Artist Phillip K Smith III ventured to the California high desert, right outside Joshua Tree to create an optical illusion via mirrors on a 70 year old wood residence. He added mirrors to the walls of this desert shack to create the illusion that you can see right through the building. The door and windows of the building are fitted with mirrors that transform into brightly colored rectangles that slightly change color after dark.

Filson partnered with Detroit-based Shinola on a super sweet little bicycle called The Bixby. Both companies have strong histories of American manufacturing, making it a perfect fit. The Filson x Shinola Bixby bicycle is Shinola’s interpretation of a 3-speed bicycle for urban adventurers and commuters. The lightweight steel frames and forks are hand-crafted in Wisconsin, by Waterford Precision Cycles and the bicycles are fully assembled in Detroit, in Shinola’s small-scale assembly facility.
 
The Filson Green bike features stylish bamboo fenders and the special Portland Design Works rear rack with bamboo deck, featuring a custom laser-etched Filson logo. Filson also worked with Shinola on the Tin Cloth bags for the front and rear racks and the front can easily be taken with you as a carry-all for your shopping. Purchase one of these bicycles here. This could be the best holiday gift ever.

During the holidays we all tend to get busy with loads of festivities that include extra calories and leave us short on time for our workouts. To avoid a weight gain this December and the inevitable New Year’s resolution to undo the damage, we’ve got some simple barre3 workouts (a combination of Pilates, barre and yoga) you can do at home, courtesy of our friends Lauren and Giselle, owners of barre3 UTC La Jolla. If you’re in San Diego, find their studio here and let them kick your butt in person! If you’re anywhere else in the U.S. or Phillipines, find a barre3 studio here.
 
As extra incentive, barre3 is giving away a month of barre3 Online Workouts and their signature core ball to not ONE but THREE winners! Leave a comment below with your best tip for staying fit during the holidays and see the box below for extra ways to enter. Now that you’re motivated, the at-home workouts are after the jump!
