The ABCs with Estelle from Rather Be Reading

Posted July 9, 2014 by Andi in Guest Post, The ABCs / 11 Comments


Welcome to The ABCs.  In the past I have used this weekly Wednesday post as a link up but times are a changing. I’m switching things up here and Estelle at Rather Be Reading is the first to come to bat! From now on I am throwing the ABCs out to you, if you are interested that is. After seeing what accessory, book and clothing item Estelle is lusting after this week you’ll see just how times are a changing.

Now let’s give a warm ABCers welcome to the fabulous Estelle!


Big thanks to Andi for having me for this week’s The ABCs. I‘ve always loved this feature because it includes two of my favorites: pretty things and books. And there is no one who understands both these obsessions like Andi. (I’ll ignore the fact that she is a Red Sox fan and I’m a Yankees fan but hey, it’s proof we can get along and still support our teams!)

Let’s jump right in, shall we?


Sorrelli Bold Bauble Ring
Coincidentally, I first stumbled on Sorrelli’s gorgeous website because of a cross promotion they did with The Ring and the Crown by Melissa de la Cruz. I love costume jewelry and while the prices brand these as more of a “special occasion” splurge, I have stars in my eyes staring at everything. The plus side of their rings is that all of them are adjustable. How convenient is that?

 Friendship by Emily Gould
The cover of this book caught my eye a few weeks ago at B&N and I haven’t been able to put it out of my mind. It’s a “big kid book” but it’s about two girls who have a very lengthy friendship and all I want to read lately are books about female friendships. I think I might have to treat myself to this one. (As if I don’t have enough books already.)

 Saturday Safari Dress
I know, I know … not exactly a work day dress but I love the plunging neckline and the giraffe print! In fact, I am thinking I need this for a fall trip to Walt Disney World, right? I’m just not sure how it would survive the rickety ride in a safari jeep and the unpredictable November weather but it’s worth a try, don’t you think?

 Yay! That was so much fun! Hope you enjoyed my picks for The ABCs!

    No surprise I love everything E picked out!! I need that book!! And that DRESS omg. I don’t really wear rings besides my wedding ring but I LOVE THAT.

  2. Super cute! I love costume jewelry, too. Especially statement rings. I bought a cute purple stoned ring with a gold band recently, but it was so super cheap that the gold now looks a bit coppery 🙁 May need to spend a bit more next time lol.

  3. First of all…I am soooo excited about this guest post idea! What a great for us all to share in our love of ABCs! Estelle – you did an amazing job with your picks. That ring is exquisite, the book sounds perfect and that dress is ridiculously cute!

  5. […] The ABCs – In 2014 I made a conscious effort to change up the style of my weekly ABC posts. Instead of doing them all on my own I took inspiration from Brittany of The Book Addict’s Guide and her weekly Book and Beverage posts and opened it up to you all. Since switching it in July of 2014 I have 53 people sign up and hope to keep it going. I love seeing every week what my new guest poster has selected. And I love that readers, blogger, publicists and authors have all taken part in the fun. […]
