Hi Everyone! Today I'm guest posting over on Katie's Blog, His Diamond and Mine and I'd love for you to stop by and check it out!
In other news, today is the first link-up for the wonderful blogger book club that I'm a part of, Cover 2 Cover! I'll be linking up with Ashley at Everyday AEM and Crystal at Coffee at Nordstrom along with many others for our first book review.
This month's book: How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World by Jordan Christy
1. What do you think is the most important piece of advice that Jordan Christy gave in this book?
I think one of the most important bits of advice in the book was the title of chapter 4, "Choose Your Friends Wisely." During the past year, I have learned so much about people that I originally thought were my friends and then showed their true colors.

p134 "Great style starts with always looking your best, no matter what day, time, or occasion."
p135 "People always remember a chic and classy outfit, so when in doubt, dress it up."
4. What do you hate most about how our modern day media portrays women? Which celebrity do you dislike the most?
I've never been much of a celebrity follower, but the way that the media portrays what is beautiful amazes me. No person should think that they have to be a size 00 to be perfect. There are so many beautiful women out there that think they have so be this small to be considered beautiful and it's really sad. I don't really dislike any certain celebrities, but there are some that I think serve as a great example to young women, such as:
