your e-mail signature?

imageWhat’s your signature ?
When you send a mail with a smartphone, you have an automatic not-always-wanted signature at the bottom of your mail.
For the iPhone, it simply says “sent by my iPhone” but I’m sure that, like me, you would like to customise it!

Let’s do this in 3 clicks on your iPhone!
. ClickOne, Go to “Settings
. ClickTwo, select “Mails/Contacts/Calendars”
. Then scroll down to ClickThree “Signature
You can have one signature for all your email accounts or one for each account.
I decided to customise my signature for each account (one professional and one personal).

imageNow, it’s your turn 😉 but here is the tip: type your data, don’t copy/paste your signature from a mail or doc because then when you type your messages, the automatic warp won’t work and you will be written “outside” your screen and it’s a pain …

Innovative products soon in my pocket

10 Mar

20140307-082634.jpgNiteize is a great brand for indoor daily uses and outdoor activities.
I use everyday their biners, gearties and flashlight and … I’m not a hunter.
It’s an innovative brand which keeps developing new products, so I have to keep it up and test their new products.

And talking about new products, 4 raised my interest during my lunch break: the Screenskate to wipe clean my iPhone screen, the Doohickey key tool to basically do everything I can’t do with my fingers and nails, the Inova Squeeze light to have a tiny light always with you and the Geartie mount perfect to tie and not loose my earphones.

They are ordered and I will start testing them very soon now. Stay tuned …

Breaking news, I chased a great deal for you!

Do you still want my picture? Part2

PolagramI already introduced you to Polagram, the app to print your beautiful pictures on paper, stickers, iPhone cases, …

Now, I’m testing it and decided to go for the PolaSticks and the PolaStyle.

The PolaSticks.
PolagramBasically, I’m seduced by the fact that Polagram will print my pictures on high quality re positionable stickers.Polagram
I’m able to stick and re-stick them on any slick surfaces (windows, fridge, back of the drawers and shelves, …) without destroying the material.
It’s perfect for the office and home! And I’m sure my nephews will love it. Better than magnets!

The hardest part was to chose 9 of my best shots.
My pictures come from my “Camera roll“.
Then, when my selection is completed, I simply followed the path to ordering and delivering.

Then I started to chase the mailman for my PolaSticks. I didn’t know what to expect. Thin or thick ? Durability ? Stick and re stick 2 times and then no more ?

Then I received my pink envelop and was surprised by the super thin stickers.

And I started to stick, un stick, re stick, un stick … Until I found the right spot, took me a full day.
The stickers are super resistant and keep the material clean as promised.

It’s really a cool product and since then I ordered another set of 9 PolaSticks with family and holidays pictures

Then I wanted to send some souvenir pictures to a friend living down under in Australia.
I decided to go for the “PolaStyle” and to have it delivered straight to my friend’s mailbox in Melbourne.
Same process here too,
. selection from my Camera roll, but also from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and this is neat,
. edit/crop if needed,
. add a personal message,
. then fill in the address of my friend, pay using PayPal or bank cards and without more ado, the prints are in their way (delivery the next day)!
I already sent another set of pictures to Belgium.

I’m now a regular customer of Polagram!

You want to test the app and send some pictures to mom, BFF or to yourself? Then I advise you use the promotional code “CHASEITOR” and get 25% OFF when checking out (valid worldwide on any Polagram products, until March 8th)!
