Book Review: Harmless Like You by Rowan Hisayo Buchanan

  I'll start off by saying that I almost gave up on this book halfway through. I'm glad I didn't but it isn't a long novel and it took me most of it to feel truly engaged. The story is divided between two characters and times. Yuki is a teenager in New York in the… Continue reading Book Review: Harmless Like You by Rowan Hisayo Buchanan

Book Review: When She Was Electric by Andrea MacPherson

This is a story strong on description, full of characters with hidden depths and normal secrets. It is a story about a mother-daughter relationship (and not one to aspire to). The story is primarily told from Ana's point of view, though we also get glimpses into her mother, Min. We are introduced to Ana as… Continue reading Book Review: When She Was Electric by Andrea MacPherson

Book Review: Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates

Unhappy suburban families in the 1950s has become something of a cliche, but it's easy to imagine that Richard Yates before the cliches began. He certainly is able to avoid them. Frank and April Wheeler are in their late twenties, have two children, and live in Connecticut. Frank works in New York City and April… Continue reading Book Review: Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 20

See this dress in 2014 here and in 2013 here. I haven't exactly mixed it up in terms of styling this dress. The dress is H&M. The belt is my one belt that I use for all dresses. I've been trying (not that hard) to find a belt that fits and that can go with… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 20

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 18

We're back to rain today so I went with a comfortable repeat. I wore the same Old Navy dress that I wore just a few days ago on Day 12. Though today I wore it without the belt because I was even more casual. I took some pictures. Pearl photobombed a lot of them. (She… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 18

30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 17

BCBG dress purchased at an outlet in California years and years ago. See it in 2014 here and in 2013 here. I don't wear this dress much anymore and when I got dressed this morning I thought it's probably time to let it go. I like the sort of shapelessness to it but I'm not… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 17

30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 15

(See the dress in 2013 here and in 2014 here.) Last night we had a crazy thunder storm (a rarity for our part of the world though something that's happened a few times recently) and it poured rain all morning. Pearl and Bella and I went for a rain walk in the morning, splashing in… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 15
