This week, we have the uber-talented, do-it-yourselfer extraordinaire, Brooklyn Limestone joining us for the “10 Things I Can’t Live Without” series. Frequently sharing the projects she has completed around her limestone townhouse in Brooklyn, Ms. BL gives her readers glimpses into her lovely life. Every party she has ever featured has been so inspiring. She is such a thoughtful and detail-oriented hostess. And don’t even get me started on her Halloween decorations. She could definitely give Martha a run for her money!
1. Softlips Chapstick: Its my crack. I go through tubes and tubes of the stuff. My husband fills my stocking with it every Christmas. Flavor of choice is cherry (raspberry falling to a very distant second).
2. NYC Transit Metrocard: The subway is my only independent means of transport (I don’t drive.)
3. Ice Cream: Creamy goodness, food of the gods. Not just for summer.
4. Television: Yea, that’s right, I said it. I refuse to buy into the hype that television is bad for me. It makes me laugh, makes me cry, teaches me stuff I’d never know otherwise.
5. Bvlgari Au the Vert Body Lotion: Ridiculously expensive, smells like a dream in a spring field.. The most expensive item you’ll ever find in my medicine cabinet but so worth the splurge.
6. Spray Paint: The ultimate and cheapest transformation tool. Even the most ugly, impractical item can be elevated with the right color of spray paint.
7. The Internet: No surprise here – its changed my life by leaps and bounds. (Yes, I am old enough to remember living live without it!) Blogging, trip research, keeping in touch, shopping, find photos of bizarre skin diseases. Is there anything it can’t do?
8. My Passport: They wouldn’t let my wandering self in other countries without it, now would they?
9. A camera: Half the fun of experiencing something is getting to relive it later.
10. Old Fashioned Mail: As much as I love email and all the wonderful advances of communication technology, there is nothing quite like receiving a hand written letter or a wonderful package in the mail. I like sending them almost as much as I like receiving them. Thank you Mister Postman!
Thanks so much to the lovely Paloma for letting me play a round in this fun little game!
