#BreakThings: Feuille Morte
We went from summer to fall in the span of a week. I usually love this time of year, but everything is a downer right now. So much uncertainty. So much tumult. So much fear. So let’s breakthrough the static, and inject a bit of joy into our day.
Meet Tanqueray. Her incredible life story is being told in 32-parts by Humans of New York to raise money for her care. I am captivated by it. Every time they post an update, I just want another and another and another.
These Parker House rolls with Salted Honey Butter are so good that I would not advise baking them unless you have four people living in your house, or can invite guests to dinner, or can give some to a neighbor. Because one turns into two turns into 10.
I love the quilted pattern and longer length on this year’s J.Crew vest. This rust color would be lovely with camel and ivory. The navy is also a stunner. And it’s 50% off today with code COZY. Also available in plus-size.
Apple released iOS 14 recently with features that allow users to customize the icons, colors and setup of their home screen. This Vox article compared the personalization frenzy to personalizing your MySpace page (yes, we are that old). The article explains how the customizations work and gives links to tutorials that will let you personalize your setup. Bye, bye, afternoon productivity.
My cousin turned me onto the National Gallery of Art’s Instagram page. It’s a nice way to get your culture fix when so many of the museums are closed.
Best.news.ever: The Great British Bakeoff is back on Netflix. Prepare to watch Britain’s best bakers face off in competition to see whose cakes, biscuits and bread are tops. Sadly they’re only releasing one episode at a time, so no bingeing, but I’m just so glad it’s back.
Then, a stubborn patch of acne appeared on my cheek. Three masks later, the patch is gone, my blackheads are gone, and my pores are blissfully smaller. And my forehead wrinkles are relaxed, like a actually hydrated and got enough sleep. It’s definitely worth a try.
