Reader Request: Dish Towels

Reader Request: Dish Towels

Reader Request: What type of dish towels do you use, and how do you keep them fresh-smelling? Thank you for your question! A few years ago, after realizing the obscene amount of paper towels I used on a daily basis, I switched to using cloth dish towels for most general […]

Little Luxuries: Kate Spade Compact Mirror

Little Luxuries: Kate Spade Compact Mirror

Kate Spade Compact Mirror (available here and here) I really like the classic preppy quirkiness* of Kate Spade New York houseware¬†and gifts.

While I love beautiful¬†saturated nail color¬†including true reds, sometimes there’s nothing better than a great, low-maintenance, goes-perfectly-with-everything neutral shade.¬†My absolute faves right now are OPI San Tan-Tonio and Samoan Sand, two really clean, polished (no pun intended… well maybe a¬†little¬†pun intended), sophisticated neutral nail colors. Also, did you know that […]

Well, let me tell ya: Proper motivation tapped me on the shoulder and […]

NaturAlmond Handcrafted Almond Butter

NaturAlmond Hand Crafted Almond Butter¬†(widely available here and here) Let me begin by saying that while I’m on my second jar of this almond butter, I should be on my fourth… or fifth. It’s been out of stock at my usual grocery store for far too long! I jumped up […]

Closet Organization: Hangers

Closet Organization: Hangers

Although I love, love the look, functionality, and boutique-y-shop-my-closet-ness of wooden hangers, I’ve recently had to place my gazillion Ikea ones¬†into temporary retirement (i.e. a storage bin). Sadly, they just take up too much space in a closet the size of the one I share – equitably, I might add […]
