Fashion Week Friday.

To be completely honest, besides a few blogs and articles on Fashion Week, I don’t really follow the event all that closely. But, you see all these “street style” photos of people hanging out between shows and I can’t help but wonder “How much did they PAY for that outfit?!” (sometimes critically sometimes out of pure envy).

Well. This article from Yoodot asked a few attendees that question and here are some of the answers:

75_dollars

  350_dollars

2400_dollars

too_much

priceless

“Priceless”  – I LOVE that answer! For more outfits and prices, click the images above or here. Thank you, Alison at Brown Eyed Style for the link!

… THEN there’s Jimmy Kimmel’s prank … So funny!

Bookworm.

Ever since the BF got our iPad, I have rediscovered reading- sort of a sad statement, really, but true. So… in case you need some reading inspo, here are the books I have read in the past 6ish months:

books

1) Brain On Fire – A true story about a young 20-something woman who fights “crazy” and death for a month before being successfully diagnosed, treated, and healed enough to write her story.  Definitely recommend.
Amazon Rating: 4.5/5

2) Wonder This is a sweet and sometimes a little sad book about a young boy born with facial deformity. Makes you realize how easy most of us have it. Told through multiple people’s perspective.
Amazon Rating: 4.8/5

3) Life of Pi – Read before the movie. The movie does a fairly good job of keeping to the storyline but the book is obviously better because it goes into way more detail. If you haven’t seen the movie, I recommend holding off and reading the book first. THEN see the movie in 3D.
Amazon Rating: 4.2/5

4) The Art of Racing In The Rain – After not really digging the opening sample of this book, I decided to give it another try and was pleasantly surprised. This story is narrated through the eyes of the family dog who is super ____________ and desperately wants to be a human.  Im pretty sure this will be a movie soon enough.  Great animal-lover book.
Amazon Rating: 4.6/5

5) Gone GirlAnother book that will most likely be a movie soon. Crazy murder mystery with a surprise twist at the end! Easy read and perfect for your next vacation/beach trip.
Amazon Rating: 3.8/5

6) Glass Castle- This is an autobiography describing the author’s unique, nomadic childhood. It was okay but kind of depressing at times.
Amazon Rating: 4.6/5

7) I Can Barely Take Care Of Myself This was the first book where I didn’t read the “sample” before I downloaded it. That was probably a mistake. While I happen to love Jennifer Kirkman in Funny or Die’s Drunk History, and I agree with her on almost all of her (humorous but genuine) reasons, I wouldn’t really recommend this book… she drove home her points a little to hard for a little too long. We get it. You don’t want kids.
Amazon Rating: 4.3/5

8) Defending Jacob – Twisty murder-mystery about a DA who ends up working a murder of a boy at his son’s school. The last quarter of the book or so gets super intense! I kept yelling “OH MY GOSH!” and having to stop to tell the BF what happened. It was like that.
Amazon Rating: 4.3/5

9) Seriously… I’m Kidding  – I’m a huge fan of Ellen and I guess I expected her book to be on par with Chelsea Handler (If you haven’t read her books, get on it before reading any of the books in this list – so. funny.). This book is written in sort of a stream-of-thought style which is humorous but not hilarious. My favorite part was the letter to the mall security towards the end. This book would probably make a better audio book (which is also available).
Amazon Rating: 3.8/5

10) Currently reading: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?Just started this one. I think Mindy is so cute and funny so I hope this book is, too!
Amazon Rating: 4.3/5

11) Need to eventually finish: The Power of Habit – good book about how your brain creates habits. It’s been moved down my priority list… I’ll finish it eventually.

Not Pictured:

great gatsbyGreat Gatsby – Just like everyone else, I read this book in high school but wanted a quick reminder before the movie. (have yet to see it but love Baz Lurhman stuff! (ex: Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet).
Amazon Rating: 4.2/5

dave ramseyThe Total Money Makeover (on CD) – The BF recommended this one to me. Great way to remind yourself that being “financially fit” is important. Easy, actionable step-by-step guide to financial health.
Amazon Rating: 4.5/5

Comment with any other books you recommend! I am always looking for something new and worth it!!

The Repeller of Men.

This blogger is amazing. She  just exudes confidence and creativity! I totally want to be friends with her.

Don’t you love the concept behind the name “Man Repeller”? I feel like every girl has a few items/outfits that their boyfriends (or men in their life in general) just don’t get.

Today deserves a soundtrack.

Because we’re young and it’s Friday, I have made a soundtrack.

Unfortunately, you need Spotify to listen to it. You should probably have Spotify anyway. Click below to listen to my jams.

Understand this.

So I admit. I find myself listening to that radio station that plays the same 6 songs over and over. As a result, I notice that I can sing along to most of the songs – even if a) I’m not paying attention to what they’re/I’m saying (see Blues Traveler’s “Hook” or b) I am singing (or attempting to say) what the artist is – with no thought as to what they actually mean.

This website is designed to help those of you out there who are struggling with problem b. Okay… so I take that back. It probably won’t help. But if you’re at least looking for something entertaining – and often humorous–  check it out.

It’s called:



Understand Rap (don’t you just love their logo/look!?) is a website that takes lines from rap songs and “translates” them into concepts that the average person  (or, more accurately, people like your mother and grandmother (as the website’s book title so nicely explains))… can understand.

I think my favorite part about this website is when they choose to explain phrases that are not only totally obvious, but seem to be written by a 68 year old female high school english teacher! It’s seriously awesome.

Example:

I think that last one is one of my favorites…she pales in comparison to the woman that I am courting.” How can you not get at least a chuckle out of that!?

Not only can you view explanations, you can also explain OR ask what lyrics mean. Check out the book, too! I think it could make a great coffee table book or even a gift for any of your friends/family with a sense of humor.

Try your hand at an explanation! Or maybe you’ve been wondering what that one rapper was trying to say? Either way… what are some of your favorite explanations?

Just you and me.

Saturday mornings are my favorite:

Sleep in, make breakfast, and then do whatever the day has in store! Often/preferably at my own pace: A Saturday Pace.

Here is a video/song that I have been obsessing over that kind of reminds me of my ideal Saturday Pace (found via The Craft Begins). The song, titled Just You and Me, is by a girl named Zee Avi– she’s got such a unique/retro voice!

The video featuring Zee Avi’s song is actually an ad for an eyewear company, Oliver Peoples,  starring Shirley Manson and Elijah Wood!


Oliver Peoples actually has not only great eyewear (I want it ALL!) but also other great things on their website including an entire series of super cute videos. Seen HERE and (SEVEN!) music compilations seen HERE. They also have a lifestyle blog.

What a cool company! What a cool concept! Don’t you just love it when companies/websites become more than just a place to make a quick purchase?! Hope you enjoy your Saturday at whatever pace pleases you most.
