Hello from paradise!
I’m sitting on my couch with a pumpkin cream cold brew, streaming House of Ho while a pumpkin praline-scented WoodWick candle crackles in the foreground. It was 70º when I took my walk this morning and I spent my lunch break bookmarking fall coats on Nuuly. My NYT Cooking widget has been showing me a recipe for cinnamon babka all day.
This is living.
My therapist would call this an “oasis of calm.” I would call this “the calm before the storm.” I got my combination Covid booster-flu shot this morning. My left arm freakin hurts, I’ve had a headache all day and I’m starting to get a little hot and sweaty despite the fact that I have the A/C on.
So in an effort to prolong this pumpkin oasis of peace (tragically, the initialism for that comes out to P.O.O.P.)….
Let’s look at some links!
I NEED this fuzzy checkerboard coat. Don’t sell it out before I can Nuuly it.
This Cup of Jo piece about crushing on Daryl McCormack totally gets it right. That accent! *sWOon*
Do you listen to The World’s First Podcast with Erin & Sara Foster? Well, you should. This is my favorite episode. It’s all about manifesting, healing and creating your own set of non-negotiables.
I really want to see Spin Me Round. This movie has it all: fake Olive Garden, Molly Shannon, Aubrey Plaza being sexy, Zach Woods (also being sexy), pasta, mystery, intrigue!
I love practicing these jaw massage techniques. I don’t know how NOT to clench my jaw so these intentional moments of relief are necessary — I lowkey need masseter botox (hmu if you know a good spa).
How do I convince my boyfriend to go in on these cool kitchen chairs with me?
These little ghost candles are too cute to light.
I love Jake Cohen’s challah recipe. He shares a bunch of tips on how to make the perfect challah here.
Imagine getting cozy under this positively MASSIVE blanket.
I want a new carry-on bag. After seeing 8 million TikToks about it, I think I’ve been influenced to get this one from Beis.
How cute are these pumpkin gnocchis?
I hope you’re embracing your inner fall queen. I’m enjoying being old and basic as hell.
Love you/talk soon/it’s 6pm and I’m falling asleep
