Giant Charlotte’s Magic Cream

I squeezed every last drop of Charlotte’s Magic Cream out of the sample I got at Holt Renfrew and I would love to get my hands on this giant pot of magic. The patented anti-aging and hydrating ingredients stimulate collagen production and fight free radicals. It’s almost as good as beauty sleep. Almost. Giant Charlotte’s Magic Cream, $320 (150 mL) at Holt Renfrew

Tilley Floppy Fedora

I’m trading in my toque for this stylish floppy fedora. Bonus: discreet earwarmers can be pulled down on cold days so I don’t actually have to sacrifice comfort for style. Tilley Floppy Fedora, $115 at tilley.com

Lustrous Silk Pillowcases


You can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep and these silk pillowcases are a game-changer. Clique’s pillowcases are made of 100% mulberry silk and are so irresistibly soft.
