the books i read on vacation and loved

i might have a thing for books being made into movies. and brits.
this book was really good and although
maybe not a super uplifting beach read,
a perfect glass of wine/rainy day read...
and if you really want to be annoying,
read book aloud to husband using terrible british accent.

okay, now i know what you are saying, everyone has already read the help.
and i know pretty much everyone has..but for those of you who maybe haven't.
go now. quickly. it's that good.

this is technically cheating, but this is the third time
that i have read this particular book.
only because though, i always bring it along in case
i read all my new ones too fast.
and who wants to be left with nothing to read on their last perfect beach day...
not me. the fact that i have read this so many times though is a testament to how much i love it. which...i really do. (i hope they make into a movie)

"Stay on your diet dear, YUCK YUCK YUCK"

a quote from 'Shag', one of my favorite movies of all time, and the perfect summer movie to watch with your girlfriends. i always feel like this movie is so under appreciated, and sometimes wonder if the only reason i know about it is because i am a girl from south carolina who says y'all with all it's glory. well guess what...vogue magazine did a fashion feature based on this film. read it here. southern girls from the 60's are chic once again.

snapshots from our beach week

and i am leaving armed with a renewed sense of self that only comes after a week at the sea.

currently on repeat in my life

{if i die young, the band perry}
i am having a sad country song moment

summer girl, leighton meester
my beach anthem

soon we'll be found, sia
i heard this song in barnes and noble the other day... i love sia. her haunts me

america, simon and garfunkel
the perfect road trip song... and i've been on a lot of road trips lately

the good life, one republic
how can anyone not listen to this song and feel genuinely happy
