Passing Fancies ~ December 2020

December? Seriously, how did this happen? Bundle up…take good care of yourself…and feel free to share your own current obsessions in the comments.

Reading: Re-reading lots of Shirley Jackson short stories and Dickens’s A Christmas Carol.

Video: Re-watching “Wolf Hall” so I can finally read the latest Hilary Mantel novel.

Audio: Some Christmas standards, but also lots of classic glam rock.

(Tr)eats: Japanese takeout from a new place in our neighborhood.

Drinks: Real hot chocolate.

Garb: Brrr, it got cold out. In the evenings I’ve been wearing leggings and a staff logo sweatshirt that I brought home from my workplace. That’s how things have devolved around here lately. Well, I still manage to look presentable for video meetings and trips out of the house, at least…

Beauty Products: LUSH Lord of Misrule shower gel (black pepper, vanilla, patchouli).

Pleasures: The cats’ whole-hearted and reckless enjoyment of our Christmas decorations.

Plans: Take a few days off. Do some cleaning and organizing. Spend New Year’s Eve video-visiting with our usual circle of local friends; the best we can do, for now!

  1. I’ve got Lord of Misrule in my shower too. My scented shower products are on point right now because this month I cracked open my two year old bottle of Flying Fox and my bar soap is Bruno Fazzolari Black Suede.

    My wardrobe currently revolves around staying warm too. I ordered sweatpants for the the first time in many years, bought a few sweatshirts, and am otherwise staying cozy during work hours in oversized sweaters.

    • Isn’t LoM perfect for chilly days? Ah…Flying Fox, what a gorgeous jasmine, almost animalic (appropriately enough).

      Right now I’m wearing some Uniqlo “loungewear.” Can’t beat it for a chilly night at home…which most/all nights are these days?!

      Be well, S!
