I love the big Sunday newspaper.
We are, presently, punishing the newspaper company, having dropped our nearly 30 year subscription.
And why? Because they stopped sending us the magazines. A capital offense as some weeks that's all I want to read.
But this morning we went out for iced coffee and a trip to the hardware store so I bought it at our shitty Starbucks. Want to know why it's a shitty Starbucks? It was 8:00am and we waited for coffee whilst the rather large staff seemed to chat and loaf. My order was about to be made hot, the barista dropped K's cup on the floor and two people behind me got their coffees before I did.
But enough complaining.
Let's look at some little tips from the paper, shall we?
I LOVE men's lace-ups with a skirt! Happily, I have just the skirt and shoes to put this together.
I think I could put this together too. Let's ignore the prices here, okay?
Red! Suits me!
Skip the blush? Fine.
Since I've let my hair go white I am in great need of lipstick. My face is otherwise colorless.
Surprisingly affordable. I like the idea of a tint over a lipstick. My present lipsticks feel a little heavy and seems to wear off very quickly.
The snood! I like it...but I have a little problem as I wear over-ear headphones on my way to work and no longer manage a hat with them. This might work, though.
I love this wall color and the art.
At first I was intrigued by this bathroom. Now I do believe it is one big cliche. And someone needs to wash the outside of that tub.
In an article about writers and their work spaces there was this photo of Jhumpa Lahiri.
I had the lovely opportunity to hear Ms. Lahiri read a couple of years ago and complimented her at a cocktail party after the event. She was like a small, startled animal and I think I freaked her out.
I am STILL considering Eileen Fisher. I've fallen in love with a pair of boots they sell (which I cannot afford) and I am drawn to everything they sell (which I cannot afford).
It's a beautiful Sunday - I hope you are enjoying it.
