According to Lyn, this salad is pretty nice—
“Alex has a cousin that sometimes graces family gatherings a slaw-style broccoli salad I adore, with chunks of raw broccoli and dried cranberries and some toasted pine nuts or almonds, in a mayo-based dressing. Alex and I don’t agree on this — he of the oh so very difficult vegetables and sweet things cannot be paired persuasion and me of the can’t hear you, too busy cronch-cronch-cronching — thus I’d yet to give it a spin at home.”

“If you’re also kind of laid-back when it comes to your brows and you just want something simple and easy to use for filling them in and tidying up any stray hairs, Brow Power will be perfect for you. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel or anything (although it does contain anti-aging ingredients, which I guess my brows might appreciate one day?). Mostly, it’s reliable, easy to use, and great for people who are new to brow products or who like a slightly more natural brow look.”

I Don't Mean To Brag, But My Eyebrows Look Amazing | xoJane
“A few weeks ago I was in Sephora and stumbled upon Anastasia’s Brow Wiz pencil ($20, sephora.com). It was the skinniest brow pencil I had ever seen and it piqued my interest. I tested it out and immediately fell for it. Since the tip of the pencil is so thin, it allows you to draw featherlight strokes that resemble hairs, filling out your eyebrows in any over-plucked or sparse areas. With this pencil, I could completely reshape my barren looking brows. I was in love.”

An Ode to the Romance Novel (Feat. Lindsay Ellis) | It's Lit! - YouTube
(This is actually a pretty good recap of romance novels—including some recommendations for LGBT romance novels.)
“The romance novel has been the subject of intrigue, derision, and shame in literary discourse long before the modern genre as we know it today existed. Romance novels are relegated to your Aunt Muriel’s bathroom, thrift store book sections, and that one aisle in Barnes and Noble that you pretend to walk through because you got ‘lost’ looking for cookbooks. But it deserves a closer look than that - it is after all the highest grossing of all literary genres, out-selling its next nearest competitor twice over.”

12 New Radler Beers You’ll Actually Want to Drink | Food & Wine
“What’s a radler? Close cousin to the shandy (a style then tends be a bit more beer-forward and higher in alcohol), radlers are traditionally an equal mixture of lager and carbonated citrus soda, and typically clock in somewhere near 3.0% ABV. The word radler is German for ‘cyclist.’ And the style’s origin story holds that, back in the 1920s, a Munich barman named Franz Kugler was struggling to serve all the bikers stopping into his place for a mid-ride beer. Kugler started mixing lager with lemon soda in order to keep pace with demand, and the radler was born.

“Whether or not that story is true, radlers have long been popular in Germany and Austria. (Stiegl’s Grapefruit Radler is the archetype of the style.) And every summer seems to bring a wave of new craft radlers here in the U.S. But while some are delicious, many can be overly tart or saccharine. Here are 12 good ones to try this summer.”

Tea Sachets Exist – Marco.org
“Sachets strike a remarkable balance of quality and convenience. To me, they taste just as good as loose tea. And there’s no measuring, dispensing, or cleanup. It’s the tea version of the promise of coffee pods, but it actually delivers on that promise because good tea is so much easier to brew than good coffee.

“When they’re individually wrapped, like the one pictured above, they’re even more convenient. Not only do they retain their flavor for a long time, but they’re great for travel: you can bring a couple on a plane or pack a handful for the hotel and have great tea in restricted conditions with zero equipment, as long as you have some ability to make or request a cup of hot water.

Metal Prints, Personalized Metal Art | Costco Photo Center
From Recommendo—
“Everyone is now a photographer and our audience is on the small screen. But there’s a real joy in seeing a large image on a wall. The best way to do that is via the Metal Print from Costco Photo. You send a digital file to the online Costco and then you pick up the piece at your local store. Your image is printed in gorgeous quality on a thick piece of aluminum sheet so that it is perfectly 100% flat and glossy – much flatter than can be done by framing. No glass or plastic cover required, which makes this style very light weight even for big pieces. And since it is frameless, hung with an internal French cleat, it is cheap. A huge 24 x 36 inch picture, printed and ready to hang in your room, or gallery, is $120. A large 11 x 14 is only $34. These show pieces really wow; even a decent shot from a new phone will work. — KK”

(Looks like David Barnard is quite a fan of Nocs’ NS2 Air Monitors. And while those do support AirPlay, they don’t seem to be available as of February 2018.)

"I haven’t listened to the Sonos One, Google Home Max, or other similar speakers. But to my ears the $400 @nocssthlm NS2 Air Monitors blow away the HomePod. The bass doesn’t go as deep, but it’s tight and accurate, mids are clean-ish, 4k-8k is pleasant and cleans up vocals."

Review: CalDigit TS3 Plus is the new king of Thunderbolt docks
"Ports are what can make or break a docking station. I don’t think CalDigit will disappoint in that regard with its dizzying array of fifteen ports. The important ones include five USB Type-A ports (for all your older peripherals), a new SD card slot out the front, digital optical audio output for superior audio quality and (for the first time in a Thunderbolt 3 dock) a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 port capable of up to 10GBps transfer speed."

Permute - Media Converter for macOS - Charlie Monroe Software
"Video, audio and image files come in many different kinds and shapes, but sometimes you need a specific format since your iPad or DVD player won't play that video. That is what Permute is for - easily convert your media files to various different formats.”

As Brett Terpstra put it:
"I use a variety of video conversion apps, most based on ffmpeg, which I also use from the command line. Among these, Permute has become my app of choice for quickly converting both video and audio files without a lot of fuss.”

Track Hyper-Local Weather Conditions With the Netamo Weather Station – MacStories
“I’ve been very pleased with the Netatmo Weather Station since I started using it almost two months ago. It may be unnecessary, but I enjoy knowing that the weather conditions I’m seeing in the app are what’s happening immediately outside my back door. It’s also been interesting to observe trends in the data I’ve collected, like rising CO2 levels when we are cooking dinner or dropping humidity levels during the recent cold weather in Chicago, which alerted me to the fact that the humidifier on my furnace has died. I’ve also been pleasantly surprised by the quality of its companion app. If you want up to the minute, hyper-local weather data or enjoy collecting and pouring over weather data, I highly recommend the Netatmo Weather station."

Ink Review #75: Organics Studio Nitrogen Royal Blue — Mountain of Ink
"I'm in love with this ink. The sheen is gorgeous, and while the ink does take a long time to dry, I think the crazy sheen is worth a few more seconds of dry time. I'm glad I have a full bottle of this one, because I know it's one I will be using a lot.”

Space Heater Recommendation? - spaceheater homeoffice | Ask MetaFilter
"I'm fortunate enough to work from home these days, but my home office is not terribly warm and, since I'm in an old apartment building, I don't have access to the heat controls myself. I'm looking for recommendations for a good space heater to heat a room that's about 110ft square with 9ish-foot ceilings."
