I enjoyed- and savoured- every page of M.F.K. Fisher’s The Gastronomical Me. Her observations are sensuous, witty and sharp, and the way she writes about love- both found and lost- cuts right to the heart. I wish I could’ve shared a meal (or at least a plate of oysters) with her, together exploring the measure of our powers. 🖤
Because it’s been a while, here are a few other things I’ve been obsessed with lately:
GENTLEMAN JACK. Oh, my god. I’m obsessed with Suranne Jones as Anne Lister. It’s borderline unhealthy.
My heart broke – and soared – reading this Vanity Fair piece on Selma Blair’s struggle with MS. She’s such an inspiration and I adore the idea of her and Parker Posey cackling together over bougie LA lunches. Please please invite me, ladies…
I’m a big fan, HUGE, of Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova’s Youtube show, UNHhhh. I need to hold myself back from sending episodes to all my friends because honestly, is there anything more stressful then being sent a 20 minute clip of something from a friend like oh my god, Janet, do you really think I have time to spend watching this trash????? I have a life!!
I bought a pair of Freedom Moses sandals in Mykonos blue and would like to tell you that they are GOOD. I feel like it’s been ages since I had a pair of shitty kick-around sandals (I’m morally opposed to flip-flops sorry/not sorry) and these fit the bill perfectly.
Though I don’t want to call myself a creative person, per se, I’m desperate to make my own little infographic of my daily routine à la this list of Daily Routines of Creative People. But honestly, if we could make a list featuring modern day badass female creatives, I’d be much much more interested. Who wants to make that happen?
WIMBLEDON. Obviously. Wimbledon season is my favourite season and while it’s a cruel joke that I got tonsillitis for, like, the entirety of the first week of play, I’m doing my best this week to soak up as much tennis as possible. I know it’s sooooo boring but I’d love to see Federer and Serena both win another one. 🤞🏼
And other than wanting to propose to Megan Rapinoe, that’s about all for now! Now that I’m done galavanting around the globe (lol Minnesota and France being “the globe”), and being sick (fingers crossed!), I’ll be spending more time here. How exciting!
