Gilt Group!!

SO I have 7 hour contracts (K for all you lawyerettes) final tomorrow and I should be studying like my life depends on it, but instead I am shopping!!! Why?!?! Don't ask because I don't know! It is just tons more fun than contracts!!! Anywho, if you haven't already, you should check out Gilt Group! It is a site full of designer stuff for major discounts! Right now they have a sale on Ralph Lauren Kids items. Sometimes their style is a lil edgy but otherwise they have tons of cute stuff!

Did I mention that you have to be put on a waitlist unless you get referred by a friend... I have the GOLDEN ticket! lol... Just click on my referral link, sign up for an account and go to town!!!

Ok, back to viewing blogs... and studying of course!

FINALS!!!! and a great GIVEAWAY!!

So needless to say law school is kicking my cute lil butt right now because of finals! I have 5 finals and the first one is on Saturday. I don't know what genius decided that it was okay for this pearl girl to have to sit in a final ALL Saturday morning! Not cute and definitely not preppy. Unnacceptable.

Anywho, while I am studying like a mad woman, enjoy a few giveaways for me! Especially, the Surprise Lilly giveaway by .MRM It ends tonight at midnight.... SO GET OVER THERE!!!

LaLaLa... Lovely Reading!

Good morning friends!!!

I have taken a personal vow to blog more often! Why, you ask? 1) It is fabulous! 2) I love reading your blogs and having you read mine! 3) It just might keep me sane in a world of Res Ipsa, Mens Rea and other latin legal jargon!!!

So in keeping sane, I have ambitiously compiled a list of books that I hope to read during the summer (amidst briefs and research while I clerk for a federal judge), I am so very excited!! So check out my list below and feel free to make suggestions!

*The careful use of compliments by Alexander McCall Smith

*The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith

*The Devil in the Junior League by Linda Francis Lee

*Ex-Debutant by Linda Francis Lee

*Mating Rituals of the North American WASP by Lauren Lipton

*Our kind of people: inside America's Black upper class by Lawrence Otis Graham.
