Passing Fancies ~ April 2020


Reading: I’m reading Colette’s Claudine novels for the first time.

Audio: Anna Sui’s latest Spotify contribution, a “Work from Home” playlist

Video: Better Call Saul. Also, using Netflix and Amazon to circle back to classic movies I haven’t seen in ages and ages, like The Eyes of Laura Mars.


Eats & Treats: Veggie flatbreads from Daily Harvest. No-bake chocolate-oatmeal cookies whipped up by Mr. Professor.

Drink: Some loose teas ordered from Palais des Thés, including Quatre Fruits Rouges and Caramel.


Garb: New pajamas from Uniqlo. My plague doctor necklace from Martha Rotten.

Beauty Products: Easy things… NARS tinted moisturizer. Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder. Laura Mercier Stickgloss in Rosewater.

Pleasure: Recent video chats with our old fragrance-friends group, including the Ohio contingent! I love these ladies.

Plans: Buy more fabric face masks for our eventual return to mass transit and the rest of the world. Keep taking vitamins and doing neti sinus rinses. Get more fresh air as the weather warms up.

Stay healthy, all!!
