The Last Bookstore and Angel's Flight

Hi everyone! It's been about 5 months since I last posted. I'm not sure why I haven't written any posts but I'm back! I miss blogging so much!
A couple of months ago I was able to go to The Last Bookstore and Angel's Flight in Los Angeles with my sister and friends. Here are some pictures that I hope you enjoy!

The bookstore was amazing! It had fun and cute things like this all over the store. 

I purchased a few books and they were discounted at a great price too!

Angel's Flight was so neat! It opened in 1901 and operated until 1969. It wasn't until 2017 that it officially reopened. 

This reminds me of the scene in La La Land when Mia and Sebastian danced. :)

I was really excited when I saw this view because it was in the film 500 Days of Summer when Summer and Tom sat on the bench!

I had a really fun time exploring Los Angeles again. :) I hope you enjoyed this post and sorry the pictures are not the best quality! 

Yours truly, Danielle

What I Have Been Up To + Pride and Prejudice 1980

 My English class is almost over, and though I am sad it is coming to an end, it will be nice to have a break from school! I am currently writing a research paper on the press during the Civil War and the division of Northern and Southern newspapers. It is such an interesting topic and I'm so glad that I am able to write about it! I'm hoping that it will be done very soon; I need 4 more pages by Tuesday... I should probably be writing right now! :) I'm excited for this summer because I hope to do a lot of fun and productive things! I would like to sew, spin, crochet a shawl, journal more often, read (and finish all of JA's books!!), and spend more time with my dear family. Do you have any plans for this summer? 

Amazon prime recently added the 1980 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice! I am so happy! I do have a special place in my heart for the 2005 Pride and Prejudice because that's what introduced me into the world of Jane Austen and period dramas, but this adaption is most accurate to the book and the cast is great.

If you haven't watched this adaptation, you definitely should! Which Pride and Prejudice adaptation is your favorite?

The Enchanting Rose 12th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange--What I Received!


Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose hosted her 12th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange this spring. This was my first time participating and I had a wonderful time! 
When the gift from Janae arrived to my house, I was very excited! She sent me such lovely and sweet things that brightened up my day! I had a great time participating in the exchange and made two new friends because of it. :) Here are the gifts that I received all the way from Pennsylvania: 

Her letter was so sweet! She is very similar to me when I was her age!

Jane Austen socks! :)

I also had a pretzel included in the gift but I ate it before I took the picture! It was so good! :) 
Thank you Stephanie for putting this exchange together and thank you to Janae for sending me the cutest package ever!
