My brother is a HUGE Lego fan and I wanted to play and build some lego buildings myself. So here I am, with my brother, trying to bulid a lego train. We had a great time together and I can't wait to bulid legos with my brother again!

Read A new Manga

It's called Caramel Kiss and it's a great story... but I don't recommend this book to people who hate a lot of romance, because trust me, there's alot. I do recommend it to people who love fantasy and so far there is 18 chapters, and I can't wait to read chapter 19!

i finally got to watch my show "NOVA" great show must watch

I got to shake Jim Gill's hand! :)

Geeking out on Wardrobe books

We've been going through a massive reorganization of our house this summer and it's caused me to rethink my wardrobe.  I would love for it to be more versatile.  So far I've read...

Shop your closet: the ultimate guide to organizing your closet with style by Melanie Charlton Fascitelli with Kevin Clark — The book that started the geek out.  I was looking for books on organizing closet space and ended up with this one that also devotes chapters to cleaning out your closet, packing a suitcase and shopping

The one hundred: a guide to the pieces every stylish woman must own by Nina Garcia ; illustrations by Ruben Toledo — This book is interesting but some of the things considered "essentials" are really silly...Missoni stripes a neccessity?  Maybe not so much

What I Wore by Jessica Quirk.   I love her blog and she gives lots of good ideas for building outfits
according to season. I had to interlibrary loan it.

The No-Brainer Wardrobe by Hayley Morgan. An eBook I bought off her website for $8.  Hayley gives a historical background to the clothing market, and explains how to build a wardrobe that can be changed around to build multiple outfits.  She also gives tips on shopping at Second Hand Stores or Trendy low price stores like Old Navy or Target.  I put it on my Kindle and I won't be deleting it!
