Fall musing

I'm in reflective mood. Fall is elusive in California, but elsewhere, I like to imagine, it's already in full swing, with the smell of clementines and broody skies. These are the 5 things I'm going to do this fall. 

1. Get to know Nathan Williams

Nathan Williams is the editor of Kinfolk magazine. He has a blog, where his life looks exactly like the pages of Kinfolk Magazine. Stylish friends, nature moments, photogenic food and his beautiful wife Katie - I want to be you, Nathan. I'll even take the freckles. 

2. Bake Canele de Bordeaux

Tried them once, got hooked immediately. Crispy on the outside, dreamy on the inside, this french treat is beyond words. Hebrew speakers, the perfect recipe is here

3. Watch Rectify

The Sundance channel keeps enchanting me. Top of the Lake was magical, albeit lacking some emotional depth. Rectify is both deep and disturbing and beautifully made, faded sun on carefully selected faces and all. Alden Young is a revelation. Abigail Spencer is someone to fall in love with, right away. Only 6 episodes, hopefully I can stretch through fall. 

4. Indulge in a sleeping mask

I've been a sleeping mask devotee for the last 5 years. Moving to silky, pampering ones is what I call maturity. Mary Green, a recent discovery, does them so well, I want to wear them all at once.  

5. Be outside

I don't spend enough time outside. Who does? Go do it, today.
