We’re all over the place this week; some of us want Iceland — if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em — others are jonesing for the feeling of toes in the sand, and then there are the more reasonable members of the team who are helping us find the perfect balm for chapped lips or something to decorate away the winter doldrums.
We’re an inclusive bunch and we’d love to showcase what you crush and covet, so leave a comment or send us something grand or small, easily found or hard to track down, and we’ll choose our favourite for an upcoming issue!
Kelli Catana: “Just look at the Kate Spade New York Daisy Place Vase. This beautiful vase reads ‘“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck, with freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” I love the message of this vase, and I love that I’d leave it out on my desk all the time and just sit and wait for it to be filled, but even if it were empty I’d love it just as much because it’s so pretty.”
Kelly Williams: “A couple of years ago my husband bought me this Visconti bag to carry all my tech when I’m traveling. I love this bag a little more every time I use it. I have the brown oiled leather one and it is gorgeous. There are pockets a-plenty for an iPad, a small laptop, cords, a phone, and more. It’s functional and pretty. What could be better than that?”
Anne Radcliffe: “As ironic as this is, given how sick I am right now of winter, I long to do an extreme winter vacation in Iceland. I want to club my way through the long dark at Iceland Airwaves in early November. I want to go on a photography tour to take pictures of the glaciers and ice caves, the northern lights and galactic rim. And then I want to park my rear end in the Blue Lagoon hot springs and be pampered just a little bit.”
Leslie Foster: “You may wonder how I can LOVE a lip balm, but after years of avoiding all of the usual brands because they taste gross, I finally landed on EOS lip balms. They don’t taste gross. They don’t smell like a bowl of Fruit Loops. They leave your lips incredibly smooth. ”
Katja Wulfers: “Look, I’m just going to say what every Canadian who doesn’t live in British Columbia is thinking — and I have it on good authority that Bostonians feel the same way — ENOUGH with -27C and frozen nostrils and cheeks that have lost all feeling!!! I love winter, really I do, and I spend a lot of time outdoors, but would it kill us to feel warm again? Anyway, I am COVETING a warm beach with a passion bordering on 50 Shades of Sand, except with better dialogue. I present Guadeloupe and its lovely beaches.”
