Passing Fancies: April 2014


As I write this post, a steady April shower is falling on New York.

Reading: MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood

Video: The new (and final?) season of Mad Men. I also finally got around to watching Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel.

Audio: For some reason I’ve been on an Elliott Smith kick lately.

Eats & Treats: KIND bars, especially Dark Chocolate, Sea Salt & Nuts and Dark Chocolate, Cherry & Cashew

Drinks: Ginger tea

Beauty Products: MineralFusion haircare for curly hair; I should write a review soon.


Art: “Bill Cunningham: Facades” at the New-York Historical Society. A must-see for anyone who loves fashion history or New York architectural history.

Pleasure: The first blooms on the flowering trees in Central Park

Anticipation: An upcoming short trip to a city I’ve never seen before

Worry: A self-imposed writing deadline that’s creeping up on me
