Christmas Shopaholic | Sophie Kinsella

Stupid real life. Why isn‘t it like a Christmas movie?
***********
If I‘d known I‘d be stuck in a shop over Christmas, I‘d at least have chosen one with clothes.

it suddenly hits me: I‘m scared. Deep down, I‘m scared I‘m going to screw up even more. Some people lose their nerve for riding or skiing or driving; well, I‘ve lost my nerve for life.

Can You Keep A Secret? | Sophie Kinsella
post image
Pickpick

He was a stranger. He was supposed to be a stranger. As I travel home that evening, I‘m still reeling with the injustice of it all. The whole point about strangers is, they disappear into the ether and you never see them again. They don‘t turn up at the office. They don‘t ask you what eight nines are. They don‘t turn out to be your mega-boss employer. Well, all I can say is, that‘s taught me.

This is a difficult balance, telling the truth: how much to share, how much to keep, which truths will wound but not ruin, which will cut too deep to heal.

Shopaholic Takes Manhattan | Sophie Kinsella

It‘s a whole new beginning. It‘s yellow taxicabs and skyscrapers, and Woody Allen and Breakfast at Tiffany‘s. The weird thing is that although I‘ve never actually been to New York, I already feel an affinity toward it.

The Undomestic Goddess | Sophie Kinsella

If I‘ve learned one lesson from all that‘s happened to me, it‘s that there is no such thing as the biggest mistake of your existence. There‘s no such thing as ruining your life. Life‘s a pretty resilient thing, it turns out.

Good-byes are like this. You can‘t always mark them well at the moment of separation no matter how deep they cut.

Five seconds after I‘ve crossed the threshold of Tiffany‘s, I‘m already calmer. My heart rate begins to subside. My mind begins to turn less frantically. I feel soothed, just looking around at the cases full of glittering jewellery. Audrey Hepburn was right: nothing bad could ever happen in Tiffany‘s.

I have found that this is the easiest way to carry the poems; wrap them around my wrists, place them against my heart. Of course, I don‘t keep all of the pages with me. I‘ve found a place to hide most of them. But there are a few pieces I don‘t ever like to be without.

Shopaholic and Sister | Sophie Kinsella

I was made for Milan.
No. Not Milan, Milano.
And as soon as I looked round the hotel foyer at all those chic women in Prada and D&G, kissing each other whilst simultaneously downing espressos, lighting cigarettes and flinging their shiny hair about, I just kind of knew, with a kind of natural instinct: this is my kind of city.

Maybe I should just forget this whole hospital thing and have the baby in a shop like I always planned. At least I‘d feel relaxed and happy. At least I‘d get free clothes.

This is exactly what I imagined Hollywood would be like. Lots of people in amazing dresses, and Meryl Streep, and a band playing smooth jazz, and delicious citrussy cocktails.

It‘s a weird place, LA. I can‘t quite get a grip on it. It‘s not like European cities, where you get to the centre and think, Ah yes, here I am in Milan/Amsterdam/Rome. In LA you drive around endless great big roads and you peer out of the windows and think, ‘Are we there yet?‘

This isn‘t what thirty is supposed to look like. It‘s not what thirty is supposed to feel like. By thirty, you‘re supposed to have things figured out, aren‘t you? You‘re not supposed to be questioning everything you‘ve built your life on.

“Maybe all of this time,” I say to Ethan, “I‘ve been looking for home and not realizing that home is where the cinnamon roll is.”
Ethan laughs. “I mean, if you‘re going to go all over the country looking for where you belong, I could have told you years ago you belong in front of a cinnamon roll.”

Forever, Interrupted: A Novel | Taylor Jenkins Reid
post image
Pickpick

No matter how strong you are, no matter how smart you are or tough you can be, the world will find a way to break you. And when it does, the only thing you can do is hold on.

###################################

That is what true love is. True love is saying to someone “Forget about us. We will be okay,” when it might not even be true, when the last thing you want is to be forgotten.

No one is just a victim or a victor. Everyone is somewhere in between. People who go around casting themselves as one or the other are not only kidding themselves, but they‘re also painfully unoriginal.

Our family histories are simply stories. They are myths we create about the people who came before us, in order to make sense of ourselves.

I wouldn‘t have come up with something like that. Which is what we all want from art, isn‘t it? When someone pins down something that feels like it lives inside us? Takes a piece of your heart out and shows it to you? It‘s like they are introducing you to a part of yourself.

Pillow Thoughts | Courtney Peppernell

So I‘ll stand here for you
In the wind and the rain
And I‘ll be the lighthouse you need.
Take my hand and breathe again
And I will guide you home.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sometimes I am a rainstorm
Sometimes I am a drought
There is no in between
And I‘m begging you to notice
I‘m begging you to care
Because if I have to keep on hiding
Then life becomes unfair

"Love, she said, was not always perfect, and not exactly how you expected it to be. But when it descended upon you, there was no controlling it."

Chars This is the perfect thing to say when someone‘s having a tough time in a relationship. Often there are no words- this passage gave some. Loved it! 3y
