editor alexandra's picks: my favourite things
This weekend, we opened our team's purses, closets and cupboards and had them reveal the everyday items they love. Catch up on the entire series here, here and here.
Being pregnant and chasing an 18-month-old doesn’t leave me with much time to get dressed, let alone choose accessories. My Alden Rae is my “arm party” staple. I wear two, linked, and wrapped around my wrist eight times. $49 each, at Shut Up I Love This.
Children Inspire makes the cutest wall hangings, which are available in a multitude of languages. We just bought my son the Swedish alphabet poster ($30) and French farm animal wall cards ($22.) www.childreninspiredesign.com
We love and use the entire Weleda baby range, and their Calendula Weather Protection Cream is amazing for kid’s face and lips in the cold weather, especially when the skin around their nose gets all dry from being wiped all the time. I’ll be stealing some for cold winter walks and ski season. $15.99 at select markets.
My drink of choice is San Pellegrino’s Sparkling Fruit Beverages, basically adult fizzy pops. I hoard them in my storage room, and when guests are lucky, I’ll serve them. The Limonata is my favourite. San Pellegrino Sparkling Fruit Beverages available at most grocery stores.
How can I not use this opportunity to self-promote, and tell people about my favourite nightwear? This holiday season my husband, family, and I will all be sleeping well in The Sleep Shirt, my nightwear project. Simple, comfortable, and roomy, it’s the best way to sleep. $195-$210, www.thesleepshirt.com
