Reading: Jean-Claude Ellena’s The Diary of a Nose: A Year in the Life of a Parfumeur

Video: The final season of “Lewis” on Channel 13

Audio: During the current heat wave, lots of cool- and shady-feeling music…Cat Power, Holly Cole, Elliott Smith

Art:  I’m hoping to see the Stuart Davis show at the Whitney this week.

Drink: Iced coffee by the gallon

Eats & Treats: Ripe tomatoes, blackberries, and peaches from our garden and the farmers market

Garb: My flat black espadrilles have gotten plenty of use this summer.


Beauty Products: Okay, so I finally succumbed to the siren call of ColourPop. Guess what? I really love their eye shadows and eye liners — fun, practical, inexpensive, and made in the USA.

Purchase: Sometimes it’s a hot August weekend and I end up buying fruity-smelling shower gels on sale at Bath & Body Works. So sue me.

Pleasure: A few “summer Friday” holidays

Worry: Mosquito bites

Stray Thought: In some ways I’m very similar to Lillian from “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”
