Passing Fancies ~ October 2019


Reading: Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, a favorite of my pre-teen and teen years that I haven’t revisited in a very long time.

Audio: Blondie.

Video: A documentary about Studio 54 on Netflix.

Art: Recently I’ve looking at ancient perfume containers from Ancient Egypt. Art AND perfume!

Eats & Treats: Hoping to get back to local restaurant Bread & Salt soon…all the rave reviews and word-of-mouth have made it a little too popular.

Drink: Non-caffeinated “lattes” from Daily Harvest.

Garb: A black embroidered velvet coat for this transitional season.

Beauty Products: This is going to be a red-lipstick autumn for me. My favorites right now: Lipstick Queen Well Red and NARS Dressed to Kill.

Pleasure: Fall weather and cozy cats.

Plan: Some train travel coming up this fall. Lots of good reading. Halloween festivities!
