1| I started reading Big Little Lies last night and I can’t put it down. I was instantly hooked on the show from the first episode and decided to read the book before watching any more episodes. Books are usually better than their TV or movie adaptions and waiting a week between episodes was killing me. I have no doubt I will be done with the book before episode 3 airs.
2| I have a new favorite podcast – Missing Richard Simmons. I found it last week and after bingeing the 2 available episodes, I couldn’t wait for the 3rd one this week. You have to go listen to it, even if you think you don’t care about Richard Simmons. It follows a friend of Richard Simmons who is trying to find or get in contact with the eccentric fitness guru after Richard became a recluse in 2014. The podcast tells fascinating stories about Richard and it really sucks you into the mystery of why he suddenly retreated from everyone and everything he loved.
3| This week, while cleaning out some drawers I found my Foreo Luna that I thought I’d lost in our move two years ago. I was so excited to be reunited and start using it again. I’d forgotten what a great job it does of removing makeup.
4| After a long hunt, I finally found my perfect everyday lipstick shade! Native by Urban Decay is my lipstick soulmate and I hope they never discontinue it.
5| After spending a lot of time in airports over the last two months, I’ve seen a lot of travelers carrying the Herschel Supply Co. Little America Backpack and I’ve fallen in love. I realize it’s been out for years, but I live under a rock apparently. I currently carry a huge purse to fit all my stuff, and lugging it around on the train and walking around Midtown to work everyday isn’t ideal. This backpack would be a perfect alternative since it’s big enough for my all my crap while also looking a little more adult than a traditional Jansport style backpack. I’m waiting for the spring line to come out in hopes that they will have more feminine color options that don’t include florals. Fingers crossed.
