Happy Monday guys! I’m back today with another round of my favorite books! I’m planning to make these reviews a more regular feature since I read so much, typically 5-6 books per month. This list is a mix of the thrillers, contemporary fiction, & YA novels that I’ve read in the last few months. Let me know if you have any recommendations for me!
A few weeks ago I shared my newfound love for Rent the Runway’s Unlimited subscription service in a See It, Love It, Want It post. It’s been another month & I am even more obsessed with the service, if that’s possible, so I wanted to share a little more details & some of my finds. As I mentioned before, Rent the Runway now has a huge selection of everyday, work, & casual clothing, handbags & accessories. Think brands like Kate Spade, Tory Burch, DVF, Derek Lam 10 Crosby, Joie, Rebecca Taylor & so many more!
Good morning! I’m back in the office for the start of another work week, but I know that lots of you are at home enjoying the long weekend so I wanted to pop in to share a few of the amazing President’s Day Sales that are going on right now. You know that I love a good sale!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend, with plenty of family time, good food, & relaxation. We are so lucky to have most of our family nearby, so we got to have a large Thanksgiving dinner with everyone included. We also started decorating the house for Christmas. The only thing left is the tree, which is up, but some of the lights are out, so I’m tackling that tonight. At Home just opened here, so I’m planning a trip to stock up on some new decor soon! You can never have enough, am I right? This is my favorite time of year, so I’ve got some special holiday content planned – lots of gift guides, some decor posts, & holiday style posts. To start things off, here’s a roundup of the best Cyber Monday sales & my picks from some of my favorite stores!
The holiday shopping season is almost here! Every year it seems like retailers begin their sales earlier & this year is no exception. Unlike my mother, who always gets her lists together well in advance, I’ve never been the type of person that gets her shopping done early. I always say that I’m going to plan ahead so that I can take advantage of the great Black Friday sales, but I’m usually running around the days before Christmas picking up last minute gifts. Well, Thanksgiving hasn’t even arrived yet & there are already plenty of great deals to be found if you’re ready to get your holiday shopping started! Here are some of the best Early Black Friday Sales around.
I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away! The weather here has been so crazy that it’s making it difficult to really get into the holiday spirit. Hopefully we’ll get some fall temps soon so I can start wearing my sweaters & ponchos again! Since the start of the holiday season is right around the corner & the holiday party invites are beginning to arrive, I thought that I would start off my gift guide series with ideas for gifts for the hostess. I know how stressful it can be to host a holiday party, so I always like to bring a little something with me when I attend a party in someone’s home to show how much I appreciate their efforts.
I cannot believe that it is already November! Time flies! We have finally gotten some fall weather here & I could not be happier. There are few things that I love more in the fall than cozying up by the fire with a good book! Here are 7 fall book reviews of mysteries & thrillers that I’ve picked up recently:
It’s no secret that reading is my all-time favorite hobby & I always have at least one book loaded onto my iPad & another one on my nightstand. My mother has always been an avid reader & my grandmother was a librarian, so I guess that I come by it honestly! Now that summer is quickly approaching & vacation plans are in the works, I’ve been compiling my summer reading list. While my taste in books ranges from YA to historical fiction to chick lit, I’ve found myself gravitating toward mysteries & thrillers lately. Must be all of the Investigation Discovery Channel I’ve been watching! While I can’t get enough of the page-turners, I’ve also included a few beach reads to lighten up the list. I would love to know what you’re reading this summer!
A few weeks ago we took a Sunday day-trip to the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler, Texas. Tyler is only an hour & a half drive from our home in Shreveport, so it’s a really easy & fun trip to make in an afternoon. With 85 acres, 6 exhibit areas & over 3,400 animals, it’s an impressive facility for our area. The zoo is beautiful, with winding paths, lots of shade, & carefully designed habitats. I took so many pictures (an obnoxious number), so I’m sharing a small portion & some of my favorite animals today!CONTINUE READING
