Saturday Sinfuls

3 Things I love this Saturday!

Jergens - Natural Glow Body Lotion

The sinful way of tanning without the bad rays of the sun!
Not only are you doing your body good with keeping it hydrated but also you 
can keep a sun kissed glow all year long.


Sex and The City dvd box set

Love, Love, Love Carrie Bradshaw!  
This box set is a sinful way to spend your Saturday lounging around.


Time with my cat - GUS!

He has been under the weather lately so time spent with him is more precious than ever.
We like to snuggle-boo on the couch and watch 
Sex and The City.

back to the basics...

I have a million books!
(Well, not really a million but, close ;)

Since I was was a little girl, I have always dreamt of having 
a library like the one pictured below.
Filled to the brim with each genre.

I found this picture and sat 
staring at the intricate detail of each book on the shelves.
The color, size and height of each making it's mark.

The more I looked,
the more I realized this picture reminds me
 of my love for books & reading.

I used to have time to sit and read...
I have piles of books on my night stand, 
in the bathroom in a basket and 
almost on every surface in my house 
waiting for me to pick them up.

I have been trying to go back to the basics 
by taking a little time out of each day to spend reading.

The sinful feeling of holding an actual book in hand 
flipping page by page until the story unfolds.
There is nothing like it in my opinion!

If you are like me, love to read & 
don't have a lot of time to devote, 
take some time today to pick up a book that
you have been neglecting...

Read a few pages and put the book somewhere where 
you can take a few minutes each day 
to devote to getting back to the basics.

I used to be a slave to Vintage finds...
I had my favorite thrift shops, estate sales and antique rows 
that I would frequent to snap up my next favorite find.

One of my loves: 

~ Vintage Suitcases ~

I have a slew of different shapes, sizes and colors 
packed away in my attic.
dusty & abandoned

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of different ways in which
people are bringing them back into style.  
And, honestly, I can't wait to dig mine out 
& give them a new life!

Take a look:

They are like pieces of Art!
