Ten Essentials for Daily Life....

What can you not live without in your daily life? What makes it easier for you and reduces stress? Well, it starts with the Italian toothpaste Marvis for me!! Their flavors are incredible and the packaging is top notch! Jasmin is my favorite.

I use the complete skin care line of Clarins and cannot live without the multi-intensive day cream. Amazing stuff! You can fly half way around the world and still have hydrated skin upon arrival with this stuff!

Burt's Bee Balm is always with me. I also use the lipsticks and lipshines as they are all medicated to keep lips moist. Great in dry climates and travel.

Don't get me started on music....must have my iPod . I listen to music when I paint. It sets the mood and affects my productivity. Music is more important to me than tv.

If I could only have one magazine in the world, it would be World of Interiors! I anticipate it each month and squeal with delight upon it's arrival. It is the best decorating magazine out there.

If I want something sweet, I grab a butter crisp by Jules Destrooper. With only ten in a box, you can't over indulge!

Must have my Hermes! I use Caleche, 24 Rue Faubourg and Eau de Merveilles. I wear one of them every day. Introduced in 2004, Eau de Merveilles is my favorite with its woody topnotes, amber and pink pepper. It is lighter that the other two and great even when I am painting.

I only sleep on Signoria di Firenze sheets...sigh...once you feel them, you will understand. Made in Italy of egyptian cotton with 600 thread count, they are an investment, but there is nothing else like them against your skin.

Good leather! Cannot have too many leather organizers. Pictured, are my business card holder, credit card holders, wallet and coin purses.

What is life without humor? On a particular tough day, I always turn to Ennio Marchetto. Born in Venice (hmmmm...is there a theme to my likes?) he is an amazing comedian. YouTube has hours of classic Ennio to watch. With the holidays here, daily life can get lost in the shuffle. Try to keep it simple and let the daily rituals keep you grounded. Let me know what you cannot live without on a daily basis!

Dito re the World of Interiors and I will have to give the Clarins day cream a try...the butter crisps are tempting but I had better not get started on those. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. ~jermaine~

I cannot believe my eyes !!! You know De Strooper's biscuits !!! They come from Belgium (I'm born there) and impossible to find here in France. Those are my husband's favourites and my step-mother POST him a box once a year for his birthday !!

It is a small world! I took some of these to Pierre Finkelstein at IDAL this year when I was a monitor for his class! I love them.

Hermes has such a distinct line of fragrances.....you are in a room...take a whiff and immediately know them when you smell them. They are classics.
