The change of seasons — or the dream thereof — always brings forth a change in routines. Spring, in particular, is a season I welcome with open arms especially after a really terrible winter we’ve been having in Toronto. And even though I am on a permanent low buy, especially after getting my holiday bills, that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to make a wishlist, does it?
- Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne ($130 at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom). Ever since a David’s Tea opened around the corner from work, I’ve been turning into a tea-aholic. I never thought that a tea-inspired scent would be my everyday go-to fragrance. I’m working on a teeny vial of this cologne and I am in love. The bergamot and cucumber are a match made in Jo Malone heaven.
- Diptyque Baies Candle ($66 at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom). When I was shopping with my friend Rema for my first candle, I thought I’d fall in love with the classic Baies right away. But I didn’t. Last Christmas, while perusing for a birthday present for myself, I sniffed Baies again and I’m glad I did. The fresh roses and green blackcurrant leaves notes make this perfect to burn in the spring and summer months to come.
- BaByliss Pro Professional Porcelain Ceramic Curling Iron ($55 at Folica). I’ve been trying to get the messy bob a la Alexa Chung, but my curling irons have barrels that are too small for the look. This curling iron comes in a 1.25-inch barrel, which is perfect for the cool texture I’m after.
- NARS Love Blush ($33 at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom) and Descanso Satin Lip Pencil ($30 at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom). NARS’ small and pretty pink collection has me swooning! Who knew? These two are the ones that caught my eye because they have rosy brown undertones that compliment my warm complexion well.
