Currently Reading

As a child I don't think I would have called myself a bookworm. I liked books but I didn't have the thirst for knowledge like I do now. I find reading, wait for it, fun. I like learning new and exciting things through reading. I love learning about other peoples expirences and lives through the written word. 
Currently I'm devouring The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (J. K. Rowling) but I've got two books on deck; Amy Purdy's On My Own Two Feet and The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes. I am excited for The Last Letter From Your Lover the most, because I feel like it'll be a good read that I'll be able to enjoy but still plow through. 

What are you currently reading? And are you a bookworm or do you read because just to read? 


Burgundy Love

I'm Wearing: Sweater: Target // Skirt: Kohl's // Shoes: Nine West (♥ these) // Tights: Capezio // Jacket: BB Dakota (old) // Lipstick: Revlon Sassy Mauve (this is what I was wearing during the day that faded)

Long time no outfit post, eh? I promise not to dawdle too much before the next one but let me tell you-it's so cold here the Polar Bears at the zoo are the only content ones. 


What I Bought: Boxing Day (Day after Christmas) Sale

What I Bought: Blue and White Sweater: Loft // Harry Potter Lightning Tee: Hot Topic // White Overlay Chiffon Top: Loft // Bow Loafers: Nine West // The Dark Mark Muscle Tee: Hot Topic // Kate Spade Wallet // Bow Keyfob: Kate Spade // Foundation Brush (#27): Sephora // Nars Sheer Glow Foundation: Sephora // Temporary Tattoos: Tattly // Quidditch Socks: Hot Topic //

I love shopping, but I love a good ol' sale even more. Here in the states we don't celebrate boxing day but I live so close to the Canadian border that our outlet mall (which already has massive sales) was doing a Boxing Day sale. I felt like a bit of a crazy person because I had a mental list of what I wanted to buy (new foundation, black loafers, Harry Potter socks and something Kate Spade) but it all worked out in the end because I ticked off every box and even came away with a few more items than expected!
