Midi Ring

Monday, June 30, 2014

I have something to admit, I was never a huge fan of the midi ring craze. Whenever I'd purchase a midi ring, it would slip off my fingers. After losing one too many, I thought I was done. However, when I spotted Vickie, from Adventures in Fashion, rocking some awesome gold rings, I decided to give them another try. It turns out, for midi rings, the cheaper the better

The Forever 21 rings, featured above, actually stay on my fingers! I absolutely love the hammered metal look and they've proven to be incredibly durable. 

At this point, I shouldn't be surprised that Forever 21 has done it again.

Oh Biscuit - we have a love/hate relationship, don't we? I was mesmerized by Laura Hillenbrand's second book, Unbroken. Upon recommendation from my dad, I decided to read her first novel too. I had high expectations going into Seabiscuit, having just loved Hillenbrand's other book. I'm sad to say, the Biscuit did not live up to my high hopes. 

The novel chronicles the successful career of Seabiscuit, a racing horse in the 1930's. We get a glimpse into the lives of his trainer, owner and jockey as well. I think where the book falters, is that the reader does not get a larger view into the lives of the actual people caring for, and working with, Seabiscuit. Much of the book chronicles Seabiscuit's career in minute detail. I found this to be both monotonous and boring. I would have liked to learn more about the people and less about the races

Needless to say, I now know more about race horsing than I ever wanted to know. It seems obvious that a book about a racehorse would chronicle race horsing but I didn't know it would be so detailed! 

I'm going to go out on a whim here and say, skip this one for the next book on your reading list. If you're interested in reading a Laura Hillenbrand book, I strongly recommend her other novel, Unbroken, instead.

Greek Islands Taverna

Sunday, June 22, 2014

Florida is not the foodie capital of the United States, however, I want to argue that the state is trying. 

Case and point, Greek Islands Taverna
A family friend brought this Fort Lauderdale restaurant to our attention and I'm so glad she did. 
The food is incredible

I often think about the delicious ribs and avogolemeno soup.  

The restaurant is surrounded by other great spots - I look forward to trying out more delicious food when we return.

My cousin is a huge fan of Nordstrom, and because of her adoration, I decided to check it out for myself. 

I am now a Nordstrom addict

Nordstrom has this awesome section, Savvy, that is both stylish and affordable. They carry brands I haven't seen anywhere else, like the one featured above, Leith. I wear a lot of leggings, so I like my tees to be long enough to cover my butt. I finally found the perfect long t-shirt designed by Leith. The tee is an affordable 36 dollars, so I bought it in two colors, grey and white. 

Nordstrom has moved to the top of my shopping destinations list - I visit the site at least once a week to check out new items.
