THE COFFEE TABLE MUST HAVE – Will Cotton: Paintings and Works on Paper The singularly beautiful first retrospective of Cotton’s work will take your breath away. Those eye-catching candy filled paintings of women in various states look as lush as ever. The coffee table keeper from Rizzoli is filled with inspiring and downright decadent imagery.
THE SCENT OF HEAVEN – Nest Blue Garden Diffuser Ever wonder what heaven smells like? Probably a bit like this richly scented hydrangea, hyacinth and forget-me-nots blend that quickly fills the room with an intoxicating aroma. We’ve long been fans of Nest’s elegant offerings (keep your eyes peeled for their collaboration with Jason Wu this Spring) but this might just be our favorite in the entire line.
MODEL WORTHY BEAUTY – Estee Lauder Daywear BB Cream The beauty blogosphere has been buzzing about BB creams for awhile now, but when we heard about the one that keeps Constance Jablonski looking flawless we had to try it. With lightweight coverage and a gentle feel the Estee BB falls somewhere between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation. The creamy texture and radiant finish left us thoroughly impressed.
FAST FASHION – Karl for Net-A-Porter Net-a-Porter understands that you can never have too much Karl Lagerfeld in your life. Where Karl goes, fashion follows and the crowds came out in full force for the launch of his eponymous line for NAP. Don’t worry you can still scoop up some things for yourself – who can resist with the affordable prices and impressively versatile designs.
THE JEWELRY STATEMENT – Maniamania We’ve been in love with all things Maniamania since their short film featuring Abbey Lee Kershaw opened our eyes to their edgy collection of mystically minded baubles. Created by Aussie fashion insiders Tamila Purvis and Melanie Kamsler, the line is filled with pieces that demand attention. We covet the timeless beauty of their smoky quartz ring, The Eternal.
THE MASSAGE MASTER – Koh Gen Do Macro Vintage Massage Royal Massage Milk We love products that do double duty- this gem from Japanese line Koh Gen Do can be used as a moisturizer, primer and facial massage cream. Added bonus, it feels like silk on the skin and smells divine.
THE NECKPIECE - Givenchy Floral Scarf It might be too early to predict the scarf of the season, but this is a strong candidate. It gives you just hint of the eclectic Tisci look and has yet to become as overexposed as those Rottweiler sweatshirts.
THE ARM CANDY - Balenciaga Timepiece Elegant, understated and off-kilter enough to be worthy of the Balenciaga name.
THE KIT & KABOODLE – Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Kits
As one of the most beloved brands on the market, Kiehl’s represents quality and innovation in all things skincare. Their Ultra-Facial range is beloved by dermatologists, beauty editors and anyone with a healthy appreciation of good skin. The overwhelming popularity of the line has led to the release of two brand new kits – The Ultra-Facial 3 Step & Ultra-Facial Oil Free, that provide an assortment of Kiehl’s goodies designed to cleanse, tone and moisturize all at a fraction of the price.
