Just bought and downloaded The Cuckoo's Calling by JK Rowling (as Robert Galbraith). I skipped her dreary first (adult) novel since the husband read it first and didn't really enjoy it, but I have a feeling that this is going to be very different.
Melody by Blond Redhead
The husband and I have developed a minor addiction to HGTV, and especially to " Love It Or List It". We have marathons of LIOLI than sit there fantasizing about home renovations. I also may have a small crush on Eddie the contractor.
Flor y Canto works wonderfully in the heat, but I'm also enjoying Pomelos by Jo Loves, Manomalia (Les Nez), and a drop of Fracas extrait de parfum before bed (not all of them together)
Lots of Laura Mercier. The new primer is fantastic. Also, tone-on-tone natural looking eye shadows, and all the cream blushes I have.
Jersey dresses. Can't wear anything else in the heat.
Homemade pizza. It was totally worth heating the oven to 500 degrees.
The weather. Miserable doesn't even begin to describe the heat and humidity we've had here for weeks, and there's no end in sight.
The royal baby, what else?
A vintage Missoni dress. It's not that I don't like my modern Missoni dresses, but there's something about the older dresses
1. So sad about Cory Monteith. While I lost interest in Glee after the first season, Cory was wonderfully talented. I looked forward to seeing him play characters over high school age.
2. Gummy vitamins for adults are the best thing ever. Why didn't I realize it ages ago?
What are your loves, banes, recommendations and thoughts these days? Please share!
