If you are anything like me, now is about the time when the magic of the winter season starts to fade away.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the holiday season. Especially those family moments you only get to experience when everyone is together, but I’ll always be someone whose heart belongs to the spring and summer.
That’s the exact mindset I had when I put together this month’s edition of Joy’s Picks. Even though there’s still snow on the ground, I’m already looking ahead to the next seasonal revival. Hopefully this month’s picks can help you through those last few weeks of winter and get you set up to put your best foot forward in the spring.
But remember, there’s a good chance one of these picks could become your next serious crush.
For many years I’ve made fresh lotus root tea and cooked lotus root for my family, because it has the property of drying up mucus. The problem is that it’s not always easy to find. I recently came across Eden Lotus Root Tea, which delivers the same benefits as my homebrew, but oh so much easier.
An artist is only as good as their tools, and that’s especially true in the kitchen. Ever tried to chop with a dull knife? You’ll drive yourself nuts. Make sure your kitchen toolkit features a knife that will never let you down. This knife from TUO cutlery has become my go-to chopping knife. It cuts through sushi rolls like butter!
At this point in the winter, I need a little shoe refresh. I just love these Chloe booties in denim! They are perfect for whatever the last few weeks of the season can throw your way. With spring knocking on our door, we are never looking back❤️.
I can’t be the only one who loves cloth napkins at the table. It’s a timeless approach to elevate any meal. I have a huge collection of napkin rings, but a simple beautifully designed one such as this, by Georg Jensen, is timeless and oh so chic. Perfect to reflect the last rays of a summer sunset.
