The Best Mouse Traps: Humane (& Not) — Annual Guide 2017

I’ve had my share of mousecapades and caught mice humanely and in grizzly ways (the worst are glue traps, though sometimes they become necessary). All are recorded here. However, I’ve always tried to start with humane mouse traps and had good luck. Here are my top picks gleaned from own experience. In addition, I’ve retained all the information from my old post, which had some really nice recommendations we felt were worth keeping on this eternal subject.

Lounge All Day: Our Favorite Bath Robes — Annual Guide 2017

It’s a quick, warm cover for the early mornings when I make tea and sit for an hour, and it’s indispensable after showering when one doesn’t need/want/can’t/care to get dressed right away. (далее…)

The Best Ergonomic Stools No Matter Your Budget — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

I recently made the switch to an adjustable standing desk in my office, and it has made a world of difference. That said, I soon realized that my regular desk chair just wasn’t going to cut it anymore. With a more active desk I needed a more active seating option — and it turns out that the medical community agrees. Active seating — specifically ergonomic stools — helps to strengthen core and back muscles, while allowing the spine to achieve its natural curve. The result is a healthier body and a mind that stays alert and awake at work. Today I’m testing out three ergonomic stools from all ends of the price spectrum: they are sure to keep you healthy without being an eyesore in your office. (далее…)

Lunch monotony is real and we know it all too well.

We Tried Out Some Favorite Pieces from the Novogratz Collection for Amazon — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

Hi everyone! I’m excited to be back in our studio this week for a feature that I’ve been waiting to share for the past few months. When I heard that my friends Bob and Cortney Novogratz would be launching an online boutique on Amazon, I was eager to check it out in person. Their team was kind enough to send over some of the pieces (including a blush sofa that could not match the blush walls of our new studio any more perfectly) and I’m excited to walk you all through it today.

The Toiletry Bag that Will Up Your Travel Game Like No Other — Maxwell’s Fantastic Find

A few weeks back, I received an email from Chris Livingston about his Kickstarter campaign for Gravel, a toiletry bag that he and his partner Lance designed. At first glance, it looked like a typical men’s Dopp Kit, but I started reading and realized that this is a total game changer when it comes to packing toiletries for travel. While most of us use plastic baggies or throw everything into a catch-all case, Gravel envisioned a better way. And it seems that people agree there’s a better way — Gravel hit their $12,000 funding goal within 8 hours of the campaign launch. Read on to check out how Gravel’s changing the way we pack and let me know what you think in the comments! (далее…)
