feeling geeky~

we've recently been discussing a lot of entertaining books that we have been reading lately .. our favorite of which was Nina Garcia's Little Black Book of Style *heartSsssS other books we painfully tried to finish reading lol or even never got there were Deluxe: How Luxury Lost its Luster - bore fest! it gives us a really detailed insight on how couture houses started and the emergence of the LVMH group but you'll start zZz-ing by the third chapter lol ;p

feeling geeky? get your chic black frames out and carry one of these fun girly books wherever you go - guaranteed to get addicted to!

Girls of Riyadh




The Manny



Bergdorf Blondes


Still didnt kick start your most important resolution of 2008 - getting rid of those few pounds? Skinny B*tch & How the Rich Get Thin are motivational diet books that have a dash of humor in them (the latter of which says reward yourself with shoes or anything marc with every few pounds you get rid of lol)

we've been thinking of starting a book club for a while now .. think the cutest brunch with cupcakes ~* doubt any book talk will be done but we can still call it a book club to sound important ;p the following books are ones we'll be reading next:

La Prisonniere (tenth re-read, a guaranteed i-dare-you-to-put-it-down book)




My Fuedal Lord:
Synopsis
Born into one of Pakistan's most influential families, Tehmina Durrani was raised in the privileged milieu of Lahore high society and educated at the same school as Benazir Bhutto. Like all women of her rank, she was expected to marry a wealthy Muslim, bear him many children and lead a sheltered life of air-conditioned leisure. When she married Mustafa Khar, one of Pakistan's most eminent political figures, she continued to move in the best circles, and learned to keep up the public facade as a glamorous, cultivated wife, and mother of four children. In private, however, the story-book romance rapidly turned sour. Mustafa Khar became violently possessive and jealous, and succeeded in cutting his wife off from the outside world. For the course of her 14-year marriage, she suffered alone, in silence. - amazon.co.uk



Finally, we leave you with This Little Piggy Went to Prada - Nursery rhymes for the pint sized fashionista's in training lol ;p a fun book to keep part of your collection to sing to any baby fashionista you know <3



"I had a little shoe tree nothing it would bear,
But Manolo Blahniks and vintage Taittinger
The Queen of Style, Ms Wintour, came to see me
and wrote a piece in Vogue about my shoe tree."

niiteyy ;)

Bergdorf Blondes..what can i say but highly entertaining, La Prisionaire..could not put it down for a second and the fashionista in training, "This Little Piggy went to Prada" was part of a gift given to one of my best friends at her baby shower!!!
