Currently



Book
Americans In Space by Mary E. Mitchell. A novel. A thirty-something mother dealing with early widowhood. So far I really like it, despite the tearjerking subject.

Song
Simon & Garfunkel- A Hazy Shade Of Winter.

Frequently worn outfit/item
A vintage-inspired rain coat in green/black/white, bought last year at Juicy Couture, of all places.

Perfume
Parfumerie Generale Cuir d'Iris

Makeup
Red lipsticks and super pale face.

Food
Cakes from Patisserie Didier Dumas in Nyack. Paris on the Hudson.

Drink
I'm chugging water like a horse.

Guilty pleasure
A pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. I'm sure it doesn't qualify as coffee, but I like the weirdness. I just wish it weren't so sweet.

Bane of my existence
The kink in my neck- I can't turn my head to the right. It's been an extremely uncomfortable couple of days.

Joy
The extra hour of sleep.

Anticipation
Still all about the new house.

Wish list
Some vintage furniture I've seen in several stores around here. Apparently, I'm a big fan of mid-century Danish design. By the way, does anyone know where I can find that giraffe print from Pete Campbell's (Mad Men) apartment?



Thought
Could the craftsmanship of Ikea furniture be any worse?

Please share your recommendations, banes and joys.

  1. I wish I knew where you could get those prints, I'm in love with them as well. But for the coffee, I'm slightly obsessed with pumpkin spice lattes also, and I just ask for half the amount of syrup and an extra shot. Perfection.

  2. LOL @ "Juicy Couture, of all places":D

    The best finds are the unexpected ones, no? And, I share your passion regarding the decor on Mad Men. Absolutely stunning, and those giraffes are fabulous. I still want Betty's hair do from their dinner in Italy. And maybe the earrings.... ;)

    A new home? Congrats!!! (I'm in real estate)

    Bane of my existence
    The fact that I've been exhausted lately and not waking up as early as I'd like, and thus being unable to complete many necessary errands.

    Joy
    My best friend's birthday is tomorrow, the Yankees being one game away from their 27th World Series win!

    Anticipation
    The Yankees winning, previously mentioned best friend's birthday party, possible pedicure this week.

    Wish list
    NARS Aigle Noir Eyeshadow Pencil, Edward Bess Dusk and Intimate eyeshadows, Shu eyebrow gel, Lipstick Queen Butterfly Ball lipsticks, a new necklace because I lost my beloved razorblade chain on Halloween, and...new bras!

    Thought
    Strangely enough, "Good Night, and Good Luck" is a movie I could watch over and over and over again.

  4. At Starbucks they usually put three pumps of simple syrup in their lattes, all you need is one usually. Just ask.

    Like the other readers, I want those giraffe prints too! And pretty much anything hanging on the walls or anything you can sit on in the offices at Sterling Cooper.

    And yeah, my kink is one the left side of my neck. Heating pad and arnica gel has been helping, but not enough. Hope we both get better soon!

  5. My best recommendation for the neck pain is to see a chiropractor. I had a similar problem several years ago, and went to a friend's chiropractor--one treatment and the pain was gone! Sure beat waiting for it to heal itself. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  6. I love those giraffes too, and suspect that if you are of a crafty nature you could make some pretty close copies yourself. Probably would look great made of some handmade papers.
