Leah Singh Pillows | The Power of Glamour (gifted) | On Perfume Making | Embellished Gloves | Embellished Hat
FOR HOME: I mean really, what’s not to love? Last week I was introduced to designer Leah Singh, who makes a beautiful collection of jewelry and most recently, pillows (with lots more designs coming soon!). As a fan of clean lines that also aren’t boring, I love her mix of eclectic colors with modern, geometric shapes. Buy in multiples if you wish, but if you only select one, fear not: each pillow makes a statement on its own!
FOR HEAD: Recently, I was sent a copy of The Power of Glamour, and have had a good time looking through it. Contrary to what one might assume by its cover, the book is actually not a series of glamorous photos, but an in depth look at what glamour really is and how we define it. It’s pretty interesting to read about! Secondly, I recently saw the new book Frédéric Malle: On Perfume Making in Nordstrom’s pop-up French shop and instantly added it to my new gift idea list for the holidays. I think learning about the inspiration and artistry behind perfume making is so fascinating!
FOR HEAT: Last weekend, we swung by Bloomingdale’s to stock up on cold weather gear. I think in nearly 30 years I can count the number of times I have seen snow on both hands (maybe even only one); suffice’s to say that I’m in dire need of cold weather accessories. But I approached the task with a sense of wonder and enthusiasm. I had no idea half of these accessories even existed (um, YES I need a metallic wool headband!), and had a great time selecting a new pair of gloves and some earmuffs (which I promptly wore to the park on Sunday and people looked at me like I was crazy). I still need to find a pair of lined leather gloves for when the weather really turns cold, and love the idea of a pair with a little embellishment, like these. Musings from an East Coast-winter virgin? Probably, but indulge me, ok?
