GIVEAWAY // Win a Pair of Trask Madison Boots (Worth $298!)

GIVEAWAY // Win a Pair of Trask Madison Boots (Worth $  298!) from Bubby & Bean!

In yesterday’s outfit post, I gushed about the incredible pair of ankle boots I was wearing. And today, I’m absolutely thrilled to be offering you the chance to win a pair of your very own!  Called the Madison Boots, they’re made by one of my new favorite companies, a footwear and leather goods line called Trask. Inspired by the independent spirit of the great American west, Trask provides beautifully crafted shoes, boots, sandals, and accessories for women and men who appreciate artisanal quality and timeless style. This season the women’s collection offers stylish riding boots, booties and flats that strike the perfect balance between form and function. I’m being completely serious when I tell you guys that I’m in awe of the craftsmanship of these boots. They feature soft, burnished leather that is zipped up and topped off with a beautiful buckled harness strap. And their chunky, lightly distressed heel gives off a 70s bohemian vibe that I adore. They’re crazy comfortable too – and for someone who rarely wears even the slightest heel anymore, that’s saying a lot. The attention to detail that these shoes were clearly given is evident, and I couldn’t be happier to be teaming up with Trask to give away a pair to one of you.

GIVEAWAY // Win a Pair of Trask Madison Boots (Worth $  298!) from Bubby & Bean!

Halloween has hit rock bottom

Things were simpler back in the 80s. We only has three things to do the week before Halloween:

1. Watch the Great Pumpkin.


2. Carve a pumpkin. No one helped. If you cut your finger off, oh well.


3. Run to Woolworth’s and pick out your plastic costume that tied in the back like a surgeon’s gown and suffocating mask you could only see out of one eyeball at a time. Trying not to kill yourself tripping over the pavement was half the fun.


And that was it. Our biggest worry at the time was the ever ubiquitous ‘old man hiding razor blades in apples’ trick, which we were all scared of but no one actually ever saw.

I long for those simpler times. My week has been, shall we say, a bit more complicated.

1. Who has time to watch the Great Pumpkin? I have a Halloween party to plan at school. Except we can’t call it Halloween, so it’s a “Harvest Party” (with costumes) in grade 3 and a “Mystical Science Party” (with costumes) in grade 5. Two weeks ago I was summoned to a summit of all the room moms so we could coordinate our party activities, which were delegated as follows:

  • candy potions lab
  • luminescent fingerprint experiment
  • homemade spooky finger cookies
  • dry ice punch
  • Pretend blood coagulation experiment

I missed the meeting. When I was asked after the fact what I’d like to do I offered to contribute some sort of preserved creature in formaldehyde, which was the best I could do. I was assigned plates and cups.

2. Pumpkin carving has now become an Olympic sport.



























My garage is filled with half-used Pumpkin Masters and the sad remnants of plans gone awry. This year, we’re painting them and calling it a day.

3. Costume shopping began two months ago when the Chasing Fireflies catalog arrived. They cost a small fortune, but they are the only catalog where ten year old girls are still allowed to be ten year old girls.


Over my dead body.


“Why aren’t you wearing a costume, Mommy?” asked my daughter.

“Because I can’t find anything I like, honey,” I responded.

“How about a dog?” she asked. “You like dogs.”

That was out.

That was out.

“Maybe I’ll just be a veterinarian,” I said. “That’s hard to mess up.”



Desperate, I tried to think of the least sexy things on the planet. A lamp. A body bag. A hazmat suit.



We’re all doomed.


“I don’t think that’s going to happen,” I said to her. “Maybe we can just get Brody a costume instead.”


Or maybe not.


Go home, Halloween. You’re drunk.

Emmanuelle and Joe

Turn right! Turn right! ‘Joe, you are not looking in the right direction …

Meet my beautiful friend, Emmanuelle and Joe, the cocker spaniel.  Joe is 4 years old and lives in Nice with Emma and Guillaume.

In the smaller photo you see Patrick, owner of this stunning 1968 Renault 4L.

My birthday was last Monday but yesterday these precious friends and Sylvie organised a surprise second birthday celebration! How lucky am I? Five of us plus Joe in this car, whizzing around Nice, an enormous bouquet of flowers and of course all our camera gear.  And a great lunch in the Old Town of Nice.  I thought we were all back in 1968!

Thanks so much everyone! I loved, loved, loved the day.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Bubby and Bean!

Happy Halloween! Halloweens that fall on Fridays (or Saturdays) are the best, aren’t they? Although Essley and I are a little sad not to get to be with daddy on her first one (the band is playing in Boston this year, which was just too far), we are very excited to be here in Indianapolis, celebrating with her Auntie Morgan. My little sister, since I can remember, has been absolutely smitten with Halloween. Her decorations are always incredible, as is her costuming. And she’s going all out for us, with everything from pumpkin carving to Halloween movies to sugary treats. I’m dressing up as a witch (which is admittedly the least effort I’ve ever put into my costume, but hey) and Essley is going to be my little black cat. I made her costume and promise to annoy those of you who follow me on Instagram later today with at least slightly excessive picture sharing. We’re also taking Essley trick-or-treating with Morgan’s neighbors, and yes, we will be eating her candy. Just being honest, guys.

For those of you celebrating, have a wonderfully sweet + spooky Halloween!  And have a great weekend too.
