I've mostly been reading photography books again and can't say that I'm enjoying it very much. The truth is that I don't like the technical aspects of taking good pictures. I need to read something fun.
Every night I fall asleep listening to Echoes, the late night public radio show. We actually have a subscription that allows continuous play all through the night. The music is great, quite eclectic and varied, all with a dream quality (you can find it on echoes.org).
Grimm has never been better. Oh, and Tim Gunn's new show started great.
I'm wearing vintage Diorissimo today, but it doesn't hit the spot at all. I should have gone with my first instinct which was Sous le Vent. Or maybe Musc Tonkin.
Curled lashes and lots of mascara.
Frequently Worn Item/Outfit
Cashmere dresses, especially my favorite one in teal. It has a deep(ish) v-neck and a well defined waist that I sometimes accentuate with a belt.
Strawberry jam. The funny thing is that I never even liked strawberry jam until recently; I'm more of a sour cherry, apricot or bitter orange person, and strawberry has always been too sugary sweet for me. But all of a sudden I love it, especially on a well-buttered toast.
Eclairs. The one I had yesterday was beyond sinful: creme patissiere over a layer of strawberry preserve (see? it's everywhere), fresh strawberries, and whipped cream. Heaven.
Trying to maintain a semblance of order in my dressing room. Beauty products seem to multiply when I'm not looking, and since I've turned into my mother in recent years, clutter makes me lose my mind.
Conquering most of the mess I mentioned above over the weekend.
The Elements Show in early February. Less for the show itself and more for the friends who are coming from out of town.

A Pierre Hardy colorblock clutch or small bag. Actually, anything Pierre Hardy, but I do need a bag in this size, and I'm very much in love with this particular design.
The end of football season cannot come soon enough.
