Just finished my yearly not-so-guilty pleasure, the new Liane Moriarty novel, Truly Madly Guilty. It was a bit gut-wrenching in a way that felt like an emotional manipulation, but I enjoy Moriarty's writing and the annual visit to Sydney and its suburbs.
As predicted last month, we binged on Orphan Black season 4 in one weekend. And can I just say how happy I am that the Olympics are over?
The acoustic version of Melt by Jones.
I've spent the last couple of days marinating in Arquiste's Fleur de Louis.
Mascara primers. All of a sudden I want lashes that touch my eyebrows. Also: powder foundations.
Frequently Worn Item/Outfit
Maxi dresses, long necklaces, wedge heels, one last hurrah of summer colors.
Brie. I love that Whole Foods specify which cheeses are made with a vegetarian rennet.
Petco's shipping. Slow and unreliable at best.
It's the little things. Laughing with my best friend until we're both breathless, kitten kisses, rediscovering an old gem in my perfume collection, my new favorite makeup brush (Koyudo Fu Pa #14), oh, and a husband who's unfazed by things beauty bloggers do.
My 20th wedding anniversary.
ACNE Studios Jensen booties in black grainy leather. If I only buy one item this fall/winter this should be it.
I'm actually sad about Gawker going away. While sometimes the site appeared to be all that's grating and aggravating in today's online media, it had its place. Gawker offered some good writing and clever snark, but the important thing is the way things came crashing down is simply wrong.
How are you? What's on your list of loves and banes? Any wishes and recommendations?
