|Autumn Colors by Alexei Butiriskiy|
I'm in the middle of another Laura Ingalls Wilder biography, but have also started a couple of other books, including Mandy Aftel's Fragrant, and The Viceroy's Daughters (about the Curzon sisters,upon recommendation of the wonderful Kafkaesque), and I need to read Cary Elwes' Princess Bride memoir (As You Wish) before the Husband tells me every last anecdote.
Kate Bush- Breathing.
1980, Kate in a bubble/womb, singing of death, rebirth, her mother, and the end of the world. And look at her makeup.
I'm actually enjoying Once Upon a Time again. I thought they jumped the shark a couple of seasons ago (but kept watching anyway, mostly for Robert Carlyle's performance), but suddenly the show managed to find its voice an an emotional hook (no pun intended. Honestly. But it does work).
I'm more than a little obsessed with Alexis Karl's work. I had a chance to test her next project, named Poetry of Longing, and I can't wait to get a bottle. It's a super limited release, centered around chocolate, but completely different than her stunning Body Made Luminous.
So many palettes, so little time. But mostly, I'm really into blush these days. I separated my blushes into two drawers, one for creams and one for powders, so things are much more streamlined and accessible. As a result, I'be been playing with some of my older Chanel and Lancome blushes and loving them dearly.
Mango. And more mango. Also mac& cheese made with a lot of Gorgonzola dolce.
Frequently Worn Outfit/Item
I'm living in head-to-toe cashmere until the new furnace is installed.
Long chat with dear friends. No guilt at all, even when we get snarky.
Totally baneless, and I thank the wonderful Eileen for the frequent reminders. And bonus:
Pippa (cat, not Middleton) has becomes increasingly cuddly and loving. She used to be the more aloof out of the triplets, but now she's finally into this snuggling thing. And she seems to favor me, which is nice considering you need a crowbar to pry Marigold and Gemma from the husband.
Ordering a second pair of glasses. Fuchsia, this time (my other one is brown+Tiffany blue). Obviously, I'm easily amused (and also becoming a bat).
A pair of statement shoes for fall/winter. Still searching.
I think I might take up needlework again.
How are you doing? Please share your loves, banes, recommendations, and thoughts.
