FINE DIMES: SPRINGTIME

Fine-Dimes-Springtime

Hey hey hey!  Check out some of my favorite things from the past few weeks.

This bag has been my favorite purchase recently.

I had been wanting a BIG, versatile purse.  To me that usually means black, white, tan or gray.  I was having trouble deciding which color to get because I am very indecisive…especially when it comes to the little things.  Then I came across this reversible tote.  How long have these existed?!?  This one happened to be in black and cognac.  Ummmm score (!!!)  I didn’t think twice.  It was meant to be.   This basically goes with everything I own.  I have been using it daily and love the little wristlet thing that comes with it.  They also have this in other color options too in case you want the benefit of 2 bags in one, but would rather have some pink and aqua colors in your life.

 I freaking love the bamboo trees in Miami.  It’s a weird little obsession of mine  (one of many).   They’re so pretty and I love the color of these bamboo.  The black bamboo ones are pretty badass as well.  I’ll have to get a pic of those the next time I’m there.  Now if only I could bring one back to my house. 

I saw this coffee table book at a friends house. Not only is it a perfect blend of chic and rocker, the book has a cloth textured cover which makes the whole thing soft and bendy.   Weird description, but once you get your hands on it, you’ll know what I’m talking about.  I am always on the hunt for a good coffee table book and this one just made my list.

Here are 2 books I’ve read recently and loved.

I  finished #Girlboss last month and it was very motivating and inspirational.  It’s an easy read that makes you want to run the world and kick some ass.  This is one of those books that you can read once a year and get something out of it every time.

I bought The Intern’s Handbook at the airport before my flight to Miami last month and so far it’s great.  The description is, “A sexy, darkly comic thriller” and I think that nails the essence of the book.  It’s about an assassin who is the best at his game and is on his final mission.  He documents his last assignment along with tips for all of the newcomer assassins. I kept chuckling to myself on the plane while I was reading.  Very witty and entertaining.  I haven’t finished it yet, but so far so good.

I love stumbling upon a great book.

These are a few things I’ve been loving this month.  The weather has been making a change for the better lately so I am really looking forward to Spring and Summer and everything that comes with it.
