New & Improved.

edward and bella

Baggy Bella, enchanting Edward and the Pacific NW star in Twilight.

Confession: I am newly obsessed with Twilight. There. I said it! Clearly this is my guiltiest pleasure, as I shouldn’t be so into teenage vampire sagas… right? The hopeless romantic within me is an equal opportunist; thus, Edward and Bella are no exception despite their teen scream status. Today I even spotted the Twilight book at the grocery check-out and couldn’t resist the last minute temptation (especially now that I know how many of my peers have read the books way before me). Granted I’m only on chapter one, but I already have a better understanding of why Bella insists upon dressing like a dumpy lumberjack despite the presence of her über-hunky love interest. See, Bella and I have a little thing in common called the Pacific Northwest. It is currently raining painfully dark bullets outside both of our windows, but I have high hopes that Bella will step up her style game in New Moon. Even on a limited budget a girl should never have to brave the storm in an oversized parka and dowdy boots!
