TV Tuesday: Wayward Pines

This post contains referral links. 

So, when I saw the previews for Wayward Pines, I was intrigued. I was not sure what I was getting myself into, but it looked . . . interesting. Interesting enough for me to watch the first time. And I watched the fist episode, and thought I "got" the show. I immediately thought it was going to be like "Person's Unknown" which I thought was ok. I was SO wrong and completely off based.

Turns out it was about something completely different which made the show a million times more incredible. There were several weeks that I changed my mind, thought I knew what was happening, and BAM, new twist! It has been a fantastic ride, watching the show this summer and I cannot wait to see what happens next!!! It is worth checking out! For those without cable or local channels (like me), Wayward Pines is on Hulu Plus. Don't have Hulu Plus? Sign up now for 2 free weeks:

Look of the Week: BB Dakota Boromir Sweater

This post contains referral links. 

This is a throw back again this week (I have to find more time in the morning to snap newer photos). It is one of my items that I LOVED from Gwynnie Bee, but found I needed a size smaller. The BB Dakota Boromir Sweater I would say runs about 1 size large, so size down if you are on GB.

One of the questions that we are often asked is if there is any control over getting sweaters in the summer. YES!! If you are not a GB member, this is what your dashboard looks like. These are my items on their way to me.

I am not sure how I ended up with a longer sleeved dress in there, but I guess I forgot to hold that one. Towards the top, you will see different areas, and one of those areas is the hold area.

You can see that in my hold area are dresses with longer sleeves, sweaters, etc. Basically, anything I would not wear in the summer. When it is summer time, I put the "warmer" clothes in the hold place in my closet. It is super simple to do. Just click on "Options" under the item in your closet, and choose to move it to "Hold." When it starts to get cooler again, I just go through my "On-hold" area and move those items back to my closet. You can do this many, many times (I am constantly moving things around).

Have an item that you want to return but potentially have again? I do this ALL the time. You just go to your history area, click on the item, and re-add it to your closet.

What do I pay? Recently, Gwynnie Bee gave me a 1 item at a time upgrade for 3 months (so that was a free upgrade). They also sent an offer that if you purchased an upgrade, you would get one additional upgrade for life for FREE. So right now, I am getting 4 items at a time for $63.43 a month (I pay the base of about $35 plus the upgrade of about $28). You can sign up with Gwynnie Bee at:

Read it Wednesday: The Fault in Our Stars

This post contains affiliate links. 

Ok, this is an older book-- but if you have not read it yet--- well, you simply must. When you buy The Fault in Our Stars, buy Kleenex with the book. Seriously, you will need them. Lots and lots of Kleenex. When I read this, I was a complete puddle of tears. It was cathartic and healing.

To be honest, I was not expecting much from The Fault in Our Stars. As someone who has lost a close family member to cancer, I have received a TON of well meaning "cancer" books along the way.
But this was not a book about cancer. It is a book about love. About taking the risk to love. About knowing that there will be pain from that love, but still falling with every ounce of your being.
I read this book in one afternoon, but I have no doubt it will stay with me forever.

To those wondering, I have not seen the movie-- still. I want to set aside a time I can be a great big puddle of tears again.
