And do you have a favorite girl? Mine's always been Marnie and, like Serena points out on the podcast, it's probably because she dresses the nicest...or, rather, she looks the most high end, which is what I like most in fashion. Hey, I'm not shy about admitting that!
So, check out the episode here and let me know what you think!

I'm super late with this month's magazine covers, but I've been on vacation and sans wifi for much of it.
|15. The best thing about this cover is that Sofia Vergara is wearing something a little different than she usually does. I get soooo bored of the same silhouettes she wears. Her hair does look great, though.|
|13. Nothing about this covers makes me think of October and I don't like that. Sure, we're already thinking about Spring fashion in these magazines, but I'd still like an autumn color palate!|
|12. A literal cover. The best of beauty so a close up of a beautiful woman. Julia Roberts has amazing hair! I cover it often.|
|11. Is it daring because half of her face is covered? Because she has a pixie cut? Because it's Lena Dunham? I don't really know (or care), but I love the colors on this one. She has great eyes and this shot gives them a chance to really stand out. Also, I'm a sucker for a sweater.|
|10. Orange for October! Yay!|
|9. For a shot with no neck, this works quite well. Her arms look great, her expression looks great, and the red really makes it pop!|
|8. Mary Kate Olsen looks great here! Wait, it's Claire Danes? Really? Oh! W, always doing something different...and different looks good.|
|7. So, first of all, Serena and I have a new podcast and in our premiere episode we talk all about the fashion in Empire! Check it out here. So, I like this cover because of the orange plus pink, but also because Taraji P. Henson looks awesome and that belt feature on the dress is great.|
|6. Sorry, but I'm a sucker for sequins.|
|4. To me, Amy Schumer is saying "What?" in this photo. Like, "Yeah, I'm awesome...what?" She is great and I love that she is getting these awesome covers and knocking them out of the park.|

Of course, after I raise my 2015 reading goal, I only manage to finish five books in September. *sigh*
|5. THE TREATMENT by Suzanne Young. This month's books are more of a #1 and then a bunch of #2s. I love this series and felt that THE PROGRAM was one of the best YA books I've read. I love the relationship the main characters have and, even though sometimes the world they live in is hard to imagine, the plot is interesting.|
|4. SAVE HAVEN by Nicholas Sparks (Audio). I love the movie based on this book and LOVE Southport where the story takes place. I don't know why Nicholas Sparks gets such a bad rap- This was totally enjoyable.|
|3. WE'LL NEVER BE APART by Emiko Jean (ARC). Love this cover! The story brings a lot of tension to the surface as the story unfolds and even though I knew something was up with someone in the story, I didn't guess the plot twist.|
|2. HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS by JK Rowling (Audio). I think I've said it before, but I really get into this series at the end of this book when things get pretty dark. The part at the end with the sorting hat and sword gave me chills!|
|1. WOLF BY WOLF by Ryan Graudin (ARC). The premise of this book is so original and cool and I loved it! There isn't a weak character in the entire book and it read like the race at the center of the story: I couldn't stop. I hope you all read this so we can discuss it and gush over it.|
