Kim Wardell, founder and CEO of Design Life Kids, shares her top five favorite things around the Main Line region.

1. Slow Hand’s Old Fashioned.

I am a huge fan of this West Chester restaurant for its incredible menu, attention to detail and unique cocktails. They’ve truly perfected their Old Fashioned. 30 N. Church St., West Chester, (484) 999-8638,

2. Ha Ko Paper Incense From Rikumo.

These little paper leaves are a work of art. Beautifully made in Japan, they fill your room with a perfect little fragrance as they burn. 19 W. Lancaster Ave., Ardmore, (215) 609-4972,

3. Retro Apparel From Jawn Supply.

This place is really cool if you’re looking for something vintage, old-school—maybe a vintage Philly sports team sweatshirt or a cool Harley-Davidson T-shirt. 40 S. High St., West Chester,

4. The House Special Soup at Asuka.

My daughters and I have been going to Asuka since they first opened their doors. We find ourselves craving their soup (wontons, chicken, pork, shrimp and seasoned vegetables in a clear broth). It’s funny … I don’t even like soup that much. 1502 West Chester Pike, West Chester, (610) 738-8888,

5. Permanent Jewelry From True by Kristy.

It’s such a sweet way to create a bond with any family member or special friend. Choose from necklaces, bracelets, rings or anklets. 16 S. Church St., West Chester, (484) 787-5800,
