Back to school, on the smart side

1 Sep

Vacations are over, we had fun on the beach, BBQ everyday, made new friends, discovered new places… Basically we enjoyed our time off before the rat race starts again.
As we didn’t win the Powerball, we have to go back to the office and we better be ready.
Here’s what I always have with me to face the worst.

. Extra battery for my iPhone, iPad and computer, the Sherpa 50 by GoalZero (powered by a solar panel!!)
. Jump Cable by Native Union, giving you a 30% boost and serving a a charging cable too
. Klean Kanteen bottle, to cut on using plastic
. Nunn tabs to stay hydrated during the work day
. Luminox watch, the brand of the Navy Seals (I switched to the textile bracelet to have it a bit funkier)
. A Bluetooth earpiece, the New Era by Jawbone (4 hours autonomy, super light)
. Tile, a bluetooth tag that helps me not to forget my stuff behind (in this case my wallet)
. Shine by Misfit to track my daily and night activity
. And my beloved Biscuit skate by Hamboards to land-surf to the office and back home (still practicing).
Have fun, work well and the next vacations are around the corner!

Hang in there!

Being a techie, or always looking for a smart product doesn’t free you from your daily chores at home … one of them is the washing. I already got the two in one sink/washer from Smeg and I need a smart way to dry it.

I started looking for a wash dryer system to hang my laundry home image(I don’t have a garden, only concrete …).
I bought a regular dry system (even if you fold it it takes room and is not that handy to handle, and it looks ugly), but as you know regular is not enought for me and I kept looking for the perfect system.
I narrowed down the contestants to gearlines (the ones used when camping).
I bought it and brought it home to start testing it. And I must admit that it is really useful even if you don’t live in a tent!
My choice went to the brand Niteize, the line comes with 2 gear ties and 10 different sizes S-Biners (the competitors just give you the line and you need to find a way to attach it.
My line is 4 feet long, but also exists in 2 feet length.
I use it horizontally for the wash to dry and vertically to listen music in the bathroom and hang my speakers and iPhone.
Cheap and polyvalent, it’s how I like it.image

3 tips to optimize the use of your S-biner in your daily live.
ONE, I use it to tie my bag, so nobody but me can put their hands inside of it…
TWO, I like to secure my bag to my chair while drinking a rootbeer at a terrasse …
THREE, I don’t like to carry around my Klean Kanteen so I hook it up to my bag so I can keep texting my friends …
