book list: spring edition

as we all know i am a compulsive book buyer so here is my spring book list:

i enjoyed this a lot and i felt like it gave me an interesting take on being between points in my life
a really fun lighthearted read perfect for the beach
a great introduction/wakeup call when it comes to understanding finances
a great book to inspire me to get in shape for the summer (and a fun book on the place that everyone hates to love!)
i obviously don't know how to cook and need to learn, so maybe this book will help!

so, this is my top 5 books to read this spring in my 5 favorite categories!
1. self-help
2. romance
3. practical girly advice
4. coffee-table
5. cookbook

*if you need any book recommendations please ask and i will send you a list!

Now that I am going to have to seriously budget (I want to save money and still be able to somewhat have a life), I have been spending a lot of time researching some fun options and I have come across some fun things to get/do complimentary (in NYC of course)

These things include:

1. Complimentary personal service at topshop
2. Free hemming at uniqlo (their pants only)
3. Free rides once a week at 1pm at soulcycle (3 locations - TriBeCa - Wednesdays, E 83rd - Thursdays, and W 72nd - Fridays)
4. Free yoga classes at lululemon at 4 NYC locations (look here for schedules in your area)

Fun places to get samples:
3. sabon

Do you know of any other fun ones?

correspondence book

i know that one day i am going to want to remember the good times i had with my friends so i have been debating starting a correspondence book of memories to reread when i am an old dog woman. (dog because i am not a cat person, that is for AMC)

i also might keep the records on the off chance that i become famous, so when people want to make a book about me, they have the true story and hard copies, like the letters between marilyn monroe and her numerous friends.

tea + honey

as i was wandering around new york city this past weekend with COH and CMR we found ourselves stopping into the tea+honey store and i immediately fell in love!

needless to say, i picked up a small bear of the hamptons honey (the wildflower one).

tip: if you suffer allergies like me and my mom do, consuming local honey helps in the spring because of bees and pollination, just make sure that it is the wild honey. (courtesy of DFM)

Charles Philip Shanghai

I don't know about you but I'm obsessed with the charles philip shanghai shoe collection! They are beautiful shoes and are (somewhat) reasonably priced! I just need to figure out where I can snag a pair of the colored and striped ones!

Embrace Messy Hair

Normally I like to make sure my hair is in some form of order to balance out the fact that I don't take proper care of it. However, as of late, I have taken to embracing messy hair on weekends and give it the rest it needs.

Please see above for examples of what it looks like regularly!

Cleanse Update

So I successfully made it through my 2nd day (progress!!!) but I am going to have to end it due to the unhappy side effects I was experiencing. I started to get nauseous and ended up having to snack on some food to settle my stomach!

I think this time around it went much better because I knew what I was getting into and would have done the full 3 days, had I not felt that way. It's funny that I started to feel sick because I kept thinking to myself is this even working?? Is it worth starving myself and dealing with constant food cravings? I almost wished I got the side effects listed because I thought at least there would be proof of my body getting better BUT now that it happened I wished that I didn't have the natural side effects...oh well!

Lucky for me DCM was on the train to keep me company!


while i am notorious for my extreme dislike of sports, it does not take much effort to convince me to attend fun games...like the yankees game tonight!
