5 Favorite Things

Clockwise: White Company "Fresh Fig" candle, Hermes Cape Cod watch, Comme des Garcons wallet, Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats and white roses.

The White Company candle arrived in the post not too long ago. One sniff was enough to take me back to one of my favorite places on earth - Provence. The Hermes Cape Cod automatic GM double tour watch was a gift from my husband. Five years on, I still love the watch which also doubles as  a bracelet. I call it my 2 in 1. I get friendly nods of acknowledgement from other owners every now and then. It's like a secret club........

I'm tired of carrying my oversized organizer/wallet which is big enough to be used as a weapon. I wanted something that's well made, relatively inexpensive (no more than £80) and has a cool factor. I've been eyeing this red embossed Comme des Garcons small wallet for a while now and finally nabbed it when it was back in stock again. The darned thing kept selling out. Pffffft. I went for the smallest size in the end. It's actually surprisingly roomy. I can dump all my cards, coins and receipts but it's compact enough to fit into the pocket of my parka. Since I'm usually dressed in neutral colors (actually....black most of the time), the Comme des Garcons wallet can double as a clutch and add a nice pop of color.

These Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats are a whimsical addition to my otherwise tomboyish and avant-garde outfits. I call them my happy shoes because they seem to put a smile on people's faces whenever they notice my flats.

I fail at Flora and Fauna 101. Recognizing the varieties of flowers just isn't my forte but at least I can pronounce roses, peonies and tulips correctly.

**Thank you, The White Company for the gift.
