- Halle Berry invested in the French lingerie brande, Scandale, and now its launching in select Targets on Monday, October 27th. (Huffington Post)
- I want a little fur this fall. Faux fur preferably like this ONE by Private Archives faux fur top, and if I could have one wish, it would be for this shearling Elizabeth and James bag.
- I really want a pair of loafers, and I'm totally crushing on these Steve Madden and Sol Sana loafers.
- P.S. I really need to get my ring game up. I think I see a splurge at Forever 21 in the near future.
- Have I told you how desperately I would love a cape? P.S.S. This H&M Cape is a must have, and its under $30.
- Random: My friends and I go back forth on whether or not Beyonce's baby bangs are cute. There is no in between with us. Either you love them or you hate them. In our case, most of us are not a fan. Who knew bangs could spark debates on high fashion, regular folks, trendsetting, and what's cute or not?
- ASOS has some cute things for Halloween. Are you dressing up this year?

He seethes with raw power the first time I see him—pure tattooed menace and rippling muscles in shackles. He’s dangerous. He’s wild. He’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
So I hide behind my prim glasses and my book like I always do, because I have secrets, too. Then he shows up in the prison writing class I volunteered to teach and he blows me away with his honesty. He tells me secrets in his stories, and it’s getting harder to hide mine. I shiver when he gets too close, with only the cuffs and the bars and the guards holding him back. At night, I can’t stop thinking about him in his cell.
But that’s the thing about an animal in a cage—you never know when he’ll bite. He might use you to escape. He might even pull you into a forest and hold a hand over your mouth, so you can’t call for the cops. He might make you come so hard, you can’t think.
And you might crave him more than your next breath.
You can purchase this book at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Oh, and don't forget to add it on Goodreads!
