Time for a mid-month check-in!

Reading: Just about to finish Kurban Said’s Ali and Nino, from a recent Boxwalla “book box.”

Audio: I’m hooked on Slicing Up Eyeballs’ 1980s playlists on Spotify. The “100 Best of Songs of 1980” may be my favorite one.

Art: Jewelry: The Body Transformed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Video: Mr. PP and I just tore through “The Bodyguard” (the BBC television series, not the Whitney Houston/Kevin Costner motion picture!) on Netflix.

Eats & Treats: I’m sort of obsessed with Pret a Manger’s Coconut Chicken & Sweet Potato Box

Drink: Vietnamese coffee (the hot version, for fall/winter!)

Garb: Warm, drape-y cardigans. Ankle boots. Sparkly little black barrettes.

Beauty Products: Lipstick Queen’s Nothing But the Nudes lipstick in Hanky Panky Pink

Pleasure: Recent participation in The Perfumed Plume’s panel discussion on fragrance and writing. More perfume-related activities on the horizon ahead! Stay tuned…

Worry: This week’s early first snowstorm could be a sign of a hard winter, and the city’s and transit agencies’ total failure to cope with it was alarming.
