It's Labor Day! Which means that no one goes to work in this country. Now ain't that the darndest thing? Don't get me wrong, I am more than happy to have the day off. I'm going to sleep in, try to make some kind of order out of the new apartment and maybe hit up a movie. And then it's only a four day work week. Life is good.
A couple of Labor Day items of business...
1. Winner of the August group giveaway is Karen Thuen Hansen. Congrats Karen! Be on the look out for emails from me and August's sponsors.
2. Book club discussion for Life of Pi was supposed to be last Wednesday. But then I didn't finish it due to moving/ starting new job/ other stressful life happenings. I'm sorry for being a slacker. New book club date for Life of Pi will be Friday, September 6th. The book discussion will usually be the last Thursday of the month but Halloween, Thanksgiving and December 26 all fall on the last Thursday for the month, so we'll just shoot for a day close by.
September: Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls (Discussion September 26)
October: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
November: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
December: We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver
If you have finished Life of Pi for August go ahead and get started on Glass Castle. It's one of my absolute favorites!
3. Have y'all heard of Brickyard Buffalo? Basically it's the best thing that ever happened to shopping. It's an online pop-up shop that features awesome vendors and their products at a discounted price. Each sale lasts just a few days and quantities are always limited so basically if you see something you love you just buy and don't think twice. Luckily prices are low enough that it shouldn't break the bank. This week for seven days only they are offering free shipping which NEVER happens, so go buck wild chicas! I have been living in this pair of leggings since I got them- I can wear them up for going out or wear them down for pjs... anything goes!
And of course they have other amazing things in their shop...
Make sure to take advantage of the free shipping this week!
