Hollywood Dirt

Yesterday was the day Hollywood Dirt starting steaming on Passionflix.  I was excited to get home from work yesterday to watch it.  I really enjoyed it.  It’s a movie based on a book so of course the movie doesn’t hit on everything the book does but I actually thought it did a pretty good job following the book.  I know you can only do so much in a short time when a book is over 400 pages.  It was well worth the monthly fee for Passionflix.  I can’t wait to read some of the other books and see what they can do with them.

Passionflix and My Reading 

Passionflix is here!  I think it is going to make me step up my reading. I have already Hollywood Dirt to prepare me for when it starts streaming on the twentieth.  A few of these books I have heard of and thought about reading but now I will have to read them.  Next one for sure is Afterburn\Aftershock.  Then maybe Driven of This Man.  Stay tuned for updates. 

No Extra Spending Month Update 

I actually didn’t do too bad with this.  I ended up buying a few things but I was not getting boxes/packages everyday.  I think I am going to make September and October no buying books months.  I have so many unread books at home and on my kindle.  I think it’s time to give them some focus.  I’m really liking these mini challenges for myself.  I will keep you posted.  

What I’m Reading 

This week I’m reading “Hollywood Dirt” by Alessandra Torre.  This is going to be one of the first movies on that Passionflix so I thought I would see what it’s about.  I have not finished it yet but I’m enjoying it so far.  

A Few Random Thoughts

🌸 I have been keeping my reading at the PG level lately but I think I might need a steamy romance pretty soon.  Any suggestions?

🌸 My thoughts are with those people who have had their vacations effected by the huge power outage in the Outer Banks.  I know how excited I am for my vacation I’m two months and how disappointed I would be if I couldn’t go.

🌸 I recently tried ogx eucalyptus mint shampoo and conditioner and I really like it.  So if you are looking for something new you might want to give ogx a look.

🌸 Last night I was going to watch Country Crush on Netflix, I had no idea it was a musical.  

🌸 Have you seen the new Vera Bradley bedding?  I want it!

🌸 I really want a magnolia tree.  My grandma had one and it was her pride and joy in her yard.  I took it for granted but now I wish I didn’t.

🌸 We are starting to price a Disney trip for early next year and Port Orleans Riverside, where we always stay and I love so much, is more expensive than some of the other moderate resorts.  Any suggestions on other moderate resorts?

Beauty and the Beast Book 

Last week I read the Beauty and the Beast book that was released to coinside with the movie release earlier this year.  At first I thought do I really want to read this.  Since it was adapted from the movie and I already saw the movie I thought for sure it would be useless.  But I am glad I did.  I found it to be a nice companion to the movie.  I thought it helped pick up on some of the little things that might have been missed in the movie.  Especially since this movie is different than the cartoon everyone is used to.  I would recommend reading it if you haven’t seen the movie yet or even if you have.  It’a an easy fast read so it really wouldn’t take much time.  

Southern Belle Reads: Children’s Classics

I was never big on reading when I was growning up and my mom will not pick up a non-kids book for nothing.  So I feel like I was deprived a little growing up.  I have never read Little House on the Prairie, Mary Poppins, Anne of Green Gables,  Little Women, or Alice in Wonderland to name a few.  But I am working on changing that.  I am making it a goal to read some of the classics that I missed out on as a kid.  You are never to old to read something new even if it is not in you age group.
