F A L L Reading List

November 4, 2016 § Leave a comment


2016 has been a strange year for America but an incredible year for books.  I am  awe-struck by the poetry releases this year (namely: Monica Youn’s Blackacre, Safiya Sinclair’s Cannibal, and Solmaz Sharif’s Look. ) and fiction releases have been suuuuuuper exciting as well (Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad, Brit Bennett’s The Mothers).  It’s raining books not written by white men! « Read the rest of this entry »

The sun has finally arrived! I spent my Friday morning reading for two hours in bed. I can’t remember the last time I was so  caught up in a book I didn’t bother to rise for coffee… That’s a summer weekend at its best. May your days be long and your reading glasses be near.

JulyReads15 JULY IS HERE. I’m not sure about yours (watermelon slices? tropical beaches? babysitting?), but mine is mostly busy. Very busy.  I’m returning stateside and doing as much as I possibly can before moving to New York. That means seeing lots of loved ones in different cities, labeling boxes, crying, etc… But it’s summer, so when ‘go to the cabin‘ falls on the same to-do list as ‘find an apartment’, it’s hard to complain. I’m simplifying, “Oh shit I have to learn the NYC subway,” by getting out of my own head. Meaning I’m reading a lot. If you’re busy or not, these books are basically begging to go to the pool with you. THE LINE-UP: « Read the rest of this entry »

Que the Little Drummer Boy’s Drum Roll…

For Christmas I asked for the fuzzy alarm clock from Gilmore Girls and a therapist. But here’s a list of things I think are amazing that might be worth considering if you’re still searching for gifts to wrap. IMG_6313

Fifteen things I’m almost obsessed with:

1. Coffee Subscription from Stumptown Roasters. Brilliant.

2. Gold Heart Studs.

3. My Aunt makes these cornflake wreath treats every Decemeber and we all go bananas. Here‘s a recipe (not hers).

4. Perfume. Tom Ford for the win- complex scents in really, really pretty bottles.

5. This candle.

6. A copy of Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca. With Hitch’s film. The best and the best.

7. Book wishlist is never ending, but Olena Kalytiak Davis’s The Poem She Didn’t Write and Other Poems is the one I’m looking forward to most this season.

8. This Marni shirt. Ruler of all strange, expensive t-shirts.

9. Diptyque Lip Balm.

10. Whiskey. From Oban. With Love.

11. These Arctic Explorer ornaments.

12. Bach Flower Remedy in Wild Oat…and cherry plum, chicory, elm, honeysuckle, star of Bethlehem, the list goes on.

13. Nail polish that is so light pink it looks like nothing.

14. This fuzzy clutch, also light pink, which is everything.

15. White high-top converse. But not just any white high-top converse. Leather.

Happy gift giving! Give more, take less, and be happy with everything. Like the oven mitt. That’s what makes it fun.

“London returns in damp, fragmented/ flurries/ when I should be doing something else.” From Chelsea Rathburn’s poem English Sonnet. Fitting to say the least.  Here’s a handful of images. Here’s a city I liked.

Go Away. Or Don’t.

October 26, 2014 § Leave a comment

Today marks a week of straight of nonstop wind and water and sporadic bouts of sunlight that vanish in about two whole minutes.


We’re officially rained in here in Oban. Ferries have cancelled. A boat named The Elizabeth washed up on the bay in the wrong spot. I’m not sure if my umbrella is an appendage or just a lost cause. BUT WHAT ELSE ARE SUNDAYS FOR? I’ve written a rained-in recommendation list for you nice readers. Don’t act like it isn’t comforting to be trapped indoors when it’s cold.
