Fav. new books coming out soon!!!

I wanted to post about my favorite books that are coming out in the next few months. I used to hate reading when I was growing up, unless it was a fun book that wasn't boring. In school I would tend to drift off when reading really educational books. So the books that I've been reading are very good books! (I think so at least). They're totally exciting, funny, and not at all boring. They don't even feel like you're reading a book and they're very pageturning! (did I just make up that word?) I would look at all the books I've recommended, because the authors are very popular and have written multiple books. I would like to do this every so often and pick some books and authors I like and have read.

I'm sure most of you have heard of these authors since they're very popular. If not, you should definately check them out! These authors write really funny and cute stories that are totally relatable to most everyone.

I'm very excited about the new Sophie Kinsella book, Remember Me? coming out on February 23rd. It can be preordered on for about $19.00 with shipping. I also checked out walmart and target, which has it a few dollars cheaper. But, you might want to purchase it here since it's very easy to do so.

Brief Synopsis:

28 year old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital room having forgotten the past four years. She thinks she is a twenty four year old and is unsure of her whereabouts. She soon finds out pieces of her life that she can't remember!~I don't wanna give anything else away, but you can go to the amazon site and find more about this book. I can't wait to get it!!!

Other Favorites of Sophie Kinsella:

You also must check out the Shopaholic Series, which is her most famous book series.

This book is a stand alone novel (not a series). I really enjoyed this book as it was extremely funny. It revolves around the character Emma who tells all her quirky secrets to a man sitting next to her on a plane. She never expects to see this man again...but alas she does! That's all I'm going to spill...go get this book!

Coming out soon: Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot. This book is due out later this year and I can't wait!~The third book in the series, it follows herione, Lizzy, in her recent engagement and supposed marriage to her boyfriend. However, the marriage is fated to not take place as she is beginning to think twice about it throughout the story.

The first book is titled, Queen of Babble, where you will meet Lizzie where she has just graduated from college. She will right away travel to London to visit her boyfriend from college. There you will realize just how quickly she jumps into situations and then later learns they aren't the best for her. The book is very comical and will have you laughing throughout.

The second book, Queen of Babble in the Big City, follows her to New York City, where she again follows her most current boyfriend. Homeless and jobless, she moves in with him and their relationship begins to evolve.

Also by Meg Cabot:

These books are a series but don't have all the same characters. The main characters in these books will change but they're from the same company. The text of the book is written in e-mails that are written between the workers at The New York Journal. You will get to know the workers through these e-mails, and it's a very interesting read.

New Favorite:

Bitter is the New Black by, Jen Lancaster.

This book is a true story of Jen Lancaster a woman living in Chicago in an ultra sheek apartment. She seemingly has everything...expensive great job...However, she ends up losing her job and thus her life changes quickly. The book is so funny the way she presents it and it is actually a true account of her life. It has such a realness about it.
She also has two more books that are written in the same way. However, I haven't had the chance to read them yet as I just finished this one yesterday!

Tip: Jen Lancaster's books are in the Humor section of Borders.

So I think you should go to Borders (my favorite book store) and look for these titles. You can also search them on Amazon...they have them all!

Super Tuesday...7's and other fun stuff

So it's Super Tuesday everyone!~I really wanted 2 vote, but I didn't because I wasn't registered at my new address yet. But I did send in my registration I will be registered in time for the election. I'm not really into politics, but I have been watching the news about the election lately. I admit I don't know much about the candidates and their campaigns, but I have been trying to learn. I at least know everyone whose running, and have been getting more into it. So I'm trying! I think it's important to at least be interested, for me at least. So for everyone that isn't registered, think about registering! You can go to any candidates homepage and find a link to register. Anyway...enough of my public service message!

