Winter Reading

Among countless fashion magazines and style blogs that I read on a daily basis, there is always room for books.

I am guilty of reading more than one book at a time though, and yes, it’s a bad habit and maybe a sign of ADD, it’s similar to watching several different shows, and every new chapter, is like, well, a new episode!

The two books I am currently working my way through are:

– Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan

– Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman

The books that are on my to-read list are:

– Bridget Jones Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

– Likeable Social Media

I prefer not to make long lists, and set attainable goals 😉 I also love reading books on my Nook, but of course nothing beats checking them out of the library. Call me old fashioned, but …

Happy Tuesday!

I have also been recently nominated for a Liebster Award by Kimi of Twenty Something Simple,
 
and even though most of you know how I feel about blogger awards (Painful and Unncessary –
 
in words of Samantha Jones of SATC), I loved her questions, so here are my answers:
 
What is your favorite part about blogging?
 
I love being able to share my style and life with everyone, it’s a way of expressing myself. I
 
absolutely love the idea of meeting new people and building relationships and connections with
 
my readers!
 
How do you keep your blog thoughts organized?
 
I do several weekly/monthly posts that are regular (i.e Thrift Style Thursday or 2014
 
Blogger Challenge), everything else, like my outfit posts, are done over the weekend, or during
 
my days off, and then are scheduled throughout the week. I also keep an editorial calendar.
 
What is one word that describes your style?
 
Independent
 
What is your favorite animal?
 
Bunnies, squirrels, hamsters, you get the idea 😉
 
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
 
An ESL teacher
 
If you could only visit one country outside of your own, which one would you choose?
 
UK
 
What’s your favorite month of the year?
 
May
 
What’s your favorite way to eat potatoes?
 
French Fries
 
What’s your favorite TV show?
 
The one quoted in this post already – SATC
 
Do you have any siblings?
 
Two half-brothers, they are fraternal twins and are currently in second grade! Talk about
 
age difference!
 
What is your favorite pattern to wear?
 
Floral, and bold prints!
 
 

{27 Dresses} Dress 7: Checking Out Some Books

I will be honest with you, library is one of my favorite places to go to! It’s relaxing and inspiring for me at the same time! So I don’t think I am going to surprise you if I tell you that I dress up to go to the library! Well I dress up to go almost anywhere, even work 😉 and that’s how this project started!

По-русски: Все уже, наверное, знают, что я обожаю библиотеку и хожу туда как на праздник! Ну и не удивительно, что я специально нарядилась для подобного случая. Я могу провести в библиотеке весь день, я так релаксирую и расслабляюсь, ну и нахожу своеобразный источник вдохновения. Если вам интересно, что я читаю, то вот список:

Пауло Коэльо – Манускрипт, найденный в Акко

Пауло Коэльо – Победитель остается один

Виктор Пелевин – Т

Гари Штейнгарт – Super Sad True Love Story

И на моем Nook я читаю “Игра Эндера”

Читали ли вы что-то из вышеперечисленного? Мне будет очень интересно ваше мнение!

He is checking out some weird books!

That’s what the librarian is going to say if she looks at my fiance’s record:

– Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

– Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

and The Lies that Chelsea Handler told me – requested

He will be notified once that last one is ready to be picked up too!

I hate using other people’s things, especially library cards. I really don’t want them to know what I read. Because I usually read God knows what. At least I strayed away from the HP series. Now Sophie Kinsella and I have a long lasting relationship. Ever since I started nannying for the G family in New Jersey, she’s been there for me. Then I moved to NYC and had to deal with the K family. Sophie was there for me no matter what. Yes, sometimes her name was Madeline Wickham, but she was good nevertheless.

She makes me feel good about myself, and my minor shopping addiction. I love shopping, especially for hair products. And those of you who know me, also know about the hair struggles I’ve been through! Anyways, my point is – Reading is Sexy and go check out your local library, mine has birch trees out front 🙂

What are you reading this week?
