Caffeinated Links: Candles, Novels, and Grand Theft Auto


Est Magazine, one of my favorite curators of design and lifestyle products and content from all over the world, released a “Tiny Things” edition, which included this list of the world’s top 10 covetable candles. I drool, especially over the Jo Malone Grapefruit.

The New York Times beautifully reviews Jhumpa Lahiri’s new novel – “Jhumpa Lahiri first made her name with quiet, meticulously observed stories about Indian immigrants trying to adjust to new lives in the United States, stories that had the hushed intimacy of chamber music. The premise of her new novel, “The Lowland,” in contrast, is startlingly operatic.”

Grand Theft Auto V has been making massive amounts of money. “Given the massive sums of currency changing hands (seriously think about it, where do you PUT $800 million dollars? Like, which banks even DO that sort of thing?) it should surprise no one to state that gaming is an entertainment industry set to eclipse the old vanguard of film.” RT Pajiba

Sir Patrick Stewart got married to his lady love presided over by Sir Ian McKellan and then he and his bride jumped in a ball-pit. It’s pretty much the greatest thing ever. RT Pajiba

Did You See? Is it She?

Beauty and the Beast references aside, have you read Est Magazine’s latest issue? I spotlighted Est here on the blog when they first debuted a few months back, and they still remain one of my favorite design publications.

Check out some photos from the Ferm Living Spring-Summer 2013 collection they featured recently.


And as a bonus, the Sarah Lavoine shoot is interesting but too austere for my tastes. I do love the unexpected pops of yellow, however.
