it’s madcap crazy here. the neighborhood candy was finally purchased last night and half of it is already gone.

unfortunately this year i don’t have priscilla to blame. 

what are you plans for this hallow’s eve? will you be costuming? if so, please share.

treats and tricks to you m’loves.

dark & stormy

October 29, 2012

my heart is with all of those bracing for miss sandy and her full moon, stormy antics.

be safe my darlings. 

you can watch the hurricane, live, from the 51st floor of the new york times building, in manhattan, on this web cam.

for those of you trying to wrap your mind around sandy’s 900 mile storm front, this dark & stormy recipe from the morris kitchen is the perfect antidote to combat anxieties over power outages and frustrations of cabin fever. nothing like dark rum and fresh lime to quell one’s nerves, and keep that game of gin rummy rousing. 

stay cozy with these gorgeous 100% recycled cotton blankets from the loop collection. i have my eye on one of these for christmas. i can’t decide which is my favorite though. i should probably just ask priscilla which one she’s least likely to eat, and proceed from there. 

nothing like a storm to get you in the mood to curl up cat-like with a good book. i like books to coincide with the seasons. if it’s fall i want to read something that’s typically darker or more historical; victorian even. the night circus is all of that and with cheesecake for dessert. if you haven’t read it {i feel like i’m the last one to this circus} you should grab a copy. magic, seduction, ghosts, love, late nineteenth century europe and new york—book me a first class ticket please. 

here is the author’s playlist to accomodate your reading. i must say, the playlist is delicious! some of the songs i own, but the ones i didn’t, i purchased immediately. they’re the perfect, autumnal, moody hymns for this time of year. 

but truly, stay safe m’loves. hatches battened down, loved ones held tight. stay inside.



weekend happy

October 26, 2012

friday disco balls to you m’loves. have you been shakin’ your groove thang properly all week-long?

it seems my mondaytuesdaywednesdaythursday took a handful of steroids and downed them with a 5-hour energy shot {which now comes in a pink bottle in honor of october’s breast cancer awareness month-because if anything is NOT going to give you cancer it’s 5 hour energy shots???}

days flew fast, sweaty, pumped up, and at times even a little guido: a run in with a rude, entitled newport beach, bentley driving, 12 carat doning varmint at trader joes on wednesday, had me giving the girls on jersey housewives a run for their “stick this in your piehole” money. i didn’t throw a table or even raise my voice, miraculously i even refrained from using profanity {there is a god,} but my disdain and disapproval could not be reined in witnessing such rude and childish behavior from what appears at first glance to be an adult. one of my top 5 rules: be nice to grocery checkers, treat them like they decide the fate of your next food poisoning.

oh and my heavy-handedness yesterday with the bronzer had me looking a bit…..

less than x-chromosomal and more clark kent. 

i must get a better light in that bathroom, lest this bronzer debacle happen again. and you’re welcome, i cropped out much of the breakfast-losing body shot. see? i take care of you.

this weekend i will rectify my hyped up, joe guidice, veins popping through my neck week with a languid, peace be with you as long as you’re sweet, kind, and you walk your talk, type of weekend. but who are we kidding—i’m a total pushover and a sucker for all types of dogs at the pound. i’ll still offer you a bone even if you do snarl and growl at me. 

this saturday i’m celebrating the engagement of dear friends, there will be some halloween mischief with little ones, and forehead to forehead QT with a beast or two on sunday. 

tell me my tootsie pops, what is on your weekend agenda?

see you on the other side of sunday m’loves.
