The Weekend Guide

betabrand shopping bag!

This caterpillar of a week is about to become a bea-u-ti-ful butterfly.

Betabrand Cornucopia Bag
What: A ginormous backpack ($120) designed specifically for locavore shoppers and farmers market frequenters. The bulk makes you look less snobby while keeping your gourd bread, wild herb honey, and farm-laid eggs separated.
Why: Pack it up; pack it in; let the feasting begin.
Where: Online at betabrand.com.

Inside the Fridge of a DailyCandy Editor
Inspired by a San Fran exhibit, we’re revealing the contents of our refrigerators. It’s like looking into our souls, er, stomachs.
Why: After mocking ours, please post a picture of yours.
When: Now.
Where: Online at facebook.com.

Kiel Mead Jewelry

What: Brooklyn-based Mead has stayed busy these last few years casting routine objects in silver and gold (tied string Forget Me Not rings, retainer and phone jack necklaces). Thankfully, he found some time to launch an e-commerce site.
Why: We’re still smitten with his witty charms.
Where: Online at kielmead.com.

The Museum of Animal Perspectives

What: Remote-sensing critter cams the world over pooled and mapped for your viewing pleasure. You want cute? Check the burrowing black-tailed prairie dog and nesting hummingbird.
Why: The zoo is too hot this time of year, plus wildlife reminds us of that sexy beast Jeff Corwin.

Lovely People Sale

What: There’s no place like an entire website of strappy flats and retro party shoes at 30 percent off (including sale items), so click your new heels and your mouse.
Why: No one can tell us discount shopping isn’t a sport; use code DCDEAL30 to prove it.
Where: Online at lovelypeople-usa.com.

You Lost Me There

What: For his hyped debut novel ($17), Rosecrans Baldwin (name of the month) goes deep into the scientific mind and seemingly faulty memories of a middle-aged grieving widower.
Why: A light surface and oddball cast keep things insightful and easy enough for a bell lap summer read.
Where: Online at amazon.com.
