What is your favorite store to shop at?
I love target. I can walk in there for one thing and come out with 5 bags full of things ! 
For clothes I would have to say Torrid . I went in there yesterday and couldn't help but spend some money in that store.There is something new in there always !.
And my for body sprays and candles  I love bath and body works especially when they have a sale on their candles . 

If you could afford anything and everything, which designer brand would you covet?
Tory Burch and Michael Kors 

Must have closet staple?
I have a long list of stuff. But I think every girl should have a great pair of jeans . The length is perfect and it make your butt look amazing !

Favorite kind of shoes? (brand or type)
I love a great flat . Something stylish and comfortable . I heard some great things about Tory Burch flats . I think I need to invest in a pair. 
Best clothing deal you’ve ever gotten? (sale or amazing find)
I got some torrid jeans ( never been worn) on ebay for $5 and those jeans are actually $60 
Style you’d love to try?
I feel like my style has been really safe lately . I would love to glam it up a lot more .
So I just want to step out of my box when it comes to style .

My Summer Reading List Part 1

1. Bridesmaid Lotto - Rachel Astor 
Josie is shocked to be picked in the Bridesmaid Lotto. Now how will she keep her true klutzy self from showing up for all the world to see?

2. The Causal Vacancy - J.K Rowling 
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.
Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty fa├žade is a town at war.
Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.
And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?
Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults

3. The Sassy Belles - Beth Albright 

Meet the Sassy Belles
They're strong as a mint julep, sweet as peach cobbler, and no matter what, they stick together.
There are only two seasons in Tuscaloosa—football and waiting-for-football. When Lewis Heart, football announcer and voice of the Crimson Tide, vanishes after an impromptu romp with Vivi Ann McFadden at the Fountain Mist Motel, Vivi does what any Southern woman would do: call her best friend, Blake O'Hara Heart, attorney-at-law.
With the town gossip swirling around them, Vivi and Blake are determined to find out what happened to Lewis and clear Vivi's reputation. Because after all, men may come and go, but the Sassy Belles are forever.
Not since Steel Magnolias have we fallen in love with such sexy, strong and hilarious Southern women. So grab your best girlfriends and join these Belles on the first of many joyrides through the Deep South….
4. Pastors' Wives - Lisa Takeuchi Cullen

What’s it like when the man you married is already married to God? asks Pastors’ Wives, an often surprising yet always emotionally true first novel set in a world most of us know only from the outside.
Lisa Takeuchi Cullen’s debut novel Pastors’ Wives follows three women whose lives converge and intertwine at a Southern evangelical megachurch. Ruthie follows her Wall Street husband from New York to Magnolia, a fictional suburb of Atlanta, when he hears a calling to serve at a megachurch called Greenleaf. Reeling from the death of her mother, Ruthie suffers a crisis of faith—in God, in her marriage, and in herself. Candace is Greenleaf’s “First Lady,” a force of nature who’ll stop at nothing to protect her church and her superstar husband. Ginger, married to Candace’s son, struggles to play dutiful wife and mother while burying her calamitous past. All their roads collide in one chaotic event that exposes their true selves. Inspired by Cullen’s reporting as a staff writer for Time magazine, Pastors’ Wivesis a dramatic portrayal of the private lives of pastors’ wives, caught between the demands of faith, marriage, duty, and love.

5. The Moon and More - Sarah Dessen 

Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.
Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.
Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?
Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?
Sarah Dessen's devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.

6. What Happen To Goodbye 
Since her parents' bitter divorce, Mclean and her dad, a restaurant consultant, have been on the move - four towns in two years. Estranged from her mother and her mother's new family, Mclean has followed her dad in leaving the unhappy past behind. And each new place gives her a chance to try out a new persona: from cheerleader to drama diva. But now, for the first time, Mclean discovers a desire to stay in one place and just be herself - whoever that is. Perhaps her neighbor Dave, an academic superstar trying to be just a regular guy, can help her find out. Combining Sarah Dessen's trademark graceful writing, great characters, and compelling storytelling, What Happened to Goodbye is irresistible reading

This is part one . I know I will finish these books fast. So I might have a part 2 with 3 or 4 books that I will post later after I finish these 6.
