I'm currently reading The Art of Racing in the Rain, which I didn't even read the description or Goodreads it which I usually do before I read a book, because it came so highly recommended from so many people.  I didn't know what to expect except that it was written from the perspective of a dog which I thought I'd really enjoy.  Well turns out, I love the book but I can barely get through a few chapters without crying!  I have to put the book down and walk away even though I love reading it but I'm continuously crying!  I really try hard not to but next thing I know I'm bawling.  Hubs can hear me sniffling away and he doesn't even have to look, he knows I'm reading the book.  haha!  On another note, I found out that I could borrow e-books from the library to read on my iPad which has saved me tons of money!  I never was one to borrow actual books from the library and I switched to e-books when I got my Nook 2 years ago (which I still love) so I never looked into borrowing from the library until a few months ago when I stumbled upon the fact that my library had tons of e-books to lend out.  They don't have as much as a selection as Barnes and Noble and you do have to get on a waiting list for more popular books, I think I had to be waitlisted for a month for The Art of Racing, but it doesn't bother me to wait.  I love it and the best part is, it's free, even the app!  My library uses the Overdrive app to read books on iPad and Nook.  I'm not sure how other libraries do it, but if you have an iPad/e-reader, it's worth checking out how your library lends out e-books!

  6. Just by reading the title I knew I'd love it, and of course I did! I'm so into polka dots right now, the necklace glams it up just perfectly! When I read I get so much into the story that sometimes is inevitable to read, the book sounds great, I'll put it on my winter reading list!

  10. I am a huge Chanel fan. Sadly... I recently consigned several in order to get a camera that is on my wish-list... :) Your stitch bag is beautiful, and your jewelry is amazing! Great job!

  17. Love this outfit!

    And I didn't know you could check out ebooks for the ipad! I use Overdrive to listen to audiobooks I check out, but for some reason I thought I wouldn't be able to get the ebooks. I'll have to take a look into that now :) Are you using KCLS or the Seattle Library system? What kind of format do you download them in? Do you need a special app to read the books? haha, so many questions! :)

  18. great look! I'm so wanting that top. Maybe I'll get lucky the next time I visit a F21 store.

  19. @kimmie I use the Seattle Library. Apparently since I live in Seattle, I'm not allowed to download e-books from the KCLS. Silly right? So go on to this website http://spl.lib.overdrive.com/ and then just search and checkout from there. The iPad uses the Adobe EPUB eBook so just look for books with that type of download, which is most books they have.

    I usually just browse from my iPad when I checkout and there's a button to download and it automatically gets loaded into the Overdrive. After 21 days, it disappears and returns itself. Super easy!

  20. Hey Tiff! I think it's awesome that you can borrow books from a library and read them on your ipad. I didn't know that! I learned something new. That's why I love connecting with other bloggers. Loving your polka dot top and those heels are fab girl. Hope you're having a great Monday! :D

  22. Cute top!

    I think I am going to have to read that book - after I buy a box of tissues :D

    Thanks for the heads up regarding the library ebooks. Ebooks do get kind of expensive - I really hate paying for a $12 book knowing full well that I will read it once and never read it again. So this is great news!

  25. aww - i love/hate books like that. now that i know how emotional that one is i will probably pass as lately i've been in a fluffy/happy/very light entertainment type of mood.

    i love this outfit and how you are so good at pairing high and low. you'd never ever know the blouse was from f21! really great find!

  26. I love your polka dot top! i have this thing with polka dots, lol...and gorge necklace:)

    Wow, i didnt know about that e book service in libraries...so high tech eh! Wonder if Hong Kong libraries offer that kinda service???? hahaha

    I've not heard of that book you mentioned but i should definitely see what it is about. I cry easily so hopefully i won't be needing a box of tissues if i ever do read it, lol
