Frederic Malle (Jurassic Flower! Russian Nights! 1er Mai! Cafe Society!) candles are the best. Cire Trudon is also pretty good (Abd el Kader & Ernesto in particular). A little pricey ($80-$100) but completely worth it.

What to Do When Theft Hits Home

Nowadays, never. When my commute to work was a 2-mile walk, I used it everyday. On vacation when I didn't have a computer or smartphone, I used it all the time (even with spotty wifi, I was able to keep a big map of Paris in the cache and use the maps app effectively). But it doesn't have a place in my current iPhone/Macbook/Kindle configuration. I typically have at least 12 tabs open at a given time and the iPad simply cannot handle it. I feel lucky that I didn't have to pay for my iPad (it was a gift) but I regret not selling it immediately (at the time, it wasn't available in the country where I was living and it was selling for $1k on Craigslist).

I'm working on a semi-minimalist bedroom in gray. I'm painting the walls, closet, and four pieces of furniture the same shade of gray, and I'm only allowing red, burnt orange, and chartreuse accents/art. It looks great, and I was surprised that it was so hard to find examples of minimalist rooms in gray.
