This weekend, my mom and I are heading to Minnesota to visit Jamie and Kevin! Meanwhile, my Dad and my brother Kyle are heading up to Ann Arbor for the Michigan-Notre Dame football game. Lucky them. Also, GO BLUE! Here are a few things to keep in mind this weekend…
20 grown-up grilled cheeses. Beer-battered grilled cheese? Yes please. (yes, that rhymed).
Looking to overhaul your makeup look for autumn? Allure covers 8 sexy fall makeup colors. Pumpkin orange did not make the cut. There is always next year!
Darn, Slate did not like the new Salinger documentary. That is a pity–I was curious about it. I do think though that it seems invasive to have an entire documentary about a notoriously private writer. What always impressed me most about Salinger is that he let his work speak for itself. No long-winded biography or photo accompanies his books.
HBO’s fantastic miniseries Parade’s End (starring a spellbinding Rebecca Hall and Benedict Cumberbatch in some of the best acting I have seen) comes out on DVD on September 10th! If you are suffering from Downton Abbey withdrawal and want some WWI-era drama, you may want to check it out.
Neko Case’s new album is out! I have not listened to all of it yet, but I will give a review when I do!
Patti Smith circa 1976…Don’t just think of her this weekend. Think of her always. In related news, can I be her for one day? Or at least steal one iota of coolness from her? Pretty please? I promise to return it.
