People of faith often find it hard to express themselves through fashion and still stay on trend. That’s why Chicago area entrepreneur Jennie Cornell got together with her friends Kristen Christiansen and Ali Dacy to create Gods Graffiti, a graphic t-shirt company designed to inspire. “It seemed like there was a lack of merchandise that connected people to faith,” Cornell says, explaining that they created a line of t-shirts that encourage “kindness, love, peace, light, forgiveness, prayer, and faith.” Every sale gives 10 percent back to a local charity such as Center for Missing and Exploited Children and Chosen and Dearly Loved, a charity that helps aid families adopting children with special needs.

Just in time for end-of-summer celebrations, the creators of the best-selling single-malt Scotch whiskey, Glenfiddich, introduce their Experimental Series. Traditionally matured in rum, whiskey, and sherry casks depending on the flavor profile, Glenfiddich released the first Scotch whiskey finished in casks infused with the flavors of India Pale Ale beer in June. The resulting Glenfiddich India Pale Ale Experiment has caramel-like top notes and a gentle hoppy richness, almost a bridge between Scotch and bourbon. Then, inviting 20 single-malt Scotch experts from all over the world to sample their stores and choose their favorite barrels, Glenfiddich created Project XX, a delicious combination of all of barrels in one distinctive bottle. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience the grand experiment. For details, visit glenfiddich.com
