Summer Envy

Finders Keepers the Label featured in Planet Blue
Although most of the world is in the throes of summer, here in the Southern Hemi, I'm almost drowning & freezing to death simultaneously! (exaggerate much?)

So you know I'm not that much of a Drama Queen, this is the view from my deck. Brrrrrr...

To brighten my day (and my bad 'tude), I've gathered this collection of beautiful summer photos in an effort to stave off my intense Summer Envy. 
Hope you love 'em.
Vogue Nederlands Bathing Beauties.

And check out these amazing vintage summer shots from Vogue...

The Devil Wears Prada...Again!

According to a report in InStyle Magazine:

Almost one decade since The Devil Wears Prada became a best-selling novel (and intimidated girls from working in magazines!), author Lauren Weisberger is writing a sequel, bringing back all your favourite characters… 

The Devil Wears Prada sequel will be called Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, fast-forwarding eight years after Andrea "Andy" Sachs left her demanding boss, Miranda Priestly, at Runway magazine. Andy is now editing a hot bridal magazine The Plunge alongside Emily (the once one-cube-of-cheese-a-day eating Runway colleague) but remains haunted by her ex-boss… okay, we're already hooked!

The book is set for release in April 2013, and while there's no word of whether a film adaptation will occur, we are wishing and hoping that Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep will step back into those well heeled shoes on the big screen!
