I was a backer to their Kickstarter several years ago. I received the shorts probably 4-5 years ago and I still wear them. Probably almost too much. My wife hates them because I wear them all the time and after 4-5 years (YEARS) of continual use, they are still going strong.

I suspect they will give out in some form or Read more

On the upper end of the prices shown here, but Mizzen & Main shirts are amazing. Keep you looking cool even at an outdoor wedding in the dead of summer and you can just hang them up to dry. I recently tried some Twillory Performance shirts and agree they are good for the price, but the M&M’s fabric feels a step higher.

And if you’re a frequent enough traveler to/from airports that have a Centurion Lounge, those things are by far some of the best lounges around (especially domestically, where the options are typically sparse, outside of expensive airline-specific lounges).

I have both, and around the time of renewal I call up Amex and Chase, threatening to leave one for the other, and they usually knock off a couple hundred bucks or give me 100,000 points to stay. The Chase travel credit is almost TOO easy to use, while in a year where I didn’t travel much the Amex travel credit almost Read more

Chase Freedom Unlimited. 1.5% cash back on everything, no annual fee. Couple with Chase Freedom, which also has no annual fee and rotating quarterly categories of 5% back on $1500 spend, you can save some cash. Bam! Easy peasy.

One often overlooked perk of the Amex Platinum & Plat Business is access to their International Airline Program. They have 24 partner airlines (all non-US, but partners of the 3 alliances) where you can score discounts on premium economy, business & first class seats. You have to call to book and there is a booking Read more

I fucking love Anker and Aukey. I have 3 Aukey car battery jumper packs (I had two, then after I bought my truck, I had to get a more powerful one that would start it) and my de facto radio in my truck is an Aukey bluetooth speaker because the aux jack on my head unit is fucked up. And so many Anker USB cables.

Not knowing anything else, my guess would be beeswax. After years of lip balm use I started having problems with peeling skin. I’m not 100% sure but it seems to be a sensitivity to beeswax. It’s a bummer because beeswax shows up in tons of the fancier balms. I’ve gone back to plain old cherry chapstick and the problem Read more

So after a lifetime of lip balm use, a couple years ago I started getting a weird flat spot on my lip after a few days of using it in a row. It feels like a tiny piece of tape is on my lip, and it is dry to the touch but isn’t really visible. Eventually the dry patch just peels off. Read more

Am I the only one who finds those coloured Burts Bees ones slide the colour out of my lipline?

I have no idea what chapstick uses to scent their original chapstick but I love the smell of it and forgo better formulas to use it.
