2. What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast by Laura Vanderkam

While the reviews were mixed and perhaps you, like me, have yet to see Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby, you can now take in all the glamour, drama and dazzle and make up your own mind about the film as the DVD is released today.
4. Cord Tacos
Nothing is more irritating than having to unwind knotted cords for your iPod or iPhone. This simple leather cord holder (or taco) is the tool to help.

While you may not purchase them now, you will want to save and keep an eye on them as they will undoubtedly go on sale in a few months.

I saw this tote and fell in love. The saying is what we all need to keep in mind and have handy especially on those tough days. Purchase as a gift for your niece/nephew or son/daughter that is beginning school this fall or pick one up for yourself to store all of your favorite reading material.
