On My Mind

The Calm Before The Storm

This is the last quiet weekend before Thanksgiving prep and an exceedingly busy December take over my life. The Alex Katz: Gathering exhibition at the Guggenheim and the film The Banshees of Inisherin top my to-do list. In FT‘s fantastic Q&A with British Jewelry and interior designer Solange Azagury-Partridge, she shares that the Chanel Le Crayon Khôl is her beauty staple — this tidbit inspired me to up my holiday beauty game a notch. I recently posted on Chanel’s Noir Allure mascara, my new beauty staple.

  • I want to see that movie so much, but the closest place it’s playing is 2 hours away. That and the Katz show are a good reason for a weekend in NY. I’ve started wearing mascara too – I have a Lancome that I love, but maybe I’ll try the Chanel one as well. Do you ever wear lipstick?

  • Banshees is at the top of my movie list, love those two, especially together. Also love that mascara and I own many of the pencils ( Eros, brun agape and prune) although my favourite is the stylo ombré et contour. As a liner or shadow they’re fab. Especially love electric brown, rouge noir and beige (it’s more of a bronze). Another great multi purpose Chanel beauty item is the baume essentiel.
    Instead of the usual Thanksgiving my sister and I are heading to London Monday. I’ll be driving back across to Canada on the 24th so hopefully not too crazy.

  • I saw The Banshees of Isherin the other night. Really liked it. A bit dark and sad yet humorous at times. Colin Farrell was fantastic and the scenery amazing….

  • I wear the Hermes Beige Naturel on rare occasions. However, I have gifted it to many of my friends – the perfect small luxury and the color seems to suit most.

  • I saw “Banshees” last weekend at my local art theatre. Awesome movie. Funny and poignant. Beautiful scenery. Colin Farrell and Mad Eye Moody…what’s not to love?

  • Preston, I bought the Chanel mascara right after you posted about it. Absolutely love the brush and the formula. I’m guessing Solange’s jacket is an Indiana? Looks beautiful on her.
