mad men


lately post

Lately I have… 

:: Tried orange lipstick – apparently the IT shade for summer. I really like this line from L’Oreal. The color isn’t overbearing & it’s really lightweight. 

:: Bought my first pair of Supergas. I’m not sure what took me so long. I’m in love! 

:: Threw a fit after the season finale of Mad Men. I was not prepared for an ending quite like that. Both heartbreaking & brilliant. Sad it’s over but I am thoroughly enjoying the theories being tossed around about the fate of Don Draper, Pete finding freedom in LA, the mysterious Bob Benson & the hope of a Sally Draper spin-off after the show ends for good next year. Zou bisou bisou…

:: Started a new book from my summer reading list. If you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for F. Scott Fitzgerald.

:: Bought a new sofa for the living room. B lived on it for the first 2 days so I’m finally getting to take a spin. And it’s dangerously comfy.

:: Met with my trainer to revamp my workout regimen. I had strayed away from my weekly workout schedule & the weight-loss hit a standstill. I’ve also started doing this this again in the mornings.

:: Jazzed up the patio with a few strands of lights & a set of lanterns. The ambiance makes the heat a little more tolerable.

I hope you’re enjoying this last week of June! It has flown by!

Affair of the Year

OH how I’ve missed these people!

They’ve dubbed this new season “Affair of the Year” & I have so many burning questions:

Is Don sliding back to his old womanizing ways?

What’s going on in Hawaii? 

Where did creepy Glen go?

 Whatever happened to Pete & Peggy’s baby? 

Will Pete finally go off the reservation? Let’s be honest, he was teetering on the edge last season…

I’ve been toying with plot lines in my head for months now in anticipation of Season 6 & I am super excited to see how things play out. So far, we’ve only been given a few imagesa trailer that, in true Matthew Weiner fashion, gives us zero clues.

Well, except that Betty has laid off the bugles, Pete is now sporting sideburns & Sally looks like she’s hit the Seconal again…

Set those DVRs! We’re just 11 days away!
