Handbag Monday--er, Wednesday--
Some women consider themselves obsessed with shoes or clothes, but not me. I’ve always been a handbag girl. No matter what my size or style, a handbag always made me feel good about myself.
My current favorite handbag is this gorgeous black leather purse that has spikes and rhinestones details on its sides and a gold chain handle. It’s bold, very girly and perfect for a night out on the town.
Wow, Madison, I never thought of you as a "spikey" kind of girl.
Turkish Delight by Madison West
An agoraphobic young woman embarks on a trip to Istanbul, Turkey
in search of a rare tapestry, but instead finds love and herself.
“As much as Amelia was an introvert and liked being around the familiar, she sometimes found herself longing to trade places with Penny—to become as adventurous as she was, to live life as fearlessly as her.
“You have to make a wish now!” Penny declared, placing a candle on the pink, sparkly cupcake and lighting it.
The gesture made Amelia temporarily cringe.
Penny held out the cupcake closer to Amelia, ignoring her lack of enthusiasm. “Come on, you have to close your eyes too or it won’t come true!”
It was a silly notion, but Amelia quickly closed her eyes and wished things would be different from now on.
She wished she could trade places with the bold and adventurous Penny Landry.”
