1. Cheeky stationery from Read Between the Lines. I’m in the mood to send my love via handwritten notes these days. Printed with saucy slogans (like, “Come back to me I must have you” or “I’m feeling tipsy and fresh”), your message will be as fun as an emoticon with hearts for eyes but on pretty paper instead. Pick up a pack at Neighborhood.
2. Susan Posnick’s Colorflo Bronzer for a quick sun-kissed look, easy travel, and a refillable compartment. (Plus, every purchase benefits Mina Chang’s Linking the World.) Available at Forty Five Ten, Stanley Korshak, and The Songbird Society.
3. Anything from Dallas-based Times Two Design, but especially one of designer Lauren Renfrow’s lacquered boxes with quartz, agate, and mineral adornments. I’d use it to store assorted tchotchkes that build up on the table by the front door.
5. The Coldfront pack, a kit of chilled pads. Sounds ridiculous at first, but wait a minute. Think back to last summer when you sweat was dripping down the backs of your legs in the three-digit temperatures. Yeah. That’s coming up again. Two mini “palm packs” stay cold for 12 hours with a cooling case.
Update: Leddy’s Ranch and Indigo 1745 will be carrying Sensibly Selfish’s fall/winter 2013 collection.
