  • Mental Floss Magazine


    Awhile ago, we linked to the Mental Floss book, saying that the Mental Floss team makes “art, literature, and science accessible without being condescending.” The magazine is the same thing, but you get it every two months. Fun reading for smart people, and we do love smart people.

  • Superhero Long Sleeve Tee


    She may look like a mild-mannered citizen to everyone else, but to you, she’s a hero. San Francisco designer Andrea Scher is a friend of mine, so I’m predisposed to adore her long-sleeve tees, which come in brown, black, orange, and white.

Prepare yourself for weeks of, “Honey, come check this out!” First published in 1665, Atlas Maior was created by renowned cartographer Joan Blaeu, and is considered the most comprehensive baroque atlas. It covers Arctica, Europe, Africa, Asia, and America, and stands as a master work in mapmaking.

  • Samsonite Silhouette Transport Tote


    ON SALE What I like best about this compact carry-on is how the top flap opens to completely expose its contents, and has a plastic toiletries bag built in to its underside, so your shampoo won’t leak all over your sweater. Aside from the main pocket, it has two smaller pockets on either end, and a larger side pocket for your cell phone, pens and whatnot. Enough room to comfortably pack a change of clothes, your essentials, your valuables, and a toothbrush. So you won’t feel quite so at sea when your luggage is lost. Also comes in black.

  • Verbena Eau de Toilette


    This is my everyday perfume because it wakes me up after a morning shower, but fades quickly, leaving the after scent on my clothes. It smells the way your hands would smell after peeling a lemon, but without the sharp edge. Like tart lemon icing while it’s still warm, just before you pour it over the pound cake.
