Memorial Day Weekend Outfit + 3 Books I've Read This Month.

     Sharing a darling (and affordable!) off-the-shoulder dress for summer today, and it's also one of my very last photoshoots from when I lived in Charlotte! I'm also sharing a quick review of the three books that I've read in the past month from my local library.

      This darling off the shoulder dress was another fun fashion find on my Italy trip a couple months ago. It's finally getting warm enough here in Vermont to wear things like this, but I was able to wear it a bit in Charlotte before I moved! This dress is lightweight and made of a very comfortable material. The retailer that I bought it at in Italy is an international store that ships to the US, and the dress is priced at under $30 in USD! It also comes in 3 other colors. 😊 I think the pretty blue and white pattern is perfect especially as a Memorial Day Weekend outfit option, and could also be cute for the 4th of July in a couple months. 


     Since moving to Vermont, I've been trying to get back into reading in my spare time! I grew up as a total bookworm, but my love of reading had to be put on hold for a few years in college. Ah college- the period of life where there just aren't enough hours in the day! Anyways, now that I finally have a fairly set schedule at work and free evenings most weeknights, I've been trying to prioritize reading again. I enjoy reading all types of books, but since this month I was still settling into my new home and job, I wanted some light and girly "beach" type reads. These are the three books that I read from my local library in the past month! 


     *Jemima J by Jane Green: This book was written and is set in the late 90s, and it's about the very beginnings of the online dating world. The main character, Jemima, is British, and she meets someone in an online dating chatroom from the US. It chronicles her relationship with him, and also a real-life relationship with one of her colleagues. This wasn't the best book I've ever read and I found the ending to be predictable, but I did think it was interesting to read about the early days of the online dating scene, with dating apps and websites continuing to pop up and be used at such an explosive pace now in 2017.


     *How To Meet Cute Boys by Deanna Kizis: This book is about a young woman who works for a women's magazine (Kind of like a fictional version of Cosmopolitan), and how her work ties in with her meeting a mysterious guy. I thought I would really enjoy this book.... but I actually hated it, and only got halfway through it. There was a lot of bad language and sexual content in this book. Obviously both of those things are present in many books, including some of my favorite reads, but I think they only have a place if it really adds to the story or character development. In this case, it did not, and the author seemed to use it only because the story wasn't that exciting, so I lost interest and thought the main character seemed a bit crude. 


     *Little Bitty Lies by Mary Kay Andrews: My favorite book from the library this time around! I don't think I've read anything by Mary Kay Andrews before but hopefully that will be changing now. This book tells the story of Mary Bliss McGowan, a well-to-do Atlanta wife and mother, whose husband mysteriously disappears one day. This book is both funny, heartfelt, and also romantic, and has a fun plot. I also loved the fact it was set in the South... I miss it! 


     These books and cute off the shoulder dresses are linked below! I hope that y'all have enjoyed your long weekend so far! I had to work overtime this weekend to cover radio shifts for some of my station's other on-air personalities (perks of being the new girl at work- ha!), but it was still an enjoyable weekend.







    
     God Bless,



     xoxo Annaliese (or Charlotte XO on the radio!)

    1. DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

      It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of generalspelltemple@gmail.com finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.

    2. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and
      we had been dating for 6 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr. Okaya by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.Okaya. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.Okaya for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too.OKAYASPELLHELP@GMAIL.COMcall/Whatsapp +27814506790

  6. Isn't it funny how in some books swearing and sexual content aren't bothersome because it really is natural in the story and in other books it is just obnoxious because it's just thrown in almost to be crass. There is DEFINITELY a difference! I'm happy at least one of your library books didn't disappoint. Such a cute off the shoulder dress too (:

  16. So weird about that second book, I don't know why authors decide that adding steamy scenes will make the story seem better if it has a tanking plot! In other news, haha I love that dress!

  24. How To Get Your Lost Husband Back and beware of scam only Dr Lucky can help you

    “LOVE is the key to LIFE”. That was the word from Dr Lucky when I consulted his powerful Love Temple. I married the wrong man; I realized that after four years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr Lucky from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him via Realspellcasteronline@gmail.com and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and Luckys in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr Lucky. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr Lucky told us “LOVE is the key to LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr Lucky is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank you great Dr Lucky and your Oracle for helping us via Realspellcasteronline@gmail.com and I will keep spreading this message to people in need of help. also contact him for help no fake no scams Goodbye
