Xmas list 2016

9 Dec

It’s that period of the year again when you give “discrete” hints to  close ones about what you would like under the Christmas tree … So mom, please pick the hints …

1. The best hoodie ever! Made in America by American Giant … for the chilly nights in Miami, $89

2. I eat sushis almost everyday, so I need chopsticks made with … recycled skateboards, $25

3. The brand new pocketable backpack  “Azimut Pack” … technical and versatile … is so for me, from Triple Aught Design, $120

4. I need a bedside lamp but no any lamp … the very bright and design portable Lumio light I saw at the Moma NYC will be perfect, $190

5. I’m always lost without a Philippe screwdriver, a cutting hook or a SIM card pick … it’s a bracelet! The “Thread” bracelet is the first wearable multi-tool by Leatherman, $165

6. To improve my skateboarding skills, I think that custom Vans will help … $90 for the Old Skool with suede.

7. I would fancy a painting of myself skating by artist Le Closier to hang above the chimney

8. I would like a furry friend … a dog from the shelter Urgent Dogs Of Miami

Have a wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah!!

 

Wrestling in the mud or spreading green clay?

23 Nov

Wrestling in the mud or spreading green clay?
Recently I started racing pumptracks, now I’m testing my balance and coordination doing tricks with my new skateboard …
You don’t make omelet without breaking eggs … I’m the egg … I get road rash, cuts and of course bruises … not good during the bermuda season in sunny Miami … I needed a solution … and I did found it with the green clay paste from the Clayers!

Let’s talk to Thibault (aka Tibs) the founder of the Clayers.
Who are you Tibs? How did you discover green clay?
I’m a professional skateboarder (@tibsparise) and I have been using the french green clay in France when I got injured. I healed up my knee, rashes and other wounds. I discovered it from a friend.
But since I’m in the USA, I couldn’t find this product I trust and love, so I decided to make it and share it.

What’s the green clay?
The French Green Clay is technically mud, but it is really rich in minerals and help the healing of injuries and skin issues. It’s natural and has been used for centuries, Cleopatra, soldiers, and more people have been using it.
French green clay is composed of different clays, illite, kaolin, montmorrillonite, bentonite and/or others.

Where is it coming from?
You can find green clay all around the World, but the one we use and have is from a volcanic area in France. It’s certified USDA Organic, it’s composed of 3 differents pure clay, which makes it unique and the purest in the world. Our clay is even scientifically proven. We have been picky on the choice of our ingredients, we care about quality.

How do you apply it?
The application is different as a cream, you have to apply a thick layer on the wound or skin condition, and let it dry. The more you apply, the more it absorbs and remove toxins. Just do not let it dry out on your face.

What can it heal?
It can heal inflammations, road rash, joint pain, bruises, sore muscle and more, also skin condition like acne, eczema, psoriasis, sunburns and burns.

What are the range of products available?
Right now we have

  • the Classic Clayer ready to use paste that you can use on everything we said above, it’s composed of our high quality French Green Clay and Alkaline water from Carlsbad California (6floz for $24)
  • the French Green Clay powder (20oz for $49)is available for your DIY facemask or poultice.

Thanks Tibs, this clay seems very interesting.
Actually, I’ve been testing it for some weeks now and I love it!
The great thing about the green clay is that it works too if you don’t skate … sprain ankle, tired muscles, … it will work miracles for anyone.
Do I like it? Yes!
Because it’s organic, because it’s easy to use and because it works!

Thanksgiving is around the corner and our friends from the Clayers are offering 40% OFF for Black Friday Week!

The polar bear has his very own bottle, me too!

Photo 19-03-2014 5 24 28 pmI love bottles, I carry mine everyday from home to the office and back home.
I also love to have my bottle when I travel.
My collection includes
. 2 aluminium Kleen Kantean (one double-wall, one regular simple wall),
. one Bryta with a filter,
. one spill-free Contigo,
and since a few days, a super cool Polar Bottle!

Again, I left home without my bottle, I was desperate and needed a bottle for the next 10 days in hot and sunny Miami. I couldn’t buy just any bottle! I needed a cool bottle that I would keep using back home.
After “a little benchmark of the market”, my choice went for the Polar Bottle.
A double-wall plastic bottle with a cool design but also practical and optimized for the best usage.
The characteristics of the Polar Bottle are the following
. light because of plastics,
. safe for your health because BPA and phthalate-free,
. dishwasher-safe (put in the top rack),
. freezer-safe,
. easy to maintain thanks to a removable valve,
. spill-free, and I tested it in my backpack where it’s laying on the bottom full of liquid and not a drop!

It’s not only a cheap ($10,95 for the 20 ounces) but also a trusted and stylish bottle.
