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!

I’m sensitive and soft …

15 Jul

Photo Jul 03, 8 04 27 PMSince I started pump racing, I must admit that balance is sometimes challenging and gravity calls me back to reality.
After hurting my right knee, left finger, right elbow and butt
I decided it was time to get a little bit of protection and to invest in what’s best out there …
I didn’t want the regular goofie pads but some cool, stylish, smart and efficient pads to protect my skin and bones … after all, it’s bermuda-time all year long in Miami, I can’t continue to buy bandaid and creams for bruises …

My brain is protected by a S1 Lifer helmet, no brainer you need an helmet when on wheels, … whatever the wheels ($60).

For the wrists, after a careful monitoring of the wristguards options available out there, I decided to go for the Flexmeter wrist guard double sided by Demon United. A flexible wrist protection (allowing the flexibility of the wrist). Price: $69,99.

For the knees ($69,99) and elbows ($69,99), the G-Form was the right choice. These soft pads protects almost every parts of your body with their Reactive Protection Technology (RPT). The soft protection stiffens on impact and then dissipate the energy.
The G-Form protections are

  • lightweight,
  • flexible,
  • breathable,
  • washable,
  • UPF50!,
  • and so comfortable to wear that you’ll forget them

Now, I’m ready to hit the tracks with style (trying) and protection!

And if I still got a bruise, time to plunge in the freezer and unwrap my DrCool bandage to minimize the swollen and the bruise!
