Alex Mill cotton cardigan in pink. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

With the weather beginning to warm up, I’ve begun searching for a lightweight cardigan or two that I can throw on over my lighter tops at home. I like the shape of this one, though for myself I’d probably opt for the navy.

But if you need to keep it simple, or space is an issue, a Nespresso machine is the way to go. The milk frother is a breeze to use, and the capsules are recyclable.

Tea drinker? I love the retro look of this electric kettle with temperature control. This blue is fun and unusual, and there are other colors too. Currently 25% off.

Bastide miel de lavande scented candle. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I keep one of these scented candles on my nightstand, and find the fragrance very soothing and calming. (And don’t we all need a little of that these days?) It’s one of the items included in a “self care” promotion at Neiman Marcus. Get $50 off a beauty purchase of $200, and $100 off $400 with code SELFCARE. (Think I might order a bottle or two of their hand & body lotion…with all of the hand washing I’m really going through my lotion!)

Wild One Eucalyptus Peppermint conditioning dog shampoo. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

And speaking of fragrance, our dog is starting to smell like a dog again. 😆🐶 With the groomer closed for the duration, I’m going to have to take matters into my own hands. I’ve ordered some of this shampoo to try, will report back.

    Good morning and I also thank you for continuing to post! A question for you and your readers: has anyone bought anything from Alex Mill? I am eyeing that sweater (and also found a jacket) but am between sizes – wondering if their clothes run smaller or larger than TTS (and if TTS, I won’t know which to get – LOL!). Thank you!

      I haven’t tried any of their sweaters yet (this one’s on order), but did try one of their jackets and found it was TTS.

    Hello from Australia! I always enjoy your blog, and particularly applaud your bold and successful colour change! Have to say though, when one is in full isolation for 2 weeks and then with all social outings and travel cancelled indefinitely, the need for, and interest in, clothes is very low! So many things in the closet just not getting used.

    Susan, you’re so good to us to post during this time. Really — it’s a gift! Thank you.

    Because I’m self-quarantined way out in the country, I spend some portion of my days playing dress-up in my closet. Because I can, and it gives me pleasure–both reasons enough. 🙂

    I say, let’s keep suiting up, whether we can leave the house or not.
