Working from home can be the best thing on earth or it can make you gain weight and unproductive. I am one of those lucky ones who owns a small business that allows me to work from home or basically anywhere I like. There was a time when I wasn’t able to balance my time, then I discovered an old school way to keep my work schedule on track, and that is to have an agenda. I like Lilly Pulitzer’s agendas because the page designs are really fun and the week day spaces are spacious. Having a pretty agenda design really inspires me every time I use it. I even keep it interesting with a bunch of stickers.
2. Asos: Felt Fedora Hat
Winter in New York can be quite unpredictable. This year has been surprisingly warm, usually it would be snowing already. Felt hats are useful in winter whether you’re living in London where there’s constant rain or New York where snow and occasional drizzling may come your way, where ever you live, it is always a great addition to complete your winter look. I got this hat on sale on Asos.com.
3. Hermés: Avalon Blanket
Muffin (my darling Russiblue mix) and I are big fans of this blanket. Since the day I brought this blanket home, she has been using it as her mattress. I on the other hand love to snuggle up on the sofa with this avalon blanket especially in winter.
4. Book: Dreaming of Dior by Charlotte Smith
A beautifully illustrated book about an enormous vintage couture collection that Smith inherited from her Quaker godmother who lived in the USA. This book tells the stories behind each vintage ensemble in a remarkable manner. I have it on my nightstand right now, I go through 5-6 stories before I go to sleep to keep me inspired.
5. Josie Maran: Bear Naked Wipes
Another fantastic skincare line I discovered in Sephora. I haven’t their other products beside the face wipes, but it has won over my heart. They donate a portion of their proceeds to the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Polar Bear SOS Initiative. It is cruelty-free, vegan, biodegradable and all-natural. I just can’t get over how amazing Josie Maran is! Can’t wait to try out their other Argan oil – based products.
