Passing Fancies ~ October 2018


Reading: Catching up on my New Yorkers, and just starting Ali and Nino by Kurban Said.

Audio: The soundtrack from “A Star is Born” (with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper) on Spotify. No shame.

Art: “It’s Alive! Frankenstein at 200 at the Morgan Library

Video: Inspired by the above, planning to re-watch Ken Russell’s Gothic (1986)

Eats & Treats: Everything pumpkin spice!!!! Yes, I’m kidding. I’m not really a fan.

Drink: Ginger tea

Garb: Knee-length print Uniqlo dresses (via eBay) with black tights and black flats

Beauty Products: I’m coveting a NARS eyeshadow named Ashes to Ashes, for obvious reasons. And I’m enjoying a few new nail polishes that were press freebies from Sinful Colors’ Halloween collection (not an affiliate link! just sharing this for info). My favorites: Bad Witch and Spellbound.

Pleasure: The latest addition to our household: Gowanus (“Gus” for short), an orange-and-white kitten we just adopted from Cat Republic. Welcome, Gus!

Displeasure: My current run-down state, the result of several concurrent (and stressful) deadlines plus a bad cold. Trying to bring myself (gently) up to speed.
