What's Sara Reading? Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

I think I heard about Anna Kendrick's memoir, Scrappy Little Nobody, in late Spring. Then I pre-ordered it in the early summer. Then I waited until the late fall for it to be downloaded onto my Kindle. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to finally read it!

Bodies in the Sand, Tropical Drink Melting in Your Hand...

I have been home from Aruba for a couple weeks now but I am still dreaming about our week in paradise. It was beyond dreamy and I figured a post devoted to our experience was due!

We stayed at the Riu Palace Antillas, an all-inclusive adults-only resort right on the beach. Cody and I have never taken a destination vacation before (unless you count our weekend getaways to Vermont, NH, and Maine) and it was quite the experience.

Thankful in Voodoo Vixen's Judy Dress

Happy (early) Thanksgiving!

I wanted to share this beautiful Voodoo Vixen Judy dress for weeks now. It actually arrived on my door step the day before we left for Aruba and I didn't have the chance to even try it on before taking off. Once we got home, though, this puppy was taken out for a test run. I wore this for our  Friendsgiving that Cody and I host every year and plan to wear it for Thanksgiving later this week.

Storytime: LindyBop Book Print Bletchley Dress

While I may be dress obsessed, I am not always on the ball when it comes to hot new releases. I read my newsletters like any good retro gal does - LindyBop, Lady V London, Bernie Dexter, and PUG all sends them often to my delight. Sometimes, though, a few slip under the radar.

Including this one!

Lady V London Pink Flamingo Madison Dress in Paradise!

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I am back from my week in paradise. For those of you who don't know (and by now, I think the whole world knows), I was on vacation in Aruba with Cody for the past week. Boy, was I looking forward to it and boy, did we enjoy it!!

Ugly Apple Cookies

Happy November! It's not too late for an apple treat, is it? NO WAY, JOSE!

I figure, until Thanksgiving has come and gone, apples are still fair game.
