Summer’s nearly in the dust (!?) so it was high time for us to dust off our Can’t Live Without series. And home décor and design writer, Vicky Sanderson, was kind enough to sit down with us to talk about her busy life as a journalist. She writes about home décor and design in the Toronto Star and her work has also appeared in outlets including Canadian Living, House & Home, Reno and Décor and Active Life. She frequently shares tip, tricks and trends on Canada AM, Breakfast Television and CH Morning Live. With such a busy schedule, it’s no wonder she needs a little Funky Bunch to shake off the stress. Read below for the 5 things she Can’t Live Without…
1. My Books – Even though I read and write all day, I could not exist without them when I’m off the clock. I read pretty widely – fiction, biography, history – everything except self-help books, which may explain a lot!
2. In the kitchen, I love, love, love my Salad Xpress Food Processor. It slices, shreds, grates or crinkle cuts right into your bowl – without taking up all the space of a food processor. It’s a toss-up whether I love it or my slow cooker more. Frankly, life without either would be a sad affair.
3. CBC Radio – Talkie stuff in the morning, music in the afternoon. We are so blessed to have this network. Also I need regular fixes of classic movies on TCM. I never watch reality shows – I think they’re part of an international conspiracy to keep people lazy, stupid and distracted from the stuff that really matters.
4. Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion – Not going to go the Botox route – I could never afford it, and I worry about what kind of message it would send to my three daughters about women and aging. But DO.NOT.TRY. to take this miracle cream away from me! A large part of my personal plan for aging successfully is simply to become more and more amusing, thus ensuring ongoing invitations to more and better parties.
