I am stocking my bookshelves again because my “have not read” pile is getting low. These are the books on Amazon that have peaked my interest. The discount on Amazon is so unbelievable, I find it very difficult to buy a book full price at a book store. On a recent trip, I realized that I forgot to pack any books and had to buy one at the airport..it almost killed me!
Thin Rich Pretty
The Importance of Being Married
The Atlas of Love
and Last Night at the Chateau Marmont
This one was in my summer pile and I tried so hard to get into it but..Dominick Dunne usually writes about real people and I found myself so distracted reading this trying to figure out who he was talking about! So crazy, but I couldn’t finish it and shipped it home from Newport!
Happy Reading! xo
When I was recently doing some online research, I came across a new blog called “Everything Jackie”
. The writer clearly has done her homework and has all sorts of Jackie and Kennedy tidbits. She has in depth information on all the houses the Jackie had lived in, her family life and much more. Each post delves into another aspect of Jackie and her fascinating life. I am hooked!
A recent post turned me onto a new Twitter account to follow. Since she was pregnant during much of JFK’s campaign, Jackie did her part to be involved by writing her “Campaign Wife” column. She wrote about politics, family issues and what was like to be a candidate’s wife. Her clever columns are now being released by the JFK Library as tweets. They are so interesting and a clever way to bring Jackie in to current social media.
These are some sample tweets so far:
“For the first time since Jack and I have been married, I have not been able to be with him while he is campaigning,” she wrote.
Another tweet: “You can imagine how frustrating it is to be in Hyannis Port reading all that he’s doing and not participating in any way.”

Hello friends…I am finally accepting that Summer is over and Fall is around the corner. So..to kick off this new season, I am hosting a necklace giveaway. The necklace of choice this go-around is a chunky brown/bronze pearl necklace wire wrapped on gold-filled wire. The pearls are somewhat rounded-flat (I know that sounds weird, but they are a little different)
This necklace is so pretty on and retails for $145.
