10 Things That Make Me Happy: Habitually Chic
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.
Today, I’m excited to have the one and only Heather from Habitually Chic blogging about what makes her happy. I was waiting with baited breath for her picks because I knew they would fill me with inspiration. When they arrived in my inbox I was even more excited about what came in. Her bookshelf is a library of inspiration, her perfume selection is divine and the shoes, well you’ll just have to look at them below.
Heather is a interior designer working in New York City. One of her most recent projects was on a Bachelor Pad, which turned out amazing. I hope she starts to feature more of her client projects because she does a phenomenal job with each and every interior design job she works on.
Thank you Heather for blogging here today, I couldn’t be more flattered.
Books – My bookshelves are overflowing but I can’t resist buying more art and design books. I find them so inspiring!
Art – I have a degree in art history so art is important to me personally and in my work. I don’t think any project looks finished until the art is hung. And it doesn’t have to cost a lot either. I’ve found some great paintings and watercolors on eBay!
Spring – I love autumn too but there is nothing better than seeing all the trees and flowers in bloom after I long cold winter! The tulips along Park Avenue make me happy every April!
Mario Badescu Facials – Not only are Mario Badescu facials wonderful but they are reasonably priced! They also sell amazing products. Martha Stewart is also a devotee so you know it’s a good thing! (Mario Badescu website)
Le Labo Perfume – Since I started wearing Le Labo Santal perfume last summer, I’ve had so many people ask me what I am wearing or tell me that I smell good. It’s a unique and interesting scent that isn’t too strong or cloying.
Traveling – I used to travel a lot but it’s hard to make the time to getaway when you are working for yourself. I plan to stop feeling guilty and get away more since I find traveling so inspiring and refreshing!
Shoes – Like any woman, I love beautiful shoes and I’ve been lucky to find a lot of great pairs on sale in New York including my favorite Roger Vivier sandals.
Dog Walkers – I love dogs but don’t have one yet so there is nothing I love more than seeing a cute pack of pooches being walking down the street by a dog walker. They always make me smile!
Orange – orange is my favorite color and always makes me happy, especially when it’s the color of cute classic cars!
Top Interior Designers – I am very lucky to live in New York where I can meet other interior designers and often run into them while shopping. I am inspired by those who have come before me such as Todd Romano, Steven Gambrel and Charlotte Moss and greatly admire their hard work and creativity!
