Reading: For something light, the 1930s mystery novel Death on the Cherwell by Mavis Doriel Hay
Video: We finished watching “The Crown” but haven’t moved on to anything else yet.
Audio: I’m listening to lots of Cocteau Twins albums I haven’t played in ages.
Drink: Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee. Also, plotting some hot mulled wine for an upcoming gathering.
Eats & Treats: Rose- and lavender-infused chocolates from Shane’s Confectionary.
Garb: A black down-filled coat. Now I look just like every other woman in NYC, but now I also understand why they’ve all been wearing these puffy coats for the past decade. It’s a game-changer. I didn’t realize how cold I really was until now.
Beauty Products: Lots of CeraVe and Aquaphor for dry, chapped skin. Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Tulip and Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Achiote to cheer up my face on cloudy winter days.
Pleasure: A recent weekend escape to Philadelphia with Mr. TC
Worry: Will I ever finish writing my Christmas cards?
Stray Thought: Yes, recent events on the world stage and national politics have been horrible, but 2016 was a good year in other ways.
