Autumn!

I binge-watched Netflix’s Emily in Paris. It’s an adorable new series about a marketing executive from Chicago who takes a job in Paris. She learns to navigate French work culture, dating and getting by on zero French. The Atlantic wrote that Emily in Paris is an Irresistible Fantasy. But French critics blasted it as “embarrassing.” Have you seen it?

I’m still reading How to Be a Victorian and listening to Shirley by Charlotte Brontë and A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. And since we’re talking about Victober, why was Victorian London so smelly?

Speaking of Victorian London, have you seen this interesting article about Queen Victoria’s goddaughter?

Have a lovely October day and a nice weekend!
