Making Your Move in NYC

If you’ve lived in New York City for as long as I have, you know that moving can be stressful!  Between uprooting and packing up your “past-life”, to unpacking into a brand new space and making new design choices- it can feel like a roller coaster of emotions. These products have made my new NYC apartment feel comfortable among the stress, and achieve a chic yet classic design look!

100% Organic Cotton Bed Sheet

Moving to a new space always calls for new bedding and shower towels to make my new home feel clean and ready to be lived in. Delilah Home carries the BEST bedding and the softest towels. The 100% Organic Cotton Bed Sheet Collection from Delilah Home includes a full 4 piece set of 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, 2 pillow cases. My best night’s sleep has been when using Delilah Home bedding, the luxurious feel and 100% organic cotton lets my body breathe throughout the night.

100% Organic Cotton Bath Towel

The 100% Organic Cotton Bath Towel Collection is not to be missed. The collection comes with 3 pieces: a face towel, hand towel, and bath towel. The towels are made from 100% Turkish cotton spun into fine yarns and then loomed into long, 2-ply, double loops- resulting in a soft and fluffy fabric that makes bathing feel like you’re at the spa.

Not only does Delilah Home make durable products (300-count weave bedding!) but they also partner with Fair Trade factories. Delilah Home also donates 10% of profits to local charities, making me feel good knowing I am purchasing from a brand that gives back.

Evercool Cooling Comforter from Rest Duvet

Now that summer in NYC is here, I feel like I need to stay comfortable at night to be able to get a good night’s sleep. The Evercool Cooling Comforter has become my all-time favorite top layer to sleep with. It has temperature-regulating technology that makes me feel cool and refreshed even during a hot summer night! It is super soft, and I love that even with a simple one-color fabric, the design is stitched with a cool wavy pattern which looks beautiful when I make my bed in the morning. To get that temperature balance, this comforter has thin fibers in the fabric that absorb and eliminate moisture. Another thing I love is that this fabric is cat-hair proof! It repels pet hair with a simple swoop of your hand on the fabric, making this the perfect comforter to have my kitty to cuddle with me.

Affirmation Candle from Journey 180

Something that I find incredibly soothing is lighting the perfect scented candle after a long day. Since moving can be a stressful time, I have been relying heavily on my new Affirmation Candle from Journey 180. The “I am a Pearl” Affirmation Candle has notes of lavender, jasmine petals, patchouli, rosemary, oakmoss, and cedarwood- a blissful combination. Created in the USA, these candles are made using 100% natural soy wax blends and have a 50-60 hour average burn time. These candles are non-toxic and contain no lead, plastics, synthetic dyes or phthalates- which is so important for me since I have a cat that I always think about when buying any scented products. Journey 180 mainly creates self-care planners and journals designed to help reflect on the past, appreciate the present, and get excited for the future.

Organic European Pillowcases from The Modern Dane

Every new home needs a statement piece- and I chose the Modern Dane Organic European Linen Pillowcases to do just that! Not only are these pillowcases hand-sewn in Portugal, but they are made from flax plants. These pillowcases have beautiful designs, inspired by the Nordic landscape. I chose the HØRBLOMST style (Danish for “flax flower”). The design showcases delicate blue flowers of the flax plant when it blooms in June. Since my move was in June, this was the most fitting (and beautiful) choice of design. Now, instead of placing my blanket over my pillows when making my bed- I choose to showcase my new pillowcases by placing my pillows on top! And The best part? These pillowcases are also hypoallergenic, giving my sensitive skin and good night’s rest.

The Maggie Cowles x DSNY 4AM Bowling Top

On a moving day, I need to look and feel my best. I wore the Maggie Cowles x DSNY 4am Bowling top on the day of my move. This top is the definition of cool, with a trendy camp collar and cropped look for a vintage but modern feel. I love the features of this top, designed by Maggie Cowles in collaboration with DSNY (Dinner Service New York). The collaboration is inspired by the triggers of nostalgia in scenes and places, with foods being a major theme within the design. With her own works, Maggie says that the “‘4am’, tells the story of the messy reality of a gathering’s aftermath” “…tired, lonely, recently vacant but still carrying evidence that people had been there, stories were shared, and memories made”. I love the story of this top, and I love how soft and silky it feels.
