It’s Foodless Friday once again! Here’s what I’m:
Reading: The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. It’s all about Hemingway’s first wife, Hadley Richardson, whom you may have read about in A Moveable Feast. This book is a work of fiction, but written in her voice. I know NYT didn’t care much for it, but I am enjoying it thus far!
Watching: The Greatest. A lovely little movie with a phenomenal cast: Susan Sarandon, Carey Mulligan and Pierce Brosnan. Sarandon and Brosnan are a couple who are grieving and dealing with the loss of their elder son. Carey Mulligan (who plays the girlfriend of the son who died) enters their lives and helps them heal and re-build their family. It is as funny as it is poignant; but not as heavy on the heartstrings as, say a film like Rabbit Hole. The characters manage to be a little quirky; and that’s what sets it apart. Very nice indeed.
Wondering: How can anyone, even a cold-blooded vampire, be attracted to someone as vacuous as Bella Swan?
Wearing: Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin lipstick rouge cancan. Can you believe a friend who doesn’t wear makeup gave me a set of these lipsticks? Yeah. Now I know why it’s called satin!
Have a nice weekend!
