Big Brown & nothing else.

Image
Hey guys! I just thought I'd tell you that Big Brown............ (insert drumroll here as Sea would say)......... was adopted!
Happy. Sad. Bittersweet.
My family just found out that Big Brown is now owned by someone from Chicago (I don't know who). He is now a professional frisbee dog and I knowhe's enjoying it. All the time we had him, he always would bring you a tennis ball or rope toy for you to throw it to him. What irks me most is that we were not even contacted to say goodbye and we had no idea that When we had to give him up in October, I promised him that I would see him again some day (I know that sounds super sappy but I really miss him!) so if you know a chocolate lab who lives in Chicago who is a frisbee dog, let me know.

* * *A SMALL NOTE ABOUT BIG BROWN* * * Please know that Big Brown is not his real name  but I had to change it to conceal my identity as an aspiring author but now, as I am in a desperate search to at least see him even if it is in a picture, c…

The Book Thief

Image
Hello everybody! I'm sure you've all enjoyed your weekends! I know I sure have! I finished my book,  The Book Thief and I did a car wash that Sea mentioned on her blog. It was freezing! Anyway, I have to do this post quickly before beginning my homework, so here goes nothing. Oh and one more thing: notice the "What I'm currently reading" widget on the right side of my blog? Well, I put that there so you can get book suggestions and keep me accountable for blogging on all the books that I have read recently unless I decide not to blog on them because they weren't worth my time.

Maxi Neclaces

Image
Undeniably beautiful, striking, feminine, bold and laborious maxi necklaces are one of the most fashionable accessories of present time. Giving a special touch to the most basic looks, making a kind of diversion drawing the attention to the face; due to its magnificence, they should be worn with more minimal clothes items in order to avoid conflicting with embroideries or ruffles and to keep elegance. It's a powerful accessory that stresses difference, gives a trendy look, charm and life to duller outfits and that can do without belts, earrings or other adornments. It should be the main star of the look, but you're the one who's supposed to shine!

Or in my definition: Oversized necklaces that are totally "in" right now and probably cost more than their worth. They would look like bunkum on me, but on others who actually wear jewelry, absolutely gorgeous.
