Your Guide to Style

Lately I have not had much time to read lengthy novels but these style books are on my current reading list and they will be perfect for my upcoming air travel.

1. Pia Me by Pia Jacobsen. I bought this book but I have not had a chance to read it yet.

2. Lauren Conrad Style Guide.  I saw this book in Urban Outfitters and it looked pretty good. This may be my next purchase.

3. Oh No She Didn't: The Top 100 Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them by Clinton Kelly.   My colleague Sandy was so sweet and thoughtful to send me this book as a thank you for being her mentor the past few months.  Sandy had the wonderful opportunity to attend a book signing with Clinton Kelly and she managed to get me a signed copy of the book.  Some of the topics he discusses are muffin tops, mom jeans, scrunchies, suntan hose, and visible panty lines. I think this is going to be a good read!  

4. Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family and Finding the Perfect Lipstick by Molly Ringwald. This book was on sale at Barnes and Noble and so I picked this up. It's a quick, easy, and light read.


Are you currently reading any interesting books?

And a very special thank you to my husband who gave me this (also here) because he thought I would love it and he wanted to thank me for making him a smoothie and coffee every morning.   So to all you lovely ladies -make sure you husband's and boyfriend's are reading your blogs!

Happy Halloween!

I am still reading my novels. I will pick these books up when I have travels ahead of me ... I like reading short non fiction then! :) Love your gifts you lucky girl! :)

Sara Bentley @ Purses Pastries Etc... said...

I'm actually trying.. trying... to read Jane Austen's Mansfield Park -- never read it before but saw the BBC series... It was good but I don't think that counts as reading the original book though :/
These all look good and the Molly Ringwald book sounds interesting. I need more hours in the day in order to squeeze in book reading time!!

Pop Champagne said...

I read Lauren Conrad's LA candy, it was an easy book to read and entertaining enough. I sort of want to get this one as well for my flight back at christmas

Croatian_Latina said...

I love to watch what not to wear so I may put Clinton Kelly's book on my christmas list. WOW your hubby bought you that amazing necklace! Niceeee. you know you just gave me an idea to send hints to hubby as he does read my blog. haha. hmmmm,you got me thinking.

Annie said...

omg that necklace is gorgeous!! How sweet of your husband. I hope you have a wonderful weekend together! I'm reading too many books at once and have to start focusing on finishing 1. haha. I just got the new IN STYLE - sooo looking forward to reading that this weekend.

alison (semi-fab lane) said...

these look like cute reads. lc is really blowin' up with her second book, wow!

Katy Mary said...

I really want to read Lauren's book, let me know how it is!!

Audrey Allure said...

I definitely want to read Lauren's book sometime soon!

Elle Sees said...

no but i peeped lc's book. it looks good.

Nikki said...

Hi Naina!
These look like fun reads. Im also looking for a new one.
About the apple cake- I followed the recipe exact, but next time I would add more sugar- just a few more pinches) and add more applesauce- (just another 2-3 teaspoons.) I was also thinking that mashing a banana and adding it to the cake mixture would be awesome- it was a tiny bit bland in my opinion, although the guys eating it couldn't get enough!
The walnuts also make a big difference, I would def suggest using them.
Good Luck! and cant wait to hear how it turns out!
Have a fab weekend!

Torrie said...

All of those books seriously look good.

I'm definitely purchasing the Molly Ringwald first- Love her, and this sounds perfect for me:).

Thanks for sharing!!

Valerie said...

All of these books sound fabulous. I definitely want to read LC's and Clinton Kelly's. I just started reading a chick-lit book by Jennifer Weiner called Best Friends Forever. I'm sure it will be fluffy and girly, not very substantial (exactly what I'm in the mood for currently). Okay, your husband is a gem. That necklace is GORGEOUS! What a great thank you gift. It always makes me feel good to know that Gabe's reading my blog. It makes me feel supported. ;) Hope you have a great weekend, Naina!

Sabina said...

Hahaha, my boyfriend never reads my blog, he finds it silly :)) But that's fine, because when I sleep over I get breakfast into bed and kisses :))) I never got such a great book though! :))
I like your blog, I hope you're going to take the time to visit mine - I have a feeling you'll like it :)) Can't wait to hear from you and of course feel free to follow me anytime (if you like my blog of course :))! <3

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

i just bought 2 new books - but haven't cracked them open - 1 is called 'prozac nation' (alot of people heard of it) and the other i forget .. i don't read fashion books - i just like to look at pictures .. when i read i usually read books that help me grow to be a better person ...

style'n said...

@Erika-ha ha you are funny! until I started this blog I didn't buy many fashion books either! But they are great for the airplane or when you dont' have too much time. My husband just read Barbara Strauchs' The Secret LIfe of the Grown-Up Brain. It looks intriguing so it will be my next read. Have a great weekend!! Naina

Bonnie said...

I sound like such a loser because I love the Beckham family, but Victoria Beckham has a pretty great fashion book. I don't remember the title, but it is really good. Highly recommended!

Katie said...

I need to pick up Clinton Kelly's book!

bollywoodstylediaries said...

ummm, can ur husband talk to mine:-)

Let me know how the conrad and kelly books are..they sound interesting and would love to know what a guy thinks about muffin tops!!

My Republic of Fashion said...

I am sort of bad when it comes to reading books. I read and re-read the same ones sometimes...woops!! haha ;)SarahD

style-haus said...

the lauren conrad and molly ringwald books look like interesting reads. lovely bones and the eclipse series (yes i khow!) were the last books i've read. the girl with the dragon tattoo trilogy sounds so dark and intriguing that that's probably next on my list. also jane fonda's new book "my life so far" is something i'd like to pick up.

I hope you have a great weekend, Naina. How sweet of your husband to give you that necklace :)
The Chef reads my blog and it helps me to know there's at least one reader every day. hehe

I'm getting ready to read The Pilgrim's Progress. I picked it up a few years ago at a second hand book store and it's been calling my name this week...we'll see how it goes.

I'd be interested to hear what LC has to say. Her Kohl's stuff scared me a little - except the sunglasses...I wanted those BADLY and of course they were sold out!

xoxo,
Carrie

Emma said...

I go through stages where I read a lot and then don't read anything for a while. Currently reading a little pocket guys styling book that I picked up at a market sale.

Geeta said...

That is real nice of your husband and he sure has good taste. I am a little curious to see if you made any of those 100 mistakes from Kelly's book. I doubt though. Keep us posted either way.

Have a nice trip.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Definitely can't wait to read Lauren's book. I'm heading on over to UO this afternoon in fact. Hope they have it there :)

Happy Halloween! xo

Ashley [Free Honey] said...

I didn't know Clinton Kelly had written a book! I love him. He's so funny on What Not To Wear and I was at a talk he gave once and he was adorable in person.

xoxo, Ashley

Style Attic said...

Currently, no. BUT I do have quite the stylish stack awaiting me to turn 80 and have nothing but time and undivided attention to them :)

Krystal said...

I kind of want to read Lauren's book, she is so beautiful :)
I just started Vanity Fair!

style'n said...

@Ashley-I started reading the Clinton Kelly Book and it is hilarious! Definitely a must read.

Oh, My Darling said...

Ooh, I adore Molly Ringwald -- adding that to my reading list!

Penny said...

I received Lauren Conrad's book as a gift. I love it! There are great photos in it. I'm a bit surprised they were selling it at Urban Outfitters.
