Burgers, Cleaning, and Antique Shopping

Hello everyone!

I am back from my vacation! It wasn't a vacation in the sense of palm trees and swimming, but I did have a break from technology (no internet, and I only have an iPod) AND I got to see two of my awesome family members who live two-thousand miles away. I'm going to go through some of my favorite parts of what I did! :)

Hello!

As you are reading this, I am probably on vacation. I won't have internet, and I'll be gone for two weeks, so I won't be approving or replying to comments until I get back. Please do leave comments, though, as I love reading them! It makes my day!

Today's post is going to be a wrap-up of the month of June. If you're interested in what I've been up to this month, just keep reading!

Small Bookshelf Tour

Hello! Welcome back!

Me being the bookworm I am, I thought it would be fun to show you guys my many bookshelves and how I organize my (quite large) book collection. My first one is very small and doesn't hold a lot. I thought it would be a good shelf to start with.

I'll be talking about the books on the shelf and showing pictures of some of my favorites! (A lot of them are really neat vintage ones . . . ;])



If you're interested, then just keep reading!

Netflix's Anne With An E: Review

Hello everyone!

I just finished watching the new Netflix original TV show, Anne With an E, which is supposedly based off the beloved classic Anne of Green Gables, which I have read twice. Although I do like the 1985 version, I didn't LOVE it, so I decided to see if this would meet my expectations any better.

I know a lot of people have been wondering whether it's worth watching, so I thought I'd do a review of it. Let's get started!



[Just a note, this review isn't completely spoiler-free. This is for the people who are dedicated fans of the book and have been wondering about this version. It also has content warnings. Yes, I must put them in this review. Yes, 'tis a sad thing.]

May 2017 Wrap-Up

Hello everyone!

Sorry about the lack of a post last week. I had absolutely nothing prepared, and I'm not used to preparing posts on-the-fly anymore. To make up for it, I'll have two posts this week -- this one, and a review of the new Netflix original Anne With an E. 

Anyway, today's post is going to be a wrap-up of this month. Let's get right into it!

Schoolgirl Skirt + My New Etsy Shop

Hello everyone!









Skirt: ThisBlueBird
Necklace: Khols
Shoes: Walmart (Hey, they were $5.00 and they are the best pair of loafers ever! How could I turn them down?!)

I received an Etsy gift card for my birthday from my aunt. After a few days figuring out what clothes I wanted, I finally ordered two pieces that I thought would go together. I am very happy with the way they look. The brown sweater is also SO soft, guys, and so comfy!!
I've had the necklace for awhile. I actually got it to go with another skirt I purchased from Etsy (which you may or may not see in the future). I thought it would go nicely with the outfit, and it adds the perfect touch.

***

So, I have some exciting news! I'm opening an Etsy shop to go with this blog. That is also something I had been wanting to do for a long time, so I'm thrilled to finally make it happen.

Although I only have five listings so far, I have opened the place. I have some nice vintage gloves listed, plus a couple 1960's books, among other goodies. Until May 22nd, 2017 you can get 10% off your order with the code OPEN1. Check it out here! :)

Thanks for reading!
