I’ve decided I wouldn’t spend my next few week-ends running across Paris to find the perfect Christmas gifts, should it be for me or for my beloved ones. Instead, I would just seat behind my desk at home in my PJ and take advantage of some online resellers’ free shipping policies! I’ve started with Mr Porter, which you shouldn’t be surprised about if you’re a regular of this blog. We dudes don’t have much choice when it comes to online shops for proper menswear. If it weren’t for Mr Porter, I’d be short a few shirts and scarves and ties and shoes in my weekly rotations! Stay tuned for daily “wishlist” items in fashion, design, books, skincare, watches and many more until we reach Christmas day!Read More
What if sending money was as simple as sending an email? Square has a new service called Square Cash (available on iOs and Android) that makes sending money as easy as sending an e-mail, literally. All you do is punch in how much you need to send, type in your friend’s e-mail address, and once you link your debit card number the money is immediately on its way. Your lucky friend doesn’t even need to use the app or sign up for any services either, they just enter their debit card number and the cash is deposited into their account within 1-2 days! Love the concept, way easier than main actor, Pay Pal.Read More

Staying true to his concept of “simplexity” (i.e. giving visible simplicity to an object with complex functionality), famed French designer Ora-Ïto recently presented a full range of tech accessories with high aesthetic and functional value: including on-ear and over-ear headphones, earphones, Bluetooth speaker, mobile and tablet shells, folios, chargers and USB cables. Available at Colette store. Good designs at a fair price for once!
I don’t like my baby Nikon stuffed with plenty of accessories. I like it simple with my go-to 50mm lens. I don’t like the long Nikon strap that I have to roll around my wrist. I’ve long looked for a small handle to secure my grip and help me with this heavy camera but nothing would please me. Then, Hard Graft designed the Hold Camera handle. And my life changed.
Now if you lose your keys, you lose your iPhone charger. Very practical.Read More
If, like me, you dream about a Leica Monochrom but do not have Jay-Z‘s bank account balance to buy one, but you still want a classic B&W film? How about you do that for 15 euros with an Ilford disposable camera? I am buying a couple on Amazon right now.Read More
This is actually life changing right ? I’m always amazed how new technologies make our lives easier.
