Shopaholic To The Stars

I have loved every book I’ve read by Sophie Kinsella.

This one took me a few weeks to finish.  I wasn’t liking Becky in this book and that was bothering me.

She was so self involved it was painful.

To make it worse the ending is a cliff hanger and now we need to wait for the next book to find out what happens to her Dad and to Suze’s husband.

Worst ending EVER.

From Amazon:

Sophie Kinsella returns to her beloved Shopaholic series with Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) newly arrived in Hollywood and starry-eyed. She and her two-year-old daughter, Minnie, have relocated to L.A. to join Becky’s husband, Luke, who is there to handle PR for famous actress Sage Seymour. Becky can’t wait to start living the A-list lifestyle, complete with celebrity sightings, yoga retreats, and shopping trips to Rodeo Drive. But she really hopes to become a personal stylist—Sage’s personal stylist—if only Luke would set up an introduction. Then, unexpectedly, Becky is offered the chance to dress Sage’s archrival, and though things become a bit more complicated, it’s a dream come true!

Red carpet premieres, velvet ropes, paparazzi clamoring for attention—suddenly Becky has everything she’s ever wanted.

Or does she?

At Least Today Will Be Quiet


How can one small person make so much noise?!

Noisy.  That’s the name I call my annoying co-worker.

She was off last week and omg it was so quiet!!!

Generally she is a good person.  Except that she is noisy.

From the minute she arrives to the moment she leaves she is making noise.  Not normal noise either.

Arrival:  Says good morning in a normal voice.

Throws multiple bags down onto her desktop.

Opens and slams drawers for no reason.

Gets up, sighs loudly and disappears for about five minutes.

Comes back and proceeds to type on her keyboard like she is hammering nails.

That goes on for about two hours.

Then it’s breakfast time.

Cereal box, open drawer and slam it shut.

Rustle, rustle, rustle, rustle with the box for about five minutes.

Pour cereal in bowl finally.

Slam chair into desk while going to get milk.

Eat cereal loudly for fifteen minutes while constantly banging metal spoon against ceramic bowl.

Put bowl down loudly on desktop after each mouthful.


Finish cereal and drop bowl on desktop.

Drop spoon into bowl.

sigh loudly.

Irony.  Today noisy complained about someone else making noise!

I had tears in my eyes from laughing so loud!!!  omg!!!

At least today will be quiet, because noisy is OFF!

Get me Demarchelier!

I love The Devil Wears Prada.

Must’ve heard this line at least two hundred times.

“Get me Demarchelier!”

I knew it was a character called Patrick Demarchelier.

But, did I know it was a real person?  NOPE

Not until today that is.

While scrolling through Instagram a BEAUTIFUL turquoise blue Louis Vuitton bag caught my eye!!!

It’s so pretty!!!!!

But….what’s that??!  It’s photographed by Patrick Demarchelier!

He’s a brilliant fashion photographer!

The bag is AMAZING!!!!

Burger & Lobster London

burger and lobster london

Oh my!!!!

Oh MY!!!!!

How is it that I just heard about this restaurant today?!

How long has it been in London?

Was it there in 2009 on my last visit???!!

This place serves two things only.  Lobster and burgers.  Lobster roll, whole lobster or a burger.


I guess there are locations in New York too, but here in New England we have the best seafood already.

But while on vacation in London and feeling homesick???  LOBSTER!!!!!

Clearly if I ever get back to London I’ll be checking this place out!!!
