Our Selections Of The Week
Last week marked some new releases and news and it’s our tradition to look back at it and bring you at least some of them. Make sure you don’t miss out on anything with Our Selections Of The Week segment.
1 – Tepui SkyCamp Tents
Rooftop camping isn’t just for those who have a vehicle. Each SkyCamp Tent from Tepui comes with a wooden structure for mounting the tent and a built-in bench at the bottom. The area below the tent is great for keeping yourself protected from elements and enjoying a meal (don’t forget to pack mosquito repellent). Tents come in different sizes and a wooden ladder.

2 – Breville Oracle Touch Coffee Maker
The main features of this coffee machine are those elements that make a perfect cup – automatic grinding, tamping, and dosing. Breville Oracle Touch also comes with porta-filter, low-pressure pre-infusion and precise temperature control. Coffee has a smooth silky foam and is ready in less than a minute. The touchscreen on the front is easy to use and allows you to make a cup according to your taste by choosing the coffee strength, milk texture, and temperature. Once you master a particular taste, the machine can remember it so you have the same coffee each time (it can memorize up to 8 specs).

3 – Ali: A Life
Jonathan Eig, a New York Times best-selling author, made the ultimate biography of Muhammad Ali, the most famous heavyweight boxer on the planet. The author had access to some of the most influential people in Ali’s life (his managers and three wives). The idea behind Ali: A Life was to tell Ali’s story that was never available in that form and in the complexity he deserves. While writing it, Eig conducted over 500 interviews. The most interesting part, he uncovered thousands of pages of FBI and Justice Department documents that were never seen before.

Thanks to the lightweight PrimaLoft fill, you can easily pack this hoodie wherever you decide to go. The fact that it’s so compressible makes it its main feature. The hoodie is made from nylon ripstop material and comes with a hood and two side zippered hand pockets. The oversized zipper full-front closure allows you to wear more layers underneath it and keep the warmth from leaving your body. Just like the rest of their products, Puffer Hoodie comes with a lifetime guarantee. Available in different color combinations.

We learned about New Frontier Tiny Homes when we covered their Alpha house and now it’s time to present their newest design. Escher Tiny House is mounted on a 33ft long triple-axle trailer and is bigger than the Alpha model. The 300-square-foot area comes equipped with luxury amenities and fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. The house has a recognizable style – wooden floors and exterior with large sliding glass doors. Inside, you can pull out a table and sit up to 12 people. Not to forget the master bed, a walk-in closet, loft bedroom for kids and a convertible office space.
