5 Must Haves


Narrowing this list down was hard. There are so many "must-have" items in my day-to-day routine, but if I had to pick just five, these would be it!

1. A hotel style bathrobe - Not just any old bathrobe. It's gotta be majorly oversized, terrycloth on the inside (my preference) and super high thread count on the outside. It should have a large collar and giant pockets. Typically if you stay in a nice hotel/resort you have the option to purchase your robe. DO IT. I bought the one at the White Elephant in Nantucket and I seriously wear it

2. Your signature scent - This might take some trial an error to figure out. Be patient. All scents smell differently depending on the person. While I am a perfume addict and have a bunch that I love, I was lucky enough to discover my one true signature scent all the way back in high school and I've never looked back. Coco Chanel Mademoiselle make me feel like me.

3. The perfect mascara - Again, you'll probably try a bunch of duds before you find the one. Perricone MD is my absolute favorite (so random). You can get it at your local Sephora (Tip: make sure to read the instructions on how to use the unique brush before applying). A close second for me is Armani Eyes to Kill (originally suggested by my friend Devon).

4. Silk Pillowcases - I know what you're thinking…"what?" but trust me on this. To begin with, silk pillowcases just feel nice (hello? a silky pillow cloud to rest your head on at the end of a long day??) but they actually come with some great benefits too! If you are crazy about hair health (like me) then you need some silk pillowcases in your life. These babies majorly help to prevent hair breakage when you are tossing and turning at night. They are also great for your skin!! Need more convincing?  Read this for more silky pillow perks! 

5. Great pair of running shoes - I remember a time when I thought wearing sneakers with your normal daytime outfit was basically the nerdiest thing. I used to get second hand embarrassment when I would see someone scooting about in this look. These days, I can't live without my sneakers. Pretty much every morning I throw on my Nikes and walk my caboose to Starbucks and I couldn't be happier in my new daily uniform. Also this, this, and this has convinced me that I made the right choice as a sneaker convert.

Your Turn.
