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!
