1. Isabel Marant Sumac
I’ve found my perfect spring jacket! Initially I was a little bit hesitant about the style, but the fit is beautiful. I ordered a size up as recommended by others and it’s perfect – still fitted but loose enough to layer over a light sweater. The jacket is also available in red and blue, but I went with the “safer” option of black to match more of my wardrobe. If you’re interested in the black, I recommend calling the SOHO boutique (212-219-2284) as that’s the only place I found it still available.
2. Tibetan Shawl
So warm, so soft, so cozy…ahhh. There’s a shop in Laguna Beach called Tibet Handicrafts that sells very unique merchandise from Tibet, Nepal, India, and Himilaya. My mom and I were there visiting the owner, and I snatched up this incredibly soft shawl made of yak wool. I have to say it’s the softest and warmest shawl/scarf I own.
3. The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte
It is exactly that. A guide to finding and mapping out your core desires and feelings to live the life you really want. I’m not finished yet, but I’m loving it so far. Danielle is a life-changer. You can find out more about her and her work here.
4. Fresh Flowers
I feel like bathrooms are usually the most ignored in terms of home decor, so I decided to change mine up with some fresh flowers. What a difference it makes! To brighten up your bathroom, pick up some of your favorite flowers or plants and place them wherever they fit well. Make sure it’s out of the way so you don’t knock it over during your face-washings and teeth-brushings. For mine, I used Million Star (baby’s breath) and put them in a mason jar with a black bow to tie it all together.
5. Zojirushi Thermos
This is by far the best brand for thermoses. My hot drinks have stayed hot for at least 8 hours and warm after 12. I have one that holds about 4 cups, and got another smaller one (480ml) today to take with me on the go. This model features a locking mechanism to prevent accidental opening, making this very handbag friendly. ;)
That’s it for this week! I apologize for the lack of posts lately (again), my motivation and time management have been way off. Time to get back on the horse. I finally got a new layout so pictures and posts should be loading much faster than before. I’m planning some DIY and outfit posts this week so stay tuned! In the meantime, tell me something that has made you happy this week in the comments below.
