NA Crush Tournament

If you know me, you probably know about my love for True Blood and the awesome Viking Vampire, Eric Northman.  Alexander Skarsgard owns that role.  That being said, it's time for the NA Crush Tournament!  If you love Norse Mythology, then I would strongly suggest that you all check out a fab book by S T Bende called Elsker.  Loving ASkars is also a great reason to check it out!  She actually met the inspiration for her book, the one and only Alexander Skarsgard!!!  Please check out the post and pics from this awesome moment, here!

Here's a little about the wonderful author of the Elsker series:

Author Bio:
Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, ST Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats.  Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired The Elsker Saga.  She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day pastries will be considered a health food.

At eight o’clock, a firm knock interrupted my reading.  I picked my way through the flower shop that our living room had become and opened the door.
“Oh good, you kept my peace offerings.”  Ull treated me to a rakish grin.
“Just a few of them,” I muttered.  “Come on in.”
“Oh, no.  You must come with me.”
“Why?”  I challenged.  Ull sighed.
“Are you going to fight me at every turn?”
“Please come.”  He looked so adorable standing on my stoop, his scarf casually thrown across the grey sweater under his coat.  I gave in quicker than I meant to. 
“Fine.”  I grabbed my coat from the closet by the door and shoved my keys and wallet into the pocket.

“Where are we off to?”  I closed the door behind me and followed Ull into the brisk night, waiting for his promised explanation. 
But he didn’t say anything.  Instead, he put his hand on the small of my back and guided me away from campus.  I shivered and noticed that Ull wore his jacket open, at ease in the chill.  As we rounded the corner, Ull dropped his hand to clasp mine.  It was so warm, so strong, and for a moment I forgot to be mad at him.  We walked in silence as he led me down the main road.  After two right turns, I found myself standing in a quiet garden.   

Here's the Elsker Book Trailer!

Sunday Social 6/23/13

        I had to call this post something, and it should be more like "Good Lord, where have I been?!"  Seriously, my only excuse can be that my life got in the way and I'm going to do better!  

       I figured what better way to get back into the swing of things than by joining Ashley and Neely for their weekly Sunday Social link up?  I love those ladies and they are great, so if you haven't already, check them out!!!

Sunday Social

I love Target, of course.  I also adore J.Crew, Nordstrom, Forever 21, Loft, and Anthropologie.

I don't think I can say only one!  I love Tory Burch, Louis Vuitton, Alice + Olivia, and anything by the late, great Alexander McQueen!!!

A great pair of riding boots, skinny jeans and a classic blazer!

Can we just say that it happened very recently?  My mom finally handed over her awesome Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 from the late 80's.  It's literally in perfect condition and will be loved by me forever!  


6. What is a style that you'd love to try?