I have been shopping, (of course) and I have expanded my wish list! This is a bad thing since I'm not working full time yet and should be saving money!~But, it can't hurt to look at nice things I want. This way, I'll know exactly what I want to buy once I have money! (great theory, I know). So I have been shopping at Nordstrom for some time now and haven't ever noticed the beautiful 7 For All Mankind jeans they have there. I just always go straight into the Junior Department and shop there. I totally love their department too, so don't get me wrong. If you've been reading this blog you will definately know that! I show sooo many of their clothes here! But...I absolutely want a pair of these jeans. People I know that have them say they fit sooo well and they are very durable. Making these jeans a very good buy when you think about how long they'll last. Yes, this is what I'm telling myself when I'm deciding if I can afford to buy them. I'm still on the fence about it...maybe a few more months till I can do this.

Look at the pretty back pockets!~I just love them!

I also just bought Silver Jeans from Nordstrom. They are particularly amazing to be since they have a 35 inch inseam! All you tall girls can relate to finding such a length on jeans! Silver's have all different lengths from 30-35. I was amazed that they had a 35! I normally get tall jeans from Express, or try to find a 34 length. Finding a 34 length is very hard as well, but Silver's have them! Below, are the exact pair that I got, and they're really comfortable.
I think that's about all the shopping finds I have for today. I'm currently looking for some new boots and I haven't been able to find anything!~I'm looking for boots that aren't too high and that are very comfortable. I need them to be comfortable enough to wear at work and I walk around alot! So any suggestions would help, I've been through almost every store in my one mall. So help!!!

New Things! Sweaters, Uggs, others

So Sorry I Neglected to Post! I have been busy with work...sort of. I just haven't posted mostly cause I have been working...or trying to hah. Plus, my lack of funds have kept me out of the malls...well I still go at least once a week or so. However, I haven't really been buying much cause I still have Christmas bills to pay. Amazing how much I bought for my family this year, and I didn't even realize it until the bill came. I was surprised to say the least. I think in this post I'll review some things I got for Christmas that I am loving. I also have some other things I wanna talk about as well.

First, I want to mention my new Uggs that I got. My mom picked them out all by herself...I must add!~They're so warm since they're the higher boots and comfortable...(I'm sure you know this if you have Uggs). Mine are a size up from what I normally wear. When I was getting my last pair, the guy in the store had told me to get a size smaller because they stretch, but it seemed like my toes were too close to the end. So...just suggesting getting the bigger size..or try on the bigger size at least before deciding!

I really like these because they can match with brown/tan colors and also can go with black...Although I mostly wear them with brown/tan.


I was looking on the Nordstrom website, and found a cute sweater in their BP/Junior department. I really like the color, as you might have noticed I've been picking shirts with that color out alot!~This shirt is good for going out and dressing it up with a long necklace and black leggings as it shows in the picture. It's $36.oo which is a pretty good price! It also comes in black, which I tend to have way too much of in my closet!~

Mac Makeup:

I recently got a new eyeshadow that I am loving. It's called Nylon and is a frost so it gives that bright look. It's a beige color and has a sort of sparkle to it, although it doesn't have sparkles in it. It just kind of catches the light as frosts sort of do. I also love Pink frost, Vex and Naked Lunch.

I also love the lipglass Morning Glory (which is my favorite) it's a purpleish gloss w/ sparkles in it. I will try to do a post with pictures so you can actually tell what I'm talking about. But you can always ask to see it at a Mac counter!~I also have Viva Glam which I like because it really stays on long and is a darker brown color.


In my never ending search for shoes...I can never find the right pair that isn't too high, as I'm about 5'7 I don't want shoes that make me too tall. Call it a complex, but I think most taller girls don't want to be about 6 feet tall. I'll only wear shoes that have about a two inch heel or so. So I found these on the nordstrom website and thought they were so cute. They have a 1 3/4 inch heel, which meets my acceptable height standards! They also come in brown leather and are $179, which for boots isn't bad. Nordstrom is great because they have shoes in all price ranges and you can get them for much cheaper than this! But I really like these because you can wear skinny jeans with these and they have the little design on the back.

That's all for now, I will try and update more often...after my shopping trip this week! Happy shopping! :)
