Mall Fashion

Pop Rocks and I were at the mall to see a movie over the weekend. We got a snack at the food court and I had mine well before PR had his. I had some time to people watch and realized that I am so not into the fashion that I saw. Here are some of the highlights:

  • There was lots and lots of neon. Mostly on middle school girls. It would only really be cute on them it seems.
  • Shorts for girls are really short. (And unfortunately many women too!) Walking behind girls in these shorts is very irritating. There was one mom and daughter who met up in the food court to review what the daughter had purchased. There were three pairs of shorts in the bag. All ridiculously short. Also, one was neon yellow. NEON YELLOW SHORT SHORTS! As I watched the mom got more and more upset looking at these shorts. I saw her mouth the price to her daughter followed by a very upset phrase. When we passed the store, the shorts were on sale for $35! There wasn't even $5 worth of fabric on them!
  • There was one lady wearing all white from her draping sweater over white tank with a white bohemian skirt and white espadrilles. I am serious. It was so bad.
  • There was lots of hair dyed crazy colors. Mostly it was just the tips or a stripe. I like this look and wish I could pull it off without looking like I was trying to hard. Also, there was a Journey's concert thing going on so it could've had to do with all the skater kids at the mall.
  • There were tattoos every where. PR and I noticed this when we were in Jamaica as well, but it seems that I see tattoos on more that 50% of grown people anymore. Even people who don't fit the typical has a tattoo stereotype.
  • I saw a pair of high waisted leopard print pants. I hope I never see such a sight again. It was awful.
  • The funniest to me was a classy looking older lady. She was wearing a nice white shirt with a good looking khaki skirt. But then, she had on a pair of PURPLE Tom's' shoes. It just didn't fit. 

All in all it made me thankful that I don't care that much about fashion. To each their own. As long as it isn't offensive (I would argue that short shorts are) I'm fine with it. It is just interesting to sit back and observe.

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.

Mary Poser by Angel A.

I just finished the book Mary Poser: Butterflies and White Lies as Bollywood Comes to Nashville. In this book, dutiful pastor's daughter Mary meets Bollywood producer, Simha Das at the Nashville Film Festival and the many different events that follow send Mary on a roller coaster of emotions. When her ex finds out about Simha he appears back in Mary's life wanting to make amends. Her critical mother has to have opinions about everything in her family's life. Her brother, sister and father are all restless with their lives that have been lived in the same city. Her best friend from childhood is devious and manipulative. Plus, there are lots of other characters with their own set of problems.

What will the result be? Will Mary completely change or will she stay in the life that she has always known? 

I would tell you to read it to find out, but don't, seriously don't. 

This was by far the worst book I have read in a while. The events in Mary's life are described in …
