Peacock Finds: Fall And Winter 2013 Book Reads- Biographies

Alyssa Manners Fall Winter Reading List

I’m sure by now you’ve read or at least glimpsed at my About Me section, so you have an idea of who I am and my background. I have a joint degree in English and Journalism, so clearly my love for writing knows no limits. But I am also very passionate about reading. Sometimes (often times), television shows are simply not enough. Not enough substance, not enough depth, not enriching whatsoever. And where reruns of Sex And The City or Mad Men fail me (it’s rare), a book will forever find success.  Continue reading “Peacock Finds: Fall And Winter 2013 Book Reads- Biographies”

Fade To Black…

Alyssa Peacock: “Another for the folks”

Burrrr!!! Fall has arrived folks!!! I love all things that accompany Fall. Though I am not a fan of the transition from warmer weather to this Northeast chill, the changing of the leaves, apple cider, & Fashion Week make it worthwhile. It was 80 degrees one week then 50s the following.

My favorite part of Fall? I have an excuse to bust out my favorite wardrobe pieces. Fur, leather, & knits are my style poisons of choice. I am also afforded the opportunity to wear all black everything without the unintended “WTF” face from passersby. Fact: I am known to wear an entire black outfit in the middle of August. Judge me not!!!

Be Inspired: Gucci Fall/Winter 2012-2013

I am currently putting the final touches on my fall and winter staples. For me, it’s all about buy quality versus quantity. So I will splurge on a few pieces and rework them to keep my outfits fresh, new, and current. I’m not particularly the “follow the trend” sort, but if I happen to like an item that just so happens to be on-trend, I … Continue reading Be Inspired: Gucci Fall/Winter 2012-2013
