Passing Fancies ~ January 2019

MFA Janvier.jpg

Reading: Emma Baxter-Wright, The Little Book of Schiaparelli. Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol.

Audio: All the songs from Lerner & Loewe’s My Fair Lady, after seeing the revival at Lincoln Center two weeks ago

Art: It’s all Frida Kahlo all the time right now.

Video: Parfum (Perfume), the new Netflix thriller series

Eats & Treats: One of my 2019 resolutions: healthy lunches. I have a Daily Harvest subscription and it’s working out well so far. (Curious? If you join DH before 1/31 using the referral code RE-B2AV9ML, you’ll get three free cups as an intro. I’ll get three free cups too! Just want to be clear about that, since I never do affiliate links.)

Drink: Coffee made with beans from The Sensuous Bean. Also, coffee-almond smoothies from Daily Harvest…see above.  😉

Garb: New earmuffs from Nirvanna Designs. Layers and layers of black (duh). A SNUG LIFE t-shirt (Christmas gift from Mr. PP). It’s winter.

Beauty Products: Carol’s Daughter Cactus Rose Water shampoo and conditioner (sulfate-free and silicone-free…smells good, too!)

Pleasure: The three-day weekend just gave me a chance to work on all my “extra-curricular” projects that are due SOON VERY SOON

Worry: See “Pleasure,” above!

  1. I’ll be curious to hear your thoughts on Perfume after you’ve finished watching it. I started reading the Suskind book after finishing the show. I’ve been meaning to read it for years and am loving it.

    • I’ve read the Suskind novel and then re-read it and still loved it! I might need to read it yet again after watching this show. Only halfway through right now…my goodness, it’s NOT suitable for everyone…but I like the thriller aspects of it and the weird “Secret History” vibe of the teens’ friendship.

      • Oh yeah, totally a Secret History friend group vibe. Another amazing book. Luckily I have a high tolerance, though the show is very explicit and dark, definitely not everyone’s cup of tea.
