I've never been very good at outerwear. Fortunately, for the last 8 months I've been living in a place where I don't need much of it. This edit doesn't actually reflect all of what I own. A lot of my cold weather things are still back in New York, so this is just what I happen to have with me in India at the moment. When I'm able to get my hands on them, I'll add the wool coat, the cropped leather jacket and the Barbour jacket that are hanging in my closet in Brooklyn.
I did edit out one heavy coat which was looking a bit dingy, and which, if I'm honest, I've never really liked. I bought it on sale on a bitterly cold day because the coat I was wearing was insufficiently warm. Impulse purchase coats are rarely a good idea.
- Urban Outfitters military jacket
- Nicobar reversible jacket
- Sandro trench coat

Let me blow your mind real quick. Did you know that every toothbrush you’ve ever owned still exists somewhere? Yep. The bathroom may not seem like a tremendous source of plastic in our lives, but when we think about how long it takes plastic to break down, it’s worth it to consider all the bits of plastic that we use every day. Here are four ways to cut down on plastic in the bathroom and make it a waste-free zone.
One of the challenges of international travel is that it can leave you looking tired, dehydrated, and generally ragged. I don’t care who you are, flying through the night is hard on your body, your immune system, and your skin. But with a little preparation, you can help mitigate the bedraggling effects of trans-Atlantic travel.
The Norse razor is sleek, lightweight, easy to hold and maneuver, and its shape virtually eliminates the risk of nicks, even in the trickiest places. I don’t even feel the blade when I use it, and don’t have to worry about using too much pressure, as the design naturally protects my skin from heavy-handed strokes.
Anyone who suffers dry skin like mine will understand - when your skin is dry, cracked, and red in the cold winter months, you’re willing to use anything that works.
OK, so I don't flatter myself that anyone actually gives a shit what's in my makeup bag. I just wanted to show you in order to illustrate a point. This is the makeup bag of a person who is in transition, working toward a less wasteful lifestyle.
You can reap a lot of savings by making some of your own cosmetics and toiletries, with the added benefit of knowing exactly what's going into them (no mystery un-pronounce-able ingredients, thank you very much!).
