My 2017 xmas list

4 Dec

It’s that period of the year again! Time to dress the Christmas tree, drink dairy free eggnog and make THE list … momma you are on!

  1. I’m into jerky big time! Love the Three Jerks Jerky, Dick Stevens jerky, Chef Cut … but I would like to make my own … I need a dehydrator not a smoker (you don’t get the right temperature). My buds at Fleishers (Fleishers Craft Butchery) advised me to get a Cabela’s dehydrator. Let’s go for the 10-tray Deluxe at $199
  2. I’m moving to NYC next January, at the peak of the winter season and coming from Florida it will be a thermal shock!! To be prepared I need the Shelburne Parka from Canada Goose ($950)
  3. Back at the office with a real desk, colleagues, coffee machine, … I need to stay active and avoid back pain with a stand up desk. The Focal Upright Locus bundle is for me ($1,969)
  4. The Pyramid 25th year anniversary edition, you know the Vans that glows in the dark!
  5. What about a Velosolution pumptrack in the backyard? I don’t have the backyard yet, so meanwhile, I’ll visit the pumtrack in Brooklyn but keep it in mind for later …
  6. What do you need in your gloves box? What’s missing home? The Survival Axe Elite of course! It’s a 30 tools in one which will help you break a windows, hammer a nail, open a can, cut the seat belt in the car … and even a blade … for only $65 (exists in 2 colors army green or black/gold).
  7. With all my urban adventures, I need my beauty sleep. To count faster the sheep, I need the SHEEX LUXURY COPPER™ features ultra-soft PRO+IONIC™ bedsheet. Those are breathable, moisture-wicking sheets to keep me cool, dry and comfortable while I’m sleeping. Cherry on the cake, be aware that the copper releases ions that may decrease oxidants in the body ($209,99 for the queen size).

Wishing you an happy holidays!

My Xmas list 2013

1 Dec


Dear e-Santa,
This is my 3rd Xmas list yet! And this year again I chose smart products with an edge.
I hope you’ll like it and that the trunk of your car will be big enough to carry it all home 😉
1. Nest Protect
Now that it’s a legal obligation in many countries to have a smoke alarm detector home, let’s comply in style with the Nest Protect. This smoke detector is linked to your home wifi network and can even send you emails. When its alarm is triggered by your smoking toasts, just wave to the sensor and it’s muted! Price: 129$
2. Netatmo
I never know how to dress when I wake up, I need intel! Is it going to be cold, warm, raining, … I never know. With the Netatmo, you’ll be monitoring your very own weather station from your iPhone. Temperature out/in, huminidity, air quality, CO2 concentration, pollution, barometer, all in your iPhone! Price: 169euros
3. D*Haus table
This is not a regular table but a table developed following a mathematical formula invented by the English mathematician Henry Ernest Dudeney back in 1903! The Project was successfully funded on Kickstarter some months ago and is now available to everyone. The D*Haus table offers 8 low tables in 1 by repositionating the 4 distinct shapes that compose the table. Price: 1.500GBP

4. Nike Free Flyknit+
Those would look great on my Cinderella’s feet. With the feel of a sock, no need to wear a sock. The sole is a 5.0 (meaning the thickest of the Free line), super comfie! Price:160$
5. Rubik E.Ion, E.ion System
When you cook, it smells food … Normal that’s why you have an extractor hood (with or without evacuation). The E.ion system by Falmec is the future of your regular extractor hood. Not only it will take care of the kitchen odors, it will also clean the air  in your home. E.Ion models are available ranging from 2.500 to 3.300euros
6. BMX i3
Let’s go serious about electric cars with this BMX. Kilometre range is at the top of the market with 300km on a full charge. If you are out of power, a tiny regular motor will take you to the next plug.
Made of plastic fibre panels moulded and glued together (BMX invented a special glue for this car), with 4 seats and a tiny trunk, you’ll be all set for urban rides and small burbs trips. Price: 30.000€

7. Compression Calf Sleeves /UA1952b
After a long day running like a rabbit you’ll be pleased with the relief coming from those compression calves. Just put them in  after your long day and … REST, the sleeves will do the rest. You have the choice between black and white. Price: 44,95$
8. Mogo by Focal Upright
Stop lolling in your chair at the office and start thinking about an healthy position that will relieve your back, neck and shoulders. It’s also a great object, design, portable, that you will be able to use on the go. I love it. Price: 100$
9. Makerbot Digitizer
3D printer are highly fashionable but the problem is to nurmerize your ideas … not anymore with the Digitizer by Makerbot, the BFF to your 3D printer! Scan any object, edit/correct it and then 3D-print it. A must-have if you are already into 3D printing. Price: 1.550$
