Hermione Way's most interesting possessions & the stories behind each



Vibease is the world’s first smart vibrator bringing fantasies to life with an immersive pleasure experience. I am the co-founder of Vibease and have been working on this startup for over three years. The hardware is a clitoral stimulator that pairs with an iPhone or Android app. The device works in sync with the story so when the story gets more intense so do the vibrations.


I carry it everywhere because you never know who you are going to meet, I met an investor on a train once and whipped our product out for a demo, by the end of the train ride he was seriously interested in investing.

MacBook Air


I’ve been using Airs’ for about 5 years now, I travel a lot for work, constantly on an aeroplane so the air makes my life easier because it is lightweight and fits into my handbag, plus when you open a mac, the previous screen illuminates straight away so it’s great for being able to work on demand from anywhere.

iPhone 6


I have almost a million followers online. I video blog my life a lot because I think life is interesting and I like to share my experiences a lot and it’s all from my phone. In terms of features I don’t think the iPhone 6 is much better than the 5, but I always upgrade for video purposes. On Facebook I am an influencer and recently got the Facebook Mentions app where I can do live video – the camera quality on iPhone 6 is great.

Lonchamps Bag


Pretty much every woman in the world has this handbag – it’s incredibly common, I like it because It’s incredibly practical – I carry a lot in my bag and the materiel is not only lightweight but really strong. I tried a couple of more fashionable bags but the bag itself was really heavy so by the time you added all my crap it weighed me down- you can see there are holes in the bottom of this bag because it has lasted over 5 years!

It fits my MacBook pro and the straps are large enough that it fits over my shoulders so I can multitask.


Another feature I like is the zip is really fluid, when I go into central SF or London and there are crowds of people I get paranoid about someone stealing my wallet or phone, but not with this bag I can quickly zip it up!


I would love a more fashionable bag but I have not found one that combines style with practicality like this one.
