Good morning. This past weekend, Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched its first rocket into and beyond the atmosphere since the Cape Canaveral launch pad explosion in September. The Falcon 9 rocket carries 10 satellites for Virginia-based Iridium Communications. SpaceX’s ultimate goal is a manned mission to Mars, an endeavor that could eventually be funded by deploying communications satellites like these. Here’s what’s good in gear: a new flower delivery service, a 2004 Ford GT, a new cookbook and much more.
And here are some fresh stories to start the day.
BloomThat Flower Delivery Service
Sending flowers from your smartphone or computer should be easy. It isn’t. Prices suddenly jump when you add items to your cart, deals and delivery times are subject to numerous conditions, and the offerings are complicated and tacky. That’s a problem. BloomThat is here to make the process easier with easy ordering from your phone or computer (three clicks with the app) and reliable, same-day delivery in NYC and parts of California. With an array of beautifully arranged and packaged bundles, from an air plant framed in wood to their stunning Cora bouquet, you can’t make a bad choice, either.

Public Rec Politan Hoodie
Minimal and modern hoodies are making the sweatshirt an appropriate item to wear in more settings these days. Public Rec’s Politan Hoodie is made with a moss jersey fabric blend of polyester and spandex for a soft and stretchy feel and good breathability. The design includes a subtle V-neck and a hidden zipper pocket within the kangaroo pouch for loose valuables. The Politan comes in three colorways: Midnight Blue, Heather Black and Heather Silver Spoon.
At Auction: 2004 Ford GT Prototype CP-1
Make arrangements to bid at Russo and Steele’s upcoming auction and the Ford GT prototype could, theoretically, be yours. It’s the first fully functional prototype Ford built in advance of the homage supercar from a decade past, and it’s joined by plenty of other lust-worthy metal.

Parachute x The Citizenry Madera Lumbar Pillow
If you like your home decor beautiful, simple and socially conscious, Citizenry should be high on your list. They’ve teamed up with Parachute to offer a bed-spanning lumbar pillow in a very handsome gradient, and if you’re quick it can be yours. It’s made of 100 percent sheep wool and takes a 14-woman Zapotec cooperative in Oaxaca, Mexico three days to fashion.
Share: Delicious and Surprising Recipes to Pass Around Your Table
What’s the point of sweating it out over a hot stove if nobody else is going to enjoy your culinary creations? Family-style dining is “in” anyways. Share, the new cookbook by master chef and Chopped judge Chris Santos, presents a curated rumination on the shared dish. Dishes like crab corn dogs with Old Bay aioli and korean short rib tacos with classic kimchi will make you your friends’ favorite dinner host.
