What are the odds?

9 Jan

I never play any games or lottery as I never win, the odds seem to be against me …
Once upon a time, there was this super cool safety bag I discovered on Kickstarter …

It was called the Loctote bag and was basically a drawstring bag … or so you thought … actually it’s a personal safe. It will safely store your valuable (at home, at the beach, at the hotel, …) and you can be sure that they will wait for you to come back.

So, once upon a time … Loctote organised a contest, I participated and … against all odds, I won!

I just received my Loctote drawstring bag before Christmas and now I’m sharing its uses with you.

First, this bag is made with a very resistant material.
So resistant that you can try to cut it open with your sharpest knife and it won’t leave a scar (watch your fingers though). You can’t also try cut its strings, won’t work. No more slashing!

Second, the Loctote bag comes with 2 grommets. You will secure it tight with a provided 3-number lock, no more unwanted hands in your bag. Then you can tie it to a pole, a chair, … whatever that is heavy and difficult to move. You can rest safely nobody will run away with your Loctote bag. 

Third, the Loctote contains an interior pocket which is RFID-blocking. Perfect to store the payement cards and passports. No more picking data. 

Fourth, the Loctote is water resistant. Even better. 

Away, I use my Loctote bag as a personal safe when I travel as I need to store the valuables l don’t want to carry with me like my passport, bank cards, cash, …. I tie it to some fixed or very heavy furniture in my hotel room and I can have a ride in my skateboard with peace of mind. 

At home, I store my social security card, check book, …
Thanks Loctote, it’s a great versatile bag perfect for home and away … and I am an happy winner.

It’s party time everyday!

21 Jun

Coming straight from Kickstarter, the guys from Power Practical founded their project and started to produce the Luminoodle.

I backed the project because it answers some of my needs

. An extra lamp powerful and portable

. An extra lamp that you could be used without a power outlet thanks to a tiny external battery (the LEDs are not hungry on energy)

. An extra lamp versatile enough to hang or stay in its pouch to brighten my indoor and outdoor

. An extra lamp that can face the real world and which is not fragile

I received my Luminoodle XL (10ft, $29,99) in its little pouch and I love it!
I use it everywhere, everyday, all the time.

The Lumidoodle looks like a xmas fairy light designed for everyday use…

Oh it’s THE O!

8 Sep

the OHow many times do you leave home in the morning, a little bit in a hurry, and you forget something you really need and you have to come back home? For me, the reasons of my early comeback can be that I forgot

  • the external battery for my phone,
  • my headphones,
  • my keys,
  • my wallet,
  • the badge for the office … and this is the short list

the O and it's key ringBasically, there’s always something we forgot at home that forces us to go back and get it.
So far, I have one TILE and it’s cool, but it is only really useful when I realise I don’t have my keys on me.
I only really use it for my keys as it is a bit clunky for anything else. And it only helps me see where I left my keys once I realise I have already lost them. At this point it is already a bit late, and I could be very far away from them.

What if there way something that could help you remember all your essentials before the morning departure? And proactively tell you in the very moment you were losing or forgetting them?

This device is called THE O and yes it’s another Bluetooth tag, but not only!
the O in action

  • THE O is  waterproof
  • and has an battery autonomy of 18 months
  • it everal accessories in the pack such as adhesives and a beautiful keychain accessory for keys and bags
  • You can sew it onto fabrics, perfect for a jacket or scarf or even umbrella
Chase It because
  • THE O creates a virtual leash between you and your belongings. The objects you don’t want to leave behind.
  • THE O will warn you the moment you are about to leave an item behind so you do not lose or forget it.
  • THE O knows when you are in a safe place so you do not get any alerts unnecessarily (at home or in the office for example)

The O is now on Kickstarter and it’s time to invest in this bright idea!

PS: You can even sew the O on your clothes!!

It’s not easy to be green …

20140502-092908.jpgI’m not talking about an episode of “Once upon a time” when Regina meets her evil sister Zelena … but about a great product called Cella.

Cella is a flexible, lightweight plastic kind of futuristic pot that will house small plants and moss.
20140502-092918.jpgThe creators at Ecoid based their idea on 15 years of study of the moss and also observation of the now fashionable concept of green roof.
With the Cella (coming in 3 sizes), you can now also have a moss ball in your office on your desk, hung on a wall, in the garden, inside or outside …
Let’s add some green in our urban life!
You’ll love it’s flexibility of use and low 20140502-092939.jpgmaintenance (if the Cella is indoor, just spray it with water 2-3 times a week) and if, like me, you don’t have a green thumb …
give Cella a chance and check their Kickstarter campaign.
