  • I finally finished The Nest and I am working on a review for it. I only had five days left on this loan by the time I finished so it was just in time!

  • I started listening to the audiobook version of The Hopefuls and I'm so excited about it. It's about a young couple who lives and works in DC and the synopsis kind of reminded me of me and Brian!

  • I also finished A Very English Scandal (finally) and a review for it will be up soon!

  • I've been wanting to read Circe because I've heard so much about it. If you have read it, please let me know what you think of it!


  • Anyone else lusting after an Apple Watch? Jen has one and it's been making me want one too haha. I LOVE the idea of it but I don't need it so I can't justify paying the price for the series 3 for something unnecessary. I know the new one will be coming out later this month so let's see if that drives the price of the old ones down a bit.

  • I've never been a cashmere sweater-wearing person but for some reason, it's all I can think about lately now that Autumn is supposed to be here any minute. This Everlane one has caught my eye - I love the color, the mockneck, and the cropped length!

  • I bought my first Draper James dress during the Labor Day sale and it is lovely - in fact I wore it to DC Fashion Week. It's sold out now but I also love this other dress in the exact same print!

  • Hung out with my best friend, Jen! Longtime readers may know Jen by her guest book reviews on this blog. She's a librarian who lives in Portland, OR (opposite side of the country from me) so seeing her is a real treat!

  • I went to DC Fashion Week! I'll have a post on it next week but it was a blast! I met a lot of DC bloggers I followed too so that was so awesome.
