Books, wine, and jewelry


I finished reading The Marriage Bargain.

I'm terrible at book reports but here's what I thought. I'd probably give it 3 stars out of 5 (or maybe 2.75).  It was predictable and cheesy yet I kept flipping the pages.  It was the first book I read after Fifty Shades so of course it would seem boring and predictable.  But for a quick summer read (only 200ish pages) it wasn't bad.

Reading this now.
Very good writing, should be a page-turner.

SO looking forward to this though, release date July 24th. I've enjoyed all of Emily Giffin's books and this one sounds intriguing.

Since wine goes well with books, here's one that we've been enjoying. Crisp and fruity for summer.

And my new statement necklace with my semi-new Gap dress. Very difficult and weird to photograph oneself!


  1. I just got to the part where Ana has agreed to be Grey's "submissive" I just cant put that book down!!

    Love the statement necklace

    I plan on drinking alot of sauvignon blanc this weekend;)

  2. Love the dress!!! So perfect for summer!

  3. Ahh I'm OBSESSED with Emily Giffin books! I can't wait for "Where We Belong" to come out! And super cute necklace/dress!

  4. I read the Marriage Bargain last month and I really enjoyed it, definitely predictable but a cute read nonetheless. I also LOVE that Sauvignon! That's what I've been grabbing for when I meet up with girlfriends right now.

    Have a great day! :-)

  5. Oh I really wish we lived closer, I know we would be the greatest of friends :) I really need book recommendations right now as I am finishing up Safe Haven and am so glad you have a few. I also am a huge fan of wines and trying to try new wines. I have always enjoyed dry wines but this summer for some reason am really starting to enjoy the lighter and fruity ones with Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio's. I bought that dress in green/white today!! Too funny! Love that statement necklace! I also find it hard to take pictures of myself but also know how much I love seeing other blogs that do that. Good job friend, you look great!
