Required Reading: “The Paris Wife”

Posted by The E on December 4, 2012

The Paris Wife

Everyone loves a love story, and a perfect book to cuddle up with a cup of coffee (or hot cocoa) to this winter is Paula McLain’s “The Paris Wife.” Based on Ernest Hemingway’s real life partner Hadley Richardson, “The Paris Wife” gives readers an inside look into a timeless, but tragic, love story, while also rubbing shoulders with the literally elite (including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein and James Joyce).

With dazzling details of the young couple’s travels throughout Europe, impeccable biographical research, and the beautiful Hallmark portrait McLain paints of Paris in the 1920s, it’s virtually impossible to not get sucked in for hours. It’s no surprise that “The Paris Wife” is climbing the New York Times bestseller list.

Hemingway’s love and ultimate loss of loyalty to Hadley becomes even more heartbreaking as Hemingway had stated that he would have rather died than fallen in love with anyone else.

“The Paris Wife” will make the perfect gift this holiday season. Head on over to Amazon to pick up this required reading.

This Christmas: John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John

Posted by The E on December 3, 2012


It’s finally December and that means we can officially start listening to Christmas music. There are so many classic Christmas albums we listen to, but this year we are going to blast the newest Christmas album, “This Christmas,” by the one and only “Grease” stars, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Not only do we love this album because we are big Grease fans and it includes the sequel to “You’re the One That I Want,” but it also has appearances by some of our other favorite singers like Barbra Streisand, Toby Bennett, James Taylor and Kenny G. And since it’s the season for giving, when you purchase the album, proceeds go to the two stars’ charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation for children’s disabilities and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia. We are going to slip on our Addison Skinny jeans in Nightwatch while listening to this new album and channel our inner Sandra Dee!

Preview the album on!
