7 Ways to Stay Stylish With the Cold and Flu

I spent the better half of last week recovering from — and straight up getting my butt kicked by — the flu. And let me tell you, it was not a pretty sight. Not only was I, myself, in historically dreadful form with a temperature of 103 degrees F, but after blowing my nose through a roll of toilet paper (I know, I was out of tissues) and scattering a potpourri of beverages and medicines, from Sudafed to Codeine, around my apartment, the place looked like World World III. Next time, I'll be better prepared. Why? Because I've composed a list of the most stylish essentials ever for anyone who's going to tempt fate and skip out on her annual flu shot.

  1. The Jonathan Adler Pill Carafe ($48) should be set firmly on your bedside (or coffee table, if you're going to konk out in front of a film) to help keep you hydrated.
  2. No matter how you look at it, there's nothing sexy about blowing your nose. But at least your home will look ravishing with the Horchow Horn Tissue Box Cover ($375).
  3. If you're running a fever and you get the chills, you can stay warm and cute with the Angora Wool Pink Heart Hot Water Bottle ($40).
  4. When you run out to the doctor or the pharmacy, keep your meds handy in the Judith Lieber Austrian Crystal Bird Pill Box ($695).
  5. When you're home, keep your Zicam and your Advil corralled in the Rever Pill Box ($48), made of antique brass.
  6. Brew some chamomile in the Christofle Geometrie Teapot ($5,500), created in the 1970s by master silversmith Jacques Citoleux.
  7. And when it's time to cut the day short, keep your NyQuil (or Ambien, if you're lucky) handy on your nightstand in the Jonathan Adler Downers Jar ($120).

There's a spoonful of CasaSugar to help the medicine go down.
