Blackberry Bold 9700: Must have. I have tried reverting to the iPhone twice but to no such avail. Upon purchasing the new iPhone 4, I had to sell it two weeks later again just so I could get my hands on a blackberry again. BBM > Whatsapp. Sorry folks.
Moleskin Daily Planner: I got one with the soft leather cover which makes for easier transportation and it's definitely lighter on the shoulders. I try to keep all my engagements in the planner but sometimes life gets too hectic and I rely on my memory instead.
Macbook: Apple certainly did good on this one. After using a Mac, I don't think I could ever switch back to a Windows PC. Besides, I would have to reorientate my fingers into using CTRL options again, so not investing my money, time and effort.
Burt's Bees Lipbalm: Gotta try it to love it, I'm sure most of you already have. I prefer the original one though, the tinted pomegranate gets a bit too messy for my liking.
Eclipse Mints: So dumb as I was, I thought that Eclipse were non-existent in America and hence I lugged a million cases of them (aka overweight suitcase) back to Boston. I was wrong, available in almost every drugstore and supermarket. Fail.
Bottega Veneta Wallet: My mom and I are big fans of the brand, the leather is incredibly soft and the simplicity of the woven pattern just keeps us going back for more. We have also recently coerced the father into joining the fan club which means more goodies to come!
Scarf (usually in a nude, muted color): Much needed layering item, especially in late fall-winter where weather in New England is often sporadic and unpredictable, never know when you're going to need it! I usually bring out a neutral color because it's versatile and easy to match. However, when feeling a bit more adventurous, I like to go for my leopard print one
Sabon Hand Cream in Carrot: This is a must-have staple in every girl's kit. I did a post on Sabon in my previous blog but I will reiterate that this company makes the best lotions + body scrubs. I have been a fan since my 'gor' (aka brother) David took me to their Soho store when I went to visit the city one weekend last year. We had the most enjoyable time there washing our hands in their big ceramic sink. Walked out with what seemed like a new pair of hands. Truly incredible. If you don't know about this brand already, you're missing out. BIG TIME.
