The Hunger Games

I recently finished reading: The Hunger Games. I absolutely loved the book and greatly reccomend it. I can't wait to see how the movie relates to the book when it comes out this upcoming March. I don't want to spoil the book, but only share how much I really loved it.

I hope you can read it and enjoy it as much as I did. Thankfully, it's a series so there's more to come! Have a great weekend! XO Charlotte

Style Star: Olivia Wilde

I have recently been seeing some photos of celebrity Olivia Wilde, and I wanted to do a post on what a "Style Star" she is. I love the trends she takes, as well as the classic pieces she pulls off. Here are some of my favorites: 

Olivia Wilde in a Marchesa gown. I love the lace and the tiers on the bottom. 

Olivia Wilde in J. Mendel. I love the slit with the mix of cream and black. I love the pop of fuscia shoes. Her hair compliments it well, and her tan glows perfectly. 

Olivia Wilde in Monique Lhuiller. This classic black dress fits Olivia perfectly, while complimenting her shape. The last and cutout back adds dimension and adds something special to the dress. 

Overall, I really like Olivia's taste. She pulls everything off really well, and always look classic while adding her own flair to the outfit. Hope your weekend is fun! XO Charlotte

Raved Read: Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

TGIF! It's finally Friday-- yay!! I have a new (to me) read that I loved! The book is called The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I absolutely loved this book and read through it front to back within days. I have just started book #2, and hope to read all the following books in the series. 

 The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Frashares

I won't give any spoilers, but I bet most of you have either read the book or seen the movie. The movie is a bit different, but almost spot on. There are only minor details that have been changed in the movie, but they are both very good. 
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie 
The movie stars Amber Tamblyn as Tibby, Alexis Bledel as Lena, America Ferrera as Carmen, and Blake Lively as Bridget. They also star together in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 movie. I'm not sure if the story line of book #2 and movie #2 match up, but I'll let you know once I finish the book. 

Overall, I am loving the series!! I definitely think you should check it out if you like friendship, adventure, and romance (unless you already have!). XO Charlotte

Style Star: Lily Collins

I've been meaning to do a Style Star post on Lily Collins for a LONG time. When I noticed that she would be featured on the cover Seventeen Magazine for March, I knew I had to get right on it. I love how she acts, and she certainly has major style. Check it out: 

 She rocks the metallic look! Super sparkly dress, cinched at the waist, with simple accessories.

Lily Collins stars in a upcoming movie: Mirror Mirror. I can't wait to see it!

 Pick up the March issue of Seventeen to see Lily on the cover!

What do you think I Lily Collins? XO Charlotte
