If you follow me on IG, you already know I had an eventful weekend. I’ve had asthma my whole life, but it still manages to sneak up on me sometimes and this time was quite the ambush. I’m breathing like a normal person again now (yay!) but I’m mostly just focusing on taking all of my medications at the right times and cuddling with a heating pad.
That means I’m going to post a little less for the next week or so than I’d planned, but I still have lots of good stuff coming up for you. I hope you’re all taking care of yourselves!
PS: don’t forget that you only have a week left to get the special deal on my favorite pearls!
What I’m reading:
Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne. I just read this and I really enjoyed it! YA fantasy with a strong female character at the center. You know I love a badass ladyhero.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik. This is a reread. I read this book in December of 2015 and it knocked my socks off. (I reviewed it last January.) Quite a few of you have read it since then and emailed me to talk about it – which I love, by the way. Keep the emails coming!
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling. Mr. DitL and I are continue our audio reread of the Harry Potter series and it’s the perfect winter activity. A blanket, tea or hot chocolate, and a cuddle buddy are the perfect companions to any audio book.
It’s time for Hanukkah!! So here’s how to build a menorah out of mini bagels.
Inside the Secret World of Tiffany & Co.’s Silversmiths.
Welcome to the World’s Oldest Surviving Doll Hospital. This is so weird and creepy and delightful.
What anyone buying their first diamonds should know, according to Vogue India.
Do you know the story of George Washington’s diamond eagle? A fascinating jewel from early American history.
A bunny has been riding the bus in London because he has somewhere to be just like everyone else, okay?

I just joined your blog and love how you write about jewelry. Passion, appreciation of the work involved and how you just plain love the beauty and glam!! Good luck getting back to strong health. Years ago I had asthma but thanks to diet change it rarely gives me trouble. All the best!
