wit & whimsy I Shopping Tips

This week felt tough. Wednesday evening my anxiety really started to set in and then a restless night of sleep followed. I am not naive to the fact that I believe this will be our new normal for some time and doing all of this single and living alone is…tough. I want to stay informed but the news is making me anxious as I am sure it is for all of you. I love living in New York but going through something like this in a heavily populated city also contributes to some of the fear I feel right now.

I hope that wit & whimsy can remain a helpful, hopeful and uplifting destination for you all in this time. I am extremely grateful for your readership and all the encouraging messages I’ve been receiving over the past couple of weeks. We’re in this together & my heart goes out to all of you.


  • Hunkered down. I only left the house to go to the pharmacy or take myself on a walk. I found the walks were key to my mental sanity. I also started during some online yoga classes in my studio to ensure my body keeps moving.
  • I filmed my first ever video tutorial! It’s my everyday makeup and I hope you find it helpful. I hope to get better at feeling comfortable on video. You can watch it here if you are interested.
  • Took this time to de-pill a lot of my sweaters with my favorite fabric shaver.
  • Started and finished this fast read. The second half was much better than the first.
  • This risotto is one of my favorite recipes. It is great cold the next day, too! I made it this week. I also made this recipe which is a new favorite. It was incredibly easy and had SO much flavor.
