Currently Reading

My tastes in literature vary. I like all kinds of books, from the classics to thrillers to chick lit. What I don't usually read is non-fiction. But I made an exception for Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers. I loved the HBO mini-series based on the book so I gave it a shot. I've just started reading it but so far so very good.

Roman Holiday

 The boy & I went for a 3 and a half day mini-break to Rome. It was awesome. Perhaps a bit too short but I think we managed to see everything and do a bit of shopping. ;) I kept my wardrobe simple. A lot of black.
 I love this dress.

I really wanted to buy this guy but in the end I resisted. I kinda miss him, what can I say? I'm a piggy lover.

Fifty Shades

okay, so I just finished it and it was... interesting. I liked the dark parts (and I'm not talking about the word-by-word descriptions of utopian sex - honestly, as if!) and it read really well, a real page-turner. But at times it felt so juvenile! Like it was intended for thirteen year olds - the way that Ana and Christian sometimes acted, I felt like they should just grow up and get real. But I'm glad it had a happy ending :) though I still think the ending to the movie The Secretary is a thousand times better! way more dark. very chic.
