J.McLaughlin Sailcloth Dopp Kit in Navy/Orange with my monogram in Hot Pink
Hot Tip: Dopp Kits aren’t exclusively for toiletries. I use mine daily—sunglasses, eyeglasses, hand lotion, J.McLaughlin face mask, sunscreen, a spare Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, house keys, car keys. The interior pockets keep everything nicely organized; I never lose anything (touch wood).
I drink one first thing every morning— it's dehydrated greens that you dissolve in a glass of water. A good portion of your day's worth of vegetables, vitamins, and nutrients in a single glass? Sign me up.
EltaMD UV SPF 46
The greatest facial sunscreen EVER. I have very sensitive skin and I have had zero reactions. It also has a nice, neutral fragrance and is not greasy.
Listen...nothing beats reading, holding, flipping through, dog-earing a physical book. With that said, I transitioned to a Kindle a few years ago. Commuting and traveling with a Kindle is so much more convenient, not to mention every book is available at your fingertips. Paper books feel like such a luxury these days, so I sneak one in every now and then.
I have the hardest time dressing a coffee table; I can never seem to get it right. It’s either a wonky set of objects, or the scale of the books are off, or SOMETHING. I can’t put my finger on it, but when you know, you KNOW. I’ve read every ELLE DÉCOR and AD for decades—the problem obviously lays within. HELP!
TSF Jazz App. Every time I get into the car after landing in Paris, I ask the driver to turn on the TSF Jazz radio station. It’s the local Jazz radio station-- THE BEST. I discovered they have an app a few years ago, which is a total game-changer. It’s French Jazz and instantly transports you to another world—think the soundtrack of a Nancy Myers movie set in Provence! It’s absolutely perfect and transportive.
