Passing Fancies ~ March 2017


Reading: Re-reading Patrick Suskind’s novel Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. Enjoying it even more this time.

Video: Finally watched the last few episodes of Black Mirror.

Audio: Inspired by a recent New Yorker article about Jack White, lots of White Stripes.

Drink:  Guinness for St. Patrick’s Day

Eats & Treats: Irish soda bread (see above)


Garb: I always say I’m going to swear off “fast fashion,” but then I get sucked back in by something like a black denim jacket with Chinoiserie embroidery on the back. (Darn you, H & M.)

Beauty Products: Eye shadow, eye liner, and brow mascara from Kiko Cosmetics. Impressive duplicates of products from Laura Mercier, Urban Decay, and Glossier, for less than half the price.

Pleasure: A new ultrasonic essential oil diffuser for scenting my home

Worry: The increasingly unpredictable weather

Stray Thought: It’s time to tidy up my home desk again.
