Archive for the ‘Your Reading Fixation’ Category

For the last four years, I have been faithfully purchasing Seventeen Magazine every month and reading each issue over and over until they were memorized. Each time I looked at the fashion section, I thought, “When am I ever going to wear that?!”, but still thinking that since it was Seventeen, so of course it HAD to be amazing.  Taking a closer look at every issue, they LOVE to mix different things. For example, they really press mixing prints. Which is totally fine! I love mixing prints. But they take it to a new extreme. To be honest, I have never worn anything relatively close to any of their outfits, as most of them are sort of outrageous.

Don’t get me wrong, I love when they talk DIY and have new hairstyles and new ways to wear your clothes. But something about it, I’m not sure. I think I’m moving on to “older” magazines. Hello, Lucky, Marie Claire and In Style! I feel these help me more with my fashion, as I like more timeless pieces rather than the latest, of-the-moment style tips that Seventeen provides.

Thank you, Seventeen. You got me started on my fashion obsession, and I will always love you for that. Sadly, I think I’m growing up, therefore I am moving on.

I think I might have made that more emotional than I needed to. But you guys catch my drift.

Happy Monday! [Not.]

So I absolutely loved Louise Rennison’s first series, The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, and I mean I LOVED it. I’m actually re-reading it as we speak. (or read, or write, or…) This book, Withering Tights, is such a great read! It was hilarious, just as I suspected from good old Louise, and it was very cute. If you liked the confessions, you sure will love this. Although, I must say, The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson will always hold a special place in my heart as my favourite books of all time.

Right, well there you go! This book is fabbity fab, and I simply can’t wait for the next one.

Happy Sunday! :]

  This book, written by Suzanne Selfors, is a very nice daily read, for those of you who may have extra time on your hands. It is a feel-good book, about a mysterious boy who drops by this girls’ coffee shop, then her life goes upside down. I recommend it. :] enjoy!

I love reading. I lot. One day, I realized that reading has to be good for you, somehow. So as a result, being the know-it-all that I am, I researched the benefits of reading. Here’s what I came up with.

1-Reading improves your vocabulary. As your reading, you are exposed to words that you don’t use in your everyday vocab.

2-Reading helps you focus.  When you read, you get the whole story, and it takes concentration.  As a result, you get better at concentrating.

3-Reading may improve your memory. Many studies show if you don’t use your memory, you lose it. Reading  helps you stretch your memory muscles. Reading requires remembering details, facts and figures and in literature, plot lines, themes and characters.

4- Books are portable. You can take them almost anywhere. As such, you can learn almost anywhere too.

5 If you read a lot of books, you’ll always have something to talk about. You can discuss various plots in the novels you read, you can discuss the stuff you are learning in the business books you are reading as well. The possibilities of sharing are endless.This will also you seem smarter then you already are. :]

6- Reading can decrease boredom. I mean, if you’re bored anyway, you might as well be reading a good book, right?

7- Reading can improve your creativity. Science fiction can broaden your mind, thus broadening your creativity!

I recently read one of Sophie Kinsella’s amazing books; The Undomestic Goddess. It was a fabbity fab book!  When you read it, you really don’t want to put it down. Every page leaves you wanting more! It took me about a week to read it. A great, well-written, funny read. You should definitely read it.
