.: Of Lipsticks & Perfumes :.

I've been doing some really slow and light reading these past few weeks.

I have just finished Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell (the same author for the popular series Sex In The City). Lipstick Jungle tells the stories of three very successful women in their respective field; Victory Ford (a fashion designer), Wendy Healy (President of Parador Pictures) and Nico O'Neilly (a magazine editor).

And also Lisa Kleypas's It Happened One Autumn (which is part of her Wallflower series). It may be just me, but the storyline here is so much similiar to Austen's Pride & Prejudice.

Lilian Bowmen = Elizabeth Bennet, Lord Westcliff = Mark Darcy, Lord St Vincent = Wickham

The storyline is kinda corny and predictable - starting with Lilian who supposedly purchased a magical perfume that would make men fall for her. Overall, I would have to say it's a good read nonetheless :)

Now....more reading to go!~ :)
