Seeing an opportunity with the advent of new travel restrictions, Alexi and Katie decided to launch a Web Site only selling beauty products in travel sizes. With the catchy tagline “For those who travel, those who are curious and those who can’t commit,” 3FlOz.com offers dozens of brands for everyone from the casual customer to the hardcore product junkie. A bunch of products sold on their Site is featured in the April 2011 issue of Men’s Health, all recommended by fashion/grooming editor Brian Boye.

The new-school purveyor of timeless journalism, McSweeney’s launched their
special edition, 320-page “San Francisco Panorama” this week, making it the
latest of the literary journal’s quarterly releases.
The McSweeney’s team created the 15″ x 22″ broadsheet paper over five months
with contributions from Stephen King, William T. Vollmann, Daniel Clowes and
Roddy Doyle-over 150 writers, artists and photographers in all.
Panorama’s design mimics a traditional paper, with magazine, food (click
above image for detail), comics and sports sections included in the hefty
edition along with hang-ready posters. Eye-catching diagrams and an overall
contemporary layout give it a modern appeal.
San Francisco’s Chronicle partnered with McSweeney’s to exclusively sell and
distribute the paper in the Bay Area and starting yesterday locals can buy
it for $5 from hawkers in the street. The rest of us can buy it online for
$16 or in bookstores. Check out sample pages, and get all the details here.
