Holiday season just started! My 2018 xmas list.

3 Dec

The turkey day is over, everybody has recovered from the food coma, Black Friday is over, the Xmas tree has been lit at the Rockefeller center … it means that the hunt for the perfect gift has just started!

Here’s my list

1. The weighted blanket aka the Gravity blanket. To fall asleep faster and deeper naturally thanks to the tiny micro beads inside the blanket that will hug your body.

2. I broke my Apple Watch serie 1 and it’s true I was always watching my wrist when I was not watching my iPhone … but I miss it. Need to close the rings, need to know what time it is in Paris and when I have my next appointment … $399 for the Apple Watch serie 4 GPS 40mm.

3. I’m a sneakerhead and I would like a private session with Dexter the Creator to customize my Van’s. Please Dexter? Dexter is one of the creatives of Surgeon Studios founded by Dominic “The Shoe Surgeon” Ciambrone.

4. Winter time calls for comforting food. What comforts me is ramen, and the first ever one star Michelin ramen joint is Tsuta Tokyo in Tokyo! I always wanted to visit Japan …

5. CO and fires claimed too many lifes lately and it’s time to protect your love ones with a detector. I chose the battery-powered Nest Protect ($119) because it combines CO and smoke detection as well as an off site monitoring through the iPhone.

6. Follow your luggage even closer than your airline. No more lost luggage with Airbolt, a Bluetooth TSA-compliant lock which let you track your luggage on your phone (iPhone and Android). Exists in 4 colors, $78,99.

7. To protect my brand new iPhone XR, I would fancy the Rockform Predator ($119). Design, light with a magnet to stick it all over ..

8. The brighten my interiors during the cold, blustery, snowy winter, I need the Pina Colada lamp (flamingo pink, $90) by The Goodnight lamp.

Behind the wheel. 

5 Aug

I’m back behind the wheel after 15 years of taking the metro and riding the skateboard, and, as you know me now, I like to be prepared.
You never know what can happen, so let’s get ready (maybe I’m watching too many bad movies …).

Sometimes during accidents, your belt is stuck and you need to cut it to escape the wreckage. I got your back!

And if you need to break the window and kicking doesn’t cut it, I got it covered too thanks to the StatGear Auto Escape Tool.
For only $9,95 you have the 2 in 1 tool that will cut the belt and break the window. In the rest position, the Escape Tool is securely fastened to the sun breaker ready to be used.

Hydration is key during long summer drive in Florida, it’s great to have an ice tea that stays cold during hours. With the insulated Klean Kanteen (double wall bottle, dish-washer friendly), your beverage will stay cold 24 hours and warm 12 hours.

Also if it’s really hot out there, it’s good to have the hydration tabs to drop in your bottle.
Then you fill it with water (the Nunn tabs are unsweetened, so no sugar kick and down, just the electrolytes straight to your muscles).
Those tabs are made for desk jobs but also to support my sport activities where I’m sweating big time and loosing lots of electrolytes.

And if I’m hungry on the way home, I always have a package of Jerky in my backpack, the Mapple Bourbon Churro from Three Jerks Jerky is my favourite flavour.

I’m always fully charged with my Aluminium Dual Car charger (from Rokform).
It’s a great combo with the Rokform suction mount for iPhone (for once, a stand that’s not falling off the windshield … priceless).
I love the 2m~6feet charging cable by Apple to charge the phone while using Waze to find my way.
The 2nd slot is used for charging my external batteries.

In the trunk, I use the Gear Tie  Loopable Twist (from Niteize) to secure my skateboard and stuff that could be moving in the trunk.

Safe travels!

Rock my cover!

29 Aug

imageDid you know you could customise your Rokform cover ?
One mouse click away and here I was on Rokform.com doing my little custo … Top, bottom, grip and bumper can be selected in lots of different colours. You can mix them to match your socks, eyewear, sports team or flag for 49$.

That’s what I just did for my 2nd cover (I already had the black/bullet gray standard cover) and decided to go Brazilian with yellow bottom and top and green grip and bumper (I’m already ready for the 2014 Soccer World Cup in Brazil;-)

Then, I went to bed and the next day I mailed Rokform to ask if I could order by the unit, I want to have different bumper colours to have more possibilities … And Britney from Rokform mailed me back asking for which colours I wanted!
I chose the white, yellow, orange and pink. Then Britney billed me on my PayPal account and here it is! Got my spare parts and I can protect and custom my cover as I want.
So if you want to buy parts of the Rokform cover, just mail them and they will make it happen!
The grip costs 5$, the bumper 9$.

PS1: Thanks Britney and Rokform.
PS2: The design of the bumper slightly changed and don’t protect the home button anymore which is better because I had to push hard on it and it didn’t like it.
