Winter Vacation…in a bottle!

January is the month that begs for continuous orbitz searches for beach getaways.

A much more cost effective and immediate fix has arrived!

Maison Martin Margiela’s ever developing line of fragrances, Replica, is a “reproduction of familiar scents and moments”.  Replica offers scents such as Tea Escape, At the Barber and reversecommuter’s favorite, Beach Walk.

It’s this good!

Confessions…

reversecommuter has a confession to make…

I really love stonewashed linen.

Bedding, curtains…

table linens, cushions…

even a simple robe to wear while enjoying the morning coffee.

A couple of my favorite sources (mainly European) are Ibeco, and H&M (believe it or not the retail behemoth offers amazing quality linens!!).  Click the blue to go shopping!

Oh, on the topic of confessions….

reversecommuter has temporarily escaped the snow, and is warming up at the beach (where the internet connection is sketchy at best!).

A small selection of reversecommuter’s Shan collection

Please don’t undermine the intensity of my decision making process.  The wrong selection could deeply affect my beach time…(not really).

The navy blue python tassel bikini it is!  Although the raspberry is still calling my name…

Shan delivers variety in every collection, with material, cut and style but fit is never an issue, always exactly as expected.  Hit the blue to go to Shan.ca and take in all of the 2014 Collection – both men’s and women’s, fyi!

I haven’t tried Shan’s full piecers yet – at what time of your life do you bid adieu to the bikini – or do you? But that alas, is an entirely different conversation to be posted some other time!  😉
