How to Party With an Infant by Kaui Hart Hemmings (the author of The Descendants). A single mother in San Francisco is working on a cookbook inspired by her life and the lives of her friends. It's witty, clever, and touching. Last week I finally made myself read Carrie Fisher's last book, The Princess Diarist. It feels unfinished and self-censored, and the saddest part is that there won't be a sequel.
This is an old favorite. Jesca Hoop also has a new excellent album, Memory Are Now.
Grimm is finally (FINALLY!) back for their final season. In between episodes we've been streaming Voyager for our escapism fill. The writing is painful at times, but I really like Captain Katharine Hepburn.
There's a new BBC documentary about the Brontë family. I hope it gets to Netflix or PBS soon.
Edward Bess- Spanish Veil. It's one of the best 2016 releases.
I can't stop reaching for the new Burberry blush I showed you last week, so I plan my looks around it.
Frequently Worn Outfit/Item
Black dresses in every fabric and length, with colorful accessories, sweaters, and interesting footwear. When I can actually be bothered to leave the house, that is. It's hibernating time around these parts.
We gave Blue Apron a try, since they have a vegetarian option and we wanted new dinner ideas. The groceries were fresh and high quality, and the recipes precise. The problem is that the high-protein food was too heavy and dense for our taste. I prefer my dinner with more broccoli or butternut squash than various extra proteins.
No kvetching and krechtzing tonight. I think I've spent all of them on the last few months.
The Blond fixed the problem that plagued the blog. Email and Facebook notifications are back, as are the related stories links. I was becoming desperate.
Valentine's Day. Corny, but it's one of my favorite days of the year.
Rag & Bone Classic Newbury Woven Leather Booties. I'm thinking spring.
You know a situation is dire when you can't find a fitting Yoda quote.
How are you? What's on your list of loves and banes? Any wishes and recommendations?
