EauMG’s September 2015 Favorites

The temperatures were milder in September so I ventured out of my A/C bunker a few times. Overall, it was a chill month.

I visited a few museums but still not as many as I wanted. Since moving here, museums are one of my new hobbies. I went to a few drag shows and got to see Seattle’s “jift” to the world, Dina Martina. I sort of joked that wherever we live has to have a Chinatown, a… Continue reading | 15 Comments

EauMG’s August 2015 Favorites

Manhattan
Manhattan from a good side.

August was one of those months that felt like it was just dragging along. I was so over the heat and was sick of hiding away in my A/C bunker. I felt guilt for being hostile towards summer when I know winter is going to be terrible but really, summer is abusive and I’m going to complain. As the kids says these days, “Sorry not sorry”.

October, which is usually one of my favorite months, started out rather inspiring. I felt renewed and ready to take on anything. The weather was rather mild and I got outdoors and did stuff.

And then I received terrible news that my grandmother had passed, a week after my visit to Tennessee. She was one of my favorite people, a humorous, sassy ruby-red-lipstick-wearing sort of broad that could cook like no other. She was someone… Continue reading | 27 Comments

EauMG’s Favorites August 2014

August was a pretty good month. We celebrated our tenth year wedding anniversary. So, I’ve found a human that I can live with and it lasted a decade. I hear that is a big deal.

In other news, when I fall off the wagon, I really fall off. I ended up splurging on Amore Pacific Cushion Compact and some other cosmetics, two Helmut Lang dresses, a pair of Ted Baker boots (the lining features French… Continue reading | 10 Comments
