The Sunday Six: June 29th, 2008

I thought I'd have more time to blog during the summer -- but I've run out of time (and energy) between work, exploring the city, summer homework, college applications, and pleasure reading.

  1. Rest in peace, Miss Ruslana Korshunova.
  2. Starting college in the fall? I discovered a fabulously complete Master List for College. Don't leave home without reading it (and good luck, my lovely '08ers!)!
  3. If you're not interested in romance novels or overtly materialistic chick lit for casual afternoon readings (I know I'm not), reading a play may be your cup of tea. My wonderful American literature teacher recommended M. Butterfly by David Henry Hwang to me -- a fascinating play about a French diplomat who falls in love with a male Peking opera singer who is pretending to be a female to obtain secret information about Indochina from France on behalf of the Communists. Confused yet? Best part is that it's based on a true story! As my teacher says, "In a way, that points to the greatness of the form - plays can evoke an entire world in the mind of a sensitive, imaginative reader, yet they can be read in a surprisingly short amount of time."
  4. Is anyone else also obsessed with the Valentino Nuage Bag? Patent leather and a girly bow?

  5. Shannon Click and Natasha Poly -- I love cute models who make shoutouts to their parents like us mortals do in front of the Good Morning America show at Bryant Park.
  6. Oh my goodness -- I love Gala's coverage of the Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection! I don't know how Marc Jacobs made Barbie-style hot pink stilettos not tacky -- but there they are, in their shining glory.
I hope June is ending gloriously for you, my lovelies.
