The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

A few weeks ago, while I was spending some time on StumbleUpon, I came across this post about the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, where taking part means reading all (or as many as possible) books Rory ever mentions throughout the show. I decided to give it a go and take part because of three reasons:
  1. I love Gilmore Girls! When I was still in school I loved to watch as many episodes as they would show. Also, I admire the way they sometimes integrate quotes from movies, books and songs into their conversations.
  2. I love reading. When I was younger people always told me to put that book away and do some sports or whatever.
  3. I love ticking things off lists.
And, after going through the list of books, I discovered that a lot of them are either older books or biographies, so I'll be learning a lot while reading. Usually, when reading, I tend to choose books that are romances, which naturally all end the same way, so I am quite excited to get to know other genres (and plots).

I opened up a new page, which you can find here, where you'll find a list of all the books to be read and already read. Also, I'll sporadically write posts to update on my progress.

Xoxo, enjoy your summer while reading a good book and getting tanned!

Nails, Nails, Nails

I've felt very creative throughout the last few weeks and created a few nail designs I thought it'd be nice to show them to you. Here they are, my little master pieces :)

About the first design, one of my professors actually told me that my nails looked like M&Ms.

The second design was intended to honor Chanel, as they are one of my favorite brands! (Although I couldn't really afford anything from Chanel until now ;)

And here is the last one, inspired by this creative tutorial by Cutepolish

What do you think of my creations? Do you like them? Let me know in the comment section!

Xoxo, see you soon!

PS: There's a beautiful blog presentation going on over at Carla-Laetitia's blog. Check it out and maybe even take part yourself!
