Summer Reading

So, recently I discovered my love for reading.

Once I realized it, it's consumed every moment of my "down" time. 
I don't watch tv (except for a few indulgences) and some nights I'm up until 3am to finish a page turner. 
I've read about 30 books in the span of a few months.
I'm not even kidding.

A few friends have been asking me for my book recommendations for summer reading
so I figured I'd share with you ALL! 
Good books are hard to come by!

I'm not going to include synopsis' for each book, but I will link to GoodReads for each one so you can check them and the reviews out! 

Flat-Out Love
Seriously cute and funny, shocking and romantic. LOVED IT!
It's really a refreshing story and I promise you, you will not find anything else like it!

Reason to Breathe (The Breathing Series, #1) Barely Breathing (The Breathing Series, #2)
This "Reason to Breathe" series isn't quite finished yet, as there's a 3rd book in the works, but it's worth reading these two any way! They're sad, dramatic, intense and lovely.

The Opportunist
Okay, once you read this you are going to want to reach through the screen and slap me in the face for it. I know. I've read it. BUT, it's amazing. It sticks with you and even 5 books later, this one still lingers in my mind. That's what good books do.
Also, there's a sequel in the works. So just sit back and enjoy this crazy ride of a book!

Slammed Point of Retreat
These poetry infused books are emotional, shocking and romantic. Loved them, and stayed up LATE finishing them!


If I Stay (If I Stay, #1) Where She Went (If I Stay, #2)
My only rule with these books is that you MUST buy them together. The first one ends on a big ol' cliffhanger, so just get both so you don't need an unnecessary panic attack.

Obviously, I've read a ton more, but I'd REALLY love some new books to add to my "to be read" so hit me up with suggestions!! 
Hopefully I haven't already read them!

Shower Curtains, eerie similarities & Master Bath Inspirations

I was beyond excited this week that while thrifting, 
I found the PERFECT shower curtain.

Usually, shower curtains would fall in the "ick" factor for thrifting for me, but a fabric one requiring a liner, passes in my books!

It's the Nautica Aarondale Shower Curtain, retails for $40, got it for $9.99! 
Typically, anything over $5 in thrifting I look over, but it's pretty much brand new 
(if not BRAND spanking new - this I will never know).



Nautica Aarondale Drape

Anyone else notice it's eerily similar to my blog background?
craaaazy.

Anyway,
I'm hoping to pair them with these:
Carnation Home Fashions Sheffield Ceramic Resin Shower Curtain Hook
I found them at HomeSense for $7.99...but haven't bought them, yet.

Here's the bathroom as the current owners have it:

I love how Clarendon Lane did her main bath, everything is pretty BANG ON what I'd like, except I haven't embraced GOLD yet...I'm sure I will, eventually.

I also love these looks:


I'm ready to tackle new spaces in the new house. 
It's pretty much a blank canvas that I can't wait to get my hands on.


Also, quick shop update...you can see these newbies and more now!
