Coffee Table Collection // New York Times - 36 Hours, 150 Weekends In The USA & Canada

27 August 2013

USA Coffee Table travel guide book

Slowly but surely I'm growing my coffee table book collection. Living in Korea makes it a bit tricky though since I have to acquire most of them through the internet. Well, if I want to be able to do more than look at the pretty pictures that is. It's always a little gamble ordering a new one, for the most part I quite literally have to judge a book by it's cover. Anyway, that's why I like to share the good ones I get, so that you guys can have a chance to look before you buy.

This last one The New York Times', 36 Hours, 150 Weekends In The USA & Canada, is a great buy. I'm so glad I got it and I highly recommend it. Of course, with my fiance and I having a little dream to road trip America one day, it's got a certain 'usefulness' to it. But, even if you're not planning a mega adventure, it's full of tidbits of information, maps and some interesting pictures. And at the very least it looks quite cool on the coffee table and gives a bit more credibility to your story that you're really not just obsessed with superficial things! Even if the sky high stack of Chanel, Domino, Kate Spade, YSL, 'style-this fashion that type' coffee table books might be saying otherwise. Yes, you like to travel too. You're cultured. You're worldly. You totally do not spend all your money frivolously on that latest must-have handbag.

  5. The illustrations in this are amazing!

    One of those you can pick up and just look at pictures, or get down and dirty into the text, I think I'll definitely have to look this up!

    Hmm maybe...

  9. Thank you SO much for the parcel lady - I am IN LOVE with that BB cream! Everything looks lovely. I really appreciate it. Quick question about the nail polish - is the sort of milky looking one a base coat? Thanks again

    1. Yes, it's the peel off base coat, good under glitter! Apply it quite thick and wait until it goes clear (still feels a tad tacky) then paint your polish as usual over the top.

      I love the Mishha BB cream, use it whenever I want something lighter than my usual foundation. Really wasnt sure about which shade for you though. I do find you can adapt them to be a bit darker or lighter with a bit of bronzer or powder, so hopefully I guess right and you can make good use out of it! :)
