I’ve been overcome with color inspiration lately and LOÉIL‘s holiday collection has me over the rainbow. The pink shearling jacket, bright green angora sweater, vivid blue tartan scarf and teal pleated skirt have me rethinking my otherwise monochrome winter wardrobe. I’ve also been reminded of my love of the color camel and its ability to perfectly contrast against the hottest of hues. It’s all just so, so good. And affordable.
In this digital age, nothing is more important than having the right gadgets for your home. This is especially important when your work relies entirely on technology to assist with productivity and efficiency. As someone who runs a business from home, I can absolutely vouch for these gift ideas for the work-from-home techie. One of the products I can’t praise enough is NETGEAR’s Orbi RBK50, a wi-fi system that covers up to 5,000 square feet. After switching service providers earlier this year, we struggled with intermittent and slow internet connections in certain parts of our house – specifically upstairs and in the backyard. You can imagine how frustrating it is when your internet fails the speed test time and time again. It was Orbi’s Whole Home WiFi system that brought us back to high speed, along with huge sighs of relief. It’s a must have.
If you’re ever planning a trip to Paris, bookmark this rental. Even if you don’t have impending plans to visit Paris, bookmark this rental. Located in heart of St Germain, nestled in the hustle and bustle of the 6th Arrondissement, this 3 bedroom apartment is an absolute Parisian dream. It’s owned by American Ashley Maddox, the founder of Where I’d Stay, an agency specializing in renting high-end holiday homes and apartments in other cities like Cape Town. I love the vibrant colors and whimsical details – and at 1,500 square feet, it’s a total score.
Honestly, YES. How incredible are these earrings from goldsmith and jewelry designer Jessica Winzelberg?! Each unique pair is cut from natural stones like Aventurine, Pyrite, Jade, Lapis, Jasper and Malachite and joined by fine, 14k gold connectors. What’s most impressive is her knack for stunning color compositions. They’re so visually commanding, it’s no wonder Ulla Johnson styled her 2018 resort collection with Jessica’s danglers! Need . . .
I have a weakness for outerwear. I’m a firm believer that the right coat never goes out of style, which is why it’s my favorite winter investment. It’s just too bad that I live in a somewhat seasonless state. But if you’re in the market for a new piece to build your seasonal outfit around, Frankie Shop is killing the outerwear game right now. Teddy bear, contrast color, shearling, denim, reversible . . . there’s something for everyone, in every color.
