Get Lost In Austen


Lost In Austen is finally coming to the U.S. Yay!

This television miniseries starring Jemima Rooper aired in the UK last year and I’ve been pining over it ever since.

I managed to watch bits and pieces of it on youtube but now I can finally see the whole thing.

Product Description
Amanda Price is sick of the modern world. She yearns for the romance and elegance found in the books by her favorite author, Jane Austen. But she’s about to get a rude awakening as one fateful evening, she is propelled into the scheming 19th century world of Pride and Prejudice while that book’s Elizabeth Bennet is hurled into hers. As the book’s familiar plot unfolds, Amanda triggers new romantic twists and turns within the Bennet family circle as she clumsily tries to help the sisters nab husbands and even captivates the tantalizing Mr. Darcy herself. But what about Elizabeth…and what will become of one of the world’s greatest love stories?

Shopping Amazon UK


I confess. I’m an Amazonaholic. My wish list is 15 pages long.

You can buy almost anything on Amazon. And if you can’t find it on the U.S. version of the megastore, try Amazon UK.

Here are some books I bought in British pounds. Remember to check a currency converter before you finalize a sale.

The Goddess Guide
The Goddess Guide
By Gisele Scanlon, £9.00
This beautiful book with its velvet cover makes a great gift for any woman interested in fashion.

The Survival Guide
Trinny & Susannah: The Survival Guide – A Woman’s Secret Weapon for Getting Through the Year
By Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine, £12.58
I love every book Trinny and Susannah have published. This one has some UK-specific references but is universal enough for American women, too.

How to Walk in High Heels
How to Walk in High Heels: The Girl’s Guide to Everything
By Camilla Morton, £4.79
Literally a guide to everything from how to practice walking in high heels to how to drive a stick shift. Witty and indispensible.
