There are just a handful of days left to grab a unique item that will provide a little homey comfort in your hotel room—a limited edition travel candle.

Creators Jasen and Allison Bowes love collecting unique décor and useful objects during their travels, but what they discovered led them to create their own company. They learned that every object has a unique story and that friends and family often told them, “I would have paid you to bring one of those back for me.”

They put their heads together and conceived Elsewhere—a business that offers limited runs of unique items. Right now, if you head over to their website, you’ll find a travel candle they produced in collaboration with Norden and Hajime Imura.

They contracted Imura, a ceramic artist in Japan to create reusable sake vessels and then Norden pours the soy candle inside. The candle arrives packaged in a 50mm camera lens bag made out of vintage Japanese Boro fabric and leather. Only 80 candles have been produced. The price is $100.

“I met the ceramics maker in Japan,” said Jasen. “He’s retired and pouring himself in the art.”

Once the candle burns down, the cup can be reused.

They tell the story of each item on their website and release a new object for sale every 60 to 75 days. They find vintage and new items as they travel and work with artists to produce limited edition products for Elsewhere. “We build an object on the road when, where, and how we travel. It’s part of the inspiration we get from the place,” said Jasen.

Allison runs and owns a fashion showroom on the west coast, and Jasen’s background involves consulting with brands to help on sales and marketing strategy. He last worked for Levi’s.

“We’ve worked alongside designers for the past 20 years,” he said. “We knew how to put things in the market that people will like.”

Apple Maps update press release photo

Google Maps has long been a dominant player in navigation, known for its comprehensive data and ease of use. However, with the release of iOS 17, Apple has introduced a game-changing feature that's set to make Apple Maps the go-to choice for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers. Apple is finally introducing offline maps, and it's a feature that will revolutionize the way hikers, campers, skiers, and snowboarders navigate the great outdoors.
iOS 17 unveils offline maps for Apple Maps
Apple Maps has come a long way since its initial launch, and it's continually striving to offer users a more robust and feature-rich experience. With the launch of iOS 17 on September 18, 2023, Apple is introducing offline maps, a feature that will be a game-changer for those who love outdoor activities.

Offline maps allow users to select specific areas to download to their phones. Once downloaded, these maps can be accessed and used without an internet connection. This makes it possible to enjoy turn-by-turn navigation and conduct searches even in remote areas where internet connectivity may be unreliable or nonexistent. It works similarly to Google Maps in the sense that you do need a WiFi connection to download the maps, but after that, you're good to go off the grid.
The perfect companion for outdoor adventures
For outdoor enthusiasts, this feature is a dream come true. Whether you're hiking in the wilderness, camping in a remote location, skiing down the slopes, or snowboarding in the mountains, having access to offline maps can be a lifesaver. Here's how this feature can benefit different adventure seekers:

If you were to look up the word "superstar" in the dictionary, it wouldn't be surprising if Brad Pitt's visage was strewn across the page. When you hear his name, it’s hard not to think of his chiseled abs, effortless charm, and distinctively beautiful face. Many may even immediately think of all the media surrounding his romantic entanglements with Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, but we’re definitely not here to talk about that.

Today, we are here to talk about the many strides Brad Pitt has made in his film career; from war movies to heist comedies, he's taken his physical beauty and made the most of it.

Clearly, there is much more to him than just what meets the eye, which is part of what makes him such a compelling screen presence.
