I’ve been stocking up on the essentials (sparkling wine and cheese) and getting ready to launch myself into the holiday season with great aplomb. This coming week I’ll wrap up my studio work, we’ll welcome family from abroad, and celebrate the marriage of David’s youngest son. It’s going to be brilliantly full-on and I’m excited to shave my legs for the first time in ages, don some festive frocks and enthusiastically shoulder-shimmy into official Chrimbo celebrations. But first! A few things to note from this past week:
I know I have like 400 black turtlenecks already but I’d really like for this one from DAI to join my collection. That perfectly tight sleeve is giving me life. ✨
I’ve been mainlining the Last Seen podcast by WBUR which does a deep-dive into wtf happened during the 1990 art heist at my favourite museum, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. It’s a fascinating investigation and still SO BONKERS THAT (spoiler alert) NONE OF THE ARTWORKS HAVE EVER RESURFACED.
Thinking about making #BeMoreJVN my 2019 resolution. Following his figure skating lessons is one of the greatest joys on the internet. The fact that he’s learning something totally new in his early 30s makes me want to challenge myself to start something I’ve been putting on hold for far too long in the New Year. Such a good reminder that it’s never too late, henny!
Tat-spiration has been coming at me hard and fast via the ‘gram. I really want to pull the trigger on getting inked next year but guys, I’m still super scared of making my mom mad. 😬
I happy-sobbed my eyes out watching Dumplin’ last night. Dolly Parton, drag, and a seriously heartwarming message. I stan.
The photo in this post is one of my favourites from this year. You you care to, you can see more from the shoot.
