If you are based in the Northeast of the United States chances are you are holed up in your home riding out hurricane Sandy at least for the next few days. Here, a few of our suggestions for riding out the storm in luxury. For instance, why not pop that ultra expensive bottle of bubbly you have had in your cupboard for months? Now is as good of a time as any.
You've been told to stock up on canned foods in case of a power outage, but beans in a can simply don't cut it. Enter the company Taste which creates luxury canned goods including premium grilled vegetables and even lobster in a can. For more information visit tasteallnaturalluxury.com.
You are stir crazy and bored cooped up in your house because of the storm, so why not break out a book (we know, its been a while). On our reading list is Assouline's The Impossible Collection of Cars ($695, assouline.com). Ok, so its not the great American novel, but it sure is entertaining.
The bonus of working from home is getting to lounge around in your pajamas all day. Break out the most luxe option. We are loving Naturally From Derek Rose cashmere lounge trousers ($650, mrporter.com).
If you have to go outside (and we don't recommend it, stay safe people) opt for luxury rain boots like Hunter for J. Mendel's genuine fur trim boots ($585, nordstrom.com).
In case the power does go out because of the storm your trusty cappuccino machine is going to be out of commission. Therefore its time to get the French press out. Our favorite at the moment is the Bodum "Chambord" Locking Lid Double-Wall French Press 8-Cup Coffee Maker ($99, bloomingdales.com).
So you have your candles on standby in case of the power outage, but don't just light up anything. We'll be lighting up our Diptyque emergency stash ($60 each, barneys.com).
You've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to pop that ultra expensive bottle of champagne that's been sitting in your cupboard for as long as you can remember. Well, there is no better time then Sandy. We'll be breaking out Dom Pérignon Rose 2000 ($299.95, sherry-lehmann.com).
Cozying up and watching movies during the storm? What better way to do that then with a Missoni throw blanket ($399, stardust.com)?
