Passing Fancies: December 2013

Screen Shot 2013-12-15 at 11.20.21 AM

Eats & Treats: Mostaccioli, Italian chocolate-coated ginger-spice cookies that our local Italian grocer only stocks around Christmastime!

Beauty Products: Laura Mercier Stick Gloss in Peony (I’m on a Laura Mercier kick)

Garb: Little fur scarves. I know, I know, there are reasons not to wear fur. But these were gifts, and I do love them so much in the winter.


Reading: Just to relax, I’ve been re-reading Beauty, Robin McKinley’s retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I loved this book when I was 12 years old, and now I’m realizing how much it has influenced me.

Video: Tonight I’m going to watch Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha on Netflix.

Art: Do you consider the department stores’ Christmas windows “art”? I do. Some of them, at least.

Music: Bing Crosby’s White Christmas and Frank Sinatra’s A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra. There is no substitute.

Pleasure: The completion of the museum exhibition and catalogue that I’ve been assisting with for the past year-plus.

Wish: Good reviews for the above.

Extra thought: Happy birthday to my brother!
