Stuff I Like: Listening, Wearing, Burning, Updating

Time for more Stuff I Like! Let's get this party started:

This Audiobook That Is SO FREAKING GOOD
Look, it's no secret that Ronan Farrow is just the best and Catch and Kill is a really damn good book about his exposing the sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein and the lengths to which NBC was willing to go to cover it up. You probably know all that. I am here to tell you that the audiobook is the way to go if you haven't read this yet (or even if you have!) Ronan has an excellent voice for it and he does all the accents, which is...just adorable. There's no other word for it. I can't recommend this enough.

This Lipstick That Is Quite Cheering
I got this full-sized Tarte Color Splash lipstick in Yachting (the one on the left) in my November Allure box and it is now my favorite winter lipstick. It's a very pigmented lipstick but doesn't make my lips feel dry. Yachting is a fairly intense berry color but sheers out nicely with some blotting and gloss on top if you don't want a Serious Lip. I am kind of enjoying the intensity of it right now, tbh.

These Fancy Candles That Are Half The Price of Diptyque
Y'all know Marianne and I both love our fancy candles but man, Diptyque are SO expensive that it's pretty rare that I buy one. Recently I had a tipsy ole time at Need Supply and discovered Maison Louis Marie candles. They are really nice candles and the large size is $34 (the same price as a mini Diptyque.) The scents are luxurious and complex without being overpowering. I bought L’Etang Noir - an oriental fragrance with a tobacco flower top note enhanced by a rich spice blend of vanilla, anise, nutmeg, ginger & clove. Marianne was immediately like, I WANT ONE and she bought Bois de Balincourt - a sandalwood fragrance with a dominant cedarwood & sandalwood accord supplemented by a spicy cinnamon nutmeg complex with an earthy vetiver note.

Update - These Internet Vitamins I Still Love
I am now on my fourth (adorable) box of Care/of vitamin packs and I STILL LOVE THEM SO MUCH. Apparently the only way to make me take vitamins consistently is to package them up individually with my name on them. Also, I love the app! The Care/of app sends me a reminder every morning and also gives me "carrots" to use towards discounts and free stuff. My current selection (per the quiz) is working great and I've just added an elderberry supplement to ward off all the gross winter germs. If you're tempted to try Care/of you can use my code AATKQC to get up to $40 off your first order! (I also get a carrot credit.)


  1. Catch and Kill is my favorite book of the year and the way he calls Jon Lovett Jonathan really tickles me.

  2. Just added his audiobook to my library app hold shelf. I have been waiting for it to be added! I love audiobooks. Will look for these candles. I am still stuck on this Paddywax holiday scent that is Pomegranate and Spruce. I should branch out!
