Its now confirmed that Style36 is no longer. The online shop has closed its doors :( This is a sad reality for those of us who had come to rely on online shops like Style36 for our fashion needs.

Thrifting was never something I used to do. I have been inspired by some of my blogger friends who find the most amazing pieces in thrift shops. I always envied this weird habit of shopping from other peoples closets - I of course never thought I could do it. Until I started..its the most thrilling thing. Going through a rack of super cheap and previously owned clothing, hoping to find a gem and then finding that gem.
I love the experience of reading a new book- feeling like I’m part of the character's life. Living through their sorrows and celebrating their joys. I love being obsessed with a book, thinking about it every chance I get and looking forward to going home and curling up with it on the couch.
I am not one for book clubs, I always imagined that belonging to a book club would bring a sense of anxious urgency to finish reading the book and that the pleasure of a lazy leisurely read would be given up. I also imagine a pesky lady who brings the muffins to book club and calls ever so often to make sure you've moved 3 chapters since the last meeting.
I prefer to have the option to abandon a read that I feel is draining me instead of gripping and inspiring without explanation.
I will admit having a friend to discuss a good read with is wonderful, it just brings more life to the story and a different view to your own - I guess that is why book clubs were started to begin with.
I am starting my own book club with anonymous membership and with really no structured plan or reading list. This is my way of being that pesky lady to myself- I would like to dedicate as much time to reading as I do watching Pretty Little liars and the Walking dead.
I will share with you my favorite books as well as the embarrassing growing list of abandoned books that are collecting dust on my book shelf. I hope you will also share with me what books made an impact in your life.
Check out my Book Club page ever so often and let’s start reading and sharing.
