[Tried // True] Winter 2013

Click "Read more" for the details

1. florabotanica perfume by balenciaga : this may be my favorite perfume ever. warm, floral, light and it lasts all day. also no chemical smell. i'm picky about scents and this one is terrific.

2. vintage brass lockets by verabel : i love that these come in a variety of sizes, colors and patterns. i'm especially drawn to the ones with geometric tribal designs.

3. the end of your life book club by will schwalbe : this is a memoir about the impromptu book club that will and his mother form when they find out that she is dying of cancer. it sounds depressing but it's uplifting as it really is a tribute from a loving son to his amazing (and i mean a-mazing) mother. it's also about living life to it's fullest and always treating people well... even if death is knocking at your door.

4. super skin products by liz earle : the super skin moisturiser and eye & lip treatment are my skin's salvation during the dry winter months.

5. the silver linings playbook: a novel by matthew quick : i didn't see the movie (heard they changed a few things), but i loved the book. it's funny, quirky, witty, sad at times... and you come to love the characters, faults and all.

6. cute socks by gap : the pattern on these socks make me happy-- polka dots, lady bugs, bees, so fun! i like how they are shorter so i don't have to struggle trying to pull them up under my pant legs (the curse of skinny jeans).

7. organic rooibos tea by red leopard : i love to drink this in the afternoon. it is caffeine free but high in anti-oxidants and minerals. and in warmer weather, the peach flavor makes an excellent iced tea.

8. wedge fashion sneakers by sketchers : okay, these are obviously a fad. but they are comfortable, give me a much needed 3-inch boost and they look cute with jeans. i did not get them in orange but went with a safe taupe :)

Have a great weekend!
