I’ve been struggling with anxiety of late. The US elections ugliness has been draining. And a troll has popped up on my IG yet again. Actually, troll is too flattering a term, since Das Sound Machine called Anna Kendrick a troll in Pitch Perfect 2 and she’s quite lovely.
I’m trying really hard to focus on the positive things in the world.
It feels like the old J. Crew is back, at least in terms of style.
I’ve picked my Wish List from the new catalogue. I’d be very happy if Santa were to leave any of these items under the Christmas tree.
Have you been watching The Crown? I like it. I was not a huge Downton fan as I found it a little soft. If I want to watch a soap opera, I’ll go full Real Housewives (especially since Tinsley Mortimer is joining RHONY!). The Crown is more like Wolf Hall. I’m really enjoying it so far. I’m really looking forward to the development of Princess Margaret’s storyline: so much great material from which to draw. Plus, she always had terrific style.
I’m reading Alice Hoffman’s newest book, Faithful, which is terrific. I’m also rereading some upcoming picks for the 1010ParkPlace book club. Author Holly Robinson is an absolute delight and I’m looking forward to discussing Folly Cove next week.
Stephen Andrew Jones, who is a terrifically funny and soulful blogger, has a beautiful piece out called Celebrate Regardless. It’s a wonderful reminder as we head into the holiday season. I encourage you to head on over to his blog.
