There's a Grace Kelly biography waiting for me.I'm still not in the mood for fiction.

I'll listen to anything as long as Martha Wainwright is singing it. And I can't wait for the new Rufus Wainwright album this week.

Frequently worn outfit/item
Floaty silk chiffon tops. As always, DVF makes the perfect ones.

Histoires de Parfums Tuberose #3 L'Animale. A perfect answer to all those anti-perfume perfumes. Jennifer Aniston should be forced to bathe in it.

Concealer is my friend.

I have very little appetite lately.

Give me my tea and nobody gets hurt.

Guilty Pleasure
Sleeping in.

Bane of my existence

Another nephew this summer.

Wish List
This John Delmatoff necklace:

My tolerance for hypocrisy, BS and people in general is at an all-time low. It's not necessarily a good thing.

How are you doin'? Please share your current loves, hates and thoughts.

  1. What is with the spelling of the Jennifer Aniston 'perfume'? I can't for the life of me understand buying a perfume to smell like you aren't wearing perfume.

    I'm enjoying the sun, but slathering on the sunscreen.

  2. Currently:
    book - Lermontov - Poems
    song - Khachaturyan's Waltz
    perfume - L'air du temps or Cristalle edt
    makeup - oncealer is my friend too
    food - baked potatoes
    drink - tea
    guilty pleasure - sleeping
    anticipation - Monday pancakes with strawberries date with my sister and cousine


  3. book- Machiavelli, The Prince & New York magazine (maybe this should be under guilty pleasures?)

    song- Los Campensinos!, Broken Hearbeats Sound Like Breakbeats (sounds like The Pixies and makes me happy)

    perfume- Eau d'Hermes & Guerlain, Tonka Imperiale sprayed on my bed before I sleep

    makeup- Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Sand. the best I've ever used.

    food- cough, coughnachoscough, cough

    drink- filtered tap water

    guilty pleasure- see food, above. and toffifay

    bane- isolation from other humans

    anticipation- working off my guilty pleasures at the gym

    i turn 40 in a week. this feels weird.

  4. Is it just me or does everyone want to smack Jennifer Aniston? Probably it's just me.


    Very Crabby


    Way too much of it

    Guilty Pleasure:

    Being crabby


    Pedicure and watching The Thomas Crown Affair while my toes dry

    Perfume: Brillante (Cartier)

    Book: Girls of Riyadh - weirdly fun.


  5. That necklace is gorgeous!

  6. I agree about the BS! currently loving Martha too! and Rufus! and Laura Marling, Apres L'Ondee, La Tulipe, Annina Vogel jewellery, Kauo Ishiguro's short story book Nocturnes, spring days and sandals- oh and Grey's anatomy as a guilty pleasure!

  7. Yay the Wainwrights! I love Martha's Factory and pretty much everything else she's ever done. Did you hear her version of Stormy Weather? Just gorgeous!

    And I had no idea Rufus was coming out with a new album this week!! ACK. So exciting!

    Currently: waiting for Luckyscent to send my much-anticipated Aqaba. I'm sure I'm doing other things too, but it FEELS like I'm just WAAAAITING. Sigh!

  8. Jenny Aniston SHOULD bathe in HdP L'Animale. I love that stuff and I do NOT love NONPERFUME perfume. Why bother? Take a shower and be done with it.

    I love that necklace. Very nice.
