Editors' Picks: It's the Little Things

Editors' Picks: It's the Little Things

They really make all the difference, guys.

For us, when it comes to getting through the week in one piece, it's all about those small indulgences that give your everyday a little, well, oomph. You know the ones—the place you pick up those insane smoothies that change the entire course of your morning, the lip balm that smells so incredible you keep a backup in every purse you own, the surprise bottle of champagne that finds its way to your desk or doorstep. They can be completely vapid—watching Real Housewives marathons from the comfort of your bed—or more meaningful—volunteering regularly—but either way, they go long way in giving you something to look forward to. Here's a handful of ours.

Truthfully, I can't remember the last time I was so flippin' obsessed with every. single. part of a brand's campaign: the clothes, the print ads, the short films, etc. But then Gucci just went all :100: and I'm at a point where I check their Instagram more often than anyone else's (all in hopes they'll reveal something more spectacular). This purse is a perfect example and literally makes me want to jump out of my skin in excitement. Superficial, I know, but I can't help it.

If you want me to be more literal, well, I can, because I swear by these artisanal organic ginger supplements for keeping me feeling my best—especially throughout the particularly cold months. Plus, Fueguia's Agua Magnolia fragrance (which, by the way, I stock up on every time I'm in Buenos Aires) always reminds me of summer days. See, happiness!

I'm the type of person, who, when it comes to utilitarian items, unless I find something that is pretty much perfect, I won't buy it. I'll just go without, no matter how inconvenient. Even when it comes to actual necessities, like shower curtains (side note: WTF is it with every shower curtain being covered in the worst eyesore patterns?).

That said, when I finally do find said thing, it makes me violently happy. Cue these Le Creuset salt and pepper shakers (one pink, one blue): I literally didn't own any for my entire adult life until I found these a few months ago. And guess what? They fill me with an irrational amount of glee. Same thing with this Weleda rose body wash: I obviously owned soap, but for me, it's one of those things that can change the entire course of your morning. Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino is also bomb. Obviously. And finally: anything frilly, like this Rosie Assoulin top. Life is just exponentially better when ruffles cascade from your armpits.

There are a few, somewhat superficial things that will, almost always, make me feel great—or, at the very least, better. The first: a great pair of jeans. At the moment, that means high-waisted and straight legged, exactly like this Current/Elliott pair, here. I can't explain it, but there's something about good denim that inspires a power walk. The second: a great scent. And anything from Byredo is like invisible armour. The third: something glittery. These bangles by Juliet & Co, well, pretty much fit the bill perfectly.

You know that feeling when you need a serious vacation from your vacation? It sounds pretty ridiculous, but it's actually the most true. Especially when your vacation includes a 25+ hour travel time. So behold the three things that make me feel semi-human while battling the post-holiday blues: a shiny statement Juliet & Co. earring to throw on so no one notices I'm wearing the same jeans and crewneck sweater combo as the day before; Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Cream, which I can attest is indeed magical—when I slathered it on it erased all evidence of the aforementioned 25+ plane journey; and finally a whole bunch of fancy paper bound in fancy leather that when written in with an equally fancy pen, makes everything seem a whole lot more glam. Oh, and you can even use it to count down the days until your next vacation.
