Bloomberg - A Third of the World’s Air Routes Have Been Lost Due to Covid. Before the coronavirus, a decades-long aviation boom spawned a network of nearly 50,000 air routes that traversed the world. In less than a year, the pandemic has wiped almost a third of them off the map.
National Geographic - New Atlantic marine sanctuary will be one of world's largest. Whales, sharks, seals, tens of millions of seabirds, and just under 300 humans inhabit the small islands that make up Tristan da Cunha.
Vanity Fair - Grey’s Anatomy Stunner: Patrick Dempsey Is Back. The actor, who left the show five years ago, made a shocking return to the long-running series during Thursday night’s premiere. Afterward, Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, and showrunner Krista Vernoff explained how and why.

watch - Set your alarms! The Crown returns to Netflix on November 15th. This may be their most anticipated season with the arrival of Princess Diana. Click here to read more about season 4 and watch the trailer. I’m so excited to see Margaret Thatcher!
brush - For about a year now my pre shower routine has included dry brushing. I don’t do it every single time (especially when I’m in a rush) but usually once a week for about five minutes I dry brush using this brush. I actually received it as a gift from my dermatologist who swears by it for circulation and exfoliation. For more on dry brushing and a great video tutorial from Goop, click here.
slip - A slip skirt is a closet staple for me. They can easily be worn with a chunky knit in the colder temps and paired back to your favorite white t-shirt in the Spring or Summer. This pretty pale blush style is great and under $100. It would make the perfect “at home for the holidays” outfit - just add slippers!
twinning - Last weekend I put the boys in matching shirts for the first time ever and it was great! I’ve always wanted to try it but have found it hard to find boy’s clothing that looks cool and not cutesy. These striped shirts were perfect. I also love this black and cream style. The Striped Sheep is a small female-founded business based in NY (and made in the US!).
make - Pumpkin coffee cake muffins with cinnamon honey butter. Making these for Thanksgiving weekend this year! YUM!

New Preston, CT
Feeling the need to get out of the house and hit the road this weekend? If you’re in the area I highly recommend New Preston, CT. We drove up for the day last weekend and it was just what the doctor ordered…mountain air, good food, and a little retail therapy!
Stop at The Smithy Market and 9 Main for lunch - the sandwiches are so good here Frank ordered two (for himself!). They have plenty of picnic tables outside or take your lunch to-go on a hike. We ran out of time but Lake Waramaug has beautiful hiking trails.
After lunch walk up into town and be sure to pop into all of the lovely antique shops and small businesses. My favorite was Plain Goods. They have the most beautiful home goods, as well as women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing. Perfect place to start your holiday shopping! I also love Privet House.
After a long day head to The Owl for dinner. We haven’t been yet but I’ve heard rave reviews! Happy travels!
