Reading: I finally acquired a copy of The Perfume Companion by Sarah McCartney and Samantha Scriven. It’s educational, entertaining, and clever (but never cruel).
Audio: Autumn is always the right time for Nick Drake.
Video: It’s the “spooky season” and I just watched Poltergeist after…how many years? In retrospect, it’s messy but still offers a few legitimate chills.
Tr(eats): Apple cider doughnuts.
Drinks: I was recently on hot chocolate streak for a few days.
Beauty Products: I’ve been trying a few things from a new cosmetics brand named Flyte.70. I should try to write a review, although they’re not fragrance products! Ceremonia Guava Beach Waves spray as a final styling step for my hair.
Garb: Lately I just want to wear black lace every day…sometimes a little, sometimes a lot.
Pleasures: A new phone, after being overdue for an upgrade for two or three years. New glasses that look and feel even better than my old ones.
Plans: An off-season beach weekend. A flu vaccine and a Covid booster!
