Things I Love Thursday

Turning The Last Page - I love the feeling of accomplishment that I get from finishing a really good book. I've just finished reading The Help by Katheryne Stockett. I thought it was a wonderfully well written book that transported me to the southern States with ease. Some of the rest of the books on my nightstand are The Bloody Chamber, The Dice Man, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and a few more. Are there any reads that you'd love to share with me? I'd love to add some more titles to my night time stack of reading.

Convict Stripes - For the past few weeks I've been having a secret love affair with all things in black and white stripes. The fat girl in me is screaming 'no' at the mention of striped clothing though and is constantly warning me not to succumb to the lure of the mono-stripe... but then I saw THIS outfit on Kyla and I'm starting to waver - I already have a mustard cardigan, and I have a striped tube skirt, and some black boots. Hmmmm 

A Little Bit Of Candy - Just cause sometimes, on a dreary Thursday morning you need something nice to look at. So to all my lady readers - enjoy, and to all my guy readers - we're not comparing.   

Honourable Mentions - fizzy cola bottles, clearing some of the clothes that don't fit anymore out of my wardrobe, wearing a high, soft bun on the top of my head, raspberry and vanilla jam, opening a new tub of Ben & Jerry's and only wanting a few spoons before putting it back into the freezer, a freshly made bed, hearing loose change at the bottom of your bag and realising that it's mostly made up of €2 coins, bondage tights, remembering how much I loved glitter make up when I was 18, short skirts, spicy noodle soup - I must have had this at least 4 times in the last week


  1. I'm reading Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell--highly recommend it!

    Also, I think that the old trope about stripes making girls look fat is bs ;)

  2. @the orange girls - thanks for the recommendation - must pop over to amazon and pick up a copy, and maybe I might try out that outfit, thanks ;)
