  • SOFA CASTING

    “Since we moved into our new home, my husband and I have been on the hunt for the perfect sofa. And our mandates aren’t too ridiculous: It needs to look amazing in our living room and be totally, completely, I-want-to-stay-supine-all-day comfortable. I know, this was a tall order—until I saw the Burrow sofa. I love how it’s completely customizable in terms of its fabric and leg colors, and it’s insanely comfortable. It also has a hidden USB charger, which is genius. But above all, my favorite part is that it’s made in the US.”

  • THE CLEAN PLATE

    “The list of things that can get me into the kitchen with a smile on my face is very short. A new cookbook from GP is at the very top. Every recipe is super clean and super healthy, but that’s not what you’re thinking about when you’re eating the food because it just tastes really good. There are one-hundred-some recipes and, in the back of the book, six Q&A’s and eating plans from some of our favorite functional doctors. Preorder now and you’ll have the weeklong cleanses to follow for a January reset.”

  • BETTER LEGGINGs

    “With the global environmental crisis and all the latest (dooming) reports on climate change, I am trying to make more-conscious choices to support eco-friendly businesses with a sustainable mind-set. Each pair of these leggings is made out of twenty-five recycled plastic water bottles, and they are my staples for working out. I’ve had my first pair for almost two years now, and they’ve barely stretched or lost their color.”

  • FAMILY DRAMA

    “I’ve been loving the new Amazon series The Romanoffs. It’s centered on people who believe they are the modern-day decendants of the Russian royal family. Each of the eight episodes features an entirely new cast—and a new story. You never know what you’re in for.”
    —Megan Converse, graphic designer

  • HOT & COLD

    “I prefer a pot of fresh French press but don’t need that much each morning. On the other hand, I hate how wasteful single coffee pods are. I discovered this bottle from our goop gift guides and immediately knew I needed it to make my morning coffee routine easier and less wasteful. This Soma bottle lets me quickly brew coffee by pouring hot water directly over ground coffee, and then I can attach the lid to take it with me to the office.”

  • LILJESTRAND HOUSE

    “I was born in Oahu and go back every winter to visit friends and family. One of my favorite things to do is explore the mid-century modern architectural masterpieces, of which there’s a surprisingly huge amount. This year, I

    plan on revisiting a favorite—Liljestrand House, designed by Vladimir Ossipoff and completed in 1952. An entire issue of House Beautiful was dedicated to the place in 1958, and it’s one of the most special residential projects I’ve ever seen. Plus, the views—from a perch on Tantalus Drive, shrouded in jungle and high above Honolulu—are the best you’ll find on the island. You can see the entire city from up there.”

  • GET OUT OF TOWN

    “I’ve been dreaming of an island getaway ever since the New York weather dropped below fifty. After the holidays, a warm-weather family vacation will be at the top of my priority list. I’ve already scouted our destination: the Como Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos. For me, the resort makes or breaks a vacation, so we tend to splurge on this element. I can’t wait to relax and unwind for some quality time doing absolutely nothing with my family.”

  • LET IT SHINE

    “Yes, ’tis the season for sequins, but I truly believe the Flynn Sequin Skirt from the December launch of G. Label will serve me well long into the new year, with sweatshirts, chambray, crisp white button-downs…. What really sold me on it was seeing GP wearing it around the office. She paired it with white sneakers and a cream-colored cashmere sweater. Super chic.”

  • BABY ADORNED

    “Lately, it seems everything’s coming up…babies. Cousins, friends, coworkers—so many people in my life are expecting, which gives me the chance to buy precious, colorful, tiny little gifts. And lately, all I’ve been giving are pieces from Pineapple Sunshine, a line of super soft baby clothes out of Georgetown, D.C. Designer Shanlee Johnson hand-draws each of the adorable prints, and she donates a portion of the line’s proceeds to the Global Lyme Alliance. I’m just waiting for her to start making adult sweatshirts out of the same soft cotton.”

  • FRAMED

    “As a designer, I spend more than eight hours a day staring at my computer and looking at a screen, which is not great. After reading about how damaging blue light could be for my eyes, I purchased a pair of these glasses. They are fashionable and do not have a tint, which can alter the colors on your screen (not good when you work with colors and graphics). My eyes are no longer tired within the first half of my workday. And I feel a lot better knowing that I am protecting my eyes.”

  • FLOWER LOVE

    “I like to joke that I was raised by wolves, in the sense that things like hostess gifts still remain absolutely foreign to me. But I recently discovered dried flowers as a concept/hostess gift/housewarming gift: They smell amazing and last forever, and when you show up with them, whoever greets you doesn’t need to rush to get them in water right away. Love Adorned has everything from roses to bunches of lavender, eucalyptus, thistle, and everything else good. You can find the arrangements at all three locations—Santa Monica, New York, or Amagansett—or, of course, DIY one if you’re not the raised-by-wolves type.”

  • GOOD FACE

    “I spend a lot of time in and out of London, so I always try to squeeze in an Alexandra Soveral signature treatment at the Agua Bathhouse & Spa. It’s a new discovery, and one I was sorely tempted to keep to myself. After a long, dehydrating flight across the Atlantic, an hour on arguably the most comfortable massage bed in the Sea Containers‘ super modern spa seemed like a good idea. A deep clean is followed by an intense lymphatic-drainage massage. Hot and cold stones dipped in fragrant oils and rolled over my face take care of any postflight puffiness and help with the dreaded jet lag. Soveral’s organic, nontoxic products are made from botanicals grown on her family farm in Portugal—and they smell heavenly.”

  • HERBAL LIFE

    “Goldthread founder William Siff and his team hosted a group of goop girls at their Santa Monica headquarters for a private Plantventure event. Siff, a clinical herbalist, ethnobotanist, and licensed acupuncturist, showed us how to use plants and herbs in our daily life. He walked us through his botanical journey, showing us how he’s used plants as an approach to optimal health and for remedies. We learned to work with plants in unique, unexpected ways (and we drank some delicious herbal tonics). I left feeling refreshed and inspired to incorporate more herbs into my daily life.”

    “Because we all need to feel like we’re burning off the red wine and charcuterie board this time of year, I make sure I visit Sweat Yoga during the week. I live near the beach and couldn’t be happier that the new Playa Vista studio opened. It’s roomy enough to do a full-body stretch without getting too cozy with your neighbor (plus really nice showers for an early morning, straight-to-work class).”

    “The textures, architectural shapes, and lushness of the dry gardens captured by Daniel Nolan are overwhelming. His book has inspired me to create my own dry garden in LA. I am always trying to find ways to conserve water and never thought a garden could be so beautiful—with so little water.”
