Intimo Secretary Desk

Well, doesn't this look promising? Compact desks are rather hard to find nowadays, so it's refreshing to see one with a minimal design aesthetic that's affordable. Plus, how lovely would it be just to close it all up once you're done with your email/work? No tidying necessary, just close the hinge and you'll not need to stare at your laptop and other miscellany. There's a small storage shelf along ...Read more

Chemex Coffeemaker with Filters

Flash sale sites are feeling a little old nowadays, but it's nice to see there's still a few tempting deals at wallet-pleasing prices. Gilt has a slight sale on the Chemex Coffeemaker along with 100 Prefolded Chemex Filter Squares. In my opinion, coffee from this thing actually tastes better than coffee from a machine, and it makes you feel a little like a chemist doing experiments with life-saving liquids (which, with ...Read more

The Arctic Trench by Aether Apparel

The following post is sponsored by Aether Apparel. Take a walk in downtown Manhattan in the middle of January and you'll see a few trends in women's fashion -most notably, the full-length insulated parka. When it's freezing cold outside, women dress for the occasion. But while the typical quilted parka does a wonderful job of keeping you warm, it's not exactly the most flattering of options. Too frequently women are ...Read more
