make-believe: spring sleep.

March 31, 2022

Wake me up when it’s warm. Until then I’ll be daydreaming about spending the day in bed, devouring a good book, huffing as many flower-scented things as I can get my hands on, and generally plotting my springtime reemergence. (Or ogling the highlighter-heavy cheeks and empire waists on Bridgerton, whichever suits my fancy.)

This regency style nightgown.

A new novel (available for preorder now!) to dream about.

Luxurious sheets for sleeping in.*

Lilac hand cream for at least smelling like the season I’m waiting on.

Petal pink socks for good measure.**

An everything stick, for lips or eyes or anything I want.***

And a little luminescence for a bit of that Bridgerton-inspired glow.****



In an effort to ground this make-believing in something a bit more down to earth, here’s something else to support:

Today is International Transgender Day of Visibility. In light of rising efforts to pass legislation that targets trans youth across the country, money raised through Ariana Grande’s Pledge to Protect and Defend Trans Youth will support organizations providing direct services and advocacy for trans youth in places where their rights are being threatened. Text PLEDGE to 707070 to make a donation or donate directly via the link above. Grande will be matching today’s donations up to $1.5 million.

Head to Trans_Week for further action items, including contacting state legislators, learning more, and donating to individual organizations directly.

    Thank you for introducing me to Paper Cosmetics! I ordered the Everything Stick and it really is everything. I can’t stop using it (and smelling it). I have a few refills of my low-waste deodorant left, but would be interested to try Paper’s deodorant once those run out, because I just love the idea of compostable packaging. Always appreciate your recommendations — we’re also an East Fork household now, thanks to you.
