The Re:Mark: Read All About It
I rarely stop talking about vacays, travel and how much I crave the jet-set life. And there's one thing I always think about when planning my next escape: my reading list. Think of a book as your travel pal, beach bud and sunset soulmate - it’s got your back all day long.
I know the e-reader's been a thing for a while. But I’m an old school kinda girl: I like to hold an actual book when chillin' on a beach. Some people like to keep a book looking brand-new, like a shelf art. I’m the total opposite. There's nothing I Iove more than having a new novel in my life--and not letting go until it's well-worn, sun-bleached and covered in the creases is takes years to create. I think if you're obsessed with your new read, it should look loveworn by the time you finish it, right?
As the summer sun starts fading in London, I’m dreaming about vacays past, present and future. It’s def time to book an end-of-summer getaway when you can't stop daydreaming... I still haven't gone away this summer--but I have big plans for the fall. I like to escape when it gets a little chilly; I can make the summer vibes last a little longer with a great tan and vacay Instas!

First thing on your post-vacay shop list? Fresh jeans – you can never have too many, right? Sometimes I think my denim's going to take over, I have so many jeans crammed into my closet! But right now I'm all about the cutoffs, 'cause summer's still here and hot. Now where did I leave my book..?
