Book Review: When Life Gives you Lemons by Lauren Weisberger


from ellecanada.com

Have you watched The Devil Wears Prada? Just in case you didn’t know, it started as a book which was then turned into a movie. Lauren Weisberger is the author of many great chick lit books that I have thoroughly enjoyed.

When Life Gives you Lululemons did not disappoint. It was a quick and easy read which made it perfect for the beach. It follows 3 women who knew each other from their teenage years or earlier on in their lives. One was the senior assistant from Miranda Priestly – the devil herself, the other was a famous model who met Miranda’s assistant when she worked at Runway, and the third was a friend from camp.

We follow one woman through a high profile divorce from a man who intended to run for office and set her up terribly. The other woman quit her job to move to the ‘burbs to raise her three kids, and of course thought that her husband was cheating on her. The third’s career was heading from the dump and was hell bent on never having kids and lo and behold she winds up pregnant – which I could figure out before she did.

As usual, all is well that ends well. A chick lit book would not be chick lit if it ended on an unhappy note. I won’t go into details and spoil it for you but it was definitely worth the read.

If you read it, let me know what you think!

Outfit Post: with love from Guyana cape top + skinny pants

I am super excited to share this specific outfit post with you all. Depending on how long you’ve been following my journey here on this little space you’d know that I have slowly been learning how to sew. Today, I am happy to share another outfit with a piece made by yours truly!

It started out as a sketch. Once I embarked on this journey to teach myself to sew my sister surprised me with a sketch book for me to get the ideas of what I wanted to create out of my head and down on to paper. I wanted to create a voluminous cape top and pair them with super skinny pants below. I kept the cape just a little short so that there would be a peek a boo effect.
