THE BEST WAY TO EASE INTO A NEW YEAR

If you find yourself overserved on New Year's eve, perhaps a little hair of the dog and time under the covers will restore your energy and leave you ready to take on 2011! Here are some ways to wile away the day--

Breakfast in bed may be the best way to spend the better part of your day. Dine in duvet style with Charles Fradin Home's Alva Bed Tray.


Channel your love of folkloric florals with Anthropologie's Cadiz Mug.

Fill your cup with Partners Tea Co. fair trade teas, a company started by my college friend Sarah Scarborough. I was beyond excited to see her teas included in West Elm stores well-edited holiday gift assortment. Her Sweet Friend Blend is delicious, with its blend of herbal and raspberry flavors.

Kill a cold and get your energy back with Redoxon fizzy Vitamin C tablets. I always stock up on these when I am in London-- they really do the trick.

Spend you leisure time writing thank you notes for gifts with Rifle Paper Co.'s amusing Friends of The Forest cards from Anthropologie.

Stay indoors and get cozy wearing a Marigot Collection long cashmere sweater with a handy pocket for tissues if you have the sniffles.

I love my shearling Uggs, but sometimes an adorable design can trump shearling. Gorsuch has these boiled wool Chalet Slippers with a charming winter scenic design.

Start off the New Year right by reading a classic, again. Take on Jane Austen's Emma, a Penguin Hardcover Classic, specially encased in in graphic artist Coralie Bickford-Smith's design on stamped linen.
