Life After Life

Tuesday, September 1, 2015


Life After Life tells the story of Ursula Todd, a woman growing up in the early 20th century. What's unique about Ursula is that she dies at various points in her life and is born again each time. My mom told me she got whiplash when she read this book. I definitely understand her sentiment, however, it wasn't so much Ursula that spoke to me but more so the bond she had with her family. I really enjoyed reading about Ursula's relationships with her mom, dad and siblings. The way they all interacted felt very real to me. 

Life After Life certainly doesn't rank as one of my top books of all time, however, it was good enough for me to begin the companion novel, A God in Ruins

Wilfred's summer 2015 line is on point. There is a very Isabel Marant Etoile vibe from all the pieces. When the summer styles went on sale I did some significant damage. 

You can never get too much of a good thing, right?

La Joli Bijou

As someone told me recently at work, "wire bracelets are your thing". My favorite designer for wire bracelets is La Joli Bijou. I was thrilled to receive some complimentary La Joli bangles in the mail and the ones sent my way are absolutely stunning. 

This "courtesy of" gift is one of the highlights of my blogging career as I am a huge fan of La Joli's jewelry.
