HHH Shopping Guide | Treats for Your Lover

{1} The world's greatest ice cream (er, gelato) flavor combination - deep, dark West African chocolate with jalapeño. Chocolate jalapeño gelato, $6.99/pint, Ciao Bella.

{2} The Perfect Red (thank you, Amber Doyle). M.A.C. lipstick in Chili, M.A.C., $14

{3} TOKYOMILK Rose with Bees Bubble Bath, Floral Art L.A., $26

{4} Dolce & Gabbana Nylon & Raffia Body Suit, Dolce & Gabbana Boutiques, $1,195

{5} While she wasn’t quite as forward as Eva Marie Saint is with Cary Grant on that train, I always loved how Grace Kelly whipped out her utterly prim and proper Mark Cross overnight bag, stuffed to the gills with silk lingerie to put on a show for Jimmy in Rear Window. This, while a tad less subtle, but could probably do the job today. Valextra Small Boston Bag in Rosso Red, Barneys New York, $1,790

{6} A bit of a lover’s cliché, but I’d rip off my right arm for one (just need one arm to wear it properly). Cartier Love Bracelet in yellow gold, Cartier, $3,850

{7} Everyday I Love You wafer notebook, Smythson, $52


  1. Yes, please. I'll take one of each.

    TOKYOMILK has the best packaging.

  2. you always find the loveliest things. the notebook is wonderful.

  3. Ah, love the Eva Marie Saint reference, she was always my favorite of the Hitchock ice queens - actually, not that icy now that I'm thinking of that train scene!

    My mum was a big fan of Mark Cross. The red bag also reminds me of Margot Tenenbaum's fabulous stack of red luggage.

    I might lose a limb to get that cartier bracelet as well...I've had the picture tossed around here for ten years and still no bracelet. SOME DAY....nice list of things to lust after....Love IT!

    Love the Tokyomilk suggestion. Candles, a warm bath with bottles, a cup of tea, and music... a piece of heaven if you ask me =)
