~House Beautiful Living by Water by Lisa Cregan

In a compilation of beachside homes spotlighted in the shelter magazine House Beautiful, blue and white decor is revealed through a variety of different styles, approaches and aesthetics. Slim Paley‘s beautiful beach abode that was featured in the magazine in 2010 (click here to see the original photos) stars on the cover, and if her home is any indication, this decor book is one to pick up if you, like me, are a lover of ocean living.

~Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder by Arianna Huffington

Patiently waiting to read Arianna Huffington’s Thrive after hearing continued praise, I have yet to find time to enjoy her take on the importance of genuine success – not solely focusing on one’s bottom line, but also on the quality of life one is living. Inspired by her own experience and incorporating the latest research and science, she reminds readers of the power of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging, and giving. Speaking my kind of language, I look forward to reading.
