I’m a huge fan of Kobo’s soy candle fragrances. Intense but never overpowering, these full-bodied scents smell divine and burn forever. Plus, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous, which never hurts.
MOLTON BROWN HAND CREAM + CUSTOM INFUSION DROPS
I discovered Molton Brown products staying in London a couple of years ago and it quickly became my favorite hand lotion. Amazing scents and incredible quality, it hydrates your skin without leaving your hands greasy. I’ll add Custom Enhancer drops when my hands are feeling extra dry.
A self-proclaimed caffeine addict, I’m rarely found without a cup of coffee. My latest obsession: Mud Australia’s handmade porcelain mugs with matte exterior and glazed interior. They’re truly unique and totally gorgeous.
STERLING SILVER CIGARETTE CASE
I’ve kept this sterling silver cigarette case on my desk for years. It was a wedding gift to my mom and dad, which obviously makes it special to me, but it also reminds me of old-Hollywood glamour, which I love.
iPAD MINI + LOUIS VUITTON AGENDA
I like to think of myself as somewhat tech savvy. Like most everyone else in the world, I’ve become reliant on my devices to keep me connected. And while my iPad Mini has replaced most everything else in my life, I refuse to give up my Louis Vuitton planner. There’s just something to be said for having a hard copy of your week’s agenda right there in front of you.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve surrounded myself with fresh flowers. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but the smell alone inspires me. Having a beautiful arrangement of tulips, peonies or hydrangeas nearby brings a smile to my face. It’s a simple pleasure, but a treat I tend to enjoy on a regular basis—wherever and whenever possible.
