Wishing all of you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving as we move into the winter of this very strange year…
Please feel free to share your own current obsessions in the comments!
Reading: Elena Ferrante’s The Lying Life of Adults
Video: The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix
Audio: ‘Tis the season for Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, Lloyd Cole…moody, broody guys all around.
(Tr)eats: Some really incredible chestnut-and-bean soup from a local bakery-restaurant
Drinks: I recently enjoyed a cocktail that involved rosemary-infused tequila, pear juice, and St. Germain. It may be my last outdoors-dining drink for a while, so I really savored it (and the company of my fellow-drinker).
Garb: I now own two mask-chains. If there’s any new opportunity for a fashion accessory, I will seize it.
Beauty Products: Tarte Cosmetics just had a big sale. I like their “Foundcealer” (despite the dumb name), their stick concealer, and their brow gel. Got to keep up appearances on Zoom…
Pleasures: New collaborations. Old friends. Some good news that Mr. Professor recently received: a contract for his second book!
Plans: Decorate for Christmas over Thanksgiving weekend. Maybe actually send out some Christmas cards this year, for the first time in a few years…? Who knows!
