The 30-Day Live Like Audrey Challenge: Day 1!

Hello, dahlings - and welcome back to the Chick Lit Kitchen after another (semi-long) hiatus!
I would first like to apologize for constantly delaying and delaying the start of this series - you'd be surprised at the amount of work a 30 Day Challenge entails and at the number of challenges life throws at you along the way! So, unfortunately, the challenge is beginning a little late; sorry to those of you who might be disappointed in me. I hope you'll all forgive me in true Audrey fashion as we embark together on our very first 30 Day Challenge together! 
Consider today's challenge as a warm-up for the days and days of Audrey style, lifestyle, and love that are yet to come. Today, all I'm asking you to do is spend 10-15 minutes journaling your goals. Some topics you might want to think about include: 
Why are you starting this 30 Day Challenge? What do you want to gain or learn along the way?What is it about Audrey Hepburn, or another icon you'd like to emulate, that mo…

Spring Style Concept + a Special Announcement!

Hello, darlings - and welcome back from my brief hiatus! It's occurred to me we haven't seen each other since last Saturday's quiz (comment below if you enjoyed it + want more quizzes here at the Chick Lit Kitchen!), so I thought I'd pop in and make a brief post before the weekend rolls around.

Today I'm going to share with you my most recent style cravings, a little concept I'm calling Garden Party Goddess: it's equal parts Daisy Buchanan (we've just finished reading the Great Gatsby - post-worthy or no? Comment and let me know!), Audrey Hepburn, and 1950s housewife, a la Bryce Dallas Howard in the Help...oh, and speaking of which, check out these epic costume sketches!

But, let's get back to Audrey for a moment...the moment you've all been waiting for, in fact! A few of my more loyal readers may remember the Thirty Day Challenge I've been promising for weeks now, and tonight is the night! Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to announce the ar…

Holden & I, Part III: Holden & Salinger

Greetings, lit geeks - and welcome to...wait for it.... ... ...
THE LAST EVER INSTALLMENT OF THE HOLDEN & I SERIES!!!!
I don't know who's more excited: you or me! And as much as I want to get straight into today's topic - a miniature biography of Salinger and a mild psychoanalysis of his affinity for women half his age (yep, you read that right!), all in the context of Catcher -  I promised over Twitter yesterday that a full explanation would be provided. So, without further ado...

THAT is what I did yesterday! For a girl who's deathly afraid of heights, that's pretty impressive, isn't it? It's a high-adventure course inside the Jordan's Furniture in Reading, and it was completely and utterly awesome, for lack of a more Salingerian word. At first, I've gotta admit: I was being a total pole-hugger and I was scared to walk on anything that didn't have hand ropes. Once I got used to being 12 feet up in the air, though, …
