Reading Pretty: A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra


I wanted to read A Constellation of Vital Phenomena the minute I heard about the book. It’s like that for me. I am constantly adding books to my Goodreads list. I’m slowly inching toward my goal of 50 books this year. The story line that spoke to me in the book is Sonja, her sister [...]

This Beautimous Life: May 17, 2013

Hermes Jour d'Hermes Fragrance

This has been a busy week, but it has been so much fun. I was able to catch the preview of Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf, get fitted for a beautiful Wacoal bra, and meet up with old friends at a style event. The weekend is full as well, but I’m thankful. I’m really a [...]

Reading Pretty: The Honest Life by Jessica Alba

The Honest Life

Happy first day of April! Where did the first three months of the year go? It seems to have flown by. It’s also “green month.” I’m in a constant battle of wanting to be more eco-friendly so I plan to feature some green items that I am currently loving for the month. It’s my last [...]

Reading Pretty: A Discovery of Witchess by Deborah Harkness

A Discovery of Witches

OBSESSED! Yes, it needs to be shouted and screamed from the roof top to anyone who wants to listen and/or read. My dear friend Samantha is a bookstore and readers dream. I am always stalking her Goodreads feed to see what she is reading, planning on reading, and her comments. I knew she had read [...]

Reading Pretty: Saturday Night Widows by Becky Aikman

Saturday Night Widows

Did you miss my book posts? I missed writing them. It doesn’t mean I haven’t wanted to write about books, but life got in the way. Well no more. I am happy to be bringing back one of my other favorite loves – books. So look for more book reviews in the next few months. [...]

I’m in “Reading” Love Under New Management

Jack Reacher

I am really about to date myself. I am a junior in high school. I was into rock, hip hop, and R&B. Not that crap that they say is R&B now. I mean the slow, souful music that makes you grab your heart because my goodness you have been there. At that time I didn’t [...]

Reading Pretty: Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson

Yes, Chef

Chef crush alert. I have a huge “chef crush” on Marcus Samuelsson. It started years ago when I first ate at Aquavit in New York. Then it morphed into a slight food obsession. The next thing I knew I’m looking at his Ethiopian cookbook and thinking I could create these amazing dishes. His falafel recipe [...]

Reading Pretty: Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (And Dark Chocolate)

Paris My Sweet Book

I always have a Paris book in my reading rotation. But before I headed to Paris in May, I wanted to read Amy Thomas’ ode to my beloved city. Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (And Dark Chocolate) is a sweet junkie’s tome on life and sweets in one of the [...]

Reading Pretty: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl

I discovered this book from one of my favorite podcasts – Books on the Nightstand. Every time I listen to it my Goodreads list gets longer and longer. I usually consult my book junkie friend Samantha because she always has the best book recommendations. I made her read it just so we could GChat about [...]

Om Pretty: Yoga For Women by Karin Björkegren

Yoga for Women

I received Yoga For Women by Karin Björkegren last year, but I think it’s a perfect opportunity to review the book for a new year. At this time of year the gym is more crowded, diets are being forged, and yoga classes are on resolution lists. I’m going into my sixth year as a yogi and [...]
