Sally Rooney's Normal People

Weekend Reads: Normal People

I skipped a class to finish this book - I know that's reckless but that's what this book does. It's that addicting.   This story is about two people over five years, colliding with elements of pain, sexual abuse, mental health, existentialism, etc. But ultimately, it's a glimmer of what it's like to find, and keep, love under modern-day capitalism.   I'm telling you -...

I adore these early collections when the sweater weight lightens up a bit and the colors are so delicious and flattering – irresistible, really. We have one ribbed sleeve cashmere coat...

TRUST ME…YOU’LL LOVE THIS: baubles, bangles, and beads

My sisters and I have loved accessories for as long as I can remember. Our creative mother was a master at the art of accessorizing. We each inherited her passion and found ourselves chuckling over the holiday weekend when my two year old great niece could not be separated from her ropes of pearls (from our  family costume jewelry stash) and two spiral elastic glow-in-the-dark bracelets (which...
