WATCH | THE POWER OF THE DOG
Set in 1920s Montana, The Power of the Dog has the look of a western but lies much more in the drama category. A story about a cold and sometimes cruel brother (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), it portrays a family's turmoil and inability to live freely under his thumb. Stunning cinematography and a powerful cast (Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons) make the brooding film worth the watch.
WEAR | THE SEAWELL COLLECTION
There are some designs that are classics, cycling through our closet throughout the years but always a wardrobe staple. A fisherman sweater is definitely one for us, and this collection from Long Wharf Supply Co. was made to last in your closet and not to be replaced. Created from recycled materials and soft, natural lambswool, their goal is to cut down on materials we waste and it shows in the longevity of these designs. Available in mens and womens sizes along with multiple colors and styles, it's harder not to find one you love or that would make a perfect gift.
VISIT | ODDWOOD ALES
Fans of hoppy ales, lagers, and sour beers should drop into Oddwood here in Austin. A brewery off of Manor Rd., they offer a wide selection for beer lovers and knowledgeable staff for the casual sipper. With a dog-friendly patio and arcade, you can also grab a bite to eat while you hang out. Their Bolognese pizza? Well worth the trip all on its own.

READ | SPOOK
Although maybe a more fitting book for Halloween, we just got around to reading this book by Mary Roach. Taking a scientific look at ideas of the afterlife, her humor and witty writing adds so much to a subject that at times can even be downright confusing, like when she sits down with quantum theorists to talk about the soul. An odd one to be caught laughing outloud to, her curiosity was contagious and made this an easy book to devour.
LISTEN | DANDELION - ILL PEACH
Two incredibly talented artists (whose work includes collaborations with Icona Pop, Pharrell Williams and SZA), came together to form the band ill peach. Their newest song, DANDELION, is entrancing, eclectic, and downright catchy. Described as “gritty pop," we had this new single show up on our Spotify and were immedidately pulled in by it sound. Give it a listen.

DRINK | L'ONESTA LAMBRUSCO DI SORBARA
Lambruscos have been one of our favorite new kinds of wine to explore this past year, and we recently discovered this bottle of sparkling red. Light and even a bit tart, it leans towards a more cherry or cranberry flavor and is perfect chilled. A great addition to any upcoming holiday parties or perfect for a quiet dinner at home, fans of bubbly would be missing out by not pouring themselves a glass.
