I think that this is going to be a really popular read! This week I’m giving away three copies of Being Audrey Hepburn. (Who doesn’t just love Audrey?!)
From the Being Audrey Hepburn Website:Lisbeth is a nineteen-year old girl from the wrong side of the tracks who gets through her crummy life by obsessively watching Audrey Hepburn movies. Fascinated with everything Audrey, she is transformed when she secretly tries on Audrey’s Givenchy and falls into a world of intrigue. Soon she’s thrust into a world of A-listers, paparazzi, fame, love and betrayal. A novel in the tradition of the Nanny Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada, it’s a coming of age story that begins with that little black dress.
Mitchell Kriegman, the author, is the writer of Clarissa Explains It All. Remember that show?! I really love this quote from him: “One major focus in my work, including Clarissa Explains It All and this novel, Being Audrey Hepburn, is the Pygmalion Effect. The Pygmalion Effect is simply the creative transformation of self. It’s about deciding who you want to be and overcoming the naysayers.” Yep. I can get behind that!
Being Audrey Hepburn has been officially added to my “to-read” list.

Taken on a much sunnier day ☀️🕶️ I used to think I could live somewhere gloomy and rainy, but… after this bout of clouds, downpours, and overall gloom, I’m realizing I wouldn’t last a week. #tuckernucking
I was so excited that @MyMyrtleBeach invited me to come play pickleball with them! I am obsessed with pickleball and had a blast playing at City Pickle, right here in NYC. We brushed up on the rules, practiced some dinking, and got to play a few rounds of the game– it was the perfect way to spend the day because everyone plays at the beach! #ad
I loved watching The Parent Trap growing up and still do to this day. It is one of my go-to comfort movies… There’s so much I love about it: the cast, the soundtrack, and (of course!) the wardrobe. We all have a little Annie James and a little Hallie Parker in us! I’ve always been drawn to Annie’s style, but love the carefree nature of Hallie’s. #parenttrap @nmeyers #tuckernucking

Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
