Reading: Jeffrey Eugenides’s short story collection, Fresh Complaint

Video: The second season of Stranger Things and both seasons of The Good Place. I’m still basically housebound, and TV is my friend!

Audio: Lots of Spotify playlists, heavy on the 70s and 80s. Looking forward to Bjork’s new album.


Art: The recent death of pioneering art historian Linda Nochlin inspired me to go back and read some of her essays on women artists (still a timely topic).

Drink: A thoughtful friend recently gifted me with some coffee from NJ’s own Rook Coffee…so good!

Eats & Treats: Lately, um, chocolate croissants. Mood-elevating.

Garb: Still rocking my glamourous home-with-a-broken-ankle look, but now that autumn has finally arrived, I’ve added a big Norwegian wool sweater over the yoga pants and t-shirts and single sneaker.

Beauty Products: See above…but there have been a few “minimal makeup” days involving H is for Love Lip Glacé (a natural tinted lip balm) and IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream (works like a sheer foundation on me)

Pleasure: I have two new projects in the works… one art history-related, one perfume-related. Fingers crossed, and more details to come.

Worry: Learning to walk on two feet again. Wish me luck with the ongoing healing and eventual physical therapy!


I hope your own November has been peaceful and productive.
