7 Things On My Spring Wish List

-Hobes Shoes...


Because they look so dang comfortable- "supremely comfortable", says the company. And I love the idea of a handmade shoe. And they also have some booties with a shearling lining, which I'm determined will be my new house shoe (since my puppies destroyed my other house shoes- oye.). See: Hobes Shoes (of AU).

-Kortni Jeane Bathing Suits...




Because the mixed matched options are absolutely darling - and they have many options for different body types. And it's time to clear out some very old bathing suits that I have had around for years + I love all the possibilities they have with patterns and colors...and ruffles. (Their instagram feed is full of inspiration! And they're launching a new line early this week.) See the website: Kortni Jeane.


*********************

-Rose Otto Essential Oil...
Because I've been obsessed with the scent of rose ever since I worked across from Barney's and discovered L'Artisan Parfumeur. Though essential oils are a non-toxic alternative. I saw this rose wholesale company recommended, Alteya Organics. It's a bit cheaper to buy straight from the rose farm itself. (You can also buy this brand on Amazon.)



*********************


-When Breath Becomes Air...
Because this has been one of the most recommended books of all time. And we have a new Sunday tradition to sit by the fire and read. And, this book attempts to answer the question: What makes a life worth living? Buy on Amazon. (I have this package already waiting for me in the States!)


*********************


-Fruit Stand...
Because I need a new one for NYC and this simple, vertical design (from Amazon) will be good for our small kitchen. I can't wait to return to my NY CSA with all the goodies, including heirloom tomatoes, kirby cucumbers, peaches, plums, blueberries, and raspberries (these are some foods that we can't get or aren't quite the same here in Ecuador.)


*********************


-Window Boxes...
Because I have adored having our little window boxes in Brooklyn...though they need to be replaced as the teak eventually rotted and didn't hold up too well. And, of course, I'm already dreaming of next spring as we should be in Brooklyn, shopping for new blooms and skipping through the city with the rest of New York. This planter is from Crate & Barrel.


*********************

-Epsom Salt...
Because I'm convinced that soaking in a hot bath every night leads to the softest skin ever, and the most dreamy night's sleep. And soaking in several cups of mineral rich Epsom Salt makes it so nourishing to the body as well. Tim Ferriss recommends this epsom salt and buys it in bulk from Amazon. I don't have a proper bath right now in Ecuador, but I'll be buying this immediately upon our return.

  1. Will you be back in the states by Christmas? Are you offering any discounts for Mesa? I really want to be there and I think I can make it work, because my sister in law lives in Gilbert and can help with our two youngest kids. :) I LOVE the swimsuits and my daugher would love the shoes.

  2. I read the book and was kind of disappointed... Don't get me wrong, it is very well written, it's very interesting to see a doctor become a patient and what are his feelings and experience. It's interesting to understand how tough is to become a neuro surgeon... but I think that for soul seekers as you are, it's a little disappointing. He spends a lot of time explaining how much hard work he has done to get where he was, how excellent he had to be on his field, how "great" he is (which I really believe he was, but still it sounds weird when someone keeps mentioning it over and over) and when times come for him to choose how he wants to spend the time he has left , you get the feeling that illness hasn't changed much of his life perspective. He had already a nice life perspective before the illness, but I felt like he would prioritize differently... You'll see! Still it's a great book and testimony! And my heart goes to his wife and child...

    1. I really appreciate this honest review! Thank you. And now I'm a little more curious to read it.

    2. I have not read it but my husband who just finished his surgical residency did and really really loved it. It was emotionally moving for him. I think he connected to it so much because he understood the experience of being a resident. I think that's an experience that, unless you have been there, it is hard to fully understand

  3. I loved the book. It felt so pure to read if that makes sense/ for lack of better words at 5am with a fussy toddler. I felt like his talking about career, etc like the reader above mentioned was natural because it was his whole life work and his life was changed dramatically and coming to an end. It is am emotional read. Especially the portion written by his wife at the end.

  4. Also wanted to add that I absolutely love that Rose oil! And Epsom salts. I make an amazing lotion/cream with that oil, Shea, argan oil and a few other things that leaves your skin like silk.
