The Twillory Co Oldham Cotton Throw Blanket Review

via wayfair.com

Weekly Theme: Apartment Revamp

If you have a cool couch or chair in your living room, office or bedroom, a cool-looking comfy throw is a great way to make a room feel more homey. Not only does it look good, it comes in handy, mostly on sundays when you’re recovering a watching netflix, but also when you have people over who get cold easily. This throw from the Twillory Co is made from 100% cotton so it’s super soft, the open weave gives it a tone of texture, and won’t overheat whoever ends up underneath it. However it is dry clean only, and if you have a pet, this likely won’t be a good pick as claws and paws will easily pull some major threads.

Crafthouse Wooden Muddler Review

via williams-sonoma.com

via williams-sonoma.com

Weekly Theme: Cocktail Master

Another useful and necessary tool for any bar and cocktail master is a good muddler. While some have spikes on the bottom, and other are made of metal, the best kind of muddlers are made out of wood and flat on the end. The point of this is to not bruise the herbs and fruits while muddling. Bruising (as opposed to smashing) doesn’t release as many oils and can affect taste, so mash do’t bruise. In addition, always press and twist rather than jam down over and over, and always use a mixing tin, a pint glass, or other sturdy glass to avoid chipping and breaking anything while you’re making a drink.

What is the key accessory for any beach party outfit? The sunglasses obviously. These Knockaround sunnies are the perfect outdoor party accessory because they are made and priced to be out and about, accidentally dropped and lost. Don’t freak out when you’re about leave the beach and realize you can’t find your sunglasses. They weren’t expensive! You’ll be ok. But if you do keep them around, they are totally worth it: they’re polarized, and made from hardened plastic so they can take a decent beating before they’ll need to get replaced. So knock em around and then just get yourself some new ones.
